Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is one of the most frequent bowel problems of the small and large intestine, but it is not based on organ malfunctioning. In reality it is a disorder of the evacuation of the colon that typically appears in adolescence and early adulthood. Nearly 10% of the European population is afflicted with it. Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is more frequent among women than men. Its triggers could be the following: stress, food allergies, eating habits, infections, hormonal changes or the overuse of antibiotics and other medication.

Symptoms strengthen depending on whether the irritable bowel syndrome is occurs in the accompaniment of diarrhoea or not. If there is no diarrhoea, the person may also suffer from constipation. The following symptoms may arise and be common with both forms: bloated stomach, rumbling and growling of the stomach, stomach pain, gasses, painful bowel movement, nausea, tiredness, feelings of indigestion, back pain, and lethargy.

If suffering from irritable bowel syndrome and constipation at the same time, it is recommended to consume Elefix fiber which:

  • has an optimal composition, because it contains high quality fibres which are vital for maintaining a healthy colon
  • gently supports the natural process of defecation – brings relief from constipation and haemorrhoids
  • is one of the most efficient and safest natural solutions for constipation.

What is IBS

Top
The abbreviation IBS derives from the phrase Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Do you often have the unpleasant urge to use the toilet, but you rarely feel successful in the restroom? Do you often feel an intolerance in connection with dairy products? Do you find after consuming dairy products worsening symptoms of bloating and bowel rumbling and diarrhoea? Does this condition, first and foremost diarrhoea, strengthen or propagate in stressful situations? If your answer to the situations described is “yes” then you are likely to have irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). This applies also to people who have problmes like constipation. Constipation sometimes becomes so severe that for the affected people it is difficult to evacuate even just once or twice a week. Painful bloating and bowel rumbling increase from the latest bowel movement on, and the symptoms become increasingly irritating.

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) makes it more difficult for the colon to perate at its optimum level

Top
Its characteristic symptoms are bloating, stomach pain, and a modified functioning of the bowels.

  • “Irritable bowel” – the first part of the name refers to the malfunctioning of the regulation of the bowel which leads to anomalous sensitivity and painful reactions to even normal stimuli
  • “syndrome” – the second part of the name of the intestinal disorder refers to the fact, that it is not a unique illness, but a set of symptoms

Cause of the problems

Top
The most frequent cause is that the bowel peristalsis causing problems while pushing the food further along the digestive tract or malfunctioning in defecation. A healthy person is not aware of this process until the urge to defecate is felt. An irritable bowel works disorderly, alternating between small contractions and stomach cramps, resulting in stomach pain, diarrhoea, constipation, and other problems. Sometimes there is fatigue, back pain, bloated stomach or other symptoms connected to digestion which, according to experts, can be attributed to various allergic reactions and also to inner tension. Irritable bowel syndrome is in the majority of cases the result of acute inflammatory bowel or other diseases, which have been treated with antibiotics based therapy on a long-term basis.

The colon is very sensitive to stress. Experts have noticed that irritable bowel syndrome regularly strikes people who have a busy lifestyle and who often need to process many new, stressful stimuli. The risk of developing IBS differs on an individual basis; it is all a matter of the given individual and his/her own make up and sensibilities. With today’s lifestyle the number of ill people continuously rises.

A too lazy or active bowel

Top
IBS presents itself as problems with evacuation. In such a case you are faced with diarrhoea lasting for even a week, but during stressful periods it may even worsen. The diarrhoea phase is usually followed by a constipation phase. That’s when the bowel does not wish to evacuate, not even if the stimuli are there; the bowel is lazy. It is characteristic of intestinal disorders to experiance painful stomach cramps, feelings of fullness, and a bloated stomach. These problems seem unpleasant and serious, but theoretically the sufferer is not ill, as this is a functional disorder. The symptoms do not have an underlying organic cause, and it is not an inflammation of the intestine either or any other damage to its structure as it is in the case of diverticulosis, cancer, etc. However, due to some unknown reason bowel movement is damaged, sometimes it is fast, at other times slow. If you are experiencing alternating diarrhoea and constipation, the only way to treat it is with rest.

It is often especially difficult to give a precise diagnosis

Top
IBS is one of the disorders of the digestive tract which is not easy to diagnose. Symptoms of IBS are sometimes similar to the symptoms of other digestive difficulties. Its symptoms are often incorrectly attributed to chronic pancreatitis. Apart from basic gastroenterological examinations usually other auxiliary examinations are also needed, such as sonography or colonoscopy. It is necessary to undergo these examinations to eliminate more severe organic diseases of the digestive tract like inflammated colon, celiac disease, digestion and absorption disorders, or diseases of the pancreas. Diarrhoea and constipation also often accompany such serious diseases as cancer or inflammation of the colon. However, the difference with these diseases is that there is no blood in the stool, which is never part of the clinical record of IBS!

The physician first needs to exclude all other possibilities. If all other results are negative and nothing points to another health problem, then can the physician, in clear conscience, state the diagnosis of irritable bowel syndrome.

If you are careful and take good care of your good health, then there is a relatively high hope of recovery.If, due to an inappropriate treatment, the symptoms last for years, the situation is not hopeless.

Fears of irritable bowel syndrome leading to cancer are mostly unfounded, because the constipation would have to last several years in order for it to be connected to the risk of developing colon cancer.

What are the solutions?

Top
By changing lifestyle, eliminating of stress and improving ways of controlling stress irritable bowel syndrome can be prevented. Frequent exercise improves bowel function. People frequently under stress are recommended to slow down and not to get distracted by reading, listening to the radio or smoking during defecation. It is advisable to sleep minimum seven hours a day, reduce the intake of fats, and increase the intake of proteins andfibre.

  • In case of stomach cramps a warm compress on the stomach or a hot bath may help a lot.
  • Do drink alcohol or coffee; and do not smoke, as all these encourage peristalsis and promote diarrhoea.
  • Pay attention to which food causes problems and avoid it. Do not eat fried and fatty, spicy foods, or sweets containing mannitol or sorbitol which cause bloating.
  • In case of constipation it is very important to practice the defecation reflex. Choose a recurring time fo defecation – the optimum time being in the morning.
  • If you have difficulties with defecation, a massage of the underbelly or a galss of lukewarm water may be of help.
  • High-fibre foods may also help a lot, but avoid foods that can cause bloating.

To eat and not to eat

Top
If you are suffering from IBS, the question is very important. When treating IBS it is required to regulate eating habits depending on whether one is suffering from diarrhoea or constipation. People suffering from diarrhoea should eliminate the types of food from their menu known to cause frequent loose stools or bloating.Apart from dairy products, legumes, carbonated drinks and yeast dough coule be mentioned here. In such a case fibre should also be limited. With constipation, however, it is necessary to increase the amount of fibre. Whole-grain bakery products, cereals, vegetables and fruit (possibly without having been peeled) are rich in fibre.

  • Avoid: dairy products that are sweetened or have a high fat content, pastries, wheat, foods containing too much sugar, coffee, alcohol, fried foods, ice cream, orange and grapefruit juice, nuts, instant products, as well as red meat.
  • Consume: yogurts with live probiotic cultures, whole-grain rice, vegetables and fruit, fish and poultry. Garlic may also be useful, as it supports digestion and decomposes toxic substances in the bowel.
