How I beat and deal with IBS or irritable bowel syndrome

Updated on August 27, 2010

Irritable Bowel Syndrome starts around age 20. This is HowI beat beat IBS(Irritable Bowel Syndrome)Ever since I was 15 I remember having this horrible stomach pain, especailly after I ate something, got stressed or nervous. I just thought thats what nerves did to you. But I noticed it for years especiall at work then when I would come home I would be fine or i'd be fine in the morning if I had off of work or school. For years I would just holdit in and deal with the pain. I have had IBS for 11 years now and it's something that you never get use to.  The pain just keeps getting worse and worse as you try to ignore it.

What causes Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Irritable Bowel Syndrome is something that i usually passed along in families so alot of it i genetics. Point proven with me. My Mother, brother, grandma, great grandma, grandpa and great grandpa have it. Each one is triggered by different things. Their is nothing known of right now that causes IBS it's just in the family.

Will Diet or Foods help control or cause symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Foods that I found inflame my cramps from IBS are

  • Fast Food
  • Greasy Food
  • Sometimes Dairy
  • Foods high in Fat
  • High Caffeine
  • Beer
  • Chocolate

Not all these are foods that cause symptoms to worsen but are foods I find make me feel worse and others I talk to. Also eating 5 small meals during your day instead of 2-3 big meals. Big meals tend to cause cramping and pain because your stomach might be working to hard.  It's usually caused from your intestines pushing food to fast or too slow.  That's why it seems your in the bathroom after each meal or any stressful situation.

Here a couple of books I love and have helped me out since their is no treatment for IBS then it's up to each other to do research to help everyone out. These books are great they give you things you can do to lessen cramping, abdominal pain, what to eat, what not to eat. Take a look at them.  Try to eat a healthy non processed diet.  Also Probiotics work well for some people other it doesn't it's again one of those trial and error things.
