Introduction:For those who suffer from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), making a few lifestyle changes can eliminate or greatly lessen symptoms of IBS.

  • 01

    Change In Diet

    You will need a diet plan to ensure that symptoms from IBS become less debilitating or nonexistent. Fast foods will really make those IBS symptom kick into high gear. Most of the fast foods we all know and love are loaded with an enemy of IBS and that enemy is high fat! Those bubbles in carbonated drinks should be avoided if IBS is to be less of a problem. Also, any food item that lists fructose or sorbitol as an ingredient should be avoided by an IBS sufferer.

  • 02

    Alcohol and High-Fructose Corn Syrup

    If you enjoy alcoholic drinks and you have IBS, then it is time to eliminate alcoholic drink as a beverage you enjoy. Alcohol makes IBS symptoms worse. Even high-fructose corn syrup can cause an IBS sufferer to experience a flare-up of distressing symptoms.

  • 03

    Goodbye Gum

    Darn it! Those folks who love to chew gum and also have to deal with IBS should spit that gum out and never chew it again if they want to keep IBS symptoms at bay. Chewing away happily on a piece of gum kicks those IBS symptoms up several notches due to the constant intake of air that occurs doing the chewing process.

  • 04

    Smoking Not Allowed

    A smoker with IBS is in for a lot of burping. Gas and bloating also bother smokers who have IBS more than IBS non-smokers. Smokers take in a lot of air with all those puffs on a cigarette and that swallowed air makes IBS symptoms rear their ugly heads.

  • 05

    Reduce Stress

    Since IBS symptoms are due to mental and physical factors, it is best for IBS sufferers to reduce stress through exercise. A stressed-out IBS sufferer will experience abdominal pain due to the nerves that control the contractions of the colon. Regular exercise will reduce stress and keep the nerves in the colon working normally and thus keep abdominal pain away.
