Common Symptoms of IBS

The most common symptom that IBS sufferers experience is abdominal cramping and discomfort. If you have irritable bowel syndrome, you probably have cramps in your stomach that are similar to cramps that you'd experience if you've taken a laxative. However, sufferers of IBS also experience stomach bloating, indigestion, gas, bowel movement changes, diarrhea, and mucus in their stools. You may manifest some of those irritable bowel syndrome symptoms in addition to having painful stomach cramps. 

Irritable Bowel Syndrome Causes

A variety of conditions and situations can cause a person to develop IBS. Intestinal diseases and inflammations can cause the symptoms to flare frequently. Irritable bowel syndrome can also happen if a person has a nervous system abnormality. Furthermore, IBS symptoms can flare if an individual has a sudden change in gut microflora. A gut microflora change can occur because of dietary changes.  

Treatment Options for IBS

You can go about treating IBS in a variety of ways. One method that you may not have heard about is Nutrition Response Testing ®. Dr. Carter can go over your diet with you and then advise you on healthy alternatives that are less likely to cause you painful gut reactions. A holistic chiropractor, like Dr. Carter, can use chiropractic massage methods, relaxation techniques, or a variety of exercise and workout tips that are geared to get your gastrointestinal system operating at an optimal level. Irritable bowel syndrome care does not have to involve taking medications. You can take a completely holistic approach and recover gracefully and without side effects.
