How To Manage IBS

The most frequent IBS symptoms include cramps, bloating, appearance changes, and bowel frequency.


If you have persistent bowel changes or other IBS symptoms, visit a doctor.

When To See Doctor

Digestive nerve issues might lead your body to overreact to digestive changes. Pain, diarrhea, and constipation can ensue.

Nervous System

IBS can result from severe diarrhea caused by bacteria or viruses, called gastroenteritis. IBS may be linked to intestinal bacterial overgrowth.

Severe Infection

IBS symptoms often stem from food. Record what you consume to determine which foods cause IBS. Visit a nutritionist too.

Changes To Diet

Increased physical activity may help IBS. Exercise reduces stress and stimulates intestinal contractions, which may ease discomfort.

Be More Active

Mindfulness and relaxation can help IBS sufferers notice body sensations without tension. It can improve mental and physical health.

Reduce Stress

If nutrition, lifestyle, and stress don't help, a doctor may prescribe fiber supplements, laxatives, or other drugs.

Try IBS Drugs

After trying all the other approaches, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) can help with IBS symptoms. CBT for IBS seeks to understand how stress and fear affect symptoms.


Alternative therapies, such as acupuncture and therapeutic massage, have also been demonstrated to help manage some IBS symptoms.
