Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a disorder that affects the stomach and intestines, also called the gastrointestinal tract. This disorder of gut–brain interaction is characterized by abdominal pain associated with a change in frequency or form of bowel habit.

Symptoms include cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, and diarrhea or constipation, or both and can start in. childhood.

Gut bacterial dysbiosis is frequently seen as intestinal bacterial overgrowth that affects the GI that can be managed by dietary and lifestyle modifications to create optimal conditions for beneficial bacteria to thrive.

Evidence of the human microbiome was first discovered by an Austrian pediatrician named Theodor Escherich, who discovered a type of bacteria (later named Escherichia coli) in the intestines.

Although scientists have yet to determine exactly mechanism of action on how microbiomes have gone from dysbiosis to IBS, what we do know is that high consumption of a variety of whole foods, healthy fatty acids, prebiotic fiber, low consumption of ultra-processed foods, sugar, alcohol, and daily physical activity such as walking daily can work wonders for the brain, body, and gut.
