Home remedies for IBS 

  1. Fiber

This means that you have to include beans, strawberries, apples and oatmeal into your diet. If you can’t get the fibers from “nature” try taking supplements on  daily basis. Try psyllium and make sure you follow the indicated dosage. If you are complaining about constipation instead, try getting these fibers from whole wheat grains and salad greens. Just make sure to increase these quantities gradually. Too much fiber out of the sudden can only give you gas.

  1. Liquids

Try and drink six- eight glasses of water. This will help the fiber move through your system and a good rhythm. Tea is also excellent , especially peppermint tea which will help your intestines relax and relieve any gas pain. Opt for tea bags with real peppermint and not black tea with a hint of peppermint.

  1. Ginger tea

This hot drink is also ideally used in IBS. Ginger is well known for solving any digestive problems, especially IBS. Drink  minimum four cups of ginger tea a day.

  1. Dairy products

Having diarrhea as an IBS symptom means that  the good bacteria is drained away and you are left unprotected against the harmful ones. So you have to eat yoghurt because of its richness acidophilus. This contains active bacteria which is what your organisms needs. Make sure that you also eat smaller meals, because too much food can over stimulate your digestive system. It’s also important to take the time and chew your food thoroughly, because if you don’t , you will then be confronted with the embarrassing intestinal gas.

  1. Exercise and relax

A 30 minute walk in the park or jogging can relieve stress and of course release the endorphins that your body is in need of. This will help your digestive system more than you can imagine.
