Constipation Relief – Treating IBS
If you have been diagnosed with IBS, you know
the lack of joy that comes with this diagnosis. You never know
what your body is going to like or rebel against when it comes
to the meals you eat. One day you could be fine and the same
meal another day could make you feel as if your intestines are
on fire or being crushed, or both! IBS (or irritable bowel syndrome)
can be very painful and really impact your quality of life.
IBS is known by a few of its distinguishing traits – abdominal cramping and pain and often bouts of diarrhea and constipation that switch back and forth. This will leave you looking for pain, diarrhea and constipation relief.
So, what can you do about it? Well at this point there is no real cure for IBS, but there are some things that have been shown to make things a little better. Here's a look:
Drugs – There are some drugs on the market that are claiming to be able to help with the symptoms of IBS, but often these have a number of side effects that are worse than the initial problem you were dealing with! Often you want to make these drugs your last resort.
Natural Supplements – There are a few natural supplements that are often recommended as a way to help out when it comes to finding relief for IBS. Peppermint oil is one of these. Peppermint oil is often thought to have a settling effect on the digestive tract and is said to help lessen the impact of IBS symptoms. Aloe is another option. Aloe is often used as constipation relief as it is a healer and a lubricating force at the same time. Not only will it help to clear waste out of the system, it may also help to repair any damage to your body.
Colon Cleanses – Another option that can get your body working on a fair playing field is a colon cleanse. This is often used as a constipation relief option, but can be much more than that. In addition to constipation relief, this can allow your body to clean out any waste that may be backed up in your system. This backed up waste can be a major irritant and may be a part of your IBS pain. Using a colon cleanse to clear out your intestines may help you immediately see a lessening of your symptoms.
