IBS Irritable Bowel Syndrome – Part 2 – Nutrition by Natalie

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or spastic colon is a functional bowel disorder characterized by abdominal pain and changes in bowel habits which are more… not associated with any abnormalities seen on routine clinical testing. It is fairly common and makes up 20–50% of visits to gastroenterologists. Lower abdominal pain, and bloating associated with alteration of bowel habits and abdominal discomfort relieved with defecation are the most frequent symptoms. IBS is highly prevalent in the Western world, but despite the advancement of many theories, no clear cause has yet been established. Stress—feeling mentally or emotionally tense, troubled, angry, or overwhelmed—may trigger symptoms in people with IBS. One study found that women with IBS are more likely to report prior physical or sexual abuse; almost half of the patients reported prior abuse. IBS is not fatal nor is it linked to the development of other serious bowel diseases. However, due to the chronic pain, discomfort, and other symptoms, work absenteeism, social phobias, and other negative quality-of-life effects can be common in more serious cases. Individuals who find a caring primary caregiver and/or sufficient self-help options should be able to develop a successful treatment program for their symptoms and lead normal lives. www.nutritionbynatalie.com http www.youtube.com

  1. hey natalie, just curious, when you were being worked up for your tummy troubles, how thorough were the physical/abdominal exams that the various doctors did? were they able to feel anything abnormal in your belly, like a palpable section of colon that was tender or were your abdominal exams all normal?

  4. I’ve had ibs since I was 14 and I’m now 19 and it seems to have got worse.I eat healthy and go to the gym everyday but it doesn’t seem to go I’ve tried medication from my doctor but that doesn’t work neither if anything it ends up been worse.I’ve been absent from college so many days because of ibs and it makes me depressed not been able to do stuff I want to. :((

  5. Is it still possible for me to eat fatty foods after I’m symptom free? Am I restricted to eat fat for the rest of my life?

  6. i have ibs for nearly 2 years and had Omeprazole which only helped with acid as i read on the leaflet. the peppermint oil is the only other thing my doctor gave me and it didn’t work. tried not eating when it was really bad + kind of worked for a bit and trying paracentamol + painkillers helps a little i now have constipation while it hurts it is so much better than my other symtoms i even started praying when i dnt really believe in that stuff when in pain this is y suicide should be made legal

  7. beginning part of your video is really annoying, especially when someone is having an ibs moment. but there on after is really pleasant. you are simply drop dead gorgeous. anyway, you talked about ibs with diarrhea, do you have any insights on ibs with constipation? thanks. 🙂

  8. IBS is destroying my life 🙁 & am willing to try ANYTHING, I like what you had to say about the enzymes & pro biotitic, however I am confused. Can you take the two together, or does one wipe the other out?

  9. I suffer tremendously and am willing to try ANYTHING, I like what you had to say about the enzymes & pro biotitic, however I am confused. Can you take the two together, or does one wipe the other out?

  10. @globetrekker420 do you get that feeling to go to the bathroom right after you have gone.. like a bloating gas feeling…..and it wont come out….my system is really screwed up…i get bloated ,,i guess intestinal spasms,,,then it calms away..then it comes back for hours till a little bit of gas comes out ..then im fine till it comes back again…it feels like a deep pressure on my lower tummy…a pushing feeling like if i have to let gas out,,but nothing comes out…major cramps,,,,

  11. @kristinjardim like do you know where they come from or what causes them? And do you know anything to help calm them down?

  12. @globetrekker420 I had IBS I still have it as you can’t completely cure it but all I have done is that I stopped with all the dairy products (ether drink lactose free milk or soya milk, instead of butter use soya spread), cook in olive oil, drink lots of water and very important stop eating bread (you can eat bread thankfully they make weat and gluten free breads). after couple of months you will feel better.

  13. @19Slim68 after while you can eat fatty foods but only once in a while but you have to keep your healthy diet.

  14. Whatever you do, don’t eat peanuts, cos afterwards, they give you the most extreme pain ever :/ It took me 4 days just to rid of the awful thing.

  15. Also try to eliminate the most common food allergens – that’s dairy, gluten, yeast, eggs, corn, soy, and peanuts. Then try to reintroduce them to see if they cause symptoms. Food allergies can play a role in recurring ibs and it never hurts to get tested for food allergies.

  16. I have problems with my tummy and my parents says its ibs but seeing other ppl with Ibs this doesnt seem like ibs.. my problem is way worse and it feels like im going to die all the fucking time 🙁 im a ‘hospital case’
