Irritable Bowel Syndrome

A set of symptoms occurring together is called a syndrome. Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is caused by irritability in the digestive system. IBS is also known as “irritable colon” or “spastic colon.” The last five to seven feet of you bowel is called the large intestine or colon. It main purpose is to store food that cannot be digested. When the bowel becomes irritated, there is a change in bowel habit and you may experience periods of diarrhea, constipation and/or stomach pains. Other symptoms are nausea and a swollen stomach caused by trapped gas within the colon. Stomach pain is usually relieved by a bowel movement or passage of gas and may be described as crampy, aching, stain, piercing or excruciating. Whatever the case, the pains usually interfere with sleep and cause severe discomfort. The cause is usually poor eating habits with too many fatty foods not being properly digested. Stress is also recognized as a cause.

Diet is the chief culprit. People who eat excess fats usually lack the fiber and bulking foods that are required by the colon to regulate bowel function. Smoking is also a cause, as nicotine is known as an irritant of the colon.
