Those who suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) experience feelings of discomfort in their abdomen, and unpleasant symptoms such as bloating, constipation, cramping, and overall digestive pain. IBS affects about 45 million people in the US. It arises from issues in the gastrointestinal tract, or when there is an imbalance in the gut. Unfortunately, there is no medical test to confirm a diagnosis.
Treating it requires a process of elimination and trial and error. Symptoms may occur at any point in life, as well as return after having been previously resolved. It is more common in women, but present in men as well. Thankfully, some remedies may be of assistance for those searching for quick and natural relief.
