What's on your mind? Perhaps a better question might be, what's up with your stomach? Because if you're one of the estimated 45 million Americans who suffer from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), you know something all too well: IBS feels awful.
IBS is more than just an inconvenience. For many, it's a detriment to their way of life. The average IBS patient is a woman, between 30 and 60. She's almost 35% less productive than her non-IBS stricken co-workers. And she pays upwards of $4,500 in out-of-pocket medical expenses each year. Ouch.
The cause of all this grief? There are several, actually. And fortunately, there is a solution.
Common IBS Triggers
IBS is a highly unique disorder. What sets off irritable bowel syndrome in one patient may leave another unscathed. Having said that, some causes of IBS are more common than others. And if there's anything that can make your insides feel like they're being whipped up by an egg-beater, it would be these folks:
- Lack of Hydrochloric Acid - Your digestive system is a delicate creature that requires an optimum balance of hydrochloric (stomach) acid and digestive enzymes. Without sufficient stomach acid, many IBS patients experience poor nutrient absorption, develop bacterial and protozoal infections and allergic reactions to partially digested food.
- Inflammation of the Gastrointestinal System - Another common IBS trigger, inflammation of the GI tract begins an ugly cycle of food allergies, fatigue, toxic substances leaking into the bloodstream and, notably, gas, constipation and diarrhea. Gotta love those.
- Stress - Studies suggest that up to 60% of IBS patients have a psychological disorder - often anxiety. And more proof that problems of the gut are linked to the brain: 95 per cent of the body's serotonin receptors are located in, you guessed it, the gut.
- Bad Bacteria - Your gut is home to naturally occurring bacteria. Some, like probiotics, are beneficial. Yet, when dangerous bacteria take over, bad things happen, including IBS. Down the road, dangerous bacteria can cause weight gain, chronic pain and perhaps even cancer.
