The Prevention and Treatment of Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common gastrointestinal disorder. The cause of IBS remains unknown, although stress is considered to be a significant factor in many cases. In cases of IBS, a small region of the intestinal tract contracts and goes into a minor spasm, and sometimes restricting passage of fecal matter through the intestinal tract. The spasm can lead to pain and the restriction of fecal matter passage causing distension of the intestinal tract. Symptoms include abdominal bloating, pain and soreness, gas, and alternating diarrhea and constipation. People with IBS are more likely than others to have backaches, fatigue, and several other seemingly unrelated problems.
