Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common condition, associated with a range of symptoms including abdominal cramping, bloating, diarrhoea and constipation.
The exact cause of IBS is still not certain. IBS may stem from a problem with the nerves that control the bowels.
IBS can be uncomfortable but is usually harmless. Many people worry about cancer and you may feel like you need reassurance that this is not the case. Ask your Pharmacist or doctor if you experience the symptoms above or are concerned if your symptoms change.
While there is no cure for IBS, lifestyle changes, such as changing diet, keeping active and managing stress, can greatly help improve symptoms. If lifestyle changes are not enough, your doctor may prescribe medication.
Your local Life Pharmacist is a helpful source of information as well. They can discuss your symptoms and recommend supplements, including probiotics, that may help improve overall symptoms.
During the cooler months, it’s important to consume foods that enhance the immune system and support the immune defences against ills and chills. Here’s how maintaining a healthy gut can help keep you feeling vital this season.
