A stomach disease bit popular call with Irritable Bowel Syndrome that affects as many as 15-20% of the population, hard to live with for those who suffer, where the daily form of the stomach sometimes affects all life.
What is Irritable Bowel Syndrome ?
IBS, which accounts for Irritable Bowel Syndrome, is a functional gastrointestinal disease, it is estimated that the disease affects approximately 15-20% of the world’s population. IBS is called avenon colon irritable, irritable bowel, dandruff, stress or dizziness. Those who suffer have problems like pain, gases, bloating and ablation, but no direct “mistake” is found in investigations. It can be anything from a bubble in the way of actually being forced to stay home from work due to the trouble of the stomach. It is very individual exactly how the disease is expressed and how many symptoms you have. In order to diagnose IBS, the problems should be repeated for at least 3 months. A doctor can diagnose by excluding other “more dangerous” gastrointestinal diseases and, among other things, take a gluten and lactose test. Most importantly, the victim is feeling safe in his diagnosis and is not worried about other diseases.
In our profession as dieters we meet many patients who have had stomach problems for several years without having received so much help. Some people feel they are not taken seriously when they seek care with these problems and have always been treated so well. There is also a large dark area where many are affected without actually getting a diagnosis. Of those seeking help, about 80% are women.
Stress is a big bow in the drama
The causes of Irritable Bowel Syndrome are still not fully known, but several factors are involved in the development of these problems. The inheritance factor is approximately 20-50% and you know that the intestinal tract for various reasons does not work as it should. Both genes, intestinal flora and lifestyle probably play a part in the appearance.
Many people feel that stress and anxiety exacerbate the symptoms, and therefore, it has previously been thought that the disease was psychosomatic only, which helped to make it difficult for help. Now, we know better than that, but diet and stress are of paramount importance to the formation of symptoms.
We see a clear connection between IBS and high-performing people. In many of those affected by the disease, there is often both burnout and other stress problems. Since we have very strong connections between the brain and the stomach, our stomach is affected by stress and anxiety. Even the connections between the stomach and the brain, how we feel clean generally because of our stomach are also becoming more and more noticeable.
Downswing, yoga and diet important
According to our experience, the best treatment is to get tools for working with both diet and stress management. Knowledge of the disease, the body and understanding of what is happening is very important. It is incredibly rewarding to work with this kind of overall treatment when so many get so much better.
We often go full speed in body and mind. When we do not turn down enough and constantly bear some worries or stress we are having problems. Swallowing and recovery is needed for the body to melt the food. Yoga’s calm movements and deep breaths are especially effective in balancing the stomach. Yoga also increases blood circulation and body flow throughout the body and some movements may act as an internal massage for the stomach and intestines. The deep breath allows you to relax and reduce stress by activating the body’s recovery functions in the form of the parasympathetic nervous system. This, in turn, gives your body space to take care of the food in a better way.
When it comes to diet, FODMAP, a scientifically advanced dietary treatment, has proven to be very effective. The treatment is based on first removing disturbing specific carbohydrates and then specifically adding them to find their worst cows. The treatment should be performed in consultation with a dietician, personally or through IBS school online for best results. The first thing that is noticed is that the stomach becomes quiet and calm because FODMAP removes gas-forming molecules. Together with lifestyle changes and different forms of stress management, you get the best results. About 75% of those receiving treatment are helped with their stomach problems.
