Irritable bowel syndrome affects 5 million Canadians and affects men and women of all ages, but is more common among women under 45 years old. Despite its negative impact on everyday life, SCI does not lead to cancer or other diseases of the digestive system, and its symptoms ‘diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain and bloating’ can be alleviated.

Keep a Diary of Your Diet and Eat Healthily

If you are having diarrhea, constipation or too much flatulence, keep a daily diary of your diet in which you will note everything you ate, your symptoms and When they appear: immediately after the meal, an hour or several hours later. The Canadian Digestive Health Foundation (CDHF) says that this journal will give you an accurate picture of discomforting foods.

Unfortunately, some healthy foods such as legumes, broccoli, and cauliflower can sometimes trigger the symptoms of IBS. However, before you remove these nutrient-rich foods from your diet, show your food diary to your doctor or nutritionist to discuss it. With them, you will be able to develop a plan that allows you to eat healthy meals and snacks without suffering the pain and discomfort of SCI.

Do not wait to go to the toilet

When you feel the need to go to relieve yourself, do not wait. Resisting the need to go to the bathroom will only worsen your symptoms and discomfort.


Enough Sleep Quality sleep deprivation can exacerbate an ICS. Sleep and get up at regular times and take at least seven hours of sleep per night.

You will probably sleep better if you exercise regularly during the week. The Canadian Digestive Health Foundation recommends 20 to 30 minutes of exercise at least three times a week. Physical activity helps intestinal transit so that normal contractions facilitate the passage of the food bolus, which decreases constipation and painful flatulence. Exercise is also good for relieving stress, which is another cause of IBS symptoms.

Attention to laxatives

When your intestines seem lazy, and you feel stuck, your first reaction might be to take laxatives. However, before taking any medication in this direction, seek advice from your doctor or pharmacist to make sure it is safe for you and your symptoms. According to the Mayo Clinic, misuse of these products can cause more harm than good. Taking too much or not enough is not okay for your SCI. Read the packing instructions carefully, and if you have any questions, ask your healthcare, provider.
