Tips to Beat Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) :

1.Learn how to eat

The first step to controlling IBS is eating properly. And not just what you eat, but when and how. Eat little and often and at regular times.

Your digestive system will then get into a good routine and eating smaller amounts will avoid bloating and diarrhoea.

Also eat slowly. Gulping food quickly can make you swallow air, which results in wind and bloating. Chew well and drink lots of water.

2 Change your pattern

Eat your biggest meals earlier in the day and have a light evening meal. Also have foods that are harder to digest like raw fruit and vegetables before 4pm.

3 Soothe yourself

Different herbs and supplements can ease the symptoms of IBS. Calcium supplements are thought to counteract diarrhoea as it slows down gut contractions.

Experts recommend linseed for constipation, while artichoke can help digestive complaints, especially after eating fatty foods.

Finally, taking 500mg of turmeric extract once a day can also help because of its anti-inflammatory properties.

4 Keep on moving

Regular exercise can r­educe bloating and constipation in IBS ­sufferers. Even 30 minutes of moderate exercise like brisk walking or yoga five times a week will help.

5 Peppermint oil

Taken in tea, oil, herb or capsule form, ­peppermint oil can help alleviate symptoms by relaxing the intestinal muscles.

Peppermint tea bags are readily available or just add a few drops of oil to half a glass of warm water.

6 Try different things

There are a number of complementary therapies that might ease ­symptoms, including reflexology, aromatherapy, massage, acupressure and yoga.

Find one that suits you.

7 Be prepared

Many sufferers dread going out for meals for fear the stress will trigger symptoms. But planning ahead is key.

First, find out where the loo is as soon as you arrive so you know you can get there easily if you need to.

Try to have a look at the menu before you go so you can carefully pick out the safest foods for you. Lots of ­restaurants have their menus online.

If you’re afraid of things going wrong, take some preventative medication before you go out.

Don’t overeat. ­Finally, relax as stress could risk an attack.

8 Black pepper

It might not seem that powerful, but black pepper can make a big difference.

Black pepper oil soothes cramps and relieves wind and also stimulates a sluggish digestive system.

9 Breathe slowly

Some people swallow air when they’re anxious, adding to the problem of wind and bloating.

Learn to control this by practising abdominal breathing.

Sit comfortably with your shoulders lowered and relaxed. Breathe in slowly through both nostrils and count to five, expanding your tummy.

Hold for five seconds and then exhale to a count of five, drawing your stomach in.

10 Sleep tight

Too little sleep or poor sleep has been shown to have a direct impact on the severity of IBS, so avoid caffeine later in the day.

The stomach normally secretes acid that is essential in the digestive process and helps in breaking down the food during digestion. Normally, there are some protective mechanisms against the acid, in the stomach & proximal intestine. An imbalance between the protective mechanisms & the level of acid secretion can cause acidity. Acidity can be managed by avoiding the known causative factors. Acidity can be effectively treated by Homeopathy. Homeopathy works by giving a tiny dose of a remedy whose characteristics are similar to those of the person who needs that remedy. The remedy stimulates the individual's own vital force, or immune system, encouraging the body to heal itself. Homeopathic medicines are Made of natural substances and completely safe with no side effects. You can consult me online via Lybrate for further evaluation and homeopathic medicines. Your feedback matters. Thank-you.

While doing potty sometimes blood comes out. Suggest me some medicine to cure this.

BHMS
Homeopath, Chennai
If blood is bright red it may be due to lower gi bleeding (piles, fissures, fistula) but if dark it may be due to upper gi (ulcerative colitis, intestinal ulcers, etc) related so first I advice you to visit a general surgeon and diagnose the disease but for treatment you can take homoeopathic treatment cause it eradicates disease from root.

Burn in penis seems to be due to urogenital infection we have to investigate to confirm infection in urine so kindly get urine r/m done and consult again with reports and follow advises given below: 1. Drink lot of water 2. Maintain hygiene 3. Avoid synthetic undergarment and prefer cotton I am giving you some tips to prevent constipation: 1. Take 6-8 glass of water in a day 2. Regular physical activity keeping mobile and active will greatly reduce your risk of getting constipation. Ideally do at least 150 minutes of physical activity every week. 3. You should have about 30 g of fibre a day. You can increase your fibre intake by eating more: I am giving you list of some fibre containing food fruit vegetables wholegrain rice whole wheat pasta wholemeal bread seeds oats 4. Toilet habits never ignore the urge to go to the toilet consult physician for further management.

Yes. You should get it operated. Its the only wise decision you should take. Keeping gallstones is far more dangerous than getting it operated.

Hello, you should go to a naturopath personally, he will set this displacement of naval. Correct and regular yogic treatment will eliminate this trouble within a short period, sometimes 3 to 4 days. The displacement is caused by picking up heavy objects, a sudden twisting or bending movement, sexual activity. So be careful. Thanks.
