Do you suffer from IBS? Do recurrent gastrointestinal symptoms like diarrhea, cramps, constipation, nausea, bloating etc. bother you?

Try these ideas to treat your IBS safely without medications:

  • Eat at strict regular intervals.
  • Get probiotics. Checks diarrhea and bloating.
  • Eat high fiber foods and warm fluids for constipation.
  • Enjoy ginger tea! Fights digestive trouble, gas and nausea. Fresh ginger can be grated into boiling tea for a soothing drink.
  • Keeping a lemon with you can be handy. Sniffing it helps to fight off nausea. Cardamom and peppermint are two other aromatic herbs that helps curb nausea.
  • Reduce gassy foods.
  • Check for food allergies. Your colon may be a sensitive one.
  • Get a good night’s sleep. Poor sleep aggravates digestive problems.
  • Practice Yoga. Certain poses like Parighasana and Ardha Matsendrasana are some of the Yogasanas which help soothe IBS.
  • Try pranayama. Anulom vilom pranayama helps to de-stress the body and calm the system. Ujjayi pranayama helps sooth the digestive system.

Remember, IBS is often a problem in your head, your brain. When stress overrides your nervous system, the nervous system communicates that to your gut and you end with all those nasty symptoms.
