How many of you have found when you’re eating, you have to put your plate down, to run to the bathroom real fast? If this is the case you may have been diagnosed with IBS also known as Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a disorder that leads to abdominal pain and cramping, changes in bowel movements, and other symptoms. IBS is not the same as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which includes Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. In IBS, the structure of the bowel is not abnormal.
Shortly after turning 20 I had my gallbladder removed, and right after giving birth to my daughter is when I noticed a change in the way I went to the bathroom. It seemed as though I couldn’t finish a meal without having to make a mad dash to the closest bathroom. I was always told I had IBS, and this was the cause.
I wouldn’t bother going to sit down restaurants, because I knew half my time would be spent in the bathroom. It wasn’t until I started to eat cleaner, that I discovered my bathroom times were once again making a change. This time for the better, I could actual get through a meal or two before the urge to go came upon me.
While irritable bowl syndrome maybe a real disorder, I have found by changing what you eat, can help with the issues at hand. Now I am no doctor, I can only state what I noticed, however, I can almost bet those who were diagnosed with IBS, have a tendency to either, eat out a lot, or eat not so good for you food.
When we put foods in our body, that were not really intended for our bodies, this is when we irritate our bowels, which leads to use rushing to the bathroom in hopes we don’t crap our pants.
If you suffer from IBS, try to change the way you eat, I did, and while my anxiety makes me have to go to the bathroom, I no longer have the urges to go while eating.
