Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

The fact that one in four people suffer from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) makes it one of the most common medical conditions in the world. The disease is also known as intestinal neurosis.

In comparison with other diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, IBS stands out the most. After all, it would seem nothing can provoke it. Besides, in patients with IBS, there is usually no damage to the intestinal mucosa by pathogens. There is also no pathology from the tissues of the intestinal tract of inorganic origin. Nevertheless, the illness still unexpectedly happens. Numerous surveys cannot establish what happens to the human body when the disease appears.


Medical scientists commonly suggest that stress is the direct cause of irritable bowel syndrome in most cases.

To understand why this happens, you also need to understand the mechanism of the intestine. The colon’s primary functions are the absorption of water and minerals and waste excretion from the body. The latter role occurs through the contraction of muscles of the colon’s walls and the release of mucus.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS): causes of development.

It will probably seem surprising to many, but the intestine does not always work by itself automatically. In stressful situations, malfunctions take place. The brain gives wrong signals to the intestines and, in turn, incorrectly informs the mind of the processes occurring in it. There is a violation of intestinal motility. The slightest discomfort in the intestines causes severe pain. It is due to another critical circumstance in which the disease develops – an increased sensitivity to pain.


However, stress and low pain thresholds are often not the only factors causing the illness. In most cases, there is a whole range of reasons.

Circumstances that contribute to the development of IBS:

  • dysbacteriosis;
  • irregular and unbalanced nutrition;
  • a sedentary lifestyle;
  • genetic predisposition;
  • violation of hormonal balance in women.

Personal diet plays an essential role in the development of IBS. Some specific categories of food contribute to the appearance of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
