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 in most cases, stress is the direct cause of irritable bowel syndrome.
To understand why this happens, you also need to understand the mechanism of the intestine. The main functions of the colon are absorption of water and minerals as well as waste’s excretion from the body. The latter role occurs through the contraction of muscles of the colon’s walls as well as the release of mucus.
Probably, for many, it will seem surprising, 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 informing 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 level of 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:
Personal diet plays an essential role in the development of IBS. There are specific categories of food, which contributes to the appearance of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
Colonic irrigation in our clinic allows us to strengthen the muscles and restore the capacity of the colon. This measure contributes to the health of the whole body.
