IBS Affecting You? Try These 4 Suggestions
A healthy diet can help the body in its efforts to heal itself, and in some cases, particular foods can lessen symptoms. To address problems commonly associated with irritable bowel syndrome, or IBS, try the following:
- Eliminate milk and milk products.
- Eliminate all caffeine sources.
- Increase dietary fiber by eating more whole grains, bran cereal, fruits and vegetables. An exception to this group for some is that eliminating gluten, which is found in wheat, barley and rye can be beneficial. Do some trials for several weeks and see what works best for you.
- Avoid products sweetened with sorbitol or xylitol or non-dairy milks or foods containing carrageenan.
