There are many schools of thought on how best to treat irritable bowel syndrome or IBS from monitoring your diet closely and reducing certain food groups including wheat, to reducing your soluble fibre intake and maybe taking some peppermint oil to reduce the amount of calcium moving to your intestines and muscle cells. When it comes to treating irritable bowel syndrome however, there is never a one size fits all strategy, it’s a matter of trying, testing and evaluating progress and just because a solution worked for one person it doesn’t necessarily mean it will work for you. This article will look at some of the more natural remedies for treating irritable bowel syndrome and how you can integrate these remedies seamlessly into your daily routines.

One of the most popular natural remedies for treating irritable bowel syndrome is peppermint oil. This option is believed to decrease the amount of calcium moving to the muscle cells and intestines and thus target the symptoms of IBS directly – the main benefit from using peppermint oil is that it is thought it will reduce excessive muscle contraction. There have been many studies done on the effects of peppermint oil on IBS and generally, around eight out of twelve of the most popular studies, suggest that it does have a positive impact. The main side effect from peppermint oil is that it can cause heartburn if you take the wrong form – you should only ever take the oil in enteric-coated capsules. Excessive doses may also result in nausea, nervous system disorder or loss of appetite, thus its import to monitor the impact it has on your condition carefully and limit your intake accordingly.

Another popular option is probiotics, these are often referred to as “healthy bacteria”. These are microbial organisms that are naturally present in one’s digestive system and potentially prevent the promotion of harmful bacteria in a sufferer’s system. They can also help produce vitamin K and improve immune function.
