Natural solutions for irritable bowel syndrome
The longer it takes for the muscle contractions to move the stool through the colon, the harder the stool becomesand the tougher it is to pass. By contrast, water won’t be absorbed from the stool if muscle spasms push it through too rapidly, leading to diarrhea. Gas can also get trapped along the way, causing discomfort. Sometimes people with IBS pass mucus with their bowel movements. People with this disease also appear to be extra sensitive to distention of the colon. Studies using balloons to distend the colon have shown that patients with IBS experience pain and feel bloated at balloon pressures and volumes that are significantly lower than those that cause symptoms in people without the condition. Recent studies also have shown that neurotransmitters, chemicals that pass signals between nerves, are particularly active in the gastrointestinal tracts of people with the condition. One neurotransmitter in particular, serotonin, appears to be especially active in the blood and colon of people with IBS. These high levels of serotonin may stem in part from life stresses: The colon has many connections to the brain and central nervous system, which responds to stress and emotional upsets. And more than half of patients seen by a physician for IBS report stressful life events just before or at the same time as the onset of symptoms. Infection may also play a role in the causation of IBS.
