Diet in irritable bowel syndrome

Irritable bowel Syndrome is a disorder of digestion characterized by frequent, usually experienced in the daytime, discomfort or abdominal pain, bloating and a feeling of incomplete bowel emptying, constipation and diarrhea.

Diet is an important factor in restoring normal bowel function.

To correct this dietary imbalance:

  • Gradually increase the amount of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains and bran in the diet.
  • Take 1 tablespoon of bran daily, stir in a glass of fruit juice or waters.
  • Or take soluble fiber, such as plantain seeds. Stir 1 tablespoon of seeds in a glass of cold water and drink 1 time a day.
