Fiber, water,...: Ibs typically improves with plenty of fiber, water, an stress reduction. However, there are good medicines (levsin (hyoscyamine) is commonly used) which can be very helpful with symptoms of ibs.

Not enough fiber: try to search foods with fiber- you need 30 gm fiber per day. It makes your stool bulkier, and makes it easier to come out.
