Is it love or fear?: Irritable bowel is neither life-threating nor contagious.

IBS: That's a very difficulty question to answer since different people react differently to various foods. Common sense would be - avoid overeating, foods that are known to take time to digest - high fat, fried foods. Caffeine is a known irritant, so avoid that. Some may not like diary due to worsening diarrhea. If you're on the loose side, fiber rich foods can make you worse. Try and find what works! ...Read more

Stress reduction.: Since the cause for ibs is unknown (some studies showed that people with ibs has lower pain threshold in the bowel) but stress is considered an important factor, stress reduction (meditation?) would be the first step. A high fiber diet and regular exercise may also help. There are medications to reduce the symptoms but you will need a doctor since response to drugs vary from person to person. ...Read more
