In brief: No

There is no "cure" but there are plenty of medications which can help control symptoms depending on what kind of ibs you have.

In brief: Control of IBS

Irritable bowel syndrome (ibs) is a constellation of GI symptoms that run the spectrum from diarrhea to constipation (& alternating stool pattern), abdominal pain, bloating, cramps.
Ibs can be worsened by stress, certain food intolerances, concurrent infection. Some patients have sibo (small bowel bacterial overgrowth). Fyi re: drug/diet, i recommend reading "relief from ibs" by elaine shimberg.
