Dr Oz: Irritable Bowel Syndrome
How do you know when your stomach symptoms could be a sign of a more serious chronic illness? Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) might be more common than you realize, but your stomach problems could be related to other causes. Check out Dr Oz’s Turmeric IBS Remedy.
Dr Oz: IBS Vs Stomach Bug
Ivy teamed up with Dr Oz to learn more about IBS, and coincidentally her initials are IBS. She attributes her stomach problems to her diet or her monthly cycle. The first steps are to pinpoint some causes. But Dr Oz explained that there are two fundamental differences between IBS and a stomach bug.
The trigger is the first difference. A Stomach Bug would be caused by exposure to a virus, whereas IBS can be triggered by food, emotions, or hormonal changes.
Dr Oz said that the second indicator is the length of the symptoms. Ivy said her discomfort can last a few days. Dr Oz said that a Stomach Bug can linger, but IBS can come and go at almost any time.
Dr Oz: What Triggers IBS?
IBS is triggered by tension or anxiety that can flare up in your life at any time. Whether it’s a visit from the mother-in-law or stress at work, the symptoms can last for minutes, hours, or days.
You could also set it off when you eat rich, fatty foods. Irritable Bowel Syndrome sounds like a major inconvenience, but Dr Oz shared some potential solutions.
Dr Oz: Turmeric IBS Remedy
Dr Oz recommended Turmeric as an addition to foods to reduce inflammation, and it is also available in supplement form. It should soothe the digestive system, and he advised taking a dosage of 60 mg Turmeric Supplement, three times per day, before your meals.
Some studies have shown that Turmeric can reduce IBS symptoms by 50%. You can also rub it on protein or sprinkle it into veggies to add nutrition to your meals. Let me know if you have experience with this.
