We can begin by eliminating milk and milk products from our diet. Usually, people with IBS are found to be deficient in lactose, the enzyme that digests the sugar present in milk. Undigested lactose in the body gets fermented by the bacteria present in the gut, which causes bloating, pain, and cramps. We can gradually increase the fiber content in our diet. Fiber helps in making the stools bulky and waterlogged, enabling them to pass easily. If diarrhea is the main symptom, we must eat ripe banana, apples, curd, and pureed vegetables. These contain soluble fiber that proves useful, especially to manage diarrhea. For instance, the pectin present in apples and carrots is known to possess stool binding properties. If constipation is the main symptom, we need to increase our intake of insoluble fiber. This is present in whole grains such as oats (jav), bajri, jowar, makai atta, ragi, and wheat bran. We must never rush through our meals. Eat slowly and chew our food thoroughly. Not only does this help in digestion, but it also helps ease any discomfort we might be experiencing in the digestion process. We must eat smaller and more frequent meals rather than have two … Continue reading Managing IBS through diet →
