The irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is the gastrointestinal condition most common in the world, affecting approximately 13-20% of the population. FODMAPs are fermentable carbohydrates that are partially responsible for the symptoms in people suffering from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The low-FODMAP diet is an effective method to reduce symptoms and identify problematic FODMAPs.
Stress can be a trigger or worsen symptoms of IBS, therefore it is recommended to practice relaxing activities such as yoga, breathing techniques or meditation and also make regular physical activities. Concerning your food choices, keep a steady meal schedule and avoid large servings. Avoid habits that could promote aerophagia (meaning increasing the amount of air that goes into the digestive tract), like chewing gum and drinking sparkling water or soft drinks.
