Tummy Troubles? Heres What It Could Be!
Two relatively common intestinal conditions are irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO).
IBS isn’t a disease per se, because it doesn’t have a defined etiology and diagnosis is based on a cluster of symptoms. You can have diarrhea, constipation, or both, 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘺𝘰𝘶’𝘭𝘭 𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘤𝘵 𝘱𝘰𝘰𝘳𝘭𝘺 𝘵𝘰 𝘥𝘪𝘧𝘧𝘦𝘳𝘦𝘯𝘵 𝘧𝘰𝘰𝘥𝘴 𝘥𝘦𝘱𝘦𝘯𝘥𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘰𝘯 𝘺𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘱𝘦𝘳𝘴𝘰𝘯𝘢𝘭 𝘴𝘪𝘵𝘶𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯. It’s hard to give blanket recommendations here because it is a condition that requires self-experimentation to determine what foods work best with your digestive system.
The cluster of symptoms is some combination of bloating, gas, pain, and distention.
BUT slow down and don’t diagnose yourself just yet; 𝘦𝘹𝘱𝘦𝘳𝘪𝘦𝘯𝘤𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘴𝘦 𝘴𝘺𝘮𝘱𝘵𝘰𝘮𝘴 𝘧𝘳𝘰𝘮 𝘵𝘪𝘮𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘵𝘪𝘮𝘦 𝘥𝘰𝘦𝘴𝘯’𝘵 𝘪𝘯𝘥𝘪𝘤𝘢𝘵𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘥𝘦𝘧𝘪𝘯𝘪𝘵𝘦𝘭𝘺 𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘦 𝘐𝘉𝘚. If you have gas or bloat after eating certain foods, that is normal even if you have been conditioned to believe otherwise. Listen up ladies, if you want a flat stomach, then own that and avoid the foods you need to, but don’t hide behind a veil of IBS.
Another issue that some experience is SIBO (𝘴𝘮𝘢𝘭𝘭 𝘪𝘯𝘵𝘦𝘴𝘵𝘪𝘯𝘢𝘭 𝘣𝘢𝘤𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘪𝘢𝘭 𝘰𝘷𝘦𝘳𝘨𝘳𝘰𝘸𝘵𝘩). SIBO involves bacterial fermentations of sugars in the small intestine before they can be absorbed, causing gas, bloating, and discomfort. It usually requires paying attention to sugar intake to help reduce bacterial growth and fermentation, along with antibiotics/herbs to eliminate the bacteria entirely.
