A Complete Guide to IBS - gut health, stress, inflammation


Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) can be overwhelming, impacting every aspect of
life, including a person’s physical, mental, emotional, and energetic well-being. Here are effective strategies to help those dealing with IBS find relief and support.

Key areas affecting those with IBS:
 the gut
 the vagus nerve/gut-brain axis
 chronic inflammation
 stress

The Gut: This refers to the gastrointestinal tract, where IBS primarily manifests. Factors such as gut health- pain, discomfort, digestion, absorption; gut microbiota composition-overgrowth/imbalance, infections; and gut motility are central to understanding and managing IBS.

The Vagus Nerve: The vagus nerve plays a crucial role in regulating digestion and influencing gut-brain communication. Vagal toning and parasympathetic activation can impact digestion and repair processes, which are relevant in the context of IBS management.

Chronic Inflammation: Inflammation within the gut can exacerbate IBS symptoms. Strategies targeting inflammation, such as consuming anti-inflammatory nutrients, following a gut healing protocol, and supporting circadian rhythm, can help alleviate symptoms associated with IBS.

Stress: Psychological factors, including stress, can significantly impact IBS symptoms by influencing gut motility, visceral sensitivity, and immune function. Managing stress through techniques that regulate cortisol levels and support circadian rhythm can be beneficial for individuals with IBS.
