What causes Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and colitis?
The most notable culprit is our modern diet with excessively processed and sugar loaded foods. A lack of fresh food in your diet will result in a lack of natural dietary fiber and enzymes so important to healthy bowel function. Yeast diseases like Candida albicans and parasites are a major problem for Americans today as a result of poor diet‚ and can aggravate IBS symptoms. Dutch tests show up to 20 percent of IBS sufferers have a lactose sensitivity. Other research shows 78 percent of IBS patients have overgrowth of abnormal bacteria in the small intestine that becomes aggravated by too many antibiotics. This imbalance reduces immune response. People who take over-the-counter pain relievers are more affected because too many non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs damage the gut lining. Additionally‚ heavy smokers and coffee drinkers are at higher risk for IBS‚ as are tense and anxious people under long emotional stress or depression. A small number of cases are genetically prone.
