Helpful Habits and Activities

Its not just diet that can affect the severity of IBS. The review conducted by Dugdale and Longstreth also suggested certain activities and habits that can help relieve bowel symptoms.

They recommend regular exercises and complete sleep (8 hours) for alleviating some of the most painful symptoms. Any excuse for a good nights sleep should be taken straight away!

Also, the regulars smoking and alcohol should be avoided.

The review showed that stress was a big influence on IBS symptoms too, so if you can then try to keep stress-related activities to a minimum. It’s also a great excuse to head to the spa or salon- Thanks Docs.
