Abstract:This article presents information about the irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). IBS is a disorder that affects the entire gastrointestinal tract that produces intense abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhea. Irritable bowel syndrome affects all age groups from infants to seniors. The symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome vary greatly. During times of stress the stomach is one of the first areas of the body to be affected. Individuals who have a history of long-term drug use, antibiotics, antidepressants, tranquilizers or even pain medication can experience upset bowel and cause toxic reactions. Other causes of IBS may be nutrient deficiencies such as B vitamins, magnesium and amino acids.
