There are many home remedies for IBS. You can often seek relief from IBS through simple changes in your diet habits and lifestyle. But you need to give your body time to respond to these changes. What you can do includes:
  • Avoid triggering foods.
Eliminate foods that trigger your symptoms.
  • Eat at regular times.
Don't skip meals, and try to eat at about the same time each day to help regulate bowel function.
  • Exercise regularly.
Exercise helps relieve depression and stress, stimulates normal contractions of your intestines, and can help you feel better about yourself.
  • Experiment with fiber.
Fiber helps reduce constipation but also can worsen gas and cramping. Try slowly increasing the amount of fiber in your diet over a period of weeks with foods such as whole grains, fruits, vegetables and beans.
  • Learn to control and manage your stress.
