Food for Irritable Bowel Syndrome – What Foods to Eat and Avoid for IBS

Food for irritable bowel syndrome sufferers that is beneficial nutritionally is food that is nutritionally valuable but can also be absorbed properly. Working to a healthy absorption ability might mean you work on both your bodies intestinal chemistry while tailoring your diet to healthy foods. In this article I will go over the reasons for improving IBS symptoms through food diet and body chemistry adjustments while covering the basis of what types of food are good to eat and what types of food may be avoided when dealing with irritable bowel syndrome.

When poor nutrition and food intake is combined with irritable bowel syndrome a very poor lifestyle can result. Ya see, irritable bowel syndrome directly effects your bodies ability to absorb nutrients properly from food. This in turn directly effects a whole range of issues. Once a person is not getting adequate nutrition in their life, their quality of life nose dives. Not only will they feel depressed with super low energy but a whole range of other health issues will occur over time. Poorly treated irritable bowel syndrome can lead to leaky gut problems just to start. Add poor nutritional food like fast food to this persons diet and things have just become that much worse! Now you have given a person with an inability to absorb nutrition fully a food that is extremely low in nutrition to begin with. This is a recipe for a bad lifestyle.

Simply avoiding certain foods is not the full key to IBS recovery however. When people only avoid certain foods as a recovery method and their irritable bowel syndrome improves, it does not mean their irritable bowel syndrome is better. it simply means they haven’t aggravated it. What do I mean by this? I mean that your stomach is imbalanced chemically right now and needs to be chemically corrected through natural means on top of simply eating better. If you eliminate food that aggravates pre-existing imbalance, you may feel less symptoms, but it does not mean you have corrected the root problem. Just as if there’s a fire on the ground and you stop throwing gasoline on it, you’ll notice a lessening of flame bursts, but you should still correct what was burning before you put the gasoline on it.

So, in a moment I’ll go over what foods represent the gasoline your throwing on the flame but first we need to keep in mind that the primary objective is to correct your lofet stomachs chemistry and get it back to normal. This can happen as a result of following proper steps as outlined by a trained holistic doctor or by utilizing an efficient irritable bowel syndrome healing guide which adapts to the individual. A good IBS recovery tool will give you a list of tasks or instructions based on your bodies unique chemistry and will ask you to make the needed adjustments till you chemistry is fully restored. Just for clarification when I say chemistry I am referring mostly to your bodies balance of acid/pH balance, healthy bacteria/ unhealthy bacteria, intestinal linings, parasites, vitamins and allergen interactions. Once these things are aligned, it is up to the individual whether or not they want to keep a healthy food diet.

Natural foods are good for our health and can easily aid us in losing weight and staying healthy. It is full of vitamins, minerals and fiber and contains cancer fighting antioxidants that are contained in natural unprocessed foods. These foods help reduce the risk of suffering from diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer and even help us to reduce weight and stay fit and healthy.

The foods that are processed may be added to what I call the bad foods as they are usually not healthy for us and contain lots of salt, sugars, preservative, saturated and Trans fats. Most nutritionist will tell you that the outer skin of foods in general are more nutrients than even the part that we think we must eat but unfortunately the outer parts of foods is what is thrown away as unfit for food. Take potato for example, the outer skin is more nutritious than the inner food but yet most people will throw out the outer skin and eat the starch within it. Since processed foods do not have fiber in them and are full of additives and food dyes for color they are not healthy for us and in most cases can make one sick.

The human body needs clean environment to stay healthy and eating foods doused with foreign chemicals and ingredients will not help us at all but will make people worse off. But as suggested above, eating healthy natural foods with high natural fiber and nutrients are good for us and can help us to lose weight and remain healthy and thin. It will cause you not to be hungry needlessly but will help shield you from the hunger pangs and cause you to stay slim, healthy and enjoy your life fully. Always remember that it is not about taste or quantity of food that matters but it is the quality of the food and the health it promotes that matters and with no food residues left in our system will also mean that craving for the bad foods will be eliminated or drastically reduced.
