IBS is a major women’s health issue. Data reveals an increased risk of unnecessary surgery for extra-abdominal and abdominal surgery in IBS patients. For example, hysterectomy or ovarian surgery has been reported in female patients with IBS as high as 47% to 55% and has been performed more often in the IBS patients than in comparison groups. Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is the most common functional uncontrolled stress gastrointestinal (GI) disorder with worldwide prevalence rates ranging from 9–23% and U.S rates generally in the area of 10–15%. Functional disorders are conditions where there is an absence of structural or biochemical abnormalities on common diagnostic tests, which could explain symptoms. Not all individuals with IBS symptoms seek medical care for their symptoms. Nevertheless, there are between 2.4 and 3.5 million annual physician visits for IBS in the United States alone.
You can start the process of healing that gut by giving what it needs. And your gut needs probiotics. Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that have been found to ease symptoms of diarrhea, constipation, gas, bloating, and other common digestive ailments, as well as support proper immune function. Without a doubt a common denominator of women dealing with IBS is stress. If your stress is causing problems in your gut, don’t only see a doctor, go grocery shopping. Women are on the go working full time, being the primary caregiver to elderly parents and serving as the family taxi.
