Irritable Bowel Syndrome Foods

What are the best irritable bowel syndrome foods is a question routinely asked by irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) patients. But do you want to know which irritable bowel syndrome foods cause your symptoms or which foods are safe to eat?

Each person has a different health history and biochemistry, most people eat differently from one another, so a list of foods for IBS doesn't always offer the common sense answer one may be looking for.

To understand your list of foods for irritable bowel syndrome, we begin by describing the foods to stay away from. Once we understand that, it means that all other foods are safe to eat.

Foods to not eat begins with the elimination of every dairy product except butter. The obvious dairy products are just that: all liquid milks, cheeses, ice cream, sour cream, cottage cheese, cream cheese and yogurt.

Read the ingredient list of all labels on the packaged food in your home looking for the words milk, cheese, lactose, whey and casein. Do not ignore this advice as you may be surprised where they hide dairy products.

IBS foods that can cause gas are beans and legumes. They can also cause stomach aches, burping, nausea, heartburn or GERD. Avoid them to see what benefit occurs.

Many people find that foods for irritable bowel syndrome that can cause problems can be gluten containing foods. Remove all wheat, oats, barley and rye from your diet.

More and more people with IBS recently have found that fructose containing foods are also to be avoided. Fructose can make all fruit unsafe to eat as well as any type of sugar, honey, maple syrup, molasses and agave. Lose your sweet tooth if your try to eliminate fructose.

This list also includes corn, beets, carrots, peas, tomatoes, onions, eggplant, sweet potatoes, turnips and winter squash.

There are other foods for irritable bowel syndrome to NOT eat because some people may find them to cause symptoms. Nuts and seeds may create many little pieces with sharp edges that can irritate the bowels. Nut butters are much safer to eat.

Surprisingly, lettuce or spinach can be on your avoidance list as they can cause loose bowels and/or drop a person to their knees in pain. Raw vegetables may do the same as they are more difficult to digest than steamed or sauteed vegetables.

By understanding the foods for irritable bowel syndrome to not eat, this means that almost all other foods might be safe to eat. Any or all of the above advice might reduce your symptoms of IBS. But, usually irritable bowel syndrome is not just a problem with your diet. It's a problem with diet as a result of a diminished bacterial (probiotic) presence and imbalanced chemistry of the tissue that lines the bowels.

A comprehensive natural treatment plan designed to re-establish the beneficial bacterial balance, identify any organisms that should not be present in your bowels, improvements in chemistry of the gut with nutritional supplements and the use of digestive enzymes.
