Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common digestive problem affecting more women than men, and people younger than 45 years old. The exact cause of this condition is not known. But what experts know is that this problem affects the large intestine, causing bloating, changes in bowel habits and abdominal cramping. It can also either cause diarrhea or constipation. Fortunately, although this can cause great discomfort, it does not cause damage to the intestines.
IBS can be treated with medicines. But you can also go for the natural route, and use herbs to relieve the symptoms. Here are some herbs that can help you if you have IBS.
