Irritable Bowel Syndrome, commonly known as IBS, is an increasingly common bowel disorder that affects up to 20% of the UK population. The symptoms can be wide-ranging and different across individuals. They include abdominal pain, reflux, bloating, constipation, and diarrhoea. In addition, people with IBS often suffer with mood disorders such as anxiety and depression.

The individual and multifactorial nature of IBS means that a personalised approach that looks at the underlying causes of symptoms is often required to improve gut health. Everyone’s IBS is different and what flares one person’s symptoms will be vastly different to the next. We want to help you to understand what’s driving your symptoms and how you can find relief.

To do this, we’ve broken digestive health into four key areas: digestion, balance of bacteria, integrity and motility. Developing an awareness and understanding of where your gut symptoms fit into these four areas is a great starting place in understanding what might be triggering your IBS. Read over the below and make a note of any statements that apply to you.
