Learn How Increased Levels of Serotonin Can Relieve IBS Symptoms
Serotonin (also referred to as 5-hydroxytryptamine) is an important hormone and neurotransmitter.
It is critical for communicating information throughout the body as well as throughout the bowels and digestive system.. In psychiatry, 5-hydroxytryptamine levels are manipulated with drugs in conditions such as depression and anxiety (common in IBS).
But many studies show that it is critical for digestive health. Low levels of serotonin are being implicated in irritable bowel syndrome. In this article the researchers note that nearly 90% of the body’s serotonin is made in the digestive tract. Researchers looked at bacteria production of serotonin and concluded that the microbiome is an important stimulant of it’s production. Probiotics, foods, and prebiotics that support 5-hydroxytryptamine production are key treatment for irritable bowel syndrome.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome, commonly referred to as IBS and IBD can produce severe abdominal pain, bloating, diarrhea and constipation for a reported 15-20% of the population. Most people are unaware of their condition and suffer from painful and inconvenient symptoms.
If these terrible symptoms disrupt your daily lifestyle, then you’re probably ready to stop planning your entire day around how close you are at any given moment to a bathroom. These spasms are caused by spontaneous or involuntary muscle contractions within the colon. It is a condition often associated and caused by IBS or irritable bowel syndrome.
For years, doctors called this disorder spastic colon with good reason. An out-of-control gastrointestinal system and colon can really wreak havoc with your life. But if you’re reading this post now, you’re more than likely tired of asking why does my stomach hurt and are ready to move on to a solution to frequent stomach pains, cramps and loose bowels.
What Causes Colon Spasms
In many cases, colon and stomach spasms are triggered by simple stress and/or eating high-fat meals. Conditions such as Crohn’s disease, constipation and ulcerative colitis may also create colon spasms; however, irritable bowel disorders are frequently the most cited cause of these symptoms.
Help for Colon and Intestinal Issues
For many sufferers of bowel disorders, modifications to diet and lifestyle can be particularly helpful. Avoiding dairy and/or caffeine while adding fresh foods and veggies are excellent first steps to preventing symptoms from happening in the first place. Each person is different so for most, there is no one set diet that will work for all. Instead, each sufferer must use trial and error with the foods they choose in order to determine which ones trigger issues. A daily food journal will help you to document what you eat on a daily basis so that you can pinpoint what might be causing symptoms.
To relieve stress, many people have good results with relaxation methods such as yoga, meditation and exercise.
When the Pain is Too Much
Inflammatory bowel diseases such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s cause extreme pain that can even become life-threatening if not treated. With these diseases, medical attention and prescription medication may be necessary in addition to diet changes.
Irritable bowel syndrome treatments include diet and exercise changes. Homeopathic dietary supplements such as those in our Reverse IBS 30 day program can help you get the relief you need from colon spasms, abdominal pain and loose bowel movements associated with the disorder.
