Stress, inflammation and IBS

1 Comment

Most patients report that anxiety and stress aggravate their IBS symptoms. Chronic stress can activate low grade inflammation in the gut thereby inducing symptoms experienced by IBS sufferers. Anti-inflammatory drugs have long been used to treat the inflammatory digestive conditions of Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. Research is ongoing into the benefits of anti-inflammatory treatment for IBS however some results so far are positive.
