IBS Triggers

Fibro Daily June 13, 2013

Seems like Fibromyalgia and Irritable Bowel Syndrome have joined in some kind of evil conspiracy to wreck havoc on the body.

Well, we’ll show them! You have to fight bowels problems with fire is what my grandmother always said. Wait…no, that’s what Fibro fog made me say. In fact, stay clear of fire altogether in this case. Trust me. Let me see, what did she say? Oh, dear…

Well, I do know what Joy Bauer says about the following: they act as IBS triggers:

  • Dairy
  • Insoluble Fiber
  • Raw and Cruciferous Veggies
  • Wheat(Gluten)
  • Sweeteners
  • Beans and Lentils
  • Garlic and Onions
  • Carbonated, Caffeinated, and Alcoholic Beverages
  • Fatty Foods and Red Meat
  • Chocolate
  • Condiments

Ok… what’s left to eat then?!?

You have to remember that not everything on the above list is going to trigger an attack in you. More than likely, you will be able to eat some of the above items, so don’t panic that you have nothing good and/or healthy left to eat! As Ms. Bauer recommends, keep a food diary to see what triggers your attacks, then plan accordingly.
