your nervous system to help ease IBS symptoms. Some patients also find relief with hypnotherapy.
Like meditation, hypnotherapy promotes deep relaxation to reduce abdominal bloating and pain. The scientific jury is still out on the effectiveness
of acupuncture, but some IBS patients find it helps improve bowel function and reduce muscle spasms.
Biofeedback is a mind-body technique that helps manage pain. And some IBS patients say it helps improve bowel control.
Probiotics are friendly bacteria that nourish a healthy gut to help ease IBS pain, bloating, and flatulence.
You can get probiotics in a lot of different foods, including dairy products, like yogurt, cheese, and fermented foods, like miso and tempeh.
You can also take a probiotic dietary supplement. I'm Dr. Miller. Watch all our smart tips for more ways to nourish a happy tummy.
