Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Stress

Irritable Bowel Syndrome - or Spastic Colon as it used to be called - is a functional disorder of the intestines characterized by cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, constipation, and diarrhea. In today’s fast paced life, approximately 10% to 20% of the population is affected by IBS. Studies have found that it occurs more often in women than in men.

Stress appears to be one of the main aggravating factors in Irritable Bowel Syndrome / Spastic Colon attacks, although it is not the basic cause. It can exacerbate symptoms as the body responds to internal and external changes. The stress response system in the body is a complex system which involves the brain, the nervous system and the endocrine system - a system of glands which secrete a type of hormone.

It stimulates blood pressure, heart rate, muscle tension and affects the bowel function in the body. Due to the effect of stress on the bowel function, it is considered to be a serious contributing factor to Irritable Bowel Syndrome symptoms.

How does my body react to stress?

Stress, depression and anxiety can all exacerbate IBS symptoms.
The stress that your body experiences stimulate the following reactions, some of which can aggravate Irritable Bowel Syndrome symptoms considerably:

  • Increase in heart rate
  • Increased respiration
  • Increased muscle tension
  • Inhibition of the immune system
  • Delay in stomach emptying
  • Increase in the speed of colonic contractions
  • Relaxation of bladder muscles

It is possible to control the symptoms of with diet, stress management, prescribed medications or natural herbal remedies. In trying to find an effective treatment, the various substances that are released during the stress response process have been studied. The studies revealed that corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) is one factor which plays a large role in stress response.

CRH is present in both the brain and gut. In the brain it is present in those areas which are related to digestion, emotions and the autonomic nervous system. In the gut CRH acts within the colon to increase mucous and water secretion and affects mobility, which can cause abdominal pain. With a better understanding of the role of CRH, it is hoped that it will be possible to develop more effective medications for Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Working closely with your physician and changing your lifestyle may help you in reducing stress and IBS / Spastic Colon symptoms. It is very important to lead a low-stress life, though this is not an easy target to achieve in the 21st Century.
