A series of disorders that occur in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract is commonly known as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Previously this disorder called colitis and later changed to IBS to include broader range of issues in the GI tract. It is not a disease but can cause abdominal pain and discomfort, cramping, diarrhea and constipation. If a person continues to have abdominal pain three times or more a month and continued for three months or more, then the person will be diagnosed as having IBS. Approximately 10 to 15 percent of the population has the condition. Women and people younger than 45 years of age suffer more from IBS. Latest research finds that mental and physical health problems including stress, genetics, changing body chemicals and food sensitivity are causing IBS. Changes in the dietary habits, probiotics, medications, mental health therapy and others can be possible treatments for IBS. A supplement such as Coleanse that contains probiotics and natural ingredients to gently cleanse the colon can provide relief from IBS.
