Find IBS Attack Relief quicklyFind Out The Best Quick Relief For IBS

You’re here because you want QUICK relief for IBS symptoms, am I right? Of course I am, IBS really sucks sometimes.

I’ve experienced many IBS attacks over the last nine years, some significant enough to send me to the ER.

This information was tough to come by in my first few years of having Irritable Bowel Syndrome, which is why this post means a lot to me.

I get to share this information that took me a long time to find all in one place for the world to see!

It’s amazing, the info we can find just one google search away.

Cramping and pains from Irritable Bowel Syndrome are difficult to describe, but there’s no mistaking them, they’re distinct (in an off the charts-pain kind of way).

The picture to the left here was taken almost a year ago while I was sitting in bed with an IBS flare up, trying to drink it all away with chamomile tea.


IBS Attacks In A Nutshell

IBS attacks often come on suddenly due to consuming trigger foods/beverages, being under stress or both.

Avoiding trigger foods is one of the best ways to prevent any future IBS attacks.

It’s also important to de-stress, as it can have a very negative effect on the body (especially if you have Irritable Bowel Syndrome).

But with all of the information out there, sometimes we just end up with a crappy IBS flare up anyway, pun intended for your entertainment.

Attacks can last from hours to days and possibly weeks if not handled carefully.

During an attack you have to take special care with what you eat or drink and what you do physically.

Usually during an attack you will experience either constipation, diarrhea or you could have periods of both.  This causes major abdominal cramping, bloating, loss of appetite, weight loss, dehydration and major exhaustion.

I can tell you from experience, it’s incredibly easy to become dehydrated with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, so don’t skip out on the water and electrolytes.


Why IBS Attack Relief Is Hard To Find

Great quick relief for IBS attacks and other pesky symptoms.The truth is, our world still doesn’t know much about Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

However, I can say that we’ve come a long way, especially in the past nine years that I’ve had IBS.

I’ve noticed new medications, supplements and new research have hit the internet and doctors’ offices.

Over the years, I’ve found what works best for me through trial and error.

But seriously, who has time for trial and error?  That’s why I’m sharing what I’ve found to help with my IBS symptoms the quickest.


The Power Of Peppermint For IBS!

Peppermint provides quick relief for IBS symptoms.  It can help quickly relieve IBS cramps or stomach upset.

Both products below are small and compact enough to put in a purse or brief case, you can take them everywhere including vacations and the workplace!

You never know when an IBS attack will strike!

Heather’s Tummy Care is an amazing company, dedicated to making products specifically for people with IBS.

I first discovered Heather’s Tummy Care back in 2010 and I’ve been very blessed with their products.

Heather’s Peppermint Oil comes in capsules and one can be swallowed with water for quick relief.  This is especially great for relieving abdominal cramps.

If you don’t like swallowing pills (my child-self HATED them!), I recommend Tummy Drops peppermint drops, you suck on them like a cough drop, but they help relieve GI related issues like IBS symptoms!

Seriously, these things are so cool to me!  They’re so simple, yet I would’ve never thought to invent these.

The Best Gas Relief

Irritable Bowel Syndrome contributes to major bloating and gas (All aboard the trapped air train!!).

Our bodies have to work much harder to digest foods because of this disorder.

Let’s get right down to the quick relief for IBS gas!

Phazyme is always my quick fix for heartburn, bloating and trapped gas.

  1. When I was in my 20’s I was diagnosed IBS that then developed in Ulcerative Colitis and I wish I had these things back then. The only thing I had was prescription meds that didn’t work and had side effects. This was pre internet days.
    Fortunately my issues healed by itself over time but I still get flareups if I eat too much of the trigger foods or am under a lot of stress. I’m bookmarking this article for those times.

  2. Hi Sarah,love reading your posts for help for IBS for my daughter.Could I ask if you find white flours affect you also.Ellie my daughter is having a bad time now as we went on holidays and of course she ate everything she should not have and paid dearly on the toilet which has left her totally exhausted.

    • Hi Michelle,

      If white flours are still an issue, I recommend a gluten free flour, something easier to digest. I also recommend checking out the low FODMAP diet if Ellie is still struggling.

  3. in my early teens,i experienced irritable bowel syndrome already and my mom thought it was only premenstrual cramps . it went on until i had my first born. i’ve already tried different teas, sometimes i get relief but most of the time it’s not that effective. thank you for sharing these helpful tips!.

  4. This sounds like a nasty thing to be burdened with. Once in a while I have trouble with keeping things down, and I don’t know why. I love how you point out here that you can use tea and ginger. Sometimes natural remedies are the best.

    • Victoria, have you thought about starting a food journal to figure out those trigger foods? I highly recommend it, and in the meantime, herbs like Ginger and Fennel can help when you’re not feeling well.
