Fruits, Vegetables and Herbs used for Irritable Bowel

Common symptoms of irritable bowel are bloating, abdominal pain and diarrhea and/or constipation. To eliminate or reduce symptoms try changing to a high fiber diet, less stress and allergy elimination. Many foods and herbs can be used to soothe the intestine, reduce inflammation, aid digestion, calm the nerves promote healing.

My story with IBS...

When I was a child the doctors diagnosed me with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. I was sort of upset because my mom made me eat lots of fiber. I ate lots of oatmeal, fiber rich cereal and raisins. It worked.

As I got older, I realized that I wasn't quite sure that I had IBS, but really, I just ate foods that were devoid of nutrients and fiber...which made it super hard on my body to eliminate properly.

Many people might find that they will have the same success that I did as long as they eat lots of fiber throughout the day, with each meal. And drink lots of water. Make sure everything you eat has fiber. I personally had to get rid of bread from my diet, unless it is fiber rich and dense.

Incorporating juicing when you have IBS soothes the intestines and helps your system to function at its best.

Fruits and vegetables to juice:

Apples, Apricots, Kiwi, Lemon, Papaya, Pineapple, Carrot, Parsley, Spinach, Tomato, Lettuce, Celery, Beets, Cabbage, Broccoli

Herbs:

Chamomile, Cinnamon, Dandelion, Ginger, Fennel, Lemon Balm, Licorice, Peppermint, Slippery Elm Bark Powder

I also like aloe vera gel to soothe my intestines and stomach. Incorporating about 1-2 ounces into your every day diet might really help you, too! I add it to my juice and mix it with a spoon (to make it all one consistency since it is thick). You'll want to try to find juice made from the aloe vera inner leaf.

P.S- one other tip- don't let yourself ever get consitpated.

A good recipe

  • a quarter head of cabbage or romaine lettuce
  • 2 carrots
  • 2 stalks of celery
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 3 sprigs of parsley
  • 2 parsnips
  • 2 sprigs of dill
  • 1 beet
  • 1 apple

Core the apple, remove the beet and carrot tops, and wash the rest of the produce. Juice as usual and drink immediately.  Some people find that cabbage will not work well for them, I meet many people that have no problems with it.
