Do some exercise! Start today! This is a motto you often hear. But unless danger knocks on you door you won’t decide to make some time and put physical activity in your life. Very often teachers may suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). This can be explained as their lifestyles are often hectic and stressful and they may be missing or hurrying meals or relying heavily on convenience foods and snacks or takeaways. Stress can be a major contributing factor to IBS. It can trigger an attack or make symptoms worse. Relaxation, regular exercise, and a healthy balanced diet can help improve symptoms whether you are stressed or not.
So NHS Irritable Bowel Syndrome Self Help Guide suggests the following:
Truth is even if you don’t suffer from IBS you must definitely put some physical activity in your life, either vigorous or moderate. If you are 19-64 years old you must definitely have a look at this.
Also, NHS choices has everything you need, like workout programmes of your preference or amazing videos on how to get fit for free in the comfort of your own home.
So you can start today. Visit the local park in your neighbourhood and go for a walk. You ‘ll see how rejuvenated you will feel after that! And then exercise will be part of your life – when you realise how positive it makes you feel.
But what happens when a crisis takes place and you need to use the toilet often? A GP (General Practitioner) suggested Peppermint Oil capsules which are life-saving! You will remember me!! 🙂 Also, you have to check this out – how to heal the gut with essential oils!
