If you consume foods that are not compatible with your system, you could be racing to the washroom and/or greeted with sharp pains in the stomach. Similarly, stressful thoughts or situations can trigger the intestines to contract harder than normal, resulting in stomachaches, gas, diarrhea, etc.
In continuance to these possible triggers, when the air is damp and moldy, this can result in a runny nose, mind fog, diarrhea, etc. IBS is a condition that can be affected by many sources, however if you can reverse and lessen the degree of your symptoms, this will make all the difference in the world in your gut's sensitivity levels.
