Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a gastrointestinal tract illness with the symptoms such as severe abdominal pain and alteration of bowel habits. Usually, the food passes through the intestinal tract and the movement of food is due to intestinal muscle contraction. But the IBS hampers natural movements of that muscle thus, food cannot pass through the digestive tract and may result in abdominal pain, mucus in the stool, diarrhoea, bloating and gas, constipation, and cramping. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) 2015, approximately 3 million people in the U.S. were reported being diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
