2. IBS Is Caused by Stress

Like food, stress is often blamed for the onset of IBS. However, just like your diet, a high stress level can only exacerbate symptoms, not actually cause the disease.

However, stress and IBS are intimately connected. Naturally, telltale gurgling and cramping will cause some anxiety — especially if you happen to be out in public — but stress and anxiety can become a permanent fixture in your life with IBS. Fortunately, many patients have found that once the source of their IBS is treated, their stress level falls drastically, right away.
