Treating IBS In Miami Just Got Easier

It's quite possible that Miami locals who suffer from IBS are luckier than they may think. In a recent study, scientists have discovered that Vitamin D may be an important element in treating IBS. Scientists from University of Sheffield have found that 82% of IBS patients are vitamin D sufficient.

Study leader Dr Bernard Corfe said: ‘Our work has shown that most IBS suffers in our trial had insufficient levels of vitamin D.

‘There was an association between the Vitamin D status and the sufferer’s perceived quality of life, measured by the extent to which they reported impact on IBS on life.’

There are vitamin D receptors in the esophagus, stomach, and intestines. Vitamin D binds to these receptors and lowers inflammation. It reduces inflammation by reducing tumor-necrosis factor—or TNF.

Dr Corfe said: ‘Our data provide a potential new insight into the condition and importantly a new way to manage it. Some Doctors suggest that people with IBS take vitamin D supplements. However, supplementation isn't nearly as effective as direct sun exposure. If you live in Miami, getting Vitamin D is as easy as taking a 1 hour stroll in the sun or sun bathing for 20 minutes per day. 20 minutes in the sun per day with your arms and legs exposed produces about 10,000 IU of Vitamin D.

(Avoid sunscreen and sunglasses which prevent vitamin D production. Opt for extra virgin coconut oil for natural skin protection. In the summer months don't go out in the sun between 10am-2pm.)

Of course, IBS management cannot be complete without relating to the diet & stress factor of the condition. Many IBS patients can attest to the fact that certain foods (and stressful situations) trigger symptoms. Many foods in the modern diet such as trans fats, modern wheat, certain rice varieties, most dairy products, and sugar are highly inflammatory. Avoiding these foods and instead consuming foods with high nutrient content and anti-inflammatory properties can go a long way to improving and managing IBS.
