Abstract

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is the most prevalent gastrointestinal disorder, associated with abdominal pain, changes in stool, and abdominal bloating. IBS is currently linked to dietary triggers, visceral hypersensitivity, nervous system dysfunction, and psychosocial factors, however the exact etiology is unclear. Current first line treatment for IBS is focused on symptomatic management with the implementation of lifestyle modifications, which contribute to IBS symptom control and improved quality of life. This review analyzes the efficacy of regular yoga practice (I) compared to a low-FODMAP diet (C) for symptom management (O) in patients diagnosed with IBS (P).
