Research study showed that most people who experience trauma or stress can harm their digestive system which leads to abdominal pain and diarrhea or known as “Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)”.
It has found out that most patients having IBS had most likely experienced psychological trauma such as child or sexual abuse. Researchers also added that what cause IBS are the nerves and muscles of the human body which have been greatly affected due to some dramatic trauma in life.
In association with the nerves of a human body, stress can also over-activate the nerves that connect the human brain and gut, could lead to painful and embarrassing bowel problems.
Saito-Loftus stated that psychological trauma may alert the brain and the gut to become more vulnerable to stress.
Although IBS cannot eventually damage our digestive system, still the danger is substantial, making patients to suffer more on painful bowels which could literally lead to more frequent medication and treatment.
