Ayurveda recognises IBS as Grahani or Sangrahani. It is a psychosomatic lifestyle disorder marked by classical symptoms like loose motions and constipation etc. Weight loss may or may not occur and is related to the constitution of the patient. 
Although known as a chronic disorder, it is observed in young people; as young as 25 years of age. It is also proven to be reactive to heightened emotions where the mind and body are involved. The trigger of the symptoms can also be severe anxiety, or deep seated fear along with wrong food habits and lifestyle.
IBS largely happens because of nursing emotional turbulence from within and not giving the desired expressions. The body suffers the consequence of these agitated expressions which manifest in the form of acids released into the small intestines.
As a majority of these emotions manifest in the abdominal region; as a psychosomatic expression, a mixture of acids ( Ranjaka pitta ) agitate the tender walls of the intestines and consume the secondary mucosa. The intestines ,therefore ,are susceptible to certain foods which are harsh and incompatible to the person’s current constitution ( vikruti )
What the patient does not understand is a lack of clarity in his mindset. Through active counselling and soothing therapies, a patient’s is able to establish harmony within himself and hence, his immediate environment is restored. 

Through correctly-advised diet and changes in lifestyle, an individual can be weened out of irritable bowels and normal health can be achieved successfully.
A simple home remedy where a fresh juice of mint and coriander leaves mixed with buttermilk and consumed specifically at noon time can help in bringing control in IBS. Successful management of IBS and complete healing can only happen with the patient’s active involvement in his own healing and the successful healing of IBS can only be managed through application of the sound principles and timely intervention as prescribed in ayurvedic texts.
