Another very important cause of irritable bowel syndrome is an imbalance in the brain-gut connection. We know that there is a central nervous system, but there’s also what we call an enteric nervous system, which is a nervous system that’s specific to the digestive tract. If that nervous system of the digestive tract is somehow imbalanced or it doesn’t connect properly with the nervous system of the brain, people can feel a lot of the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome. Oftentimes people with irritable bowel syndrome may have underlying depression or anxiety or a lot of stress and that all plays a very important role in the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.
