I have recently been getting constant gassy stomach, bloating, constipation, and ab pains from consuming one of my brother’s vegetable smoothies.
I later found out that this was called irritable bowl syndrome which described all the problems I’ve been getting.
The pain was like being punch in the gut nonstop even when I was asleep.
What helped the most through this problem was kratom.
It got me through the roughest part of IBS which was the constant pains in the stomach and made me feel like the pain wasn’t there at all.
In this article I will show you how I used kratom to help with this problem and a little extra things I did to cure it.
Here is a glimpse of what I did to cure my IBS:
- not laying on my back
- foam roll
- changed my diet
- drink warm water
- stayed away from sugar
- had probiotics
How I Took Kratom For IBS
When I wake up I take my normal dosage of kratom which is 3 grams. In about 15 minutes, the stomach and ab pains will disappear for half the day.
I will take a another dosage for the other half of the day which would be 2.5 grams. Then I would take one last dosage at 2 grams to go to sleep.
Because of this problems I haven’t been rotating the strains properly but I still am trying to take different strains a day. I have notice that my tolerance has shot up but the pain always disappears regardless.
My Rotation looks like this
For Friday through Saturday I start combining the strains and although my tolerance shoots way up, the kratom will still make the stomach pains go away. I just don’t feel any other effects such as improved mood, calmness, focuc, etc…
What Is IBS?
For those that don’t know, IBS is a disorder that affects the large intestine.
It can cause a variety of different problems such as gassiness, bloating, constipation, pain in the abdomen, diarrhea and constipation.
This syndrome can be caused by different things such as stress, diet and allergic reaction to a certain food.
IBS has made laying on my back unbearable and impossible to get any quality sleep at night. I would build too much gas up if I was laying on my back which wouldn’t be released so I had to lay on my stomach. I would also have to wake up every hour in the middle of the night to use the restroom, but nothing would come out.
What has been helping me a lot with my stomach pains from IBS is taking kratom. Specifically the slow and medium strains which I take three times a day. I have been taking steps to recovery and kratom makes it feel like this syndrome doesn’t even exist, well, until the effects disappear and then i’ll realize that it’s still there.
I can confidently say that the problems that I had is now halved from what it was a week ago.
Here is what I’ve been doing to recover
I Try Not To Lay On My Back
I make sure that I am sitting in an upright posture so the gases can be released and not linger and build up around in my stomach.
If I can then I will be standing up and strolling around and this also helps with food digestion and releasing gas from the stomach.
I Foam Roll
After taking kratom in the morning, I will usually foam roll my lower back and then my abs. Ever since IBS occurred, I have been aching from the lower back so I use a foam roller and it solves the issue.
I would then foam roll my abs and this helps moves the gases that are stuck in my stomach to go down.
I haven’t been foam rolling anymore because my IBS isn’t too bad anymore and my pains have lowered a lot.
If you don’t have a foam roller then find a cylinder that is thick enough for you to roll your back on (preferably 6×12 or 5×10 will still do).
I Eat Foods That Can Easily Be Digested
I stop eating raw vegetables and started boiling them before I eat. I pretty much just threw everything I want to eat into a crockpot and cook it on slow for 8 – 10 hours.
This makes the vegetables, chicken, beef, and everything tender and soft.
If I feel like cheating on my diet, then I would cheat on ramen noodles.
The noodles are soft and easily digestible.
The only problem with this is that it makes me really gassy, which is counter productive.
Stay Away From Simple Carbs And Simple Sugars
I would recommend that you stay away from simple sugars and simple carbs if you want to be serious with recovery.
These will cause gassiness and stomach pains if you consume too much.
An example of simple carbs is, white potatoes, white rice, white bread, ramen noodles.
An example of simple sugar is candy, doughnuts, cake.
If you want carbs then you can try sweet potato.
One fist size sweet potato will fill me up for 3 to 4 hours (this does’t sound right…).
I Only Drink Warm Water
Drinking warm water really helps relieve my stomach pains.
This is the only thing I drink now because it’s not only healthy, but also feels good when you drink it.
When I drink the warm water, it makes my soothes my stomach pains and I feel like all the gas builded up is moving down.
You should be drinking a lot of warm water because it will help make the recovery process a lot faster.
I drink warm water in the morning, during breakfast, brunch, lunch, linner, dinner, and before I go to sleep.
This is the only thing you should be drinking. You should stay away from any cold beverage.
I Take Probiotics And Eat Yogurt
I take probiotics every day and eat yogurt everyday.
This will help you’re stomach digest food easily so you feel normal again.
These don’t help immediately, but in the long term will keep your digestive system functioning properly and healthy.
I got my probiotics from a probiotic drink in the dairy aisle and same for the yogurt.
They taste great so you should have no problem consuming them.
One thing that I do before I consuming these two is that I leave them out of the fridge and let them warm up to room temperature before I consume them.
The only reason I do this is because it easier on my stomach.
I cannot emphasize enough on how much kratom has helped me through this problem.
My stomach was in excruciating pain and the only way I can describe it would be like holding in your poop for 2 weeks straight.
With Kratom the pain completely went away until the effects wore off.
As for the extra things that I did to help cure IBS, the main thing that I recommend is to change up you’re eating habits and diet if nothing else.
Eating healthy and easily digestive food will give your digestive system less work so this will give it an easier and faster time to heal up.
