Senocalm - IBS Relief From Gas Related Symptoms - Top Stress Busting Tips.

Senocalm understands how embarrassing, unpleasant and often debilitating symptoms such as painful cramps, bloating, constipation and/or diarrhoea can be. It can have a detrimental effect on people’s lives impacting everyday activities such as socialising, travelling and even work. These symptoms may arise because the digestive system and mind are linked. Emotions, such as stress and anxiety, can therefore affect our gut health, potentially triggering a flare up.

What Is IBS?

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) can affect up to one in five Brits at some stage of their life, and twice as many women as men. It’s not always easy to diagnose and it can be difficult to pinpoint the triggers which commonly include stress, anxiety and certain foods and drinks.

  • IBS is a common, long-term condition of the digestive system. It can cause bouts of stomach cramps, bloating, diarrhoea and/or constipation.
  • The symptoms vary between individuals and affect some people more severely than others.
  • Symptoms tend to come and go in periods lasting a few days to a few months at a time.
  • IBS symptoms can be triggered by certain foods (e.g. fatty and processed foods) and drinks (e.g. alcohol, caffeine and fizzy drinks) as well as stress and anxiety.
  • The symptoms of IBS can also have a significant impact on a person's day-to-day life and can have a deep psychological impact. As a result, many people with the condition have feelings of depression and anxiety.

To launch Senocalm, IBS Relief from Gas Related Symptoms, the brand has teamed up with meditation and mindfulness expert, Emma Mills to give you coping mechanisms to help alleviate stress whilst at home, work, or on-the-go and in turn, assist in minimising the risk of digestive flare-ups.
Emma Mills says: “Stress can be detrimental to your mental and physical wellbeing and for many IBS sufferers it can be a key trigger of their symptoms. Taking time out for a few minutes a day for meditation and mindfulness helps ease the emotional tension that hinders our everyday routines and can help to re-balance the digestive system.”

Emma Mills’ Top Stress Busting ‘Gutfulness’ Tips.

Top Stress Busting Tips from meditation and mindfulness expert Emma Mills to help prevent IBS stopping you in your tracks.
  1. Create a mindfulness toolkit: Have items with you that you know will help you feel good and relaxed while on-the-go, such as a favourite book, essential oils or herbal teas. 
  2. Belly Breathing: When daily pressures begin to pile up, take five minutes to focus on your breathing. Lying down, place both hands on your tummy, covering your belly button. When you breathe in, imagine there is a little balloon inside your tummy. As it expands, lift your hands as you breathe in, lower as you breathe out.
  3. Visualisation: Picture your digestive tract as a long, calm river that flows gently, passing through the throat and into the tummy. Feel the ‘river’ gently cooling the soft walls of your tummy and system, cleansing, healing and helping your body to feel full of energy and life.
  4. Humming: Sit comfortably and on your next out breath, close your mouth and make a little humming sound. This can be very relaxing on the digestive system and restore a sense of harmony. Don’t over breathe, as the aim is nice, gentle easy relaxation.
  5. Focus in: Take three minutes to focus on a flower. Put all your attention on this; its petals, fragrance, shape etc. Notice how it feels to be engaged and ask yourself what starts to feel different.
  6. Tapping: Gently tap using your knuckles around the rib cage, across the back of the ribs and around the hips, use 20 percent of your effort while you say, ‘I can trust my body, I can feel relaxed’.
  7. Sound the AUM (om): First breathe in gently and on your next out breath, let out a little AUM sound. Do this three to four times a day.
  8. Play with opposites in self talk: In your mind play with the opposites to reduce negative thoughts which can have an impact on your stress levels and could trigger your IBS. For example: ‘I feel anxious vs. what if I don't have to feel anxious’, ‘I’m stressed vs. I’m at peace’, ‘I’m all uptight vs. but I can be relaxed’.
