Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common digestive disorder with related symptoms of constipation, diarrhoea, bloating, gas and cramps.
There isn’t a cure for IBS, but it can be controlled by managing diet and stress, which are the most common triggers.
Direct heat on the abdomen is a great way to relax the colon. The heat provides quick relief from IBS symptoms and is also great for relaxation, which will help prevent stress related IBS attacks.
If you have a stressful event coming up, a good, preventative measure is to apply heat therapy to your abdomen in order to prevent IBS symptoms from arising.
Hotties are great for relief from IBS symptoms because they are gentle on skin yet stay warm for a very long period of time. Simply heat up a Hottie then place it over your abdomen where you most feel the pain of your symptoms.
