How can I prevent IBS?

One of the mainstays of preventing IBS is preventing gastroenteritis (inflammation of the stomach and intestines and the tissue that lines them).

This means that to prevent IBS, good hand hygiene, healthy diet, physical activity, and management of underlying psychiatric conditions and stress is very important.
