5Abstract

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) (is a common disorder that affects the large intestine. Signs and symptoms include cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, and diarrhea or constipation, or both. IBS is a chronic condition that you'll need to manage long term)is a common GI functional disorder, which presents with a wide range of symptoms such as chronic abdominal discomfort, bloating (is any abnormal gas swelling, or increase in diameter of the abdominal area. As a symptom, the patient feels a full and tight abdomen, which may cause abdominal pain and is sometimes accompanied by increased stomach growling, or more seriously, the total lack of it.)and altered bowel habits. The variety of symptoms has led to a difficult therapeutic challenge and no specific treatment for relieving all IBS symptoms has been suggested yet. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of Chamomile extract on IBS symptoms. In a randomized trial, 45 patients who fulfilled the ROOM III criteria (The Rome III criteria are commonly used in research studies, but not used in clinical practice.1 It was first developed based on a meeting held in Rome to standardize a guideline for the diagnosis of IBS. The Rome III criteria is based on pain symptoms and considers pain to be the primary symptom of IBS)and had no organic disease enrolled in this study and were asked to take Chamomile 20 drops daily for four weeks. They were asked to fill in IBS-associated symptoms questionnaire to specify abdominal pain intensity, bloating, nausea, stool consistency and altered bowel habits. The questionnaire was filled out during 5visits: at the first day, at the second and fourth weeks after starting the treatment and also the second and fourth weeks after the end of intervention.IBS symptoms were significantly reduced at the second and fourth weeks after beginning of the herbal therapy (p<0.001). Symptom relief continued up to 2 weeks after the end of intervention and started to decrease in 4 weeks after beginning of the herbal therapy. Considering the improving effects of Chamomile (Chamomile or camomile is the common name for several daisy-like plants of the family Asteraceae. Two of the species are commonly used to make herb infusions thought to serve various medicinal purpose)on all IBS symptoms, it may have a positive effect on the syndrome pathogenesis as well.
