Mindfulness meditation helps treat stress-related problems and physical pain, including the pain experienced from IBS-related symptoms. The study, conducted by researchers from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Florida State University, followed participants suffering from IBS who practiced mindfulness meditation techniques over a three-month treatment period. At the completion of treatment, participants saw significant improvements in their IBS symptoms, including reduced pain and better quality of life.
