Quelles sont les causes du SII?

Bien que la cause exacte du SII ne soit pas connus, certains facteurs peuvent affecter l’évolution de la fonction intestinale :

  • Motilité intestinale anormale: la façon dont les muscles se contractent le long de l’intestin 
  • Hypersensibilité intestinale: les nerfs dans les intestins semblent éprouver une plus grande sensibilité à la douleur
  • Déséquilibre de la flore intestinale: Équilibre de bonnes et mauvaises bactéries dans l’intestin est altéré

Quels sont les symptômes du SII ?

  • Les douleurs abdominales ou crampes
  • Ballonnements
  • Flatulences
  • Mucus dans les selles
  • Selles irrégulières  (constipation, diarrhée ou en alternance) 

Comment puis-je traiter mon SII? 

Comme il n’y a pas de remède pour le SII , le traitement repose sur la gestion de vos symptômes, qui sont aggravés par certains facteurs: infection, inflammation, stress , alimentation, médicaments et hormones.

Pour aider avec la gestion de vos symptomes, votre diététiste vous renseignera sur les bonnes habitudes alimentaires à adopter. Pour les cas plus sévères, votre diététiste vous aidera à effectuer une diète d’élimination FODMAP afin d’identifier les aliments déclencheurs de symptômes et vous soulager davantage. 



  • Cami and I are makin delicious, hearty muffins today. Perfect to make with your little ones at home. We used raisins instead of nuts since she's still too small for them. Happy baking! The recipe is over at www.motivenutrition.com

  • Hot cross buns and tiny hands 💕
Every day, we come up with a baking or cooking project. For some, arts and craft ideas come easily but food projects are where my heart is at. So today, we made hot cross buns! They’re one of my favourite things to eat this time of year.
When I work in alone with my laptop st a café, I always look for places with hot cross buns since they’re only around a short time every year.
Since we won’t be heading out anytime soon, I thought why not try or hand at making it ourselves..and we had a blast.
It was messy, but it was worth it. 
From measuring the ingredients, to watching the dough rise, to “painting” the icing, to enjoying a hot bun after a nice walk...cooking projects are SO rewarding.
Let’s share some baking/cooking projects below! Will you be making pasteis de natas as @horaciodarruda suggested 💕
Let me know below!! 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼#stayhome
