Have you been diagnosed with a digestion disorder? Are you frustrated that your doctors are unsure about what to advise for your diet?
What you eat can have a significant impact on bowel symptoms. With 15 years of experience as a Registered Dietitian in the NHS and private practice, as well as specialist training in the treatment of digestion problems, I help you to identify the foods causing your digestion problems. I can never guarantee ‘curing’ your digestion, but the vast majority of my clients see a significant improvement in symptoms. Here is what some of my clients say.
New low FODMAP diet: 75% see significant improvement
The low FODMAP diet was developed at Monash University in Australia, and has been published in international medical journals. It is now accepted and recommended as one of the most effective dietary therapies for IBS and other digestive conditions. In February 2015 it was added to the National Institute of Clinical Excellence’s IBS treatment guidelines.
- low FODMAP diet significantly reduces symptoms in 75% of people
- elimination phase: high FODMAP foods eliminated for 2-4 weeks
- reintroduction phase: high FODMAP foods systematically reintroduced to identify your problem foods (not everyone reacts to the same FODMAPs)
- it is important to have the advice of an experienced dietitian to help guide you along your low FODMAP journey
