If you have gut issues such as Irritable Bowel Disease (IBS), Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) or endometriosis then you have arrived at the right place.
I am a Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist working to help you find relief through using a low-FODMAP diet. If you have celiac disease I can help you navigate a gluten free life, along with incorporating a low-FODMAP diet if necessary.
Over 75% of people diagnosed with IBS experience improvement in symptoms through this approach. This isn’t a diet per se, it is a discovery process broken down into 2 phases.
Phase 1 is 2-6 weeks of strict avoidance of high in FODMAP foods. Don’t worry I, or another dietitian trained in this approach, can help you with a personalized plan.
Phase 2 is a gradual reintroduction of high FODMAP foods to determine what and how much of each food group you can tolerate.
The goal is to add back as many foods as possible. As the gut heals more and more foods may be tolerated.
What you eat isn’t the whole picture. Through lifestyle, rest and self care you can further manage, and even eliminate your gut issues.
If you read my first post you know that I too have suffered for years (20+) with celiac disease, IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and consequently SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overload). I have been able to improve many of my symptoms through a low-FODMAP (and gluten free) diet, as well as with a few lifestyle tweaks. My wish for anyone with debilitating gut pain, bloating, diarrhea and constipation is to know that there are many things you can do to live a happy and pain-free life.
