Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Specialised and personalised dietary advice for relief of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) symptoms.


 Are you sick and tired of feeling sick and tired? Do you want to get back to enjoying life, socialising and eating out with your family and friends without the worry of the consequences? Well you've come to right place... 

IBS can be described as  a chronic and debilitating functional gut disorder, impacting on a persons quality of life. It is characterised by abdominal pain, bloating, flatulence (wind), cramps and change in bowel habit (constipation and/or diarrhoea predominant). 

First Line Advice: both dietary & lifestyle advice is aimed at identifying food and environmental triggers,  providing dietary advice in line with your symptoms. These include addressing potential external triggers, such as stress, anxiety, meal patterns and quality of meals. 

Second Line Advice: This is implemented when first line advice has already been implemented and satisfactory relief of symptoms has not been achieved,. This is known as the FODMAP diet. This diet is used to treat IBS related symptoms and has been scientifically proven to relief symptoms in 85% of patients with moderate-severe IBS. 

Here we will carry out an assessment to gather background information of the root causes and triggers of your IBS symptoms, alongside medical history, medications, stress levels, dietary habits and symptoms. This allows us to formulate a specialised dietary plan tailored to your needs with the aim to reduce symptoms and improve quality of life. This may also include lifestyle changes if symptoms are related to environmental triggers, for example, stress.

You will be provided with your full nutritional assessment, nutritional care plan and any potential support for getting further investigations and diagnosis via your GP (if not already completed) will be offered.

Follow up appointments will entail either First Line or Secondary Line dietary advice as stated below.
