Are you one of the people that suffer from uncomfortable, unpredictable and variable gastrointestinal symptoms such abdominal pain, discomfort, bloating, distension and unpredictable bowels? Do you suffer from anxiety of not knowing what the next day is going to bring and constantly trying to work out if something you had in your food was responsible for causing your bowels to misbehave?

There is strong evidence to support gastrointestinal conditions such as IBS, Coeliac, SIBO, and constipation, can have a dietary element and can be relieved or helped by dietary manipulation. The National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) has recognised the role of a Specialist Dietitian in identifying the dietary triggers in causation and relief from symptoms for IBS sufferers. NICE goes on to recommend that the patients who have IBS and need complex dietary intervention, including exclusion of certain foods, would need to do so only under the guidance of a specialist Dietitian.
