IBS is a complicated illness with current NHS treatments offering sufferers only 30% chance of success. With the innovative Low FODMAPs method we can boost these stats up to an impressive 75% or higher (our stats 95%).
We are specialists in IBS treatment and management programmes and our methods really work.
Gillian Killiner BSc. (Hons) MSc. RD is a Specialist Dietitian and is the only private dietitian available in Northern Ireland trained by Kings College London to practice the Low FODMAP’s diet.
A new and innovative approach for the management of IBS, FODMAPS is the name for a collection of molecules found in food that can be poorly absorbed by some people.
This diet has found to be effective in 75% of IBS patients (worldwide stats)
When the molecules are poorly absorbed in the small intestine of the digestive tract, these molecules then continue along their journey along the digestive tract, arriving at the large intestine, where they act as a food source to the bacteria that live there normally.
The bacteria then digest/ferment these FODMAPs and can cause symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome
The low FODMAP diet is a relatively new treatment option. As such, research into the dietary strategy continues. Many websites and some practitioners are unaware of the recent research advances in this area and may therefore offer inaccurate advice.
