IBS Diet

Natural Gut Health through Diet

IBS diet


Manage your IBS without eliminating entire food groups or guessing at which foods are the problem. Let's identify the exact foods causing your symptoms.

“All disease begins in the gut” -Hippocrates

Is your food making you sick? Have you ever wondered which foods would help you feel great, and which ones are contributing to your IBS? By using food alone, we have the potential to get rid of your bloat and unpredictable bathroom visits.

Maybe you are suffering from IBS symptoms that won’t go away no matter what you try. Or perhaps the medications and treatments you’ve tried aren’t actually getting at the root cause of your problem.

This is an all too common 
IBS and other gastrointestinal symptoms are often directly related to specific immune reactions to the foods we eat, which may cause IBS. Even so- called “healthy” foods such as salmon, chicken, apples, or garlic can provoke symptoms in sensitive individuals. THERE IS NO “ONE SIZE FITS ALL” ANTI-INFLAMMATORY DIET.

Introducing the solution for food sensitivities

The first thing a food sensitivity sufferer needs to do is identify their trigger foods and food- chemicals. In the past, this has been easier said than done for many reasons: Food sensitivity reactions may be delayed by hours or even days after ingestion. Even if you suspect food sensitivities, would you consider that the headache you have right now was caused by something you ate yesterday? And often, food sensitivities are dose-related. This means a small or moderate amount of a reactive food may not cause any noticeable symptoms, but a larger amount does. Or perhaps when you eat 2- 3 moderately reactive foods at the same time, you get symptoms. But if you ate only 1 of those foods you wouldn’t. If that wasn’t enough of a challenge, reactive foods vary widely from person to person, even if they have the same symptoms, and there are usually many reactive foods and food-chemicals, not just one or two.

 

Fortunately our tailored program can help you quickly overcome even the most troublesome food sensitivity related problems. We use a patented blood test called MRT® (Mediator Release Test®) that accounts for both Type 3 and the more common Type 4 pathways. MRT also identifies reactions to food chemicals. This translates into faster and more complete relief for those who test with MRT. In fact, independent studies confirm MRT is the most accurate and most comprehensive blood test available for food and food-chemical reactions.

We make it easy for patients to consistently achieve the best outcomes in the shortest time– quick and lasting relief for a wide range of other food sensitivity related health problems. 

Together the we will create an “elimination diet”—but really what we like to call an “inclusion diet” because it is all about including the foods your body does NOT react to. We also create diet plans to prevent further food sensitivities from developing.
