FODMAPs Programme - Effective Treatment for IBS

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is one of the most functional gastrointestinal disorders. Symptoms can include abdominal pain or discomfort, constipation, diarrhoea, bloating and gas. Other negative symptoms of IBS include back pain, migraine, depression and stomach issues.

IBS most commonly affects people between 20 and 30 and is twice as common in women than men. It is thought that up to 20% of the population suffer from IBS. IBS is an emerging health issue commonly associated with diet and lifestyle behaviours.

Not surprisingly, living with IBS can be difficult. It can have a negative impact on your professional, personal and social life. Many people go undiagnosed and never learn how to take control of their IBS. Some people just learn to cope with the lack of sleep, lethargy, anxiety, time off work, avoidance of stressful or social situations which are commonly associated with IBS. But you don’t have to put up with this.

The good news is that nutrition is extremely effective for the treatment of IBS with up to 70% of people experiencing relief once embarking on a special FODMAPs diet. The FODMAPs diet, which has been specifically designed for the treatment and management of IBS, is most effective when delivered by a FODMAPs trained Qualified Dietitian. Your 1 to 1 sessions will ensure that no question goes unanswered and you finish your programme having experienced relief of symptoms associated with IBS, meaning:

  • No more bloating
  • No more diarrhoea
  • No more constipation
  • No more gas
  • Increased energy levels
  • Increased quality of life
  • Better nutritional status
  • Feeling healthier and happier

We recommend that prior to committing to the FODMAPs plan that you book in for an initial 45 minute assessment with a Fully Qualified Dietitian who will be able to determine if the FODMAPs programme is the right step for you.
