The Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Package is designed for clients who have had clinical conditions such as Inflammatory Bowel Disorder (Crohn’s, Colitis etc.) and Celiac disease ruled out, and who require support to determine which foods or food components are contributing to their ongoing, unpleasant gastrointestinal symptoms.
NOTE: If you have been prescribed a “low-FODMAP diet” by your GP or Gastrolenterologist, then please click here for more information.
I will use a combination of standardized assessment tools for IBS, as well as the use of a Time-Food-Time-Symptom log which will help me pin-point which foods you eat are associated with which symptom(s). This is not a standard ‘food journal’ where one records everything they eat, but provides specific information which enables identification of problematic foods, food components or cooking methods, easier. You’ll have your choice of keeping record manually or on a spreadsheet with drop-down items and if necessary, it will be customized for you.
Based on the findings of the Time-Food-Time-Symptom logs, avoidance of specific foods will be recommended for a time, to assess the degree of improvement in systems. If these foods fall under classic “FODMAP” foods, other foods in that category will be assessed for sensitivity.
Please note that sometimes several iterations of the Time-Food-Time-Symptom logs are needed when there are multiple underlying sources of the gastric distress and sometimes I am able to identify the foods that make someone feel unwell before the end of the package. In such cases, the remainder of the services will be provided to you as a credit for you to use for other services, when you wish.
The Irritable Bowel Symptom Package includes three (3) one hour visits and may be combined to total 3 hours of service.
