Irritable Bowel Syndrome
I have extensive experience providing irritable bowel syndrome treatment in Sydney.
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common gastrointestinal disorder that significantly impacts a person’s quality of life. IBS symptoms include cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, and gas. Individuals also experience diarrhoea, constipation, or both.
- Those with IBS may encounter times when the symptoms worsen and periods where they improve or disappear. One can rarely cure this condition but can manage it long-term.
- Whereas IBS causes digestive discomfort, it does not – as a rule – cause inflammation or increase the risk of inflammatory bowel disease and colon cancer.
- In most cases and with my help, you can manage IBS through diet, lifestyle, and, if required, stress management. The low FODMAP diet is a relatively new, evidence-based approach that helps people with IBS identify the foods they can tolerate well and those they cannot.
- Accepted and recommended as one of the most effective dietary therapies for IBS, the regimen has a success rate approaching 75%.
I began implementing the low FODMAP diet and additional supporting strategies at its inception. Together we will work through the testing phase to identify the food categories that trigger your symptoms. I will then design a healthy eating plan that minimises IBS symptoms and is easy to maintain, providing you with the irritable bowel syndrome help you need.
