For the past 17 years I have suffered from: IBS, Diverticulitis and Gastritis. Over the years I have independently tried elimination diets including the FODMAP. Nothing alleviated the pain and discomfort.
However, since following the FODMAP elimination and reintroduction diet under the guidance of a specialist dietician, for the first time in 17 years I am pain free. I can sit, lay down and bend without pain or discomfort. The horrible taste and coating in my mouth has gone I now enjoy what I eat and my quality of sleep has improved. I wish I had been fortunate enough to access this intervention all those years ago, so many years of pain could have been avoided – 67 year old female.
