Home | Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Irritable Bowel Syndrome is one of the most common disorders of the gut and affects the health and well-being of millions of people around the world every day. If you suffer from IBS you’ll be familiar with debilitating symptoms like abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation and bloating. Some of our clients describe IBS as an invisible disability that stops them achieving their dreams; others just want to get on with a healthy life, being all they can be. The good news is that with the right help and advice most people with IBS report feeling better within days, just like one of our clients below:

Following the low FODMAP diet made a huge difference to my symptoms where I felt I had no problem at all really. It was very helpful to have the background expertise knowing that there is help for these problems. I was very surprised that by eliminating certain foods that I would get such quick results. I would recommend this program to others with IBS because it definitely keeps the problem under control.” Janine J., NSW, Australia

Our three-stage Gut Feelings program represents a proven treatment plan for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Together the stages form a step-by-step online process to treat diarrhea, constipation and bloating, and manage your IBS in precise detail. They show you exactly what to do every step of the way, right down to which foods to eat when and why.

The Gut Feelings program was developed by Dr Kerith Duncanson.  Kerith didn’t set out to become an expert in the ‘functional gut’ area, but she found her patients were thriving following her specific dietary advice combined with the coaching and tools for long term well being.

Many clients described their results as “life changing” and people with IBS travelled from near and far to access her IBS diet advice. Local and regional Gastroenterologists and General Practitioners began referring many of their patients to Kerith, reassured that the resources had been developed by an Accredited Practising Dietitian.

Appointments booked out quickly and it became clear that more needed to be done. The result is the online Gut Feelings program, to enable more people to get the help and support they need.

The Gut Feelings program helps you treat and manage IBS or IBS related symptoms. Most importantly the program is about you. It is focused on how you feel now and how you want to feel in the future.

“My goal is to help you live the life you dream. Too many people are held back from living fully because of the symptoms of IBS. The really good news here is that it won’t take you 12, 8 or even 4 weeks to feel better. Most people who have started these programs describe feeling better in just a few days.”

You can also elect to see one of our Dietitians for a face-to-face consultation or Dr Kerith Duncanson for a Skype consultation, or complete our three stage Gut Feelings program, or a combination of all three types of consultations. It largely depends on your needs and circumstances.

Bookings for appointments can be made by calling 1300 652 620.

FODMAP Diet

How is this FODMAP Diet program different?

We take a holistic approach based on science and evidence. We avoid complex scientific jargon, preferring to use everyday language. You’ll always know what’s going on and why you need to do certain things. And you’ll be relieved to know that we’re not embarrassed to ‘talk crap’, as you know, it comes with the territory!

Most importantly this program is not just another diet plan. The 3 stages of the program provide all the information, tools and coaching you need to feel better now and also to keep you in the best of health over the long term.

And best of all, every client is personally managed by Dr Kerith Duncanson – not a fancy computer program in the background. There are 3 stages which should be completed in order.  Click here for more information about each stage of the program.
