Do you have Irritable Bowel Syndrome, where you often feel bloated and suffer from constipation and/or diarrhea? Do your symptoms worsen if you eat a lot of garlic or onions? Then you may benefit from doing a low FODMAP diet. FODMAP is an anacronym for fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides, and polyols. They are a group of sugars that may be difficult to digest. People with IBS often show significant improvement when they avoid these foods.
Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) is the term used when the bacteria in the large intestine proliferate into the small intestine. It’s not an infection and doesn’t involve pathogenic bacteria – it involves bacteria that are supposed to live in the large intestine. This causes food to ferment higher up in the digestive tract which leads to symptoms such as bloating, gas and diarrhoea. SIBO is often misdiagnosed as IBS.
Think you may have parasites? Parasites are not just a problem in third-world countries. They can be picked up easily in developed countries too.

There are some people who say we should shy away from eating too many grains. They say that we did not evolve with the ability to digest them, using that as an explanation for the rising prevalence of celiac disease, gluten intolerance, autoimmune disease, & other serious problems. However, science shows that eating whole grains has many benefits for our health. Aim to incorporate at least three servings of whole grains per week into your diet and shy away from refined and processed grains.
If you have celiac disease, strict, life-long avoidance of gluten is necessary. By removing the cause of the disease, a gluten-free diet allows the gut lining to heal and symptoms to resolve. Even small amounts of gluten can cause harm – it can elevate your gluten antibodies for up to 90 days! But there are some other things you can do to promote gut healing and help manage your condition.
