Many of our clients come to us having experimented with a range of dietary changes to try to control their digestive symptoms, sometimes eliminating important food groups. For some this helps, but many simply end up very confused about food, and often assume that they have developed food allergies. True food allergies are relatively uncommon, and even less likely to develop after childhood. Rather, reactions to food commonly occur due to an interaction between food compounds and the microbiome, and the effect this has on the intestinal wall. Understanding these mechanisms enables us to not only support those suffering from IBS / SIBO and related conditions, but to select appropriate interventions and know when it’s time to swap to an alternate protocol.
