The Low FODMAP Diet is a treatment option for people with IBS symptoms. Some carbohydrates can trigger IBS symptoms because they are fermented by bacteria in our gut. These carbohydrates are called Fermentable, Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides and Polyols (FODMAPs).
This diet approach involves a 6-8 week strict exclusion phase followed by a structured food reintroduction phase and has been shown to provide symptom relief in up to 75% of patients suffering with IBS. It is a tricky diet to navigate but I will advise on the practical aspects of the diet and offer support on how to go low fodmap and continue with your busy lifestyle.

Diverticular disease is the presence of pouches along the inner wall in the large bowel and Diverticulitis is when these pouches become inflamed. People who suffer with chronic constipation have a higher incidence of diverticular disease and diet plays a pivotal role in preventing and managing an acute flare up. Together we will discuss how you can modify the fibre content of your diet to improve your symptoms and reduce your risk of further flare ups.

Inflammatory Bowel disease is a broad term to cover both Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative Colitis. I will take a thorough medical, symptom and diet history to help understand how best to help you. Are you unsure what to eat to prevent a flare up? Do you feel restricted in what you can eat, confused about what you should be eating or are you struggling with weight maintenance or low energy levels?
Do you also have an ileostomy or colostomy? I can help advise on what to eat, how to control your output and balance your hydration status and simply get on enjoying your life!

Gastro Oesophageal Reflux disease, GORD is a term used to describe symptoms including reflux, heartburn and oesophagitis and it is thought to affect 1 in 10 of us on a weekly basis. Whilst these symptoms might be due a medical reason, diet and lifestyle can also cause these symptoms. We can discuss known dietary changes that can help reduce or resolve your symptoms so you can finally throw away those Rennies or Gaviscon!

After suffering gastric problems and being in constant pain for months, my GP prescribed acid reflux medication and I was put on a waiting list for a Gastroscopy. I eventually paid for my symptoms to be investigated privately, which involved an ultrasound and gastroscopy which all came back clear. I finally got in touch with Victoria and after an hour zoom call and following her advice, within 2 weeks I felt the best I had for the previous 12 months.

I was having a lot of problems with my gut. I had got to a very dark place with everything. Victoria put me on the right track and now I feel great and can do a lot more things without the worry of finding a toilet. My life is now free so I am doing so much more with my time.

After starting the low fodmap diet after instruction from my doctor I initially found a therapist to guide me through it. This didn't really help, cost me a lot of money, and I continued to struggle with the diet. I found Victoria online and she has been there to help me throughout this diet and, even after the paid consultations, has responded to emails and even called me when I needed extra advice. I'm on the reintroduction phase now and a lot better than I was when I first came to Victoria. I can't recommend her enough.
