Have Irritable Bowel Syndrome?

This is why you should take your well-being into your own hands
If you have IBS, what you are concerned with is handling issues such as abdominal pain, bloating, constipation, diarrhoea, flatulence and/or constipation. The underlying cause is usually an intolerance towards one or more of the following ingredients: fructans and galactans, fructose, and lactose and/or sorbitol. It can also be caused by a malabsorbtion of a certain food. Which of these applies to you is what you need to discover. While there is no guarantee that you will find one or more specific trigger, the chances are high. As soon as you find it, you’ll be able to free yourself from your symptoms. The goal is for you to not get feelings in your stomach anymore unless you’re in love. Our approach is not to make your bowel less sensitive (there is no recipe), but to regulate the consumption of those things that irritate it.

How you can find your symptom triggers

Everything you need to know about the test procedures, you will learn in the guidebook "The Nutrition Navigator". This book is based on the latest scientific findings and was developed in collaboration with patients. The book contains various advice on how you can successfully manage your irritable bowel in your everyday life. One topic, for example, is how you can successfully cope with stress and worries in a solution-oriented way. This is important, as less stress leads to better results and more well-being. Moreover, you can learn how you can motivate yourself to go through the testing period and the later adoption of your diet.

What can you do to get rid of your symptoms, once you know your trigger?

"The Nutrition Navigator" provides you with comprehensive food lists. They contain the tolerable portion sizes for more than 1,111 products.
