Are Your Symptoms Really Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)?
Have you gone to the doctor for stomach issues and left without any relief? Do you suffer from issues like bloating, cramping or diarrhea? If you’re lucky, maybe your doctor ran some tests, but still found nothing wrong.
I can guess what happens next: your doctor then comes to the conclusion that you have irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and either refers you out or prescribes a medication for symptoms.
If this doesn’t sit well with you, then you are at the right place.
Taking A Closer Look
You literally are what you eat. If you are eating foods that irritate the gut lining, then you are feeling symptoms of IBS. Reducing your intake of sugar, alcohol, and gluten is a great start! However, you could be reacting to healthy foods such as beef, garlic or broccoli!
Maybe you’ve tried keeping a food diary, but it didn’t work. This is because some reactions take 2-3 days to occur! Some symptoms may not even be felt and also affect other processes in the body. That means that you may think you are reacting to a different food which you are not. In other words, the eggs you had for breakfast may not affect you until lunch the next day!

Test, Don’t Guess
The best way to start on your path to healing is getting Oxford’s LEAP MRT food sensitivity test. This approach has been shown to reduce or eliminate IBS symptoms.
There are about 28 million IBS sufferers that will use this test and get help! Are you one of them?
The MRT is an easy blood draw that can be done anywhere lab tests are done. The kit is complete and is also easy to do. After completing the kit, not only do you get a consultation with me, but you’ll also receive a specific diet plan to rebuild your tolerance to harmful foods.
Are you tired of feeling yucky all the time?! Wouldn’t you like to enjoy a meal without worrying about how you’ll feel later?
