Fast Tract Diet Official Facebook Discussion Group


We recently launched the Fast Tract Diet Official Facebook Discussion Group. If this sounds interesting to you, please read the book, Fast Tract Digestion IBS or Fast Tract Digestion Heartburn,  join the group and start posting!

Our mission as a group is to help 10 million people (this also includes YOU) with functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGIDs) regain their health while getting off drugs and avoiding antibiotics. We also encourage dialogue on any and every aspect of digestive health and related topics.

The focus of this group

1. Discuss the ideas, practices and low FP foods and recipes presented in the Fast Tract Digestion books.

2. Share information, experiences and tools that will promote natural healing and inspire us all to have more informed conversations with our friends, family and medical practitioners.

3. Encourage ourselves to seek out Dietary, Behavioral and Holistic Approaches (DBHAs) instead of reaching for a prescription as an easy solution.

Our progress will be measured one person at a time early on. But, we feel confident that we can drive this change on a much larger scale based on:
• The sheer number of people affected
• The realization that gut microbiota and diet are at the core of the problem
• The growing evidence that the drugs used to treat these conditions don’t address the underlying causes yet have side effects and carry long term health risks.

Everything on this page is open for discussion and subject to improvement.

Who We Are Not

We are NOT at war with drug companies or doctors. Most of us will or have benefited at one point or another from modern medicines, particularly as we age. But since the ultimate measure of progress is regaining our health, applying scientific principles to DBHAs can be very effective with minimal risk.

This noble mission can be only realized and accomplished by your help and genuine participation.

We look forward to seeing you there!

About the Author:

Norm Robillard received his Ph.D. in microbiology from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst studying Bacillus anthracis and other Bacillus species. His post-doctoral training at Tufts University focused on antibiotic resistance and gene transfer between the gut microbes Bacteroides fragilis and E. coli. During his career in pharma / biotech, Dr. Robillard studied the genetics of antibiotic resistance, septic shock, viral illnesses and antimicrobial and antibody-based therapies prior to founding the Digestive Health Institute. Dr. Robillard is the creator of the Fast Tract Diet, author of the Fast Tract Digestion book series and publisher of the Fast Tract Diet mobile app. He was the first to propose excess intestinal fermentation as the underlying cause of acid reflux and explained the connection between intragastric pressure from gas-producing bacteria in our intestines, nutritional malabsorption and the symptoms of acid reflux. His latest book series, Fast Tract Digestion provides a safe and effective dietary tool and behavioral strategy as an alternative to proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), H2 blockers, IBS drugs or antibiotics for heartburn, acid reflux, GERD, laryngopharyngeal reflux disease (LPR), IBS and other SIBO related conditions.

    Agh ?– don’t know how to do social media or blogs but REALLY want to know if the new fructose-free Cassava syrup (35% glucose, 35% maltose, and 30% complex [carbohydrates] ) , used in moderation , is ok for SIBO. Have read Fast Tract Digestion which has become my Bible, numerous times as well as about 6 other books concerning SIBO. ( The SIBO Solution has also been particularly helpful) but haven’t been able to figure out the answer to this question.

      Hi Gail, The glucose and maltose won’t contribute to FP. I recommend using the calculator for the 30% complex carbohydrates using an estimated GI of 50. You will need to enter the actual amount of the complex carbs. For instance, if you were using 30 grams of the product 10 grams would be the complex carbs.
