Here is a place to discuss Fast Tract and other diets for treating IBS.AussieNanaParticipantFebruary 4, 2014 at 12:11 amPost count: 9
Paleo eating was very slow to deal with my IBS symptoms. It took years and I’ve had some good periods since it first started to improve. However one of the reasons to reconsider my paleo diet was a return to unstable bowel habits. It was starting to return to diarrhoea with some occasions of constipation. In a month of adding potato starch to my paleo diet I’ve gone from Bristol 1/2 and 5/6 to Bristol 4 mostly with slight shadings on either side. Even when things were good on the paleo I swung much more widely than that. Sorry if this is TMI but it is about IBS.Anne BoleynParticipantJanuary 9, 2015 at 9:35 amPost count: 1
Hello dr. Robillard. Greetins from Croatia, Europe. Firstly, I wanted to let you know I appreciate your work in terms of developing great diets for IBS and GERD. I would like to ask you a few questions. My story started 6 months ago when I was treated for H. Pylori using triple therapy. Soon after that ordeal I took cefuroxime for UTI and clyndamicin for tooth infection. That’s when I developed IBS symptoms. Since I can’t find any other explanation for my symptoms (belching, bloating, excessive gas, diarrhea) I assume it could be SIBO. Unfortunately, where I live there are no SIBO tests available and doctors don’t know anything about it so I can’t say for sure. But I’ve been through all other tests (including colonoscopy and Candida stool testing). I have major problems coping with this since I’m only 24 and a student of veterinary medicine. I eat meat, eggs, fish, cheese and am about to take oregano oil capsules since there is no treatment for SIBO in my country. Could you give me any suggestions on what else would be safe to eat as I feel very hungry and tired which is making me difficult to concentrate on studying for my exams. Sorry for my bad english, I’m doing my best. Kind regards.Norm RobillardKeymasterJanuary 11, 2015 at 2:48 amPost count: 438
Unfortunately, antibiotics can often lead to SIBO / IBS which is consistent with the symptoms you describe. My preference, before more antibiotics, is to limit fermentable carbohydrates as detailed in Fast Tract Digestion IBS. Many people skip the test an just try the diet. We can ship to Eastern Europe. See the book ordering tab.shirParticipantMarch 7, 2015 at 7:07 amPost count: 4
I want to know if this diet can also help with hiatal hernia.
I have the book and tried following it a bit. I noticed eggs eggravate my hernia and white rice gives me migraines in big quantities. Do you have any suggestions for hernia with Ibs? I want to mention that I don’t have heartburn symptoms, only Ibs dirrhea and hiatal hernia. The problem also is that I’m very skinny and I need to put on some weight and its very hard for me and low carb diets only make me lose more weight.Norm RobillardKeymasterMarch 7, 2015 at 12:17 pmPost count: 438
Hi shir, Hiatal hernia is most often an aggravating factor in acid reflux / LPR symptoms, I honestly don’t know why this condition would result in IBS symptoms. As for weight loss, diarrhea is an indication of malabsorption – and calorie loss. Correcting the problem is the key. Once corrected, weight can be maintained on either low carb or moderate carb diet.shirParticipantMarch 7, 2015 at 12:38 pmPost count: 4
So what do you suggest a fast track Ibs diet or something more?Norm RobillardKeymasterMarch 7, 2015 at 2:13 pmPost count: 438
Yes, I recommend FTD IBS. If you are interested in more direct help, we do offer consultation via Skype.shirParticipantMarch 7, 2015 at 2:33 pmPost count: 4
