After almost three decades suffering with chronic constipation and given nothing more than a 'diagnosis' of Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Bella finally found her root cause (more than one, in fact). Her mission now is to help others who have been given an IBS label to uncover and address their own root cause imbalances.
The symptoms experienced by someone given a label of IBS are very real. But, providing a ‘catch-all’ diagnosis that discourages sufferers from identifying and addressing the underlying root cause of their symptoms is an approach that is generally disempowering and well past its use-by date.

How research over the last 5 years about the gut microbiome has changed the way we look at IBS
Why identifying the actual cause of your symptoms is the only way to beat IBS
The most common root causes of IBS we see clinically
Our approach to addressing IBS root causes naturally
