Healing IBS and Gut Health with Jeanette Hyde

by Dr. Rangan Chatterjee   /  December 12, 2018

Are you struggling with IBS or some aspect of your gut health? Right now, IBS affects almost 20% of the UK population at some point in their lives and it can be a major cause of distress and disability for the people who suffer from it. This week, I talk to nutritional therapist and author, Jeanette Hyde, about some of the common problems that she sees in her practice. She shares simple tips for treating these, improving symptoms of IBS and manipulating our microbiome – from time restricted eating to the foods that can help (and hinder) our gut health. Jeanette explains why she steers clear of the FODMAP diet for her clients and how personalisation is key when it comes to finding a diet and lifestyle that works for us. Jeanette and I also discuss alcohol consumption, something that is often overlooked or underestimated when we take a look at our lifestyles.

But gut health isn’t all about what we eat. We discuss how stress and other factors can also play a huge role. This conversation is full of great tips and I hope you find that it helps you!
