The Gut Loving Podcast: All about IBS & the low FODMAP diet

Nov 16, 2017

Tune into this episode to find exactly how stress affects the gut, the ways in which it influences IBS symptoms and why stress management should be part of your IBS toolkit! Laura and Huelya also discuss some evidence-based tips and advice on how to manage stress.

The Gut Loving Podcast is all about irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and the low FODMAP diet! The low FODMAP diet is a relatively new approach to effectively treat IBS symptoms and is scientifically backed by a vast number of medical studies.

About this podcast

The Gut Loving Podcast is hosted by Laura Tilt (an experienced Dietitian in the UK specialising in IBS and the low FODMAP diet) and Huelya Akyuez, IBS patient and the creator of project sezamee - gut loving food (online video recipes, low FODMAP events and low FODMAP product development) after living with IBS for over 20 years.

Together, Laura and Huelya started The Gut Loving Podcast to help others with IBS get clear on the facts - and learn more about how to take control of their condition.

Remember: Don’t start the low FODMAP diet without consulting your doctor or low FODMAP specialised dietitian first. The content of our podcast is not intended to be a substitute for medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.
