Is This Right for You?
You might think that you can do this by yourself and you might manage it. It could take you 6 months or a year to gather all the pieces together like I have done over the last 7 years but this is a complex diet – the list of allowed foods is only one piece of the puzzle. There are many pieces that make up the complete transformation. I can do this for you in 6 weeks, not 6 months or 1 year. In fact, I can almost guarantee your pain will be gone in a week and by the end of the 6 weeks, you will have all the tools you need to continue into the future with a whole new life plan, including all the facets that keep IBS under control and that goes far beyond just the food. This program is not just about food. It’s about lifestyle – living a more relaxed, vibrant, balanced life.
Think about it – 6 weeks instead of months or years more of pain and embarrassment and of stress for you and your family as you all cope with your ill-health. If you’re in pain right now, this is the time to get help. Not tomorrow or next week or after you have bought the house or after the kids have left home. Right now. Let today be the last day you suffer from pain.
Want to Learn More?
Fill in the application form to receive a complimentary phone call to discuss your IBS issues and whether you would be a good fit for the program.
Perhaps you want to know....
Why do I have to fill in an application form?
I like to have a phone consultation with anyone who is wanting to join the program so that we can have an in-depth discussion about your issues and whether the program is a good fit for you. My program covers diet and a balanced lifestyle - I am a nutritional therapist, not a doctor and don’t give medical advice. If I feel that your problem is more than IBS and that you need medical help, I will not accept you onto the program.
Do I have to pay for the phone consultation?
No. After filling in the application form, you will be directed to a page where you can schedule a call with me. I will call the phone number you enter at the scheduled time and we will have our discussion.
How do I pay for the program?
Once we have decided you are a good fit for the program, you can pay by credit card or PayPal or I can send you the details for a bank transfer if you prefer that method of payment.
Is there an installment plan?
Yes, you can pay in three installments if that suits your budget.
How soon can I start the program?
Once you are accepted into the program, you can start the next Monday. Meanwhile, I send you an accurate, up-to-date food chart with amounts to keep you going until the official launch date.
I am very picky about food. How can I know that I will like your meal plans?
Before you start, I send you a series of questions about your food likes, dislikes and known intolerances as well as various lifestyle questions. I then tailor-make your first week’s meal plans for you. I get these to you a few days before you start so you have time to look them over, ask me questions and do the necessary shopping.
I don’t like cooking and don’t have much time for it. Will these meal plans include complicated meals?
I appreciate that there are times when you want to cook and times when you have to make a quick meal. I include many tasty recipes for dinner to keep the food interesting but there is usually a very simple alternative if that’s what you prefer that day.
Will I have to cook a separate meal for the rest of my family?
No, these meal plans are designed to include dinners that the whole family can eat. They can have their high Fodmap foods at the other meals when a family often eats separately anyway and take less time to prepare.
What can this program do for me that I can’t do for myself?
You might think that you can do this by yourself and you might manage it, if you don’t give up first. It could take you six months or a year to gather all the pieces together like I have done over the last seven years but as I have said, this is a complex diet – the list of allowed foods is only one piece of the puzzle. There are many pieces that make up the complete transformation. I can do this for you in six weeks, not six months or one year or three years. In fact, I can almost guarantee your pain will be gone in a week.
One of my clients, Kelly Reidinger said after the program, “Suzanne's knowledge on how to incorporate this diet into your life is invaluable and I couldn't have done it without her.”
And Rachel who tried to go it alone said, “One of the GI doctors who diagnosed me with IBS suggested a low-FODMAP diet but he had no additional information on it -- he’d printed off the Internet! I tried to follow it myself and research online but all I could manage by myself was hard boiled eggs and low-carb popcorn because these were the only things that seemed to keep my stomach calm. This could not continue. I dropped weight quickly and tons of energy and lived in fear of going out to eat.”
I can give you the solution in a minimum amount of time and I will give you only what works. You will be supported along the way by someone who cares and understands your experience.
Will I really get the kind of in-depth support I need on this program?
I can assure you that I am there for you 100% of my waking hours. We have a weekly phone consultation for up to 30 minutes, and you have daily email access to me so that you can get support and your questions answered straight away.
As you can see from my client, Betty’s comment here, “Suzanne is just an email away to divert any questions and offer support.”
And another client, Margaret Kneeland said, “Suzanne was very responsive to my questions throughout the program. ”
And Judy Kemp said, “I can't thank Suzanne enough for her time, patience and support.”
I have a busy life and not much time. How complicated will this program be?
My client, Sarah said, “Suzanne is incredibly knowledgeable, available, and friendly. Her program is easy to follow in that it is highly organized. Suzanne's program is focused on helping the client as a whole person. Suzanne is a true coach.
And Margaret said, “Suzanne's program was very easy to follow and the recipes were delicious. The cadence of the training was great to learn the various methods other than eating that were involved in controlling the IBS. “
Will I be able to do this by myself after the six weeks?
Yes, you will be able to do this by yourself, but I don't abandon you. At the end of the program, you will be invited to a private client Facebook group where you can continue to ask questions and get my support. However, most clients feel like they have all the tools they need to do this completely by themselves.
My client, Susanne said, “Now that I have gone through Suzanne's program, I am managing my symptoms, and I feel better than I have in years!! Thank you Suzanne! I praise God for sending her into my life!”
And Betty said, “I have my health back and the tools to go on from here.”
And Ed said, “I have not had any major IBS symptoms in the four months since starting the Low Fodmap Diet to the time of writing this testimonial. I am a new man!”
And Kelly said, ”After 6 weeks, I feel like I have all the weapons I need to tackle my digestive problems for the rest of my life!”
How long does it take for the diet to work?
My client from above, Ed said, “After day one of being on the program, I felt much better. I was amazed how quickly it worked.”
If you have IBS with diarrhoea, you will get this amazingly quick response to an accurate low Fodmap diet. Some take a little longer – usually those with constipation because their systems are slower and so the response time to the new diet is lower.
But even so, here is what Sylvia who has IBS with constipation said, “It's been a very enlightening experience, within a couple of weeks I became more regular than I can ever remember - life changing! I can now see my feet, no longer looking 5 months pregnant, no more belly-full of wind and to top it all lost a few pounds around my new found flatter stomach.”
What happens if I need more support after the program is finished?
By the end of the program, you will have a final individualized diet that suits your digestive system and you will know how to do it by yourself, but I like you to keep in touch so you will be invited to join a private Facebook group where you can continue to get support.
