Hi.  I'm new here.  I have been struggling with what I'm now told is IBS for about 2 years now.  I have seen a couple of doctors here in FL where I moved 2 years ago, but they just shrug and say good luck with that.  It's very frustrating - as I am sure you all know.

 

Does anyone have any doctors they have seen in FL  that they would recommend? (I am about 2 hours away from Orlando, Tampa, and Jacksonville and am willing to travel)  I really need to work with someone who cares and works with me on this instead of sending me away to "see how it goes" and suggests "come back in a year".

 

Thanks so much.

Sorry to hear that your docs haven't been helpful - unfortunately, most docs don't like to work with IBS patients because they just don't know how to help them. I'm actually a Registered Dietitian and Certified LEAP Therapist - I specialize in food sensitivities and inflammatory conditions, such as IBS. I would be more than happy to work with you. What I do is I help clients identify "trigger" foods that are causing/contributing to symptoms and create a personalized nutrition plan for them - my clients have seen huge improvements in symptoms with the approach that I use (they currently average a 52% reduction in symptoms within the first 10 days alone, with continued improvement over a few weeks). Let me know if you'd like more info!
