Diet and IBS updated

I have had information on dietary exclusions on my website for almost 20 years - even a time when this advice was not popular.

Now the low FODMAP diet is widely known and encouraged by gastroenterologists and dietitians. The advice is similar to the exclusion diet that I have advocated for many years but does have a lot more resource and scientific backing. I have revised this section to take on board these changes
