This plan is so valuable that we decided to add value with an extra 28 days in the app to guide you through reintroduction!
How can the low-fodmap diet help you?
The benefits of eating a low Fodmap diet
The best way to address any autoimmune symptom (outside of your docs treatments) is to make appropriate changes to your diet and lifestyle.
The benefit of making changes is clear. When we take inflammatory stimuli out of the body we see new healthy possibilities that allow us to focus our healing efforts.
Knowing which substances and circumstances are affecting our condition negatively can help us pin down the causes of inflammation and refine our treatment options.
This newly acquired knowledge helps us to make better choices and that means making fewer unnatural interventions.
We don’t need to treat the inflammation that we don’t cause! Understanding how our actions affect our condition is vital, and diet is the major component in this conundrum.
Avoiding trigger foods can make you feel better and produces fewer flares, it might even put some conditions into remission
I can make these statements confidently because I’ve spent the last 15 years diligently researching food and its effect on disease.
The thousands of articles and studies I’ve consumed from various nutritionists, scientists, doctors, and naturopaths leaves me in absolutely no doubt that biochemistry is directly affected (negatively and positively) by the foods that we eat.
My experiences of helping people change their diet show me that biochemical reactions don’t always work the same across different people.
Therefore, we have to treat “every body” differently where food and supplementation are concerned.
Using a personalised trial and error approach in combination with diagnostic tools like allergy tests can reveal our sensitivities, and give us a window on symptom resolution that using drugs could never do.
Diagnostic tests help us determine the severity of our condition, the pathways involved, the phenotype, and which allergies and sensitivities negatively affect our our bodies when they are presented with a particular compound.
One of the diets which is often found to be helpful for a large percentage of the population who have intestinal-based autoimmune diseases is the low Fodmap diet
This “low reactive” nutritional approach has a fabulous track record of relieving irritable bowel syndrome and other autoimmune disease symptoms
Foods containing short-chain carbohydrates like sugars (natural and processed) are often poorly absorbed by the intestines in IBS and other intestinal disorders.
This failure of digestion can occur for many reasons, but it almost always triggers abdominal pain, bloating, diarrhoea, constipation, and gas which can lead to higher levels of inflammation and disease symptoms.
What does “FODMAP” mean?
The F in Fodmap describes”fermentable” foods.
These substances are carbohydrates which fail to get digested properly by the bacteria in the gut.
This fermentation process produces intestinal gases which cause discomfort.
The O in Oligosaccharides denotes things like GOS (galacto-oligosaccharides or galactans ) and fructans and.
Legumes, onions, garlic, wheat, and rye are the usual sources of these substances.
D is for Disaccharides!
Dairy products like milk cheese yoghurt‘s contain the disaccharide lactose.
M is for Monosaccharides
One of the challenges of this diet is the removal of the natural sugar fructose. Many fruits and our friend natural source of sugar (honey) contains fructose. Processed foods such as high fructose corn syrup’s also contain fructose and should be avoide.
P is for Polyols.
Polyols are things like mannitol and sorbitol which are found in vegetables and fruits. They are also used in processed foods as artificial sweeteners
An estimated 10 to 20% of the global population is affected by these disorders
So, the role of the Ford map diet is vital in trying to change the way we eat to this less reactive system of eating.
We know that these types of gut-based conditions can be triggered by food because we have the well studied and documented case of coeliac disease which is caused by gluten sensitivity
Taking care of the gut then should be viewed as an integral part of our life, and should be a major area of research for anyone with intestinal issues
And we should act urgently! This isn’t going to go away by itself.
Unresolved gut problems can cause damage to the intestinal lining and that contributes to inflammation in the intestines, infection, and nervous system abnormalities due to disruption of the signals being sent between the brain and the intestines.
I think it’s pretty common knowledge now that any damage to the intestinal walls or even the mucus linings can allow leaky gut syndrome is to develop. This is where foods to pass through the gut wall into the body (that should not happen!) and are then recognised as antigens by the immune system.
This then sets off an inflammatory cascade and causes our bodies to react to those food particles every time we eat them.
This is what acquiring an allergy looks like!
Add into the mix lifestyle factors such as stress, invasive medical procedures, certain medications, poor diet, and we have a recipe for disaster
Our aim should be to remove all of the stress from the gut so that it can work properly and in harmony with the gut bacteria that live inside there.
I would also recommend people take a broad spectrum probiotic under the direction of their doctor. Gut bacteria are essential to life and many vital bodily systems you would never associate with the gut. They assimilate our food, produce certain vitamins and substances needed for good health, and can even contribute to a decline in our mental health
The main aim of the Low five map diet is to take out all the stresses so our gut can heal and return to balance.
Once that process has started we can then re-introduce food back Usually, we would start seeing results pretty quickly and then start reintroducing higher fodmap foods after 28 days.
This allows us to see which foods will be tolerated and which foods we need to leave out for a longer period.
Sometimes we can retrain the immune systems so that it stops reacting to the foods which it has acquired an antigen response to.
Once you have started your re-introduction it will be easy to see which foods you are tolerant of and which you are not.
The first 2 to 6 weeks of the Fodmap diet will tell you a great deal about your diet and how to proceed, our app will help you visualise that work and prove to yourself that bad food choices are effecting your health negatively.
Once you have all the data from your personal experience and can see it displayed in chartds in the app you’ll be able to figure out your own version of the Fodmap diet that works best for you.
With diligent notetaking, Dedication, patience, and hard work it is highly likely that you will be able to move back into having a reasonably healthy normal life, but it does take work.
If you see no results after the first 2 to 6 weeks, it may be that you need to move onto a different type of diet that suits you better.
This would require you to undergo food sensitivity testing to determine exactly which foods you are allergic to.
This all sounds very troubling and tiresome, but as I say it is worth doing, because who wants to live the old way in pain and disease?
The great thing about being on our Ford map diet is that you get to choose which foods are best for you.
Some people can re-introduce some high photomap foods back into the diets quite quickly.
Usually, that process starts gradually, but I would say from my experience that once you pass the three month mark, and have things tightly controlled, you could then start adding in higher Fodmap.
Please remember to take great notes on the reintroduction too! Just because you had a few small wins doesn’t make you invincible You can soon slip back into old patterns of disease if you don’t take good care of your diet.
Our goal should be to find the very best way of eating for our particular biochemistry. That process is going to take time, patience, and hard work.
There is no one size fits all diet for any condition, person, or even disease, but that doesn’t mean we are powerless!
We simply have to take full responsibility for the foods we put in our mouth‘s and use the lessons learned from dietary elimination.
There is nothing better than returning to full health after taking charge of your health. It is revolutionary, it is self-propelling, and can save us from a miserable painful life with not much to smile about and the lingering spectre of a potential early death the only future.
I would encourage you to take massive action with your diet and mix it heartily with mindful eating. This way you will release the best future version of yourself.
I look forward to inspiring you to make these incredible advances in your diet and thinking.

ACCOUNTABILITY COACHING PACKAGES
An Autoimmune Paleo (AIP) diet is an anti-inflammatory diet which may be helpful in managing autoimmune conditions.
AIP diets contain foods known, or thought to be, least reactive to people with sensitive immune systems. These foods are almost always natural whole foods which contain no gluten and low levels of lipopolysaccharides, carrageenan and other substances known to negatively impact the gut membrane and immune system.
During our 28-day paleo Reset programme, you will be encouraged to eliminate some of the following foods groups considered to be irritant to the gut and damaging to general health.
Processed food chemicals
You may be looking at the above list thinking…That doesn’t leave me with much food to eat?
Our diets and meal plans are incredibly tasty and easy to make. You will be surprised and amazed at the tasty and easy to use recipes which build health and help to combat disease.
In my experience of using these recipes, it is almost always the case that users come to me and say “I wish I’d have known how to eat properly years ago!” I know that’s how I felt about using food properly once I became sick. Eating for health and vitality is the most interesting, exciting and valuable investment you can make in your physical being.
Once you start on this journey you will never look back!
The AIP diet will not only provide you with diet suggestions and recipes you’ll also receive a structured schedule for meals times which tells you when to eat and also provides healthy snacks suggestions.

Here are some of the nutrient-dense foods you can expect to find in the AIP protocol:
Vegetables (except for nightshades)
Fruit in moderation
Grass-fed and organic meats
Wild-caught seafood and fish
Organ meats (liver, kidney)

We have hundreds of different recipes for you to enjoy and we’re happy to put those into your app so you can enjoy your diet wherever you go.
You can also find recipes and suggestions on our website. We will be updating the website with recipes and eating ideas to creatively supercharge your nutritional intake and health.
Do you want to make this process even easier? our app provides a ready-made shopping list so you don’t even have to figure out what foods you need to buy at the market.
All foods are weighed and measured and any excess will be used in the next day’s meals to save time and money.
Eating right has never been so easy!
Your progress will depend on your level of commitment to the plan you are following. I will be here to drive you on and keep you on track! It is my greatest wish to see you thrive and come alive, so I’ll be at your side monitoring your progress and adding suggestions where I see fit.
When we work together like this we see immediate results because you become empowered simply by knowing you are in control of your health destiny.
Adding nutritionally dense foods is just one part of your health revolution, but it is without a doubt the most effective way of changing the chemical balance in the body and kick-starting the healing process.
Let me be brutally honest here and say “you cannot get well doing the same stuff that got you into this situation in the first place”. So, aggressive life change is the only way to effectively change the trajectory of your disease and life.
When we go all in we think and feel better and start to see immediate changes. This doesn’t mean your disease will simply disappear on day one! Our bodies take time to heal so we have to be patient! However, as we build good habits and nourish we start to see the benefits and this reinforces the changes we are making and soon these changes will become life long healthy habits that you’ll want to pass on to your friends and family.
The rate of your progress will in some regard depend on the disease, the damage caused to the body and the levels of toxicity that have been accumulated.
The quickest way to be better is to act better by taking out all the bad and putting in all of the good!
I have pioneered this approach and will be here to show you exactly what is good and bad and that will supercharge your health and cut the length of recovery time needed for you to feel better.
My biggest regret in starting my disease journey through self-treatment is that it took so long to figure all of this out because I had no one to help me. Trust me, I have already made all of the mistakes and I can not only help you avoid bad information that can set you back, but I can also transfer all of my knowledge directly into your life through this beautiful technology we are providing here.

This hard work is not for my benefit?! If I didn’t care so much I would just set you on your new path and leave you to get on with it. That is not what os going to go on here! I’m here to coach you and to encourage you to make the changes you know you have to make.
If I have to sit and make you meditate then I will!
Back when I started my health journey I was taught a valuable lesson by Paul Chek. He used to say “I can’t come down there and make you eat right” and guess what, he’s right! The problem is that what you eat in private, you wear in public.
The times have changed dramatically since I used to listen to Paul Chek. I can now come into your life and make you eat right! It is my aim to use this app to make you not only eat right for your own sake, but also to implement good practices like meditation and exercise so your life dramatically improves.
I really care, so I’ll be here to guide and encourage you in this immersive experience that we’re going to undertake together.
You will be expected to do the following:
Diligently engage in all areas of the app.
Record all your data
Follow the diet plans we work on together!
Send me pictures of your meals through the app.
Engage with me when I send you messages through the app. I will be on you hard if I see you slipping!
Prepare notes so you are prepared to ask your most important questions in our valuable video chat time. I want you to get the most out of our time together.
Work with your doctor and health practitioner to provide us with important information that you are required to follow by your healthcare professionals.
Inform us of all the important information as to why you may not be suitable to join this service.
I am not a registered health professional and do not take any responsibility for the suggestions you encourage me to make in the app,. The information included in the app is designed to give you a guideline of how to live best.
You are responsible for tailoring this information to your requirements and we take no responsibility for any negative consequences incurred due to your or your practitioner’s advice.
The app also has the ability to provide you with timed reminders for your supplement regime. Please inform us beforehand of these requirements. We take no responsibility for your suggestion and only offer timely reminders. We do not offer supplement advice but we do encourage you to talk with your health care professional so we can help you remember when to take your supplements.
My philosophy of health is underpinned by my website tag line…”Be better!” But, what exactly does that mean?
It is quite simple. We have to improve our lives in every area to bring about sufficient epigenetic change that turns into better health outcomes.
the areas we will be working in will include:
Food diary and journalling
Routine and habit building
Tracking and cross-referencing all the data you collect in easy to understand charts.
The basic idea behind all this easy to document data taking is that it is always convenient to take a moment and tell yourself how you’re feeling.
the greatest advancement you can make in your health is by documenting which foods had which affects on your condition.
Let’s take diet as an example.
You eat a certain range of foods and record how they made you feel throughout the day.
You record your mood, physical condition, and symptoms and over time. Your results will instantly appear in the app dashboard! The easy to understand graphical representations of what works best to give you the results your sacrifices deserve will drive you to greater levels of commitment.
Now think about exercise…
Once you have the diet under control and feel more energised, you’ll be able to start upping your commitment to exercising.
Our app will help you to track your exercise results remotely by linking up to your apple fitness device or Fitbit! Now imagine being able to track all of your vitals and output against how you feel and what foods caused these changes! Cross reference this data against your physical weight and body composition measurements and you’ll have a gold mine of information to draw on.
Positive reinforcement like that is worth more than gold because it keeps you engaged, motivated and almost guarantees you get the best from the program and your health.
We even have an elimination section in the app where you can record the results of your diet on your stomach and digestion. Yep, that’s right. You even get to record how your poop improved along with the changes you made. This may seem odd or disgusting but we need to move past that thinking and understand that most of our autoimmune problems come from some form of gut involvement.
With this in mind, do you think it is valuable to understand which foods, eaten at which time of day, made the greatest improvements in physical symptoms and quality of elimination?
We have a very strong philosophy on the services we offer.
Our approach involves being engaged with you from the first contact to the last email. We will work with you to help you fully understand what is required of you and how we are going to work together to help you get the best of your time with us.
With this in mind, we will already have invested serious time and effort in providing you with our technology and service. We take our commitment seriously and hope you do too! With that in mind, I am not afraid to say that WE DO NOT OFFER REFUNDS!
Let me explain…
We are in the quitting business! My job is to not let you quit under any circumstances!
If I let you quit we have both failed.
Not refunding your purchase keeps you fully committed to getting the most out of this life-changing program of self-improvement you have invested in.
In the same way that any investment can go up or down, we have a philosophy that when you invest in us and yourself you win!
Failure is not an option for either of us, so we will work hard to make sure you are fully aware of all commitments and processes involved in being better.
Life doesn’t give refunds? It gives rewards in abundance! Abundance springs into your life when you engage with life in ways others fail to do.
Be the best you!
If you find the plan doesn’t suit you then please feel free to ask for an amendment or to switch to another plan that is easier for you to follow. Change is difficult and some changes are more difficult to make than others. I want to work with you to avoid stressful situations that can lead to rejection. My aim is to encourage and coach you so you feel engaged and understand that the sacrifices you are making are worthwhile.
That said, change is not easy and should be fought for!
Life change is the warrior’s path and the way of all who seek to win at life!
We do not offer refunds!
Your coaching package starts whenever you decide!
Once you receive your invitation to download the app you’ll be sent a confirmation code which once activated will start your coaching program.
You can decide when you want your program to start, but once you start you will not be able to tp put the program on hold. That would be pointless so please be aware of any holidays or breaks in your calendar which will make the plan unworkable. We will not issue refunds in the event of bad planning. These plans are designed to be started and followed to their end in one full coaching session. Anything less is not acceptable because life change is a serious business and shouldn’t be put on hold.
