    IBS Chat Episode 9: My guest is mindfulness-based psychologist Jennifer Franklin Ph.D. who created DontHateYourGuts.com to help patients to be inspired to seek healing

    Shifting from “having IBS” to “have had IBS” is the goal of Dr. Jennifer Franklin (Ph.D., MACP).In this podcast, Dr. Jennifer Franklin (Ph.D., MACP) and I spoke about her unique perspective on how therapy can help people with functional GI disorders. Relationship healing plays a large role in dealing with IBS and this is often something that is addressed by therapy. The relationship that you have with your IBS is something that is worth exploring and as Dr. Franklin (Ph.D., MACP) refers to, as “shifting your patterns”. Dr. Franklin wants patients to feel hopeful and she created the website DontHateYourGuts.com to help patients to be inspired to seek healing and not just symptom management.Dr. Franklin (Ph.D., MACP) offers psychotherapy for individuals, couples and families that she sees on a regular basis as well new patients that she might see for an individual consultation. She is currently working on a webinar series and is involved in writing a book as well as some YouTube videos.Find Jeffrey Roberts and IBS Patient Support Group at:Website: https://www.ibspatient.orgFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/ibspatientTwitter: https://twitter.com/ibspatientInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/ibspatientPinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/ibspatient Music:Werq Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 Licensehttp://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/

    IBS Chat Episode 8: Gut Feelings: Using the mind to treat the body in IBS with my guest Jeffrey Lackner PsyD

    IBS Chat Episode 8: Gut Feelings: Using the mind to treat the body in IBS with my guest Jeffrey Lackner PsyD

    We need to use our heads to be able to learn different strategies to manage problems where medications and dietary changes fall short with IBS.In this podcast, Dr. Jeffrey Lackner (PsyD) and I spoke at Digestive Disease Week in San Diego about Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or CBT and its role as a validated treatment option for IBS patients. CBT is no longer just for anxious or stressed patients. Rather, positive physical changes are occurring in the gut related to abdominal pain and stool regularities. CBT is now a legitimate treatment option, like diet or medication to manage patient's IBS symptoms thanks in part to Dr. Lackner's research and work.Jeffrey Lackner (PsyD) is an internationally recognized authority on the behavioral treatment of chronic pain disorders, especially Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). He has influenced doctors and therapists guidelines worldwide. He is a Professor of Medicine and Chief of the Division of Behavioral Medicine, Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the University at Buffalo.Find Jeffrey Roberts and IBS Patient Support Group at:Website: https://www.ibspatient.orgFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/ibspatientTwitter: https://twitter.com/ibspatientInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/ibspatientPinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/ibspatient Music:Werq Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 Licensehttp://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/

    IBS Chat Episode 7: FoodMarble's AIRE, the portable breath test device to help you find the foods that agree with your digestive system

    IBS Chat Episode 7: FoodMarble's AIRE, the portable breath test device to help you find the foods that agree with your digestive system

    FoodMarble's AIRE is the first portable breath test device that can measure gases which might help to identify which foods you are not absorbing and producing excess gases and which are causing your IBS-like symptoms.Breath tests are used to detect gases which are produced by bacterial fermentation and are then passed through your breath. Excess hydrogen or methane breath gases can lead to a diagnosis of malabsorption, Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrown (SIBO) or can be a key tigger of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)-like symptoms including diarrhea, constipation gas and bloating. The low FODMAP diet is an evidenced based diet for IBS to help you determine which foods might be your triggers. Breath tests might be useful as a way to determine which foods are safe and FoodMarble's AIRE portable breath device makes doing this simple. More information and details about how to order the AIRE breath device are available on the FoodMarble website, https://www.FoodMarble.com. See what's in the box when we unbox'ed it, https://bit.ly/2XzpA4S.Aonghus Shortt,PhD Co-Founder & CEO, and Claire Shortt,PhD Chief Scientist from FoodMarble were my guests while at Digestive Disease Week in San Diego. They explained what was the purpose in creating the AIRE breath test device, how does it work and how this might benefit an IBS sufferer especially when it comes to analyzing foods in a low FODMAP diet.Find Jeffrey Roberts and IBS Patient Support Group at:Website: https://www.ibspatient.orgFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/ibspatientTwitter: https://twitter.com/ibspatientInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/ibspatientPinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/ibspatient Music:Werq Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 Licensehttp://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/

We know that there is evidence in some adult patients that a low FODMAP diet will improve their IBS symptoms, but what about children? One study showed an improvement in the quality of life of the children, but the main challenge was keeping the children on the study. All the families recommend the diet despite the challenges.

    Matt Mitcho is the Founder and CEO of Gemelli Biotech the creators of ibs-smart™️ which is a second generation blood test for IBS. Matt and I met at Digestive Disease Week in San Diego to talk about the ibs-smart™️ blood test and who might benefit from it as well as the process for accessing the test and getting your results within 48-hours. The test offers physicians a way to diagnose diarrhea predominant and mixed-type Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS-D and IBS-M) by looking for two antibodies, anti-CdtB and anti-vinculin, which are elevated in the blood of IBS-D and IBS-M patients following a bout of food poisoning.
