I’ve Cured My IBS, So I Can Cure You!

“I want to share my secret with you…​

I use this system myself and I know it works. It took me a lot of work and experimentation on myself till I’ve found what really works. I’ve bought all products you can possibly imagine, and tried most IBS treatments out there…​

But now I know better, and I want that for you too, and how to really get rid of IBS naturally and without resorting to any medication or specialist treatments. You deserve to. And This is why I have written this step-by-step guide that is guaranteed to cure your IBS forever.” (written by anonymous person… Not me).​

On the face of it, this sounds awesome!

And this is a common story I’ve seen again and again. People who have “cured” themselves of IBS (or [fill in the blank] health condition), who lack any formal or relevant qualifications and training, and now they’re selling products and services to help others with this same condition.

Does this sound like the best person to go to for help?


For me, there are some red flags…​

And I’m going to share these with you, because I care about you and your health and wellbeing. I want the best for you. And as a Dietitian, I want to warn you about the risks you could be taking if you follow strategies by people like I’ve mentioned above.

🚩 “Guaranteed”​

“Guaranteed to cure your IBS forever.”​

That’s a big bold statement. There are no 100% guarantees of success because success depends on you, like how committed and coachable you are.​ And how your body reacts.

🚩 “Cure”​

There is no cure for IBS. And if there was, there wouldn’t be so many people suffering with this horrible, debilitating condition that can rock up out of the blue, right at the wrong moment, leaving you feeling embarrassed, annoyed, and like your body has let you down.​

“I use this system myself and I know it works. It took me a lot of work and experimentation on myself till I’ve found what really works.”​

“…A lot of work and experimentation…” sounds like random trial and error, a scattergun approach, rather than a structured process to get to the desired results.​

🚩 And just because something works for them
… It doesn’t mean it will work on everyone else for many reasons.

For example, what type of IBS do they have, and what type do you have? If say, unbeknownst to you, they suffer with constipation, but you suffer with diarrhoea and you follow their strategy, then it’s not going to work. It will make your condition worse. ​

​Also, is their strategy solely based on their own personal experience of suffering with IBS? Or is it actually based on scientific evidence that’s shown benefit in thousands and thousands of people?

👉 Just because something works for them
… It doesn’t mean it’s safe for them or anyone else for that matter, like not eating for days, or weeks, causes weight loss but starvation isn’t a healthy strategy!​

👉 Just because something works for them
… It doesn’t mean it’s appropriate for you to use, because you’re a totally different person to them with your own personal set of conditions, traits, tolerances, preferences, needs.​

And, are they actually able to provide advice and recommendations for managing conditions such as IBS? As in have they undergone formal and appropriate training in clinical nutrition? And do they have experience in gut conditions? ​Because all this adds up to the what chance of success you have and what risk you might be taking.

We all know there are loads of people out there offering help, giving out advice, selling various products, but it’s about being savvy for where you go to for help. And if someone has tons of followers and likes on socials doesn’t mean what they’re saying or promoting is correct, helpful or appropriate for you.

Sharing is caring?

People sharing their story of how they struggled and suffered with IBS, then they stumbled upon such and such product or remedy or cobbled together a strategy that worked for them, and they’re now selling it to you.

This gives me NO confidence they truly know what they’re doing. Meddling with people’s diet, health and medical conditions is dodgy.

If you went to someone who lacked formal qualifications and experience, but also has IBS. And you told them all about your symptoms and they said they’ve managed to rustle up some sort of treatment… Would you take it? ​

What about if you went to your doctor asking for help with your symptoms, and they said, “Hang on, I’m just going to jump inside a Facebook group to ask what they suggest” How would you feel? You’d walk out (physically or virtually) and never return. So why do people do these kinds of things all the time for themselves?​

If it was a loved one wanting to see someone like this, you’d talk them out of it. I know I would. So why is it ok to do it to ourselves.

These people who’ve managed to sort themselves out might have a good heart and mean well. And they MIGHT have a few nuggets of gold that MIGHT help, but there’s a greater chance it won’t work. And that they’ll do more harm than good because they don’t know the intricacies and finer details of the condition, the workings of the body, nutrition, medicine, lifestyle factors, etc., and how they all play a part.​​

Look, I can appreciate why people would turn to those who have supposedly “cured” themselves, because it supposedly shows it “works” (for them). And they can relate to you.

But you don’t have to take a chance and go down that road. Don’t you deserve better?

You can bypass all that nonsense and potential harm from taking a chance on using an “ex-sufferer” who claims they can help.

Instead, you can save yourself from wasting time and money; risking your health, wellbeing, and fitness; and avoid the hassle, stress, and pitfalls of trying things that have little or no chance of working by watching my game plan of how to finally take control of your IBS.
