Correct nutrition can reverse IBS, decrease digestive issues & achieve a holistic healthy lifestyle.


Name: Divyanka

Age: 43 years

Location: Calcutta, India

Case History:

Divyanka has been on various medications for the past 20 years because of multiple illnesses. She had IBS with severe flatulence, bloating, hyperacidity, constipation and irregular bowel movements. These conditions made her washroom cycles very unpredictable and the excessive flatulence resulted in limited movements outside of the home. Over a period of time, she was also diagnosed with hypothyroidism, diabetes, high cholesterol, high triglycerides and schizophrenia. Her HbA1c level was 6% with medications. Her blood reports showed a high TG level of 166mg/dl.

Approach by the best dietitian, Hyderabad, Telangana, India:

At first, Deepika and other senior nutritionists worked on her gut health and eliminated all the triggering foods. Simple carbohydrates like roti, bread, and dhals which were triggering food were replaced by light, watery, easy-to-digest vegetables like gourds, carrots, beans, etc. along with light and complete proteins like tofu. All the foods were included in her meal plan according to IBS FODMAP. Adequate micronutrients, fiber-rich foods and supplements were given which, helped her resolve her nutritional deficiencies and gut health. As her metabolism and digestion process were slow, lean vegan protein and other foods were included gradually and mindfully in her diet in order to improve her gut health. We gradually incorporated foods from the red list of FODMAP in small quantities, one at a time to check her tolerance levels. Supplements like vit b 12, vit d, were included as she was found deficient in them. Spirulina and aloe juice were incorporated to strengthen her gut health. TRE as a method of consumption of food with adequate water at the appropriate time was incorporated to rejuvenate gut health. Slowly and steadily she was able to incorporate brisk walking and increase her steps to 9000 a day which, was earlier a couple of thousand steps as she used to feel weak and tired. She was able to get back to meditation and yoga in her lifestyle to support her mental health as she became less edgy with consistent energy throughout the day. Constant support, guidance and counselling were provided. We were constantly in touch with her to give her motivation and to make modifications according to her needs and body type.


Significant improvement in her gut health was seen. Flatulence was reduced by 60% in the first 3 weeks of her following the program and by end of 3 months, it has reduced by 90%. She was able to consume and digest food like dairy and protein without any discomfort. She was able to enjoy her favourite meals and travel comfortably for the first time in 19 years. Her triglycerides and HbA1c levels came down to 103mg/dl and 5.6% respectively. Her washroom cycles and bowel movements improved. Her energy levels, concentration, and mental health were improved.
