We have all learnt to adapt to doing business remotely after COVID-19, so the below is also available on Zoom.
What is the Digestive Issues Programme?
This is for people who want more long-term support for their digestive issue. I have seen clients with IBS, Crohn's disease, diverticulitis, hiatus hernia, lactose intolerance, coeliac disease and general bloating to name a few.
How does it work?
Once a month for 6 months we will either meet at the Broadstone Clinic or on zoom. We will discuss your progress, answer any questions you have and talk about one of the below topics. The topics are only suggestions and the programme is client led. At the end of the conversation, we will set new goals for the month. Seeing me once a month will encourage accountability.
How much does it cost?
One hour face to face or zoom call per month for 6 months, plus email access to me during the month, costs £360.00 (works out to £60 per month).
I, of all people know how important it is to consult your GP when your symptoms are just not normal for you. It was a battle to get my Crohn's disease diagnosis but I my gut feeling (pardon the pun) was that something was not right. I highly recommend seeing your GP before seeing me.

He also highlights 5 symptoms, which mean you should see a doctor straight away.
These symptoms may be a warning of a serious digestive illness:
