Our founder, Sophie Ash, originally worked as a Dietitian in the UK. Just as her patients saw limited improvements in their symptoms, Sophie’s personal struggle with IBS made her realize that medicine doesn’t have all the answers. After working as a Research Analyst to make sure she had exhausted all clinical options to manage her IBS, Sophie studied Nutritional Therapy and began working more holistically with clients.
Although this offered some relief, Sophie struggled with low self-esteem and was unable to implement her Nutritional Therapy knowledge consistently. Sophie worked with a Life Coach and completely transformed her mindset around IBS and life in general. Finally, Sophie was able to carry out Nutritional Therapy self-care practices every day, manage her IBS, and start living life to the full. And, she still is!
We know from experience that dietary changes won’t do any good if you’re stressed or anxious. Likewise, a great mindset won’t help unless you identify the root cause of your IBS. That’s why we created our Integrative Gut Therapy program! It’s the only remote program in Canada that teaches Nutritional Therapy alongside mindset transformation for IBS – the perfect balance of clinical and emotional support.
A HOLISTIC APPROACH
We've combined the clinical and emotional aspects of IBS into one integrated program.
