The Nourish Method
To Heal Your Gut
Learn how to eat varied and delicious food
without the troublesome consequences
You Feel Like You Can't Eat Anything
You’re doing your best. You’re trying to eat healthy. But somehow, it seems like the healthier you eat the worse your symptoms are.
You think you’re starting to get things under control. If you continue to avoid X, Y & Z you should be fine. But then suddenly, everything flares up again and you feel more confused than ever.
One day you can’t touch a particular food without blowing up like you’re 6 months pregnant, and other times you can get away with it symptom-free.
Ultimately, you’re symptoms flare up at the worst possible time… gatherings, holidays, long car journeys…
After working with hundreds of people desperate to eliminate painful and embarrassing symptoms, this is what I know about you...
You’ve tried cutting out various foods with varying success. Usually symptoms return or things just don’t change at all.
You’ve tried eating healthier; increasing the fruits and vegetables, but this just made you feel worse.
You feel better when you don’t eat at all, and it’s starting to feel like food is the enemy.
You’ve tried medications like buscopan and mebeverine that didn’t help at all. You’ve maybe even tried anti-depressants.
The tests that your doctor completed all came back ‘normal’
You just feel really uncomfortable. You pretty much live in trousers with an elasticated waist. You’re bloated, uncomfortable and most of all fed-up.
It’s draining spending your life watching what you’re eating. Analysing every mouthful. Suffering after every meal. You’ve spent a fortune on supplements or health-foods hoping they’d solve the problem. It didn’t work.
When food is the cause of your discomfort you can’t just take a day off. It’s always there. You’re always watching what you eat. Relaxing the ‘diet’ or over-eating means a night (or more) of major discomfort.
It’s exhausting to keep restricting your diet further and further. Eating out at restaurants or round people’s houses is no fun anymore.
In fact, it’s a complete nightmare.
Hi, I'm Louise
I help men and women who are fed-up and disconnected from their bodies to free themselves from the fear and pain their tummy troubles cause.
I’ll show you how to nourish yourself from within and address the root cause of your problems so that eventually you can enjoy dinner with your friends once again.
My clients are committed to nourishing their bodies from the inside out. They know that simply eliminating food after food is not addressing the underlying problem. They need a step-by-step programme that’s simple to follow and practical for everyday life.
My approach is unique because we’re going to go deeper than simply identifying food intolerance. We’re going to work out what caused the food intolerance or IBS-like symptoms so that we can address that imbalance and get you back to your old self.
The Missing Links
Revelation #1: The tests your doctor did looked for disease only. You can still have imbalances and dysfunction without disease.
There is a long way between absence of disease and optimal health. Scans, colonoscopies, endoscopies and blood tests are looking for major issues. Even the stool tests used are basic. Don’t get me wrong, it’s important to have these tests done, but just because they came back all-clear doesn’t mean that everything is normal! What they don’t test for includes:
Levels of beneficial bacteria
Presence of some bad bacteria
Levels of yeast
Intestinal permeability (leaky gut)
Non-Coeliac Gluten Sensitivity
Stomach acid levels
Digestive enzyme levels
and more! These are all things that when imbalanced, can cause bloating, wind, pain, constipation, diarrhoea, fatigue and food intolerance symptoms.
Revelation #2: IBS is caused by something. It’s not just random food intolerance. There is always a reason why.
The majority of our clients focus on problem foods when they are trying to address their tummy troubles. The biggest mistake they make is that they don’t consider that the food intolerance is caused by an underlying imbalance. Yes, the food is triggering the reaction (although not always) but the problem isn’t the food. The long-term solution isn’t to exclude that food. The problem is the underlying imbalances, such as bacterial overgrowth, yeast overgrowth, lack of beneficial bacteria etc. The long-term solution is to identify the imbalance, correct it AND to heal the damage done.

How will we know what underlying imbalance(s) I have?
We use extensive questionnaires to determine the likely areas of imbalance. We can work from this information alone if budget is limited, however, we do prefer to complete testing so that we can create a more targeted programme for you.
What tests do you use?
There are some simple observational tests that can be completed at little or no cost.
We frequently use comprehensive stool tests and/or SIBO breath tests to assess the gut environment. We also use other tests where appropriate.
These are tests that you complete at home and send to the lab. These test vary in cost and are not included as part of the programme.
Will I have to take supplements?
Yes. The diet is a powerful thing but when there are underlying digestive imbalances, diet alone is rarely enough to correct the problem or diet alone will take a long time to correct the problem.
We use supplements to get quicker results whilst you are changing your dietary and lifestyle habits.
Almost all supplements are intended for short-term use. There are different supplements at each stage of the programme.
Supplements are not included in the programme fee because each individual will require a different prescription.
We’ll check that the recommended supplements are safe to use with you’re current medications and treatments.
