Sunday 19 May: World Inflammatory Bowel Disease Day

Are you suffering from Crohn’s disease?
Do you experience bloating, reflux, diarrhoea, constipation, or abdominal pain?
Do you want to get to the root of your complaints?
Are you seeking sustainable relief?

Gastro-intestinal diseases can roughly be classified as IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) and IBD (inflammatory bowel disease).  The latter condition is an inflammatory disease, however more and more evidence is being discovered that IBS is also a chronic inflammatory disease (at a lower level). Certain types of functional gastro-intestinal disorders may be caused by enzymes deficiencies, or by an impaired gut flora associated with excessive fermentation and intake of carbohydrates, also called FODMAPs.

If these causes have been ruled out, identifying foods that cause a delayed type of food allergy, inducing an inflammatory response, may be helpful in alleviating your symptoms.  Unfortunately, the appearance of symptoms to an IgG mediated immune response can be delayed by up to 72 hours making it impossible to associate a food with a symptom.  Human beings habitually stick to repetitive eating patterns which, while convenient, can potentially lead to serious issues if you are continually eating inflammatory-causing foods. This is how chronic inflammation develops, with the cause often remaining undetermined. The consequence? Gastro-intestinal disorders!


ImuPro can detect which foods are causing chronic inflammation in your body as well as which foods are beneficial and safe to eat in replacement.  This helps you develop your own nutrition plan for sustainable relief.

Several studies show the effectiveness of ImuPro based diets for patients with IBS and IBD. See studies
