Is your stomach acid too low?!

It shouldn’t have surprised me as much as it did…   It’s not the first time someone has said it and unfortunately it won’t be the last.   I was midway through a consult with somebody and she interrupted me and said “I’m sorry, I’m going to have to disagree with you there.  In fact…

Should you be gluten free if suffering with IBD?

I’ll always remember the first time I got ‘trolled’…   It was nothing major.  I’d written an innocent, helpful article on Moobs (man boobs), why you get them and how to lose them.  However, for some reason, a guy (who I suspect may have been carrying around a set of moobs himself) decided to send…

IBD Diet

Does Diet Play a Part in IBD?

I got a question on FB the other day   I say “question” but I suspect it was more someone looking for an argument   I didn’t bite though   The “question” was…   “Greg, colitis is not effected by food, it’s to do with the over reaction of the bodies immune system…What do you…

Have you had enough?

Donna and I went to watch ‘The Imitation Game’ the other day at the cinema   Have you seen it?   REALLY good film!   What a story…   (frightening to think that just a relatively short time ago they were basically chemically castrating people for being gay)   Anyway…   One of the trailers…
