Do you think you've got a digestive issue?
We can address your concerns.

IBS is increasingly common and always unpleasant. You will frequently feel gut discomfort and pain, and diarrhoea or constipation are often part of the problem too. It can also be a long-term condition that can blight everyday activities. We are here to help.

As specialists in IBS care we will be your partner in care, taking the time to understand your health concerns. This means identifying the reasons for your health issues. The causes behind the symptoms. We will also help you put in place a comprehensive programme that modifies your diet and lifestyle.  Our role extends to supporting you through the process, reviewing and adapting the programme if needed.

We are frequently asked these questions:

Gas and bloating don't just happen. They are symptoms of underlying problems in your gut health. Sometimes caused by stress, poor diet or medication.

 

These conditions can lead to feelings of isolation and embarrassment.

 

Your gut health is dependent on many different factors. Our home test will help you determine what's going on and put together a game plan to help relieve you of this problem through diet changes, lifestyle tweaks and the right supplements for your unique situation.

SIBO Test

Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) is an inflammatory condition of the small intestine. It's a common complaint and easy to test for. As with all our tests, we've selected our SIBO test to help you understand your body better. We're confident that your test results will provide you with valuable information about your gut health.

 

Why take a SIBO test?

 

If you are experiencing bloating, gas, nausea, vomiting, cramping, fatigue, and diarrhoea, these are typical symptoms of SIBO. You may also be having a loss of appetite, and weight loss or low-grade fever, malaise, and sometimes joint inflammation.

 

We recommend an easy non-invasive method to diagnose SIBO, the lactulose hydrogen breath test. To take this SIBO test you breathe into a balloon to measure the baseline level of hydrogen in the breath. Then consume a small amount of lactose and you measure the quantity of gases produced at 20-minute intervals for three hours. A raised level of hydrogen and methane in the first 90 minutes after consuming lactulose indicates excessive bacterial fermentation and is indicative of SIBO.

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a very common but not openly discussed health condition. Yet it can impact all areas of a sufferer's life, and affect their ability to work.

 

Because the disorder is gut and digestion related, and some symptoms are considered hard to acknowledge and talk about, IBS can be embarrassing. Lacking a specific pathology, or a certain cause makes it is also an elusive subject.

 

Indeed one person's experience of IBS is rarely the same as another's.  Typically though sufferers feel chronic abdominal pain, bloating and have unpredictable bowel movements. Constipation and diarrhoea vary, with anxiety and depression accompanying them. In summary then, IBS can be both a long term and a disruptive condition that can affect people's working lives.

 

The Equality Act of 2010 states that an impairment doesn't have to be a diagnosed medical condition.  A physical impairment is where something is having a substantial and long-term adverse effect on your ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities.

 

This impairment "doesn't have to stop you doing anything, as long as it makes it harder. It might cause you pain, make things take much longer than they should or mean that you're unable to do an activity more than once." Citizens Advice Bureau 

 

So IBS can clearly be classed as a disability. As specialists in treating IBS we can help you address and resolve it. The best place to start is with a call to talk things through.

What our customers say

drawing representing testimonials
“In all my visits to doctors and specialists while living in London, you were the only healthcare professional that took my situation seriously. Your diligent attention, along with the nutritional and supplement guidance, helped strengthen my system such that when I finally got a diagnosis (cancer, unfortunately), my body was primed to fight and I was able to recover from treatment remarkably well.”

Deborah, I was told my strong recovery was a direct result of my vitality and general health...
Maria
Financial Adviser
“Hi Tracey, I thought I would give you an update on how things are going. I have been on the SCD diet and following it very strictly for 12 days and I am really happy to say that my symptoms have gone! I can’t believe it. I am feeling so much better already. I have more energy and I actually have had in ages. You are the only person in the past 10 years to be able to help me, I am so pleased that I found you.”

Steve
Interior Designer
“Since my health deteriorated in 2014 Tracey has been the key practitioner where your guidance has actually resulted in recovery of underlying issues and symptoms I was struggling with for 3+ years , where others only looked to suppress symptoms instead of resolve root cause, were doubtful of full recovery and provided allopathic medication which only provided short term relief and in most cases made my condition worse.You both take considerable amount of time to review test results/ understand underlying issues to provide the best guidance and are very empathetic, again which I have rarely seen within my 8+ years of healthcare experience. So a great big thank you for your consistent help and guidance towards my recovery.”

About the IBS Clinics team. Specialists in IBS care.

drawing for teamwork

Tracey Randell formed IBS Clinics to be specialists in IBS care. Tracey studied clinical nutrition at BCNH College of Nutrition and Health. Dealing with her own IBS and weight issues was the catalyst to initially study nutrition for Tracey. Both issues resolved during her studies, and she discovered a passion for nutrition and a strong desire to help other people to get well, resulting in her later qualifying as a Nutritionist.  (Tracey is now a lecturer at BCNH).

Today IBS Clinics are a team of leading digestive health specialists. We offer the highest standards of professional, evidence-based treatments and programmes. Our clear focus on you and your needs is always delivered with empathic support.

Tracey's knowledge is better than all the GPs and consultants I have ever known. Her expertise is second to none.

Patient seen for: Microscopic Colitis
Read More
I was diagnosed with microscopic colitis and the NHS recommended treatment was long term steroids. I was keen to avoid the sterioids and worked with a local kinesiologist to try an alternative approach, but she recognised that my case was quite complex and so referred me to Tracey. Tracey carried out a series of tests which identified that a parasite was at the root of all my symptoms. She was very understanding and explained everything very clearly. Tracey was also open to working alongside my kinesiologist and with some changes to my diet and a variety of natural supplements my gut is now back to normal. I cannot thank Tracey enough for giving me my health back, with the added bonus that I don't have to plan life around where the nearest toilet will be.

Tracey is amazingly supportive and always asks the right questions to get to the heart of the matter. I find the scientific tests that she suggest really help to shed light on any issues. Tracey is so good at analysing the results and explaining the pertinent points, and the action neccessary as a result.

Thank you so much to Tracy for listening and helping to make sense of a very complicated situation. For all your knowledge, understanding and expertise and insight into something I have been struggling with for so long. Your explanations were extremely clear with thorough knowledge of the pre-appointment information I had sent you. The diet advice was extremely helpful and your suggestions of tests to pursue all made absolute sense. I am so grateful to you for sorting out the missing pieces in the health jigsaw I have been trying to solve. Thank you

Tracey is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. She identified very quickly a number of areas for treatment and I have seen measurable benefits in a relatively short time frame. I look forward to continuing to work with her and improve my health.

Patient seen for: Acid Reflux

I came to Tracey complaining of acid reflux - over a period of months she correctly diagnosed and prescribed me supplements & advised me of dietary changes to make that effectively treated my SIBO & restored my gut to full health. I’ve never felt better. Tracey is extremely knowledgable and professional and I couldn’t recommend her more highly.
