This webinar will explore the role of the low FODMAP diet in the management of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and the place of other adjunct therapies such as gut directed hypnotherapy, probiotic supplementation, fibre modification and A2 beta-casein.


Our webinar objectives are: 
1. Improve knowledge and understanding of the practical application of a low FODMAP diet, from the elimination phase to the challenge phase.
2. Understand the roles of other adjunct therapies that may be used in conjunction or instead of a low FODMAP to improve treatment response.
