What causes IBS and how do you fix it?
Around 10 to 15% of people experience the unpleasant symptoms of IBS at some time in their lives. In fact, it is the most common gastrointestinal disorder. Given its prevalence, IBS is surprisingly misunderstood with traditional medicine offering little by way of effective treatment.
But research has now shown us that people suffer IBS and chronic gut problems because of an imbalance in the microbiome, which is the name given to the trillions of micro-organisms - mainly bacteria - that live in the gut.
An overgrowth of bad bacteria is called dysbiosis and causes irritable bowel syndrome symptoms like weight gain, fatigue, low mood, brain fog and many other issues.
These bacteria produce toxins that inhibit proper digestion of food, irritate the gut nervous system, and disrupt normal bowel movements. They can even cause sweet food cravings, weight gain, low mood, brain fog, skin rashes and fatigue.
If we rebalance the microbiome by replacing the bad bacteria with good healthy bacteria, the symptoms of IBS can be significantly improved.
A healthy balance of good bacteria called probiotics make a multitude of nutrients that improve digestion of food, calm the gut nervous system, and restore normal bowel movements. They can also reduce sweet food cravings, control body weight, improve mood, clear the head, clear skin and boost energy.
Our 28-Day Program can take you through the necessary steps to rebalance your gut microbiome and reclaim your life!
An effective plan for IBS
Our 28-Day Program is made up of a specific combination of diet, supplements, probiotics and prebiotics that when combined together provide effective relief of the symptoms of IBS. It is broken into two phases.
For your convenience, the supplements have been pre-packed into Webster Packs in correct doses.
Phase 1 (Days 1-14)
This phase cleanses away the bad bacteria and the biofilms that protect them with a course of natural cleansing supplements and easy-to-follow dietary advice. These bacteria make many toxins that interfere with digestion, bowel function and irritate the gut nerves.
Phase 1 includes:
- Natural Dysbiosis Cleansing Supplements
- Natural Biofilm Cleansing Supplements
- Natural Gut Immune Boosting Supplements
- 1 x cannister of Immunity Tea
- Phase 1 – Cleansing Low FODMAP Diet
Phase 2 (Days 15-28)
In Phase 2, we reload the gut with good healthy bacteria through a regime of natural probiotic and prebiotic supplements and our Gut Reload Diet. These bacteria make a multitude of nutrients that improve digestion, calm the gut nervous system and restore normal bowel movements.
Phase 2 includes:
- Natural Prebiotic Supplements to restore bowel function
- Natural Probiotic Supplements to restore healthy gut bacteria
- Natural Nutraceuticals to repair the gut lining
- 1 x cannister of Detox Tea
- 1 x tin of Organic Chicken Bone Broth – Garden Herb
- Phase 2 - Gut Reload Probiotic Diet.
Once you’ve completed the program and restored the proper balance of your gut, it’s important to maintain it. We do this in Phase 3. Find out More

The effects of bad bacteria
Bad dysbiotic bacteria stops production of all the good nutrients listed here. They also make toxins like LPS, ETX, aldeh, lactate, amine and H2S which causes the intestinal barrier to become ‘too permeable’ also known as Leaky Gut and triggers inflammation.
This causes IBS symptoms like:
- Abdominal pain
- Low mood
- Brain fog
- Skin rashes
- Joint pains
- Sweet food cravings
- Weight gain
These toxins also:
- Inhibit proper digestion of food
- Irritate the gut nervous system
- Disrupt the normal bowel movements.
How to stay healthy after the program
Once you’ve completed the program and restored the proper balance of your gut, it’s important to maintain it and your general health with daily supplements and the correct diet. The maintenance program is all about making a lifestyle change that’s essential for ongoing success. If you don’t follow it, you will go backwards, and your symptoms may return.
With 2 programs to choose from, you can choose the one that suits you. Each pack gives you 30 days’ worth of supplements.
You need phase 3 to maintain the benefit of a healthy gut microbiome. Without the maintenance, many people go backwards. Probiotics don’t live in the gut forever; they disappear within 2 weeks of stopping them. So only through regular supplementation can you keep your gut healthy and functioning properly.
The IBS Doctor program has been developed by Consultant Physician and Gastroenterologist Dr Paul Froomes. For over 30 years he has specialised in diagnosing and managing disorders related to imbalances in the microbial structure of the gut microbiome.
Doing the program is easy. Take the supplements each morning and evening before meals as directed and follow the dietary advice. You don’t need a referral from your GP to do the IBS Doctor program, but we encourage you to discuss it with them.
All supplements used in the IBS Doctor program are 100% natural and approved by the TGA. They are packed by a certified compounding pharmacy.
