“I have been fortunate to be referred to Diane Stride by my doctor, Blaine Stride (Diane’s husband).

For some ten years I have suffered from pain and tension in both the abdomen and stomach.  During this period I have had four colonoscopy’s and many ultrasounds.  The pain has never been constant, or consistently in the same place,  “a moveable feast” I describe it as.   It has not disturbed my sleep and most days I have woken pain free with the tension creeping on as the day has progressed.  My bowel movements have been quite erratic.

For two months now I have been guided by Diane and her program known as “Foodmaps”. This has had a huge effect on my health.  My husband will bear testament to the new me.  I have had several comments observing the brightness in my eyes and can honestly say the improvement to my discomfort has been immense.

Over the past month I have slowly introduced some of those foods that have been removed, taking note of any side effects.  I have kept a diary of my food and bowel movements.

Diane has been most professional in her approach to my complaint.  She has a great knowledge of food groups and their effect on Irritable bowel.  She has been very easy to talk to, a great listener supporting her suggestions with good explanations.

I continue to be guided by Diane and have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone looking to address their health and well being through dietary intake.”

Mum grateful to finally see her son free of stomach pain!

For several years my son has suffered with abdominal/stomach pains, for which we have visited numerous GPs with no success. We were referred to Diane who has helped us to identify food intolerance’s through a process of removing and re-introducing different food groups

For several years my son has suffered with abdominal/stomach pains, for which we have visited numerous GPs with no success.

We were referred to Diane who has helped us to identify food intolerance’s through a process of removing and re-introducing different food groups. By identifying these food intolerance’s he now has no stomach pains and we are aware of which foods he has trouble digesting.  It is a relief as a parent to see him happy and free from pain.

We are very grateful to Diane for her professional yet kind guidance, and would highly recommend her to anyone suffering in the same manner.
