Food intolerance can significantly affect quality of life, yet many people don't connect their symptoms to the food they eat.

Conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome, migraines, sleep problems, rashes, stomach aches, diarrhoea, constipation, mouth ulcers and hyperactive behaviour in children are related to diet in many people. 

Symptoms in babies can include colic, gastro-oesophageal reflux and rashes. Some sensitive babies who are breastfed can have problems as a result of what their mothers are eating.

Consultations focus on the individual. Each mother/baby pair with food-related symptoms is different, so special diets excluding large numbers of foods are not the best that you can do for yourself and your baby. The aim is to find the least restricted diet. This way you can enjoy lots of normal foods and avoid only those that cause problems.

Joy also provides dietary guidance for mothers' nutrition. Click here to see an article written by Joy on diet and weight loss while breastfeeding.
