Autoimmunity

Are you frustrated with your medical team and their lack of solutions?

Do you feel like a crazy pill popper from taking so many supplements?

Are you beginning to wonder if you’ll ever be free of IBS?

You deserve to work with someone who knows IBS inside and out.

Common IBS Symptoms
  • Diarrhea

  • Constipation

  • (Possibly both diarrhea and constipation)

  • Abdominal/stomach bloating

  • Abdominal/stomach pain

  • Abdominal cramping

  • Nausea

  • Indigestion

You may have all of these symptoms or only a few.

Common causes of IBS

  • Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)

  • Food Poisoning (“Post-Infectious IBS”)​

  • Leaky gut syndrome

  • Dysbiosis

  • Food sensitivities (gluten, dairy, soy)

  • Inflammation of the intestines

Usually, people have more than one thing from this list, as some of them cause the other (SIBO causing intestinal inflammation and leaky gut, for example).

Diet and IBS

I rarely recommend the most popular IBS diets. All of the following diets can be used to manage IBS symptoms, but should not be used for more than a couple of weeks.

Diets that can help IBS (and that I have worked with) include:

  • Low FODMAP diet

  • Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD)

  • The Bi-phasic Diet

  • Combination FODMAP/SCD (recommended by Allison Siebecker, ND)

Curing and Helping IBS

IBS often responds very well to dietary changes, herbal medicine, supplements, vitamins, and life coaching. I feel very lucky to be able to help people with this condition every day at my office in Chapel Hill.

Over the last ten years, I have had the pleasure of helping hundreds of people defeat IBS and SIBO.

Take a look at “Causes of IBS Revealed” youtube series. 

I have also had the privilege of being interviewed for the IBS and SIBO SOS Summit in 2018.

Oh, ps. It was my own struggle with IBS that motivated me to study functional medicine

I literally searched the world over (internet, LOL) and found Dr. DiNezza’s website. She is a well-rounded health care professional who is experienced in treating Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis so I drove 2.5 hours to see her for my first visit. She has been able to pinpoint the trigger that had stalled my healing process, and I am now on the right healing path. I am very thankful for her thoughtful and considerate care, and I really appreciate all that she has done to help me. 😊

I have struggled for years with stomach issues and autoimmune issues. Doctor after doctor and no one really listened until I met Dr. DiNezza. She is caring and understanding and really knows her stuff! In a short time I am feeling like I am on the right road and have my life back again, I could not recommend her more!

I absolutely refuse to go anywhere else! If not for Dr. DiNezza, I would be nearly (or completely) blind right now but instead, my eyes are healed and better than ever. She’s found food allergies, problems no doctor ever thought to check, and a host of other amazing things. If “traditional” doctors have failed you, make an appointment. NOW.

Dr. D changed my life! I had struggled for years with food issues with no answers from multiple doctors (despite surgeries and medications). Dr D. has the most thorough intake process I’ve ever seen and she said in our first meeting that we would keep pushing together until we had answers and solutions. Thanks to her knowledge and expertise, I feel better than I have in years and know that I have someone to support me long-term with my autoimmune and GI issues.
