We are the longest established IBS Clinic based in London and in the UK. Our IBS specialists provide IBS tests and consultations.
We are proud to have been featured in The Guardian. We are one of the longest established IBS clinics in London and our IBS specialists have helped patients in the UK with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. We were one of the pioneers in using stool tests and SIBO tests and Candida tests and have a wealth of experience in the field of functional medicine.
Our IBS specialists work in London and can provide online consultations all over the UK and abroad.
If you are looking for a clinic that offers solutions to digestive symptoms please do get in touch. We work with symptoms such as pain, diarrhea, onstipation or bloating, brain fog, nausea, wind and belching.
Most of the people we see at our IBS clinic, have already been to the NHS and had a diagnosis of Irritable bowel syndrome. This is what we call a dustbin diagnosis!
Most of them tell us they are highly dissatisfied with the outcome and have not seen any improvement in their symptoms.
Often, they are told by their GPs that there is nothing else that can be done for them and are palmed off with a prescription,
Unfortunately, many patients continue to experience, painful and troublesome IBS symptoms, including bloating, diarrhea, pain, constipation or brain fog and fatigue.
Typically the NHS will offer antispasmodics such as Mebeverine, or fybogel, Peppermint capsules and sometimes antidepressants.
Sadly this approach rarely appears to work. If dietary advice is given, a very complicated Low-Fodmap diet seems to be the only advice offered.
We were established 23 years ago and have a wealth of clinical experience working with thousands of patients all over the UK and worldwide.
We have been one of the leaders in the field of digestive disorders and were featured in the Guardian and have won awards with CAM.
We will take the time to fully understand possible causes and triggers of your symptoms.
You will be able to speak to your practioner for one hour in depth about your symptoms and ask questions. This is paramount to the healing process and will ensure the best outcomes.
Here is a list of some of the areas that we explore at our clinic when looking for possible causes to IBS:
Sometimes only one is to blame. In many cases, 2, 3 or even 4 of these causes are all present in the same person. Unfortunately, people seldom look at more than one. That's analogous to having four nails in your shoe. If you only get rid of one of them it will still hurt to walk!
The CSA- Comprehensive Stool Analysis test looks at the first three of these potential causes and it does it brilliantly. It pinpoints things that are wrong that never seem to be discovered by NHS tests. Then the appropriate treatment can be started.
A separate test is needed for food intolerances. Once food intolerances have been pin-pointed - and they vary from patient to patient - we work with the patient to find absolutely the right individual diet for them, avoiding the foods identified in the tests, and substituting others that will provide the utmost nutritional benefits but avoid provoking any symptoms. Improvements in health can be very quick.
We were fortunate enough to come runner-up in the CAM Awards 2009 for Outstanding Practice. We have been trying hard to maintain this standard ever since, and have worked hard to provide our patients with the best possible cutting-edge help, advice and information.

Our IBS Treatment Clinic is an online clinic based in central London, next to Harley Street, but we can also help people all over the UK and International clients by means of Zoom, Skype /telephone consultations once they have filled in the questionnaires that we use. We see patients in the UK in London and all over the UK and Europe and internationally.
The first consultation is one hour in length. During this time, we will ask you detailed questions about your symptoms and health so we can try to narrow down possible causes of your specific symptoms.
Are they due to small intestinal bacterial overgrowth? Food Intolerances? A fungal infection? Parasites? Stress? Lactose intolerance? Carbohydrate malabsorption?
During the consultation, you will have our complete focus and undivided attention.
You will be able to discuss any issues in a confidential manner and explore different avenues to the NHS.
What type of IBS testing do you offer at your clinic?
The main tests that we use to identify possible causes of IBS include:
This test will identify if you have an overgrowth of bacteria in the small intestine. This condition is extremely common in patients with IBS and can include symptoms of bloating, wind, flatulence as well as constipation or diarrhea. If this sounds like you, please do look at our page on 'SIBO Testing'.
Many of our clients symptoms can be linked to the foods that there are eating. We often use elimination diets to help them unravel the common offenders. We do this in conjunction with IGg blood test that looks at food intolerances. This can be very helpful as a guide to understand what foods are causing bloating pain constipation or diarrhea and other symptoms.
We offer Comprehensive Parasite tests and Stool Analysis Tests to detect parasitic infections inflammation, viruses, bacteria, digestive function, occult blood and white blood cells. Please have a look at our pages on 'Parasites'.
Candida may also be linked with brain fog, fatigue, fermentation, bloating as well as constipation and diarrhea. The main causes of a yeast overgrowth are linked to antibiotic use as well as diets high in sugar and yeast (marmite, bread, alcohol). If this sounds like you please look at our page on 'Candida Testing'.
We can use stool urine or blood tests to test fungal and yeast overgrowth. The best test will depend very much on your specific case and we will give you professional advice. As regards treatment for Candida, we will also recommend anti-fungal supplements as well as dietary changes.
This is an excellent, easy to use test to detect yeast (candida) as well as bacterial overgrowth in your urine.
We offer the most innovative and sophisticated IBS tests including PCR tests, GI MAP test, GI effects and G1360 as well as Helicobacter testing. These are quite different to tests offered on the NHS. For more information please see our 'Gut Bacteria Test' page.
How do I know what test to choose for IBS?
Please call us if you have any questions on 0345 1297996. Different tests are suited to different symptoms therefore we generally recommend booking in a consultation with an IBS specialist. This way we can learn more about your symptoms and give you the best possible professional advice.
There are several diets we use for patients with irritable Bowel syndrome including:
Of course every case is different, so we will tailor the best diet for you based on your individual symptoms and medical history.
There’s no one-size-fits-all diet! These diets can often be challenging to adhere to on your own so we will ensure you have an easy guide to follow.
Our IBS specialists always look at the many possible root causes of IBS - we have found that for many patients there can more than one cause.
For example we often find that patients who have small intestinal bacterial overgrowth may also have underlying food intolerances as well as a fungal overgrowth!
We have been helping people with their health since 1999 when Michael Franklin established the IBS and Gut Disorder Centre.
Sadly Michael Franklin passed away in 2014 but Victoria Tyler is the IBS specialist that continues to sees patients with IBS and digestive problems at her IBS clinic in central London.
Our practice was runner-up in the 2009 CAM Awards for Outstanding Practice.
What we do is look at the possible root causes of IBS as this may be a better way to help those suffering irritable bowel syndrome and truly understand what is causing your symptoms.
Please take a look through the 'The causes of IBS' and success stories appearing on this website. They all contain details of cases from our IBS Clinic and Gut disorder Centre and mention some of the IBS treatments we use.
We particularly help people suffering from Candida, SIBO, and Yeast overgrowth as well unusual bacteria such as Klebsiella and Citrobacter freundii, from parasites such as Blastocystis hominis and Dientamoeba fragilis, and from yeast overgrowth such as Candida albicans and Geotrichum. We often use the 'CSA- Comprehensive Stool Analysis' (Comprehensive Stool Analysis Test and Comprehensive Parasitology Tests ) PCR tests to help us identify the most effective treatment of IBS and associated conditions. These tests are a huge breakthrough in IBS treatment.
We are the longest established and leading IBS treatment Clinic and Candida Clinic in London.
