“Low-FODMAP is not a new treatment, but we are now convinced that it really works.”—Shanti Eswaran, MD

If the quotation above is any indication, mainstream medicine is catching on to what nutritionists and functional medicine practitioners have known for quite a while now: elimination diets sometimes hold the key to helping people with otherwise “intractable” conditions. https://primo.fyi/2Ewyjaw
