Low FODMAPS forever?
November 15th, 2020 + The Naturopathic Co.

Often people on a low FODMAPS diet think that when you have digestive issues you need to go low FODMAPS indefinitely, but that’s usually not the case.

Going low FODMAPS is an interim dietary change, and it’s not particularly healthy to continue this eating pattern ongoing.
For those who have no idea what I’m referring to, FODMAPS stands for

Fermentable

Oligosaccharides

Disaccharides

Monosaccharides

Polyols

This way of eating is usually an effective way to manage digestive symptoms (such as IBS symptoms) due to lower intake of the FODMAPS foods that contain certain carbohydrates which ferment in the gut and can contribute to digestive symptoms (bloating, diarrhea, pain etc).
The problem with being low FODMAPS indefinitely, is that our body can’t develop a diverse ecosystem of healthy bacteria without these foods.
If you’re on a low FODMAPS diet and you’d like some support in reintroducing some of those foods, then make a time to discuss with your naturopath. The most important thing is to find the underlying cause of the digestive complaint. Cutting out FODMAPS foods is just treating symptoms.
