About Karen:


About Me – Karen Maidment, founder & owner of End IBS Naturally

End IBS Naturally has evolved from a response to an ever growing cry from my friends and family, clients and colleagues to offer IBS treatment and diet plans and provide on-going support for permanent freedom from digestive issues.

For over 10 years, I struggled with severe digestive issues and Irritable Bowel Syndrome: night sweats, insomnia, irregular bowel movements; excess weight; chronic pain and bloating; difficulty concentrating and terrible mood swings. By following an IBS specific diet plan and making some lifestyle changes, I am now 100% free from even the slightest hint of any of the above. 

The discovery of Functional Medicine Lab testing revealed so much. The IBS symptoms that doctors told me couldn’t be cured were actually being caused by three major bug infestations living in my gut. And so, within just a month of starting my IBS treatment plan including a course of herbal cleanse supplements and following a ‘Free From’ diet and lifestyle plan, the change both internally and externally was remarkable. The pain in my stomach and back disappeared, I lost 7lbs in weight, my eczema improved, I began having regular bowel movements, and I was sleeping right through the night. Two months on, my emotional health began to restore itself, my concentration returned and I was able to enjoy many of the hobbies and interests that previously had been impossible. 

Since, I have spent over 7 years training with the world’s leading natural health practitioners …
