  • “I never knew the cause of my pain, or my bloating. I saw several doctors, specialists even. Finally, it was my pharmacist who insisted I should try the FoodMarble AIRE. My life changed completely. AIRE taught me so much.”

The FoodMarble AIRE is my solution to a pain free life, knowing that I now can control my symptoms.

For many years now, I have been struggling with IBS. I saw several doctors, specialists even. One of them said to me straight: “you suffer from IBS. It’s nothing life threatening, however, it does cause you to lose quality of life”. She, a doctor specialised in internal diseases, was absolutely right. My abdominal pain would sometimes get so bad that I would be forced to quit whatever I would be doing at that moment, and go home, not even able to stand up straight. I never knew the cause of my pain, or my bloating.

Last year, I started to see new doctors and even had a scan of my bowel system, as I was convinced something else had to be wrong. The scan showed nothing but the severe bloating. That was it. I ordered some probiotics online, thinking it would help (thank you for many articles online on IBS -not-). It didn’t, it even made me consider going to hospital, because of extreme pains, from taking the wrong probiotics (containing something I didn’t digest).

The last doctor I saw suggested I would follow the FODMAP diet, seeing a dietician to help me through this very strict and difficult diet that lasts for weeks. I then came to the conclusion that I have problems digesting onion and garlic. Being very happy at that moment, thinking my problems would be solved, I started avoiding onion and garlic.
My pain and bloating never went away, causing me psychological difficulties, since having pain on a regular basis and not understanding why, is something difficult to comprehend. It was clear, onion and garlic were not the only problem.

Finally, it was my pharmacist who insisted I should try the FoodMarble AIRE. At first, I hesitated. You must know, I tried so much in the past, costing me so much money all together. But, my pharmacist insisted again, explaining to me that the FoodMarble device was unique and medically substantiated. Last but not least, he bought and tried AIRE personally, before recommending it to me. I then ordered AIRE online, along with the FODMAP testing kit.

My life changed completely. AIRE taught me so much. One of the biggest eye openers is the fact that it detects digestive problems, even before the pain starts. For example, broccoli (I try to eat healthy) was one of my favourite vegetables, and is a no go for me. I had no idea. I don’t use it every meal, you don’t have to. After a while, because of the breath tests, the FoodMarble app gives you a perfect and personal insight on your problem foods. It’s an intelligent system. It’s not just the pain, I now know how to avoid it, it’s the psychological part as well, the knowing what causes my pain in the first place.
Inulin for example, of which I thought would be a problem, gave sky high results. Just to see that confirmation, had such a calming effect on me.

IBS is not life threatening, no. But it is a disorder that can cause symptoms that will affect your daily routines along with your quality of life, for sure. The FoodMarble AIRE is my solution to a pain free life, knowing that I now can control my symptoms. If my story helps one person, I would be more than happy!
