April is recognized as IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) Awareness Month, aiming to increase understanding of this complex and common condition. Up to 15% of the population is estimated to be affected by IBS, but it is often underdiagnosed. Regis Asseman, the founder and CEO of Guthealth.care, has struggled with IBS for most of his life, searching for effective long-term solutions. This lifelong quest led him to partner with licensed dieticians, psychologists and fitness experts to create a unique, holistic digital platform for IBS and gut health that currently helps IBS sufferers worldwide.

"I personally struggled with IBS and felt frustrated with the limited solutions offered by traditional medicine. After extensive research and gaining firsthand experience, I realized that a holistic approach utilizing nutrition, psychology and fitness was crucial for effectively managing IBS. This led me to create Guthealth.care, a comprehensive digital platform that guides individuals through the process of making dietary adjustments, managing stress and making lifestyle tweaks to keep their condition in check,” - says Regis Asseman.

Guthealth.care offers an innovative approach, providing a multi-faceted, holistic and fully digital gut health care platform. With a special focus on individuals suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), the comprehensive approach brings together dietary guidance, stress management techniques, lifestyle modifications and personalized support—all accessible through a user-friendly digital platform. By addressing the unique needs of IBS sufferers through a combination of innovative tools and evidence-based strategies, Guthealth.care is on a mission to empower individuals to take control of their digestive health so they can live their lives to the fullest.

Kristina Zalnieraite, Guthealth.care Head of Dietetics & Medical Affairs, says: "As a practitioner, I've seen a significant rise in the number of patients struggling with digestive issues, especially gut-related problems, over the past few years. This increasing trend stresses the immediate need for better solutions to address these issues. To help patients with IBS and other gut health problems, I've joined Guthealth.care. Our objective is to understand the complexities of these conditions and offer effective solutions that are accessible, affordable and easy to use.
