Five years ago I barely even knew what an MRI was.  Since then, the word MRI has featured far more frequently than I would have liked within my family.  Due to serious health scares with three of my four children, they have each undergone the stressful procedure of an MRI.  Two of them were just four at the time so had to be put to sleep.  As any parent knows this is heartbreaking to go through.  One of my children was seven though and we made the tough decision to keep him awake for it.  Luckily I was able to tell him exactly what to expect as I myself had to have an MRI just last year.  You can read about my MRI experience here at my blog My Boys And Me.



I am Kerry Gibb, mum to four amazing boys aged 8, 7, 5 and 2. Looking after four little boys means my feet don't touch the ground but late at night, when they are all tucked up in bed, I unwind by writing my blog. Whether you are a mum of boys or a mum of girls I hope you will enjoy reading my honest, heartfelt and hopefully entertaining words of wisdom as I continue my ever evolving path of bringing up my boys the best way I can!

  1. Hi Kate, your website is a great roscuree! I was recently diagnosed with SIBO and being a nutrition and dietetics student, studying to be an RD, I did some research and found out about this diet. I am working with my gastroenterologist and a RD who is very familiar with this diet. I am in the elimination phase and based on your revised list there are some things that I was advised not to have and some I could have, these foods are in the moderate polyols & fructans.GOS area. Do you recommend I restrict any of these during the elimination phase? Avocados, asparagus, broccoli, Brussels sprouts for example I have been avoiding. Also, I react to grapes and do not eat them but enjoy my red wine? Thoughts on if red wine is okay then. The RD I am seeing also wants me to avoid peanut butter, and I love PB, for the elimination phase because of the way it ferments for people with overgrowth, do you think it is okay? Also, some stuff is under researched still such as pomegranate and goji berries. Nature’s path food has a gluten free cereal called whole O’s and these are the INGREDIENTS: Brown rice flour*, corn flour*, evaporated cane juice*, pomegranate juice concentrate*, sea salt. *Organic. Because of the pomegranate juice is this not fodmap friendly?Thanks for all your help on this issue, it is great to know I can look on your blog for a reliable roscuree for information. I am also attending the conference in NH, so I am looking forward to learning more about this.Thanks,Kristen
