Transformation stories

At The Gut Health Doctor our goal is to empower and inspire everyone to enjoy good gut health. We have created this page because we know just how motivating it is to hear others’ experiences.

Focusing on gut health and plant diversity can bring about very real and far-reaching benefits and so we are proud to share stories from our community, including those who have worked with The Gut Health Clinic for personalised specialist support. We hope this will not only empower you to bring about your own gut health transformation but to share your story to motivate others, too.

During the COVID pandemic, my role in the NHS escalated and my reliance on convenience foods increased tenfold. I came across ‘Eat Yourself Healthy’ and became hooked. Everything made sense, as it taught me how my diet could be drastically impacting my physical and mental health. Using movement and The Gut Health Doctor’s approach of turning to a more diverse, plant-based lifestyle, my health changed drastically.

I was unhappy with my weight, my blood pressure was high and I felt every one of my 47 years. I decided to fully embark on a plant-based diet and aimed to eat 30+ plant points per week… I am the healthiest and fittest I have ever been, I have buckets of energy and I no longer have high blood pressure. I feel great!

I was diagnosed with IBS a few years ago. I did an awful lot of reading and found that eating as many plants as I could, with a good diversity, could help my situation. Among others, I came across Megan’s first book… I really enjoy the 30-plant points per week exercise, and the first time I did it, I was surprised at how many different plants I was actually eating. Dr Megan Rossi has really opened my eyes to the power of gut health.


Rothwell, UK

I have struggled with my health since my mid-30s with various issues, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol and IBS. My daughter recently sent me Dr Megan’s books, well… I feel transformed in only a few months. I have made lots of recipes from the books and The Gut Health Doctor website. I tell everyone about Dr Megan’s books. I won’t lend mine out, though. I use them too often!

Shortly after my parathyroid surgery, I was diagnosed with silent reflux… My dietary journey led me to learn about gut health, the microbiome, and how vital it is as the basis for good general health. After about 6 weeks of eating… I felt more energised. I was sleeping better, and my reflux symptoms were virtually non existent… I look and feel strong, healthy and better than I expected to be at close to 60!

I was diagnosed with silent reflux about 6 years ago after several years of frightening incidents. I went on an exclusively wholefoods, plant-based diet last January and successfully came off my prescribed medication. With resources provided by The Gut Health Doctor, I am really happy to have brought my condition under control without replying on drugs. Hurray for plants!


East Surrey, England

A shock diagnosis of gestational diabetes at 30 terrified me. I have read and researched gut health including reading Dr Megan Rossi’s books and I started actively cooking from scratch fibre rich plant-based meals. I have recently had blood work done and everything is in top order. I am feeling the best I have ever felt… !


Surrey, England

I’m 68 and after a life of being relatively healthy, it was a bit of a shock to have a heart attack. My daughter immediately got me an appointment at The Gut Health Clinic and ordered me one of Dr Megan Rossi’s books. My eating is completely different now and I am developing a new respect for what can be created using healthy ingredients.


Kent, England

I started to have various joint weakness, inflammation issues and was very low in iron. I got ‘Eat More, Live Well’… The majority of my meals are now recipes from the book. Within 6 weeks my energy levels started to improve. I have been astonished at how much I have learned during this process.


Lisburn, Northern Ireland

I suffered with gut issues for years following two major surgeries. I bought ‘Eat Yourself Healthy’ and haven’t looked back. Within a number of weeks my energy levels increased. I felt so much better within myself, my hair/skin had improved in strength, no gut pain or issues at all – to say I was ecstatic was an understatement!


London, England

I took little time to make sure I was looked after. This finally took a toll on my bowel with constant constipation, which resulted in haemorrhoids and polyps. I had to have several operations. Thanks to Dr Megan Rossi’s blogs, books and studies, I have managed to change my bowel habits. I feel free and happy again!


Stockholm, Sweden

In 2018, I became the illest I’ve ever been. My mouth turned white, I had mouth ulcers, lost lots of weight and had no energy. I stumbled across Dr Megan Rossi’s Instagram and read up on IBS and IBD. Two weeks into trying the plant focused diet my symptoms significantly improved. This has given me a whole new perspective that has changed my life.
