The Diarrhoea Controller - A SAFE – NATURAL - EFFECTIVE Solution

Hello and welcome. My name is Julie L Timms and I am known as The Diarrhoea Controller. I specialise and niche in working only with adult men and women (over the age of 18) worldwide. I do this via online 1-2-1 private and confidential weekly video chat sessions over a 3-months period. My clients are suffering from the embarrassing and debilitating problem of ongoing loose stools, chronic diarrhoea, faecal leakage and faecal incontinence. They are looking for a kind, caring, empathetic, yet practical and down-to-earth person who can help them find an evidence-based solution in dealing with their current dilemma - once and for all!

The men and women I work with all have a very similar story to tell. 

That is, they all have been down the medical route and have been diagnosed with one or more of the following over the years:

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome with Diarrhoea (IBS-D)
  • Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders (FGID)
  • Spastic colon with diarrhoea
  • Nervous colon with diarrhoea
  • Motility disturbance with diarrhoea
  • Exercise – induced diarrhoea


And then …

Have been told there is nothing more that can be done medically for them. 

Have been told that only medication will help control their symptoms.

Have not been advised to look at the correlation between the mind-gut connection and simple diet and lifestyle changes.

Have been told to just get on with it and learn to live with it.

But know there is a safe, natural, calm, and effective way of controlling it. But had not found it – until now

Welcome to my world that once was! I genuinely know first-hand what you are going through. As I once was a sufferer for 20+ years myself of chronic diarrhoea and faecal incontinence after suffering a really bad bout of food poisoning in my early thirties. I ended up hospitalised for a week as I was so ill. 

After years of tests, I was diagnosed with having either IBS-D - even though I did not have the classic IBS symptoms, or a Functional Gastrointestinal Disorder with diarrhoea in my early fifties. But basically, they were not quite sure what it was and gave me the label. I was told that there was nothing more they could do for me medically. And that I would just have to learn to live with it. And to go and eat plenty of natural yogurt and take some Imodium® when I had an attack. And not get stressed, as that could make the “problem” worse. End of subject. Case closed. Goodbye!

When I heard this, I then decided to take matters into my own hands and ventured on my own journey of self-discovery and change. I achieved this through lots of professional studying and training around digestive health, diet, nutrition, and how lifestyle can affect the gut. I was already working in the field of Clinical Hypnotherapy, Counselling & Psychotherapy in private practice. So, I just added on specialist clinical training and practice in gut directed hypnotherapy and counselling psychotherapy. I literally learned how to heal my mind and body as one. And in doing so, I learned how to control my chronic diarrhoea and faecal incontinence problem once and for all. 

Physiologically. The process of healing the gut from any kind of digestive disturbance takes approximately three to four months of kind and gentle rehabilitation. So, that it can start to recover slowly and calmly over time in order for the whole of the digestive tract and bowel to start to function normally once again, in the way that nature intended. So, no quick fixes here if you want to heal fully and completely.

Just as a side note. Nobody will ever get rid of diarrhoea completely, as it is a natural defence system, when your body is under attack from a virus, bacteria, poison, or pathogen. And where it needs to get the attacker out of your body as fast as possible to avoid any long-term damage or future problems to your body’s systems or organs.
