Warm Welcome! 🙏

Hi, I’m Bavani, a Holistic Nutritionist, Classical Hatha Yoga Teacher and the founder of the iControlIBS program.  Through my 3-Phase IBS program, I teach people how to take control of their painful IBS symptoms and reclaim their health!  I struggled with IBS for so many years with no solution because the allopathic medical system didn't fully recognize IBS at that time.  The common attitude amongst many medical doctors was that "it is all in your head".   Whatever 'alternative' solutions I tried didn't help heal fully either.  It often left me feeling so frustrated and defeated!  So, I decided things had to change.

It was in 2011 that I began to educate myself on Holistic Nutrition through formal studies to know more about human health.  In 2013, I became a Certified Holistic Nutritionist and a Certified Hatha Yoga Teacher.  I learned so much about digestion, what can impair the function of the gut, the brain-gut connection, and so much more.  I incorporated many of the ideas from my study into my daily life and noticed a significant improvement.  However, I still wasn’t free of all of IBS symptoms.  So, I spent the next couple of years reading all of the scientific articles and books on IBS and the power of food over the body and mind.

I spent just as much time experimenting with what I learned on myself until I figured out what actually worked.

Guess what? IBS is a complex digestive condition that requires a comprehensive approach to take control of it.  There is no quick fix for it!

Food is just a part of the solution, but your brain and how you feel is also connected to your gut, which is called the gut-brain connection.  Hence, IBS is often referred to as a Brain-Gut disorder.

Combining all my knowledge and experiences into a complete and comprehensive IBS control method was what helped me take control of my IBS symptoms and reclaim my health!


Cooking, holistic nutrition, and yoga are three things that I live and breathe.  My passion is in inspiring, empowering, and supporting you to discover how resilient your body and mind are in generating vibrant health and inner wellbeing, all from within. 

In health and well-being,
