About the Author
Norman Robillard, Ph.D., founder of Digestive Health Institute is an author, consultant and microbiologist. He is also the creator of Fast Tract Diet and a former research scientist who devoted his career to developing new drugs for 20 years before he discovered the power of diet for his own digestive health.
Fast Tract Diet was presented at Digestive Disease Week in 2013 to provide gastroenterologists a different treatment option for SIBO related conditions.
Dr. Robillard helps people with a variety of digestive health issues through his consultation practice. He focuses on the root cause of conditions and applies his 3 pillar strategy for healing in place of drugs and antibiotics: 1. addressing underlying causes, 2. dietary modulation, 3. behavioral modification. Some of the common gut and related conditions include heartburn, acid reflux, LPR, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), celiac and Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, diverticulitis, asthma, rosacea and leaky gut.
Dr. Robillard received his Ph.D. at University of Massachusetts, Amherst and completed his post-doctoral training at Tufts University in Boston. He currently serves as a scientific board member for Nutrition & Metabolism Society.
His favorite quote: "No disease that can be treated by diet should be treated with any other means." - Maimonides
