  • ‟I am very satisfied with the service from InnerBuddies. The dietary advice was not only very specific and comprehensive, but I was pleasantly surprised that for this price, after a few months, I received updated advice based on new insights. They also respond quickly and attentively to your questions and show great consideration, thinking along with you.”

    - Ellen, age 36 -

  • "I am a big advocate, your tests fixed my belly pain :)"

    - Guido, age 51 -

  • "Super help!!! I was already well on my way, but now I know for sure what I should and should not eat, drink. I have been struggling with stomach and intestines for so long, hope I can get rid of it now."

    - Petra, age 68 -

  • "I would like to let you know how excited I am. We had been on the diet for about two months (my husband eats with us). We felt better with it, but how much better was really only noticed during the Christmas vacations when we had received a large Christmas package and didn't stick to the diet for a while. Well that did give motivation again, because what a difference in gastrointestinal symptoms but also energy in both of us!"

    - Manon, age 29 -

  • "Thank you very much for the comprehensive advice. The effort and the wait it’s worth it. Although unfortunately, or perhaps fortunately, nothing spectacular comes out of it. Nothing that could bring about starting changes. Actually, I am already doing quite well and that is also nice to hear. Here and there are some small adjustments and useful tips that I can start applying daily, such as peppermint tea for digestion and Kimchi. Although I must say that in general I find Kimchi too spicy and dare not venture to make it myself. So thanks again for your comprehensive advice and I am going to share in my surroundings plenty how excited I am about it."
