GutBetter: Transforming Gut-Brain Health

MindLife is currently developing GutBetter, an innovative solution in development that aims to address the unmet needs of the vast population of people affected by Disorders of Gut-Brain Interaction (DGBI) – an estimated 500 million people worldwide. At MindLife, we’re committed to transforming the landscape of treatment for conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), pain, diarrhoea, and constipation. Once it has been developed and tested GutBetter will offer an unprecedented approach that promises relief and improved well-being for the millions who’ve endured years of discomfort.

DGBI, a group of conditions affecting the connection between the gut and the brain, has posed a significant challenge for both patients and healthcare professionals for many years. The lack of physical indicators like ulcers or viruses, and the frequent lack of any clear physical cause for their condition, creates confusion for sufferers which exacerbates their misery and discomfort.  

Our vision includes empowering General Practitioners (GPs) to prescribe GutBetter with efficiency and precision through our TeleHealth solutions. This streamlined approach not only benefits healthcare providers but also offers a pathway to significant symptom reduction and improved quality of life for patients.

GutBetter will be made available in both purely self-help and blended therapy (incorporating the involvement of a therapist) options. Therapists and healthcare practitioners will be able to provide blended therapy remotely, ensuring patients receive personalised care and progress tracking. This level of support not only enhances the treatment experience and embodies our commitment to personalisation.

While GutBetter is still in development, it embodies our dedication to empowering millions who have faced years of discomfort to live happier and more empowered lives. By blending innovation, empathy, and advanced technology, we’re on a mission to create a brighter future for individuals who’ve long sought relief from conditions like IBS, pain, diarrhoea, and constipation.
