"Back in 2014 I knew I wasn't the only person suffering in silence with IBS and its multitude of varying symptoms. Through years of scientific research, recipe development through mathematical equations based on how our gut bacteria like to eat and years of getting other IBS sufferers to try my *new* form of bread, The Happy Tummy Co. was born." - Karen O' Donoghue, Founder of The Happy Tummy Co.

The Happy Tummy Co. has one sole purpose - to be the first bakery school in the world to rid IBS sufferers of their IBS symptoms. 

"The Happy Tummy Co. began out of my home in Hackney, East London. I kept my head down and worked from 3am in the morning til around 11pm at night 6 days a week for almost 2 years. To say I cared deeply about my customers would be an understatement. I was my customer and they were me. During talks I would give across London and beyond I could see the pain I once felt on the faces in the audience. Those are the faces that still drive me today."

After four years running her bakery in London delivering bread across the UK and Ireland Karen decided she now more than ever wanted to teach people and create a special oasis in the countryside where people could come and learn a lasting way of looking after their own gut health. People adore coming down to the bakery school leaving with so much knowledge and digestible bread.

Once a week Karen prepares a big batch of a weekly special ancient grain sourdough as well as a big batch of her "magic poo bread" the chia teff loaf for delivery to customers around London and for collections from the bakery school. 

"I have complete belief in my bread's ability to heal you to your very core. It will not happen overnight but through our practice and movement together we will make lifelong changes that shall penetrate through your body, heart and mind forever more." Big love, Karen x
