Good Digestion is Fundamental to Health
Daily in my practice I see patients presenting with digestive disturbances and increasingly many of these patients are children.
• Abdominal pain
• Reflux/Heart Burn
• Bad Breath
• Irritable Bowel Syndrome
• Leaky GUT
• Food Intolerances/Sensitivities/Allergies
• SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth)
• Microbial Imbalances: parasites, bacteria, fungi, viruses
• Skin problems
• Chronic diseases: Coeliac disease, Crohn’s disease, Ulcerative Colitis
• Fatigue, Headaches, Weight gain
• Mental/Emotional imbalances (link this to Stress/Anxiety/Sleep)
The real issue is that if you experience any of these symptoms or have any of these conditions then you are probably not absorbing nutrients efficiently from your seemingly “healthy diet”. If we didn’t have to eat for the nutrients that support all metabolic processes and life, then we wouldn’t have disease.
What to do?
1.Assess the underlying cause or trigger: stress or trauma, gastritis with or without overseas travel, an operation, long term use of antibiotics/medications, hormonal changes etc.
2.Individual appropriate evidence-based “functional” testing: CDSA (stool testing), SIBO breath testing, IgG food sensitivity testing, Organic Acid testing (OAT), Helico Bacter Pylori (H Pylori), Liver function testing (bloods and stools), Body Scanning (link this to page),
3.Customised Individual Treatment Plan: Eating plans, Safe and effective natural medicines to “heal, seal and support” the gut.
4.Emotional support to calm and encourage lifestyle changes throughout the healing process. Journey and Discover what best “Feeds” Your Body and Health
