Healing the Gut
Did you know that approximately 70% of our immune system is housed in the gut or that 80-90% of the neurotransmitter, serotonin (think well-being & happiness) is produced there?
Behind closed doors it's the gut that's responsible for keeping our body in working order; including breaking down the food we eat, balancing hormones, energy production, the condition of our skin & our mental health. That's just the tip of the iceberg too with what our glorious gut does for us on a daily basis!
So it makes sense to ensure our digestive system is in excellent shape to keep on top of it's extremely long 'To Do List'.
If you suffer from irregular bowel motions (diarrhoea /constipation), IBS, SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), bloating, cramps after eating, wind or heartburn, your gut is out of balance, in need of some TLC and a knowledgeable Naturopath!
We take a holistic health approach by looking at your diet and lifestyle to ascertain what the underlying issues might be, as you may have a food intolerance or sensitivity that's causing inflammation or a potential pathogen throwing your gut microbiome out of balance. Depending on your circumstances, we may also suggest pathology testing.
We then work with you to come up with a treatment plan to heal your gut & get your health back on track.
