Gut and Digestion


Did you know that the health of your digestive tract can influence the wellbeing of your whole body – including your moods, your skin and your immune system?   Research is continually validating the central role the gut and the bacteria that live there (our 'microbiome') play in our overall health, and modern medicine is beginning to recognise this connection also.

 

Symptoms of digestive discomfort are one of the most common reasons for doctor’s appointments, and can be amongst the most uncomfortable and distressing conditions to experience.   These are always a sign that something is not quite right in the digestive system.  Thankfully, looking closely at gut health is at the heart of natural medicine.  

Thankfully, natural support is available for common conditions such as:

  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhoea
  • Coeliac Disease
  • Dysbiosis (an overgrowth of bad bacteria in the gut)
  • Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO)
  • 'Leaky gut'/intestinal permeability
  • Indigestion
  • Reflux
  • Bloating & gas
  • Food intolerances
