Healthy Digestion

Healthy digestion is something we all strive for, as it makes us feel so much better and allows us to function mentally, physically and socially with full joie de vivre.  There is however a plethora of reasons why things might go wrong causing our bodies to compensate which can lead to an imbalance in metabolism and ill-health.


Digestion is impacted by many different factors including:

  • Diet

  • Gut bacteria

  • Hormones

  • Exercise

  • Stress

  • Infections

  • Inflammation

  • Genetics

  • Medications

The body is one whole organism and if something is wrong in a particular system, the effects can manifest as symptoms in various parts of the body.  If the gut is not working properly, in particular the gut bacteria or ‘microbiome’, it can contribute to;-​

  • Digestive disorders e.g. irritable bowel, bloating, flatulence, constipation, acid reflux, gall bladder issues,

  • Weight gain

  • Hormone imbalance e.g. poor oestrogen regulation, endometriosis, PCOS

  • Immune reactions and inflammation e.g. joint pain

  • Skin conditions e.g. eczema, psoriasis

  • Low mood, anxiety, depression

  • Disrupted circadian rhythms and poor sleep

If you suffer from any of the above, or feel under par despite conventional tests results being within the normal range, then why not try the personalised approach?

 

I will consider the whole body and all symptoms to help you discover the underlying cause using a detailed health history, symptom map, and lifestyle & diet analysis. Functional tests e.g. microbiome, nutrient levels, can help to understand your current metabolic health and aid in determining the best first step on your better health journey.
