Digestive issues can be uncomfortable, stressful and even disrupt your day-to-day activities. It can be challenging enough dealing with food intolerances, but add severe bloating where you look 6 months pregnant, unexplained abdominal pain, or having to rush to the nearest toilet, adds another layer of “well, this sucks”.
Why do we get it?
- Gut infections
- Insufficient hydrochloric acid (stomach acid)
- Nutrient deficiencies
- Digestive enzyme deficiencies
- Gallbladder issues
- Liver issues
- Poor gut motility
- Dysbiosis (imbalance in gut balance)
- SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth)
and much much more…
How can we help?
First of all we don’t recommend following restrictive diets long term such as the low FODMAP diet (no longer than 6-8weeks!).
We look at blood tests and relevant reports, your dietary intake and habits, and may order further gut testing for more answers. With this information, we create a diet and lifestyle plan, addressing the underlying cause of your symptoms so you can digest and absorb nutrients needed for your body. This gives the gastrointestinal system long awaited relief that stops uncomfortable and embarrassing symptoms so you can finally enjoy eating and living again.
