Digestive Health

Do you feel bloated? Swollen? Sluggish? 

Are your bowel habits awkward or uncomfortable? 

Unable to think straight?  Brain fog? 

The answer could lie in your gut....

The gastrointestinal system is the primary place where the outside world can communicate with the inside world and the cells of your body.  Within the gastrointestinal system lie cells and microbes that not only help us to digest our food, but also aid our immune system and help to create neurotransmitters and hormones, which influence our mood and our energy.  So, not surprisingly, if this system isn’t in balance, the body will try to let us know by presenting a variety of signs and symptoms. 

 

If there’s an imbalance in your gastrointestinal system, you may experience:

  • Bloating

  • Wind

  • Constipation

  • Diarrhoea

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Fatigue

  • Reoccurring colds and flus

  • Brain fog

  • Food intolerances

  • Eczema

  • Asthma

  • Rheumatoid arthritis

  • Muscular or joing aches

  • Unexplained weight loss or gain

 

It helps to think of the gastrointestinal system as being like the underground root and soil system of a tree.  If the root is damaged or the soil is poor, the tree is unable to thrive and may present with poor quality leaves or fruit, or weakened bark or branches.

Today we are challenged on so many fronts and the gut has to deal with an overwhelming amount of environmental chemicals, pesticides and toxins on a daily basis, all of which begin to change its landscape. If the gut environment is less than optimal, it begins to affect how we absorb our nutrients, how we utilise energy, our mood, our sleep, our behaviour and our immune system. 

At Nutter by Nature, I will work with you to restore balance to your gastrointestinal system by utilising a number of natural therapies.

We can look at comprehensive testing to understand the underlying cause of your symptoms, and we will work to optimise the environment in your gut, helping to reduce your symptoms and enhance your energy. 

If you have a ‘gut feeling’ that something is not right in your belly and would like to see how we can help, please give me a call for a chat or book an appointment.
