The ancient Greek physician, Hippocrates said “all disease starts in the gut”. The more clients I see and help, the more I see that this is true.
If you have something like irritable bowel with either constipation or diarrhea, this can affect energy, mood, thinking and may even restrict what you do.
Reflux, indigestion, bloating and feeling very uncomfortable can leave you feeling miserable.
If your stomach is off, your whole system can be off. For a long-time it was believed that there was no connection between the gut and the brain. If you have ever suffered from stomach or gut problems you will know this is not the case. Gut microbes play a very important role in everything from immunity to hormone balance, energy, sleep, bone health and of course, digestion.This is why if you have a problem the gut is always a good place to start. It’s also why we, as naturopaths, ask a lot of questions about your digestion and your gut.
There are so many things we can do to help with digestive problems using a combination of diet, lifestyle, nutritional and herbal supplements, but like everything it is individual and it depends on your particular problem!
What I can tell you though, is that there is so much we can do and many of my clients have had their problems sorted by working through their individualised programme addressing their particular concerns.
If you want to enquire further, just give us a call and we can talk you through what happens in a consultation and what you might expect or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
