If you have digestive issues then it is difficult to think about anything else, in fact your brain and gut are connected via something called the gut-brain axis. I chose a career in the world of nutrition because I was diagnosed with IBS in my 30's. I used the advice of a Nutritional Therapist and also other techniques to help myself. That doesn't mean I am going to give you the same advice though, I will review your health and help you to find your root cause.
When to see me:
- If you have IBS
- You have a diagnosis from the GP such as an inflammatory bowel condition. I can work with you if you are on medications.
- If you think you have food intolerances
- If you suspect issues with histamine
- You've come back from a foreign holiday and never recovered
- Long term or many prescriptions of antibiotics
- Difficulty controlling your weight
- Anyone with a health condition that may benefit from digestive support
- Sports people who have digestive issues
What does 'digestive support' look like.
It includes food to add and remove, or eat more of. This may be for a few weeks, months or longer. It can include supplements that I will advise you on, and also stool testing that can indicate how well your digestion is working, the profile of gut bacteria and many other factors.
Gut health is also connected to everything else we do and how we live our lives; stress or life-load is actually a large factor. I can advise you on stress management through food, supplements, habits and as a yoga teacher I can give you yoga advice if you ask.
