What you eat, drink and are exposed to each day can have a profound effect on your health
So many people think they eat a healthy diet, yet suffer a whole range of health issues. Some so-called 'healthy' foods can actually be at the root of your problem, because we have been led to believe they are unconditionally 'good' for us, yet we are not all the same. The food we eat today is often less nutritious than in previous generations, with residues of pesticides and processing additives, whilst vital trace elements are missing.
Digestion is a key factor in health and symptoms such as bloating, wind, reflux, food allergies, autoimmune, skin disorders and other diseases can result unless corrected. Digestion is vitally important as what we absorb each day in our diet, will affect every cell in our body and affect the way we look and feel.
"A truly good physician first finds out the cause of the illness, and having found that, he first tries to cure it with food. Only when food fails does he prescribe medication......" ~ Sun Ssu-Mo (6th century AD)
IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), is the most common disease diagnosed by gastroenterologists and two out of ten people in the UK are suffering with it. Symptoms can vary, but typically can present as bloating, wind, abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhoea. Other symptoms can be nausea, anxiety and depression. Stress of course can further exacerbate, and quality of life can be affected to various degrees. Causes can be many, including dysbiosis, (altered gut bacteria), Sibo, (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), a high sugar, processed and low fibre diet, food intolerances, (I come across this often), medications including antibiotics, parasites, leaky gut, (gut permeability) and others.
It is most important when dealing with gut issues to find out the source of the problem in order to correct and restore gut and bowel functionality.
