Specialist nutrition and lifestyle management support
Since starting our practice we have watched with interest the evolution of the knowledge on the digestive system, there is still much that we do not know however its is widely accepted that imbalances within digestive tract play a role in the development of many pathologies.
The digestive system is responsible for a number of important functions:
Digestion and absorption of nutrients
Interacts synergistically with the immune system
Protects the internal environment from pathogens and toxins
Houses the microbiome
Eliminates waste products
Protects against obesity
Protects against low grade chronic inflammation
Supports hormone clearance
The delicate functions of digestion can be easily disrupted by a number of dietary and lifestyle factors, likewise medications such as antibiotics, proton pump inhibitors and the contraceptive pill can cause imbalances with the microbiome and detrimentally alter your natural ecosystem. We see many clients come through our door having spent a fortune on testing and supplements, however in most cases we have found these to be completely unnecessary.
We work with our clients to identify the root cause of symptoms by taking a deep dive into health histories so that we can develop a personalised plan to support digestive health. We not only look to the gut itself but we consider supporting the nervous system responses that promote healthy digestion, we will support the unique ecosystem within your mouth, stomach and intestines, optimise the production of digestive secretions and identify stress responses and foods triggers

As part of your client intake process and to ensure safe and best practice, we will request copies of your medical notes and access to be able to communicate with your healthcare providers. Throughout our time working together we will ensure that we will update your healthcare providers on any nutrition and lifestyle interventions that we recommend."
