Are gut problems ruling your life?

Digestive system problems can massively impact your quality of life.
The most common disorders include:
Gerd (gastro-intestinal reflux disease)
Irritable bowel syndrome
SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth)
Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) that include Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
With any of these issues you can experience depression and anxiety. It's common to feel helpless and despondent, especially if other practitioners have dismissed your concerns, leaving you thinking you're stuck with your condition and can't do anything about it.
Your quality of life can be severely impacted with these conditions. Many people are unable to work or can only work part-time. You may also find you can’t take part in activities you enjoy because of embarrassing and debilitating symptoms such as excessive gas and diarrhoea.
Enjoying meals is a common problem as you find yourself having to limit foods to try to avoid or reduce symptoms. Eating out becomes a minefield. If you're at friends' or family's houses, you risk insulting them by not be able to eat what they've made for you. If you eat out, you can't be sure what's in the meal you're being served, or you might find there is very litttle on the menu that you can eat.
Many of my patients come to me very confused about what foods are ok and what are making things worse.
If you have gut problems and you’re not sure what’s wrong, there are many excellent tests around that can look at gut function, bacterial imbalances and presence of parasites, fungi (such as Candida) and other unwanted microbes.
I can order tests for you, interpret your results and come up with an action plan to help you.
If you already have a diagnosis, I can help you find natural, effective ways to manage symptoms and address the underlying cause of your condition.
