Gut & Detoxification

 

Good Digestion is fundamental to good health. 

Our digestive system  is the host to trillions of good and bad bacteria forming an ecosystem known as our very own gut microbiome.  Your microbiome is an essential part of healthy living as without it, we wouldn't survive and without a healthy one, we can't thrive.

In addition to our digestive system performing it's function of breaking down food and absorbing nutrients, the gut is also the fundamental element behind a healthy immune response, with 70% of our immune system found in the digestive tract and around 90% of our neurotransmitters for healthy mental state being produced in the gut.

If you have been diagnosed with  Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) We aim to identify the underlying cause to see why your gut is irritable and use an array of specific functional tests to find out why your symptoms are occurring and what we can do to resolve them. 

Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a syndrome not a disease and more often then not, something we can correct.  

Parasitic, bacterial and fungal infections of the gut are very common causes of gut problems along with an imbalance of your good and bad gut bacteria, also known as dysbiosis are all often missed on simple pathology stool tests which therefore requires more comprehensive stool analysis ( see below) 

We offer functional pathology tests which may include the following

  • CDSA – stool analysis and digestive health

  • SIBO - a specific breath test for Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth

If severe gut infections are diagnosed, your practitioner may refer you to our holistic doctor for specialised pharmaceutical treatment, together with natural treatment, to enhance treatment outcomes.
