Healthy Gut: Gut Detox + Anti-Bloat Programme
“All Disease Begins in The Gut” – said Hippocrates over 2000-2500 years ago.
A growing number of people have a high prevalence of various gastrointestinal diseases. These are characterised by an insufficient amount of beneficial bacteria and an excessive number of pathological (bad) bacteria. A lack of bacterial diversity also negatively impacts on gut health. Largely this happens due to a poor diet but there are other reasons as well:
✓ Medications (antibiotics, NSAID-painkillers, birth control pills, antacids, corticosteroids hormones etc)
✓ Exposure to Environmental Toxins
✓ Chronic Stress etc
Who needs a gut detox?
Unfortunately, dysbiosis (unbalanced gut flora) can lead to different health issues such as:
✓ Abdominal pain/Belching/Excess gas/Bloating/Constipation/Diarrhea
✓ Rheumatoid arthritis
✓ Chronic fatigue/Low energy
✓ Poor memory/Foggy thinking/Frequent mood swings/Anxiety/Depression
✓ Diabetes/Obesity/An inability to lose weight
✓ Heart disease
✓ Eczema/Rashes/Skin issues
✓ And MUCH MORE…
The health of the gut is absolutely fundamental to your overall health and well-being. Your gut is responsible not only for digestion and nutrients absorption but also for:
✓ 95% of your serotonin production
✓ 80% of your Immune system
✓ Protection from infections
✓ Metabolism etc
Recent data suggests that an unhealthy and unbalanced gut microbiome produces endotoxins called lipopolysaccharides (LPS) which are involved in the development of inflammation, insulin resistance, obesity and weight gain (1, 2). Thus, if you are struggling to lose weight or/and you experience some of the symptoms above, it is time to take care of the health of your digestive system.
What you can expect
Once you have completed your Personal Health & Lifestyle Questionnaire and a 3-day Food Diary, I will identify the reason and any hidden food allergies/sensitivities that are causing your health issues. A gut detox will be the first step in repairing your unhealthy gut. Why? This stage will prepare your gut to host “good” bacteria as without this step they would not be able to colonise new places in your colon. It means that regardless of how strong the probiotics you eat, they will not be able to make any difference in your unhealthy gut. So, first cleaning and then healing and sealing to prevent a leaky gut and improve the overall health of your digestive system.
