I have had a growing passion for the healing power of food since I was in my twenties. After many years of eating the same boring foods I started to crave a more varied diet full of nutritious food. I started to appreciate the benefits of eating healthy foods can have on your body and mind. I have experienced first hand their affects and wanted to pass this knowledge onto others.
Your digestive system is one of the most important systems in the whole body and if it’s working well and causing you no problems then it’s easy to take it for granted.
Having an understanding about how your gut works and tuning in to the messages it gives you can be more beneficial than you may think. When something goes wrong during the process of digestion, it affects not just your gut and causing problems already discussed, but can have a wide range of affects on the rest of the body. Poor digestion is indirectly responsible for conditions ranging from immune dysfunction, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue to arthritis and psoriasis. Therefore, improving digestion is a critical component in restoring health and preventing disease.
A poor diet may seem like an obvious cause, but illness, certain drugs and even getting older all contribute to our current gastrointestinal health crisis.
Good digestion is a key piece to any naturopathic plan. Different approaches to digestive wellness might include dietary modification, laboratory testing, food allergy identification, immune support and high-quality probiotics. With an appropriate nutrition programme the body quickly begins to heal and repair itself. Often small dietary changes can have a big impact on overall health and well being. Once any underlying infections or imbalances are addressed clients quickly report improved health and reduced symptoms.
