Gut Healing

Gut health is such a hot topic these days! Many people have issues with their digestion. This can be attributed to our busy lives, poor dietary choices, contaminated foods high in pesticides and herbicides, medications and stress. Even your genetics and way you were born impacts your gut health.

Signs of poor gut health:

  • Bloating

  • Smelly stools and gas

  • Gurgling

  • Nausea

  • Diarrhoea or constipation

  • Heartburn or indigestion

  • Fatigue

  • Poor sleep

  • Skin issues

  • Food intolerances

  • Autoimmune complaints

Some people go for years putting up with these issues, however you don’t have to! For years Deborah has helped people achieve a healthy functioning digestion free from irritation. Often that includes doing some investigation to ascertain the cause of the issue. This can include doing a simple diet and symptoms diary or other more complex testing such as sending away a stool sample or testing for food allergies and intolerances.
