Optimising Gut Health

This treatment article discusses what the condition is, and how it can affect you and your diet.  I also explain how an appointment with me can help you to navigate your diet, if you have this condition.

Optimising Gut Health

Inside your gut, there are trillions of microbes (including bacteria, viruses and fungi), which produce a wide range of chemicals including vitamins and hormones.  Due to this the environment within your gut, known as the gut microbiome, plays an important role in health. 

Having a healthy gut microbiome can help optimise the way your body breaks down food and responds to food intake.  It can also improve your immune system including help reduce the risk of certain diseases and even affect how your brain communicates with the rest of your body.

Diet has a significant impact on the health of our gut because the gut microbes will only thrive if we feed them the right things.  If you’re interested in optimising the health of your gut, in our appointment we can discuss dietary, as well as lifestyle changes you can make to support a healthier and happy gut.
