Why is digestive health important?


Digestion is such a vital part of our bodily function as it is constantly working while we are both awake and asleep. Studies show that 95% of the body’s serotonin is found in the bowel which means a healthy gut means a healthy mind!


What are common signs and symptoms of the digestive system?

  • Bloating

  • Cramping

  • Constipation

  • Diarrhoea

  • Flatulence (gas or wind)

  • Food Intolerances – dairy, gluten and wheat

  • Food Intolerances – amines, salicylates and glutamates.

  • Haemorrhoids

  • Heartburn

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

  • Reflux – belching and/or dry reaching


All of the above conditions are the body’s way of communicating that there is an underlying cause or concern that needs to be treated. Once the root cause of the problem can be identified the condition is then holistically treated.
