Digestion for healthy happy bodies
- Are you tired of running to the bathroom or planning your life around your digestive health issues?
Do you stress about food because you aren't sure which ones are making you feel unwell?
Have you tried the gluten free, dairy free, sugar free, low carb, high protein and high fat diets in the hope of easing your sore tummy - but symptoms are still there or keep flaring up?
Have you heard about small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO)? Could your symptoms be SIBO?
- Did you know that poor digestive health leads to hormonal imbalances and can make your transition into menopause a hormonal nightmare.
- Skin conditions such as acne, eczema and dermatitis are signs of poor digestive health.
I am a SIBO Naturopath who has trained for many years in this interesting field of digestive health and have been successful in treating SIBO for both myself and for my clients.
I love working with both women and men who are fed up with suffering from digestive health issues like Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO). These people suffer symptoms such as, abdominal pain, diarrhoea, constipation (or both), bloating, excessive wind, reflux or burping after meals.
I focus on your digestive system to create a healthy microbiome. I do this so you don’t have to restrict your food choices or race off to the bathroom to relieve the pain or suffer from constipation (more than 3 days since you've opened your bowels) or that dreaded bloated belly.
I improve your gut health so you have healthy skin - so you don’t have to suffer from eczema, dermatitis, pimples or acne.
A happy, healthy gut makes happy, healthy hormones as well! Along with a strong immune system to fight of those viruses and those winter colds and flu.
So what is SIBO?
SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth) is caused by the build up of bacteria that lives in the large intestine moving into the small intestine. The main cause of this is from food poisoning; the over use of medications such as antibiotics, oral contraceptive pill, pain killers, PPIs etc; chronic (long term) stress; abdominal surgery, which causes internal adhesions and scaring; head injuries which affect the Vagus Nerve and stealth infections such as mould toxicity, environmental toxins, Epstein Barr Virus. The symptoms of SIBO are very similar to those of IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome.)
Unfortunately, SIBO sufferers (like myself) experience many uncomfortable and sometimes embarrassing symptoms like:
SIBO also can be the cause for other conditions like:
Great news - SIBO conditions are one of my favourite parts of Naturopathy!
I have first hand experience, as I know what it’s like to suffer from SIBO and digestive issues and also how wonderful life can be when the condition is under control. In fact it was this very issue which led me to become a SIBO Doctor approved Naturopath.
I love the challenge of repairing my client’s gut health and rebalancing their gut microbiome this enables your body to become healthy and happy.
Please note my SIBO clients are tested for SIBO (SIBO Breath Test) prior to commencement of treatment. This ensures that the correct treatment plan is designed for YOU!
