Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)
Intestinal Methanogen Overgrowth (IMO)
Small Intestinal Fungal Overgrowth (SIFO)
Dysbiosis (imbalanced Microbiome)
Gastritis/ Acid Reflux
Symptoms such as bloating, constipation, chronic diarrhoea
Do you want to be able to go out, wear what you want and not worry about bloating, or not worry about locating facilities on each outing?
Have you been given a diagnosis of IBS without reasoning to why or how this happened?
It is an ancient saying by Hippocrates
“All diseases begin in the gut”
Functional medicine recognises the integral aspect of gut health in our overall health and wellbeing. Recent research into the gut microbiome and intestinal permeability have shown how integral gut health is in its connection with a vast number of medical problems.
Compared to our ancestors generations, it is unfortunate that our beneficial microbiome has been impacted by modern day advances such as ultra-processed diets, heightened cleanliness levels, antibiotic overuse. This, as we now understand it, has been instrumental in the rise of many health conditions.
Gut health problems such as IBS, IBD, SIBO/IMO/SIFO, Gastritis, need to be managed in a personalised way as triggers, dietary patterns, microbiome composition and genetics are all unique for each individual.
Long term low FODMAP diets for IBS and antacid medication for acid reflux/gastritis are likely to be doing your body much more harm than good.
