What’s Wrong With My Digestion?

Inflammatory disease, immune health, allergies, digestive complaints, mental health, mal-absorption of nutrients, hormone imbalance, cardiovascular disease and learning & behaviour problems are just some examples of illnesses that begin with compromised gut health.

Gut Health

Did you know…

  • 70% of your immune system is controlled by cells in your gut (intestines) so if gut health is compromised so is your immune system.
  • Many essential vitamins and enzymes are manufactured in a healthy digestive system.
  • Absorption of essential micro and macronutrients occurs within the digestive tract.
  • Compromised digestion leads to a host of escalating health problems.
  • Gut health problems often begin at birth and are made worse by diet and lifestyle.

The human body is like a planet inhabited by various micro-creatures which we can’t live without. Microorganisms are prolific on our skin, eyes, lungs, excretory organs, and in our digestive system. A healthy adult has approx 1.5 – 2kg of gut bacteria. This is a highly organised micro-world. Certain species predominate and control others.

Health problems related to poor digestion and immune problems include:

  • Colds and flu
  • Abnormal weight gain
  • Cancer
  • Inflammatory disease
  • Abnormal weight gain
  • Arthritis, Gout and asthma
  • Cardiovascular diseases
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Mental health problems – depression, ADHD, autism, dyslexia, schizophrenia, dyspraxia, anxiety, and epilepsy
  • Allergies, intolerances, food cravings, and digestive complaints
