Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and other digestive disorders have a profound impact on health and wellbeing.
Common causes of digestive problems include poor gut motility, low stomach acid, low digestive enzymes, food intolerances, intestinal infections and dysbiosis (gut flora imbalance).
The purpose of a nutritional therapy consultation is to find the root cause of your digestive problems by assessing medical history, gut ecology, food intolerances and triggers, dietary habits and lifestyle factors.
A nutritional therapy programme can address these factors, helping to improve digestion and restore optimum gut health.
I can also offer nutritional advice and dietary programmes for those with diagnosed conditions such as Crohn's disease, coeliac disease, ulcerative colitis, acid reflux and individuals with specific dietary requirements.
A simple non-invasive stool test can identify underlying causes of digestive symptoms.
I work with Genova Diagnositcs, and can assess a number of factors that influence digestive health. We can test for:
levels of beneficial and pathogenic bacteria
yeasts such as candida
markers of digestion and absorption
levels of inflammation

You can book an appointment at one of my Manchester-based clinics, or arrange an online consultation via Skype.
