Your best gut comes from a holistic approach
it’s not all about the magic diet!
We are what we digest and absorb.
If the food we eat is of poor quality, overeaten, shovelled into our mouths within seconds and eaten unconsciously in front of the television we are setting ourselves up for poor gut health. Obvious, right?
What’s not so obvious, let’s say I improve one of those aspects like change a fish and chips for grilled fish and salad but my gut is still producing symptoms and I am feeling unhealthy. It’s because we need to take a broader approach to food, we need to consider that we need to digest and absorb that food to gain health from it.
One person’s medicine is another person’s poison
The foods that build a robust gut in one person may not for another. One way to look at this is if I eat an apple I would expect this to feed my body with nutrients and provide fibre for good bacteria in my gut. But in your gut the natural sugars are not absorbed there made into gas and they cause bloating, irritation and diarrhoea! This food in your gut is the poison so to speak and demonstrates that everyone should not eat the same.
One point in time this food brings me health the next it brings me dis-ease
The environment to which the food is being digested is important if there are too many or the wrong types of bacteria or too much gases present then digestion does not occur optimally. These factors are so dynamic and can contribute to scenarios like never well since that bout of Bali belly or that round of antibiotics. The gut environment changed now even the healthiest foods I ate before cause me symptoms.
Change the environment in the gut and the food digests like it did before.
Get to know my approach
The first thing I think about when treating my private clients, is what they are eating and what I am going to advise them to eat, going to be digested and absorbed optimally?
Do they have an optimal environment in the gut to create health benefits from the foods I advise them to eat and the vitamins and minerals that I prescribe?
If after my client’s initial assessment and functional testing the answer is no, then it needs to be the first thing in their treatment plan to be addressed.
I have come to this conclusion through years of practice and seeing much of my client’s symptoms in other areas such as the skin, joints, hormones, mood etc all improve when I improved gut function.
Get to know adrian
From the start of my career it was lucky that it coincided with the emerging field of the microbiome of the gut aka the bugs that live within our bodies. The conclusions that I mentioned above is through seeing and hearing my clients getting better but also the accumulating research that supported my advice.
This field of research explained much of traditional medicine that I am trained in, that bitter tonics, fermented foods, broths etc. all have valuable benefits that improved gut function and hence overall health. It all seems common sense but it’s not.
We have gotten ourselves into trouble when it comes to the gut and our health and it is not always straightforward to fix.
The foods we eat, the medications that we take, the stressful lives we lead, the way we are born, to the houses we live in has all changed our gut function and the microbes that live within, to the detriment of our health.
To fix these issues and rebalance our guts takes a holistic and personalised system.
Is this right for you?
Guidance on what to eat to not cause bloating, gas, indigestion, heartburn, stomach pain, diarrhoea and constipation. Because you have listened to the simple advice of eat healthier, eat more fibre and take a probiotic and it doesn’t work!
Understanding on why when you try a diet, your excited and hopeful it will help you but the symptoms are worse, the same or only mildly better and hardly worth your effort.
Support through the not so obvious steps required to remove the symptoms via removing the cause and to repair the gut to optimal function so you can get the equation back of eating healthy=feeling and being healthy.
Clarity of what foods are good for your gut in the long term to maintain your results once you get them because bone broth and kombucha are not good for everyone, you are an individual and your diet should be too.
Reassurance that the countless tests and appointments with specialists that only resulted in the trash diagnosis of IBS or ‘we can’t find anything, try the FODMAP diet’ and then passed a handout, is not the end of the road.
Simplification of what tools are actually needed to get me symptom free, healed and achieving a you best gut. Let’s face it some of us have purchased an enzyme or probiotic or two in the hopes of the quick fix only to be left out of pocket and popping multiple mostly unnecessary supplements to no avail.
