Gut complaints are one of the most common issues you can face and with symptoms occurring anywhere along the gastrointestinal tract you can often be left feeling drained, frustrated and unsure where to seek help. Your condition may be being medically managed using drugs to attempt to suppress symptoms or you may have been left to self-manage the situation through avoiding troublesome foods. That is, if the troublesome foods are indeed known! There is a better way - by addressing the underlying disturbance in the gut. While there can be number of reasons behind this, it is my job to find out why and to help you take back control of your health.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)
Diverticulosis and diverticulitis
Leaky Gut Syndrome
Low stomach Acid (Hypochloridia)
“Martin was very thorough in understanding what I wanted nutritional therapy for and provided in depth advice and recommendations based on my initial consultation. It’s helped me focus on changing my lifestyle but in a realistic way and found the recipes provided as part of this service good so far and an inspiration to think more about my food choices to positively influence my health.”
“Martin listened and asked pertinent questions. As a result of our conversation I tried a new eating plan recommended by him, within 4 days the symptoms eased and within 2 weeks I had no symptoms. I am still symptom free and thrilled by the result, life is joyful again!”
“After living with unpredictable bowel habits for around 18 months I visited Martin. He was quick to make gentle adjustments to my diet which resulted in a reduction of my main symptoms of gas and bloating. Over the following sessions we identified troublesome foods and the underlying issue.”
While the medical system is aimed at addressing more acute conditions I find people often feel they’re no clearer to resolving their gut issues with this approach and they can be left to self-manage with the long list of mystery symptoms still present.
While testing has a time and a place it can be frustrating to have the results come back over and over again as negative. This can leave you being diagnosed with IBS (some would actually argue that IBS is the lack of a diagnosis rather than a diagnosis in itself) and no nearer to feeling any better.
Once standard tests have ruled out many of the more dangerous gut issues, what then? By deeply understanding the gastrointestinal system and assessing your overall health and lifestyle it’s possible to dive deeper, address the root issue and work together to bring about lasting change.
