The Gut and Mood

Changes in how we talk about mental health has changed dramatically over recent years with celebrities speaking out about their personal struggles with depression and anxiety.  While there can be a multitude of reasons behind these issues the links are growing stronger between what happens with our mood and what happens in our gut. Alterations in the Gut We literally have trillions of bacteria in our digestive system.  They help us digest food, modulate the immune system and balance inflammatory processes in the body.  While diet is a one of the best ways to support these bacteria, other things may be out of our control. Top of the list being the use of antibiotics with the more courses of antibiotics taken the greater the risk of depression. Depressed poo? One...

It Starts With The Gut

The gut is my main area of fascination and with the bacteria that live there being a massive component of our health how can we optimise it? We know the gut has many roles, from digesting and absorbing food to eliminating waste but the bugs that live inside our gut go above and beyond our initial expectations.  The human gut microbiota contains 100 trillion bacteria (yep!) which may be 10 times the number of cells in the human body and stem from over 1000 species.  Yet, while the war on bacteria may have led us to believe that it was an ‘Us VS them” scenario it is now clear that it is an “us and them” relationship with both sides coming out of the deal better...

I’m Coeliac and I’ve Removed Gluten – Now What?

As you can probably tell from the changes in menus and products available in supermarkets gluten related disorders are on the rise.  While symptoms can very between mild to extreme digestive distress (as well as to neurological and skin issues) a diagnosis of coeliac disease can be a tricky one to adjust to, especially as the western diet features gluten containing foods as a foundation. I’ve worked with people who have been dealing with gut issues that they’re actually relieved to have been diagnosed with coeliac by their doctor as it finally provides a reason for why they’ve been feeling so bad for such a long time.  Although the solution in avoiding all gluten containing foods seems simple enough, at least on paper, the in practice...

5 Ways to Relieve Constipation

As a society we rarely talk about our bowel habits.  Even the mention of it can cause people blush with embarrassment or make them attempt to divert the conversation in another direction.  However, apart for the social discomfort that it can bring the physical discomfort of altered bowel habits is also an issue for many.  Heaviness, bloating, sluggishness and even migraines, joint pain and brain fog can all stem from slow bowel movements....
