Your gut is your second brain, making it both sensitive yet crucial and indispensable. Gut health determines what nutrients are absorbed, and not to mention what toxins are kept out! With a nervous system of it’s own, it is complexly intertwined with the brain itself; meaning it is arguably involved in all of the body’s processes. Few are yet to realise that the health of the gut is directly linked to the health of the whole body.
Healthy digestion can be described as efficient break-down, absorption and utilisation of food, however this complex and essential process depends on a number of sensitive factors. Our genetics, the diet and lifestyle we lead, the medication and environmental factors we are exposed to, our emotions and thoughts, and even the information we are surrounded by are some of these many factors that impact our digestive health.
If the balance is disrupted, digestion is then compromised – causing symptoms such as acidity, reflux, constipation, diarrhea and bloating. This eventually leads to digestive disorders, not to mention health complications that are seemingly unrelated to the gut, which include eczema, arthritis, menstrual irregularities, allergies, thyroid issues, poor energy and even sinusitis!
Digestive concerns involve the digestive tract, which includes the esophagus, liver, stomach, small and large intestines, gallbladder and pancreas. Often patients are told that they have to live a lifetime with their complications. Holistic medicine works on treating the core issue, rebalancing the body and restoring your body’s optimal function.

Gone are the days of invasive, heavy medications and treatments that do nothing but provide a temporary relief along with a long list of frustrating side effects.
