Did you know that your gut is like your second brain?
In fact, there are more neurotransmitters in your gut than in your brain, which means that looking after your gut health is essential for your mental health. I’m passionate about helping my patients to improve their gut health because this can help to regulate your mood, boost the immune system, keep skin healthy, and improve sleep and energy levels. Focusing on the health of your gut is one of the most effective ways to enhance your overall health and wellbeing.
I work with my patients to improve their gut health by firstly evaluating your diet to assess if you’re eating foods that will keep your gut healthy and happy, and how you could improve. This might include eating a wider variety of foods, focusing on specific nutrients, vitamins or minerals, consuming more fibre, or avoiding foods that your gut doesn’t agree with.
Many of my patients might struggle with digestive issues or discomfort after eating. Whether these symptoms are an occasional inconvenience, or a debilitating daily occurrence, no one should have to put up with ongoing gut symptoms. As a nutritionist, I can help you explore whether a specific food or component doesn’t agree with you through a systematic trial and error process. If there’s another underlying cause for your gut symptoms, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), we can address this using evidence-based dietary and lifestyle interventions.
