The majority of individuals who seek out advice from a registered Nutritional Therapist are looking to restore gut health. They have some combination of bloating, gas, indigestion, constipation or diarrhoea. Or perhaps they’ve been diagnosed with IBD, IBS or SIBO.
Whatever the diagnosis, the gut isn’t functioning properly, and if the gut is off, then the immune system is off (70% of the immune system is in the gut), the mood is off (important neurotransmitters are produced in the gut) and brain function is off (the gut is considered the ‘second brain’).
You get ill more often, you might struggle with anxiety or depression and you can’t think clearly – you have brain fog and poor memory / concentration.
