The Microbiome & Gut Health

Wellbeing Begins With Our Bacteria. 

By becoming balanced in your beneficial bacterial composition, you can access profound effects on your physical and mental wellbeing.  

Did you know you are the home to a community of trillions of microorganisms, including 38,000,000,000,000 (38 trillion) forms of bacteria, living in and on your body?

These bacteria alone represent 50% of you by cell count and there’s almost no function in the human body that our bacterial symbionts and their metabolites aren’t connected to, including the brain.

The gut is home to many of these microbes and as result plays the important role in the quality of our general wellbeing. It is affected by many factors; from the food we eat too the environment we live in.

Habitual tendencies, behavioural patterns, mindset, stress, sleep, food choices, exercise practices and toxin exposure, all can alter the balance of a gut’s microbial homeostasis. Understanding how the gut and brain are connected via an axis called the Vagus nerve, is also a key component to harmonious microbial health and I dive deeper into was to support this during consultations.

Understanding how the gut works and how to support it in a natural way, through simple changes to your lifestyle can have a profound on your health and happiness.

I hope to help you build a solid foundation of health knowledge and support you through a devised plan to help you pursue your health goals.
