Many people suffer from gut health issues without knowing it. The good news is, digestive health problems are treatable.

A healthy digestion is key to your wellbeing, yet for many people who suffer from chronic health problems the gut is often overlooked.

At Healthful, we work closely with each client to uncover why you are experiencing your gut signs and symptoms. We will also work with your doctor to get the right testing done. By using general and functional pathology testing we can understand exactly what we are dealing with.

There’s a long list of clues which point to gut problems. Those who suffer from them will know them well: nausea, intestinal bloating, flatulence, abdominal pain and changeable stools, among others.

But there is another problem with poor gut health – many sufferers simply endure it thinking that it can’t be treated successfully, or they suspect that they have a gut problem but have never been diagnosed.

Some people try to relieve the discomfort by restricting their diet to avoid triggering gut issues. Others live with ongoing pain thinking that it’s normal or that there are no treatments.

Newsflash – there are always answers

If you are reading this looking for – indeed, hoping for – an explanation about what’s causing your discomfort, we have good news. Most gut problems can be fixed, including:

  • Crohn’s disease
  • Ulceratrive colitis
  • Coeliac disease
  • Diverticulitis
  • Digestive enzyme insufficiency
  • Low stomach acid production
  • H pylori infection in the stomach
  • Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (or SIBO)
  • Lactose or fructose malabsorption
  • Under or overgrowth of bacteria in the bowel
  • Parasite infections
  • Functional constipation

First steps

As a starting point it’s important to investigate exactly what is going on.

At Healthful we strive to uncover why you experience your gut symptoms. By using general and functional pathology testing we can understand exactly what we are dealing with.

Nutritional and herbal medicine can help treat both structural and functional gut disorders and sometimes that is all that’s required. In other cases a combination of the biomedical and natural approach is the key to getting a successful resolution, too.

When required, we will use evidence-based treatments such as digestive enzyme and stomach acid support, anti-microbial herbs, digestive anti-inflammatory herbs, pre and probiotics and dietary changes to correct deficiencies and imbalances in the digestive tract.

Whatever your condition, there is one aim in all of this – living without the symptoms. That’s a goal worth working towards.
