Did you know that for you to have a healthy gut and microbiome you need to be eating 40+different plant based foods per week?
Unfortunately, most of us stay with what we know and hardly reach the goal of 40. To help you keep your microbiome happy using your diet here are five ways you increase diversity in your diet.
If you’re looking to treat Leaky Gut Syndrome, SIBO, IBS or some other digestive disorder, I hope your health practitioner has explained the role digestive enzymes can play in your healing journey.
As a Gut Expert, Nutritionist and Naturopath in Melbourne, I’ve found that many clients with these conditions are also dealing with digestive enzyme insufficiency.
Have you ever thought, ‘WTF?’, when confronted with all the different types of fibre?
Of course, I mean, ‘What The Fibre?!’.
I get it, it’s confusing. And as a Gut Expert, I spend lots of time explaining to clients the differences between fibres and how each contributes to gut health. Whether you’re treating leaky gut, IBS, SIBO or some other digestive issue, it’s essential you know the WTF basics.
If your gut specialist hasn’t already posed the question, Are digestive enzymes causing your gut issues?, it’s time for you to either bring it to their attention or get a new gut specialist.
Seriously, this is how important digestive enzymes are to gut health.
If you’re reading this and wondering what on earth are digestive enzymes, that’s okay as I’m here to help. Let’s look at the facts.
Did you know that one of the BEST ways to help treat leaky gut is to minimise your red meat intake?
It’s true… but, before you make assumptions and think that the best Naturopath in Melbourne (a cute title given to me by my client this morning) is suggesting you become vegetarian – think again.
If you’ve ever stood in the probiotic section of a health shop or pharmacy and wondered which probiotic is right for you, maybe while feeling a little overwhelmed, you’re not alone.
As a Gut Expert and Naturopath in Melbourne, I regularly find myself discussing probiotics and their relationship to gut health, as well as what the differences are between the hundreds of probiotic products on the market. It’s never a quick conversation as this is a complex topic, but it is one that’s worth taking the time to cover because, as a Gut Expert, I want every one of my clients to feel empowered throughout their gut healing journey.
If you recently visited a Gut Specialist who questioned whether you really have Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), please don’t be offended. Your practitioner likely has your best interests at heart, as 60-80% of IBS cases are misdiagnosed and likely attributed to a different, yet similar, digestive condition.
Did you know, how you eat can completely change the health of your digestive system?
Yes that’s right, HOW you eat rather WHAT you eat can significantly improve bloating, indigestion, bowel motions and overall gut health.
Often we get caught up in changing the food we are eating, removing gluten, dairy, FODMAPS, grains or fruit from the diet, when the real issue is the way you are eating.
