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 have been struggling with your health and feeling like you have hit a wall in your progress or symptoms relapse sooner or later, you might have a case of leaky gut.
As you will soon understand, the health of your gut is one of the largest determinants of your overall health. Think of the gut as the trunk of the tree and the tree branches represent the systems of the body such as the skin, hormonal, energy, immune and nervous system.
Leaky gut is one of the biggest drivers of poor health I see in my patients. Whether you are experiencing gut specific issues, or you are struggling with a foggy brain, hormonal imbalances, food sensitivities or anxiety, you need to consider the health of your gut as part of what’s driving these issues.
To help you understand a bit more about leaky gut, I am answering seven questions you need to ask yourself to help make your gut healing journey easier.
