RECOVER YOUR HEALTH
“All disease begins with the gut” – Hippocrates
A compromised gut flora can cause mucosal permeability in the intestine. The small intestine absorbs nutrients from food and passes them to the blood stream as amino acids, sugars and fats. If the lining of the small intestine is damaged, it may become permeability – meaning larger particles could potentially pass through to the blood stream and abdomen.
Some possible causes include: Celiac Disease, candida infection, gut infections, overseas travel infections, and enzyme deficiencies, stress, overuse of antibiotics and poor diet.
What you can do….
Our gut is full of “good” and friendly bacteria that help us properly break down and digest our food. They help keep our gut in check and prevent ‘bad’ bacteria from overgrowth. Unfortunately, these friendly bacteria can be depleted and disrupted by taking antibiotics, steroids, acid-blocking medications, eating a poor diet, and many other factors.
Digestive enzymes are plant or microbial-based supplements that support the breakdown, absorption, and utilisation of macro nutrients. Taken with meals, they work with the body’s own reduced supply of enzymes to achieve maximum digestion and support intestinal repair mechanisms.
Stomach Acid and Intestinal Lining
Stomach Acid creates poor digestion and heartburn, which can be assisted with Natural Herbs. Its important to support the body’s natural processes for maintaining the mucosal lining of the stomach and duodenum. We have the supplements and food recommedations which help repair damage to the Gut / linings, assisting regrowth and repair and reversing damage.
Constipation / Diarrhea
These are common with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. We provide a multipurpose supplement that can be used for digestive relief. It eases the inflammation in the stomach lining, heals ulcers, and treats both diarrhea and constipation by creating a protective lining on the digestive tract, improves peristaltic movement and recolonizes good gut bacteria.
The liver is the filter for the blood and as the pathogens die the liver must work harder to clean the blood. Those with a comppromised gut flora often feel nauseas and tired due to a sluggish liver. We can help with this detoxifying process for you.
Alkalise the Body
An acid body creates inflammation and a breeding ground for Pathogens in the Gut. We have specific herbs to enhance the kidneys and assist with alkalising the body.
Absorb – Improve with Multivitamin Support for energy and repair of Cells
While the gut ecology is compromised, essential vitamins and minerals are not being absorbed by the small intestine. Some vitamins may not be good enough; our chelated vitamins are better able to be absorbed by the stomach first.
Immunity can be compromised with a compromisedgut creating: Asthma, heartburn, reflux, skin irritations and other related inflammatory conditions throughout the body. We have a range of products to boost your immune system to help recover your health.
