Our Gut Health specialists use nutrition, lifestyle, and functional medicine to help you overcome your digestive symptoms and optimise overall health.

Why we use a Functional Medicine approach to optimise gut health.

Between 2008-2010, Steve was suffering with ongoing health complaints. All of which were going unresolved through conventional methods and not responsive to simply changes in diet and lifestyle. Steve was suffering with ongoing digestive symptoms, fatigue, immune issues, lowered sex drive and mood fluctuations.

In 2010 Steve was fortunate enough to find an approach to healthcare known as Functional Medicine. At that time, he began working with one of the UKs first practitioners. After running appropriate lab tests, discovering two chronic infections, and implementing a treatment strategy with the guidance of his Functional Medicine Practitioner, Steve was able to overcome these challenges. At that point, Steve felt the need to implement this approach into his clinical practice and underwent years of mentorship and education to become an early adopter of this methodology.

Steve has seen first-hand the impact that digestive health has on overall health and performance and has gone on to work with hundreds of clients, optimising their digestive health and subsequently overall well-being.

From a one-man-band, we now have a team of practitioners. These include nutritionists and functional medicine practitioners that specialise in digestive health, who themselves have also personally experienced and overcome digestive health complaints. We also have supportive mind-body therapists because of the strong link between stress, mental health, and digestive health. Where required we can integrate our practitioners to support your digestive health goals.

How Our Nutritionists Can Support Your Digestive Health

How our Nutritionists can support your gut health

Our digestive system, from mouth to colon, hosts a complex ecosystem of microbes, collectively known as the gut microbiome. The diversity and balance of this microbiome is crucial for maintaining overall health, with diet playing a significant role in its composition.

Highly processed, fatty, or sugary foods typical in a modern diet can disrupt the gut microbiome, leading to conditions like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and even contribute to mental health issues.

For many people it is about adopting healthy eating practices, whereas for others, they seem to get worse digestive symptoms the “healthier” they eat.

Finding what nutritional strategy is right for you at this moment in time is just one area we can support you with. Our goal over time is to optimise your gut health to allow you to explore and enjoy all foods, creating a positive relationship to food.

Unfortunately, digestive health issues can often create a very poor relationship to food. Food is often seen as the enemy as it triggers symptoms. Whilst certain food choices can sometimes be the underlying cause for your digestive issues, often our reaction to those foods is caused by something else underlying. This could be an imbalance of microbes, infections, overgrowths, poor motility, stress, hormonal imbalances, poor digestion, and autoimmunity to name a few.

How we use laboratory tests to improve your digestive health

For those with chronic digestive health complaints, we always recommend speaking with your GP/gastroenterologist and going through the appropriate investigations to rule out red flags and specific digestive health conditions.

If the above draws a blank or the final diagnosis/recommendations leaves you feeling lost and still managing the same old symptoms, we are here to help. We can help you look more deeply into the underlying causes of a diagnosis of IBS, GERD, IBD, Polyps and more.

We are partnered up with specialist digestive health and microbiome labs to offer more advanced stool tests, SIBO breath testing, blood tests and more to help understand what imbalances we can better manage. This allows you to be more proactive in your approach, rather than reactive. Adapting diet and lifestyle according to the results and potentially even naturally treating noted imbalances that may be causing your symptom/diagnosis.

“I started seeing Steve as I kept getting infections on different parts of my body that would literally incapacitate me. Steve was fantastic he quickly had a barrage of tests done on me and found the problem straight away. I was put on a strict protocol for the first 6 weeks and then follow up protocols from there. 6 months later white blood cells are back and no infections….. PLUS I dropped to 10% body fat at 95kg!”

“6 weeks on and after a 30 day modified elimination diet and supplement protocol, I can confirm that I have a flat tummy and no bloating, I am going to the toilet on a regular basis and sleep between 6 and 8 hours a night, my aches and pains have gone and have lost a stone. I feel amazing and it is all down to Steve’s dedication and commitment to get to the root of my problem.”
