Phaze Natural Therapies provides specialist naturopathic, nutritional and lifestyle advice for digestive health issues through gut healing protocols.
"All disease begins in the gut" - Hippocrates. This statement was made more than 2000 years ago and today it has never been as true. We are not only what we eat, we are how we digest and absorb food. Toxins in our food, water and environment; stress; poor diets; alcohol consumption; and antibiotic use have contributed to an imbalance of intestinal flora. This has lead to people experiencing those standard digestive symptoms such as constipation, diarrhoea, gas, bloating, abdominal pain, reflux, heartburn, burping and IBS. However, it goes a lot deeper in the gut than that. We develop multiple nutritional deficiencies (i.e. anaemia) and a compromised immune system.
Autoimmune disease affects 1 in 20 people. Isn't this astonishing? There are over 80 autoimmune diseases with coeliac disease, Hashimoto's thyroid disease, Grave's thyroid disease, rheumatoid arthritis and type 1 diabetes being the most common. This all has to do with 'leaky gut'. Further information can be found in this link.
Around 100 million neurons are embedded in the gut wall, including 95% of the body's serotonin (happy hormone) is found in the gut. Therefore, poor gut health plays a major role in the nervous system, contributing to conditions such as anxiety, depression, ADHD and learning issues (dyslexia, dyspraxia).
One particular diet, the GAPS diet has been proven to work with these debilitating symptoms and can lead to a life without prescription medication. By removing aggravating foods and environmental toxins from our diet and lifestyle and incorporating nourishing foods and supplements, the gut will heal and heal most health issues.
So whether you are experiencing symptoms with your digestive system, autoimmune conditions, mental and emotional issues or just want a gut health check Phaze Natural Therapies can certainly help.
