HOW WE HELP

HOW WE HELP

We take gut health seriously!

Our approach to complex digestive problems is guided by principles and philosophy of Nutritional Therapy, Functional medicine and Naturopathy. 

Nutritional Therapy uses diet and lifestyle therapeutic interventions to manage health problems. Nutritional Therapists are experts in the use of therapeutic diets, nutritional supplements and lifestyle interventions.The principles of Nutritional Therapy  are underpinned by Functional Medicine. Functional medicine is holistic systems based approach. Unlike medicine which uses medication to simply manage digestive symptoms. The goal of functional medicine is to find the root cause of your digestive symptoms and to create dietary & lifestyle therapeutic plan unique to you. This approach can produce excellent results.

Naturopathy is a traditional European system of healthcare. Naturopath’s use a variety of natural therapeutic interventions to help manage digestive problems. These natural interventions are safe and effective. At the IBS clinic we have found a multi-intervention approach can produce extremely effective results. Some of the leading IBS and SIBO experts in the world are Naturopathic practitioners.

Bodywork

Chronic muscular imbalances can also lead to postural problems. An imbalance in your muscular/skeletal system can affect how your digestive system functions. This in turn can worsen digestive problems such as IBS. At the IBS clinic we use therapeutic massage, lymphatic pumps, muscle energy and neuromuscular techniques to help resolve muscular issues and improve digestion. We also work directly on the digestive system with various massage techniques.
