Gut health is vital for our overall health. Evidence shows direct links between gut dysbiosis and a vast range of health disorders such as allergies, food sensitivities, poor digestion, sub-clinical malnutrition, auto-immune disorders, autism, behavioural disorders, chronic pain, fatigue, joint pain, inflammation, arthritis, hormonal imbalance, headaches, bi-polar disorder, depression and cognitive difficulties.
The gut microbiota consists of 2-3kg of micro-organisms that play a vital role in protection of the gut lining. An imbalance in the microbiota leads to changes in the gut permeability, malabsorption of nutrients and increase in toxin levels. The ‘gut brain’ significantly affects immune function and levels of neurotransmitters in the body.
The balance for gut health is based on the Traditional Chinese Medicine approach. Kinesiology (muscle testing) is used as a valuable tool for accessing the innate intelligence of the body. Imbalances related to the meridian systems, energy distribution to various organs and the microbiota are balanced by working on acupressure points using various methods such as vibration (tuning forks), sound, pressure or myofascial release.
These balances are non-invasive and are be complementary to any other existing management regime a client may be on for gut health and auto-immune dysfunction.
