Many people suffer common gut conditions without even realising it. These conditions can cause a number of symptoms that are often overlooked, like:
- Weight gain
Human beings have known for many, many years that the gut is important for the digestion of food and the absorption of food. But we’re now on the threshold of a major revolution in the way we think about the gut and its relevance to our health. Only now are we beginning to realise the marvelous complexity of the gut and its functions. The functioning of the gut not only governs the absorption of nutrients, but also modulates the immune system, influences brain function and can also affect other parts of the body, such as the skin, muscles and joints.
In our practitioners Dr Phelps, Dr Lee, and Jaime’s new book ‘The Mystery Gut’, they explain the latest science behind gut health, how to work out what’s going on, and what to do about it. Dr Phelps, Dr Lee and Jaime decided to write the book after seeing firsthand the dramatic improvement in people’s lives when they address their ‘mystery gut’.
Call us to discuss how you could rejuvenate your ‘mystery gut’. Contact details here.
