Digestive Health

Good digestion lies at the core of your wellbeing and has a profound effect on your health. Many people say that digestion goes from ‘chew to poo’, but it actually begins in your brain with thoughts about food. There can therefore be a multitude of factors that contribute to digestive issues, including anxiety, stress, dysbiosis, dietary and lifestyle factors, genetics, hormone imbalance, autoimmune conditions and more.

People with digestive problems know these can interfere in so many other areas of their lives. It’s important to address any problems you have with digestive health, prevent them or catch them early. This is particularly important if you have a family history of bowel cancer or digestive orders.
