Good digestive health is the key to a healthy life but all too often people take their digestion for granted until they start to experience unpleasant digestive symptoms such as bloating, pain, gas, diarrhoea, constipation and malabsorption issues.
An unhealthy gut is linked to almost every health condition from diabetes to depression, obesity, chronic fatigue syndrome, autoimmune and behavioural disorders. The human gut contains 10 times more bacteria than all the human cells in the entire body, with over 400 known diverse bacterial species. This collective composition of bacteria promotes normal gastrointestinal function, provides protection from infection, regulates metabolism and comprises more than 75% of our immune system.
Digestive problems may arise from stress, immune challenges, food intolerances and poor eating or lifestyle habits. No matter what part of the body is being treated, the importance of digestion cannot be ignored as this is the very thing that provides us with the nutrition that the body requires to heal itself. Adequate nutrition allows us to make neurotransmitters and hormones in the right proportions, makes us resistant to infections and gives us the energy we require to meet the stress of daily life.
Once the digestive disturbance is understood, Dr Gareau will treat the root cause of your symptoms through a personalized gut restore program which includes herbal medicine, enzymes, probiotics and nutritional supplements together with a comprehensive diet. Upon completion of the program you will be able to digest, assimilate and metabolise your food effectively without digestive disturbances, as well as having more energy and many other health benefits.
