Did you know that your gut affects your brain so your mental health is directly affected by what you eat?

If you've been experiencing abdominal pain, discomfort, bloating, gas, tiredness or brain fog you may have poor digestion and suffering from an unhealthy gut. This can be caused by various factors, such as poor food quality, allergies, environmental irritants, pharmaceutical drugs or stress.

Kinesiology treatments are designed to help you balance your body's energy and gut health. By working together, we can identify the underlying causes and triggers, developing a personalised plan to promote more energy, greater vitality and motivation and mental clarity as well.

Gut healing

Heal, restore and promote wellbeing

Improvement and recovery can be supported through the Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) gut healing nutritional protocol benefitting very small children to adults, and the effects of gut dysbiosis are far-reaching. An unhealthy gut can cause a myriad of problems because 90% of all cells and genetic material in the human body is gut flora - a complex mass of microbes residing in your digestive system.

In a healthy person these are dominated by beneficial microbes in harmony with your body, making sure you are well-nourished, protected from pathogens and toxins with a healthy immune system.

In a GAPS person the gut flora is dominated by pathogenic microbes causing multiple health problems.


Feel good from the inside out

I usually don’t need reminding if I’ve been behaving badly. I know I need some help, and it can really put my life in perspective again!

I can be full of blame or shame and guilt, isolation or fear about my bad behavoir, or how I was treated. A big one as you get older, is how stupid you can feel around technology, or the clumsiness of menopause. It may be that we need to revisit painful trauma, childhood experiences or habitual patterns of behavoir. I use Health Kinesiology which uses muscle testing to ask the body what it needs to rebalance itself; it can balance your emotions and take the charge out of them, has ways to support your immune system and can find individual biochemical pathways that can make a huge difference.

Some of this may be connected to your physical organs and the story you're telling yourself diminishes considerably once I work on them. This is how I connect your issues with Chinese medicine (TCM); each organ is associated in TCM with a taste, a sound, an emotion and a season.

An injury or illness can make you feel less confident and a bit silly; you are in good company. The patterns in our lives can shape us or make us; luckily once we get to face them, they have a habit of becoming easier.

Please feel free to share any concerns or experiences you have related to your digestion; you probably know what stresses there are in your life, but don't realise how they are impacting your gut and therefore your brain. My aim is to assist you on your journey towards a more comfortable and balanced state of well-being.
