Reset your Digestion
Here at Lucy Childerley Clinic I regularly see the impact a stressful lifestyle and poor diet can have on digestive health. I work with men and women to improve their digestive health and overall well-being.
You are what you absorb!
Your gut is an amazing place where you breakdown and absorb all your food. It is home to your own unique microbiome which varies from one person to the next: no two people are the same! When any part of the gut is not functioning optimally it can have wide reaching consequences for your overall wellbeing.
I start by investigating possible causative factors, then I support the digestive function by recommending foods, supplements and lifestyle changes that can help soothe, calm, repair and provide diversity to the digestive tract. I also address emotional health and the impact stress may be having.
Symptoms of poor digestion include:
- Acid reflux and heartburn
- IBS- affecting 25% of the population
- Nutrient deficiencies
- Diarrhoea and constipation
- Bloating, wind and burping
- Stomach cramps
- Leaky gut and Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)
- Food sensitivities
- Gastroenteritis, Crohns, coeliac, diverticulitis
Effective Functional Testing for Optimum Digestive Health
I can gather a lot of information from your case history but I may also recommend running some functional tests to actually see what is happening in the gut. Specific to digestive health, I run stool tests, food intolerance tests and a range of genetic tests. Go to Functional Testing to find out more about the tests I carry out.
“I had been suffering with digestive issues for about 4 years which were gradually becoming more debilitating. I had regular bloating, wind and abdominal pain, my energy was zapped and my mood was starting to deteriorate. It was starting to impact my quality of my life and I was relying on Omeprazole to bring me temporary relief. This is when Lucy designed me an eating plan to support the root cause of the problem. I was prepared to do anything so I followed the plan to the T. In just 2 months ALL of my symptoms had gone, I had lost weight, the water retention had gone and my energy was the best it had been in years. I would recommend Lucy’s plan to anyone who is suffering with digestive disorders. It has turned my life around naturally and I can honestly say I feel 7 years younger!“
