DIGESTION

ASK US ABOUT YOUR DIGESTION

I believe a happy gut is the cornerstone of health and has always been a focus at Shift. I view the gut as our ‘second brain’ and if your gut is healthy and happy – so to is your body and mind. I provide a holistic and effective approach to improving and rectifying your digestive problems, taking in to consideration the involvement of both physical and emotional symptoms.

I may help you with the following:

  • Bloating
  • Diarrhoea
  • Constipation
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Leaky gut
  • Food intolerances

I aim to provide insight into the causes of your conditions, and provide effective outcomes rather than just masking symptoms. In Chinese Medicine, our treatments are based on treating the root cause.

I also incorporate a mindful and positive approach in our treatments and can assist you in improving your relationship with food, and promote healthy eating habits.

ACUPUNCTURE

As I have said, I believe the gut is the ‘second brain’ and when it’s happy, so are our emotions (and visa versa). Emotional stress aggravates, and even causes digestive complaints; therefore I use acupuncture to settle and calm the emotions, which in turn calms and treats the gut.
Specific acupuncture points combined with infra red heat lamp over the belly, will boost digestion and promote it to flow smoothly again, this in turn may help relive indigestion, bloating, diarrhea and constipation.

FOOD ALLERGY TESTING

Where required, I am able to refer the client for a range of comprehensive tests such as food intolerance testing and stool testing which can provide more insight into digestive conditions.
