The anti-ageing effects of the Viva-Mayr Clinic gut healing protocols

Science reveals a symbiotic relationship between a healthy gut and our brain, our immune system, and our skin. Understanding what is happening beneath the skin, at the gut level, impacts how the skin and body function, age and respond to treatments.

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) are two common gut conditions that often cause confusion and frustration.

Why we all need probiotics – The many reasons why Live Bacteria is our ‘hero product’

I think many of you already know the story of how developing my own range of digestive and gut health supplements came about, but perhaps you don’t know why probiotics feature so prominently in my range.

Can probiotics reduce period pain/PMS?

Our bodies are a lot different at age 50 than they are at 17. Our hair changes colour, our skin looks different, our metabolism slows down – and our periods change too.
