A message from Linda
In my 30 years of experience in clinical practice, I have seen an increase in the number of people who suffer with digestive and gut disorders. Invariably they’ve tried many different medications and suffered the anxiety and stress of having x-rays and other tests carried out at the hospital, to be told that there’s ‘nothing wrong’, and nothing further can be done to help them.
“It’s my belief that everyone struggling with IBS, constipation, digestive health issues and many other gut-related disorders can be helped. My aim is to build a safe, supportive and caring community that enables people to access quality information and expertise that will make real positive differences to their digestive and gut health as well as their overall health and wellbeing, and that of their families, friends and communities.”

Thanks to the advice and support that she received via Tummy Talk, one member, Sue was able to get the root of her long-standing constipation. She was kind enough to say this:
“Since joining ‘Tummy Talk’, I have turned a corner. I now poo 2-3 times per day instead of once every 3 weeks. I have one happy bottom!”

A few interesting facts:
- You are more bacteria than human. You have 10 trillion human cells and 100 trillion bacteria.
- The digestive tract, all 10 or so metres, running from your mouth to your anus, including stomach, pancreas, liver, gall bladder, small and large intestine is critical to your overall health, responsible for digestion of food, absorption of nutrients and elimination of wastes.
- 80% of your immunity is located in your gut, which explains why, when your gut and the gut microbiome are out of balance, irritations, inflammations, infections and ‘leaky’ gut can manifest and you can develop all manner of diseases within your gut and in other organs and systems of the body.
- Research is now showing that the bacteria in your gut can pre-dispose you to developing obesity, dementia diseases, Type II diabetes, auto-immune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, eczema and depression.
