    IBD

    Manage Crohn’s and Colitis successfully (IBD)

    Did you know that inflammatory bowel disease also known as IBD is sometimes called an ‘invisible illness’ because symptoms like abdominal pain and fatigue are difficult for others to see? Plus, people with the condition often feel embarrassed or hesitant to talk about it. IBD can be painful, debilitating, and many people suffer in silence […]

    Stress & Gut Health

    Reduce your stress to heal your gut – Deborah’s story

    I would like to share the following review from Deborah, as her struggles with her digestive health highlight the scientifically proven correlation between levels of stress and quality of life; more specifically in the context of gut health and gastrointestinal related disorders, which are suffered by 40% of us at any given time. Deborah had […]

    Live Bacteria and For Women

    Live Bacteria or For Women – which probiotic is right for you?

    When I developed my Live Bacteria capsules, I chose strains of bacteria that were the perfect match to help resolve IBS symptoms, painful bloating, constipation, and acid reflux.  Having worked in my IBS, digestive health and gut disorders clinic for a couple of decades, I knew exactly which strains of friendly bacteria were the most […]

    Absorb - Just for Tummies

    You are what you absorb!

    We all know, well at the least the gardeners amongst us know, that the strength of a tree does not lie in its limbs or branches, but in its roots.  Every persistent malfunction in the digestive system will, sooner or later, eventually impact the entire body, in the same way that a disease in a […]

    Lamb Stew

    Mouth-watering low FODMAP Lamb Stew recipe

    If you’ve suffered with IBS, you will probably know what FODMAP stands for. If not, it’s a catchy acronym – fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides and polyols – more commonly known as carbohydrates! It’s not uncommon for people struggling with IBS to visit their GP anywhere from four to ten times in an attempt to get […]

    Colon Hydrotherapy

    Watch our informative video about all things colon hydrotherapy!

    I always love hosting our Facebook Live events, and the most recent discussion about colon hydrotherapy was no different. It is after all one of my favourite subjects – the 90 minutes just flew by! I was joined by fellow colon hydrotherapist, Jane Bush, and the two of us were in our element as we […]

    Perfect Balance Kit - Zoe

    No more IBS flare-ups for Zoe – thanks to the Perfect Balance Kit

    I’d like to share this wonderful testimonial that I received from 27-year-old IBS sufferer, Zoe, recently: “I have completed the Charcoal cleanse, which made me feel so fresh and happy.  My stools were black, and I had wind, but this really wasn’t an issue.  I started on the supplements in the 30-day Balance Kit straight […]

    Detoxing

    Detoxing – What’s it all about? (Video)

    Spring brings new growth and regeneration, which makes it a great time to refresh our systems by carrying out a detox. In fact, according to the Chinese, spring is the ideal time to cleanse and nourish the liver. To welcome the warmer days of spring, I thought that detoxing would be the perfect subject matter […]

    IBS Caused by Food Poisoning

    Is food poisoning the cause of your IBS? 

    Food poisoning is obviously no fun. As the symptoms rage on, you worry that you will never recover. In most cases, the acute symptoms of food poisoning do pass within 24 hours and people can return to their regular lives. But for roughly one in four food-poisoning sufferers, symptoms can linger – and linger and linger. […]

    IBS Awareness Month

    April is IBS Awareness Month

    If you have Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), you are not alone – IBS is common with prevalence estimated at 10% –15%. Yet many people remain undiagnosed and unaware that their symptoms indicate a medically recognised disorder. Since 1997, April has been recognised as IBS Awareness Month. During this time, both conventional and complementary health practitioners, […]

    Tummy Tea

    The power of complementary therapy

    I was thrilled to see that one of the awareness weeks in March is National Complementary Therapy Week.  It’s a relatively new addition to the calendar, having first been celebrated in 2020, and aims to shine a light on all forms of natural health and the many therapies carried out by complementary health professionals. I […]

    Prolapses

    Let’s talk about prolapses – Watch the video!

    For those of you who missed it, my most recent Facebook Live was all about prolapses. You can watch the full discussion here: For this live, I was joined by Clare Makin, a pelvic floor specialist and yoga teacher, who experienced bladder leakage after the birth of her son. Wishing she had received more support, […]

    Gut Health - Emily's Story

    21 or 101 – look after your gut at ANY age!

    When you reach a certain age, digestive problems can be a common occurrence. I’m sure you’ve all heard your older relatives or friends say something like, “I can’t eat the way I used to…” or “Rich food doesn’t agree with me”. However, digestive problems don’t always wait until our later years to strike. It’s becoming […]
