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.

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!

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 […]

Is food poisoning the cause of your IBS?

My most recent Facebook Live event featured a very special guest – my husband, Kevin. Earlier this year, following a 7-month delay due to Covid, Kevin’s bowel cancer screening test came back positive.  Kevin had to have a colonoscopy, followed by a procedure to have several polyps removed.  We wanted to highlight the importance of […]

What are probiotics? (Video)

What do they do, and why do we need them now more than ever! Research has shown that our gut microbes play a significant role in regulating our health, mental health and weight. When our good or ‘friendly’ gut bacteria are depleted, they not only won’t be able to fend off weight-inducing inflammation. They also […]

Is it IBS or ovarian cancer?

I’ve put this blog post together because women need to understand that one of the symptoms of ovarian cancer is bloating. Bloating that’s related to ovarian cancer may cause visible swelling in the abdomen and your belly might feel full, puffy, or hard. The problem is that if you’ve been diagnosed with IBS, how do […]

Why you need to use a dental ‘dam’ if you have IBS or IBD

Why you need to use a dental ‘dam’ if you have IBS or IBD.  I was in my clinic last week, carrying out colon hydrotherapy treatments on people of all ages, both sexes and from all walks of life, but with very similar symptoms mainly bloating, abdominal pain and constipation.
