Gut Health

Did you know?

Did you know that digestive issues such as constipation, diarrhea, heartburn, and bloating can interfere with nutrient absorption? If we do not adequately absorb nutrients from the food we eat, it can lead to nutrient deficiencies that can cause dysfunction in almost every system in the body.


What is the condition?

Digestive symptoms result from inflammation and damage to the gastrointestinal tract. Inflammation may be caused by poor diet, food sensitivities, infection, medication, imbalanced gut microbiome, stress, conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn’s etc), and more.



Symptoms of poor gut health include diarrhea, constipation, heartburn, reflux, bloating, cramping, flatulence etc. Poor gut health can lead to nutrient deficiencies which may present as fatigue, low immune function, poor wound healing, muscle & joint pain, mental health & mood disturbances, weakened hair skin and nails.  



Finding the cause of gastrointestinal symptoms is the essential first step on the path to resolving them. Pathology, functional testing, food diary and elimination diets may be utilised to identify the causes and drivers of digestive issues. Treatment strategies include dietary changes (specific diets or food elimination), lifestyle suggestion and gut healing support with specific nutrients.


How can KYH help?

A holistic approach to gut health aims to identify the causes of gastrointestinal dysfunction, manage the symptoms and support long term healing.
