Our digestive tract is recognised as a key component of our overall state of vibrant wellbeing. As a nutritional therapist, I work on a one‐to‐one basis with my clients to support their gastrointestinal optimal health and function.
I understand that the homeostatic equilibrium between microbes in the gut lumen of humans is required to ensure optimal gastrointestinal health. Gut microbiota aid food digestion and absorption, and inhibit the development of pathogenic bacteria.
Alterations in these ratios may lead to a change in gastrointestinal function and health. Nutritional therapists look to support optimal ecological homeostasis in the gastric lumen through the personalised use of foods, food constituents and biological agents (probiotics).
