In Part 1 we looked at what can go wrong in the gut, and some of the causes. In Part 2 we'll look at some practical ways to improve your gut health.
Probiotics and Prebiotics – what are they?
This area of gut health is probably one of the most exciting to arise in recent years, and the research into it is ongoing. There is so much we don’t know about the gut, its microbiota, its link to the brain and the rest of the body, and how it impacts on the rest of our health, but big steps are being taken all of the time to help us to understand this fascinating area more thoroughly.
Hippocrates said that “all disease begins in the gut. Whilst this isn’t 100% true (think of genetic disorders), I do believe that it is almost correct. I have a very big interest in gut health in my work, not least because I suffered with problems for many years myself, but also because I am yet to see a client who comes to see me who hasn’t got gut health issues to some extent (even if they are blissfully unaware of them!).
