Gut health

Belching. Bloating. Belly fat. Constipation. Stomach cramps. Acid reflux. And more. Thousands of our clients are now symptom-free confirming IMI’s unrivalled expertise in gut health.

Digestive issues are a common concern. Living inside your gut are around 300 to 500 different species of bacteria. Most of the bacteria are incredibly beneficial; only some are harmful. It’s this delicate balance that helps to maintain optimal health and wellness.

Unfortunately, many factors can upset the balance, like food intolerances and allergies, antibiotics, environmental toxins, stress and insomnia. An imbalance in the gut can impair its ability to perform effectively, harming your immune system and causing inflammation. We can help you find the root cause of your gut issue and restore your good health.

Often clients come to us to help with easy-to-identify digestive ailments. Flatulence. Constipation. Diarrhea. Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Bad breath. Food intolerances and allergies. To name but a few. Our experienced naturopaths can help to determine the cause of your condition and put a sustainable plan in place to heal your gut.

Sometimes inflammation can manifest in the unlikeliest places. Research reveals a surprising list of physical and mental conditions that can be caused by an unhealthy gut. Acne, hayfever, eczema, migraines, obesity, chronic fatigue, and joint pain can be a result of an unhealthy gut.

The list of illnesses that aren’t caused by gut health but are exacerbated by it makes for exhaustive reading. Scientific evidence confirms depression, arthritis, Alzheimer’s Disease, and Parkinson’s Disease, for example, can all be further aggravated by a poor digestive system. This makes sense given the gut is home to 70% of your immune system.

Having supported multiple clients with chronic conditions, we’ll help to boost your gut health and ease your debilitating symptoms.

Is your gut the culprit? Trust our experienced naturopaths to find out. After an initial assessment and careful analysis of your medical history, your naturopath can recommend relevant diagnostic tests to unearth your gut issues.

Food intolerances. Bacterial Overgrowth. Leaky Gut. Gut inflammation. Parasites. And more. Whatever the causes of your health challenge, IMI’s goal is to discover and heal them, and work hand-in-hand with you to help you achieve improved health.

Committed to your long-term wellbeing, your naturopath will devise a holistic, sustainable solution tailored to your unique needs. In addition to nourishing herbs and supplements to bring your gut health back in balance, they may recommend natural treatments and complementary therapies, such as lifestyle and dietary changes, naturopathic supplements and personalised herbs.
