The Complete Gut Clean:

 

Gut – Brain – Skin – Axis

 

Most of my clients with food intolerance, skin conditions and mood disorders are most likely to have some digestive incompetence as a causative factor. Optimal digestion and gut wall stability protects the body against the entry of large food particles into the bloodstream and the subsequent development undesirable health outcomes.  When a healthy diet is just not enough, a ‘Complete Gut Clean’ may be the answer.

Neurotransmitters are chemical substances that send nerve impulses. These nerve impulses send chemical messengers to your brain which affect mood and behavior. All the neurotransmitters found in the brain have also been found in the digestive system.

One particular neurotransmitter serotonin, also known as our ‘happy’ chemical, plays a role in mood, migraines, concentration, memory, insomnia and appetite.

While it plays such a vital role in our brain chemistry, approximately 95% of serotonin is actually found in the gastrointestinal system, our GUT! This might explain why you can get a nervous belly.
