Garry Borman - Digestive Issues and IBS
Servicing areaVictoria Point and all of the Redlands, Queensland
Up to 20% of the population suffers IBS in any given calendar year, so you are far from alone ( that’s over 5 million people in Australia alone !)
The unfortunate part of being one of the 20% is that regular medicine is not very good at dealing with IBS or other digestive issues. Left alone, IBS can be quite a debilitating condition, restricting you from normal daily activities.
IBS tends to be more a diagnosis via exclusion ie you don’t have celiac disease, you don’t have Crohns disease, you don’t have ulcerative colitis etc. BUT here are some of the things that can be causing your discomfort ( or any combination of )
Non-coeliac gluten sensitivity (NCGS)
Could it even be an unhappy gallbladder?
The GP approach
You will normally get a series of tests done, with the most common being endoscopy and colonoscopy. This will identify any of the potential diseases and possibility of a hiatus hernia.
Your GP will often prescribe acid reducing drugs as an initial approach to reducing your symptoms, but these drugs are recommended for no more than 3 x 14 periods per year. The longer you are on these drugs the more the damage and the more deficient in nutrients you become
Our aim is to have you feeling GREAT again and we employ a 5 step process to get you there.
Get to the bottom of what is causing the problems
Remove the offending foods/bacteria etc
Enjoy real foods
Alter your gut flora to become balanced again
Transform your life!
The first part of this process is to find out what foods you should and should not be eating. Our sensitivity test covers over 500 foods that are readily available. From here we can build a ‘do have’ foods list.
Next we will go through the whole digestive process with you and determine which areas are working well and which parts need support.
Once we have identified the problem area, we will implement the repair process and get things back on track.
One of the great things about the human body is that it wants to work correctly, so when we make improvements, these repairs should be for the long term and you won’t relapse as soon as you stop taking supplements.
