Gut health can be difficult to understand, so let’s break down the basics…

Fundamentally, our gut is made up of both good and bad bacteria. Our job is to keep them balanced so they can work together to keep our bodies healthy.

How Can A Dietitian Help You With Gut Health?

Our gut health dietitian can help you understand the digestive and gut symptoms you may be experiencing, and how these may relate to your dietary patterns and the foods you are eating.

We can then develop simple and effective nutritional strategies to manage your symptoms.

As we understand that gut health can sometimes be more than just nutrition, we will also discuss other important factors such as your sleep and stress levels.

We can help you to:

  • Understand and manage your triggers for digestive concerns such as excessive gas, bloating or pain after eating
  • Understand and manage your food intolerances
  • Provide you with nutritional strategies to improve your bowel movements and help you understand how these relate to certain foods you eat
  • Develop dietary habits and patterns that work to improve your overall gut health – improving the balance between good and bad bacteria in your gut
  • Understand how gut health is connected to your mood, skin, hormones and more

Gut Health

Why is gut health so important?

Gut health is vital to overall health and wellbeing, as the gut plays an important role in a variety of functions in our bodies, such as:

  • The regulation of hormones
  • Our immune system
  • Absorption of nutrients from our food
  • Our mood

Our gut is made up of both good and bad bacteria, and a balance between these is crucial. Dietary patterns and habits have been linked to contributing to this balance, so the foods you eat are fundamental in creating this balance between the good and bad bacteria.

The importance of maintaining a balance between your good and bad bacteria goes far beyond simply having good gut health, it can impact you daily through your mood. This is what we call the ‘gut-brain axis’.

Basically, your gut communicates directly with your brain, hence the saying ‘go with your gut feeling’. Feeling butterflies in your stomach when you are nervous about something is just one example of this gut-brain connection! Having good gut health has been strongly linked to mental health due to this gut-brain connection, so eating foods that enhance your gut health is fundamental to your wellbeing.
