IBS has become one of the most common health concerns that people come to us with. It is an umbrella term for a variety of symptoms including diarrhoea and/or constipation, abdominal pain, bloating, flatulence or wind. A Gut and Digestive test can be important to ascertain if there is a gut overgrowth of bacteria, yeast, fungus or parasites. We have found that IBS can be a combination of these factors, hence the alternating constipation and diarrhoea. The toxins from these microorganisms can become systemic and cause havoc around the body resulting in many secondary symptoms such as fatigue, CFS, irritability, anxiety, feeling ‘hung over’, fuzzy headed, dry skin, eczema, psoriasis, reflux, indigestion, lack of focus, poor memory, headaches, sinusitis, chest infections, muscles aches, fibromyalgia, joint pain or arthritis, fungal infections, thrush, infertility, ADHD and many more.
Gut and digestive issues are often underlying most food intolerances and this is why it is paramount to always work on a gut protocol for food intolerances.
As a functional Nutritionist, it is Hilary’s role is to find out which underlying factors are contributing to these symptoms, eradicate the culprits, rebalance the body and optimise it with functional nutrition strategies. When this is achieved, your symptoms can start to subside and you are left feeling healthier, lighter, revitalised, clearer headed, focused and calmer. To help you to optimise your results, a biochemical test may be recommended.
For over 20 years, Hilary has specialised in gut and digestive issues such as indigestion, reflux, bloating, flatulence, stomach pains, constipation, severe diarrhoea, abdominal pain, IBS and inflammatory conditions such as IBD, Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis and colitis. She has successfully helped thousands of people with all of these symptoms to live full and active lives. These conditions can also have an effect on weight, with either weight loss or weight gain.
“As you know, I couldn't even function, I had to rush to the toilet every half an hour and that meant I couldn't go out. I became isolated and you were my only hope as my doctor said it was just stress. It's incredible what you uncovered and how you helped me and now I can go out when I want. Thank you, I got my life back.” Susannah, London
