Treatment For Digestive Disorders
Our gut plays countless essential roles contributing to our body’s overall health, and poor gastrointestinal (GI) health can be the root cause for many other health issues. Digestive disorders, including conditions like Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Crohn’s Disease, cause discomfort in our GI tract and can be long term problems that change how you are living your life.
Diets low in fibre and low levels of exercise are common contributing factors to digestive disorders, whilst high amounts of stress, dairy products and travel can also play a role. Common symptoms of digestive disorders include cramping, bloating, abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhoea, rectal bleeding, fatigue and weight loss.
According to Hippocrates, “all disease begins in the gut” and studies have shown time and time again that the health of our gastrointestinal system is crucial to our overall health and wellbeing. Many symptoms of digestive disorders can be managed through a controlled diet and tailored advice from registered Dietitians.
