GUT HEALTH: Gut health is the most crucial aspect of wellness. 70% of our immune system relates to the gut. If your gut isn’t healthy, you can’t access adequate nutrition from your food, fight off disease or sustain a comfortable homoeostasis. Cath can give you advice about steps you can take to improve your gut health and thus your overall vitality and well being.
FOOD SENSITIVITY TESTING: a simple blood test can reveal which foods you should consume more of and which foods are causing an inflammatory response in your body and need to be avoided. Sufferers of inflammatory diseases such as asthma, eczema, arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, ADHD and more can experience relief of symptoms simply by changing their diet to exclude inflammatory-causing foods.
WEIGHT LOSS is not as simple as calories in / calories out. There are numerous other factors that can determine how your body holds onto or metabolises fat. Poor digestion, hormonal imbalance, inappropriate food choices, sleep patterns, infections and toxicity can all affect your metabolism and hence your weight. Ask Cath about how some of these issues may be hijacking your efforts to lose weight and get help to fix the problem.
Poor gut function accompanied by nutrient deficient food can lead to mineral deficiency. Today’s soils are depleted of many essential nutrients and often toxic in other elements. Nutritional supplements are sometimes necessary to achieve wellness. Cath uses scientific testing, Oligoscan, to determine if you need any additional nutritional support to help you be your best.
