   Gut and Microbiome Health 


Are you experiencing ongoing bloating, gut discomfort, fatigue, joint aches & pains, low mood, headaches?  These types of symptoms are often have their root cause in the health of the gut microbiome 

Research is now exploding in the area of the gut microbiome and we now know how fundamental our gut microbes are to pretty much all aspects of our health. 


The microbes in our gut communicate with our immune system, with our brain and they will also impact on our energy levels.  More harmful organisms in the gut or 'pathobionts' can secrete toxins -chemicals which impact our mood and can cause inflammation in the joints and muscles. Unfortunately,  over the generations, the health of our microbiome has taken a big hit due to the use of antibiotics, medications, stress, poor diet.  


The good news is that there is a lot that you can do to improve the health of your gut and the microbes that live there.  It is not a 'one approach fits all' and very much depends on your own individual health history, exposures, genetics, diet and much more. So it's important to look carefully at all the contributing factors and if possible carry out a microbiome test

If you would like to find out more about this and how I can help you get to know and improve the health of your gut microbes, you can book in a 30 minute free consultation and from there you can decide whether you want to dig deeper and go ahead with some microbiome testing.

What my clients say

'I have been suffering with Long Covid for 6 months, with no real improvement in my various symptoms and conditions. After taking on board Kate's advice within 2 weeks I noticed a huge reduction in ALL of my symptoms. For the first time in 6 months I feel like I now have control of my life again!!! She has offered sound advice and continues to guide me along the path to recovery! The two words 'thank you' are simply not enough to show my gratitude for what she has done to help me!' (Doctify Verified Review)

'All I need to say is that I am so glad that I met Kate.  She is very approachable and caring; and always happy to reply to my emails whenever I have a question.  Although I am slightly overweight, I went to see Kate not for weight loss, but for nutrition advice regarding eating more healthily.  She supplied a marvellous list of foods to consume and to avoid, and gave advise about foods that I was not even aware to question.  Most importantly of all, she identified that while I am not allergic to wheat as such, it does upset my gut.  Her advice to not consume any wheat products have resulted in less overall inflammation, no more irritable bowel syndrome symptoms and weight loss!'
