How to treat gut problems

Unfortunately, for many, IBS and gut concerns have no long term cure and therefore treatment focuses on minimising symptoms. 

Symptom control is two fold:

Our Gut Health products can be used in conjunction to help. Eliminate - used to minimise food triggers, and Alleviate - to help ease gut symptoms.

Step 1 - Use Eliminate Meal Replacement

to replace 1, 2 or all 3 meals. This gives the gut a chance to rest by minimising food triggers (FODMAPs).

Step 2 - Add Alleviate

fibre supplement to help minimise gut symptoms.

You can continue using both products in conjunction for as long as required.

Why is Gut Health important?

Our gut plays a critical role in many of our body’s functions and our overall health.  While its primary role is to digest food and absorb nutrients, the microbiome of the gut also impacts immunity, heart health and metabolism, as well as being the epicentre of our gut-brain axis - which affects mood, cognition and energy.

Poor gut health can lead to unpleasant and painful symptoms and trying to manage bowel urgency, wind and pain can also cause worry and embarrassment.

When our gut microbiome is out of balance, it can also affect our mental acuity.  Brain fog, low mood and tiredness are all symptoms that something might be out of balance in our gut.  Doctors are now confident that digestive health is integral for our overall health and well being.

Backed by medicine

With so many patients struggling with gut related problems, and an increasing understanding of how important our gut microbiome is to our overall wellbeing,  Dr Patrick and the HealthFx team set out to formulate a range of gut-friendly nutritional products.

The rationale behind these products was to focus on minimising the things that irritate the gut and then finding natural ingredients that help soothe gut symptoms.
