Gut Brain Connection


Brain Fog, Cognitive Decline, Depression, Anxiety caused by Gut disorders or Brain injury causing Gut issues – all linked by inflammation and immune dysregulation.

The health of your brain affects the health of your gut and the health of your gut affects the health your brain.

Brain injury as simple as falling from a swing as a child or playing rugby can kick off ongoing digestive dysfunction.

Gut injury (poor diet, stress, infection etc) can set off a cascade of inflammation that sets the brain on fire.

Naturopathy treatment and individualised wholistic care can short circuit this vicious cycle of inflammation of gut disturbances and mood / brain disturbances.  By looking at triggers and treating the cause such as:

  • Stress and isolation
  • Radiation & Oxidative stress
  • Toxins and Biotoxins e.g heavy metals & moulds
  • Injury
  • Infection
  • Leaky gut
  • Autoimmunity
  • Allergens
  • Sugar dysregulation
  • Essential Fatty acid imbalance
  • Nutrient deficiencies and excesses
  • Acid & Alkaline imbalances
