Hippocrates is attributed with saying – “All disease begins in the gut”. It’s common to overlook our gastrointestinal system health even though it contains a vast array of health-promoting bacteria. Unfortunately, a majority of the population has inadequate beneficial bacteria and a lack of bacterial diversity. This is largely due to poor diet, but other contributing factors can be: over-medication; chronic stress; exposure to toxins; insufficient bacterial acquisition at birth; and your current health & body composition.

Eastern tradition, which takes a holistic view to healing, considers diet as a vital part for promoting and restoring health. Different food types have associated energetic properties, such as warming, cooling, moistening and drying that can be used to support your treatment.
