How does the programme work?
It incorporates the 5R approach and uses targeted nutritional, digestive enzyme and probiotic formulas, alongside a targeted food plan, to support gut function and get your digestive system functioning at its optimal.
What is the 5R approach?
First it is important to remove potential harmful micro-organisms which may be residing in the gut and causing adverse symptoms. Natural herbal anti-microbials support this process. Stripping the diet to wholesome basic foods and drinks which commonly are problematic for the gut allows the gut time to heal and restore optimal function.
The gut produces digestive enzymes important to break down food so nutrients can be absorbed. These are produced in the mouth, stomach and small intestine. If the body doesn’t produce enough enzymes, the digestive process is hampered, setting off a vicious cycle where food isn’t digested causing digestive symptoms.
Research shows a healthy diverse gut microbiome of good gut health and optimal health. This component focuses on nourishing this immensely important intestinal population of microbes. Increasing beneficial prebiotic fibres. Adding fermented foods alongside supplementation nurture this crucial internal environment.
When digestive factors are low and infectious micro-organisms and problematic foods in the diet, the gut wall can become damaged (leaky gut) which can cause more systemic health problems. This component focuses on providing key nutrients to support gut wall integrity.
This crucial component involves making an assessment of what needs to be done to maintain your new level of gut health. You will slowly reintroduce problematic foods and drinks, one at a time, to evaluate how your body responds. Some foods you may need to avoid for longer and others may be seamlessly re-introduced. It is also time now to assess your current health and decide what habits to keep to retain your new improved gut health.
