I love that my two businesses work together so well. And nowhere is it more obvious than when I’m talking about gut health. Reflexology is a great way to treat gut problems, helping the body’s own healing properties to rebalance all aspects of the very complex system. Of course what we put in our gut is also very important so here comes my second little miracle…Aloe Vera which can redress the problems of poor gut flora, IBS, motility and acid reflux.
More and more we recognise that when the digestive system is not working properly we see all kinds of health issues. Thankfully some doctors are beginning to look beyond symptoms and recognise that the gut may be the root cause of such problems as;
1. Autoimmune diseases such as Crohn’s and rheumatoid arthritis
2. Mental health conditions such as depression and anxiety
3. Poor immunity
4. Skin conditions like psoriasis, eczema,acne, rosacea
5. Trouble maintaining a healthy weight
I found a great little article which goes into more detail. If you are suffering and suspect your gut is to blame, have a read and get in touch. Brenda xx
