50% of clients who attend our clinic have some form of digestive complaint; from IBS to food intolerances. Sometimes it is the reason they attend or part of another problem such as infertility, chronic inflammation or depression / anxiety. However, many of us forget our poor digestive system bombarding it with modern processed foods, antibiotics and eating on the run, but it is the key to overall health.


Modern research suggests that our digestive system is responsible for:


  • Immunity
  • Hormonal balance and regulation
  • Mood
  • Inflammatory conditions particular those due to auto-immune
  • And many more


Traditionally in Chinese Medicine the digestion is viewed as a cooking pot sitting upon a fire. The organs of the Spleen and Stomach are responsible for all of the digestive processes. However, in a modern clinic the traditional view can offer us unique insight into healing our gut.
