Digestive Problems


 

What are digestive problems?

Digestive problems include constipation, diarrhoea, heartburn, reflux and bloating. These are common problems which are usually easily treatable and not indicative of a more serious condition.

Many digestive problems are believed to be related to the foods we eat, as well as stress. Therefore, changes in your lifestyle can often help to prevent many of these problems.

 

What causes digestive problems?

Digestive problems are often caused by stress as it can target the digestive system and cause problems such as indigestion and heart burn.

Additionally, the most common cause of digestive problems is an unhealthy lifestyle or poor nutrition which can cause food sensitivity or even lead to infections of the digestive system. This can be addressed through nutritional therapy sessions to adjust your lifestyle and eating habits.
