The 7 Steps To Restoring Gut Health

Step 1 – Remove Dietary Triggers

If you’ve just been diagnosed with IBS and your GP or specialist has suggested you trial a low FODMAP diet then step one is my 'Implementing A Low FODMAP Diet Program' is a great place to start. 

If you have mild to moderate digestive symptoms but haven’t been diagnosed with IBS and you know that what you eat makes a difference to your symptoms, you may wish to start with my Gut Reset Program. This is like a detox where we remove the top food intolerance foods, sugar, processed food and other gut triggers for 3 weeks so we know how much better eating a clean, healthy diet makes us feel. This may be all you need to stop your digestive discomfort and improve bowel movements. If however you are looking for further improvements you can move to the next steps.

If you feel you've already cleaned up your diet and low FODMAPs hasn't helped you may need a different elimination diet to get that initial symptom relief. These diets require a more individual approach. Examples of other food intolerances and diets that can help are: salicylates, amines, glutamates, sulphites, oxalates, histamine, SIBO.

Step 2 - Testing

If you’ve been on the gut healing journey for a while and you feel you’ve tried elimination diets before and they haven’t given you much improvement, or you’re ready to learn what’s really going on in your gut it’s time for testing. There are various tests that help us work out what’s contributing to your symptoms. I require a consultation to refer you for testing. This way we look at the most appropriate test to help identify what’s going on.

Tests I often use are looking for SIBO, parasites, bacterial dysbiosis, inflammatory markers, functional GIT markers, worms, fungi and yeast, bacterial pathogens and viral pathogens.

If you’re ready for answers you can join either of my gut support programs so we can start some testing.

Step 4 – Addressing Lifestyle Factors That Affect Your Gut

Many of you will already know that stress impacts your gut symptoms. So do other lifestyle factors like sleep, not enough or too much exercise, slowing down to breathe and eat mindfully. We can’t underestimate the impact non-dietary factors have on symptoms and healing. If you know you need to slow down and improve some of your daily habits to better manage your symptoms I have you covered in my Stress Management Program.

Step 5 – Challenge & Reintroduction Of Foods

Elimination diets are not for the long-term. We want to go through a challenge phase to work out if you can now tolerate a food that previously caused you problems or if it still causes problems and you need to stay away from it for longer.  I step you through the process whichever elimination diet you've been on.

Following this step properly means you'll know your individual tolerance for each food group. This information is powerful and will help you keep your symptoms under control for the future. It's important not to stay more restrictive than necessary for long-term digestive health.

Step 6 – Optimising Your Microbiome For Long-Term Gut Health

Whether your symptoms were resolved simply by following the Gut Reset or you’ve been through each of the above steps, we need to optimise your microbiome and restore balance. This will help with daily healthy bowel movements and keeping symptoms at bay. These steps help benefit anybody, even if you aren’t suffering digestive issues or if you only have the occasional bloating. Optimising our microbiome helps with overall health, your immune system, energy levels, skin health, mood and more. There are many studies linking healthy gut bacteria to areas of health outside the gut. This is the most important step to creating long-lasting symptom relief.

Step 7 – Individualised Nutritionist Support

Some people have other conditions and issues that can complicate their health picture. If this is you other areas of your health need to be considered at the same time. This requires more time, testing, support and research so you’re encouraged to join me on the full 4 Month Complete Gut Restoration Program for answers.
