Who am I to be telling you all this?

In order to have the highest chance to achieve lasting improvement to your digestive health and overall quality of life you need to follow the 7 step process outlined below.
So what are the steps? Read on to find out more...
The 7 Steps to Restoring Gut Health
Step 1: Remove Dietary Triggers
The first step in the gut healing process is to stop throwing fuel on the fire and remove potential dietary triggers. There are several elimination diets I use for this and the right one depends on your symptoms, what you’ve tried before and if you’ve already been given a specific diagnosis like IBS.
You’ll be provided with meal plans, recipes, shopping lists and instructions for whichever diet is most appropriate to you.
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.
Tests I often use are looking for SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), parasites, bacterial dysbiosis (imbalance), leaky gut, immune and 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 digestion support packages below so we can start some testing.
Step 3: Rebalancing With Supplements
Once we’ve identified the symptom triggers through an elimination diet or testing we can start using supplements in each stage of the rebalancing plan. If relevant you’ll be prescribed practitioner grade supplements. If you’ve already done testing or you’ve had success with an elimination diet but still have some symptoms I'll help you dig deeper into what could be going on. I’ll review your diet, your history and your results before we start to address symptoms with supplements. We may consider antimicrobials, prebiotics, probiotics, digestive enzymes and supplements to heal leaky gut.
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. You get access to this online program with either package.
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 you only need to work through the diet steps or you’ve been through each of the above steps, we need to optimise your gut microbiome and restore balance with gut-friendly foods. 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, weight management, 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
Individual nutrition support is important to reaching your gut health goals and getting the level of support and accountability right for you. My 8-Week Gut Fix Program is perfect for most people with 4 consults over 8-10 weeks.
If you’re someone that has other conditions and issues that can complicate your health picture you may be more suited to add Metabolic Balance or other functional testing to your program and take longer to heal and rebalance.

What our clients say...
"After multiple visits to my GP and the constant disappointment of being told "come back in a month, we'll try another type of indigestion medication" I searched the web and found Lisa, I had constant pains in the stomach, bloating and inconsistent bowel movements, I felt sluggish and tired. I ate healthy foods and still had these symptoms...I was lost.
My first consultation with Lisa filled me full of confidence after Lisa picked that I had SIBO, after the results from the test came back positive I was glad I had found her. We began treatment using supplements and a low FODMAP diet, within a week I had a whole lot more energy and felt less bloated. I am now very selective with the foods I eat, going to the gym and am enjoying life a whole lot more compared to 4 months ago.
Lisa thank you so much for what you have done for my health and my family now having a more energetic Dad. I now have a new outlook on life."
"I first came to Lisa after putting up with digestive discomfort for a number of months, I was frustrated by the fact that, although eating healthily I still had persistent bloating, gas and constipation.
I had my initial consultation with Lisa and immediately felt comfortable with her approach and desire to help. We began with testing for SIBO – small intestine bacterial overgrowth, this test confirmed I had SIBO and I started treatment immediately... with great success – 2 months of supplementation and a strict eating plan, this killed off the bacterial overgrowth and eliminating all the uncomfortable symptoms associated with SIBO. I can now eat normally without suffering any bloating, gas, and constipation.
I am very happy with my results and would highly recommend the help of Lisa for any digestive discomfort or anyone seeking better general wellbeing."
