The Olympic Rings Health Analogy

Your body systems are all connected, which is why a digestive problem can manifest as skin disorders, low energy, depression & anxiety, muscle & joint pain, low sex drive, and more…

In 20 years of experience in the natural health world, one of the most important truths I have learned is that everything in the human body is connected.

When I had H. pylori, intestinal parasites and mold overgrowth in my gut, I had no libido, couldn’t sleep, felt tired, had dandruff and athlete’s foot and was anxious and very irritable.

These seemingly unrelated symptoms cleared up when I healed my digestion, and I’ve seen similar results in thousands of clients since 2007.

This short videos shows you how a problem in one area of your body (e.g. digestive infection) can cause a problem or multiple problems in other areas of your body.

Once you’re empowered with this info, healing becomes much easier!

Everything in your body is connected!

When we see a gastroenterologist, he/she knows a lot about the digestive system, but very little about the other systems.

When we see an endocrinologist, he/she knows a lot about the hormone system, but not much about the digestive system.

Do you see the problem here?

By relying only on specialists, the big picture is lost and we end up knowing more and more about less and less.

We do need specialists, but we also need generalists who see the big picture.

In summary, here are some basic connections between the digestive, hormonal, detoxification and immune systems…

  • Digestion is controlled by more than 40 hormones
  • Detoxification depends on healthy digestion
  • Digestive inflammation actually shuts down detoxification
  • The digestive system has its own nervous system (the enteric nervous system)
  • 60-70% of the immune system is housed within the digestive tract
  • Poor digestion and detoxification lead to hormone imbalances
  • Digestive problems can cause thyroid disease
  • A growing body of research is showing how gut microbes interact with hormones and brain function in a two way superhighway called the “gut-brain” axis

I could go on, but I am sure you already get the picture.

Do you have a set of confusing symptoms?

Whatever your symptoms are at present, there is an answer for you – you CAN look and feel wonderful again.

You don’t need to ditch your doctor or anything silly like that.

Superior results come from a combination of methods, and it’s wise to seek the best of both worlds – excellent conventional healthcare and common sense, natural methods.

That’s why I’ve teamed up with Dr. James Walker to create an integrative medical clinic in my home town, Leeds, which is in the U.K.

We’ll be opening in February 2018.

James has more than 100,000 patient consulting hours behind him, spanning some 15 years as a medical doctor.

Yet he needed functional medicine to beat his irritable bowel syndrome, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, Candida, migraines, anxiety and fatigue.

We’re inspired to provide the best of both conventional and functional medicine to make sure our patients achieve the best possible results.

And don’t worry, we’re able to consult via phone and Skype if you’re not able to come and see us in person (but we’d really love to see you face-to-face 🙂

We also have an online “DIY” digestive healing program…

  • How to avoid unfriendly foods that damage your gut and what to eat instead
  • How to optimise your eating habits so they support digestive function
  • How to keep your food and drinks separate so as to not overwhelm your digestive system
