Are you eating a good diet but still feeling like it isn’t doing what you would hope for? Are you absorbing the nutrients from your food? Food sensitivities do not have to cause constipation, loose bowels or bloating. When we do the blood testing that confirms the food sensitivity the person will often say they were lethargic, foggy and unmotivated, possibly experiencing headaches too. Food sensitivities may ‘silently’ irritate the gut lining and cause you to not absorb your nutrients. Bacterial overgrowth. A condition known as small intestinal dysbiosis (or SIBO) is characterised by too much bad bacteria and not enough good bacteria. Some bacterias help with the breakdown of carbohydrate, some fibres. Others help with breaking down proteins. When the balance of good:bad is not right the result could be excess gas, bloating, changes in bowel movement, fatigue but also a decrease in nutrient absorption. Emotional imabalance is probably one of the biggest contributors in nutrient deficiency. This causes your body

to release cortisol, a hormone that will result in a decrease in digestive function. Some of you may get an ulcer in the mouth, a cold sore, changes in bowel movements, more hair falling out or a little infectious bug when you are stressed. These are all signs that your demand for nutrients is high. Clinically there are tests that you can do to confirm if a person has increased intestinal membrane permeability. This can confirm if you are absorbing your nutrients properly or not.
