CAM conference focus on Leaky Gut and Inflammatory Bowel Disease

by -

We had an informative presentation by Christine Bailey a Nutritionist and health writer about the role of food and diet with Inflammatory bowel Disorders such as Crohn's disease and Ulcerative Colitis. Supporting sufferers with food and diet is essential in their care and wellbeing as well as identifying food triggers, and the possibility of a leaky gut. The use of probiotics for gut health and immunity has been extremely successful as well as a lactose free diet. It is important for sufferers to understand the foods that can cause them further damage in order to help them avoid malnutrition and malabsorption and lead a normal life.

Additionally Dr Tom O'Bryan from the USA came to present his findings on gluten-free therapy for individuals not only those with Coeliac disease but for its role in auto-immune diseases. His presentation suggested that musculoskeletal symptoms and auto-immune disease stem from increased immune complexes circulating around the body as a result of gluten sensitivity.

He has treated many patients in his clinics in America suffering from inexplicable muscle pain and weakness. He has seen many changes in health over a period of time using nutritional based therapeutics, lifestyle factors and dietary recommendations. All of his clients undergo significant testing and monitoring and all clients follow a strict dietary regime particularly focusing on the health of the gut and the intestinal permeability.

It was a very informative and uplifting conference with some brilliant speakers and experts in their field of gastrointestinal health and auto-immunity.

If you or anybody you know is suffering from and Inflammatory bowel disease or digestive disorder, I would be more than happy to provide a free 15 minute telephone consultation to establish if there is any way we can help support their condition.
