This is a recording of the AAAP Complimentary Training Day held at the AcuEnergetics® Centre in Balmain, Australia. Presented by Janella Purcell, this day explored the many contributing factors that can lead to gut problems.
Only 1 in 8 people feel a gut issue in their gut. Things like bloating, indigestion, constipation, diarrhea, reflux and pain all tell us something’s wrong with our digestion but what about the other 7/8’s of us? Could it be that other symptoms and conditions like allergies, insomnia, depression and anxiety, fatigue, infertility, thyroid issues, asthma, eczema, psoriasis, autism, MS, Alzheimer’s, weight gain and obesity, diabetes, auto-immune diseases, hormone imbalance and some cancers can all be traced back to poor gut health? Current cutting edge research says yes.
With the gut, we have an organ in our body that weighs as much as our brain. It affects your health, your weight, and even your behaviour and mood. Currently we’re being told, if you eat this you'll have a healthier microbiome and that'll mean you'll enjoy better health. It’s not as simple as that - although diet is of course hugely important - there’s still so much we don’t know. We’ve only just seriously begun to research and study the gut in the last decade or so. Incredible really, considering its effect on our health – body and mind.
Join this fascinating day and learn more about the many factors that can contribute to gut disease:
• Antibiotics, and over-prescription of them
• The Modern Diet including the processing of grains, dairy and sugar; the introduction of GMO foods, agricultural chemicals our food is grown with; trans-fats
• Chronic stress
• Prescription and non-prescription drugs such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) like Nurofen, anti-depressants, HRT and the contraceptive pill
• Caesarian births and a preference for baby formula over mother’s milk
• Hormones disruptors (Xenoestrogens) in cosmetics, cleaning products, household items and pollution.
• Antibacterial soaps and our obsessive need for cleanliness
• Chlorinated water
