Every individual has their own unique microbiome that consists of a collection of micro-organisms that live within the gut (the colon). Scientific research suggests our dietary intake has a profound impact on these organisms which affects our overall health.

  • Difficulty losing or gaining weight
  • Allergies to foods

  • Asthma
  • Mental Illness (e.g Anxiety, Depression)
  • Digestive Issues (e.g. bloating, constipation, diarrhea, poor digestion)
