Your Microbiome

Step into every phase of life with new ambition

Get the freedom to live a life without limitations

You need a healthy mind and body to take advantage of this freedom

To achieve improved health we need to focus on what makes you unique – your microbiome

Science has shown that your gut health hugely impacts the way our brain and body functions and therefore affects our overall health. Did you know there is a major link between your gut and your brain? Our whole mental and emotional well-being is determined by our microbiome. The gut also controls around 80% of our immune system and even affects our sleep, metabolism, weight, fertility levels and hormones.

It is absolutely vital that our microbiome is in balance

to have a full and healthy life

 

 

What impacts our microbiome?

Our lifestyle and the foods we eat are the biggest factors – and the most obvious. Other things also can play a part including stress, environmental toxins, nutrient-stripped foods, pesticides, hormones in our food, medication and antibiotics. Whilst they can be life saving, it can take up to 6 months for your gut to get over a course of antibiotics.Watch the clip to see how the microbiome impacts every aspect of our health.

 

 

Leaky Gut Syndrome

For some people, the lining of the gut wall can become damaged – this lining, called the intestinal mucosal barrier, consists of a single layer of cells. The junctions between these cells are usually kept very tight. However, when bad bacteria attacks this gut lining, it can cause what doctors call “intestinal permeability” and what we know as Leaky Gut Syndrome. Undesirable bacteria called endotoxins and sometimes even undigested foods can pass through these leaky junctions into your bloodstream. Your immune system then recognizes these foreign molecules and tried to defend itself by attacking them causing systemic and chronic inflammation.

 

We are not what we eat but what we absorb

 

Do you have an imbalanced microbiome?

 

You may need to re-balance your microbiome if you struggle with:

  • Feeling tired all the time, have low energy or fatigue
  • IBS, irregular bowel movements
  • Digestive problems including indigestion, acid re-flux and bloating
  • Difficulty maintaining your ideal weight
  • Skin problems including acne, psoriasis, eczema
  • Unexplained aches and pains
  • Constant low grade headache
  • Poor concentration or memory
  • Brain fog or a foggy head
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Bad breath / body odour
  • Mood swings
  • Problems with yeast or fungus such as thrush or athlete’s foot
  • A low immune system and poor resistance to cold and illness
  • Generally not feeling ‘quite right’ and not your best

Imbalances in the microbiome have also been implicated in countless health issues, including chronic conditions, autoimmune diseases, MS, obesity, diabetes, asthma, arthritis and rheumatism.

The good news is that the microbiome can be changed and you can repair leaky gut syndrome. There is a way to restore your health and even improve it. Elite Health IS possible, a balanced and properly fed microbiome is the key to achieving it.
