Digestion

Quick fixes such as over the counter and prescription medications don’t address the real causes of constipation, diarrhoea, bloating, gas, gallbladder problems and irritable bowel syndrome; they only mask the symptoms. There are many gentle and natural therapies that not only treat underlying digestive problems but also help to promote overall well-being.

My treatment protocol for repairing the digestive system includes:

  • Thorough medical and nutritional examination
  • Comprehensive stool analysis test
  • Nutritional advice
  • Nutritional supplements
  • Herbs
  • Stress management techniques
  • Optional: acupuncture

“Because my symptoms were quite extreme, I was given a strict diet to adhere to for three months, which included avoidance of all yeasts, sugars and fermented foods. Initially I was sceptical, as the diet included many of the foods that are staples in the Western diet. However, after a few days I noticed a dramatic difference in my energy levels and continued with the diet. After a number of weeks Shannon devised a tailor-made supplement plan to heal my digestive tract. Since then my energy levels have increased tenfold, my PMS is virtually non-existent, my digestion has dramatically improved and my tongue is thankfully no longer discoloured. Shannon also recognised the emotional component to my state of health and recommended that I see a counsellor. Previously, I would not have been open to such a suggestion, but the effectiveness of her treatment plan was such that I felt compelled to follow her advice.

Three months on I can say that I have never felt healthier, both mentally and physically and I’d like to thank Shannon for opening my eyes to a healthier, more balanced lifestyle.” — Chloë, journalist, age 29

“I saw Shannon for severe colitis that required years of high dose medication.  After only 3 days of following Shannon’s nutritional and supplement recommendations I was able to cut my medication by half and start doing activities I hadn’t been able to do in years because of the colitis.  I am very happy with Shannon’s help and would highly recommend her.” — Linda, retired, age 62
