Delhi Belly (at Home)
Most of us have experienced it at some point: gripping pains, nausea and frequent trips to the bathroom. I'm travelling overseas at present and making it a priority to keep those nasty bugs out. However, you don't need to be in a foreign country to get an upset belly.
Symptoms of digestive upset can include; bloating, cramps and pain, diarrhoea, constipation, reflux and heartburn. There are many causes for gut symptoms and it is important to see your GP to rule out possible disease or illness first.
If a specific medical condition is not found, there is still much that can be done. As a Naturopath, I would aim to restore the health of your digestive system with indicated herbs, nutriceuticals and pre & probiotics.
Diet can also be an issue, even so called “healthy” diets may have certain foods that cause upset for some people. Investigating these in a systematic and thorough way helps you identify your triggers. Once these are found it becomes easier to create a wholesome diet from the wide variety available.
There are many angles to work with to deal with digestive upset, at NuMe we tirelessly explore them all to ensure you have the best of digestive health.
