Journey with me as we voyage through the digestive system uncovering facts and underlying causes of digestive discomfort. Along the way we will discuss nutritional approaches to help manage heartburn, bloating, food intolerances, leaky gut, FODMAPS, constipation, diarrhoea, and more. By the end of 6 weeks, you will have a much deeper understanding of how we can enhance our digestive health and improve assimilation of nutrients. Remember - we are what we can assimilate (not what we eat)!
Week 1: Where Digestion Begins
We'll begin by looking at how sensory signals kick-start our digestive process. How do we think about food, look at it, smell it, taste it and chew it? What state of mind are we in when we sit down to eat? How do these impact our digestive process? I'll be sharing tips and tricks on how to set the stage for enhanced assimilation of nutrients
Week 2: Into the Stomach
As we leave the mouth and travel down the oesophagus to the stomach, we will be focusing on how the stomach works, optimising protein digestion and managing heartburn. We'll look into triggers for heartburn as well as foods to help soothe it.
Week 3: Enter the Small Intestine (Part 1)
Welcome to the microbiome! Discover the wonderful world of villi, micro villi and the bacteria who live there. Learn which foods can increase your bacterial diversity, We'll also explore food intolerances, leaky gut and general gut healing strategies.
Week 4: Enter the Small Intestine (Part 2)
This session is dedicated to bloating and nutritional strategies to reduce bloating (including FODMAPS). Let's banish the bloat!
Week 5: Welcome to the Large Intestine
Take a deeper dive into colon health. This will include strategies to help manage constipation and diarrhoea, as well as looking at conditions that affect the colon.
Week 6: Digestive Recap and Celebration
Key take-aways from the 6 weeks, and a fun quiz. This is going to be an interactive session. I'd love you to share how any changes you have made over the last 6 weeks have impacted on your digestion. What have you noticed and how will this impact your food choices moving forward?
