Digestive complaints are such a common occurrence in society stemming from many causes; poor diet, lifestyle, stress, emotional imbalances, genetic weaknesses resulting in a large number of individuals living with tiredness, bloating, nausea, reflux, candida, constipation, diarrhoea, haemorrhoids and food intolerances.

Although homeopathy provides a huge list off effective symptomatic medicines for digestive complaints I find that the most effective treatment comes from looking at the mental and emotional picture of a patient’s stress and anxiety is a big part of the maintaining cause of the complaints.

We need to always remember that the brain controls every function of the body so if our brain is stressed then the body will become stressed also and in Naturopathy the gut is referred to as the “second brain”, so calm the brain and the gut will follow.
