Is a feeling of sadness, loss of interest in activities, low motivation and difficulty in finding pleasure .
 

This can be caused by
 

  • life challenges, bereavement, loss

  • loneliness

Fatigue

Loss of energy and fatigue is becoming a major symptom presentation in the 21st century .

 

Again this could be caused by a multitude of factors and things like stress, adrenal and hormone imbalance, thyroid dysfunction .

By testing and treating the root cause we can look at resetting and rebalancing to regain your energy and vitality .
 

Gut Issues

Hippocrates said "all disease begins in the gut". The gut is the ‘first’ brain . we feel things in our gut and the gut has a big impact on how we feel( it produces neurotransmitters). When we look at gut disorders we need to take into consideration what is going on inside, but also what is going on externally.  

 

Stress, trauma and overstimulation of the sympathetic nervous “fight or flight” system and under stimulation of the vagal nerve -the rest and digest system and will cause gut problems.

 

Other factors such as diet, lifestyle, infections and sleep will have an impact.
