Your Gut Feeling: A Healthier Digestive System Means a Healthier You

The gastrointestinal system is more than the body’s primary site of taking in and absorbing nutrients. This system of critical digestive organs also acts as a type of switchboard or communication centre to and from the brain, and functions as one of the core disease-fighting systems of the human body.

“The gut plays a vital role in your overall health and well-being. It can help control everything from your weight to your mood to brain health, inflammation and immune function.”

I have learnt lots of helpful information about my condition since being under his care.
