Gut Mind Clinic

What is the Gut- Mind Clinic?

The Gut mind Clinic is a naturopathic and holistic approach to gut support and repair. Our goal is to address the root cause using diet, lifestyle, supplement and herbal medicine. We also use functional testing (i.e. stool analysis, food intolerances etc.) when necessary. 

Most people are not aware that our gut is not just responsible for digestion; 80% of our immune system is in the gut and Scientists have found that gut bacteria produce many other neurotransmitters such as dopamine, norepinephrine, acetylcholine, and GABA, which are critical for mood, anxiety, concentration, reward, and motivation. The gut microbiome can cause changes in how our brains react, which can affect mood and energy! A happy gut = a happy you!

Addressing the root cause

Medication and basic dietary advice may work to suppress gut-related symptoms. However, it’s common that the underlying cause of the condition remains unidentified and symptoms can still flare-up. To see lasting change we must understand what is causing your symptoms and address the root cause. Root causes can include:

  • Imbalances in gut bacteria

  • Vitamin deficiencies

  • Infection

  • Food intolerances

  • Stress

  • Poor immunity

  • Autoimmune conditions

  • Digestive insufficiencies

  • Low-grade inflammation

  • Medication
