To Improve the Digestive Health of All Australians.
Did you know that half of our population complain of some digestive problem in any 12 month period?
We aim to change these odds through education and research.
The Importance of digestive health
The complexity of the gut and its importance to our overall health and well being is a topic of increasing research in the medical community.
Largely responsible for the critical functions of the body’s digestive and immune systems, beneficial bacteria in your digestive system have the capability of affecting your body’s vitamin and mineral absorbency, hormone regulation, digestion, vitamin production, immune response as well as your body's ability to eliminate toxins.
Our educational and medical efforts focus on primary prevention through recommended dietary and lifestyle changes for all.
The Key to Prevention
Gastrointestinal conditions include constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, haemorrhoids, anal fissures, perianal abscesses, anal fistulas, perianal infections, diverticular diseases, colitis, colon polyps and cancer. Many of these can be prevented or minimized by maintaining a healthy lifestyle, practicing good bowel habits, and engaging in cancer screening.
The key to preventing GI disease and conditions is to change our views on healthy eating and lifestyle.
