There are some really great practitioners at NatMed Naturopath Perth, who undertake a wide range of testing as part of their consultations. These tests help identify specific deficiencies and areas to improve on. They also stock a great range of probiotics, herbal and nutritional medicine which compliment the treatment outcome immensely.

Are Your Gut Microbes to Blame for Your Cravings? | Brenda Watson's Community | Gut Health | Scoop.it

Foods high in starches and sugars are the biggest culprits. Nonstarchy vegetables, low-sugar fruits, fermented foods, healthy fats, and protein will help you regain your gut balance, and your waistline.
