Updated Post: Digestive System Wellbeing Your digestive system & is to you the same as the root system is to a tree. Good digestion is fundamental to good health. 
Without it, you cannot absorb the nutrients you need to thrive, just as a tree absorbs nutrients from the soil.

Imagine the damage to your whole body that can be caused when you upset your root system.  For a tree, this then makes it unhealthy.

The key to repairing the foundations of your health is to find out what triggers your digestive system problems. There is always a cause.

At The Integrated Wellness Clinic, our Naturopath’s use Scientific Pathology testing to systematically determine the cause of your digestive imbalance. Treating symptoms with band aid methods will never repair your health long term.
Have you ever wondered why or how you have ended up with a poor digestive system? These symptoms don’t just come on for no apparent reason. IBS is a bowel that is irritated and sensitive. Sensitive to what though? We find that most people who have IBS seem to be reacting to their seemingly “healthy diet”, developing an inflamed digestive system. When you’re in this state your body may find it hard to digest your food [feeling nauseous, gassy, bloated or suffer with erratic bowel movements] and so you’ll feel tired and drawn regardless of how good your diet is.

Our biggest concern in those who have digestive issues is, “how will you 100% absorb your nutrients in this state?”. Most people know to eat a balanced diet, but what many do not know is that often the nutrients are not being absorbed efficiently. Through simple pathology testing you can determine the extent of damage to the gut lining and thus nutrient absorption.
There are three predominant driving forces of digestive disease.
1. Food Sensitivities, Allergies and Intolerances 
After you eat something your are sensitive to you should get constipation, loose bowels, reflux or bloating, right? Wrong! These may not be evident immediately hence this is why they are often overlooked. Clinically, we organise pathology testing for almost every patient and unsurprisingly most have reactions to foods that they are commonly eating. These foods have the potential to activate the “hypersensitive” part of your immune system, damage the gut lining and this cause irritation and lowered nutrient absorption. Sometimes an intolerance response can happen well after you have consumed the food making it tricky to identify.
2. Microbial imbalance
Bacterias, fungi, viruses, parasites could all potentially be causing your symptoms. Simple functional stool testing is able to give us a clear view of the level of “good functional” bacteria and pathogenic microbes that are living in your gut.
You have trillions of bacterias in your gut and they can easily become imbalanced.
A condition known as small intestinal dysbiosis (or SIBO) is characterised by excess bloating usually caused by an imbalance in bacteria. There are bacterias that help with the breakdown of  carbohydrate, some fibres and others protein. When there is not enough of the “good guys” in there you will experience increased gas, reflux and bloating because the other bacterias will ferment your food and produce gas. Fatigue, foggy mind, irritation and poor motivation can be secondary symptoms of SIBO. There are tests that can determine the level of SIBO.
If the food is not being broken down properly in the small intestines the large intestines have too much work places on them and hence Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) may develop.
The role of bacterial imbalance in IBS and SIBO is very well documented and recognised in both Naturopathic and Conventional Medicine.
3. Psychological Link- The Gut:Brain Connection
When you are exposed to stress, trauma or illness your bodies hormones cortisol and adrenaline become out of balance. This greatly influences bowel movements as it can cause damage to the cells that line the gut. We know the feeling of “butterflies” in the tummy or nausea when we are nervous so we know there is a gut:brain connection. When you are stressed your body is unable to heal properly and digest food efficiently.
To have a happy mind you need to have a happy gut!  In an article I was reading Dr Gershon, from University of Columbia, states that 95% of serotonin is made in your gut, this is your happy, feel good neurotransmitter! 
Many clients report that they can almost to the day identify when the problem started. It may have been a very stressful occurrence in your life, an operation, a trauma, you picked up a stomach bug, after an overseas trip, hormone change or you started a new medication. Regardless of how you got it, it must be corrected in a thorough manner. Once we know exactly what your current physical state is then we can begin to formulate a treatment plan. We have seen many people who have tried every avenue of supplements and medication, the key is…

Updated Post: Children Psychology Sunshine Coast Children’s & Family Psychologist

Our team of Sunshine Coast Children Psychologists offer support and an integrative approach for your child and the whole family.
Childhood psychology assists in all aspects of the Childs development. Often we just associate seeing a psychologist with being depressed or anxious, when in fact psychologists help so much in children with shyness, attention problems and developmental delays. Emotional, physical, mental and social developmental areas are all addressed.
Children think and behave very differently to adults so the form of therapy and expertise of the Psychologist is also very different.
There are a number of different techniques that can be used with children to deal with mental health conditions and other psychological and behavioural issues. These tend to be used to help children to develop emotional regulation, resilience, confidence, relaxation and relationship skills.
Children and even teenagers tend to prefer expressive styles of therapy over talk therapies, especially those that include elements of play and creativity such as:

puppet role playing
sand play with figurines
arts/crafts
feelings cards and music
writing and drawing.

What sort of situations would your family & child benefit from seeing a Sunshine Coast Childrens Psychologist?

Recovery following physical, emotional or sexual abuse or traumatic or life changing event
Attention or learning problems like ADD and ADHD
Autism
Aspergers
Excessive shyness or need for social withdrawal
Bullying other or the victim of bullying
Aggressive behaviour
Throwing tantrums for no reason
Transition of family environment such as custody and parent separations
Bereavement
Delayed speech
Bed wetting and night mares
Limited interest in things they once found enjoying
Unexplained mood swings, sadness, anxiety, fears and phobias

Our Psychologists Dr Glenda Lattimore and Debbie Vanzoelen have a high level of experience and a very special interest in the area of Childhood Psychology.
Fees
Please phone our friendly team on (07) 5458 4800  to discuss the current fee schedule for Child Psychology.
The current Medicare Rebate if you hold a valid GP Mental Health Care Plan is $84.80. Medicare rebates are processed on the spot through Health Point (with a valid plan, Medicare will rebate the $84.80 into your bank account on the same day). We have full Eftpos & Credit Card facilities available.

Updated Post: Relationship Counselling Relationship Counselling Sunshine Coast
Do you feel as though your relationship is lacking:

Love?
Care?
Respect?
Appreciation?
Connection?
Acceptance?
Compassion?

Relationship and Couples Counselling creates a safe harbour for couples to openly express their feelings in a constructive environment.
Relationships may struggle for many reasons, this may be due to many factors such as:

Cracks have started to develop after a lengthy time together
Being time poor and not having enough time to put into the relationship
A continual sense of stress and overwhelm
Suffering with physical or mental illness or disbalance
Feeling misunderstood and unheard
A life experience or trauma that challenges the strength of the relationship
Unresolved conflict
Holding expectations of each other that may be misunderstood, unrealistic or misaligned
Going long periods of time with a lack of joy and overall life fulfillment
Financial strains causing high stress
Trust has been compromised
Reduced care or respect

The core purpose of relationship counselling is to:

Learn how to effectively support each other
Give both individuals a legitimate voice and work through any misunderstandings
Facilitate communication in a non-judgemental manner
Validate experiences
Identify again the core personality traits that connected you to each other in the first place
Re-establish the connection that once existed but is now missing
Discuss the arguments or disagreements that seem reoccurring and never ending. What is the core reasoning of these?

When we feel attacked or judged we go into defensive behaviours and create patterns that rarely get into the essence of what is really going on. So, within a non-judgemental and safe therapeutic way both parties will have the time and space to be able to effectively communicate what they are experiencing and what is going on.
Both individuals are the client, there is no bias. Time will be spent delving into patterns that may have been established before the relationship was developed. These patterns may be getting in the way of effectively communicating your needs, tension and fears with each other. These patterns could be what is holding you back from a beautiful relationship.
Our compassionate team offer couples counselling where the deeper needs and desires of both individuals are heard and understood. Our approach is non-judgemental and warm.
