Digestion issues are so common these days that people have begun to think of them as normal. Join us for a Gut Health Retreat at Solar Alvura were the focus is on your digestive health and microbiome.
Do you struggle with bloating, reflux, indigestion, constipation, diarrhea, body odour, GERD, IBS, candida, autoimmune conditions, skin issues or stress? Have you been taking PPI’s for heart burn, laxatives for constipation and creams and powers for recurring genital thrush or other similar symptoms that keep recurring? Do you struggle with fatigue and mood swings?
All these symptoms are your bodies way of communicating to you that something is out of balance.
We need to learn to listen to our bodies signals and understand that things could and should/must change.
Your gut is not just the place where food is digested, and waste is eliminated – it is so much more than that. It is the place that houses a large part of your immune system. Disease prevention starts with good gut health. You cannot be healthy with an unhealthy gut.
Food intolerances are very common and food intolerant tests are often used to identify which foods are problematic for person to person. They frequently result in a long list of foods you should avoid with many of these being healthy foods. From our experience, they are inaccurate, unreliable and overpriced.
At Solar Alvura we will begin your gut healing protocol so you don’t react poorly to a whole host of various foods and we start an elimination diet that will help you identify which foods are beneficial and which are problematic for you.
While we cannot promise healing in 5 days we can give you a promise that you will already start
feeling better during this time, you will start seeing results and be amazed by all the other positive side-effects of our gut health diet.
If excess weight is one of your personal health concerns, we will ensure your personal gut healing protocol is also suited to ensure weight loss as an added benefit.
