The gut doesn't need your brain's input

You might think of your gut as a rebel against authority. It doesn’t wait for your brain’s impulses to do the important work of digestion, because it doesn’t need to—it acts as its own “brain.”
No other organ, not even the all-powerful heart, can pull that off.

Welcome to Gut Love!

Poor immune system, digestive nightmares, medical anomalies – sound familiar?

According to Google, ‘leaky gut syndrome is a digestive condition that affects the lining of intestines’. And yet it is still an undiagnosed condition overlooked by many healthcare professionals which is why I have created this website.

I wanted to give audiences the voice they need to say, ‘yes, I do have it’ and ‘yes, it is a condition that exists’. A very painful and frustrating condition that although is not curable, is manageable.

Gut Love offers you the opportunity to delve into my life as a survivor of Leaky Gut Syndrome as well as other gastro-related illnesses including but not limited to:

  • Gerd (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease)
  • Celiac Disease
  • Crohn’s Disease or Ulcerative Colitis (inflammatory bowel diseases)
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Leaky Gut
  • Peptic Ulcers
  • Gallstones
  • Lactose Intolerance
  • General Food Intolerance
  • Diverticulitis
  • Constipation
Explore how I manage different symptoms, my diet and day to day activities that have helped alleviate some pain and discomfort through heartful articles. By raising awareness for these conditions, we increase the chance to source a cure and with your help, I want to make sure we rekindle our love for our gut instead of dreading the day from the moment we wake up. Together, with industry experts, first-hand accounts and associated articles, we can start to heal our gut one day at a time.

To our health,
James
