Digestive Health & Food Intolerances

Alexander Dietetics can help you discover which foods may be causing problems with your digestive comfort or symptoms associated with a food intolerance.

Bowel Problems

Your digestive system is a huge (8-9 metres) and sensitive organ. We all suffer some upset once in a while. However some individuals constantly suffer from constipation, flatulence, or loose or unpleasant bowel motions.

Alexander Dietetics can help you assess whether a change to the foods you eat will rectify these problems.
Food Sensitivities & Intolerances

Some adverse food reactions can cause bowel problems associated with the poor absorption of nutrients like lactose or fructose. Other intolerances to the chemicals in food may also be the cause of itchy skin and rashes, nasal congestion, headaches and migraines, aching muscles and tiredness, poor concentration, depression and hyperactivity.

Alexander Dietetics can guide you though the elimination from your eating pattern of certain nutrients like fructose or food chemicals like salicylates or amines.

Coeliac Disease

Coeliac Disease is an intolerance to gluten which is found in wheat, rye, triticale, barley and oats. Gastrointestinal symptoms include bloating, flatulence, abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhoea or constipation or both. Other symptoms may include lethargy and fatigue, recurrent mouth ulcers, dental enamel defects and nutrient deficiencies like iron anaemia and vitamin D deficiency contributing to reduced bone mineral density and osteoporosis.
