Have you ever heard the saying that ‘Breakfast is the most important meal of the day?’ and ‘those who skip breakfast are more likely to be overweight or obese?’ Well, new research now shows that this isn’t necessarily the case.
So, what causes bloating? Bloating can be brought on by a number of different factors which include: • Stress • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) & irritable bowel disease (IBD) • Food allergies/intolerances (egg, fructose, lactose, wheat/gluten) • Poor digestion • Bacterial imbalance • Hormone imbalance
Hi everyone, I’m Alex Osellame the new clinical nutritionist here at Bergamo Chiropractic and Nutrition Centre! I get it, eating healthy is confusing. Complex carbohydrates, glycaemic index, polyunsaturated fats, ketogenic diets – when did it all get so complicated?
Magnesium is one of the most important minerals and one that almost every organ in the human body needs, it is also a cofactor for most of the biological pathways in the body. But did you know that most of us aren’t getting enough of it?
Our Clinical Nutritionist Alex is hosting a workshop – A Gut Feeling In this workshop we’ll be discussing: • The link between our diet, mental health and our gut health • Mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression and low mood • Gut issues such as bloating, abdominal pain, constipation and diarrhoea • Health effects of poor gut health • And some take home tips and recipe cards to help you feel, look and be better!
When you think of improving your mental health and mood, you may not think about changing the food you eat. However, there is a very strong link between what you eat, your gut health and your mental health/wellbeing!
