Everyday Nutrition

Everyday Nutrition  will be here offer expert advice and guidance as well as treatments and plenty of challenges along the journey to better health. ‘We are what we eat’ has never been more important in this day in age.

• How does food affect me ?

• Is there certain types I should stay away from ?

• Is it true if I skip breakfast  will I lose weight?

• I am eating healthy but I’m not losing any weight

These are just some of the questions we regularly get asked.

We will also be debunking myths and completing challenges and you could even join in if you like.

We have already planned our   30 day vegan challenge, Water fast Challenge, Intermittent fasting Challenge and dietary restriction challenges. We will document every step of the way and talk you through the pros and cons. So you can make an informed decision moving forward and meet those health goals.

The body is ripe with bacteria, most of which lives in our gut and has a huge impact on our overall health. Your microbiome regulates inflammation and immunity throughout your entire body. If you look after your gut you can help improve your overall health. Here’s just a few simple steps to boost your gut health going forward…

  • Remove the toxins: Removing toxins from your body will allow your body to heal itself and help maintain a healthy gut. You should look to eliminate what could potentially be causing damage, this can include refined sugar, gluten, dairy and most processed foods. Refined sugar is the worst offender because it feeds the negative gut bacteria and depletes the positive bacteria that support a healthy microbiome.

  • Bring back the good bacteria: By giving your body good bacteria it can combat the detrimental elements affecting your gut. Fermented foods like kefir, miso, sauerkraut, kimchi and tempeh are all full of good bacteria, as are probiotics. Although eating these foods are beneficial to the gut, they are not as potent as taking a food supplement to enhance the effects. Try KIKI Health Body Biotics, they contain live and thriving SBO’s (soil-based organisms) and re-populate the intestine with a beneficial balance of friendly bacteria.

  • Focus on food: We hear this time and time again, but eating plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables allows the gut to get the vital vitamins and minerals it needs to heal. Consume lots of dark leafy greens, easy-to-digest grains like quinoa, and healthy fats like avocado, flax, hemp, pumpkin seeds, almonds, raw coconut and walnuts. These foods reduce inflammation and support gut health.

  • Get more sleep: Sleep has a major impact on the digestive system. Sleep allows the digestive organs to rest, repair and restore. Each person requires a different amount of sleep, but aim to get 7 to 8 hours a night to ensure a restorative sleep cycle.

  • Keep yourself alkaline: The stress of modern life can make our bodies become acidic which inhibits our digestion. By restoring your bodies natural pH level it can neutralise the effect of acid on your body, allowing it to repair and heal. Try KIKI Heath’s Alkaline Infusion, the alkaline minerals help to naturally balance the pH levels in the body.

We will be looking to work with Nutritionists, herbal experts, chefs and anybody that wants to make a positive difference to people’s lives through gut health and nutrition. The impact that we can have on our patients lives through the right food, diet and advice.

Good nutrition can start at any age and to educate them about healthy choices and the impact food has on the body can be taught at any age, and it’s never too late to start.

So please if you know of a nutritionist or herbalist in the Preston and Chorley area we would love to speak with them to see what we can do together.

So why not talk to us and make your health the no.1 priority
