Treating the Origins of Metabolic Disease Through The Gut
Are you overweight? Struggling with mood or energy swings, high blood sugar, cholesterol, or blood pressure? G.E.M.M protocol or Gut Ecology and Metabolic Modulation might be your answer.
Metabolic syndrome is an umbrella term that includes a cluster of symptoms such as excess body fat, high cholesterol and/or triglycerides and blood sugar and increased blood pressure. It is a major risk factor in the development of type 2 diabetes, stroke, and heart disease.
The term ‘metabolic’ is a normal biochemical function. So when dysfunction or disease occurs it’s a sign the biochemistry is off track.
Even if some of us are more genetically prone to certain diseases, current research in nutrigenomics confirms that certain molecules signal our cells to turn certain genes on and off (thus changing function and health outcomes).
This means the foods we choose every day have profound effects on our health – now and into the future.
Each mouthful is rich in thousands of food chemicals that promote either health – or disease.
The G.E.M.M. protocol is a clinical strategy to address both acute and chronic health conditions, beginning at the Gut-Immune interface and subsequently impacting distant cells and organs within the body.
Gut Ecology and Metabolic Modulation (G.E.M.M)
Our Clinical Nutritionist & Naturopath, Sheridan Genrich has completed professional education to become a G.E.M.M Certified Practitioner, being trained by Australian Nutritional Biochemist, Dr Christine Houghton PhD.
The Gut Ecology and Metabolic Modulation (G.E.M.M. protocol) focuses on what is currently known about cell function & the gut microbiome to repair and restore a more healthy digestive tract.
The intestinal lining of our digestive tract has “tight junctions” between the cells that are meant to open transiently to allow for food absorption.
When the gut barrier and its tight junctions become weakened, unwanted microbes and molecules leak through to the underlying immune cells, where they can cause infections, food intolerances, allergies, toxic overload and uncontrolled inflammation. This contribute to the downward spiral towards poor health.
Using diet and lifestyle strategies along with evidence-based nutraceuticals, G.E.M.M targets upstream (ie. higher up pathways) cellular processes and results in improved health of all body systems and pathways of function.
