    WE AIM TO ELIMINATE ALL KNOWN STRESS FACTORS, EMOTIONALLY, PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY BY STIMULATING THE BODY’S OWN MECHANISM OF SELF-HEALING, WHILST STRONGLY ADDRESSING PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE.

    “When looking at a health problem from the perspective of digestion there is always the danger that you might begin by throwing the baby out with the bath water. Food is not the demon of the piece and the road ahead is not impossibly narrow in dietary terms. There is nothing more irritating I find, than the ‘one size fits all’ philosophy. . .What you should eat depends on what state your body is in. Unfortunately most people’s guts are in pretty poor shape. . . My program is about making food work for us. In order to do this we have to understand its effects and learn how to cope with them. I want to show that it is possible to solve chronic difficulties with digestion and eventually go on to eat a delicious broad range of food.”

    A poor diet and/ or stressful lifestyle will create an overly toxic, acidic system that is weak and susceptible to disease. Poor digestion manifests itself as many well know conditions & ailments including irritable bowel syndrome, poor skin, constipation, arthritis, headaches, weight gain, hair loss, mood swings, and depression to name a few. Gudrun will heal you from the inside out, redressing the balance in your digestion and restoring you to full health and vigour.
