Do You Suffer From…
Hi, we are a Naturopathy clinic located in Melbourne. We specialise in helping people suffering from Gut ailments such as Reflux, Helicobacter pylori infections and Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GORD).
What is Reflux?
GORD or acid reflux, are chronic conditions whereby the contents of the stomach regurgitates back up into the oesophagus causing inflammation and damage to the lining of the oesophagus. Functional dyspepsia and gastroparesis are the two most common sensorimotor disorders of the upper gastrointestinal tract, with shared symptoms of upper abdominal pain, postprandial fullness, early satiety and nausea.
What Can Cause Reflux?
Foods that contribute to reflux include fatty and fried foods, chocolate, garlic, onions, acidic foods, citrus fruits, tomatoes, spicy foods, mint flavourings, caffeinated drinks and alcohol. Other key factors that contribute to reflux are Helicobacter pylori infection, obesity, diabetes, pregnancy, gluten sensitivity, stress, anxiety, poor eating habits (excessive carbohydrates, eating too large meals, eating directly before bedtime), smoking cigarettes, slouching, hiatus hernia, delayed gastric emptying of food from stomach and certain medications such as vaccinations, calcium channel blockers, theophylline, nitrates and antihistamines.
Natural Solutions For Reflux
You don’t have to suffer with Reflux anymore. Decreasing the inflammation, getting rid of any infections, supporting stomach acid and healing the gastrointestinal tract can have an immediate effect on the relief of symptoms that you are experiencing and facilitate the gradual improvement in the underlying condition. Our Naturopaths work with your health goals to work out the best treatment protocol for you. This involves working out the factors as to why you have reflux, removing these factors and allowing your body to heal with various foods, herbs, nutrients, diet changes, lifestyle, stress management and digestive management strategies.

“I want to say a big thank you to Helena Davis for helping me late yesterday afternoon. I’ve been having a stressful time at work and Helena suggested some Metagenics products to help decrease my anxiety. I slept like a log last night! Also, I noticed on the Calm-X product that it helps with back stiffness etc. While I forgot to tell Helena this, it is exactly what I needed.” ~ Robyn (Melbourne)
