Dr Anne Harris - Natural Gut/ Digestive Health (IBS) and Emotions
Lifeways Complimentary Health Centre

Hi, I'm Dr Anne Harris!
As a functional medicine nutritionist I love to work with people who want to heal their gut and digestion health. I do this through nutrition science and motivational coaching/tools that include personal and challenging accountability support. My clients say that working with me has changed their bodies and lives, would you like to join them?
It is vital that the root cause of the gut problem be identified and not focus on the symptoms in isolation. Once the immune system has been supported through natural pre and pro biotic food and toxic foods taken out of the diet the microbiome (good bacteria) in the gut becomes balanced and healing takes place. I am a registered practitioner with GENOVA and BIOLAB if testing needs to be carried out.
I have a unique blend of knowledge and practical skills in gut and psychology health that compliments the nutrition concerns in relation to gut and digestion that gets the results that people want.
My experience as an EFT therapist allows me to get to core nutrition related problems. Emotional Freedom Therapy is a tool that helps reduce negative emotions. This dynamic mix of training, knowledge and practical experience, combined with my passion for making people realise their true potential.
I focus on working with emotions that have an impact on the gut lining. For example stress or fear which are common in society today can alter the good bacteria in the gut and expose our bodies to the majority of gut diseases today.
My FREE 30-minute telephone consultation will allow you to discuss and decide any nutritional query you may have - please call me on the number displayed at the top of my profile.
What can I do for you in our one to one consultations?
I will work with you through a 6 stage food plan that will eliminate some foods that cause food sensitivities/intolerances/allergies, and increase foods that will support your gut. It is vital to detoxify your personal care products as well as environmental toxins that are in our foods. I offer recipes and information that will increase your good bacteria and lower the bad pathogenic bacteria. Through one-to-one personal support via e-mail, mobile and text I will totally support you every step of the way.
You will walk away with a step-by-step food plan of exactly what you need to support your gut health.
We will find the exact diet that supports you by discussing your health history together.
Through coaching you will:
Clearly establish your goals for success Discover what motivates you and what is really important in your life Gain clarity about your emotions and beliefs that stop you overcoming emotional cravings and obstacles Supportively challenge you to overcome barriers that have kept you stuck in repeating patterns and unhealthy lifestyle habits Have a 6 stage plan in place that will support you
What makes this approach different from other food regimes is the practical method of coaching that bridges the gap between thinking and doing.
The package includes:
- 6 one-to-one close support sessions (1x 2 hours and 4 one hour sessions
- 7 day food plan breakfast/snack/lunch/snack/dinner on a weekly basis- with recipes
- E-mail/text/skype support included while you carry out food plan the results that clients get if they follow the food plan are truly astonishing!
