Foundations in G.E.M.M
Gut Ecology and Metabolic Modulation (G.E.M.M.)
Harnessing the Intricacies of the Digestive System
G.E.M.M. has been developed by an experienced clinician in Nutritional Medicine, Dr Christine Houghton after extensive research into the complexities of digestive health and the intricate connections that link the gut to every other system of the body.
The clinical implementation is simple; the underlying principles are complex.
The Gut-Immune-Metabolism-Disease Link
Perhaps surprisingly, around 80% of the human immune system resides just below the layer of cells lining our digestive tract.
Knowing this has provided clinicians with a real advantage in dealing with infectious diseases, allergies and the like. G.E.M.M. provides clinicians with very specific strategies for targeting the abnormalities that stem from poor function linking the Gut, its Immune network and the metabolism of distant organs.
We can summarise how G.E.M.M. addresses the prevention and treatment of disease in these ways:
- G.E.M.M. leverages what is already known about cellular function to encompass the repair and restoration of the epithelial cells of the entire gut ecosystem.
- G.E.M.M. allows the clinician to simultaneously – and non-invasively – target the key elements of the gut ecosystem, a process which in turn favourably modulates the function of distant organ systems.
Underpinned by 21st century science, Gut Ecology and Metabolic Modulation (G.E.M.M.) is a comprehensive system founded on the principles that Nature has used to sustain human life on this planet for millennia.
G.E.M.M. utilises a diet and lifestyle approach together with unique evidence-based nutraceuticals that are designed to target key biochemical imbalances.
G.E.M.M Accredited Clinicians
A G.E.M.M. accredited clinician can explain how this effective but gentle approach can help restore the necessary balance to your system. If it seems that you need additional treatment for specific conditions, G.E.M.M. provides the foundation for reducing unwanted inflammation and for initiating the cellular repair processes that are common to all human cells.
