With over half a million procedures undertaken, you're in safe hands
Are you experiencing stomach problems? Finding your skin to be irritable and inflamed? You are? Well, it may surprise you to know that it’s possible that your gut is to blame - and you may very well have caught the symptoms just in time.
The gut is often a drastically underestimated organ - in fact, the gut is sometimes referred to as ‘the second brain’. This is because our mind and our guts are connected by an extensive network of neurons - if you've ever felt that sinking feeling in your stomach after receiving bad news, or experienced a bout of emotional overeating - maybe even just had an intense "gut instinct" you couldn't shake, you will already be acquainted with direct mind-to-gut communication.
A healthy gut plays an important role in our level of overall health. This is because when our gut is in a poor state, it can have a huge effect on multiple other parts of the body. To avoid this, it is crucial to that we are able to strike healthy balance of good and bad bacteria inside the gut. However, with the realities of modern society making it difficult to achieve this ratio, Harley Street Skin are on hand. We're here to help to get the nation's guts back on track, and fighting back.

The answer to some of the most common questions you may have
It's only natural to have questions if you are considering pursuing a treatment for the first time, and at Harley Street Skin, it's important to us that you feel confident and comfortable at every stage of your journey. To help you find the answers you need, here are a few of the more common quibbles that we find our clients frequently ask...
Gut health refers to the delicate ecosystem of microbes living in your gut and how the balance of bacteria can affect your health. The trillions of bacteria in the microbiome (collection of microbes) help us to process food and can have a massive impact on our general well-being. It has been shown that when the microbes in our gut are unbalanced we can experience a number of different health issues. In fact, poor gut health has been linked to issues such as diabetes, autoimmune conditions such as multiple sclerosis, mental health problems and even some cancers.
When our microbiome is unbalanced we can experience a number of negative symptoms. These commonly include an upset stomach, fatigue, unwanted weight loss or gain and difficulty sleeping. These symptoms can be uncomfortable and can even affect the day to day life of the person experiencing them. If left unaddressed, these symptoms often lead to much longer-standing gastro/digestive issues.
Specialists have suggested that poor gut health can lead to a number of common health issues. Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a prevalent problem caused by poor gut health. In fact, it is thought that up to 45% of people will exhibit IBS symptoms in their lifetime. Bad gut health can also be linked to skin irritations and conditions, such as eczema, due to gut inflammation. This inflammation can also be a precursor to many health conditions, including type 2 diabetes and some cancers, such as cancer of the colon.
There are many ways to improve your gut health. One of the main contributors to poor gut health is the processed, high-sugar diet that is common in the 21st century. Changing your diet by including more fresh, clean food and adding more fibre can help improve your gut health. Probiotics are also a fantastic way of helping keep your microbiome balanced and enhancing your overall health. Probiotics are essentially live good bacteria that, when introduced to your gut, can promote a range of health benefits such as weight loss, reduced cholesterol and healthy digestion.
