I view the body, spirit and soul as one. This micro-unit is not only part of the universe but is also influenced by its environments such as lifestyle, stress levels, etc. In my philosophy, the foundation of our health stems from the harmony between both body and soul.
As a Naturopathic health practitioner, I strive to provide personal care to each of my patients as they are genetically, structurally and emotionally unique. Therefore, I will not merely treat a specific point but will take the entirety of your soul and body into consideration. From there, I will provide a complete diagnosis and protocol which merges my Infinity Alignment Therapy with my Naturopathic practice.
What is the GAZ Detect?
The test, I conduct, is simple, non-invasive, and performed after a short period of fasting (typically 8–12 hours). This Hydrogen gas test (or HBT) is used as a diagnostic tool for small intestinal bacterial overgrowth and carbohydrate absorption, such as lactose, fructose, and sorbitol malabsorption. Although the test is generally known as a “Hydrogen Breath Test” I also test for Methyl Acetate, Sulphurous Hydrogen and NO.
My reasoning for this is simple.
– Hydrogen is considered to be the least dangerous. It ascends the colon and can notably cause bloating or symptoms of putrefaction.
– Methyl acetate is known as the most aggressive and acidifying gas, which is conducive to candidiasis.
– Sulphurous Hydrogen, which is very rare, indicates an already very degraded immunity.
– NO. If there isn’t a production of NO gas, then that means that the CNS (Central Nervous System) is also damaged. Therefore, showing me there is a blockage on the Vagal Nerve.
By doing this, I can devise an appropriate protocol which may include advice regarding your nutrition, exercise and suitable, natural remedies all in accordance to your condition and lifestyle. This will all aid and contribute to a rapid recovery. However, as part of my integrative health care approach, I may refer a patient to their GP for a candida, urine, faecal or blood test or even to other trusted health practitioners as to make sure they receive the care they need.
Before the Consultation
Before the consultation, you will need to submit the online form and follow the conditions stated below. The initial consultation usually lasts around one to two hours. Thus, allowing us to discuss any questions you may have regarding your lifestyle, medical history, diet or general well-being. In addition to this, there is the possibility of a physical examination which could include anything from iridology (a study of the iris), a diagnosis of the tongue, wood lamp, HP (Helicobacter Pylori) saliva test and the Gaz test.
The more information given, the more accurate the evaluation and the health protocol will be.
After the consultation
Depending on the level and type of fermentation, a suitable treatment will be proposed, mainly based on dietary supplements, but above all, a nutritional reform, with the eviction of Fodmaps and hypoxic feeding. All the symptoms mentioned are taken into account and will help determine our next step.
If you suffering from any of the above pathologies or other problems related to your digestive system “see pic below” please be in touch, and I will try to answer your questions on the best possible way. I think it can go.
What can Naturopathy treat?
Digestive system – Dysbiosis, IBS, SIBO, constipation, diarrhoea, Helicobacter pylori, Chronic Fatigue etc.
Nervous system – Anxiety, depression, insomnia, ADHD and ADD etc.
Respiratory system – Chronic cough, asthma, seasonal allergies etc.
Immune system – bacterial and viral infections, autoimmune conditions (rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, Scleroderma) etc.
Dermatological system – Eczema, acne, urticaria, psoriasis etc.
Uro-genital system – PMS, perimenopause/menopausal health concerns, hot flashes, menstrual syndromes, vaginitis, fertility issues, urinary tract infections, prostate etc.
Musculo-skeletal system – Arthritis, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, carpal tunnel syndrome, injuries etc.
Cardiovascular system – High cholesterol, metabolic syndrome, arteriosclerosis, hypertension, haemorrhoids etc.
Can I get additional cancer support through Naturopathy?
Yes. Although Naturopathy may not play a direct role in curing your cancer, it will help you cope with signs and symptoms caused by cancer and its treatments. Common signs and symptoms such as anxiety, fatigue, nausea and vomiting, pain, difficulty sleeping, and stress may be lessened with this complementary therapy. Therefore, it is just a question of a few personalised, nutritional adjustments which will revitalise your energy and support both your digestive and immune system.
There is no fatality; every situation is unique and deserves individual and appropriate monitoring. The naturopath does not replace the doctor. He is, in his complementarity and natural approach, an interlocutor of choice.
Usually, when resting or fasting, Hydrogen is not present in the human breath. However, the gases I test for, are often present and here is why.
It all begins with our nutrition.
When certain substances are not digested properly, fermentation takes place. Some bacteria, like anaerobic bacteria, digest our food; however, when they do, they often produce acids, water and gases – these gases are known as fermentation.
The main gases produced here, are Hydrogen (H2), Methane (CH4), Methyl-acetate and Sulphurous Hydrogen. Then, these gases are absorbed and diffused into our bloodstream. Once in the bloodstream, they are conducted into the lungs for blood gas purification. It is then that they can be measured accurately. Therefore, if either of these gases H2, CH4, H2S and NO are biologically produced, then it informs me that some food substance within your digestive system is exposed to bacterial fermentation.
*Do not eat and brush your teeth prior to the appointment. Aim to fast for 12 hours, hence our morning appointments.
Please do try to avoid heavy makeup, cream, nail polish and perfume. Also, when conducting the examination on the feet (nails/skin) please wear socks rather than tights.
Please do try to avoid shaving as well as any after shave for the consultation as it can hide some bacteria/fungus.
In 2016, I undertook training in Paris with Dr Bruno Donatini, through ECIM, a college designed for doctors and naturopaths to study the immunity of the digestive system following the Gaz testing therapy which incorporates Mycotherapy as an additional protocol. From there, I sought a deeper understanding of the implications within bacteria, viruses and other pathologies.
What is the investment?
Initial Gaz detect consultation and evaluation = £200.00 + products/supplements + any further queries you may have you can contact me through Skype, Tel or Email so that you do not feel alone in this often-challenging journey.
Follow-up gas consultation after 4 months from the date of your initial consultation = £135.00 + products/supplements.
I first met Jean-Marc in 2017 after suffering from digestive problems for a number of months, making me feel very sick. After an initial consultation and Gaztest, I discovered I was suffering from a Helicobacter pylori infection. Jean-Marc helped me with a course of treatment that included nutrition advice and herbal medicine. My digestive problems disappeared and my approach to diet and wellbeing changed forever.
