The happy gut guide eBook

We’ve put together this e-book to help you navigate some of the nutrition basics behind a happy, healthy gut. We’ve also developed ten gut-loving, delicious, dietitian-approved recipes to work into your repertoire.

Happy gut 101 resource

A healthy lifestyle is the best first step you can take towards healthier, happier insides. To give you a helping hand starting on your gut health journey, we list our four key pillars of good gut health

IBS vs IBD resource

They’re often thought to mean the same thing, but Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) are very different things. Here, we walk you through the similarities and differences between IBS and IBD.

Let’s talk about poo

One of the easiest ways to check in with your gut is checking in with your poo … so, have a look in the loo! You don’t have to inspect every deposit, but make a habit of investigating once a month, or sooner if you’re experiencing gut issues. 

Food intolerance resource

The words ‘allergy’ and ‘intolerance’ are often used interchangeably when talking about food, but they refer to very different things.


Coeliac disease resource

Coeliac disease is an immune based condition in which the body responds abnormally to dietary gluten. This autoimmune reaction causes systemic inflammation and small bowel damage. 

Practical strategies to beat constipation resource

Constipation is one of the most common medical complaints in Australia. If you struggle to empty your bowels completely or open your bowels infrequently, you may be constipated. Constipation can lead to stomach discomfort, nausea and fatigue.
