Acid Reflux

The human gut contains billions of bacteria, most of which are beneficial to our digestive and immune systems. They help us to digest our food, absorb nutrients, metabolise drugs, prevent inflammation, and provide a barrier to disease-causing pathogens into the body. These ‘good’ bacteria balance out the more toxic and damaging bacteria which are also present in the gut. Sometimes this balance may be lost (such as after a course of antibiotics), causing a range of symptoms. Knowing your gut type, taking probiotics and making dietary changes are steps you can take to maintain a healthy gut bacteria balance.

Acne

Acne is where pores in the skin become blocked. Often, this is due to a substance called sebum which is produced by glands in the hair follicles. Sebum normally helps keep the skin moisturised and water-proof. But too much sebum can cause acne. When pores get blocked they may become inflamed or infected, creating red bumps in the skin. Whilst getting spots is normal, acne involves a lot of spots on the face, back and sometimes the chest. The types of spots include black and whiteheads, pustules and even cysts. Acne is triggered by hormonal changes at puberty or the menstrual cycle but also during pregnancy. At best acne is embarrassing, especially when you are young, but it can also cause scarring.

Back Pain

Back pain can be felt anywhere along your back. It’s most common to have pain in your lower back. Back pain can range from muscle aches to a shooting, burning or stabbing sensation. In addition, the pain may radiate down your leg or worsen with bending, twisting, lifting, standing or walking.

Chlamydia

In the UK, Chlamydia is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections. It is particularly common in sexually active teenagers and young adults, and is passed through sex without a condom. Most people with chlamydia do not know they have it and do not notice any symptoms, and left untreated, chlamydia can cause serious complications.

Dermatitis

Dermatitis, also known as skin irritation, is a common condition that has many causes and occurs in many forms. It usually involves itchy, dry skin or a rash on swollen, reddened skin. It may also cause the skin to blister, ooze, crust or flake off.

Ear Infection

Ear infections can be extremely painful. The main symptoms of an ear infection include an earache, difficulty hearing and a feeling of pressure or fullness in your ear.

Emergency Contraception

If you have had unprotected sex within the last 3-5 days, we offer the emergency contraceptive pill to help prevent pregnancy when other forms of contraception have failed.

Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction is a common condition. It occurs more frequently with age, affecting up to 50% of men aged between 40-70, and up to 70% of men over the age of 70. In the UK there are several treatment options available to treat erectile dysfunction. These treatments have been found to be effective in up to 80% of men, and are considered safe and cost-effective.

Hair Loss

Hair follicles on the head convert the hormone, testosterone, into a different form of testosterone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). It’s believed that the gene for male pattern baldness causes the follicles to become sensitive to DHT and start to shrink. Eventually, the follicle stops working and no hairs will grow from it.

Hives

Hives are characterised as a raised rash usually caused by a reaction to things like food, pollen, insect bites or chemicals. The main symptom of hives is a blotchy, raised red rash. It’s often very itchy. You can usually treat hives with antihistamines from a pharmacy, however in some cases stronger medication is required.

Migraine

A migraine or migraine attack is a severe headache that often comes with nausea and aversion to light. Your migraine attack might last a few hours or a few days. When suffering from a migraine, you may feel like you need to lie down in a dark and quiet room and not move until it passes. The causes of migraine are not exactly understood but they may be linked to dilating blood vessels in the head swelling and causing pressure in the brain. Individuals who suffer from migraines may become aware of what triggers their attacks.

Nausea

Nausea is the feeling of stomach discomfort and the sensation of wanting to vomit and can lead to being sick. Nausea has many causes and can often be prevented. The main causes for feeling sick are Pregnancy (morning sickness), motion sickness, anxiety, alcohol, medicines, recent surgery.

Likewise, you may wish to avoid the stress or discomfort of a period during a house move, job change or another stressful event such as exams.
