“If you are serious about your gut health, be sure to take the reins,” says Annie. “Take care of yourself. Do your research, educate yourself and don’t be scared to trust your body as it has an innate intelligence to heal itself.
“When I was diagnosed with Hashimotos Thryoid Disease in 2013, I really ‘woke up’ and turned my life around. “I realised a lot of my ailments were actually a result of inflammation due to my poor gut health. From skin issues, fatigue, joint pain, poor sleep, mood swings, menstrual problems … the list goes on! “I’ve taken probiotics in the past, and after moving to Singapore I wanted to find one that I could easily obtain, afford, enjoy, see benefits of and trust. “Since taking Akesi Bio-Fermented Tonics I have experienced much better digestion. This shows me my body is now operating at a much healthier detox level than before I started using Akesi products.
“I really enjoy the Akesi range. I take the Akesi Bio-Fermented Turmeric Tonic regularly, as it has anti-inflammatory properties and is another great way to incorporate turmeric into my diet. I love that it contains black pepper too, which is essential for the body to absorb turmeric. “The liquid tonics are also easy to take, with great flavors and ingredients.
“I also love that they’re free of herbicides, pesticides or chemical fertilisers. And no artificial preservatives or colourings have been used. “Taking Akesi probiotics is a wonderful way to improve your gut health. In combination with a holistic approach, it will really benefit you.”
Annie’s advice for others embarking on a gut health journey:
“Keep a notebook and track what you eat, how you feel, and the results. This is a great way to determine how you are doing internally and externally. “Eat well, sleep well, hydrate your body, allow your detox pathways to be open. It is not a quick fix of ‘taking something’, the big picture is vital for overall health. “There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to health. Really get to know yourself on a physical, spiritual and emotional level. Healing has many layers that all work together when addressed from a holistic approach.”
