“The bowel is king” and as soon as digestion is improved, overall health will improve.


There are many symptoms of allergies that will affect the digestive system e.g. pain, bloating, heartburn, flatulence, diarrhoea, constipation, IBS and I recommend an allergy test and treatment.



Bloating can be caused by wheat or gluten and made worse by candida and I recommend doing an allergy test and dietary changes as per your result. A herbal candida treatment and a Probiotic will have you feeling great.


I first went to Lynne Flood at Health Wise, feeling lethargic, bloated and gaining weight. After a consult Lynne hooked me up with the right products and eating better. I now feel energetic, my skin is great and what’s best is that I am losing weight naturally. You have made a world of difference for me. Thanks hugely. 

Rachael, Auckland.


I found Lynne very easy to relate to and she was able to help me with my health problems, discovering the types of food I shouldn’t eat, which in turn has enabled me to lose weight more easily and has also stopped my bloated feeling. I would highly recommend Lynne to anyone who needs help with overcoming health problems and maintaining good health.

Candida is fungal overgrowth caused largely by antibiotics.  It causes many symptoms such as fatigue, foggy head, poor concentration, low mood, irritability and digestive problems such as diarrhea, nausea etc. Lynne Flood Naturopath is a Candida Specialist Auckland, often diagnosing candida. Naturopathic treatment of candida is an anti-candida diet, herbal medicine and Probiotics. I often use a herbal formula for energy and liver support too. Candida often underlies all other illness and causes a vast array of symptoms. After a candida treatment, clients report feeling much better.


I suffered with cysts in my armpits for two years. I had lost faith in doctors and their medicine as nothing worked. I have taken many antibiotics and they have left my body in worse condition. Lynne has helped me turn this around. After a session with Lynne my body began to repair better than ever. Her confidence in me is a strength I really needed. Depression was a major factor when I met Lynne. Physically and mentally I have bounced back. I was even scheduled for an operation and this has been cancelled! I have no idea how I would have coped without Lynne these last few months. I can only thank her for caring. She is my angel. 



Celiac Disease

Clients with Celiac Disease will benefit from my dietary advice on avoidance of gluten grains. Gluten grains are wheat, oats, rye, barley and malt and I can give you a gluten free diet and recipes. Gut healing may be needed, such as Glutamine or Slippery Elm. You may also be quite depleted and need extra nutrients that are readily absorbed. You could do well on herbal medicine to increase energy.


Constipation and diarrhoea

Constipation and diarrhoea are common and might be diagnosed as Irritable Bowel Syndrome. In Irritable Bowel there is usually a bacterial and/or fungal infection and I recommend treatment of this infection, nervine herbs or Magnesium for stress, Probiotics and avoidance of the foods to which you are allergic will give good results.


Crohn’s Disease

I have treated Crohn’s Disease by doing an allergy test to find out your sensitivities, as a first step, then initiating an individualised treatment, with good result.


Fatty liver

Fatty liver is treated quite commonly and there are many herbs that are useful such as Milk Thistle. I would use the QRA techniques to determine the best liver remedies for you.



Flatulence responds well to avoidance of wheat and sugar and herbal Candida treatment and Probiotics. If there are other symptoms of allergy, I would recommend an allergy test.


Digestive pain

Digestive pain could be triggered by food allergy. You may have had tests done and they have found nothing wrong. An allergy test would be useful and herbal medicine as appropriate. I would use the QRA techniques also to identify the best treatments.



If you are having attacks of Diverticulitis and have had lots of antibiotics, I recommend natural treatment. I have treated Diverticulitis by doing an Allergy Test, diet modification and anti-infective protocol, along with immune support and minerals.


Lynne Flood has been my Naturopath for the past 7 1/2 years. I first saw Lynne when I was suffering from Diverticulitis and was very unwell at that time. Over the years I have called on Lynne for a range of health problems that were causing me concern. Lynne has always helped me through with her wonderful knowledge of herbs and vitamins. Lynne is very professional, trustworthy, and caring and if you are looking for a Naturopath who will do her utmost to help you I recommend that you try Lynne Flood.




Haemorrhoids respond well to change of diet, allergy test if needed and astringent herbs and a herbal cream.



Heartburn is resolved by avoidance of food allergies, if necessary doing an allergy test, and using soothing herbs or slippery elm.


Irritable Bowel Syndrome

This is characterised by alternating diarrhoea and constipation and is often made worse by stress. I find that doing an Allergy Test (Hair Analysis), providing treatment for infection, nervine herbs for stress and Probiotics resolves Irritable Bowel Syndrome.


Ulcerative Colitis

Ulcerative colitis responds well to an allergy test and avoidance of your food sensitivities, along with an individualized treatment. My treatment will depend on the severity and whether you are on medications.
