Digestive Problems

The Gastrointestinal (GI) Tract houses the majority of our immune cells. It is also a major organ system involved with neutralizing hormones and eliminating the toxins we encounter on a daily basis. Therefore, it is important to appreciate the tremendous impact digestive imbalances can have on the entire body. It’s no wonder that people with digestive disorders tend to have multiple health problems.

Have you been suffering with any of the following?

  • Gas/Bloating
  • Indigestion/Nausea
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Rectal Itching
  • Food sensitivities

Less Obvious Conditions that can be associated:

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Autoimmune Disease
  • Arthritis/Joint and Muscle Pain and Stiffness
  • Migraines
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Hormonal Imbalances (PMS and (Peri)Menopausal symptoms)
  • Anemia

Have you undergone extensive testing, and given a diagnosis such as:

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Reflux
  • Sensitive stomach
  • Chronic constipation
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease: Crohn’s or Colitis
  • Celiac Disease or Gluten Intolerance
  • Osteoporosis-give links to each of these in relation to GI
  • Diabetes
  • Arthritis
  • Autoimmune Disease
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Migraines

What good is a diagnosis if you don’t feel much better and don’t know how to manage it effectively?

Our focus is on creating a unique program designed to fit your individual needs, instead of a one-size-fits-all tear-off sheet loaded with foods you can’t eat. Simply receiving a diagnosis like IBS or reflux doesn’t account for your underlying contributing factors. Therefore, we evaluate for many commonly overlooked causes of GI distress, and our comprehensive testing can enable us to identify and focus on treating the underlying sources of your problem instead of simply suppressing these warning symptoms with laxatives, stool softeners, or antacids. We’ve found that most patients have tried these short-term fixes with minimal success, while our whole body approach leads to a more permanent resolution of symptoms as well as the prevention of further health complications.

Do you still have questions such as:

  • How can I learn which foods I should eat and which I need to avoid?
  • Am I having problems digesting food and absorbing my nutrients?
  • Do I need probiotics (ie good bacteria such as acidophilus) and if so, how much and what types would be best for me?
  • Do I have imbalanced bacteria or yeast overgrowth and if so, what are my best treatment options?
