Grab that intestinal turmoil and straighten out your gut systems. Discover the root cause of your irritable bowel, your constipation, and your food sensitivities and then gain your freedom from the GI distress through functional medicine. With a nutrition plan, a restoration plan, and our guidance hope is a program away.
Gut problems present in many forms and flavors. Some patients come to us with upper stomach symptoms soon after eating and we can focus on gastritis (inflammed stomach), SIBO (Small intestine bacteial overgrowth), digestive enzyme insufficiency, or dysmotility leading to reflux and heartburn. Some come with lower symptoms of constipation, diarrhea, irritable bowel sydrome, or even autoimmune inflammation.
Others come with autoimmune conditions, brain fog, hormones imbalances or vitamin deficiencies and do not realize that their gut lies at the heart of their systemic symptoms.
We consider GI contributions to every single patient’s presenting symptoms. From there, we almost always start with GI restorative therapies targeting inflammation, digestions, and nutrient absorption. With the disruption caused by a standard American diet and high stress lifestyle, everyone can improve their gut health.
With these therapies, we see not only improvement and resolution of nause, diarrhea, constipation, reflux, and inflammation, we see hormone balance, increased energy, less brain fog, and more enjoyment of mealtime for these patients.
Your story tells us the majority of what we need to know about gut health. The dietary history, the infection history, your travel history, and a review of GI related symptoms points us towards what testing will reveal the full picture.
From there, we customize your testing with options from food antibody testing, stool function and microbiome testing, SIBO breath testing, or organic acid testing for yeast and bacterial imbalances.
With a clearer picture, a personalized program moves past the basic restoration approach to more comprehensive root cause long term recovery. A healthy gut promotes our patient’s healthier more abundant life.
