Heal Your Gut
Digestive issues are no fun. You’re tired of the stomach pain, bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhea, reflux or any other number of symptoms. Maybe you’ve tried changing your diet, taken medications or supplements, been to doctors and nothing is helping to fix your gut. Your doctor may have told you that everything is “normal”. But you know that what you are feeling is anything but normal – something isn’t right.
I am here to be your detective – to help you figure out the root cause of your gut issues. To do this, I use a systematic approach to help figure out your triggers and get you back to having a happy healthy gut.
When we fix your gut, often other things improve too. Did you know that 70% of our immune system resides in our gut? Or that more than 90% of the body’s total serotonin and more than 50% of the body’s total dopamine are synthesized in the gut, not the brain.
Our gut health plays a pivotal role in the how the rest of the body works. Research indicates that our gut health has a direct effect on our brain health, skin health, immune health, sex hormones, bone health, and even our eye health.
For this reason, other symptoms you are experiencing might also be stemming from digestive imbalances. Some of these include:
- Headaches, migraine, fatigue and brain fog
- Joint and muscle pain
- Thyroid disorders
- Acne, rosacea, psoriasis
- Anxiety and depression
Addressing gut health is one of the most important things can do to improve our overall health and prevent future health issues.
To find your triggers, I use blood, breath, stool, and urine testing to comprehensively evaluate for the following:
- Intestinal permeability (leaky gut)
- Dysbiosis (Imbalance of healthy gut bacteria, viruses, and yeast)
- Food sensitivity (to include wheat and gluten)
- Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth
- Adequate digestion of proteins and fats
- Infection (Parasites, virus, bacteria, yeast)
Based on our findings, we will come up with a comprehensive treatment plan specific for you and may include:
- Herbal antibacterials
- Healing supplements
- Dietary guidance
- Prescription medications if needed
- Pre and Probiotics to fit your specific needs
- Recommendations for further evaluation if indicated
