Suffering from unexplained bloating, constipation or diarrhea? Perhaps you have the diagnosis of “IBS” (Irritable bowel syndrome). After undergoing various tests such as a colonoscopy, blood work and food allergy testing have you been told that there is nothing wrong and been instructed to accept your symptoms for what they are?
People tolerating poor digestive health and never addressing frequent bowel movements or constipation with their doctor need to understand that these symptoms are not “normal”.
We can help treat these concerns.
New to medicine, and being accepted as a diagnosis, is something called “SIBO” which stands for “Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth”. While the medical community is trying to catch-up with the growing research investigating the gut microbiome, it is important to take this into consideration when addressing bloating, loose bowel movements, diarrhea, constipation, chronic fatigue and more.
Digestive health is critical to overall health and must be considered when administering nutritional medicine. The GI tract must absorb the essential nutrients and minerals needed to decrease risks of chronic disease states and support a healthy metabolism. If you are suffering from poor digestive health you may be unknowingly placing yourself in harm’s way.
Accepting that chronic diarrhea, or chronic bloating, or chronic constipation is normal is ignoring what could be a serious health issue. A work-up of your digestive health can be accomplished by taking a careful history, lab work other special tests necessary to arrive at a diagnosis.
The benefits of treating a malfunctioning digestive system are amazing. Oftentimes, combining certain supplements and medications can yield fantastic results. Finding an accurate diagnosis is the best place to start.
