A healthy digestive system is the foundation to a healthy, whole body. Without the ability to nourish your body properly, you are leaving it prone to metabolism, immune system, hormone imbalance issues, and more.
Are heartburn, gas, bloating, constipation, irritable bowels or other digestive problems part of your day-to-day life? Have you gone to the doctor, had tests done and been told that everything looks fine, but yet you continue to suffer?
You may be so used to your digestive issues that you have normalized them. We are here to tell you that the distressful signs your gut is sending you are anything but normal. In fact, they are signaling your body to underlying health issues that are causing you pain and discomfort. If you seen doctors who run tests, write you a prescription, and send you on your way, you are failing to uncover the root causes of your digestive issues and treat them.
You are what you eat. Digestive health doesn’t stop at your gut. Properly nourishing your body is the key to overall health and wellness. We at Integrative Wellness Centers understand the intricate connection between your digestive system and the rest of your body. By using advanced biotesting, we are able to uncover the root causes of your digestive discomfort where traditional medicine comes up short.
1. Food Sensitivities
Food sensitivity is very different than a food allergy. Unlike food allergies which produce immediate reactions, food sensitivity reactions can take up to 48 hours, making it much harder to pinpoint. Food sensitivities cause an array different side effects than food allergies such as inflammation throughout the body, sinus pain, brain fog, fatigue, and skin issues and can last up to 6 months.
At Integrative Wellness Centers, we have bio-marker testing that is able to pinpoint foods that are causing sensitivity, then create a program to heal and nourish your body.
2. Hidden Infections
Traditional tests often fail to uncover common gut infections from bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), yeast, viruses, parasites, and worms. At our clinic, we use a DNA stool analysis that is 3000 times more sensitive than traditional tests and go further to uncover potential immune reactions brought about by diets high in sugar, medications, and stress.
3. Autoimmune Conditions
Autoimmune disorders occur when your body receives mixed signals and cause the body to attack its own healthy organs. Celiac, Crohn’s, irritable bowl disorder and ulcerative colitis are common autoimmune disorders that wreak havoc on the digestive system. “Leaky gut” happens when gaps develop on the lining of the digestive system, causing particles to leak into the bloodstream. We can diagnose and treat leaky gut to reverse autoimmune disorders to get your life back.
Stress has a direct influence on digestive health. Your gut has its own nervous system that reacts to signals from the brain. If you stress levels are off balance, they negatively impact your gut’s nervous system and lower production of stomach acid. Addressing your stress levels is imperative to digestive health. Unfortunately, traditional medicine often overlooks the intricate connection to our brain health and our digestive health.
