Gut Issues


Gut Issues

As we age, it is common to experience bloating, diarrhea, constipation, and indigestion. And worse, inflammatory bowel disease. Gut distress can make you miserable and can contribute to many other health problems! While many conventional treatments rarely make any lasting difference, a naturopathic approach addresses gut issues and emphasizes the healing power of nature.

One of the first steps in the naturopathic approach to addressing gut issues is to identify underlying imbalances in the gut environment. We may recommend Functional Medicine testing to measure things like food sensitivity and leaky gut. Other testing includes comprehensive digestive stool analysis that identifies imbalances in the microbiome/bacterial balance, digestive errors, inflammation, and SIBO testing to reveal excess fermentation in the small intestine.

Once potential triggers have been identified, we work with you to develop a personalized gut restoration plan that may include dietary changes, supplements, and lifestyle modifications. For example, if food sensitivities are identified, we may recommend an elimination diet to identify and remove trigger foods from your diet. We may also recommend probiotics and digestive enzymes, and sophisticated botanical supplements to support gut health and promote healthy digestion.

In addition to addressing physical symptoms, a naturopathic approach to gut health looks at mental and emotional stress and anxiety. Gut health impacts mood and stress resilience because your “feel good” chemicals such as serotonin are primarily produced in the gut! Restoring gut health can mean improving mood, energy and stress resilience!

We want you to know that there is hope. You don’t have to feel stuck or held back by your gut issues and other health challenges any longer. We believe that true wellness means freedom – the freedom to live your life to the fullest without being weighed down by fatigue, brain fog, and other symptoms that hold you back.

Imagine waking up in the morning feeling refreshed, energized, and ready to take on the day. Picture yourself feeling sharp and focused at work, engaging in activities you love, and spending quality time with your family and friends without worrying about your symptoms. You deserve to feel your best, and we’re here to help you achieve your health goals.
