How many of you, or know someone, who experiences daily digestive problems?
60-70 million people in the US suffer with digestive issues. 1:5 people in this country deal with – gas, bloating, stomach pain, constipation, diarrhea, on a regular basis. While they are extremely common… they are NOT normal.
So many patients go to the Doctor and they have all of the tests done. Only to find out that there is “nothing wrong”. Many then receive the diagnosis of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) or Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), and there is “no known cause”.
Treatments usually include medications: antibiotics, anti-inflammatories and biologics that can have a host of side effects. They are also just managing the symptoms - with Metamucil, miralax (which is polyethelyne glycol). It binds to water and pulls it out of the body to create a softer stool. It can cause dehydration and electrolyte imbalances. It is also a common allergen and can cause severe reactions.
None of these target the true cause of the issues, and that is how we are different.
Constipation: Build up of toxins in liver, intestines, and fat cells. This decreases the metabolism and natural detoxification of the body. The digestive tract and lymphatic system become slow and sluggish, and there is decreased movement.
Bloating after eating: Decreased HCL in the stomach. Parasites, abnormal amounts of bacteria in small intestine. The small intestine likes everything broken down well when food reaches this area. If not, and larger pieces of food arrive, then this causes gas and bloating.
Look at what you are eating and journal when the bloating occurs. That can give us clues to the cause.
Diarrhea: Caused by parasites, food intolerances, and/or chemical toxicity.
Inflammation: SO many causes. Mold, chemicals, parasites, food, bacteria overgrowth, stress – We can muscle test and Quantum test to see exactly what is the cause, and what supplements and dietary modifications need to be added to handle the cause and support the body.
We can test in person or remotely! So many of our patients have been getting amazing results in just a few months.
One young woman had been told that there was nothing that could be done for her chronic abdominal pain, constipation and low energy. After seeing me for the past 6 weeks, she has a bowel movement every day, has no pain, is sleeping great and started running again after over 6 months!
