HEAL YOUR GUT
Do you feel constantly bloated throughout the day?
Are you experiencing diarrhea or constipation on a regular basis?
Do you feel like certain foods upset your stomach or lead to acid reflux or heartburn?
Do you get regular stomach pain or cramping?
Finding yourself worrying about where the bathroom is when traveling or dining?
Are you suffering from IBS, Crohn’s or Colitis?
Digestive concerns are one of primary reasons people seek out Naturopathic care and is something that I understand intimately and treat very successfully. Naturopathic Medicine offers a number of valuable assessment tools to properly identify the cause of digestive upset and initiate a personalize treatment plan:
- Food sensitivity testing
- Breath tests for small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO)
- Celiac testing
- Comprehensive stool analysis
Dietary Modifications to Eliminate Irritants
To heal the gut and restore optimal digestive health, quite often dietary modification to eliminate food sensitivities and irritants is the most effective strategy. As part of your treatment plan, I try to make simple but effective changes that take your lifestyle and preferences into consideration.
Targeted Supplementation & Botanical Medicine
Selecting the most effective and appropriate supplements and botanicals ensures that you are taking the right product at the right dose for your particular needs. This purposeful prescription can be very useful at healing the gut and restoring digestive function.
Stress Management Techniques
Stress quite often contributes to the development and aggravation of digestive concerns. Learning effective and simple techniques to manage stress is a key part of all treatment plans.
Studies have shown that acupuncture is effective in a wide range of gastrointestinal disorders including nausea and vomiting, functional disorders (irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, bloating and diarrhea), peptic ulcer disease, Crohn’s and Colitis.
Intravenous Infusion Therapy
Intravenous (IV) infusion therapy, also known as parenteral nutrition, infuses fluid and essential nutrients directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive tract and liver.
IV therapy is often conducted when patients require additional nutrients as a result of illnesses or other medical conditions. Each IV vitamin treatment is tailored to your individual needs, since different conditions often require different nutrients.
Certain health conditions like Celiac disease, Crohn’s disease and IBS can make it even harder for the intestines to absorb and retain essential vitamins and minerals. IV vitamin therapy has 100% absorption and your body will feel the difference.
