Digestive Health

Digestive Nutrition

According to a recent survey, a majority of Americans live with digestive complications like diarrhea, gas, bloating, nausea and abdominal pain; and half of them never discuss it with their doctor.  Gastrointestinal (GI) issues can cause daily discomfort for people ranging from mildly uncomfortable to debilitating.  These GI distresses include a number of conditions that affect the digestive system, including constipation, diarrhea, heartburn (GERD), irritable bowel syndrome, ulcers, SIBO, gallstones, hemorrhoids, food intolerances, Celiac disease, and inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative Colitis.

When digestive health is compromised, we can face major health consequences related to inadequate break down and malabsorption of our foods, food reactions and gut dysbiosis.  Many factors can impact our digestive system including inflammation, malnutrition, stress, pharmaceuticals, alcohol, nutrient deficiencies, pathogenic bacteria, bacterial balance and specific compounds in foods.  Compromised digestion can influence our mood, our physical health, our skin and our energy.  Thankfully, many digestive disorders are very responsive to changes in diet and lifestyle.

I can help you identify root causes of your digestive distress by looking at food sensitivities, allergies or intolerances, stool tests, nutrient deficiencies, lifestyle factors, eating patterns and problematic foods, while also including specific foods for improved gut health.  We will look at ways to implement dietary protocols and possible supplementation to decrease digestive symptoms and help you feel better physically, mentally and emotionally.
