Is Chronic Digestive Distress Affecting Your Life?

GI disorders affect more people in the United States than those who suffer from heart disease, AIDS and cancer combined. Over 74% of Americans have lived with some type of GI-related symptoms for more than six months. Next to the common cold, GI discomfort is the most common reason people seek medical advice or turn to over-the-counter remedies

Health (And Disease) Starts in the Gut

GI health = (healthy diet + physical activity + sleep) - (poor diet + alcohol + tobacco + sugar + caffeine + stress)

 

GI functions:

  • digesting and absorbing the nutrients within the food and beverages we consume.

  • coordination of enzymes, acids, bile salts, peristaltic action, transporters, and microbial biotransformation.

  • immune function.

 

Each step in the process of digestion is important, as it only requires a deficiency in one or a few micronutrients to lead to metabolic dysfunction.

Assessing GI Health Imbalances

 

Our team has many tools to assess and treat GI dysfunction. One of the popular functional medicine approaches for GI-related conditions is the 5R approach: Remove, Replace, Reinoculate, Repair & Rebalance.

The Remove step restricts toxic, pro-inflammatory and potentially allergic foods from the diet, and eliminates harmful organisms. The traditional approach is to add a prescription medication to the body, but often the best medicine for our GI tract is in elimination and allowing the system to rest.

After the critical Remove step, our team can then help you address the need to Replace with digestive aids, Reinoculate with probiotics, and Repair a damaged GI tract.

As a prospective patient, you may wonder about additional costs not included in our program fee.

 

Labs:

We know that you’ve likely been to other providers before that may have already run lab tests. That’s why during our comprehensive intake consultation, we will review any existing lab results – so that we can determine if additional, more advanced lab testing is needed to confirm a diagnosis.

 

Supplements:

Although supplements can't make up for a poor lifestyle, we may recommend certain pharmaceutical - grade supplements to support your body’s innate healing process.

What Should I Expect From The Initial Appointment?

Before the initial paid appointment, you will complete our extensive background history forms so we can properly review your history and lab results.

 

During the appointment, we will review your completed intake form, medical history, current and past lab tests – as well as any medications taken, so that we can arrive at a baseline assessment of your overall health and nutritional status. If needed, we may decide on more advanced lab tests to confirm (or rule out) a specific diagnosis, so we can create a personalized treatment protocol.
