Conventional Approaches to Treating Gut Issues
Have you already seen your primary care doctor about your chronic gut issues, only to be given a prescription to deal with the symptoms and told to come back in 4 weeks if things aren’t better?
Are you still dealing with bloating, stomach upset, or even fatigue and brain fog?
Or perhaps you have had some testing done, only to find that the results were “normal”?
While these tests can be important to rule out serious diseases, they don’t pick up some of the most common causes of digestive dysfunction, including hidden food sensitivities, digestive yeast overgrowth, and dysbiosis (imbalances in your gut bacteria).
There are so many reasons why you may be experiencing chronic digestive distress, and unless you understand the true root cause, you won’t know how to fix it for good!
Getting To The Root Cause Of Symptoms
There are many common digestive symptoms, including bloating, gassiness, diarrhea, constipation, and abdominal pain, and they may be caused by very different mechanisms that require a specialized approach.
Your health is deeply linked to your microbiome (the bacteria and other microbes that live in your gut).
The bacteria in your gut help you digest your food, keep your colon cells healthy, regulate your immune system, fight harmful bacteria and yeast, and even make some important vitamins, like B12, thiamine (B1) and riboflavin (B2).
They also produce important neurotransmitters (mood chemicals) that allow for proper brain function. This is why people with poor gut health often report brain fog and mood symptoms!
Unfortunately, these new advances in science take around 17 years to find their way into doctors’ practices, so you may not have been offered this testing. We are able to offer more comprehensive testing and treatment protocols so that you can finally get your energy back and be free of your symptoms.
The Functional Medicine Approach to Treating Gut Issues
The functional medicine approach to healing you gut involves advanced lab testing, followed by creation of a custom-tailored protocol to bring your body back into balance.
Since the gut impacts your health on so many levels, it’s often the first place we focus on when we explore your case.
We often hear patients say things like “I have a sensitive stomach”, which seems to have become an accepted term for “just grin and bear it”.
But it could actually indicate a serious problem that might have far-reaching consequences for your overall health.
At Signature Wellness, our expert team is trained to investigate your digestive symptoms and create an effective treatment plan based on your lab test results.
