Gastrointestinal Wellness Treatments
As you’re probably aware, the digestive system is complex and has the primary function of eliminating waste from the body. It also collects and absorbs nutrients from the food and drinks we consume. Think of how powerful and important this system is, yet it is often an afterthought in conventional medicine. If we use your car as an example; without the proper fuel (gas) for combustion (energy) and the elimination of leftovers of this process (exhaust), your car will not function as you need it to. Now think of how complicated your body is with trillions of cells in multiple systems with endless sources of food and drink (fuel) and environmental toxins. It is easy to see how essential the process of digestion is and how easy it is for this to slide off the rails and make your body function at a suboptimal level.
Estimates show that 1 in 5 Americans are directly affected by a digestive issue.
However, a much higher percentage are affected with impaired health in some other system in their body that directly relates back to poor overall gut health. It is important to understand exactly what is going on in your gut that is leading to many of your health conditions. There are many triggers that bombard our intestinal environment every day that can immediately affect our gut health or slowly lead to impaired gut health over the years. Some of these conditions may lead to leaky gut, malabsorption, microflora overgrowth (Candida), or IBS, which can all lead to impaired health throughout the body. The goal of our protocol is to stop the negative cycle and restore your health completely. One of our medical gut health experts will take a thorough medical history to understand what the best medical steps would be for you and guide you toward optimal health.

Our program to wellness utilizes 3 components; remove, repair and replenish.
We will help determine what is causing the Gi imbalance, whether it be microorganisms, physical damage or food intolerance, and remove the problem. Next, we will develop a plan to repair the structural damage to the gut, as well as any other systems, using herbs, nutrients, or peptides. Finally, we will educate you on how to replenish your gut with proper food intake as well as key nutrients like vitamins, minerals and “good” bacteria. Once you have completed this program, you will have restored your gut health, eliminated the underlying cause for many of your health problems and will be on the road to living the life that you deserve.
