GI & Digestive Problems

No one is immune from the occasional stomach ache. However, prolonged or irregular issues with your gut and stomach could be the signs of serious digestive problems that could be the root cause of many chronic diseases.

Importance of Healthy Digestion

The foundation of good health lies in proper digestive function. All other health factors can be undermined if you don’t digest and absorb nutrients well. A basic principle of functional medicine is that all disease begins in the gut, and from there the logical conclusion is all treatment begins with fixing the gut. Any therapeutic program will be of limited value without good digestive function.

These are signs that your digestive system may not be working properly:

  • gas and bloating
  • any skin condition (e.g., acne, psoriasis, dry skin, eczema)
  • tired or sleepy after eating
  • undigested food in your stool
  • constipation, diarrhea or both
  • headaches or migraines
  • reflux or GERD
  • chronic bad breath
  • depression

Digestive complaints account for billions of dollars yearly in over the counter and prescription medications. We believe that the digestive system is the key organ to human health and is paramount to the success of resolving any chronic health issue.
