Digestive Health and
Irritable Bowel Symdrome (IBS) Easing Symptoms Naturally

Proper digestion and absorption of nutrients is vital to the well-being of children and adults.  When the process in which the body absorbs nutrients is compromised, a host of negative health effects begin to occur which can lead to chronic digestive issues.  Often, poor diet and lifestyle habits are the triggers to many of the digestive issues people encounter, with chronic diarrhea and constipation at the forefront. 

 

At the center of these issues is “Leaky Gut Syndrome” or intestinal permeability, a condition in which the mucosal lining of the small intestine becomes brittle and permeable through repeated abuse from poor diet, ingestion of chemicals and food additives and absorption of environmental toxins.  As food is ingested, nutrients are naturally absorbed through the lining of our intestinal wall into the bloodstream.  Should this intestinal lining become permeable, the bloodstream is introduced to foreign substances such as undigested food and other toxins. This introduction triggers your body’s immune response which can begin to cause a vast array of negative outcomes.

 

Leaky Gut Syndrome is often linked to the following common conditions:

 

   Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

   Food Allergies and Food Sensitivities

   Eczema

   Hives

   Candida (yeast overgrowth)

   Headaches

   Irritability

•   Fatigue

   Arthritis

 

The Wellness Philosophy employs a multi-tiered approach to easing your symptoms and building a strong gastrointestinal environment.  Diet alteration, supplementation and lab testing may be necessary to determine the best pathway for each individual patient.
