Naturopathic Doctors at KIH can help!
Much of the problem is that we live in such a busy world. Being chronically stressed and on the go makes processed foods, quick meals, and take out a practical option. With the ever-changing food industry, we are commonly being exposed to genetically modified foods, pesticides and preservatives that can alter our digestive system. Changes in our body such as bloating, gas, heartburn, constipation and/or diarrhea are all signs from your body that something is wrong. IBS (irritable bowel disease), IBD (inflammatory bowel disease), celiac disease, and even more common symptoms such as heartburn/GERD and bloating complaints have become increasingly prevalent in today’s society. Fortunately there are ways to manage these conditions and symptoms through healthy lifestyle modifications and supplement regimes.
Our digestive wellness approach is designed to first identify key triggers that may be contributing to your symptoms. This is accomplished through a a complete assessment, physical exam and potentially additional laboratory tests.
Once the root issues are uncovered, we provide our patients with practical treatment guidelines based on the 4 R’s approach to decrease symptoms and help heal your digestive tract (remove, replace, re-inoculate, repair).
These Naturopathic Treatments typically include one or a combination of:
- Nutritional recommendations
- Supplements or herbal remedies
- Helpful lifestyle modifications
- Intravenous vitamin drip treatments may also be discussed because a decreased absorption of nutrients often results from digestive issues.
With a healthy gut, you will notice improved energy levels, improved sleep, and much less digestive discomfort.
