“Go with your gut” rings true for multiple reasons. Our gastrointestinal system is diverse, spanning from our mouth to our anus, and has been found to be the greatest factor in our overall immune function. When the digestive system is healed, patients typically report less frequent and less intense illness.
Nutrition is the foundation of naturopathic medicine considering what a person eats affects their digestion, mood, and overall health. Nutritional expertise is typically offered during comprehensive appointments since a patient’s diet is one of the greatest healing tools within their control.
Proper healing of the digestive system is essential for overall health. Allergies and rashes may not be thought of as a GI issue, yet when gastro-intestinal health is restored, these issues typically resolve.
Dr. E has observed great results in patients with the following conditions when GI healing was addressed:
- Abdominal pain
- Acid reflux
- Allergies (IgG and IgM, not necessarily IgE)
- Auto-immune diseases
- Frequent illness
- Hiatal hernias
- Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
- Urinary tract infections
