GI disorders affect more people in the United States than those who suffer from heart disease, AIDS and cancer combined. Next to the common cold, GI discomfort is the most common reason people seek medical advice or turn to over-the-counter remedies. Over 74% of Americans have lived with some type of GI-related symptoms for more than six months:
- Bloating & gas
- IBS / IBD
- SIBO / Dysbiosis
- Leaky gut
- CELIAC DISEASE
- Brain Fog
- Stress, anxiety, depression
- acne, eczema, psoriasis
- chronic fatigue
- allergies, asthma
- thyroid disorders
- ULCERATIVE COLITIS
Our team has many tools to assess and treat GI dysfunction. One of the popular functional medicine approaches for GI-related conditions is the 5R Approach: Remove, Replace, Re-Inoculate, Repair & Rebalance.
The Remove step restricts toxic, pro-inflammatory and potentially allergic foods from the diet, and eliminates harmful organisms. The traditional approach is to add a prescription medication to the body, but often the best medicine for our GI tract is in elimination and allowing the system to rest.
After the critical Remove step, our team can then help you address the need to Replace with digestive aids, Re-Inoculate with probiotics, and Repair a damaged GI tract.
