Irritable Bowel Syndrome: is your body trying to tell you something?

Many of us struggle with chronic digestive irregularities, whether it be gas & indigestion, bloating, heartburn, constipation, or irregular bowel movements.  If you have been clinically diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) or not, you may fall under the IBS spectrum of disease. If your bowel movements frequently alternate between constipation & loose stools that is a sign your guts could use some digestive support, and us Naturopathic Doctors can fix that no problem. 

I see patients all the time who have been dealing with digestive discomfort for years. With dietary, nutritional, or herbal support, we are often able to successfully relieve IBS symptoms. Even persons with more severe digestive pathology such as Crohn’s or Colitis can benefit from some simple dietary modifications. In cases of more stubborn chronic digestive issues, we can use specific diagnostic tests to help us diagnose what is actually happening in your gut. These tests include blood tests for food allergies and sensitivities, stool analysis to assess for yeast/candida, or pathogenic vs. healthy (probiotic) bacteria, or a breath test to check for intestinal bacterial overgrowth (aka SIBO). If you or someone you know suffers from chronic indigestion, your body may be trying to warn you of an underlying microbial imbalance, or a simple unknown food sensitivity.  There is hope! A Naturopathic Doctor can help treat the underlying causes of digestive issues.
