Services     Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a common gastrointestinal disorder that sometimes causes significant discomfort even though it is not a serious threat. Typical symptoms include abdominal bloating and soreness, gas and alternating diarrhea and constipation. People with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) are more likely than others to have backaches, fatigue and several other seemingly unrelated problems.

There is some new research that points to bacterial overgrowth to be a cause of IBS. Called SIBO, bacteria overgrow in the small intestine and create lots of gas and bloating. It also decreases the absorption of nutrients and creates inflammation which can lead to "leaky gut".

Digestive issues are one of the most important things to address, not just for the specific discomfort that they present, but also because the gut is the foundation of our health. We can trace many of our chronic diseases to a dysfunction in the intestinal tract. 

We treat gastrointestinal disorders with comprehensive protocols, that include dietary changes, removal of food sensitivities, herbs, stool testing and more.
