Digestive Health: The Key to Optimal Wellness
“All disease start in the gut.” – Hippocrates
Do you struggle with your digestive health and have symptoms of – Gas, Bloating, Constipation, Diarrhea, Abdominal Pain, Reflux, Nausea?
The practitioners at Inspired Health are leaders at getting to the root cause of your digestive health symptoms. We practice a new model of medicine that utilizes the highest quality diagnostic tools and technology from conventional medicine, as well as emerging functional medicine testing and tools that help us identify key imbalances that are the root of chronic illness.
We utilize traditional and functional testing to determine the root cause of your digestive health concerns
Some examples of functional medicine tests we use:
- Specialized Gastrointestinal (GI) Function Profile (stool sample)
- S.I.B.O. Breath Test (Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth)
- Leaky Gut Screening – Intestinal Permeability (IgG serum test – Cyrex Labs)
- Gluten Immune System Reactivity / Food Sensitivity Testing (IgG serum test – Cyrex Labs)
Did you know?
- 70% of your Immune system is housed in your gut
- 90% of your serotonin neurotransmitter receptor sites are on the cells that line your gut
- Serotonin neurotransmitters are the chemicals in your body that make you feel GOOD!
- The Gut-Brain Axis is the missing link in depression
- Your gut holds 3-5 pounds of bacteria (the gut microbiome), and that anything that the cells of your body can do, the beneficial bacteria in and on your body can also do
- Leaky Gut predisposes you to Autoimmune disease
- You have more genetics in your gut flora than you do your entire body
Inflammation + Leaky Gut
“Leaky gut” or intestinal hyper-permeability, is at the root of a range of health problems, from asthma and insomnia to Crohn’s disease, celiac disease, food sensitivities / allergies and rheumatoid arthritis. America’s leading gastroenterologists confirm that leaky gut exists, however, it’s a diagnosis that isn’t taught in medical school. Traditional medical practitioners admit that they don’t know much about the disease, or how to recognize leaky gut symptoms.
The practitioners at Inspired Health are experts in treating many digestive health symptoms, including leaky gut syndrome. Leaky gut leads to inflammation, and inflammation is the #1 common denominator for all chronic disease.
Leaky gut triggers an inflammatory alarm response, which affects people differently. For one person, it might be cystic acne, for another, Hashimoto’s Hypothyroid and with another person, irritable bowel syndrome or disease.
