Digestive disorders involve symptoms that can range from discomforting to debilitating. People suffer with bloating, gas, abdominal pain, cramping, constipation and diarrhea. If you have IBS or an inflammatory bowel disease such as ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s, you may feel like you live on a roller coaster ride. Periods of flare-ups and remissions often seem impossible to predict or control. It’s especially frustrating for patients who undergo surgery or take medication only to find themselves, once again facing unresolved symptoms.
Aside from medication or surgery, there aren’t many lasting conventional therapies or support for digestive disorders. There are means by whichsymptoms can hopefully be resolved, but they give little options to help the body heal itself. A functional approach to digestive disorders by contrastfocuses on just that: restoring function as much as possible, correcting imbalances, and enabling the patient to achieve and sustain optimal health naturally.
Functional medicine is an excellent choice for people struggling with digestive disorders. While you may have concluded there is no way to know what’s causing your condition and that causes don’t matter, this is not true.
It is very possible to identify the triggers behind flare-ups, to understand exactly what is going on in your body related to your digestive health, and to minimize and even eliminate the occurrence of very stubborn symptoms.
The key to achieving results lies in knowledge gleaned through testing. In-depth testing enables a practitioner trained in advanced biomarker testing to identify causes at the cellular level. Once you are thoroughly and properly evaluated, it is possible todesign a customized therapeutic support plan that is safe and effective. There’s no need to take a ‘wait and see’ approach with this type of plan. The results are measurable. You feelbetter as your health condition improves.
