Gut health: the foundation of wellness
Rebuild your gut. Reboot your life.
A healthy gut is the foundation of wellness. Our guts are literally at the center of our bodies, and they are responsible for breaking down everything we eat to make sure we get the nutrients we need to function. Because of the intimate gut-brain connection, our guts also play a huge role in how we think and feel. Small wonder then that most chronic disease are rooted in poor gut health.
Exploring the Crucial Role of Gut Health in Chronic Illness and Well-being
Whenever I see a new patient, one of the first things I do is assess how well their gut is working. Patients come in my door seeking help for almost every chronic illness imaginable, but whatever the reason, they are almost inevitably suffering from gut trouble. Most are experiencing symptoms for gut health conditions ranging from leaky gut syndrome to IBS—but the specific diagnosis is less important than the information that something about your digestion is off, and needs to be healed.
Identifying and Addressing Common Digestive Symptoms
Some of the most common symptoms of poor gut health include:
- Abdominal pain

However, gut disorders also frequently cause seemingly unrelated problems, including:
- Chronic disease
- Autoimmune disorders
- Weight gain
- Joint pain
- Brain fog
- Memory loss
- Low sex drive
- Poor immune function
Revitalizing Your Gut Health
As you can see, poor gut health can wreak havoc on your whole body. However, the causes of gut trouble are often fairly simple to determine: poor diet, stress, antibiotic use, parasites and exposure to mold and biotoxins are some of the most common culprits. All of these are treatable, even curable problems. No matter how beat up your gut may be, it’s not too late.
Nurturing Gut Healing through Natural Therapies
I can help heal your gut using natural methods that are both safe and effective. One of the first things I try with my patients is an elimination diet for a short time. Many find that this alone results in half of their symptoms disappearing. In addition, I use labs, nutrition and supplements of probiotics to repair the lining of your gut, and treat you for exposure to biotoxins and parasites. Over time, we completely rebuild your gut from the ground up!
Restoring your gut really can change everything.
As your gut starts to heal, you may notice that your body as a whole begins to follow suit. Chronic health problems that may have been with you for years often start to fade away, your weight normalizes, and you begin to experience more energy, vigor and clarity of mind. This is all normal—for someone with a healthy gut!
