What Causes Digestive Issues?
Digestive problems are very common. They vary widely among conditions and can have a negative effect on other aspects of health. In fact many negative health issues can stem from digestive trouble. Someone with digestive issues may most commonly experience bloating, gas, nausea and abnormalities in bowel movements. Still, a person with digestive issues may not notice them due to more subtle symptoms. A common cause of digestive issues is poor diet and improper substances put into the digestive tract. More specific causes would need to be identified by a healthcare professional.
Our Treatment Options
With all health conditions we work to identify the underlying cause of the problem and offer effective customized treatments. Traditional medications meant to help digestion can do more harm than good with negative side effects. At Equilibrium Natural Health we practice the very best of digestive health treatments. Naturopathic doctors are sometimes termed 'the stomach doctor' because digestion is an important area of health that we address with every patient.
We usually start by evaluating a patient's diet habits and the things they are commonly putting into their stomach. With the metabolic test, performed with each new patient, we identify what foods will best suit them on an individual basis based on their metabolic type. Additionally we'll recommend a number of supplements that will also aid in clearing up digestive issues. As we evaluate all aspects of a patient's health we'll utilize remedies to treat underlying contributors to their symptoms. Often as a patient's digestion improves, we see other health issues dissipate as well; such as lack of energy or mood. Treating digestive issues is highly customized to each patient.
