I hear it frequently from my patients: “I feel bloated, my stomach hurts, and I feel confused about what to eat” Most have tried to track their food yet find themselves spinning in circles, unsure which foods are the problem.
Having to worry about what to eat and everything else that is going on in our world is an added stress.
The best way to approach this is to look at your whole digestive process, and not only what you just ate.
Frequently it is not only bloating and irregularity that makes you miserable. It can also be brain fog, sluggishness, or additional weight gain that can happen. Or sometimes, it is just the feeling you are not digesting your food.
Our bodies work as a system. Addressing the complete digestive system and not just one part is a surer way to create lasting change. Using an extensive screening questionnaire, advanced lab testing, supplements, and diet changes, we can evaluate the areas that need support.
It’s not about tums or the acid blockers, nor is it about limiting more and more food choices. The focus is on creating a healthy digestive process from the moment you put food in your mouth. Your microbiome is the foundation of your health. Making sure every part of this is optimize affects your overall health and dramatically impacts your daily life.
