Digestive and Immune Health

Chron’s disease is another odd digestive problem that has a wide variety of signs.  These ailments include abdominal pain, unhealthy weight loss, fever and diarrhea just to name a few.  In fact, they can have a severe impact on your work, family and fun.

Did you know that Chron’s disease typically starts with an abnormal response by your immune system?  Basically, excess inflammation causes your immune system to overreact and attack your gut.  Crohn’s disease affects between 400,000 and 600,000 people in the U.S. alone.  This problem begins in the gut and eventually affects your immune system.  Your immune system, in turn, attacks the intestines. While it was previously thought of as an autoimmune disease, recent studies show that it is really an immune deficiency.

The common medical treatment involves medication.  Unfortunately these drugs have two problems.  First, they only manage the symptoms.  Secondly, they have some serious side effects.  These side effects include: frequent infections, hepatitis B, problems in the brain, heart failure, liver problems, psoriasis and blood problems.  Of course the problem with this is that it never really addresses the actual problem.

When dealing with problems like this, it’s important to remember that your immune health relies on your gut health. Excessive inflammation from a poor diet can damage your gut health.  And this, in turn leads to immune system problems.

Our Approach to Gut Health

Your immune and digestive functions are a direct result of a healthy digestive health.  And while I don’t diagnose or treat any disease (including Chron’s disease), I can help support a proper working body.  This of course includes digestive and immune health.  And of course we can provide this support with a specific plan.  This plan usually includes custom dietary changes and the correct enzyme supplements. Of course I only make recommendations after scientific testing based on sound medical principles.

Are you concerned about digestive health?  Or maybe you’re worried about your immune function. Do you spend hours or days at home waiting for your problems to subside? Are you missing out on work family or fun? If so, give us a call and set up a consultation. I will personally sit down with you and talk about your suffering and how it affects your life. I will even do some preliminary testing as well as Bio Impedance Analysis (BIA). In fact did you know that both NASA and Cancer Treatment Centers of America rely on BIA? These tests help me determine if you are a good candidate for care. If you’re not, we’ll make every effort to provide the proper referral.

A promise to our patients

If you decide to call us and set up a consultation, we will prove direct, personal attention in a peaceful and unrushed atmosphere. We are dedicated to helping you reclaim your healthy lifestyle without harmful drugs or surgery.
