Digestive Health Problems and Bowel Problems – A Case Study

Digestive Health Problems – A Case Study – Can I risk it?  Should I go out for a long bike ride?  Will my problem kick in?  If I don’t go, I’ll be grumpy all day, and my wife says it’s getting to be too much.  But the urge started again, I better stay home so I can be near a restroom.   Looks like I’m working from home, which means I’ll miss that important meeting.

Digestive Health Problems and how it can impact your life.

Does that sound familiar?  Ok, maybe you don’t cycle like Mike does.  However, what have you given up doing the things you love because your digestive health is lacking.  This was Mike’s life.  Of course, it didn’t start out that way.  He started out simply missing a day here and there.  Then his problem progressed to a couple of times per month.  Lastly, it advanced to several days per week.  Mike’s passion, aside from his family, is cycling.  He is a life-long cycler.  Cycling gives Mike a peace and freedom he knows nowhere else.

Sadly, it all came to a halt when his digestive health problems intensified.  Mike is a patient in my office.  However, he started out as a chiropractic patient.  At first, cycling would aggravate his lower back.  The right combination of chiropractic care with home exercises alleviated his back issues.  However, Mike told me he was going from specialist to specialist regarding his bowel problems.  I told him about enzyme nutrition, and how it can support normal digestive health in a private setting.  While he wanted to discuss it further, I promised I would never pressure him.  Mike underwent a consultation.  The results showed promise that he was a good candidate for care.

He Wasn’t Sure…

However, Mike was skeptical.  After all, what does a Chiropractic Physician know about digestive health and nutrition?  I explained to Mike that I have over 200 hours of post-graduate education in nutrition alone, and that Medical Doctors these days receive less than five hours.  After that, I left it alone.  Months later, during a routine appointment, Mike explained that he was upset about his last checkup with his GI specialists.  As it turns out, according to Mike, the specialists took a lot of time explaining the problem.  However, according to Mike, they offered no real solution.  Mike was furious, “What’s the point of naming my condition if they can’t do anything about it?”

Mike finally decided to undergo enzyme nutrition testing.  In Mike’s case, he was lacking astringent enzymes in his digestive tract.  Additionally, the mucosal lining in his large intestine was compromised.  Together, these issues caused Mike’s digestive health problems.  Once Mike started taking the right enzymes and made the right dietary changes, he was back on his bike in no time.  In fact, Mike refers to his enzymes as “magic little pills.” (Disclaimer – his words, not mine).  In fact, I explained that there was no magic behind the enzyme supplements, only science.  The enzyme supplements help his digestive system work properly and support a healthy mucous layer in his colon.  However, he still refers to them as “magic pills”.

A Phone Call…

A few weeks later I got a phone call from a woman I whose voice I didn’t recognize.  It was Mike’s wife.  I met or spoke with her prior to that day.  She was in tears.  I asked her what was wrong, and she exclaimed “Nothing!  I just wanted to thank you for saving my husband’s life and our marriage.  He’s back on his bike, he’s happier, has more energy, and I love him like the day I met him.  I just wanted to tell you how grateful I was.”  I have to admit, after speaking with her, I teared up a little myself.

If so, contact us and set up a consultation or call us at 425-868-0120.  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, which is trusted by both NASA and Cancer Treatment Centers of America.  This will 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.
