Digestive Issues

Man with stomach issues

Are you suffering from constipation or diarrhea, bloating, digestive issues after eating?

You’re not alone! Stomach problems make daily life uncomfortable.

Digestive issues have become increasingly more popular, and with good reasons. Our low fiber high sugar diets are filled with toxins, impurities and additives. We overuse medications to feel better, and we’re constantly exposed to environmental toxins.

All of these things are damaging the health of your gut and causing your stomach and constipation problems.

I have been practicing functional medicine in Overland Park, KS, helping thousands of people just like you find relief from digestive issues so you can lead a normal and healthy life.

Let’s face it, living with digestive issues makes everything about life more difficult. The constant bloating, embarrassing gas, and overall discomfort make doing the things you’ve always loved harder.

Finding The Cause Of Digestive Issues

It’s difficult to find healing if you don’t know what is causing the issue. Treating the symptoms only gives you temporary relief from the symptoms and does not address the actual problem.

There can be a number of reasons for your digestive issues - inflammatory foods, food allergies, hormone imbalances, certain medications, poor gut health, and many other contributing factors.

We must identify the cause in order to create an effective treatment plan. Here are just a few of the many different types of digestive issues that you may be experiencing - Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), Celiac Disease, Crohn’s Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and Diverticulitis.

We want to help you recover from your digestive issues without covering it up or just taking the symptom away!

Yes, taking medications will relieve your symptoms, but they will not correct the problem, and you’ll continue to deal with this until you take action.

We will guide you through the process of detecting and eliminating foods that may trigger your symptoms and replace them with foods that offer soothing healing benefit. We will help you identify stressors that contribute to poor digestive health and work towards incorporating a simple to follow step by step healing program.

How To Help Digestion

Our bodies are amazing and resilient when given the building blocks they need to begin healing without medications. However, it’s more than just changing the foods that you eat.

You need to heal your gut by eliminating the offending foods, adding superior and specific nutritional supplements that your body lacks, and promoting good gut bacteria.

Here are some things that you can begin doing right now,

  1. Eat whole foods and less processed foods.
  2. Eliminate the foods that cause you discomforts, such as dairy, corn, soy, eggs, and gluten.
  3. Incorporate more fermented foods in your diet.
  4. Reduce the amount or better yet, avoid refined sugar all together.

These are simple changes that you can begin making to your diet today to begin the process of healing your digestive disorders so you can begin to feel better again.

I understand how overwhelming it can be navigating through all this. There’s a lot to understand. We can help you uncover not only the cause of your digestive issues but, also find the relief you desire and begin the road to healthy and happy digestion.

Patient Testimonials

Dr Don Sharnowski is a doctor who is above and beyond all other doctors! Probably his most outstanding quality is that he LISTENS to what his patients say. He is willing to explain things to his patients in terms they can understand. Dr Don treats his patients with wisdom, understanding, gentleness, care, encouragement and he is willing to "go the extra mile" to give his patients the proper treatment they need. He does not treat patients like they were on an assembly line or like he is rushing them out the door. Dr Don has fixed many of the problems I had at my first visit, one of which I had endured for 3 years. Dr Don was able to fix that problem in 2 weeks when others had not. Dr Don has also helped me loose 40 lbs so far. My total recovery is still an ongoing process, but should be a cinch with Dr Don's expert help! Thank you, Dr Don! You are an awesome answer to prayers!

Super Awesome Doctor in Overland Park, Kansas!! He really knows his stuff love his Holistic approach. Wish I lived closer so I could see him on the regular, at least we can chat on the regular! Very informative in all aspects of health! Five years ago this man took our health and turned it around 360 degrees. My son got ear infections very often. Both my boys have respiratory issues. My husband asthma and overweight. Myself aches and pains, specifically on my left side and joints. Well needless to say no more ear infections respiratory not nearly as often my husband is 80lbs less and never uses his inhaler . My sons ear infections...What ear infections...They are no longer! Thanks Dr. Don for all you do and have done!!

Dr Don Sharnowski is truly an amazing Doctor. He listens to his patients and treats in a very complete way. He is very knowledgeable because he never stops learning. He is a great communicator and will help you learn better ways to be healthy if you will actually do what he teaches.

Don (Dr Sharnowski) is truly one of a kind. He is warm, inviting and incredibly generous with his time, but also really knowledgeable about the body and everything within. You won't find crystal balls here. You'll find a super nice guy in sneakers who also sells farm fresh eggs at the counter. I went in expecting to get adjusted (and was scared, because I'd never seen a chiro before). Instead, what I experienced was someone who actually sat down and listened to my history, connected the dots between several ailments (instead of jumping to prescribe one drug apiece to treat each one), and explained things that no one had ever taken the time to do. I was there about my back specifically, but we talked about my whole health. Instead of just prescribing an anti inflammatory (which is what my other doc did), he explained why we get inflammation in our bodies, and how to help reduce it with what we eat. I've also been on thyroid medication for over 10 years, and he actually explained what the thyroid is, and what the drug I take is, and what it does. But not in a defensive or overly crunchy way. He just openly explained in a way that I could understand it. I highly recommend Don to anyone with a body who wants to feel better. His approach is approachably holistic. Just common sense, whole body-centered treatment.
