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.
