Do you often deal with inflammation, bloating, or other digestive issues? If so, you may have a digestive disorder. Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is one of the most common digestive disorders. At The Gut Authority, we use holistic techniques to help you recover from the symptoms and get back to feeling better.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome occurs when there is inflammation in your intestines. Your intestinal wall has a lining of muscles. These muscles contract to push food through your digestive tract. Food and other harmful factors can weaken the intestinal wall as well as the contractions. When this happens, you can experience diarrhea, cramping, or constipation.
There are several factors that contribute to IBS. The main causes are:
People who struggle with IBS often deal with diarrhea, constipation, and severe abdominal cramps. Severe symptoms can lead to weight loss or rectal bleeding. Your gut should have a balance of healthy bacteria to work properly. If there is a disruption in the balance, it can lead to issues like IBS.
We believe that health and wellness begin in the gut. Our approach to medicine focuses on restoring balance in the gut so clients can recover from digestive disorders. We believe that each client is unique, therefore, our approach is as well.
Our functional medicine plan includes making a nutrition plan with you. Once we help you eliminate trigger foods, you can begin restoring your gut health. Replacing trigger foods with healing foods will renew your energy and get you back to living life again.
If you’ve been diagnosed with IBS, we encourage you to contact us today. The team at The Gut Authority will use functional medicine to help you naturally recover from your symptoms. We look forward to helping you enjoy life.
