Do you experience bloating after meals? Uncomfortable stomach pains? Indigestion? The feeling that food is not digesting well?
Have you tried all the things but still not sure what is causing these symptoms?
Maybe you’ve been told you have IBS and there’s not much you can do?
What is up with my gut??
I work with clients to find symptom relief from:
Leaky Gut: increase in intestinal permeability - not completely digested food particles can get through the intestinal lining that shouldn’t and cause symptoms
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS): intestinal disorder characterized by bloating, abdominal pain, constipation, and diarrhea
Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO): bacteria growing in the small intestine (where it should not be)
Celiac Disease: autoimmune reaction to gluten that can damage the lining of the small intestine
Food Allergies: an immune system reaction (often immediate) to a particular food
Food Intolerances: difficulty digesting particular foods that result in symptoms that can occur over time
So what do we do?
we must address the root causes in order to heal
Symptoms of DIGESTIVE ISSUES
burning sensation after meals
burping or bloating after meals
consistency of stool changes
loss of appetite
recurring sinus or ear infections
specific foods/beverages aggravate indigestion
stomach spasms or cramping during or after meals
uncomfortable fullness or pressure
Causes of DIGESTIVE ISSUES
The root cause of digestive issues can be related to a combination of the following:
eating foods to which you have allergies or intolerances
eating excessive sugar or inadequate protein
extensive antibiotic use
low levels of digestive enzymes
low stomach acid
oral contraceptives / birth control pills
organ system dysfunction, such as liver cirrhosis, chronic pancreatitis, or renal failure
overgrowth of bacteria or fungus
unresolved emotional pain or trauma
