Digestive Health


 

Overview

Gastrointestinal (GI) disorders can be painful, disruptive, and embarrassing. GI problems can result from something simple to resolve, such as a food intolerance, or they can indicate something as life-threatening as colon cancer. Working with a doctor of Internal Medicine for gastrointestinal treatment is the best way to pinpoint aggravating factors, as well as investigate potentially-serious issues.

Some symptoms of GI problems can be relieved by starting a healthy diet and exercise routine. Eating foods high in fiber, such as fruits and vegetables, and staying well-hydrated can help with constipation, diarrhea, vomiting, and other digestive problems. Learning to manage stress has also been known to help reduce unpleasant symptoms. Your doctor might prescribe medications or antibiotics in order to treat the symptoms. However, if a serious disease is discovered, surgery may be required in order to remove the problem area directly.

There are also a number of natural treatments for GI problems. Probiotics and herbal remedies have been shown to be effective in treating gastrointestinal problems. Natural remedies usually do not have adverse side effects, and they help to balance your health holistically.

Health History & Diagnostic Testing

In order to diagnose the problem, your doctor sometimes needs to see an image of your intestines to look for abnormalities. This can be accomplished by ultrasound, x-ray, MRI, colonoscopy, or endoscopy. After identifying the problem, your doctor will discuss treatment options with you.


Therapies

Depending on the root causes and severity of the GI problems, there are a variety of treatments available. We will help find the one that is right for you. Our doctors will prescribe a treatment plan that includes diet, nutraceuticals and intravenous therapies. Treatments include:

  • Myers’ Cocktail which is an effective, natural IV treatment consisting of magnesium, calcium, B vitamins, and vitamin C.
  • Restorative IVs which allow nutrients to go into trillions of cells in less than a second, compared to oral supplementation which is slower and often cannot address certain issues effectively.
  • Nutraceuticals & Oral Supplements
  • Homeopathics
