Digestive Health

Irritable bowel syndrome is one of the most common gut dysfunctions that can greatly impact one’s quality of life. To effectively manage IBS, it’s important to take a holistic approach and consider the various underlying factors that may contribute to gut dysfunction. Although there are multiple treatment options available, modifying your diet is a great start to see initial benefits that can dampen symptoms which more investigative works takes place.

Unfortunately, conventional medicine often takes a narrow view of digestive issues and tends to focus solely on symptom management by prescribing medication as a temporary solution and prescribes too many antibiotics that are simply not needed. It’s crucial to recognize the extensive influence that the gut can have on overall health, as gut issues can manifest as joint pain, skin issues and mental health disorders. Therefore, a more comprehensive approach to gut health is necessary for optimal well-being.
