Gastrointestinal Health

NatureMed can help you overcome acute and chronic GI conditions ranging from dysbiosis, heartburn, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), eosinophilic esophagitis, small intestinal bacteria overgrowth (SIBO), gastro-paresis, chronic diarrhea and constipation, and inflammatory bowel disease, such as Crohn’s Disease and ulcerative colitis.

Naturopathic medicine has a strong focus on the GI system. When something goes wrong during the process of digestion, it often affects not just your gut, but also your immune, hormonal and nervous systems. Even if you eat an ideal diet, you may have impaired nutrient absorption and energy production. Digestive issues can also lead to the development of chronic inflammation and allergies.

Naturopathic approach involves testing and treatment for food allergies and sensitivities, imbalances in the colon microbiome, intestinal permeability, SIBO, among others, and treatment using diet, herbs and nutrients specifically focused on restoring good GI health.

Natural Treatments for Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) has many causes and should not just simply be treated symptomatically. Irritable bowel syndrome commonly causes cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, diarrhea and constipation.

IBS, is a common condition that affects between 25 and 55 million Americans, the majority of whom are women. The condition most often occurs in people in their late teens to early 40s.

Naturopathic doctors believe that the baseline of health can be influenced by the health of the digestive tract. Our ND’s are very experienced at treating irritable bowel syndrome.  Their treatment focuses on addressing all factors that cause this syndrome including but not limited to the internal microbiome and food sensitivities.
