The Core of Your Wellbeing is a Healthy and Happy Gut!
Are you ready to get to the bottom of your gut complaints?
- Acid Reflux
- Stomach Pain
- Food Allergies
Your digestive system is the foundation of your health and arguably the most dynamic system of the whole body. It has been said that all health and disease begins with digestion. When something goes wrong during the process of digestion, it affects not just your gut, but can have a negative impact on every other system of your body.
Did you know that at least 70% of your immune system resides in the immediate vicinity of your GI tract? Did you know that at least 70% of the neurotransmitters that influence your mood, attention, memory, and focus are produced in your gut?
Even if you eat right and avoid certain foods, inadequate digestive enzymes or incomplete absorption and poor elimination can pollute your body with toxins, setting off your immune system, creating food allergies or sensitivities, and rob your body of essential nutrients necessary for balanced moods, growth and repair of essential tissues, and optimal immune health.
Common prescription and “over the counter” medications taken for digestive issues can make matters much worse rather than provide the relief they promise. Conditions such as allergies, fatigue, weight gain or loss, joint pain, and mental fogginess that are seemingly unrelated to digestion are often dramatically improved when you optimize gut health.
As a naturopathic doctor and functional medicine specialist, Dr. Ford has received extensive training in the complexities and interrelationship of gut health and overall vitality and wellness. Issues such as constipation, chronic diarrhea, IBS, SIBO, food allergies or sensitivities, heartburn and indigestion, gas and bloating, and gallbladder problems have responded well to Dr. Ford’s recommendations. Proper testing to determine any underlying imbalances, simple diet and lifestyle interventions, and targeted supplementation will help bring balance back to your foundation of health. It is time to get the core of your wellbeing back for good!
