Common Digestive Issues - DiarrheaCommon Digestive Issues

RejuveNature Medical offers natural relief from many digestive issues, including diarrhea, constipation, IBS, and more. Being able to properly digest foods gives us energy and contributes to our overall health. If you suffer from digestive disorders, your body is not able to use the nutrients in the foods you consume to achieve optimal health and other systems in the body may be negatively affected. Being able to properly digest food and then eliminate what your body does not need is critical to the way our bodies work. If your gastrointestinal tract reacts negatively every time you eat certain foods, your body might be trying to tell you that your system is not functioning correctly or that this food is too foreign to your system or too difficult for you to digest. Your naturopathic physician can not only help you to “hear” your digestive system but to determine, through methods such as food sensitivity testing and an elimination diet, which foods or ingredients you will want to avoid.

Many people complain of suffering from a gluten sensitivity or have changed to a gluten-free diet in hopes of improving their health. Gluten isn’t necessarily the root of the problem, but can certainly cause intestinal distress and diarrhea if an allergy to the protein is discovered. There can be many causes to digestive issues, though determining which foods cause us distress is an important factor.

Your immune, hormonal, and nervous systems are all affected by digestive issues. Suffering from indigestion, gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation – and even allergies and migraines – are all symptoms of what may be a larger problem, yet completely manageable with a naturopathic approach of treating the whole person. Digestive disorders, such as irritable bowel syndrome, heartburn, and ulcers, can all be treated by taking a naturopathic approach that treats you individually according to your unique needs.

Approaches to addressing the many types of digestive issues may include dietary modification, testing to identify food allergies, homeopathic remedies, nutritional supplementation, immune support, and the correct probiotic for you. Overall, we emphasize the importance of stopping the toxins by eliminating their intake and naturally healing the damage caused by the toxic reactions.

Diarrhea

Suffering from diarrhea and other common digestive issues can sideline a day of work or fun. Of course, digestive issues, especially diarrhea, have been known to last for much longer than a day. RejuveNature Medical offers natural relief from diarrhea so that you are able to get your life back on track.

If there are many changes in your daily bowel movements, such as in the frequency or consistency of stools, or if you experience pain or cramping, the more important it is to speak with your naturopathic physician. Over the counter and prescription medicines often merely mask the pain and discomfort of digestive issues instead of addressing the cause of symptoms like diarrhea. Treating conditions like diarrhea with medications also often lead to side effects in which additional medication is prescribed in order to combat even more symptoms. Treating diarrhea naturally means taking into account more than just the current digestive issues. Therefore, a holistic approach to health is key to solving the actual problem, not just merely treating the symptoms.

The appropriate balance and type of bacteria in your intestines affects how your body digests what you eat and drink. Making smart, healthy choices – like staying away from sodas and fast food and drinking more water and eating more fruits and vegetables – is a smart start to improving your health. But if you still experience digestive issues even after improving your diet, or are concerned that the changes you are making might not go far enough, contact RejuveNature Medical to see how we can help you improve your health.
