Digestive Disorders and GI Health

gitractHave you been diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome? Do you wonder WHY your bowel is so “irritated” in the first place?

We wonder that also and investigate the underlying cause with each patient. At Colorado Center of Health and Nutrition we believe that IBS is a diagnosis of exclusion and should not be considered the end of the road for the patient. We utilize various functional diagnostic testing, such as complete blood panels, food intolerance testing and complete stool and digestive analysis to determine the real reason for your diarrhea, constipation, gas and or bloating and then we work with those results and the patient to correct the problem to achieve optimal digestive balance.

Healing the GI Tract

There are several reasons why many people experience IBS or its associated signs and symptoms such as chronic diarrhea, constipation, GERD, gas, bloating or nausea. If those reasons have to due leaky gut, gut dysbiosis or an unbalanced ratio of “good” bacteria to “bad” bacteria in the GI tract, then we can work with the patient to make the dietary, medication and supplement correction and then allow them to regain their life and their health

You may be asking why do people get “gut dysbiosis” in the first place? Well there is not an easy answer, and the problem can go all the way back to infancy. Here are some common reasons why people develop a poor functioning digestive tract:

  • Standard American Diet – processed foods, artificial sugars, high fructose corn syrup, white sugars, genetically modified foods, pesticides
  • Environmental factors
  • Antibiotic use
  • Lack of probiotic use
  • Lack of fruits, vegetables, whole foods and fiber
  • Formula versus breastfeeding
  • Early introduction of foods without proper order of foods
