In conventional medicine, doctors frequently rush to procedures like endoscopies or colonoscopies without getting to the underlying cause of symptoms like abdominal bloating.
These procedures don’t give you information about what is going on at the cellular level…at the functional level of your GI tract.
Just taking an antacid or a gas blocker isn’t really going to solve the underlying problem.
As one doctor in the 1800’s said, “All disease starts in the gut.” That really impressed me and is one of the reasons I decided to study and practice functional medicine.
The gut is the gateway to the entire biological systems in your body and can lead to conditions like leaky gut, food allergies and sensitivities, autoimmune diseases and brain fog.
My specialty is healing the gut through integrative and functional medicine – that’s right, I’m on a mission to get people healthy without harmful, toxic and expensive prescription drugs.
