Digestive Disorders  and IBS

 

 

You may be suffering from irritable bowel syndrome

Digestion problems like bloating, pain after eating, gas, burping, constipation, and diarrhea are one of the main categories of symptoms suffered by almost all of us.  These symptoms are often associated with ongoing inflammation affecting the intestine.  The inflammation often leads to a disorder of gut permeability (“leaky gut”) which allows large protein molecules and  bacteria to pass from our gut into our systemic circulation and to distant body parts where cascading inflammation can contribute to a variety of systemic inflammatory conditions including

  • Thyroiditis
  • Inflammatory arthritis
  • Degenerative nervous system diseases
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Autoimmune disease

 

Disordered digestion often arises from one of three areas

  • Effects of food toxins
  • Allergies and intolerances to foods
  • Bad effects of intestinal microbes

 

Digestive Disorders can lead to other disorders

In addition to making us miserable, digestive disorders often trigger inflammation in our intestinal immune system which can lead to a host of other disorders including

  • Headaches
  • Arthritis
  • Autoimmune Syndromes
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Sleep disorder
  • Allergies
  • Immune deficiency

 

Understanding of the underlying causes and correction of the associated abnormalities with a multifaceted approach is necessary to heal the intestinal disorder and reduce the associated systemic inflammation. The clinicians at Texas Integrative Medicine work with you to develop a personalized plan to help you solve your digestive disorder.
