Digestive Disorders

Healing Digestive Disorders

Most patients are suffering from some degree of digestive disorder. Symptoms of digestive disorders include:

  • Constipation
  • Loose stools
  • Gas
  • Bloating
  • Heartburn
  • GERD
  • General abdominal pain
  • Blood in the stool
  • Difficulty swallowing

At Water's Edge, we consider your gut function the foundation of your health. All the body's organ systems, including hormone, immune, and neurological, are dependent on a properly functioning digestive system with good flora balance, low inflammation, and optimal absorption and elimination. 

There are many reasons you may be experiencing digestive symptoms. Finding the exact cause of your symptoms is essential for treatment. Some causes of digestive symptoms include:

  • Food allergies
  • Food sensitivities
  • Low acid production
  • Low enzyme production
  • SIBO – Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth
  • Yeast overgrowth
  • Parasite infection
  • Poor immune function
  • Leaky Gut Syndrome
  • Celiac disease
  • Chemical sensitivities
  • Structural issues (gallstones, strictures, hernia, etc.)

Treatment

We use advanced gastrointestinal testing to determine the cause(s) of each individual’s symptoms. Then we focus on dietary changes, digestive tract healing, and restoration to return to normal function in the digestive tract.  When we heal the gut, we find that many symptoms resolve. This allows us to move forward with fewer obstacles and less medication needed to reach your health goals.
