Chronic Digestive Problems

Chronic digestive problems (gas, bloating, constipation, heartburn, loose stools) are very common in the United States. The mass consumption of processed, refined and genetically modified foods have created undo stress to our entire digestive system from the stomach to the liver and colon leading to chronic inflammation. When treating the digestive tract one must focus on decreasing this inflammation. The first thing would be to determine which foods are causing this destruction. This can be done by a generic allergy-rotation diet eliminating the most common culprits (dairy, corn, wheat, gluten, soy, eggs, garlic, chicken, yeast, & sugar), or through food sensitivity testing. In addition one must provide support through nutritional supplementation to strengthen both the inner and outer layers of the digestive tract. N-acetyl glutamine helps protect the outer layer and a herbal combination therapy known as Robert's Formula helps protect and heal the inner layer. Results can typically be seen in about 4-6 weeks. Always consult your doctor prior to starting such therapy.
