Gastro intestinal health
The gut is by far one of the most important organs of the body. We all know that the gut is responsible for absorbing nutrients and elimination of waste.
But did you also know
- That 80% of your immune system comes from your digestive tract?
- That 70% of your serotonin (the happy hormone) comes from the digestive tract?
- That the digestive system is your organ that interacts with your environment directly from the food you consume?
- Your gut is now referred to as your second brain?
Some conditions relating directly to the gut
- Not being able to lose weight
- Chronic sinus
- Frequent colds and flu’s
- Immune disorders
At our practice we do specialized tests to determine the health of the gastrointestinal tract:
- Determine if there are any parasites, yeast or fungus
- The digestive system enzymes function
- Any inflammation in the digestive system
- Any food sensitivities
- The type of bacteria – good and bad
- The absorption of food
We follow the principle of the 4-R program to restore the digestive tract.
