Gut Health and Inflammation
In addition to having its own brain, the GUT houses 70% of the immune system. Microbiome gut bacteria greatly influences the digestion of food as well as mood, sleep patterns, hormones and weight management. Functional gut disorders, such as constipation and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), although mostly tolerable to a certain degree, can greatly impact the GI tract and GI motility.
Fortifying the walls of the intestinal tract are critical not only for proper digestion and absorption, but also for over-all health and staving off auto-immune gut diseases and hormone dysregulation. Gut bacteria homeostasis is also critical for digestion and absorption. At the Wellness Medicine Center, we use both allopathic and functional medicine therapies to repair and restore balance and health in the gut.
