The Almighty Gut
The gut is the only organ system that can carry out functions without the need of the brain’s impulses. In fact, it has the power to act as its own brain earning the title as our “second brain.”
Did you know that our gut is also home to:
-Its own nervous system called the enteric nervous system.
-95% of the body’s happy hormone, serotonin.
-70% of all the immune cells within the body.
- 400 times more melatonin than the brain
The decline in gut health in the United States is costing people their lives due its important roles as a first line of defense, second brain, and emotional center within our bodies. Afterall, Hippocrates was right when he said, “All disease begins in the gut.”
Unfortunately, the majority of Americans are suffering with some sort of gut-related issue and are not being treated appropriately. The current medical model has previously failed to recognize the impact gut health has on the entire body’s wellbeing.
This epidemic can be reversed, however, with functional medicine principles, comprehensive diagnostic testing, and individualized care.
Save Your Life
Do you suffer from:
-Digestive distress (bloating, excess gas, constipation, diarrhea, heartburn, IBS)
-Skin issues (acne, eczema, rashes, dry or itchy skin)
-Respiratory problems (heavy mucus production, regular colds)
-Mood instability (depression, anxiety, irritability, increased anger)
All of these things (and more) can be traced back to gut health. Luckily, functional medicine has proven methods to recognize the imbalances in your body, understand how to address them, and best support your gut healing journey.
What is Functional Medicine?
Functional medicine serves as a combination of conventional medicine and complementary healthcare. It is guided by the following principles:
-Each patient is an individual with varying needs based on their genetics, environment, and unique health history.
-A patient-centered, versus disease-centered, approach.
-Holistic treatment focused on the root cause of each issue rather than simply treating the symptoms of the disease.
-Health identified as a dynamic balance of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well being, rather than just the absence of disease.
-The complex mix of interactions of nutrition, physical activity, organ integrity, and stress management.
-Comprehensive laboratory testing and diagnostic measures to ensure efficient and optimal care.
-An integrative, research-based method of healthcare combining both Western and Eastern medical practices.
-Prevention and treatment of complex, chronic conditions that need specialized care.
