I am in the third week of the Repair and Clear program and have been working with Dr. Caroline for two months now as a functional medicine patient....
Talking about bodily functions is either taboo for some people, or often the center of conversation for others.
The topic digestive health is a source of intrigue and frustration for individuals dealing with issues such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) where symptoms include constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating, discomfort, and intolerances to certain foods and chemicals.
Clearly problems with the GI tract are inconvenient as they are painful. As a result, quality of life may be severely compromised.
The process of functional medicine detective work allows Dr. Caroline to look beyond the surface.
With specific lab testing, we increase the likelihood of determining whether the condition is related to a leaky gut, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, parasites, food allergies, stress, toxins, or yeast overgrowth, for example.
We can then create a custom plan of action to support the body’s natural healing process with nutrition, supplementation, chiropractic, stress management techniques, and neurofeedback. When we honor both mind and body, it is more likely homeostasis can be regained.
