Functional Neurology & Metabolic Treatments – The Answer to Your Health Problems!
Why do you still have horrible digestive symptoms when your lab tests are normal and your doctors say there is nothing wrong and it’s “all in your head!”? Discover a revolutionary breakthrough in understanding and treatment of Irritable Bowel Syndrome and other Chronic Digestive Disorders.
We have good news to share with you. Many people in our community have suffered like you and found relief. You can have more energy, lose weight, end your bowel discomfort and regain your life by unlocking the true underlying causes of your Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). The answer lies in the getting the right tests, interpreting them functionally and following a very specific plan based on those results.
Can you picture yourself in any of these scenarios???
You are in a crowded restaurant trying to enjoy time with family or friends. Unfortunately, there is a wait to be seated. While everyone is enjoying themselves you have a sudden panic come over you as you realize there is line outside the restroom, as you say a silent prayer “Please -no attacks!” over and over again.
It is now just habit that the first thing you look for anywhere is a rest room and you don’t even realize it.
“Why are you so quiet?” a friend asks. “No reason”, you reply – while thinking to yourself how bad you hate living like this.
Here, someone says, try one of these- they are delicious! You take a bite and you realize OH NO! I am going to regret this as your stomach begins to cramp and the feeling of a diarrhea attack immediately hits you.
Digestive trouble can be one of the most embarrassing and uncomfortable diseases a person can have. As you may know your life can be a wreck by not being able to go out in public, due to an attack. Never enjoying life to the fullest or able to not go places where a bathroom is a few steps away or eating something and never knowing when the next “attack” will happen is NOT how you should have to live.
We are here to tell you there is hope! We love helping people with these conditions because once you figure out the “real problems and causes”, real solutions can be applied. You can enjoy life again without worry. You no longer have to buy those embarrassing “adult diapers”. If you or a loved one would like more information about our recovery program, keep reading. If you suffer from:
- Recurrent abdominal pain or discomfort
- Abnormal stool frequency (greater than 3 bowel movements/day or less than 3 bowel movements/week
- Abnormal stool form (lumpy/hard or loose/watery stool)
- Abnormal stool passage (straining, urgency, or feeling of incomplete bowel movement)
- Bloating or feeling of abdominal distension
- Feelings of urgency (the need to find a restroom fast)
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS or spastic colon) is a diagnosis of exclusion. It is a functional bowel disorder characterized by chronic abdominal pain, discomfort, bloating, and alteration of bowel habits in the absence of any detectable organic cause. In some cases, the symptoms are relieved by bowel movements. Diarrhea or constipation may predominate, or they may alternate IBS may begin after an infection, a stressful life event, or onset of maturity without any other medical indicators.
Although medical experts say there is no cure for IBS, we totally disagree-and so do our patients. There are treatments that attempt to relieve symptoms, including dietary adjustments, supplementation and medication. If you want to get rid of it you need to find out why you have it in the first place. The answer will surprise some and most already know but refuse to believe it. We find it and tell you. Most patients can start feeling relief in 2-6 weeks and following advice within 3 months can be clear of symptoms. There are a few “deal breakers” that may need to be addressed first, that prevent you from getting better. We look for those first to make an accurate diagnosis.
Several conditions may present as IBS including celiac disease (gluten intolerance), fructose malabsorption, mild infections, parasitic infections like giardiasis, several inflammatory bowel diseases, functional chronic constipation, and chronic functional abdominal pain. In IBS, routine clinical tests yield no abnormalities, though the bowels may be more sensitive to certain stimuli. The most common theory is that IBS is a disorder of the interaction between the brain and the gastrointestinal tract, and there may also be abnormalities in the gut flora or the immune system. This is why we perform a very thorough neurologic evaluation.
“Experts” (notice that’s in quotes) say that Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) does not lead to more serious conditions in most patients. But it is a source of chronic pain, fatigue, and other symptoms, and it increases a patient’s medical costs, and contributes to work absenteeism. Again as we disagree, digestive issues are the cause of most chronic disease out there like auto immune conditions, thyroid diseases, arthritis, anemia, gastro-esophageal reflux (GERD), symptoms relating to the genitourinary system, psychiatric symptoms such as depression and anxiety, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, headache and backache and many more including something you may have not of heard of COLON CANCER!!! Did you know your gut is also called the 2nd brain? Believe it or not many patients with digestive problems do not even know they have a problem with their digestion because they have no bowel issues. Many times gut issues show up as multiple sclerosis, anxiety problems, inflammatory arthritis, depression, chronic neck or back pain, hormone problems and many others. In kids it can manifest as ADD/ADHD, asthma, allergies (adults too) and autistic disorders.
