Gastrointestinal Detox

Our gastrointestinal system (GI) is central to our health and when not functioning properly, can be the doorway to many diseases and poor health.  It should be no surprise that 70% of our immune system lies in our gastrointestinal tract.

Gastrointestinal symptoms such as reflux, bloating, intestinal gas, stomach pain after meals are signals by our bodies that something is functionally wrong in our gastrointestinal tract.  These complaints often result from lifestyle choices, unaddressed gastrointestinal inflammation and exposure to a variety of toxins.  These complaints are all usually treated with one size fits all drug therapy with antacids such as tums, pepcid or prilosec. Unfortunately this may only very temporarily mask the symptoms and will worsen the problem in the long run due to stopping natural acid production by our body’s created and necessary to digest and thereby absorb nutrition.  These problems are usually just the tip of the iceberg.  It is important to investigate the root cause of gastrointestinal dysfunction and treat it with a customized thorough program that will restore GI health from the roots by restoring normal GI function.  Gastrointestinal health is a pillar of health and malfunction in the GI system is a gateway to many chronic and debilitating diseases.

How do we do it?

At Advance Health Dr. Rashel uses a thorough program of gastrointestinal health restoration that begins with investigation of the root cause of the malfunction.  The problem is then treated, usually using a three part program, first by eliminating toxins, pathogenic organisms, and allergens, then replacing GI microflora and immune function, and finally repairing the integrity of the gut mucosa, meaning the stomach lining and intestinal wall.  Following this program may not be as easy as ‘popping a pill’ but the rewards will be far greater and will include proper digestion and absorption of nutrients and better overall health because of it.

There is no quick fix for gastrointestinal problems, to ignore the problem or mask the symptoms with temporary possible short-term quick fixes is only setting up and strengthening future larger health problems that will arise.  We are here to help treat the cause and restore natural balance and strength to your gastrointestinal system for a longer healthier life.
