Irritable Bowel Syndrome Palatine, IL

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

One of the most common reasons for emergency room visits in the United States is gastrointestinal distress. So many people are suffering with acute or chronic bloating, pain, constipation, diarrhea or other symptoms that it has become a pandemic. We have seen both kids and adults with some kind of gastrointestinal complaint and we find that in order to treat this problem naturally it is important to understand where this problem came from in the first place.

For the intestines and stomach to work properly one has to have a balance in the microflora and when that balance is disrupted by either excessive antibiotic use or improper diet that this feeds the wrong kind of bacteria and people develop a condition called leaky gut syndrome or intestinal dysbiosis. This condition allows for large molecules to pass through the blood-gut barrier that would normally not be allowed. This can cause all kinds of reactions from discomfort to autoimmune problems. Proper acidity is also important when digesting foods and a large percentage of the population is actually low on stomach acid and not high so taking an antacid is actually detrimental to their health. Our approach at Lotus Wellness Center is threefold.

We focus first on detoxifying the body for two weeks and then re-introducing proper bacteria and nutrients that will restore and rebuild that gut mucosa.

It is also important to remember that the intestines do not work well during extreme stress for example in people who are in a constant state of agitation or anxiety. In order for these people to fully recover and restore the full function of their intestines they must learn to cope with stress and utilize stress reduction techniques. We are able to help them learn these techniques and apply them to their daily life.

And lastly, it is important to know that all of our bodily systems are functioning based on healthy neurological connections. Through injuries, inactivity, stress or poor ergonomics these neurological connections can weaken, and restoring them through spinal manipulation can be very effective at restoring the proper function of bodily organs.

Will utilize these methods in order to help patients who have been suffering for many years with gastrointestinal distress of different kinds and help them heal so they do not have to rely on chronic use of medications such as corticosteroids, antacids, and other pharmaceuticals.
