Metabolic Condition (n)
anything that affects your blood chemistry or blood glucose, like Gout or Diabetes
a disorder of your immune system where your system cannot tell the difference between your own body and a bacteria, virus or toxin, and therefore attacks and destroys your own tissue
Gastrointestinal (GI) Disorders (n)
conditions of your gut that can range from constipation/ diarrhea to ulcers and leaky gut
Anyone suffering with a metabolic disorder, or an autoimmune disorder - like Hashimoto’s Thyroid, or Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) - needs to be looking at gastrointestinal function. This is because your GI tract is where 80% of your immune system resides, and largely determines how your immune system responds.
The GI tract is where your outside world interacts with your inside world, and the root of many seemingly unrelated health issues can be found there. Parasites, Bacterial and Viral Infections, Leaky Gut, SIBO, Candida, and just plain old Dysbiosis are just a few of the problems that can lead to a host of health issues that appear to be disconnected but are actually altogether related, if seen through the lens of how the body truly functions. There are numerous ways to test what is going on in your gut, and we will determine the appropriate testing after your consultation.
