DIGESTIVE WELLNESS

 

Approximately 20 million Canadians are affected by digestive disorders each year. Unfortunately, the frustrating and often debilitating symptoms of digestive issues can have a considerable impact on a person’s quality of life. Whether symptoms are mild or severe, naturopathic medicine has much to offer in the way of assessment and treatment for patients with digestive issues.

Dr. Cristina will evaluate your case individually to determine the best course of evaluation and treatment. Perhaps further testing will be considered, such as “food sensitivity testing” or a “comprehensive digestive stool analysis”. She may also want to look at any testing you may have already had with another medical practitioner. Dr. Cristina will also determine if any other health issues you are presenting with may be part of the digestive picture. We can’t have good health without good digestion, and often times things like low mood, fatigue, frequent infections, skin issues and joint pain can be caused by an unhealthy digestive tract. Also, many other health issues such as hormonal health and lifestyle stress can negatively impact the digestive tract, so evaluating and treating those areas become just as important for overall digestive health.
