Are your digestive troubles holding you back from living your life to the fullest?

It absolutely changed the course of my life in my 20's and most of my 30's - the prime years.

I have imagined many times, what would my life be like if I never suffered from digestive issues? What if I never missed a career opportunity, social event or travelling? I longed to live a life without a moment's thought to my digestive woes and fears. All I wanted was to eat like everyone else and be normal. Not to stress about how my digestive system was going to react at any given moment and have to cancel my plans yet again. Does anyone really even talk about how many friends and romantic relationships you lose in the process?

 

Because of my digestive issues, I have suffered from severe fatigue, mental fog, hormonal imbalances, fertility challenges, food intolerance and nutritional depletion.

Have digestive troubles robbed you of a life that you deserve? I know it robbed ME.

This is your time for a second chance at it all. Take your life and health back into your own hands and change the course of your future. This is your time to say enough is enough and that you are worth the time, financial investment and are ready to go after what you want out of this life. Are you ready to do whatever it takes? Then let's do this!

Diagnosed with IBS or SIBO?

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is an idiopathic disease. It is not a true diagnosis of a disease - you need to look for the root cause of your digestion problems. The most prevalent diagnosis is SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth).

It is estimated that 10-20% of the world's population has been diagnosed with IBS. Up to 80% of those people actually have SIBO.

Of this population, 2 out of 3 of these individuals with SIBO are female, an estimated 34% of pediatric patients and 15% of elderly individuals.

SIBO is a result of an overgrowth of bacteria in the small intestine that is found and should remain in the large intestine. For more details please click here.

General symptoms of SIBO are:

  • Bloating/Gas/Abdominal Pain

  • Diarrhea an/or Constipation

  • Heartburn

  • Fatigue

  • Brain fog, memory loss, cognitive decline

  • Depression and Anxiety, Learning Disabilities &                                                                            cognitive dysfunction

  • Food intolerance

  • Rosacea, eczema, acne and other skin conditions

  • Weight loss/gain

  • Vitamin and mineral deficiencies (A, B12, D, E and Iron)

 

 

Causes & Risk Factors:

  • Food poisoning - causing motility disturbance (#1 cause for SIBO)

  • Reduction in migrating motor complexes due to medical conditions, insult or adhesion (think surgery and endometriosis)

  • Impaired digestion (due to inadequate HCL, pancreatic enzymes and bile)

  • Overuse of NSAIDs, antibiotics, antidepressants and narcotics

  • Moderate to heavy alcohol consumption

  • Traumatic brain injury

  • Weak ileocecal valve

  • Autoimmune disease, systemic inflammation

  • Organ system dysfunction such as liver cirrhosis, pancreatitis or renal failure

  • Diabetes (Type 1 and Type 2)

  • H.Pylori Infection

  • Cancer of the esophagus or stomach

  • Cancer treatments

  • Use of birth control pills

  • Gilbert's Syndrome and Celiac Disease

  • Conditions including Hashimoto, Ehlers Danlos, Parkinson's Disease, Fibromyalgia, Scleroderma, Epstein Barr Virus, Lyme Disease, and other neurological diseases that can affect peristalsis of the small intestine

Why your Gut Microbiome is so Important

Your gut microbiome is full of trillions of bacteria - about 5lbs worth - which means you are more bacteria than Human! A healthy microbiome is the key to your overall health. The gut microbiome controls your immune system and relies on its ability to do its job effectively to protect you against viruses, pathogens, allergens and infections.

Your microbiome is also responsible for brain health by way of its effect on the central nervous system which is what controls your brain function. Many cognitive and mood disorders can be linked back to a poor condition of the gut microbiome. People with a microbiome imbalance often suffer from depression, anxiety, bipolar disease and other mood and cognitive disorders.

So many conditions are affected by the microbiome. Some of the following conditions that are most common would warrant microbiome testing such as Autoimmune Disorders, IBS/SIBO/IBD, Digestive complaints (diarrhea, constipation, bloating, stomach pain, GERD), brain fog, skin issues such as acne and psoriasis. Mood disorders such as depression and anxiety, ADHD and Autism. Diabetes and weight loss issues.

Many - if not all -  of our modern diseases, digestive disorders, metabolic disorders and autoimmune disorders are directly linked to the microbiome. If you are suffering from chronic illness, it will be invaluable for you to invest in a microbiome profile analysis such as that offered by Diagnostic Solutions Lab called the GI MAP and get to the root cause of your condition.  Both of our Digestive Freedom packages include a GI Map.  Ready to do this?
