We aim to give you symptom free digestion

Naturopathic medicine embraces a comprehensive perspective on digestive health by diligently identifying the underlying factors contributing to digestive concerns. As naturopathy is a specific system of healthcare that falls under the umbrella of holistic health. Dr. Kaylee naturopathic doctors (NDs) often take a holistic approach by considering the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of a person’s health.  

Makecarehealth is a center for natural medicine. It focuses on fostering the body’s innate healing abilities through natural methods. Here are some effective strategies that can help busy executives and professionals alleviate bloating, gas, and IBS symptoms:

What is SIBO or Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth?

In specific instances of SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth), the production of methane gas serves to further impede the movement of the gastrointestinal tract. However, in SIBO, excessive amounts of bacteria colonize the small intestine, leading to a range of digestive symptoms.

The overgrowth of bacteria interferes with the proper digestion and absorption of food, causing nutrient deficiencies and further digestive disturbances. Addressing SIBO involves a combination of treatments, including antibiotics, dietary changes, and managing underlying causes, to restore the balance of bacteria in the small intestine and promote optimal digestive health.

GERD, nausea, liver and gallbladder concerns

The management of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is treated by a naturopathic doctor that combines lifestyle modifications and medications. GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease) is a condition characterized by the reflux of stomach acid into the esophagus, causing symptoms such as heartburn and regurgitation. 

Can liver problems cause bitter taste in mouth? The presence of a bitter taste in the mouth can serve as a potential indication of liver or fatty liver problems. Liver and gallbladder concerns are connected to digestion health as these organs play essential roles in the digestive process. Conditions like fatty liver disease or gallstones can disrupt the normal functioning of the liver and gallbladder.

While GERD primarily affects the esophagus, it can have secondary effects on digestion and other organs. Additionally, if GERD is severe and longstanding, it can contribute to complications such as Barrett’s esophagus, which may increase the risk of esophageal cancer. 

Treatment for Constipation and/or Diarrhea

Diarrhea and constipation, two contrasting symptoms of the digestive system, can disrupt our daily lives. Additionally, underlying conditions like inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) can further complicate the situation, causing fluctuations between these two extremes. When faced with persistent or recurrent episodes of diarrhea or constipation, seeking the guidance of a healthcare naturopathic professional becomes crucial.

By consulting an expert, you can identify the underlying cause and receive personalized treatment, taking significant steps towards restoring digestive harmony and reclaiming your well-being. Don’t let these symptoms hold you back any longer – embark on a journey toward optimal digestive health today.

IBD, Crohn’s, Colitis and Colon Health

Digestive symptoms can be both overwhelming and frustrating, as they can interrupt your ability to maintain activities of daily living. There are naturopathic solutions available for your digestive disorders and naturopathic doctors at Make Care Health, can help.

Crohn’s disease and Colitis are often the main dignoses of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which is different from IBS. With IBD, the large intestine is largely affected and inflamed, through autoimmune disorder, where the immune system is attacking mucosal tissue of the colon or the bacteria living in the colon.

 Symptoms can be intermittent, with flare-ups only every couple of months or years, and so can make it difficult to identify as a recurring chronic disease. Typical symptoms include:

NAFLD, Fatty Liver and Liver Health

Fatty liver, also known as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease or NAFLD, is a condition characterized by the accumulation of fat in liver cells. This leads to a decrease in the number of functioning liver cells, resulting in symptoms associated with a poorly functioning liver. 

People with NAFLD may experience various symptoms including poor digestion, constipation, difficulty in absorbing fats, and problems with the gallbladder such as gallstones or infections. Additionally, weight gain and a persistent feeling of heaviness or tiredness are commonly observed. 

It is important to address NAFLD promptly to ensure proper liver function, as the liver plays a crucial role in hormone production, bile acid synthesis for digestion, and detoxification processes in the body.

Mold and Mycotoxins

Mold is a type of fungus that can grow indoors and outdoors in moist environments, but when humans inhale or ingest it, it can cause a mold infection or mycotoxicity in the body, which can be very difficult to diagnose and treat.

Mycotoxicity is the term used to describe the adverse effects of exposure to
mycotoxins, which are toxic substances produced by certain species of mold.

Mold infection occurs when mold spores enter the body and start growing. This can happen through inhalation of spores or through direct contact with mold-contaminated surfaces. People with weakened immune systems, or undergoing a lot of stress, therefore, dampening their immune response, are at higher risk of developing mold infections. 

Mold and mycotoxins can affect the body in several ways. When mold spores are inhaled, they can irritate the respiratory system, causing coughing, wheezing, and other symptoms of respiratory distress. Exposure to mycotoxins can also have systemic effects, affecting multiple organ systems throughout the body. Mycotoxins can damage DNA, disrupt the immune system, and interfere with cellular metabolism. 

A naturopathic approach to treatment for mold and mycotoxicity, will involve testing for mold, and addressing the foundations of digestive health, in order to use natural anti-fungals and supports that help eradicate the mold, in a gentle way, that will be long lasting. Dr. Kaylee Alton, ND, has advanced training in treating mold and mycotoxicity, through her work with Dr. Jill Crista, ND, and Neil McKinney.
