The brain-gut connection has been a highly misunderstood and controversial topic in medicine for decades. If you’ve suffered from “leaky gut” or have the symptoms of a brain-gut dysfunction then I don’t have to tell you how true this is. You’ve probably been laughed at, shunned, belittled and maybe even “fired” from your doctor because you keep bringing this topic up. It’s one of those conditions where there is no blood test, no MRI or any set of tests that can prove that, yes, you’ve got leaky gut.
The symptoms can vary from person to person but typically are all or a combination of the following: chronic fatigue, brain fog, chronic pain (that you can’t simply point to or describe), bloating, acid reflux, strong cravings for sugar, memory issues, weight gain, difficulty losing weight no matter what you do, constipation, diarrhea, and poor sleep. Any of this sound familiar?
You’ve got all this going on, you try to explain it to the doctors and they look at you and say “you don’t look that sick” or “your blood tests came back normal” and BAM, you are feeling defeated, frustrated and depressed (but there’s a pill for that right?). And no wonder, it is frustrating not be be understood. It is depressing that no one believes you or even if they do there’s nothing they can do for you.
That’s where we come in. We know this is real and we know it’s taking away “the old you” a little at a time. Most importantly we know where to look to find the root, we have testing that can show us (and you) what the problem is and we have a plan, a solution to get you out of this mess. We spend the time it takes to understand, analyze, and interpret these tests then, we sit down with you and create a step by step PLAN to take you from where you are to where you want to go. We’ll discuss expectations and outcomes, steps you can take a home, and walk side by side with you till we reach the goal. Just give us a call and we’ll get started.
