Digestive Health

Your digestive system is at the core of your health. When it operates well, you feel great. But when it's off, your whole body knows it. At CentreSpringMD, we understand the complexity of digestive health and offer an approach that is as unique as you are.

Digestive troubles have reached epidemic levels in the Western world. From bloating, gas, and constipation, to more serious conditions like Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, digestive issues can significantly impact your quality of life.

Our integrative approach combines traditional medicine with alternative therapies to address the root cause of your symptoms.

Signs of Poor Digestive Health

The signs and symptoms of digestive issues can be broad, and affect nearly every part of the body. 

  • Chronic Bloating and Gas: Uncomfortable and often embarrassing symptoms that can indicate issues with digestion.
  • Irregular Bowel Movements: Consistency, frequency, and ease of bowel movements can signify whether your digestive tract is functioning optimally.
  • Abdominal Pain: Recurring pain can be the result of issues ranging from food intolerances to more severe conditions.
  • Heartburn and Acid Reflux: While common, these can point to dietary triggers or other health concerns.

If you're struggling with digestive symptoms, we can help.

What Causes Digestive Disorders

The underlying causes of digestive disorders are numerous, and unfortunately, several features of the modern lifestyle directly contribute to an unhealthy gut:

  • Antibiotics and other medications like birth control and NSAIDs
  • Poor Diet: High in processed foods and low in fiber can disrupt your digestive health.
  • Individual food sensitivities that contribute to leaky gut
  • Underlying infections
  • Chronic Stress: It impacts gut health significantly, as the brain and digestive system are closely connected.
  • Chronic Diseases: Conditions like diabetes or autoimmune disorders can affect digestion

Common Digestive Disorders

From IBS and GERD to Crohn's disease and gastritis, our clinic deals with a wide range of digestion disorders. Understanding the spectrum of issues helps us tailor our approach for each individual. 

Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD): An umbrella term for chronic inflammation of the digestive tract, including Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD): Occurs when stomach acid frequently flows back into the esophagus, causing heartburn.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS): A disorder that affects the large intestine and causes symptoms like abdominal pain, bloating, and changes in bowel movements.

Gastritis: Inflammation of the stomach lining, often caused by an infection or overuse of certain medications.

Functional Medicine Lab Tests

We use comprehensive lab tests to uncover the root cause of your digestive issues, such as:

Stool Testing: To look at the gut microbiome and digestive function.

Food Sensitivity Tests: To identify any food intolerances or allergies.

SIBO Breath Tests: To detect overgrowth of bacteria in the small intestine.
