Common condition include:
- Acid Reflux (GER & GERD)
- Bowel Control Problems (Fecal Incontinence)
- Celiac Disease
- Crohn’s Disease
- Diverticulosis & Diverticulitis
- Inflammatory Bowel Disease
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
- Lactose Intolerance
Patients are often told there is not a cure for their condition and therefore feel there is no hope. There is hope, however. At Causenta Clinic we have a large number of options to help people treat digestive health conditions and any of the other conditions that often occur with it. So while the disease may not have a published cure, individuals dealing with the disease still have treatment options that can help them enjoy a much-improved quality of life.
Reactions to food can cause inflammation. We have the ability to test vitamins and minerals in serum and intracellular samples of patients and then personalize their treatment in ways never seen before. Certain foods can inflame digestive tract tissues directly or stimulate organisms that inflame the digestive tract. In addition, adding certain nutrients like Vitamins B12, C, D, and E can reduce inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract, are relatively inexpensive, and are safe for patients to take.
Doctors here at Causenta Clinic can test your reactions to foods, multiple ways, and measure all kinds of nutrient markers to optimize your health.
Exposure to environmental chemicals can have different effects on each individual with digestive health issues. Environmental exposures or exposomes may be the missing link to understanding the causes of digestive health issues, like inflammatory bowel disease. The interactions between environment, genetics, gut microbiota, immune system, and other factors like nutrition status are quite complex. At Causenta Clinic, we can test all these areas, including testing for over 100 environmental chemicals and we have developed safe, natural strategies to reduce the damage they cause.
Microbiome / Pathogens / Infections
Reactions to food have been steadily increasing with some evidence indicating this may be due to changes in environmental chemicals the microbiome or both. Microorganisms might stimulate inflammatory signals in the digestive tract, leading to reactions that involve the metabolism of protein antigens and other dietary components by gut microorganisms.
At Causenta Clinic, we can test the microbiome in various samples from the human body and find out if there are organisms that can affect digestion and/or metabolism. Profiling of the gut microbiome has the potential to further personalize medicine for these conditions.
Exercise and Digestive Health Conditions
Exercise appears to have a protective effect on digestive health by stimulating anti-inflammatory effects possibly due to muscle-derived peptides, called myokines. As skeletal muscles contract, they release myokines like IL-15, stimulating direct anti-inflammatory effects, and also stimulating specific effects on visceral fat. At Causenta Clinic, we have a full gym with amazing technologies and onsite experts to help you maximize your results from exercise. In some cases, we have reversed or treated health problems people have had for over 20 years!
The FDA is the governing body that approves medications for the treatment of diseases in the United States. One of the concerns that many people have is that no single treatment is 100% effective and people with the same diagnosis may have developed the disease due to different mechanisms, ie altered microbiome vs exposure to environmental chemicals vs low micronutrient status vs genetics. Given the uniqueness of each patient case, a singular therapeutic approach may not have widespread success for chronic digestive health conditions. More recent evidence suggests that a personalized treatment approach based on individual testing will provide more successful outcomes.
At Causenta Clinic we have discovered more natural and subtle ways to care for digestive health conditions. We target areas within the body to naturally stimulate anti-inflammatory molecules. We have measured all kinds of biomarkers in patients and have discovered ways to use various dietary supplements and nutraceuticals along with Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy, Photobiomodulation, and controlled oxidative stress therapies to optimize patient results.
