DIGESTIVE HEALTH

Digestive health involves addressing the underlying cause of digestive concerns as well as optimizing digestion to ensure that your body is functioning at its best. Symptoms of poor digestive function can impact almost every other system in the body. In addition to absorbing nutrients and expelling waste products, the gut also has an important role in immune function, hormonal regulation, mood regulation, and chronic inflammation.

 

Our naturopathic doctors will address a variety of digestive concerns including:

  • Irritable bowel syndrome

  • Ulcerative colitis

  • Crohn’s disease

  • Colon cancer

  • Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)

  • Heartburn

  • Gas and bloating

  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)

  • Food intolerance/ sensitivities

  • Hemorrhoids

  • Diverticulitis

 

Our goal at Nova Health is to provide holistic individualized care. A naturopathic approach distinguishes itself from the current paradigm of medicine because we use a multi-faceted approach to address conditions. Digestive health is an important aspect of your overall health, but we will also look at other aspects of your health to best optimize functioning as a whole.
