Naturopathic digestive health doctors in Phoenix

Digestive doctor supplementFood should help improve digestion and boost your immune system, not deplete it. In fact, your gastrointestinal tract is the largest organ of immunity in the body. However, if you're lacking in proper nutrition or eating the wrong foods, your GI tract cannot work properly, leading to digestive tract disorders. This creates a domino affect, as other organs suffer too from the lack of nutrients you're absorbing from food.

Symptoms of compromised digestive health include:

  • Bloating
  • Heartburn
  • Acid reflux
  • Gas
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation

Millions turn to antacids, laxatives, immune suppresants, and other medications for help. The problem with such medications is they only relieve the symptoms and don't address the underlying digestive tract disorders. If you have not done the work to determine the source of the problem, these medications could be more detrimental than helpful. The key to improve digestion is to take a look at the functions in the digestive tract that are not working and support or fix them.

A holistic digestive doctor will do this by using a combination of conventional testing and imaging, with specialized testing, and functional testing, and reviewing your health history. Through a personalized nutrition program at Southwest Integrative Medicine you can get your natural digestive health back.
