Help for Digestive Issues

These days it is not unusual for people to suffer from digestive issues. Many adults and children are suffering from constipation, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), heartburn, flatulence and more. The antacid and laxative industries are doing very well (more than $10 billion/year in global sales) yet people are not getting resolution because the root cause of their issues are not being resolved.

In fact, 70 million people in the United States deal with digestive issues every day. Many reach for over the counter medications for relief while others head to the ER but these approaches are not long term solutions. In fact, many over the counter medications, while relieving symptoms, are actually exacerbating the underlying cause of the digestive issue.

Digestive issues can be embarrassing, uncomfortable and even debilitating. Fortunately, digestive distress may be resolved with proper diet, nutrition and additional detoxification measures.

Digestive distress is the number one issue that clients come into South Bay Wellness to see Dr. Danielle Zanzarov, PhD. Many of her clients have been struggling with digestive issues for years. Many have watched their digestive issues get worse before coming in for assistance and are finally able to feel better.

What Causes Digestive Issues?

There are many different reasons people suffer from digestive issues. For some, digestive imbalance is the result of poor dietary choices. For others, chronic inflammation is the result of food sensitivities that impact their digestive system. Leaky gut, for example, is a new buzzword that is often used to identify a digestive system that is inflamed and causes increased intestinal permeability.

Digestive issues may also begin at birth. This can occur when someone is born by via C-section or perhaps given antibiotic as an infant. Others may have missed out on vital gut healing nutrients if they were not breastfed. For others, usage of medications including NSAIDs and antibiotics, has disrupted the gut microbiome and so the digestive system does not work as it should. Overall there are many different reasons why people experience poor digestive health.

At South Bay Wellness, Dr. Zanzarov helps clients get to the root cause of their issues.

Why Is It Important to Heal Our Digestive System?

We all know the cliché: “you are what you eat,” but the truth is … you are what you digest. Digestion is key to our health. Our cells need the nutrients that we bring into our bodies in order to be able to function and survive. Not only can digestive issues be very uncomfortable and even embarrassing at times, but they have a tremendous impact on our health. Research shows that the status of our digestive system is a good indicator of our overall health and well-being. Those who suffer from digestive issues are also more likely to suffer from autoimmune illnesses, chronic illnesses, and even mental health issues like anxiety and depression.

Our digestive system is a vital part of our overall health and wellness both physically and emotionally. We also know got the gut microbiome, which influences our digestive health, is critical as well. For many people that gut microbiome has been disrupted and unbalanced resulting in gastrointestinal symptoms. Restoring proper balance and supporting a healthy gut microbiome is important to digestive health.
