GASTROINTESTINAL DISORDERS

GASTROINTESTINAL DISORDERS

The digestive system made up of the GI tract, liver, pancreas, and gallbladder which together help the body to digest and absorb food. Some digestive diseases and conditions are acute, lasting only a short time, while others are chronic, or long-lasting.

 Some common conditions/issues are:

  •  Acid Reflux
  • Celiac Disease
  • Constipation/Bloating
  • Hemorrhoids, Diverticulosis & Diverticulitis
  • Gallstones
  • Gastritis & Ulcers
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Lactose Intolerance
  • Liver Disease
  • Pancreatitis
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD): Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis
  • Cancer
  • Bariatric surgery
  • Food allergies

Don’t fall prey to DETOX diets. Your gut has a self-cleaning and healing mechanism provided you give it the right support through good nutrition and lifestyle modifications. Most of the blood tests that are done to detect allergies/intolerances are not very specific and sensitive. Consult an allergy specialist if you suspect a food allergy who can then recommend the right diagnostic tests and management after diagnosis.

Exercise keeps your circulation going and that keeps your gut healthy.  In more severe cases like IBD/liver and pancreatic diseases exercise helps in weight management and improves overall quality of life. A program will be structured by our team of experts after an evaluation.

Psychology

Mental Health

Your gut is a second brain. We know that gut issues can create anxiety and stress. We also know that anxiety and stress can make gut problems worse. There is a lesser known part of our body’s nervous system located in our gut. It’s called the enteric nervous system. This network of nerves extends along the entire digestive tract down to the anus. Some medical experts call it our second brain. This second brain in our gut, in communication with the brain in our head, plays a key role in certain diseases in our bodies and in our overall mental health. Our team of clinical psychologists will offer techniques that can help ease GI distress or at least help one cope with their symptoms.
