Chances are you’ve experienced the discomfort of digestive distress. It happens to everyone from time to time. While some digestive health conditions pass relatively quickly, others are long-lasting and affect quality of life. Many people suffer from chronic digestive health conditions such as:
- 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
Have you been told there is no cure for your chronic gi condition? While there may not be a published cure, at Causenta we have many treatment options that address the issue as well as accompanying conditions, giving hope and quality of life back to so many.
What factors contribute to digestive issues?
Micronutrients and Food Sensitivity
It’s a generally held notion that certain food can aggravate the digestive system. If you have one of these conditions, you may know your trigger foods that cause inflammation and distress. But, did you know there are also micronutrients like Vitamins B12, C, D and E that are anti-inflammatory and safe for patients to take?
We test vitamins and minerals in serum and intracellular samples of patients and then personalize their treatment in ways never seen before. Digestive health specialists at Causenta, test your reactions to foods and measure nutrient markers to optimize your health and improve your condition.
Exposomes refers to the cumulation of all environmental exposures within a person’s lifetime – and this may be the missing link to understanding the causes of digestive health issues, like inflammatory bowel disease. Exposure to environmental toxins has a different effect on each person, due to the complex interactions between environment, genetics, gut microbiota, immune system and nutrition. Each of these areas is tested by our GI doctors, along with over 100 environmental chemicals. We have developed safe, natural strategies to reduce the damage caused by environmental contaminants.
Infections and Organisms
Have you noticed that the rate of food sensitivities seems to be increasing? Evidence links this increase to environmental chemicals that inflame the microorganisms within the gut. We test the microbiome in various samples to find out if there are organisms affecting digestion and/or metabolism. Profiling of the gut microbiome has the potential to further personalize medicine for these conditions.
Exercise and Digestive Health Conditions
You may be surprised to know that regular exercise can have a beneficial effect on digestive health. A structured exercise plan performed at a specific intensity and duration has been shown to reduce inflammation and provide relief for gi issues.
We provide every Causenta patient with an exercise physiologist and a strength coach at our full onsite gym, which help to maximize results. In some cases, we have reversed or treated health problems people have had for over 20 years!
What are treatment options for gastrointestinal issues?
Although the FDA approves certain medications for treatment of gastrointestinal diseases in the US, no single treatment can be 100% effective for all cases. People with the same diagnosis may have developed the disease due to different mechanisms, such as altered microbiome, exposure to chemicals or genetics. Given the uniqueness of each patient, a singular therapeutic approach may not have widespread success for chronic digestive health conditions.
Our gastrointestinal doctors use a personalized treatment approach with individual testing and therapies such as:
- We target areas within the body to naturally stimulate anti-inflammatory molecules.
- We measure numerous biomarkers to best understand the unique biology of our patient
- Our experts support exercise protocols at our full gym helping patients reduce inflammation.
- Doctors suggest dietary modifications and suggest supplements and nutraceuticals
- We use integrative medicine approach with treatments such as Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF), photobiomodulation and controlled oxidative stress therapies.
Our gastroenterology clinic in Scottsdale, Arizona specializes in more natural and subtle ways to care for digestive health conditions.
