Digestive Health

 

Did you know a healthy functioning digestive tract is the cornerstone to good health? What is also important to note is when something is off in your gut, that something is showing up on your skin. Here are Skin, we want to emphasize the connection that a healthy microbiome= healthy skin.

Some symptoms that may be pointing to an unhealthy gut include:

  • skin irritations such as acne, eczema, psoriasis

  • gas

  • bloating

  • constipation

  • diarrhea

  • heartburn

  • craving sugar

  • constant fatigue

  • low immune system

  • autoimmune conditions

  • food intolerance

So what happens if you have these symptoms? After a comprehensive initial visit, the doctors at Skin will dive deeper to find out the root cause through functional lab testing. These functional lab tests will detect conditions such as yeast overgrowth (you may have heard of Candida before) SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) nutrient deficiencies, neurotransmitter imbalances, food sensitivities, h. pylori, short chain fatty acid deficiency or intestinal permeability. The doctors will choose the right testing for you and a follow-up visit will ensue in which a treatment plan will be laid out for you.

Get to the root cause and feel like your old self again!
