Improving Quality of Life through Natural Treatments for Digestion
Digestion is an essential function for the human body and plays a significant role in our overall health. However, many people suffer from discomfort and other negative effects after they eat, often without receiving a vital diagnosis. Dr. Shani A. Cooper at Root & Soul in La Mesa can help you determine if the pain, discomfort, or other symptoms you experience are a signal of a larger concern. She’ll also help you design natural treatments for digestion issues to reduce symptoms and even improve your health.
A Healthy Gut is Vital
Not only does digestion play a vital role in gaining essential resources like calories, vitamins, and minerals for your body to function, but this process provides other vital chemicals your body needs to survive and function properly. As you break down food, your body creates gasotransmitters and neurotransmitters that are used in the gut and throughout the body. These chemicals have been linked to vital body functions in the brain, your emotional state, as well as your natural ability to combat and ward off diseases. When you do not naturally create these chemicals, it can lead to serious health concerns.
While you may produce and process gasotransmitters properly, you may suffer from significant discomfort after every meal. This is not normal and you do not have to live with pain and uncomfortable sensations. While it can be disconcerting to discover that your body is not functioning well on a very basic level, treatment does not have to require invasive procedures, large amounts of prescriptions, or other intensive approaches. When you do not naturally create or regulate these chemicals, it can lead to serious health concerns.
Natural Remedies to Restore Balance
Often, learning the right dietary changes can change your entire life, addressing issues such as:
- Constipation or Diarrhea
- Acid Regurgitation
- Nausea or Vomiting
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Dr. Cooper will work with your to determine what foods you should increase, decrease, or cut out from your diet. She can also recommend other lifestyle changes or medicinal herbs to bring balance back to your gut and improve your overall health.
