How does the Nutrition Program Work?
Together we will analyze your diet, sleep, bowel movement frequency, and stress management as well as your test results.
With this information we can develop a program based on science that can relieve the underlying causes of symptoms and improve all of the body’s systems.
Stress and How it Affects Digestion
The body reacts to stress – any kind of stress – whether mental/emotional, environmental, structural and chemical. Any kind of stress can affect your digestion. In addition, the foods you choose to eat can affect your system. Chemical stress can come from the kinds of food we consume.
A person’s reaction to stress can include:
- Weight gain, weight loss, stomach pain, acid reflux, headache, constipation, bloat, gas, burping, diarrhea, sinus congestion, muscle aches and pain, exhaustion and mental sluggishness.
- Food allergies or intolerances can lead to nutrient malabsorption.
- Vitamin, mineral, essential fatty acids, amino acids, and anti-oxidants malabsorption may lead to chronic illness.
How the body reacts to mal-absorption is a reaction that differs from person to person.
Because of this, it is important that we check for anemia, cardiovascular system health, vitamin D levels, kidney function, adrenal dysfunction as well as infections.
Your diet is a critical factor in this. Our principal goal is to reduce irritation and inflammation in the intestines, allow improved nutrient absorption, and help improve health overall.
