“All disease begins in the gut” – Hippocrates
Your digestive system is a complicated multi organ system responsible for much more than just breaking down food and absorbing your nutrients. It is also home to more than 70% of all your body’s immune system cells giving it a starring role in a healthy immune response and immunoregulation. The GI tract is also tasked with making 90% of your total serotonin, one of the neurotransmitters responsible for a balanced mood, giving it a vital role to play in your overall mind-body health & wellness. Suboptimal digestive health may be affecting more than just your digestion and impacting your overall health in profound ways.
“You are what you eat, so choose wisely”.
Food Sensitivity Testing
Any food can become an intolerance or sensitivity and even healthy foods may negatively impact your health if there is a disruption in the integrity of your digestive lining caused by poor eating, alcohol, coffee, medications, stress, lack of probiotic rich foods etc). Food sensitivities are different than food allergies by definition but both types of immune reactions can manifest in similar ways. Unidentified food sensitivities can result in a variety of health issues including eczema, headaches and migraines, hives, digestive issues, joint pain and more. In combination with her clinical skills, Dr. Wendler N.D. uses an accredited medical lab to interpret blood samples for food sensitivity assessments. There are a range of food panels to choose from based on your dietary preferences and needs.
