Digestive Disorder Treatment Melbourne

The Gut Microbiome Can Impact Digestion And Intestinal Functions!

Digestive disorders manifest in various ways. A stomach ache may have more underlying reasons than you think.

Digestion And Absorption Are Vital To The Body Obtaining Its Nutrients

When is the last time you had a stomach ache? In the hustle of everyday life, stomach aches, pains, acidity, heartburn and conditions such as these have become so common that people have taken these to be the side effects of a busy life. However, these actually point to something amiss within the GI tract and the digestive process. 

Starting from the oesophagus to the mouth, then the stomach, the intestines, the pancreatic glands and the liver, every organ has a special role in the digestion, breakdown, absorption of the nutrients and then their uptake by the cells of the body. When any of these processes is hindered or isn’t taking place optimally, it could suggest an underlying digestive problem. The leaky gut syndrome is a common reason for toxins in the food and bacteria to leak out through an inflamed and damaged gut lining and seep into the blood from where these can cause disease. A gut lining that is damaged is a haven for digestive disorders.

What Are The Symptoms Of A Digestive Disorder?

Digestive system problems occur when the group of organs responsible for breaking down food and liquids to absorbable forms are unable to function, leaving the body to work on limited available nutrients which eventually results in weakness, gastric problems, digestive system diseases and even cancers.

What is GERD?

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease is a digestive disorder characterised by the acid in the stomach flowing in the reverse direction back into the oesophagus. This reflux of the acid irritates the oesophagus and causes a burning sensation in the chest area. In order to diagnose a person with GERD, they should experience mild acid reflux at least twice a week and severe acid reflux at least once a week. Along with this, regurgitation of food is also seen and disruption in their daily life. 

The stomach acidic conditions and the gut microbiome are such that any infectious agents such as bacteria, toxins, viruses etc. are destroyed before they cause further damage within the body. When the internal homoeostasis of the body is not in sync, the microbiome and gut flora are disturbed and thus, infectious agents find an easy way to cause disease. Another problem seen when this occurs is that essential nutrients that are vital to the body cannot make their way to the tissues and the cells. This leads to nutrient deficiencies and other complications.

Seek Natural Help For Digestive Problems!

The modern medical approach is to resolve acidity and heartburn or digestive disorder with an OTC medication. These range from proton pump inhibitors to antacids. But the problem recurs. And though these medications treat the symptoms and side effects they do not go to the root cause of why the problem is so persistent.

Naturopathy aims at correcting what went wrong at the root level, righting the microbiome, restoring gut harmony. The microbial flora performs important roles which deal with producing nutrients that are vital for the body to make antibodies and different molecules, and act as immune system modulators. 

Through naturopathy, the underlying issue is resolved. Once diet, lifestyle and habits are corrected, you will be on the road to betterment. Naturopath Domenic Pisanelli performs a comprehensive analysis of your lifestyle habits and what triggers digestive disorders. Once the root is ascertained, a plan of action is then decided upon as to how to limit the stressors and introduce positive changes in lifestyle. A Microbiome Map is also measured using a stool sample to get a good understanding of the current gut function and all the different levels of bacteria.

Through your journey with naturopathy you will discover how by simply paying attention to what the body needs, and what fatigues it, you will be able to get onto the path of better health. 

At My Vital Health Solutions, you can be assured that your digestive disorders will be helped by:

  • A brief history is taken to understand the different stressors and digestive disorders
  • A Microbiome Map is measured in order to get levels of bacterial population in the gut
  • Antimicrobials  prescribed for the bad bacteria
  • The leaky gut syndrome is treated by foods and supplements that help the gut lining heal and be restored 
  • A diet that is filled with fresh fruits and vegetables and foods that are not refined is prescribed. This gives the gut lining time to heal and is not heavy on the intestines 
  • Counselling and friendly and warm staff who ensure confidentiality and make it easy to communicate about stressors
  • The goal is to lead a happy life once the triggers have been managed

Feel well from within! No ‘miracles or get healthy overnight’ approach. Simply natural therapy.
