Digestion & Skin

Digestive Health

The digestive system is a major foundation for good health in the body. Digestive health can be affected by the foods we eat, lifestyle factors such as stress, inflammation and the bacterial balance in the gut.

We will help you understand the root cause of your digestive concerns and will guide you in finding a dietary plan that works best for you. Naturopathic treatments will help to heal the gut, restore bacterial balance and optimize digestion. Treatments may include food as medicine, clinical nutrition, herbal medicine, lifestyle modification and acupuncture. If necessary we have lab testing options to diagnose food sensitivities, dysbiosis/yeast overgrowth, SIBO, inflammation and functional digestive issues.

Common digestive concerns include:
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Food sensitivities, food intolerance
  • Colitis, Crohn’s, Diverticulitis
  • Constipation, diarrhea, gas and bloating
  • GERD or acid reflux
  • Leaky gut
  • Chronic yeast overgrowth and dysbiosis
  • SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth)

Skin Conditions

Modern medicine has a tendency to treat skin conditions with topical treatments. Much of the time these treatments suppress the symptoms but do not fully restore health. Naturopathic medicine strives to understand the root cause of a skin condition which may be related to diet, food sensitivities, inflammation, hormones, digestive health, stress and genetics.

We have gentle, natural medicine support for the treatment of the following conditions:

  • Eczema, rashes
  • Acne
  • Psoriasis
  • Warts
