We experience a variety of problems with digestion. I have found that a workup that involves stool culture, endoscopy and colonoscopy can miss much of what is causing us problems. I use specialty labs to do much of the evaluations I do with you. I also believe that nutraceutical (natural) combinations can often relieve the problem with few side effects.
There are many causes of these conditions and a thorough workup is usually required to know what path of investigation is most likely to get good results. The work up begins with a talk with me involving a past medical history, family history and the process of the development of your symptoms. We also want to know what you have already tried to resolve the problem and to see what tests have already been done, if any. If you have testing, please bring it with you to your appointment.
Here is a list of the conditions I work to resolve.
- Indigestion (GERD)
- Food Allergies
- Gas and Bloating
- Pain After Eating
