Gastro-intestinal Disorders

Over 70 million people in the United States suffer some form of GastroIntestinal (GI) disorder. Flatulence (gas), bloating, stomach pain, diarrhea, and constipation are extremely common symptoms that are not just problematic in themselves, but often associated with numerous other chronic, systemic diseases. Modern science (Functional Medicine) confirms what ancient healing traditions (i.e. Traditional Chinese Medicine) have known for centuries: the GI system holds a central role in health and disease.

At Oasis Healing Arts, we carefully assess your current and past health history and utilize necessary laboratory tests to determine if there are any excesses (sugar, inflammation, food allergies, candida/yeast) deficiencies (inadequate nutrient intake or absorption, compromised intestinal wall integrity) and imbalances (“good” versus “bad” colonic bacteria).

All patients presenting with GI Disorders will invariably be advised on an elimination diet, as well as on key supplements that can provide powerful support for healing and rebalancing your GI tract. We understand that the Enteric Nervous System of the GI tract makes our gut very much our “second brain.” A network of over 100 million neurons line our gut. These nerve cells communicate with our brain, respond to our emotions, and “remember” experiences. Thus, addressing psychological stress and emotional issues can often help heal symptoms of GI distress.
