DIGESTIVE DISTURBANCES & IBS

 

IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) affects between 25 and 45 million people in the United States and is the second most common cause of missed work each year.

Yet, it is commonly dismissed in the conventional medical world.

But Functional Medicine may have an edge up on finding the HIDDEN, ROOT CAUSES.

We know there are many reasons for digestive discomfort.

With specialty lab testing, addressing NUTRITIONAL DEFICIENCIES and CELLULAR TOXICITY, we have a good chance at helping patients narrow down their exact cause of IBS.

Common IBS Symptoms

  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Inability to empty bowels (or feels incomplete)
  • Indigestion
  • Nausea
  • Passing excessive amounts of gas
  • Urgent need to defecate
  • Abdominal cramping or discomfort
  • Anxiety
  • Depression

IBS Possible Causes

Many patients who suffer from IBS may also suffer from dysbiosis (unbalanced gut bacteria), SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), or underlying food sensitivities.

Most functional medicine practitioners will utilize an ADVANCED STOOL TEST to get an overview of the good versus bad bacteria balance in your gut.

SIBO (Small Intestine Bacteria Overgrowth)

This can affect up to 80% of patients with IBS and is a variation of dysbiosis where the bacteria meant for your large intestine has overgrown and set up in the small intestine.

Unlike your large intestine, your small intestine typically has relatively few bacteria due to the rapid flow of contents and the presence of bile. But if the small intestine’s function has slowed, it causes an ideal breeding ground for the overgrowth of bacteria.

One of the most important things when it comes to SIBO is getting to the root of what caused it in the first place to prevent future relapse.

Food Sensitivities

Food sensitivities are extremely common and seem to be on the rise They differ from allergies as they won’t trigger an immediate immune response.

Food sensitivities symptoms can show up days after the ingested food. If a patient continues to consume the food, the body is attacking; this can cause digestive disorders and inflammation in the gut leading to more severe long-term issues.

Testing using ADVANCED LAB WORK can be very useful to help narrow down the exact foods your body may be reacting to.

Summary

IBS is a common GI disorder that is often overlooked and can be challenging to diagnose and treat.

Our goal is to determine the HIDDEN, ROOT CAUSES of your IBS using ADVANCED testing.

By utilizing specialty testing and developing a personalized treatment plan, we can provide patients with relief and improved quality of life.

This is the HOPE of Functional Medicine and the PROMISE of The Roadmap To Health!

When I first met with Dr. White, I was very skeptical. I grew up in a house where Diabetes was common and I always "thought" I knew what and what not to eat. I was impressed with Dr. White and Dr. Kaufman's knowledge regarding a healthy weight loss and a healthy way of life. It was more of a holistic approach. The blood work that was done initially, was a lot more detailed than what you get at a yearly physical. I had always been concerned and careful about what I ate, but I never knew the reasons why certain "healthy" foods were better than others. As I began to eat not only healthier, but smarter. The weight came off. It wasn't at the speed of light, but with Dr. White's support and guidance I was able to surpass my goal weight. Advanced Integrated Health is the best gift I have ever given to myself.

I have been going to Dr. White since 2013 and started off extremely skeptical. I thought I knew it all! Boy, I didn't know anything. Dr. Bob (as my boys call him) has changed my life! I have energy, less anxiety, lost lots of weight and inches and just feel amazing! I have sent many friends to him and they all say the same thing. He is extremely knowledgeable and always is educating himself on the latest areas in integrated health medicine. I will never stop coming to see Dr. White!!!!!

A very nice practice to visit! I always feel so at home and relaxed. What I've learned here has truly changed my life and helped me to make some lasting improvements. Better energy, weight lost, more stamina, better sleep, better mood. In 3 months, I was able to turn around some significant areas in my bloodwork and I'm more hopeful about the future than ever. I have a chronic condition (PCOS) that I've been trying to learn how to approach for years and I FINALLY feel like I've gotten some good tools to do so! Dr. White has been so great with answering my questions whenever I come to visit. Also very accessible via phone and email!

I started seeing Dr. Kaufman during May 2014. I was overweight and had little energy. Dr. Kaufman put together a diet plan along with some vitamins, shakes and supplements. Since then, I have lost over 20 lbs, am full of energy and sleeping much better. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. I also encouraged my husband to see Dr. White. He is doing great and lost over 20 lbs. It's been a wonderful experience and I highly recommend AIH.

When I first walked into Advanced Integrated Health, I was overweight, sluggish and just not feeling myself. I met with Dr. White who was very understanding and eager to help me attain my goal of restoring my health. In a few months I have lost 25 pounds, i have my energy back and I feel like myself again. It took hard work but with the support of Dr. White I was able to do it. Not only did I lose weight, Dr. White taught me a new way of living healthy. I owe much my success to him and I am grateful I walked into his office.

Which is exactly what I Needed!!!

What a great Experience I am having! With the Encouragement and support of Dr. Bob White daily, I have increased my energy which has lead to weight loss.

A friend recommended Dr. White as a natural approach to weight loss and healing. I was contemplating bariatric surgery but was afraid of the long term problems this procedure could cause. Dr. White was very thorough explaining the process and welcomed all my questions. I must say at the beginning it was not easy but if weight loss was easy we would have an obesity epidemic. This is definitely the best approach to weight loss I know of and I’ve tried them all. You will not starve, but by eating the right foods you will see an almost immediate difference in the way you feel and look. Dr. White will guide you through the process of eliminating the foods that affect your body negatively and introducing those that benefit you. I’ve lost over 25 lbs. in 6 months and I feel fantastic. My energy level is high; the quality of my sleep has improved tremendously. I don’t suffer from pain or panic attacks, blood pressure if perfect. If you are serious about losing weight and improving your health this is definitely the place to go. Everyone in his office is very welcoming. I highly recommend him.
