Abdominal Bloating and Excess Gas

Abdominal bloating is a condition is which the stomach feels uncomfortably full. Often bloating is accompanied by a greater than normal amount of gas.

Abdominal Pain

Abdominal pain can vary from a mild stomachache to sharp, stabbing pains and more. The causes of stomach pain also come from a broad range of possible conditions, including: indigestion, constipation, Crohn’s disease, GERD, and more.

GERD

GERD refers to a condition that allows the contents of the stomach to leak into the esophagus. This often causes heartburn, irritation, and other esophageal problems.

SIBO and Intestinal Infections

SIBO and intestinal infections refer to an overgrowth of bacteria in the small intestines. Often these are bacteria that should not be in the small intestines or are growing at higher rates than normal, resulting in pain, excess gas, diarrhea, and other symptoms.

Food Sensitivities

Food sensitivity refers to a reaction some people have due to an inability to properly digest certain foods. Food sensitivities are distinct from food allergies.

Low Energy, Fatigue

Low energy and fatigue often are often the result of problems with the gastrointestinal tract that prevent a patient from properly absorbing the nutrients they need.
