Gut Health

“I have suffered from chronic stomach issues since my late teens, including acid reflux, bloating and general stomach upset. Now some thirty years later, after becoming a patient of Physicians Total Wellness I have found complete relief from my gastric issues. The integrated practice of Dr. Dhillon has truly changed how I approach decisions about my health and well being choices.”

Critical To Total Health and Wellness

Gut health is not just about keeping things moving. Your gut performs many more functions than you might imagine. Your gut produces enzymes to break down your food. It contains beneficial bacteria that process that food. Your gut absorbs the nutrients that sustain you and it removes toxins that can harm you. It helps to regulate your metabolism and impacts your hormonal health. Your gut is critical to a healthy immune system and impacts inflammation in many parts of your body, including your joints, your heart and your blood vessels.

A Wide Range of Unhealthy Symptoms

In many ways, your gut defines you. In fact, there are few aspects of your general health that are not impacted by your gut health. Symptoms of an unhealthy gut can range widely:

  • From indigestion to debilitating food allergies
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Skin Disorders and hypersensitivity reactions
  • Regulation of inflammation and inflammatory mediators
  • Brain and Nerve Health (encephalopathy, MS, heavy metal toxicity)
  • Mental acuity and fatigue
  • Immune responsiveness and disorders of immunity
