THE COMPLETE DIGESTIVE WELLNESS AND SUPPORT PROGRAM

Experts say that our life expectancy has increased over the last one hundred years. Although we are living longer, has our quality of life suffered? Is your quality of life suffering due to a digestive issue? You may be suffering from a serious digestive illness, such as Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome, or ulcerative colitis. These are overt digestive problems that are becoming more prevalent in our society. You are not alone. Studies indicate that one-third to one-half of adults have a digestive problem. The serious digestive illnesses mentioned above are not the only digestive issues that exist that can decrease your quality of life. Digestive issues can be related to any of the following:

  • Constipation is prevalent in our society. One out of every four people is constipated. The International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders classifies constipation as: reduced stool frequency (normal = 1 stool per day), hard stools, difficulty passing stools, straining, painful bowel movements, or feeling of incomplete emptying after defecation.
  • Gas and bloating after meals is very common but is NOT NORMAL. If after eating meals, you need to undo the top button of your pants, then you have a digestive issue.
  • Chronic diarrhea or loose stools can be caused by infections-parasites –bacteria-viral-fungal, irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, malabsorption, medications, foods that disagree with your body, or lactose intolerance. Diarrhea is a symptom of an underlying issue.

THE COMPLETE DIGESTIVE WELLNESS AND SUPPORT PROGRAM is a solution that offers the highest level of support to help resolve your digestive problems. Digestive problems can be multi-factorial. For this reason, we may look into many aspects of your life to help resolve your digestive issue.

Q&A

How does a consultation work?

We work with clients in Encinitas, California or anywhere in the world via phone as well as Skype and Facebook.

 During your initial phone consultation we will review your Health History Forms and Seven Day Food and Sleep Journal and make recommendations for lab tests that are appropriate for your specific health issues.

 A lab test allows us to determine the root cause of your problem. It may require a collection of stool, urine, saliva, or blood. All lab collections are done in the privacy of your own home. Once the specimens are collected, they are sent to the lab. Once the lab receives the specimen, the turnaround time is approximately seven to ten working days. Interpretation of the results will be discussed in a follow up appointment. We will fine tune nutrition, implement a Therapeutic Support Plan with supplements, and discuss lifestyle recommendations. Subsequent consultations are scheduled to monitor your progress and to modify your program.

What is the fee for a consultation?
The initial consultation will take 60 minutes. Follow-up consultations will range from 15-30 minutes and will be billed on the hourly rate.  This does not include lab testing or recommended supplementation.
