Herbs are used to treat conditions of the GI tract and the associated symptoms, and can be used to balance the immune system. They can be used to reduce stress, and decrease gas, cramping and bloating. Herbs are available in several forms including tablets, capsules and liquids.
Nutrition and Lifestyle Counseling
Diet and exercise, along with nutritional supplementation, play a large role in improving gut health and maintaining a healthy immune system. Our diet largely influences the regularity of bowel movements, while supplementation with probiotics can further aid in improving gut health and decreasing diarrhea and constipation. Unhealthy foods, or individual food sensitivities, can wreak havoc on the gut and promote further autoimmune attack.
Vitamins and Minerals
Supplementation with specific vitamins and minerals is important for optimal health and cellular function. Nutrient deficiencies can lead to decreased immune function, fatigue, and development of other diseases. Understanding the right nutrients for repletion, including accurate dosage and quality, is important for ensuring effective results.
