Do you have unexplained gut symptoms?

Brought to you by Dr. Christina Bergstrom - Northwest Functional Medicine - MEDICAL INSIDER

NORTHWEST FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE - Dr. Christina BergstromMany people visit their general practitioners hoping to cure their Irritable Bowel Syndrome and other unexplained gut symptoms such as heartburn, bloating, and gas. Too often, however, those patients will leave dissatisfied that the prescriptions they received did not effectively help them to deal with the problem.

The biggest issue facing those treated by conventional medicine is that care tends to focus on the symptoms rather than the causes of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. IBS is caused by certain changes to the gastrointestinal tract that prevent it from functioning properly. If you want a healthy gut, medications that cover up your symptoms aren't enough; you must look for and treat the CAUSES of IBS.

When you work with one of the functional medicine doctors at Northwest Functional, you'll be working with your own personal health advocate. Their unique understanding of how your health and gut are related allows them to order the right tests and pinpoint the reasons WHY you are experiencing symptoms. Whether it's sensitivity to certain foods, bacterial growth in the small intestine that produce a lot of gas, or something else entirely, we identify the cause of your gut symptoms and figure out the best course of treatment.
