Acid reflux disease or GERD is a chronic digestive disorder where acid from the stomach makes its way up into the esophagus.
GERD occurs when the lower esophageal sphincter–a muscle at the end of the esophagus, doesn’t open or close like it should.
As a result, GERD sufferers often experience unpleasant symptoms such as heartburn and acid indigestion.
Doctors often recommend a change to eating habits as a method of treatment. This is where our practitioners comer in.
Surely, our GERD nutritionist and GERD dietitian can help you modify your diet and reduce or eliminate altogether the symptoms associated with Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease. Achieving better digestive health is indeed possible.
Inflammatory Bowel Disease or IBD groups together two conditions: Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
Sufferers of Crohn’s disease experience the inflammation of the lining of any part of the digestive tract. Typically, it affects a part of the small intestine just before the colon.
Ulcerative colitis, on the other hand, occurs in the colon and the rectum, causing long-lasting inflammation and ulcers.
Our practitioners have specialized training in IBD management, and can help create a Crohn’s or colitis diet plan. Specifically, the meal plan will list of foods to avoid with colitis or Crohn’s, as well as foods to eat with either one of the two conditions.
FODMAP or fermentable oligosaccharides disaccharides monosaccharides and polyols, or short-chain carbs that the small intestine has trouble absorbing.
As a direct result, digestive distress occurs when these foods are consumed.
Typically, sufferers experience gas, bloating, pain, diarrhea, abdominal distention, etc.
No doubt, our nutritionists and dietitians can help those who are looking for help creating a nutritionally-balanced low FODMAP diet.
Together with one of our practitioners you can create a low FODMAP meal plan, alleviating some or all of the unpleasant symptoms, and achieve better digestive health.
SIBO or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth is a condition that results in excess bacteria in the small intestine.
As with other gastrointestinal conditions, the SIBO symptoms can be as follows:
Although SIBO isn’t fully understood, it is believed to be associated with other digestive health conditions. A SIBO breath test may be used to diagnose SIBO.
Because many people find some form of relief after the introduction of a SIBO diet plan or meal plan, seeking the guidance of a nutritionist or dietitian could be an important course of action.
In conjunction with your doctor, digestion help is certainly possible.
