Digestive Health

It’s time for you to start having glorious bowel movements. We mean it. We don’t take healthy BM’s lightly at Shine. A healthy digestive tract is the cornerstone to your health.

How’s your digestion?
Do you experience:

  • Gas?
  • Bloating?
  • Stomach cramps?
  • Stomach aches?
  • Diarrhea?
  • Constipation?
  • Acid Reflux?

If so, you may need gut restoration!

An optimized gastrointestinal tract is absolutely necessary to feel your best.

Not only can symptoms like bloating, abdominal pain, acid reflux, and constipation reflect a digestive problem, but even headaches, brain fog, depression, fatigue, hormone problems and frequent infections can be a clue of subpar GI health.

Your gastrointestinal tract is responsible for digesting and absorbing everything you put in your mouth. Not only is it responsible for getting your nutrients into your body, your GI tract also consists of loads of lymph tissue and trillions of bacteria both of which make up approximately 80% of your immune system.

Did you know that you’re made up of 10x more bacteria than your own human cells?! The proper balance of your gut bacteria is crucial to optimal health.

Let’s not forget that the GI tract is also responsible for elimination of solid waste. When any of these functions aren’t optimal, your body can’t absorb nutrients necessary to function, can’t remove toxins, and can’t keep you healthy.

To find the underlying cause of your discomfort, we offer a myriad of tests, which may include:

  • Leaky gut (intestinal permeability)
  • Food allergies/sensitivities
  • Gluten sensitivity
  • SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth)
  • H. Pylori
  • Fructose sensitivity
  • Candida/yeast overgrowth
  • Parasites
  • Enzyme deficiencies

Once you get your necessary testing done, a Shine doctor will design a customized and individualized gut restoration program for you. Everyone is different but therapies may include:

  • Food as medicine
  • Targeted nutritional supplements
  • Herbal medicine
  • Probiotics
  • Mind/body medicine
  • Intramuscular injection therapy
  • Nutritional IV therapy

Let’s get your gut healthy! We are so excited to work with you on this journey.
