“All disease begins in the gut” – Hippocrates
Your digestive system is more than just the place you break down food and absorb nutrients. Your digestive system is home to 70% of all your immune system cells and 90% of your total serotonin production and storage, giving it a vital role to play in mind-body health & wellness. Poor digestive health may be affecting more than just your digestion and impacting your overall health in profound ways.
Food Sensitivity Testing
Any food can become an intolerance and even healthy foods can negatively impact your health if it causes inflammation. Food sensitivities can manifest as non IgE immune reactions (unlike a food allergy), and can be difficult to identify. Unidentified food sensitivities can result in a variety of health issues including eczema, headaches and migraines, hives, digestive issues, joint pain and more. Dr. Carly can order food sensitivity testing that is able to identify non IgE mediated food reactions. This allows Dr, Carly to best design a food plan that reduces your inflammation and restores healthy digestive function.
