Digestive Disorder Treatment
Digestive issues are common, but that doesn’t mean you have to live with them. Even if your conventional doctor has told you all your tests are normal, or has just labeled you with irritable bowel syndrome,
Our doctors are here to get to the underlying cause.
There are common culprits of digestive issues – food intolerances, stress, changes in gut flora, inflammation – but it is different for each person.
The Naturopathic Doctors at Onyx Integrative Medicine approach digestive issues using the most advanced specialty testing such as comprehensive stool analyses and food allergy panels to understand where your digestive issues are stemming from.
If you are ready to say good-bye to bloating, constant abdominal pain, leaky gut, and irregular digestion call our Naturopathic Doctors or book a new patient appointment.

How We Differ From Conventional Treatment
Many digestive issues are considered ‘functional issues’ which means that all laboratory testing and imaging appear normal. However, symptoms do not resolve.
Because of this, it is not uncommon for people to be told by their doctor that their digestive symptoms are ‘all in their heads’ or a given a diagnosis of depression or anxiety and then an antidepressant medication.
While it is true that our digestive system and our moods affect one another, the truth is, the doctor may not have ordered the right tests, and when you are not testing for the right thing, it is unlikely you will find it.
The conventional approach to digestive disorders usually includes symptom management through medications. For instance, it is common to receive an acid-blocking medication for heartburn.
However, the drug does not treat the underlying problem, and in many cases, it isn’t even useful in controlling symptoms.
Also, it is not common to discuss how food intolerances, nutritional deficiencies, and emotional links could be contributing to your symptoms.
The Naturopathic Doctors at Onyx Integrative understand the connection between our digestive health, emotional well-being, energy levels, and stress. They work with you to find solutions, not cover symptoms with medications.
