The digestive system is responsible for breaking down and for the absorption of micro/macronutrients necessary to sustain, regenerate and repair the body. It is also the powerhouse of most of the body's immune system, thus a healthy gut leads to strong immune system.
The digestive system is also one of our main detoxification organs. It absorbs the nutrients required for the body and eliminates both intrinsic toxins – toxins or byproducts produced by the body and also aids in elimination of extrinsic toxins – toxins absorbed from the environment.
The function of our digestive system is affected by several factors such as stress, food sensitivities/allergies, and from medication side effects. An imbalance in the digestive system leads to several chronic diseases, therefore healing the gut should be the first step in treating most chronic conditions.
Our highly skilled practitioners will guide you through this program by helping you identify and remove any food sensitivities/intolerances.
Additionally, the program is focused on reducing inflammation and helping to replace healthy gut flora. Nutritional supplementation and enzymes may be suggested if the individual is deficient with the goal of the program to regenerate injured tissues and to optimize nutrient absorption and waste elimination.
