Happy and Healthy...Both define your health….more accurately the future of your health.
Do you have a limited diet either due to allergies, reflux, or are just picky? I can almost guarantee you will have some kind of medical problem in a decade. Why? Because if you are not mixing and alternating your food to the seasons, then your body is suffering from deficiency somewhere. Have a deficient diet long enough, and your gut will suffer. If your gut suffers, your going to have an autoimmune disease. What Do I mean by the gut? Well it is your entire digestion process, the ability to tolerate/assimilate your food and transport it efficiently. Also, if you do not poop at least 2x per day….your system is slow n sluggish like an old septic system. Where does that stuff go? Well it “backs up” as poisons in your body. Most chronic illnesses are autoimmune related. Another way of saying that is inflammatory related.
We now know that depression and the gut are intrinsically linked. If your gut is not functioning property….you will probably end up depressed or just feeling “down in the dumps” for extended periods. Unexplained feelings, not feeling yourself and “feeling out of it” have been historically blamed on hormones….but this is all gut mediated. I have been specializing in the gut for over 20 years.
One of the things I love to do is help cancer patients gain weight and keep their weight up while they are going through chemotherapy and radiation. With this, I also keep their blood counts stable and normal, so they can get through the process a lot more easily, with less complications.
So if you notice that your not “feeling like you used to” or have been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, cancer, MS, fibromyalgia or any other inflammatory disease, make an appointment to come see me. If you have been to “so many doctors and no one has been able to help”, come see me…I specialize in complicated cases and love the challenge.
