YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT AND YOU ARE WHAT YOU DIGEST!
Today’s prevailing health conditions have their roots in gastrointestinal disorders that include intestinal yeast infections, irritable bowel syndrome [IBS], Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis, spastic bowel or colon, Celiac’s disease, acid reflux, gluten, corn, dairy sensitivities and a myriad of other disorders that are frequently part of the picture, in other seemingly unrelated conditions. Intestinal yeast infections are the most under diagnosed condition and all too often, are frequently dismissed or discounted by physicians.
Gastrointestinal [G.I.] symptoms range from abdominal bloating, gas, constipation and diarrhea, to more involved disorders and complications that might include arthritis, muscle and joint pain, allergies, food sensitivities, yeast infections, immune disorders, asthma, headaches and a multitude of other conditions.
Proper digestion is essential for healthy lifestyles. Health conditions that are not responsive to traditional or conventional medical diagnosis and treatment, should be assessed for efficient digestion, elimination and proper nutritional habits.
Additional factors to gastrointestinal insufficiency may include but are not limited to:
- Hypochlorhydria: Decreased levels of HCL [hydrochloric acid] in the stomach. Insufficient HCL levels cause incomplete digestion, poor absorption and subsequently poor nutritional uptake, despite the fact that one might be eating well and taking supplementation. A Comprehensive Stool and Digestive Analysis (CDSA) can be ordered by your physician to assess appropriate HCL levels.
- Malabsorption: When nutrition and supplementation are not absorbed in the blood stream but rather excreted through the stool. A ‘Comprehensive Digestive and Stool Analysis (CDSA)’ can be ordered by your physician to assess malabsorption issues or a ‘Urinary Indican’ test will measure the complete digestion of protein.
- Parasites: Come in all shapes, sizes and varieties! Parasites can be any type of ‘unfriendly’ organism ranging from yeast, amoebas, giardia and several other strains of bacteria. They are an overgrowth of unfriendly cultures that become a significant deterrent to health and wellness.
The G.I. conditions referenced above and their related symptoms are eminently treatable through Integrative Manual Therapy [IMT], alternative and nutritional medicine protocols. Integrative Manual Therapy techniques utilized by Power In Motion assist in facilitating the detoxification of the G.I. system, precise, gentle and delicate organ stimulation, lymphatic drainage and myofascial restrictions within the abdominal cavity that inhibit the free and uninhibited peristaltic functioning of the G.I. system.
Give me good digestion Lord, and also something to digest. But where and how that something comes… I leave to Thee who knoweth best! -Mary Webb
