Ulcerative Colitis, Crohns and IBS

Have you been struggling with a GI condition with no hope in sight?

People with IBS, Crohn's, Colitis, and other GI conditions are often told they need to "manage" or "deal with" life long symptoms such as abdominal pain or discomfort, frequent diarrhea or constipation, a change in bowel habits, urgency for bowel movements, a feeling of incomplete evacuation (tenesmus), bloating, and/or abdominal distention. 

Additionally, those who have one or more of these Functional Disorders of the digestive system commonly also have gastro-esophageal reflux, frequent bladder infections, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, headaches, migraines, backache, and more to deal with as well.

It can affect your ability to fulfill the commitments you've made, to spend time with family and friends, and to be truly present in your own life. It is no wonder that affective disorders, such as depression, anxiety, and/or panic disorders are so commonly seen in people with these conditions.

Fortunately, There is Another Way!

As a Functional Medicine Practitioner, I take a different approach to the treatment and prevention of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Crohn's, Ulcerative Colitis, and other GI issues. Where conventional medicine simply attempts to mask the symptoms of these often debilitating conditions with aggressive, often damaging, treatment protocols, I specialize in treating the CAUSE of bowel dysfunction. With years of clinical experience and access to specialized Functional Lab testing, no stone will be left unturned in determining the causes of your Colitis. Once the causes are discovered and resolved, the GI symptoms just...VANISH.

Doesn't it make more sense to treat the cause of IBS and Ulcerative Colitis rather than try to just "cover-up" the symptoms with medications? This is the reason I am different than other doctors you may have seen and why my Comprehensive Functional Medicine program is so successful in resolving GI conditions.


There are many causes and triggers associated with IBS, Crohn's, Colitis and other inflammatory bowel conditions. Triggers and causes ranging from metabolic problems like hidden bowel infections, (yeast, parasites, bacteria), nutritional deficiencies, food allergies and chemical toxicity. With functional neurological and laboratory testing, we can pinpoint the exact causes of the bowel inflammation and irritation, correct them, and give you your life back!


Our Comprehensive Functional Medicine program is so successful because we address both the neurological AND metabolic roots of disease and dysfunction, along with environmental and lifestyle-related causes. By utilizing precise Brain Based Therapy when indicated and specific metabolic treatments, we can give you the relief from the inflammatory GI conditions that you desperately need. The BBT is designed to restore normal nerve impulses to the bowel while the metabolic care resolves the biochemical causes of IBS and other bowel diseases. These therapies are designed to address the causes, not just "mask" or "cover-up" the symptoms as drugs do. No matter how long you've suffered from IBS, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn's, Colitis, or other GI issues, and no matter how severe it is, this program works! And it will work for you too!
