SO, WHAT MAKES ME DIFFERENT THAN ANY OTHER DOCTOR YOU HAVE SEEN?
As a Functional Medicine doctor in Bloomington Illinois, I take a different approach to the treatment and prevention of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Crohn's and Colitis. Where as all the doctors you have seen before treat only the symptoms of IBS, Crohn's and Colitis, I specialize in treating the CAUSE of bowel inflammation. With the use of very specialized neurological and functional laboratory analysis, no stone will be left unturned in determining the exact cause of your inflammatory bowel condition. Once the cause is discovered and resolved, the IBS or irritable bowel symptoms just...VANISH. Doesn't it make more sense to treat the cause of IBS and Crohn's rather than try to just "cover up" the symptoms with medications. This is the reason I am different that any other doctor you have seen and why my GI recovery program is so successful.
ABOUT IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME
The primary symptoms of IBS are abdominal pain or discomfort in association with frequent diarrhea or constipation, and a change in bowel habits. There may also be urgency for bowel movements, a feeling of incomplete evacuation (tenesmus), bloating or abdominal distention. People with IBS, Crohn's or Colitis commonly have gastro-esophageal reflux, symptoms relating to the genitourinary system, frequent bladder infections, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, headaches, migraines, backache and symptoms such as depression and anxiety.
WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME?
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!
HOW DO WE TREAT IBS, CROHN'S AND COLITIS?
Our IBS and IBD relief program is so successful because we address both the neurological AND metabolic causes of irritable bowel syndrome. By utilizing precise BBT(brain based therapy) if indicated and metabolic treatments, we can give you the relief from the inflammatory colitis you desperately need. The BBT are simple home-based exercises, customized for each patient and designed to restore normal nerve impulse to the bowel while the metabolic care resolves the biochemical causes of IBS and other bowel disease as mentioned in the section above. No medications are needed. 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 or Colitis or how severe it is, this program works! And, it will work for you too!
If this approach of treating the CAUSE, not the symptoms, makes sense to you, call or email my office today for an appointment. I do not accept all cases, only those I truly believe I can help.
