Gastrointestinal Disorders

Gastrointestinal conditions can be debilitating to those they affect. One that is commonly overlooked by the medical community is Leaky Gut Syndrome. With Leaky Gut Syndrome, the stomach has chronic inflammation that eventually can invite the autoimmune system to overreact. Unfortunately, this overreaction can cascade into other symptoms as well.

The condition weakens the walls of the stomach damaging tissue and increasing the permeability. This makes it so that unfiltered waste and undigested food can leak into the bloodstream. This can cause inflammation and infection widespread throughout the body.

The Autoimmune system then sends antibodies to attack the inflammation. However, if the system is weakened, the autoimmune system can become overactive leading to a cascade autoimmune response that can cause similar overreactions to other body symptoms.

What Can You Expect from Gastrointestinal Care?

When chiropractic treatment is effective, the autoimmune system can calm down and behave more normally. The inflammation in the stomach subsides and the body is back in a more balanced state. You may find that many of your symptoms subside or at least decrease as the autoimmune system balances with the musculoskeletal and neurological systems.

Symptoms associated with Gastrointestinal conditions such as leaky gut can include:

Gastrointestinal Frequently Asked Questions

Several disorders share similar symptoms to Leaky Gut Syndrome. They include Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Depression, Type I Diabetes, and Cardiovascular Disease. Inflammatory Bowel Disorders such as Crohn’s Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Celiac Disease, and Ulcerative Colitis also share similar symptoms. Autism, Asthma, Obesity, and chronic allergies can share these symptoms as well. These symptoms are quite common with Autoimmune Diseases such as Lupus, Hypothyroidism, and Rheumatoid Arthritis as well as Neurological diseases and conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis and Guillain Barre.

Chiropractic adjustments are all about rebalancing and restoring normal function and motion. This allows the neurological system to do its job and send messages to the other systems unimpeded.

This condition is serious enough that no single fix will be efficient overnight. You may need to see your chiropractor regularly for a while before you are symptom-free. Once your system is back in balance, you will find that some of your other symptoms may disappear. While you probably will feel better, you need the additional treatments to ensure that you can stay that way.
