Celiac Disease -Restoring the Gut
Celiac Disease is now considered the most common and underdiagnosed life-long disease in our country. With such a need for awareness in this area, the team at Wellness Doctor spends a great amount of time and effort educating the public and other healthcare practitioners of the significance of gluten related disorders such as non-Celiac gluten sensitivity. When it comes to educating the public, it is vital to understand the importance of avoiding gluten (found in wheat, barely, and rye) in those diagnosed as well as the crucial health benefits that come with testing each patient who displays a suspected sensitivity.
While a gluten-free diet is key in extinguishing the internal fire often caused by a gluten-related disorder, this is only the first step when it comes to healing the body. The gluten-free diet will help to put out that internal fire, but additional supplementation is required to actually heal the tissues and organs that have been damaged by ongoing gluten exposure. Furthermore, there is often other concerns with those who are diagnosed with Celiac such as other autoimmune conditions, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), motility issues, food allergies and sensitivities, and nutritional deficiencies.
While we offer testing to help diagnose Celiac disease and non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity, we also offer very comprehensive stool testing to address any other functional GI issues which may slow the healing process and organic acid testing for addressing nutritional deficiencies and other crucial metabolic processes.
Wellness Doctor offers helpful clinical-grade supplements which can be purchased in our office or through our Online Store!
