How to Heal Naturally From Stomach Problems
Stomach problems are one of the most common health issues people suffer from today, affecting millions of people all over the world. If you suffer from any type of stomach problem, you know just how much it can negatively impact your daily life. Someone who suffers from ongoing stomach problems will often experience:
- Feeling sluggish or lack of energy
- Frequent anxiety especially around situations that involve eating at a restaurant or public setting, social events, and using public transportation
- Inability to focus at work or school due to symptoms
- Lack of confidence because of feeling bloating often
- Trouble sleeping due to stomach upset or pain keeping you up
- Fear of eating as you’re unsure what is safe to eat and what foods might trigger flare-ups
- Loss of enjoyment in life and activities you typically enjoy
Commonly diagnosed stomach problems
Some of the most commonly diagnosed stomach issues are Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) or acid reflux, Ulcerative Colitis, Chron’s Disease, Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO), chronic constipation, gallstones, food sensitivities, and peptic ulcers.
Most people diagnosed with these health conditions will see a conventional doctor who will prescribe medications such as antacids, acid reducers, acid blockers, or proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) to try and manage the issue. While these medications can temporarily provide relief, unfortunately, they only treat and cover up symptoms rather than addressing the root cause of the problem. That’s why people who go on these medications don’t ever truly feel better and end up relying on them long-term or even for life; not to mention these medications come with tons of negative side effects, including the fact that long-term use can worsen the problem.
Healing naturally from stomach problems
What conventional doctors don’t tell you is that a healthy diet and lifestyle are one of the best natural treatments for healing mild to chronic stomach issues. This is because stomach problems actually stem from an unhealthy diet and lifestyle. The top causes of stomach problems are:
- Diets high in processed foods and carbohydrates
- Nutrient deficiencies
- Chronic, unmanaged stress
- Excess alcohol consumption
- Food allergies
- Overuse of medications such as antibiotics, pain relievers, acid reducers or blockers, and steroids
While simple diet and lifestyle changes can help you heal naturally from stomach problems, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to health and nutrition. This can make it difficult to find what works specifically for you and your needs. People tend to run from doctor to doctor or try a variety of diets and then give up after just a short amount of time because they don’t feel better. That’s where Nutritional Therapy can help.
Nutritional Therapy takes the guesswork out of figuring out what protocol will help each person heal by taking into account bio-individuality including, health concerns, goals, history, needs, lifestyle, environment, and anything else specific to that person and their current circumstances. Unlike typical nutritionists who look solely at a person’s diet, Nutritional Therapy Practitioners carry out a comprehensive analysis of each client’s health history, dietary habits, and lifestyle in order to uncover the root cause of his or her health issues. A Nutritional Therapist will then recommend specific dietary and lifestyle changes in addition to supportive nutrients or supplements that can speed up the healing process.
Nutritional Therapy has the ability to create lasting health and wellness by addressing the root cause rather than cover up symptoms so you can get out of the ongoing cycle of issues you’re suffering from. By focusing on implementing simple dietary and lifestyle changes specific to you, Nutritional Therapy can address dysfunction, bring the body back into balance, and “reverse” stomach problems so you can get back to enjoying life.
