When you have stomach issues, it can sometimes be hard to pinpoint the cause. For many people, going to the doctors to medications prescribed is not the number one choice. If you like to take the natural approach whenever possible, you can visit a trained naturopath for leaky gut syndrome treatment in San Diego.
To get right to the point, leaky gut is what people use to describe increased permeability in the intestines. This condition is whenever the gaps of the intestinal walls start to loosen up, thus allowing substances like toxins, bacteria, and undigested food particles to get through and into the bloodstream. There could be several different autoimmune and chronic diseases that lead to leaky gut syndrome, including celiac disease and type 1 diabetes.
When it comes to treatment options, there are many things that you can work on that may improve your overall digestive health. For example, having a diet that is rich in foods that help to boost beneficial bacteria in the gut is a great place to start. Some of the foods that your naturopath might suggest include:
Tubers/roots: including yams, potatoes, squash, carrots, turnips, and sweet potatoes
Veggies: including kale, beetroot, ginger, zucchini, mushrooms, cabbage, brussels sprouts, broccoli, and arugula
Fruits: including blueberries, strawberries, pineapple, limes, papaya, grapes, bananas, and coconut
Healthy fats: including coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil, and avocado oil
Fish: including herring, salmon, and tuna
Along with these and other healthful foods to try, it is always a good idea to avoid too many processed foods, sauces, alcoholic beverages, baked goods, and anything overly sugared or salty.
Dr. Dubroff at Holistic Solutions can set up a time for an initial consultation so that you can come in and discuss your digestive concerns. You may benefit from stress-reduction techniques, probiotics, more sleep, and other treatment options.
