Functional Gastroenterology



Chronic digestive problems can be among the most difficult and uncomfortable health issues for a person to handle. Fortunately, naturopathic medicine excels at dealing with the most troubling gastrointestinal issues, especially those problems that often frustrate conventional doctors.

At SFNM, we are uniquely equipped to address acute and chronic digestive issues, ranging from Crohn's disease to acid reflux (GERD), Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) to Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO), food sensitivities/allergies and more.

Results for digestive disorders failed by conventional medical treatments

Many patients come to us after feeling failed by conventional medicine. They aren't provided with explanations. They experience uncomfortable side effects.

Worst of all, they find little or no relief from the symptoms that drove them to seek care in the first place, whether burning sensations/heartburn, bloating, acid reflux, diarrhea or constipation, pain, cramps, appetite loss and other distressing symptoms that can be frustrating and limiting to their lives.

It is important for you to know that when you have issues like these with your “gut,” your immune, nervous and hormonal systems will also be affected. That's where the special expertise of the naturopathic doctors at SFNM can help most.

Advanced testing to identify—and resolve—causes of chronic gastrointestinal issues

Resolving digestive problems means more than a quick fix to relieve a symptom. It means taking a holistic and comprehensive approach to healing your digestive system and promoting long-term digestive health.

Over time, we have developed a system of advanced tests to effectively pinpoint specific problem areas. These functional tests guide our natural therapeutic approaches to provide you with the most rapid—and lasting—results.

Using these functional tests, we can correctly identify the causes of your acute and chronic digestive problems. Armed with this information, we then carefully assess the overall role of digestion and absorption in your body and how they affect other health conditions you're experiencing.

While we are well known for our highly effective approach to identifying the causes of Irritable Bowel Syndrome and for dealing with IBS, we routinely achieve similarly successful results for those dealing with many different digestive issues

Whether you're dealing with gastritis, GERD, inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn's disease, constipation, gallstones and gall bladder disease, SIBO, food sensitivities, or other digestive problem—we can help.
