Naturopathic doctors focus heavily on digestive health, even if digestive issues are not a primary complaint. Research has shown that much of our immune system exists within our gastrointestinal tract, and that our digestive tract is also closely associated with our central nervous system, which means what we eat can affect our mood, mental focus, and cognitive health!
So whether you have already been diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) or whether you are simply fed up with feeling tired, anxious, and depressed, NDs always spend time making sure your digestion and absorption of nutrients are functioning optimally.
But everyone is different, so at Ray Of Light Healing, you won't get the same dietary protocol and the same list of supplements as the person before you, even if you both walked in with the same symptoms. During your visits, we will take time to investigate what foods are the best for you and what you should avoid, whether you have underlying food sensitivities or need a general detox, whether you need probiotics or digestive enzymes, and whether you need soothing herbs or healing amino acids. Sometimes this takes a little investigative work, and healing the digestive tract fully always takes time. But starting with the right foods, you will be on your way to feeling your best!
