Celiac Disease, Digestion & Immune Health in Redmond

Chiropractic Redmond WA Celiac Disease Help

Do you suffer from Celiac Disease in Redmond?

If so, you’ve probably already visited doctor after doctor trying to get answers. Eventually, someone performed a blood test, a stool test, or a biopsy and figured it out. However, you may have started out with a random set of serious symptoms. Of course, these complaints range from mental fatigue or brain fog to lack of energy. In fact, they can even include loss of appetite, diarrhea, and unexplained weight loss (Merck Manual).

If left untreated, celiac disease can lead to more serious problems such as Anemia, swelling of the tongue or mouth, and even ulcers of the stomach or skin. This disease can also lead to loss of vitamin D and calcium, which can cause weak bones and even osteoporosis. More surprisingly, it can also cause infertility in both men and women. The most common cause is gluten intolerance. This can happen due to an overactive immune system. Why? Basically, gluten causes damage to your digestive lining. This damage causes both chemical and physical stress. This stress ruins the lining in your small intestines. Your body responds by shifting your immune system into overdrive (Merck Manual). As a result, it can even mimic an infection. See how a Redmond chiropractor help.


The Medical Approach

Perhaps the most interesting fact about celiac disease is the medical approach. According to the Merck Manual, medical treatment for celiac includes two parts. Are you ready for this? For once it recommends both dietary changes and supplements. And of course, the dietary changes usually include a gluten-free diet. However, you have to be extremely careful when you go gluten-free you have to be extremely careful. Why? Many gluten-free foods are much higher in sugar. What does this mean? It means you have a higher risk of weight gain and type 2 diabetes.


Our Approach

A healthy digestive tract is a direct result of two key pieces. What are they? They are your digestive and immune systems. And while I don’t diagnose or treat any disease (including celiac disease), our office can help support healthy digestive and immune function. In fact, I provide this support with a specific plan. And this plan usually includes custom dietary changes along with the correct enzyme supplements. Of course, we design our dietary changes to maintain a healthy sugar load. Lastly, I only make recommendations after scientific testing based on sound medical principles.

Are you concerned about healthy digestion? Or perhaps you're worried about your immune health. Are you missing out on work, family, or fun? Do you suffer from a random set of unexplained ailments? If so, give us a call and set up a consultation. I will personally sit down with you and talk with you about your suffering and how it affects your life. I will even do some preliminary testing as well as Bio Impedance Analysis (BIA). In fact, did you know that both NASA and Cancer Treatment Centers of America rely on BIA as part of their practice?
