Improving Gastro-Intestinal Health

Many people complain of gastro-intestinal issues that cannot be identified with conventional “check-up” laboratory and medical exams. One or more underlying imbalance may be involved, some of the most common being: Hypo or hyperchlorhydria (low or high gastric acid production); Sub-optimal enzyme secretion, either from the pancreas and/ or the villi in the small intestine (e.g. lactase required for the digestion of dairy foods); Problems with bile synthesis or normal flow; Dysbiosis (an imbalance of the intestinal microflora), which can include yeast or bacterial overgrowth, parasitic infections and/or undergrowth of friendly bacteria; Intestinal permeability, commonly known as “leaky gut”.
