Most cases of IBD are associated with an imbalance of the microbes in the gut. Correcting this imbalance with natural microbes can have a profound effect on symptoms and recovery. Probiotics (friendly microbes) are a cornerstone of effective treatment, but there are many essential nutrients that support the natural healing process of the intestinal tract that are also valuable. This can be done in combination with drug treatment that may be necessary.
Dr. Saputo's Inflammatory Bowel Disease Health Assessment will assess your symptoms, the drugs and supplements you're using, the workup that has been done to manage IBD, and the extent of anxiety or depression you may be suffering from. Natural treatments are offered that can lower or sometimes even eliminate the need for pharmaceutical drugs.
