FOOD TROUBLES?-WE HAVE A PLAN AT TEXAS INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE

You may be suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Digestion problems like bloating, pain after eating, gas, burping, constipation and diarrhea are one of the main categories of symptoms suffered by almost all of us.  In addition to making us miserable, digestive disorders often trigger inflammation in our intestinal immune system which can lead to a host of other disorders including:Abdominal Discomfort

  • HEADACHES
  • ARTHRITIS
  • AUTOIMMUNE SYNDROMES
  • DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY
  • SLEEP DISORDER
  • ALLERGIES
  • IMMUNE DEFICIENCY

Disordered digestion often arises from one of three areas 1.effects of food toxins 2.allergies and intolerances to foods 3.bad effects of intestinal microbes.

Disorders of the digestive tract can lead to poor nutrient absorption, loss of vital nutrients, increased absorption and reduced clearance of toxic chemicals, and inflammation that can spread its effects throughout our bodies.

At Texas Integrative Medicine we have over twenty years of experience using a natural, holistic approach to understand the causes of each individual’s digestive problem and we institute personalized protocols to reverse the intestinal disorder in order to restore normal digestive function and end troublesome digestive symptoms.  We start with a very thorough history and physical and utilize individually selected diagnostic tests to diagnose the problem as cost-effectively as possible.  We then institute personalized protocols which may include diet modification, lifestyle modification, nutrient supplementation, and occasionally prescription medicine when deemed to be the best alternative.  This helps to end inflammation that contributes to systemic problems.  Our approach is compassionate and non-judgemental!                           Call 512-420-9300 to schedule your appointment to begin your journey toward digestive wellness.

Learn to Manage Stress to Realize True Health

In Part 1 of Stress and Chronic Illness I discussed some of the ways that sustained stress levels lead to inflammation and chemical imbalances that result in disease.  In Part 2 we will explore some strategies designed to eliminate stress and reverse some of the damaging effects on our bodies.

Here are eight strategies that have been successfully employed to relieve stress:

  • Reduce your exposure to media stress-Why worry about situations on the evening news that you cannot control?
  • Make it a priority to spend time for yourself-Take time to pursue  a hobby, enjoy nature, read a book, or meditate
  • Take time for regular physical exercise-The stress reducing benefits of vigorous physical activity are undeniable
  • Develop healthy sleep habits-Try to establish a consistent sleep routine and create a quiet, dark sleep environment
  • Learn to eat a healthy diet-Limit use of stimulants like caffeine and nicotine and avoid sugar and sweets
  • Practice self affirmations often-Learn to say positive and uplifting things to yourself-even out loud
  • Take time to listen to relaxing music and natural sounds-an environmental background sound CD can be great
  • Learn to set realistic expectations for your performance-most of us expect way too much perfection from self

Don’t forget that even if you can manage to lower your stress level even a little that the results to the health of your brain and body are often magnified.  You may find that the more you practice stress reduction, the easier it becomes.
