Digestive problems are among the most common among people in all age groups. Suffering from bouts of constipation or diarrhea, feeling bloated after a meal, or experiencing heartburn after eating certain foods are symptoms that may indicate a problem with the digestive tract.
The digestive tract is the largest organ in the body, and it can get infected by harmful bacteria or other problems. If problems of the digestive tract are ignored, they may lead to severe conditions such as Crohn’s disease, Hashimoto’s disease, Celiac disease, or rheumatoid arthritis.
Compounding pharmacy offers safe and effective solutions to build a robust and healthy digestive tract and address the common problems related with it. American Integrative Pharmacy (AIP), led by the dedicated and sagacious Dr. Neema Yazdanpanah, provides compounded medications to patients in Long Beach, Torrance, Los Angeles, South Bay Orange County, Southern California areas, and nationwide.
Vital Role of the Digestive Tract
The digestive tract has a vital role to play within the immune system, which is necessary to counter the invasion of viruses, bacteria, parasites and fungi. Nearly two-thirds of the immune system for fighting off disease is constituted of the digestive health. If the digestive health is poor, it will not only reduce the body’s ability to fight disease, but it may also impact the metabolic function, which is necessary to maintain a healthy weight.
The digestive system is also responsible for the absorption of vitamins and other nutrients, which are needed by the body to preserve optimal health. There is also an increasing body of scientific evidence that suggests that the digestive system has a role to play in an individual’s ability to manage stress and balance the moods, and is related to obesity, cholesterol levels, and heart dysfunction.
Sustainable treatments in integrative pharmacy are available to address digestive problems. In many cases, conventional medication may only offer temporary relief, but not a permanent riddance from persistent digestive problems. This is where compounding pharmacy treatment approaches can play a vital role and focus on the underlying cause to restore the health of the digestive tract.
Treatment approaches in compounding pharmacy for problems of the digestive tract may include supplements, dietary changes and targeted digestive aids.
An experienced integrative pharmacist will focus on the specific cause of the digestive problem and offer a customized solution that is uniquely created to address the specific condition of the patient. This enables the pharmacist to achieve targeted outcomes without causing any significant or long term side effects.
If the compounding pharmacist identifies decreased levels of vitamins A, D, B6, as well as, minerals such as zinc, selenium, potassium, iron and iodine, they will provide solutions to correct these levels and improve the digestive system. In some cases, digestion process may be affected due to thyroid dysfunction if the T3 or T4 thyroid hormones are compromised.
Corrective hormonal therapy may be provided in such cases to restore digestive health.
