Digestion problems are common among people in all age groups. The typical problem can be feeling bloated after a meal, experiencing heartburn after eating certain foods, or suffering from bouts of constipation or diarrhea. These symptoms may be indicative of a problem within the digestive tract, which is one of the largest body organs.
If not treated effectively, digestive problems may lead to serious conditions such as Crohn’s disease, Hashimoto’s disease, Celiac disease, or Rheumatoid Arthritis. Often digestive issues get ignored until severe symptoms appear. The digestive tract plays a key role within the immune system and helps to fight off disease. Poor digestion diminishes this ability, and also impacts the metabolic function needed to maintain a healthy weight.
American Integrative Pharmacy (AIP) is one of the leading names in compounding pharmacy, which offers advanced and innovative solutions for a wide range of health problems. AIP offers probiotics and supplements for inflammation to treat digestive problems for patients in Long Beach, Torrance, Los Angeles, South Bay Orange County, Southern California areas, and across the entire country.
Digestive problems can be treated in a safe and effective manner with simple solutions in integrative pharmacy. These treatments may include compounded supplements and digestive aids and are usually combined with healthy dietary changes. Probiotics and supplements for inflammation can successfully treat a host of digestive problems, particularly when it is combined with a scientifically managed balanced diet.
Digestion process may also be affected due to thyroid dysfunction when the T3 or T4 hormones are compromised. These hormones influence the metabolic rate and support the protection of the intestinal lining. Compounding pharmacy bioidentical hormone therapies can help to regulate the thyroid levels, which will eventually improve the digestive condition as well.
It is important to understand the underlying causes of digestive problems in order to have the appropriate treatment. These problems typically occur when the microflora in the intestinal lining is invaded by harmful bacteria or viruses. Microflora fights these unhealthy invasions, but sub-optimal levels of microflora can result in the immune system getting compromised and lead to metabolic and digestive problems.
Role of Diet
An experienced compounding pharmacist and physician will emphasize on the role of diet in improving digestion. The intake of sugars and processed foods must be reduced in the diet because these can cause a PH change within the intestine, leading to a reduction in the microflora production.
This reduction may cause a ‘leaky gut syndrome’ because of the weakened and thinning state of the lining. As a result, the digestive system can become prone to sensitivities, food allergies, inflammation, and eczema. It may also lead to a reduced absorption of vital nutrients such as A, D, B6, as well as, minerals such as zinc, selenium, potassium, iron, and iodine.
Compounded medications along with a carefully managed diet program can help to improve digestive condition in many patients, especially when the problem is treated early. AIP offers both traditional and modern compounding solutions, including online prescription refills, to patients in Long Beach, Torrance, Los Angeles, South Bay Orange County, Southern California areas, and nationwide.
