4R Digestion Program
Our “4R” program targets digestive concerns such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s Disease, Celiac Disease, Gastroesophageal Reflux Disorder (GERD), Ulcers and Diverticulitis. Whether you have a pre-diagnosed gastrointestinal disease, or if you haven’t yet received a diagnosis but know that your digestion is a problem, this systematic approach to correcting digestive dysfunction can help you. It’s called the “4R” program in reference to its four basic clinical steps:
Remove: assess and address the presence of food intolerances and/or overgrowth of unhealthy microorganisms in the digestive tract
Replace: determine what needs to be replaced to support healthy digestive function (ex. digestive enzymes, bile salts or stomach acid secretions)
Restore: reestablish a healthy balance of probiotics to nourish the lining of the digestive tract and support healthy immune and detoxification systems
Repair: regeneration of a healthy digestive tract using specific herbal medicines and nutrients
Please remember, these programs are not one size fits all. All of our programs act as a framework in which your care is individualized specifically for you.
