Occasional bloating is often a normal occurrence, but symptoms of bloating over long periods can be a huge problem. Dr. Wool can provide natural, holistic treatment for bloating by identifying the real cause.
Why Choose Naturopathy for your Bloating Symptoms?
Many of us can relate to bloating, but when it becomes a daily struggle, its discomfort is real, and its cause cannot be easily narrowed down. About 40% of people struggle with uncomfortable and frequent bloating. This bothersome, air-trapped feeling in the stomach can be a symptom of an underlying condition not diagnosed by your traditional doctor.
Bloating can be attributed to two overarching concerns: digestive problems and hormonal imbalances. Your digestive system is the foundation of your health, and the vitamins and nutrients we absorb through our digestive system are transformed into cells, energy and hormones required for bodily function.
A poorly functioning digestive system or an imbalanced hormone axis can be clues that your body needs extra support to maintain a healthy system. Long-term bloating can indicate chronic conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), leaky gut, and Crohn’s disease. However, medications often don’t address the root problem of gut health or hormonal problems, leaving the real cause a mystery to many patients. Through naturopathic treatment, bloating can be resolved by working with your system’s biology, controlling bloating at the source, and managing other related symptoms for life.
