           "The digestive system, or gastrointestinal (GI) tract, is a very complex machine requiring many different organs to work together in concert.  The ultimate job of the GI tract is to absorb or admit the nutrients necessary to keep the body healthy, while at the same time rejecting or dispelling those substances that are toxic.  To accomplish this important job, the membrane that lines the entire GI tract acts as a selective barrier-essentially taking in what is "good" and rejecting that which is "bad."  There are three key steps to the digestive process: absorption, assimilation and elimination." If there is a problem with any part of this process, the symptoms of illness and disease began to form.

    Stomach cramps, parasites (worms), bad bacteria, stomach ulcers, viruses, and hernias are all common to both men and women.  Furthermore, more recently, children are having a higher incidence in leaky gut, downsingdrom, and even chromes disease.  All of these stomach related issues are very uncomfortable and the effects may tend to worsen with each passing day.  Medications and surgery may provide short-term relief, but there is nothing like healing the body form the inside-out, to help eliminate pain and dramatically reduce the foundamental cause.

    Once we have worked with you, with our initial consultation, you will see that there is hope.  You don't have to be constantly reminded with pain spasms in your stomach.  Be free to movewithout any thought or worries.  Your abdomen (abs), and surrounding areas can feel wonderful, as you feel the symptoms and possibly the root causes, fade away.

    Here's just a small list of stomach issues which may be treated:

    ℑ   Abdominal Pain

    ℑ   Celiac Disease

    ℑ   Constipation

    ℑ   Diarrhea
    ℑ   Gallbladder Disease

    ℑ   Gas and/or Bloating

    ℑ   Gastritis

    ℑ   Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)
    ℑ   GI Tract Infections

    ℑ   Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis)

    ℑ   Leaky Gut Syndrome

    ℑ   Pancreatitis

    ℑ   Ulcers
    Abdominal Pain

    "can vary in its location, frequency and intensity with any kind of GI disorder. What is important to know is that certain kinds of abdominal pain, such as that described for pancreatitis, may signal a serious problem."

    Thanks to:   Womens International        

    Celiac Disease

    "In those with a genetic predisposition, this inflammatory disorder of the small intestine is triggered by exposure to gluten (wheat protein). This condition results in a malabsorption of nutrients; those affected may develop anemia due to a lack of iron, folate, and/or vitamin B12; or osteoporosis due to inadequate absorption of calcium and vitamin D. Celiac disease can lead to fertility problems in women if left untreated. Gas, abdominal cramping, weight loss, canker sores, fatigue and anemia all suggest difficulty digesting gluten and are common symptoms."

    "refers to infrequent or incomplete bowel movements, often characterized by stools that are hard and difficult to pass due to slow transit time through the GI tract. Usually this is caused by insufficient dietary fiber, excessive dietary fat and or refined foods, side-effects of some medications, lack of exercise, dehydration or hormonal changes."

    Thanks to:   Womens International        


    "is the frequent passage of watery stools and is most often caused by intestinal irritation, incomplete digestion of food, use of certain drugs, food poisoning or food allergies."

    Thanks to:   Womens International        

    Gallbladder Disease

    "Gallbladder problems typically stem from inflammation, swollen ducts that restrict bile flow,or gallstones that block bile flow. A sedentary lifestyle, being overweight, and skipping meals are common factors in those with gallbladder problems. Food allergies can also trigger inflammation. Symptoms include indigestion, chronic gas, bloating, fatigue, and anxiety in chronic cases; and severe pain, nausea, and vomiting in an acute gallbladder attack."

    Thanks to:   Womens International        

    Gas and/or Bloating

    "occurs when there is excessive gas in the stomach and intestines (also called flatulence) and can be a sign of incomplete digestion. Three major sources of gas in the GI tract are gas swallowed from the air, gas formed by a chemical reaction of hydrochloric acid from the stomach and pancreatic secretions, and gases formed through bacterial fermentation in the colon. Those who are lactose intolerant or overly sensitive to foods such as legumes and cruciferous vegetables may experience increased gas production."

    "Gastritis is an inflammation of the lining of the stomach that involves erosion of the upper-most mucosal layer. While many types of gastritis cause no symptoms, those that do can result in heartburn, pain in the upper abdomen, nausea, and vomiting."

    Thanks to:   Womens International        

    Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)

    "Often referred to as heartburn, this condition occurs when partially digested food from the stomach, along with hydrochloric acid (HCl) and enzymes, backs up into the esophagus (a process also known as reflux).The acidity of HCl can cause damage when it comes into contact with the delicate lining of the esophagus. Reflux (or regurgitation), chest pain, and difficulty swallowing are some of the most common symptoms of GERD."

    Thanks to:   Womens International        

    GI Tract Infections

    "Although parasites, bacteria, viruses, fungi, worms and protozoa are ubiquitous, some can wreak havoc when infecting the GI tract. Some organisms can provoke hormone changes by binding estrogen, thus making it unavailable, while others can actually produce hormones leading to excess levels. Infections can cause a wide range of symptoms including diarrhea, cramps, gas and fatigue."   AND EVEN MORE ISSUES. . .

    Thanks to:   Womens International        

    Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis)

    "Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is another catch-all term for chronic inflammation in the intestines. Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis are two forms of IBD, both of which are potentially serious and can lead to malnutrition. In Crohn's Disease, ulcerations occur along the small or large intestines, and the bowel wall thickens causing the GI tract to narrow, with all layers of affected tissue going through cycles of inflammation, damage and healing. The most common symptom is diarrhea. Ulcerative Colitis is a chronic inflammation of the large intestine. Symptoms include abdominal pain, diarrhea and rectal bleeding. Both diseases can cycle through periods of remission and flare-ups"   AND EVEN MORE ISSUES. . .

    Thanks to:   Womens International        

    Leaky Gut Syndrome

    "The leaking of the gut wall through the gut lining can be triggered by a number of factors including food allergies, alcoholism, radiation, chemotherapy, infections and severe trauma. This compromises the barrier function of the digestive tract so that toxins and bacteria can seep into the bloodstream and be passed along to the liver. While common symptoms include vitamin deficiencies, gas, cramping, fatigue and poor concentration, development of an autoimmune disease, including allergies, may also be a sign of leaky gut syndrome."   AND EVEN MORE ISSUES. . .

    Thanks to:   Womens International        


    "Inflammation of the pancreas usually results from the blockage of the ducts of the pancreas, and can be caused by alcohol abuse, viral infection, or when gallstones become trapped in the ducts. The most classic symptom of acute pancreatitis is pain above the navel that spreads across the abdomen and to the back. Other symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, fever and weakness."   AND EVEN MORE ISSUES. . .

    Thanks to:   Womens International        


    "Ulcers are sores or lesions that develop in the mucus lining of the stomach. Once believed that stress was the major cause of peptic ulcers, most are associated with the presence of a bacterium called Helicobacter pylori between the lining of the stomach and the protective mucous layer. Common symptoms include severe pain (often worse between meals and at night) and black, tarry stools, which indicate internal bleeding."   AND EVEN MORE ISSUES. . .

    (NEXIUM, Aspirin, Advil, Motrin, Losec, Pariet, Pantoloc, sedatives, etc.)

    which may cause . . .

        Hypoacidity:   Insufficient amounts of Hydrochloric Acid in Stomach
                (Acid Reflux, Leaky Gut, Decrease in Stomach Mucus, etc.)

        Hyperacidity:   Excessive amounts of Hydrochloric Acid in Stomach
                (Anxiety, Bacteria Helicobacter Pylori (O'Clock. Pylori), Ulcers, etc.)

        Internal Tube / Wall Damage:
                (Frequent consumption of beer, wine, sodas, coffee, spicy or acidic foods, etc.)

    * Hydrochloric Acid is a key function to digestion of food and is
    one of the firstline-of-defense against pathogens and toxins in the body. *

    Finding natural long term solutions may be more prudent than
    resorting to medications and surgeries.
