Digestive Health

If you answered YES to any of these questions, it may be a good time to speak with your regulated health care provider to talk about how to assess your digestive symptoms and explore different ways to improve your body’s digestive tract function.

Although you may currently be managing your digestive symptoms, prolonged symptoms can be a sign your digestive system needs more support.  Food intolerances, dietary choices, mealtime habits, nutrient deficiencies, bacteria/yeast/parasite infections, low stomach acid, low digestive enzyme/bile production, low levels of healthy gut bacteria, increased inflammation, intestinal permeability issues and chronic stress can all be affecting your digestion. 

Our naturopathic doctors at Bright Moon Wellness have the tools to evaluate and restore digestive tract function. They offer a holistic health assessment of your mind, body and spirit to address the root cause and underlying factors contributing to your gut issues. Naturopathic doctors are also trained to recognize serious red flag symptoms which require immediate attention and referral to your medical doctor for further investigation.
