For more complex IBS & Digestion cases our clinic offers:
Comprehensive Digestive Analysis testing which allows our Naturopaths to look at numerous digestive parameters and analyze the gut microbiome including:
Beneficial bacteria & Dysbiotic (Pathogenic) bacteria - These tests include bacterial cultures that allows our Naturopathic Doctors to quantitatively measure "good bacteria" as well as "bad bacteria."
Many times our Naturopaths have seen insufficient growth of particular beneficial bacterial strains or overgrowths of pathogenic strains causing an array of IBS symptoms.
The sensitivity portion of the test is an amazing benefit as we can find out precisely the natural or antibiotic agents needed to kill pathogenic bacteria causing your digestive symptoms. The bacterial culture allows us to find H2S species in our patients as well.
Beneficial & Dysbiotic (Pathogenic) yeast & parasites - These tests also include yeast cultures that lets our Naturopaths to quantitatively measure "good yeast" as well as "bad yeast."
Many times our Naturopaths have seen excessive growth of yeast strains such as Candida Albicans causing an array of IBS & Digestive symptoms.
As with bacteria, the sensitivity portion of the test allows us to find the natural or antifungal agents needed to kill pathogenic yeast causing your digestive symptoms.
Testing usually includes yeast microscopy which is excellent for detecting yeast higher up in the digestive tract.
This lets us know if there is insufficient stomach acid, liver or pancreatic function and if your digestion would benefit from particular enzyme or acid preparations.
Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth - is a common cause of IBS and IBS type symptoms.
Our Naturopaths have a lot of experience assessing and treating SIBO as a cause of IBS, Gas, Bloating, Diarrhea and Constipation.
Hydrogen sulfide SIBO "H2S" can be diagnosed through clinical history or stool culture.
Our Naturopaths have a preference for herbal treatments (berberine, oregano or allicin) as the SIBO relapse rate is lower with herbal treatments.
If needed, your TruMed Naturopath will refer you for antibiotic treatments (Rifaximin or Flagyl or Neomycin).
SIBO treatment is usually combined with a BioFilm agent and Prokinetic agent for better kills and reducing relapse risk respectively.
Our SIBO diagnosis is usually done with Genova Diagnostics SIBO Test as a three hour breath test.
At our Naturopathic clinic we've used IV Therapy to improve energy, mood, cognitive function and immunity in patients with digestive issues.
IBS, IBD (Crohn's & Colitis), Celiac disease and other conditions where absorption has been compromised can respond well to IV Therapy.
IV Therapy allows our Naturopathic doctors to bypass the digestive tract and ensure 100% absorption of vitamins and minerals.
This allows us to enhance nutrient levels in those with historically poor assimilation.
The result? We've seen tremendous enhancement of energy, mood and cognition in many of our Edmonton patients with digestive issues, often times immediately after the first treatment.
Usually patients need a few treatments in a row on a weekly basis to build a sustained level of nutrients.
We can often get patients feeling better than they have in years simply by enhancing their nutritional status.
For instance, Zinc, Magnesium, Folate, B12, B1, B3 & B6 are often found to be low in Crohn's disease which are easily repleted at our Edmonton office with IV Therapy.
Naturally, all digestive concerned associated with oral intake of nutrients is completely avoided with IV Therapy. For instance, bowel related side effects associated with excess magnesium and vitamin C are not seen when IV therapy is used.
Also, we are able to frequently used much higher doses intravenously than what is used orally to allow for faster intracellular repletion.
