What is Ulcerative Colitis?
The Conventional Medicine Approach
Have you already seen your primary care doctor about your chronic gut issues, only to be given a prescription to deal with the symptoms and told to come back in 4 weeks if things aren’t better?
Perhaps you are dealing with regular bloating, acid reflux or GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), diarrhea, stomach cramps, or even fatigue and brain fog as well?
Most likely, your doctor recommended antacids (like Tums, Pepto-Bismol) or proton-pump inhibitors (PPIs) to deal with “overactive” stomach acid or some other medication to deal with the symptoms.
While some medicines may slightly ease symptoms in the short term, they can seriously harm you in the long term because you’ll never explore why you have bloating, diarrhea, or heartburn in the first place!
The problem with this is that there are so many reasons why you could experience chronic digestive distress. Unless you understand the actual root cause of what’s ultimately leading to the observed digestive symptoms, you don’t know how to fix it for good!
That’s why the conventional approach to chronic digestive disorders is frustrating for both practice members AND doctors.
Patients are unable to resolve their digestive issues because primary care doctors feel ill-equipped to identify the root cause of a patient’s gut problems.
The Functional Medicine Approach to Ulcerative Colitis
While the symptoms of hundreds of gut diseases are the same (bloating, gassiness, diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain), they may be caused by very different mechanisms that require a specialized approach.
That’s why it’s dangerous to mask the warning symptoms with over-the-counter remedies like antacids, laxatives, or antidiarrheals – without investigating the actual root causes. In the 1990s, we made incredible advances in understanding that our health is deeply linked to our microbiome. The microbiome is a collection of microbes that live on and inside the human body, including bacteria, fungi, protozoa, and viruses.
The bacteria in our gut microbiome help digest our food, protect our immune system, fight harmful bacteria or viruses, and produce essential nutrients like B12, thiamine (B1), and riboflavin.
They also produce essential neurotransmitters that allow for proper brain function. This is why people with poor gut health often report brain fog!
Unfortunately, these new advances in science take around 17 years to find their way into conventional doctor’s practices… so that’s why you may be better served by a functional medicine provider like our team at Functional Nutrition Resources.
