DIGESTIVE HEALTH AND DETOXIFICATION: MICROBIOME MEDICINE


Gastrointestinal complaints are among the most common in medical care, with symptoms ranging from diarrhea, constipation, bloating and indigestion to irritable bowel syndrome and malabsorption. There are emerging problems with parasitic infections. In medical programs, there is very little information during their training on parasitology. Given the lack of information and minimal clinical exposure, medical providers don’t consider parasites as a possible cause of illness.

At Monarch Integrative Health, we believe digestive health starts in the mouth. We look at dental health: mercury and heavy metal toxicity, use of sealants, amalgams, composites varnishes cements, pastes etc. The importance of the GUT-BRAIN connection and a healthy microbiome with the balance of good bacteria is a priority at Monarch Integrative Health.

We test comprehensive panels that reveal bacteria, yeast and parasites. For insight into degenerative disease, we look at digestive and absorption markers, and inflammation. We develop individual detoxification programs based on symptoms and testing s to clear the liver and give the digestive system a much-needed rest. Doing a detox is like rebooting a sluggish computer or emptying the trash that is taking up a huge amount of memory.
