Whether you suffer from mild or chronic digestive issues, the clinicians in Bastyr Center’s Digestive Wellness appointments aim to diagnose the underlying issues to help you heal.
Your digestive health is often reflective of your overall health, so your care team is focused not only on helping you feel better, but also on treating the cause of your gas, bloating, diarrhea, abdominal pain and other symptoms.
Many patients end up visiting Digestive Wellness after other treatments have failed to help them long-term, including Ellen, who suffered symptoms for years before being diagnosed and treated for small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) at Bastyr Center for Natural Health.
SIBO and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) are among some of the more common diagnoses treated in Digestive Wellness appointments, but patients with any digestive complaints may request an appointment for more specialized treatment.
Clinicians from different departments will coordinate care to make sure you are receiving the best possible treatment, whether that means acupuncture, naturopathic medicine, counseling or nutrition.
