I have a great appreciation for the broad category of disease related to the digestive system from my study with the Loomis Institute of Enzyme Nutrition and certification as a Digestive Health Specialist. The digestive system is a long twisting tube that begins in the mouth and ends at the anus, encompassing the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, rectum, and anus. The liver, pancreas, and gall bladder are also considered part of this complex system designed to break down food and deliver its nutrients into circulation. I like to think of the digestive system as the portal of entry for our body, and for that reason, its health is integral to the health of our body in general. If the digestive system fails, the rest of the body will likely fail to provide optimal energy or function. The digestive system is also referred to as the gut, and it amazingly contains about 80% of our immune system. On top of that, the gut is the location of more neurological tissue than the brain itself. This is where the expression “gut feeling” or “butterflies in my stomach” originated.

For all of its relevance, the gut is often misunderstood, underappreciated, and rarely spoken of, often due to the nature of the embarrassing conversation that can arise from it.

What impacts gut health?

There are a multitude of factors that impact gut health. A few of them are:
*Poor diet (the SAD Standard American Diet)
*Chronic medication use, in particular NSAIDs and Antibiotics
*Stress, both acute and chronic
*Infection

And an even broader array of symptoms that may accompany or give clues to poor gut function. Here is a short list.
*Belching
*Reflux
*Hernia
*Gas
*Bloating
*Constipation
*Diarrhea
*Irritable bowel
*Low Energy
*Depression
*Mental Fog
*Poor Immunity

Again, can you see the broad implications that this system can also have on your body? Unfortunately, these symptoms often fall under the radar or go untreated for many years. Clients either believe they are normal (since so many of their friends have the same), are too embarrassed to address it, or treat it medically in a way that does not optimize its health.

Medical management vs. RNH functional management

The medical management of digestive disorders is to treat the symptoms that accompany it. Unfortunately, providing a pharmaceutical intervention for any number of gut disorders fails to resolve the problem, and it often leaves a more systemic problem unchecked. If the gut becomes “leaky” to large undigested particles due to its weakened state, a whole array of health problems can take hold.

The RNH functional model, on the other hand, seeks to find out WHY the gut is unhealthy and take natural measures to restore normal function. Urine, stool, blood, symptom, and history analysis are all key contributors in a functional model to isolate the cause of gut dysfunction. Very often, optimizing the health of the gut is a KEY contributor for anyone looking to recover or optimize health! Proper diet, key targeted nutrients, and stress management, can help to restore the integrity of this very important system of our body.
