IWG's Approach to
Digestive

“My son can actually have a normal life.  No more packing a diaper bag for a 10 year old.”

Hear from one of our patients

The patient was diagnosed at 5 years of age with Irritable Bowel and Ulcerative Colitis after experiencing abdominal discomfort and irregular stools.  The start was after having clams at a restaurant and experiencing diarrhea and vomiting the following day.  The patient also experienced blood in their stool.  A colonoscopy and endoscopy was completed by the gastroenterologist showing inflammation but no sign of cancer or diverticulitis.  The patient was recommended to go on Remicade which is a low dose of chemotherapy to suppress his immune system and “manage” the condition.  The patient’s symptoms did not improve for 5 years on the treatment.

IWG’s custom approach

The patient was recommended to eliminate gluten, dairy (with the exception of goat products), other grains, and limit sugar.  He was placed on a whole food organic diet.  He was also recommended antibacterial and antimicrobial supplements to combat the bacterial infection in the gut.  In 4 weeks the patient was feeling 50% improvement.   The patient had formed stools, no blood or mucus present in the stool.  He experienced better mood, decreased abdominal pain, and better quality of life.

What we found to be the root cause

IWG performed a three day stool analysis on the patient in addition to blood work and a hair analysis.  The stool analysis showed 3 strains of bacteria, one of the strains is known to be fatal in 60% of children who have it.   The stool also showed that there was “no growth” for any of the beneficial probiotics in the gut.  The hair analysis showed heavy metal toxicity in the patient, particularly mercury and aluminum.  The blood work showed a depressed immune system with bacterial infection and severe food allergies.

FUN FACT:

Stool analysis often miss parasitic infections.  Parasites will self destruct 20 minutes after a bowel movement leaves the body.  IWG offers additional testing to make sure we diagnose parasites appropriately.

1 Month results:

The patient had 90% improvement in symptoms.  The y were much more talkative and vibrant  and reported

  • no abdominal pain
  • no bloating
  • no gas
  • ability to form bowel movements

3 month results:

The patient decreased from 6-8 loose bowel movements per day to 2-3 formed bowel movements with no blood or mucus.   The patient still had some inflammatory markers elevated so we did additional testing for parasites.  

6 month results:

The patient completed a 4 month parasite cleanse with detox foot baths.

12 Month Results:

The stool analysis also showed up clear for any pathogens and the gut inflammation via stool analysis and  on colonoscopy.  

Integrative Medicine is the Evolution of Medicine

Let’s be honest, Medicine needs a face lift.  Our goal at IWG is to evolve medicine to be comprehensive, specific, and integrative.  It starts with looking at the whole person and the whole picture.  The measuring of someones physical stress, internal (biochemical) stress, their emotional and energetic stress allows you to provide the proper diagnosis and the most tailored approach to their health care.  The understanding of the integration of our mental state, our physical symptoms, and our internal environment allows for true and sustainable healing.
