Gastrointestinal Health

Digestion & Wellness Support

The gastrointestinal (GI) tract does a lot more than digest food. It's also a major contributor to a healthy immune system. Comprehensive Center for Women's Medicine offers advanced formulas to address GI function, microbial balance, and immune function.

A More Complete Approach to GI Support

Many programs address only one aspect of gastrointestinal health. For true GI support, we recommend a 4-phase approach that's not just easy to remember--it's easy to swallow!

4-Phase Approach to Better GI Outcomes

Removing offending substances from the diet.
Food allergens and other materials can negatively influence the intestinal environment and cause localized irritation or trigger the release of damaging chemicals into general circulation, affecting other tissues and organs. We offer a variety of metabolic detoxification programs to aid with this phase.

Replacing digestive enzymes and stomach acid where necessary.

Digestive factors and enzymes that help break down food commonly decline with age. This inhibits digestion and nutrient utilization, as well as the elimination of waste.

Re-inoculating the bowel with pre- and probiotics.

Reintroducing health-promoting "friendly" bacteria such as Lactobacillus acidophilus NCFM® helps maintain a desirable balance of GI micro flora--critical to intestinal tissue (mucosal) health, immune function, intestinal barrier function and digestion.

Regenerating the GI mucosa through proper nutritional support.

GI mucosal cell regeneration is a natural process that can be supported by targeted nutrition.
