Gut Health Support

Digestive Health Issues Can Be Complicated.

At BioEnergetic Nutrition we take deeper look behind what’s going on with your gut issues. We work with conditions such as:

  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Gas
  • Bloating
  • IBS
  • IBD
  • Food Allergies
  • Crohn’s
  • Colitis
  • Cramping
  • Heartburn / GERD
  • Acid Reflux
  • Celiac Disease
  • Food Sensitivities


The first and most obvious thing to look at is diet. What we eat and drink has a direct and powerful affect on your gut health. We will take a close look at your current diet along with your symptoms and lab testing results to look for connections between the foods you are eating and your symptoms.

Food allergies and Food sensitivities are different types of reactions. Food Allergies can be severe and are typically limited to affecting the airways, skin and digestive tract. Food sensitivities are harder to identify and can quietly create inflammation anywhere in the body. Not just in the gut. If we suspect food allergies or food sensitivities are an issue for you, we can adjust your diet accordingly to test our theory, or we can do some Laboratory Testing to identify specific foods and food groups that may be contributing to inflammation in your body.

Digestive Function

The Assessment Process is designed to identify areas in your digestive processes that may not be functioning optimally. When there is a problem with digestive function, we can have a harder time digesting even our healthiest foods. Digestion is a symphony of mechanical actions, various hormonal signals, fluid secretions, microbial actions, etc… all working together to break down our food into small enough molecules that our bodies can absorb. We’ll look into things like motility, stomach acid, enzyme production, bile production and flow etc… Poor digestion can lead to a multitude of problems including Food Allergies and Food Sensitivities. Your symptoms can provide us with clues as to what those problems might be.

Microbial Balance

We will assess Microbial Balance. Our diet and digestive function affect our delicate probiotic (microbial) environment. When our friendly gut bacteria are imbalanced, we can have digestive discomfort and issues that affect the whole body. Infections of pathogenic bacteria can make us very sick, but even our normal bacteria can make us unwell if they are overgrown or mislocated.

Poor digestive function can lead to excess undigested food moving through our intestines. If we’re not digesting our food, our gut bacteria are happy to help, but this can cause problems when too much of our food is being fermented by our microscopic friends. Their fermentation action can cause gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, inflammation, skin rashes, mood and mental imbalance, autoimmunity triggers and much more. I beleive that much of what we label as IBS is related to microbial imbalance.

Gut Immune

We will assess what is happening with your gut immune system. More than 85% of our Immune System is located in the intestines. Our friendly gut bacteria also contribute to our immunse system balance in this area. Over active or underactive immune function in the gut can be a great indicator of what is happening with your gut health and overall health. There are a lot of natural things we can do to help support our gut immune system.

Gut Lining & Leaky Gut

We will get information about the integrity of your gut lining and the mucosal layer that protects it. When there is a breakdown between the cells lining our intestines it is referred to as “Leaky Gut”. When we have leaky gut, food, bacteria, toxins and biological waste can “leak” into our blood stream and put pressure on our detoxification system, our immune system, our hormone system and various other systems in the body. Leaky gut can be as a result of all of the above.


We can see a lot of helpful information with a basic blood panel. We can review an existing blood panel from your health provider or we can order labs for you. For more complicated digestive issues I use the GI MAP Test by Diagnostic Solutions. Watch the Video below from Diagnostic Solutions explaining more about the GI MAP Stool Test.

Last But Not Least….Stress

If you have already done all of the above, there is likely a very big missing peice to your Gut Health Puzzle.

Achieving optimal digestion and gut health involves addressing, managing & healing underlying causes of stress. We will take a look at where in your life and in your body you have sources of stress.

Our brains and our digestive systems are intimately connected by the Autonomic Nervous System. Mental, physical, emotional, ancestral and genetic sources of stress are perceived by the body in similar ways. When our brain senses stress, signals are sent to our nervous system and hormonal network. This changes the metabolic functions and chemistry of the body in a muriad of ways. The Autonomic Nervous system switches into “Fight or Flight” mode (sympathetic dominance) which suppresses the “Rest, Repair and Digest” (Parasympathetic) functions. Digestion is a function of the parasympathetic nervous system, so that means if you are in a chronic state of fight or flight, digestion is going to be impaired and if this goes on long enough, all of the things mentioned in the above sections are possible.

Stress also causes an increased secretion of the stress hormone cortisol. Cortisol is catabolic which means it breaks down tissues. One of the tissues subject to breakdown is the Gut Lining. Cortisol will steal amino acids that help to hold the gut lining together. This can be a contributing factor in leaky gut syndrome as well as microbial balance because our healthy gut bacteria live in the gut lining and mucus layer. Compounded by the Autonomic Dysfunction aforementioned, you can see how this can create layers of imbalances and problems in the health of our guts.

Addressing the Mind, Gut, Brain Connection
