Nutrition for Gastrointestinal and Liver Disease Treatment
Using nutrition and diet food plans, Dr. Asamoah’s team helps patients find long-lasting solutions that address the root causes of their gastrointestinal issues. It’s part of our multidisciplinary approach to wellness, in which the integration of conventional and alternative medicine helps us effectively address our patients’ gastrointestinal conditions. Functional nutrition therapy is just one discipline we incorporate into our integrative treatment plans in our Katy, TX office, working with patients in a partnership that leads to optimal health and wellness.
Functional Clinical Nutrition Therapy Relieves Gastrointestinal Distress
The right diet is a key factor in managing gastrointestinal disorders. That’s why nutrition therapy is an essential part of an integrative wellness plan. By performing a comprehensive nutrition assessment, a registered dietician can counsel patients about behavior and lifestyle changes that use nutrition for gastrointestinal disease treatment. Functional nutrition therapy can address a variety of conditions and illnesses, improving not only health but also the overall quality of life. By analyzing a patient’s diet, our team can identify the negative and positive impacts of different food choices, working to help craft a plan that will lead to optimal gastrointestinal health.
Gastrointestinal Symptoms Can Be Disruptive
Gastrointestinal disease can affect every part of the digestive system. Frequently, patients experience symptoms of gastrointestinal disease and ignore them. These symptoms include:
- Abdominal Pain
- Acid Reflux
- Bad breath
- Canker sores
- Gas or Flatulence
Often, these are dismissed as an annoyance when they may be signs of gastrointestinal disease. It’s a mistake to ignore these symptoms because the gastrointestinal disease can often be managed using treatments like functional nutrition therapy and therapeutic food plans like eliminations diets, low FODMPAS diet, low histamine diet, autoimmune diet, ketogenic diets, and intermittent fasting. Diseases that warrant the help of a specialist include:
- GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease)
- Food allergies
- Food reactions
- Fatty liver / Insulin resistance
- Gallbladder Disorders
- Biliary Tract Disorders
- Colon cancer
- Acid Reflux Disease
