Chiropractic Care for Digestive HealthDo you ever feel like your digestion isn’t up to par?

Good digestive health is an important key to better overall health. Thankfully, if you’re having digestive issues, your Bremerton chiropractor can present you with some effective options to resolve them. 

Why You Might Be Dealing with Sluggish Digestion

Poor digestion has many causes. You need to find the root cause of your digestive disorder. Dr. Gemmer will help you get to the bottom with an evaluation and various diagnostic tests. 

Some common digestive issues include:  

  • GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease) 
  • Gallstones
  • Constipation
  • Celiac disease
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Crohn’s disease
  • IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)
  • Diverticulitis

What causes these digestive conditions? In many cases, poor diet is the root cause. For example, if you eat too many high-fat foods, you’ll end up with gallstones. If you eat a lot of inflammatory foods, you can aggravate your digestive tract, leading to heartburn, stomach cramps, and diarrhea. Lack of whole foods and the fiber they provide can lead to constipation. 

How Your Bremerton Chiropractor Can Help You Boost Your Digestive Health 

Your digestive system is controlled by nerves. If you have subluxations (spinal misalignment), the nerves supplying your digestive tract can become impinged. Messages are thus interrupted, which can have a profoundly negative effect on your digestive health. 

Chiropractic adjustments realign the spine, allowing your nerves to function optimally. The result of this is improved digestive function. 

Dr. Gemmer Can Help You Supercharge Your Digestion

One of Dr. Erwin Gemmer’s areas of focus is digestive health. He’s passionate about helping his patients achieve optimal health – and to do that, they need to have exceptional digestive health.

When patients come to him, he isn’t interested in just providing spinal realignment adjustments. He evaluates each patient’s overall health, asking them about any digestive issues, like acid reflux and diarrhea

Based on his assessment, he’ll recommend various treatment options, including adjustments, nutritional counseling, and toxin detection. Dr. Gemmer will work on removing toxins from your system and taking steps to provide you with improved digestion.
