Your Gut Tells the Whole Story

Woman with Gut PainDigestive problems can range from temporary discomfort after eating, to life-long persistent disorders. In most cases, the treatment is simply to avoid the foods that cause the symptoms.

I myself have ended up in A&E for acute pain from Lactose intolerance (when your body can’t break down, or digest  lactose which is a basic sugar found in milk and milk products, or generally dairy foods, but not meat.) The pain in the gut is very intense and lasted with me for 12 hours.

Most adults lack the ability to make the enzyme lactase, which is needed to break down the lactose. The solution usually is to cut dairy out of your diet.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

IBS, Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a long-term condition that can cause stomach cramps, bloating, diarrhea, and constipation. It is poorly understood, but seems to be triggered from stress, inadequate lifestyle and certain types of foods.

IBS causes bowel spasms which can block gas and waste from passing though, or it can cause waste to move too quickly and cause diarrhea.

The solution is to change your lifestyle and destress.


Many people experience abdominal pain, fatigue, headaches, and even numbness of the limbs when they eat Gluten. Gluten is a protein found in grains, such as wheat, barley, and rye.


  1. If you experience any of the above symptoms see your doctor but follow the guidelines too.
  2. De-stress as a matter of urgency if any digestive issues show.
  3. Come to Get Back Health Chiropractic and Wellness Clinic and get adjusted weekly so that your busy lifestyle doesn’t catch up with you. Once you are doing well you can go on a maintenance program

Yours in Health
