Nearly 70 million Americans suffer with some form of digestive complaint. From constipation and bloating to SIBO and Crohn’s disease, making digestive related symptoms one of the most common internal conditions that we see in practice. The digestive system is an essential component of a healthy and vital body. Digestion can be disrupted by high stress, poor diet and environmental toxins leading to an imbalance of the microbiome. Left unresolved, an imbalanced digestive tract can make eating uncomfortable, disrupt sleep and lead to systemic inflammation
At Inner Gate Health & Wellness in Portland, Oregon we diagnose each digestive complaint and then use Chinese herbal medicine, supplements, diet recommendations and acupuncture to treat each patient in a unique way. This allows us to work directly with the underlying causes of the disease to create lasting results.
