Digestive Services

Do you have an unhappy digestive tract?

The digestive system is a complicated bodily process that is often over-simplified. This is made worse by the many myths that misguide people around digestion, Crohn’s, IBS, the gastrointestinal tract (GI) and food sensitivities.

I find people with digestive and food sensitivity health concerns frequently wind up on overly restrictive diets. Many people that come into my office have eliminated many foods from fear and inaccurate information. The result is joyless eating and a compromise to their health.

Some of the diagnoses and diseases patients are referred to me for are:

  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Ulcerative Colitis
  • Celiac Disease
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Surgeries where parts of the GI tract have been removed
  • Constipation or diarrhea
  • General pain and discomfort in the GI
  • Food allergy or intolerance

The LEAP Mediator Release Test (MRT)®
For many digestive patients I will recommend The LEAP MRT®. This is a specialized blood test, which quickly identifies trigger foods and food chemicals. It does this by measuring your body’s delayed immune response to 150 foods and other commonly eaten substances.

The MRT test is more complete and exact than other tests for delayed food hypersensitivity. Many tests that are done for food sensitivities are not as comprehensive as this one. It helps me quickly narrow down the potential food offenders. This means more accuracy and more rapid improvements.

Following the LEAP testing helped break the cycle of migraines and has given me my life back. I do not have the buildup of “poisons” in my system now. This has changed the quality of life beyond belief, not only my life.”

Many food-sensitive patients quickly overcome symptoms once I am able to identify the sensitivity and eliminate it from their diet. Specialized food sensitivity testing is crucial in identifying these adverse reactions to food.

This testing unfortunately is not covered by insurance in most cases. Also, I recommend mineral and vitamin level tests often. The tests help me identify deficiencies with accuracy. Deficiencies can be responsible for some symptoms and contribute to health problems.

You may also have read about FODMAPs. This is an acronym that stands for Fermentable Oligo-, Di- and Mono-saccharides, and Polyols. They are short chain carbohydrates and monosaccharides found in many common foods.

Many people do not absorb FODMAP carbohydrates well. In some cases a low FODMAP diet can help reduce Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and other functional gut disorder symptoms. I can determine if this is true for you after a thorough initial nutritional assessment.

“I have struggled with Crohn’s Disease and had been diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis for many years. My diarrhea attacks from the Crohn’s Disease were frequent and intense lasting for one to four days. Four weeks after I began working with Amy Rose, I awoke and realized that I didn’t hurt – no headaches, no sore muscles, no bloating, no bleeding and no body aches.  

It feels great to be healthy again!”
