Digestive Disorders

A healthy digestion is key to your wellbeing, yet for many people who suffer from chronic health problems the gut is often overlooked. At Radius Health, we work closely with each client to uncover why you are experiencing your gut signs and symptoms. We will also work with your doctor to get the right testing done. By using general and functional pathology testing we can understand exactly what we are dealing with. Above all, you can expect:

  • Healthcare that seeks to find and address underlying causes
  • Treatment that is tailored for your specific circumstances
  • An evidence-based approach to wellness medicine

Our Services

There’s a long list of clues which point to gut problems. Those who suffer from them will know them well: nausea, intestinal bloating, flatulence, abdominal pain and changeable stools, among others.

But there is another problem with poor gut health – many sufferers simply endure it thinking that it can’t be treated successfully, or they suspect that they have a gut problem but have never been diagnosed.

Some people try to relieve the discomfort by restricting their diet to avoid triggering gut issues. Others live with ongoing pain thinking that it’s normal or that there are no treatments.

When required, we will use evidence-based treatments such as digestive enzyme and stomach acid support, anti-microbial herbs, digestive anti-inflammatory herbs, pre and probiotics and dietary changes to correct deficiencies and imbalances in the digestive tract.

Whatever your condition, there is one aim in all of this – living without the symptoms. That’s a goal worth working towards.

 About Your Appointment

We love the phrase ‘knowledge is power’. It illustrates our entire approach to healthcare. When you have a detailed understanding of your situation, you are empowered to make the decisions necessary to resolve your health issues. The more knowledge we have as your practitioner, the better we are at uncovering the root causes of your illness and devising the right treatment for it.

We obtain that information from various sources. We compile it during our consultations by assessing your case and family history, and by analysing your signs and symptoms. We also use scientifically-rigorous testing and will consult the medical literature relevant to your case.

While every client has individual needs, we have a list of guiding principles that underpin our practice. These are:

N

Invite you into the process

N

Use high-quality testing for accurate results
