Intestinal Health

Certified Program

About 30 to 40 % of the population suffer from symptoms such as flatulence, recurrent diarrhea, constipation, abdominal cramps and many more. Abdominal complaints might appear as diffuse picture resulting from a variety of different causes. Standard gastroenterological diagnostics generally exclude serious chronic inflammatory bowel diseases (CED), malignant neoplasms, celiac disease and other disorders that endoscopic or imaging diagnostic procedures can present.

 

These and many other complaints are diversely originated from disturbed effects of the digestive enzymes (maldigestion), from a disturbance of enteral food absorption (malabsorption) or from an unbalanced diet with too many carbohydrates, fat and proteins. In addition to extended microbiota diagnostics checking the pancreatic function, digestive residues and inflammatory factors, the intestine-associated organ systems, such as the adrenal gland, the thyroid gland, but also the kidney and liver, should be taken under consideration. Principally the micro-ecology of the intestine is pathologically altered concerning all unclear abdominal complaints, even inflammation factors are detected in every fourth to fifth finding, even if no classical inflammation parameters are found in the blood count.
