How Your Gut Microbiome Affects Your Health

dr poe headshot outsideAre you suffering from digestive issues and unpleasant symptoms, but finding no solutions with traditional methods of care? The problem may be in your gut microbiome. The bacterial environment in the gut is full of both good and bad bacteria. When the bad bacteria outweigh the good, it may lead to a host of health issues, including digestive and immune problems.

The Importance of a Balanced Microbiome

Research has shown that nearly 80% or more of our immune system is in our gut microbiome, making it crucial to support and maintain a balance of good and bad bacteria. Without this balance, chronic health issues may occur and limit your quality of life.

At inBalance Chiropractic and Wellness, Dr. Poe uses functional lab testing to assess the status of your microbiome. Once she determines which areas have become problematic, she uses natural methods and modalities to help balance your gut, allowing the systems in your body to function as they were designed to do.

Resetting Gut Health

A young college student came to us after suffering with digestive issues for two years. She woke up every day feeling horrendous and anxious after eating. Despite numerous tests and lab work, her medical doctors found nothing wrong with her. She decided to try our natural methods in hopes of obtaining some answers.

Dr. Poe ran some hair study labs, discovering a few vitamin and nutrient imbalances, as well as issues in her microbiome and digestive enzymes. After a six to eight week gut health reset program customized to her labs and history, the patient saw significant improvement. Two months later, she reported an 80-90% improvement in her condition, and was finally able to eat in the dining hall with friends.

What Is a Hair Study?

A functional health hair panel is a diagnostic tool that provides insights into health optimization. Used in addition to traditional bloodwork, it looks at food sensitivities, nutritional deficiencies, electrolyte imbalances, and gut microbiome and digestive health.
