Heal the Gut. Heal The Body.
If you are experiencing bloating, pain, diarrhea, constipation or other generalized symptoms including fatigue, mood changes, brain fog, joint pain or acne, that may be linked to digestion, you are not alone. Your digestive system is fundamental to overall wellness as it is becoming increasingly clear that your brain, your immune system, and your gut microbes are intricately linked. The GI tract is a host to 85% of your immune system and 95% of your neurotransmitters including acetylcholine for memory and concentration; dopamine which supports motivation; serotonin your sleep and happy hormone and the partners GABA and glutamate which promote relaxation and intellect. At Revivelife Clinic in Ottawa, our goal is to assess the root cause of your concerns by understanding you, the foods that you eat, the lifestyle that you lead and the use of integrative testing. This allows us to create a personalized plan for your path to wellness.
