Now is the time to get those solved, especially if you or your kid is going off to college.
You don’t want them missing school because they are in pain or have to rush to the bathroom all the time. And problems like this affect far more than just their academics. They also affect their social life and their overall development.
Digestive problems mean that they aren’t breaking down their foods properly, which means that they aren’t getting the nutrition that they normally would from their foods. This in turn means that their body and brain aren’t being provided the same amount of base elements required for optimal development that they would normally be getting.
This will affect energy, mental clarity, skin health, sleep, and just about everything else, not just digestive function.
Solving my digestive problems changed my entire life, not just my digestion. I have way more energy than I used to, my skin is much better, and I can focus and learn a lot better than I ever could before. And I don’t have IBS any more either! I wish I had been able to solve my IBS a lot earlier in my life that I did.
So if you or your child experiences diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain, gas or bloating, don’t wait to schedule a consult, regardless of what time of year it is. Your action could change the rest of their life. Go get your gut in shape and enjoy your summer to it’s fullest.
