Do You Know How to Treat Your Functional Gastrointestinal Disorder?

Functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGIDs) are a diverse group of conditions characterized by chronic or recurrent symptoms related to the gastrointestinal (GI) tract.

They include

  • IBS

  • Dyspepsia

  • Constipation

  • Abdominal migraines

  • And more

These disorders affect up to 40% of people, are often associated with a marked impact on quality of life, and can lead to significant psychological distress and functional impairment.

A growing body of evidence suggests that FGIDs are associated with alterations in the gut microbiota, GI motility and permeability, immune dysfunction, and neurological abnormalities, including increased visceral sensitivity of the GI tract.

The management of FGIDs typically involves a combination of specific lifestyle and dietary modifications, pharmaceutical drugs, supplements, psychological and physical therapy. If you or a loved one suffer from these disorders, this article can help you understand functional medicine approaches to treating FGIDs so that you can heal and thrive.
