March is the month that we shine awareness on Colon Cancer. Where do you start in your search for answers? Look for doctors that practice in the field of gastroenterology. This branch of medicine focuses on the digestive system and the disorders associated with it.
Many conditions can occur in the various parts of our digestive system. Colon cancer, Crohn’s disease, Colitis, and Celiac, to name a few, are related to autoimmune system activations where a leaky gut could be the underlying cause.
Genetic testing is one way to get to the root of an ailment. Having a biochemical understanding of the enzymes involved helps a doctor tailor a unique treatment for an individual based on their genes, DNA, enzymes and their own response to the conditions which initiated their illness.
Genetic testing can provide a much clearer explanation to underlying reasons why illnesses occur. Whether it be a vitamin deficiency or a more serious condition, this type of testing can quickly eliminate the guessing game. With DNA analysis, treatments can be tailored to help many conditions that may lead to difficulty with metabolizing drugs and medications or excreting toxins such as lead or aluminum.
Once the test results are studied, a comprehensive treatment plan is designed that will not only treat the ailment but bring awareness and healing to the underlying cause or causes. Diet and nutritional counseling are also included in the overall path to better health and wellness.
