Do you suffer from an inflammatory bowel disease?


(Image is Clickable Link) FILE PHOTO - Brad Whisnant is a doctor and practitioner of Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture at Pinpoint Acupuncture Clinics in St. Helens. Do you suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO), Crohn’s Disease or some other inflammatory bowel disease? Are you ready to possibly be done with your pathology? Are you tired of just managing your symptoms and wish there was something to treat the “why,” and not just stick a Band-aid over the “what?”

I suffered with these issues in my 30s, and that’s why I’m super excited to be offering “medical grade food.”

The Importance of Proper Digestion When we eat such things as bread, meat and vegetables, they are not in a form the body can use as nourishment. Our food and drink must be changed into smaller molecules of nutrients before they can be absorbed into the blood and carried to cells throughout the body. Digestion is the process by which food and drink are broken down into their smallest parts so that the body can use them to build and nourish cells and to provide energy.

Transport and Absorption of Nutrients Digested molecules of food, water and minerals from the diet are absorbed from the cavity of the upper small intestine. The absorbed materials cross the mucosa into the blood, and are carried off in the bloodstream to other parts of the body for storage or further chemical change. This process varies with different types of nutrients.

If we want to be healthy, we must have proper digestion. If we are not getting any nutrients, how can we thrive, let alone survive? It’s massively important to have a good digestive system for our health, mood, emotions, strength, vitality, energy, reproduction and overall wellness. I know of no healthy people who have a faulty digestive system.

Come get your digestion back on track and feeling amazing. If I don’t think can help you with your issue, your consultation visit will be free.
