Functional Medicine treatment of Diarrhea

The functional treatment of diarrhea involves addressing the underlying causes and imbalances contributing to frequent, loose bowel movements. This approach goes beyond merely managing symptoms and seeks to restore optimal digestive health. Functional medicine practitioners conduct a thorough assessment of diet, gut microbiome, food sensitivities, infections, and stress levels to identify triggers. Treatment often includes dietary modifications, such as eliminating trigger foods, addressing gut dysbiosis with probiotics, and implementing stress reduction techniques. By addressing the root causes and promoting gut health, functional treatment aims to provide lasting relief from diarrhea and improve overall gastrointestinal well-being.
