GI Disorders Q & A

What are GI disorders?

Gastrointestinal disorders, or GI disorders, are diseases of the digestive tract. That includes your esophagus, stomach, large intestine, small intestine, liver, pancreas, and gallbladder. 

Most types of digestive disease present symptoms that are hard to ignore. These include:


  • Abdominal bloating or discomfort
  • Belly pain
  • Belching
  • Flatulence
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Weight gain or weight loss
  • Heartburn
  • Bloody stool


The first step in improving your digestive function is determining the source of your symptoms. 

Dr. Nagallo at Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic offers outstanding diagnostic and treatment services for a wide range of gastrointestinal conditions, including:


  • Fungal overgrowth in the small intestine
  • Bowel overgrowth in the small intestine
  • Acid reflux, heartburn, gastrointestinal reflux disease (GERD)


Dr. Nagallo also treats irritable bowel syndrome and food intolerances or sensitivities. 

What is irritable bowel syndrome?

Irritable bowel syndrome, or IBS, is a common disorder of the large intestine. It’s a chronic condition, which means you need to manage your symptoms throughout your life. 


Dr. Nagallo offers a holistic approach to help you find relief from the symptoms of IBS. Lifestyle modifications play a big role in that process. Learning which foods exacerbate your IBS and finding healthy alternatives is a central part of the treatment process.


The good news is that IBS does not damage your bowel tissues, nor does it increase your risk of colorectal cancer. The symptoms can interfere with normal daily activities, however, and it’s important to seek treatment.   

How can lifestyle changes improve GI disease?

Holistic health care considers much more than a specific list of symptoms. Dr. Nagallo works with you to evaluate how your physical, emotional, mental, social, and environmental elements are working to impact your health and wellness. That approach allows for a much more detailed diagnosis and treatment plan. 


Very often, lifestyle factors are the primary contributor to gastrointestinal symptoms. What you eat, when you eat it, and how much physical activity you get each day can create or relieve digestive issues. Dr. Nagallo offers comprehensive testing for food sensitivities and guidance on how to alter your diet. 


Food allergies, intolerance, and sensitivities are incredibly common and are the source of many digestive symptoms. If you have issues with gluten or any other food, Dr. Nagallo can help you construct a healthy diet that will relieve unpleasant symptoms. Those changes can help you feel more energized and healthier than you’ve felt in years.    

What treatments can help improve GI disease?

Your treatment plan from Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic is devised to meet your current set of needs. That path might include acupuncture sessions, which can not only relieve digestive pain but can also improve the fatigue and brain fog that so often accompanies digestive issues. 


Integrating high-quality probiotics is also an important part of treatment. As you move through your personalized treatment plan, Dr. Nagallo continues to monitor your progress and make adjustments as needed. 


In some cases, IV therapy and targeted injections can give your system the boost needed to promote healing and improve GI function. 


If you’re tired of organizing your life around GI symptoms, come in to learn more about digestive health services. The sooner you get started, the sooner you can return to the activities you love. Call Dr. Nagallo at Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic or schedule an appointment online today.
