Your digestive system is one of the most important systems in your whole body, everything we eat, drink or swallow involves the digestive tract. If your body cannot properly digest, absorb nutrients and eliminate waste products, then it’s nearly impossible to achieve optimal health. Your daily functional energy greatly depends on the GI system that efficiently converts food into fuel and eliminates waste. What you ingest and how you effectively metabolize nutrients directly correlates to energy, performance, restoration, and your overall feeling. The liver, kidneys and bowels naturally help the body eliminate waste products from our foods and our own metabolism. The gut is home to 80% of your immune system. Your digestive health determines how well you absorb essential nutrients needed by every cell in your body and a healthy gut is able to keep toxins from being absorbed into your body.
Here, at The Wellness Corner NJ, we believe that all disease begins in the gut. We address the root cause of the digestive system disorders, ranging from acute to chronic issues, and covering the length of the digestive tract. Improvement in symptoms and well-being is often achieved because we investigate and address the underlying cause. When the gut is compromised, an ongoing level of inflammatory process occurs, which results in issues beyond just digestive symptoms, such as “leaky gut,” immune reactivity and more. Frequently, there is more than one issue at play and a multi-layered approach is utilized.
Depending on the patient, we will design a customized and individualized gut restoration program by adopting numerous therapies and modalities that are proven to be effective in gut health. These can range from dietary and lifestyle changes, nutritional supplements, high-quality probiotics/digestive enzymes and more. This approach certifies that all issues are addressed and further encourages long-term results.

Leaky Gut Syndrome
No one is immune from the occasional stomach ache. However, prolonged or irregular issues with your gut and stomach could be the signs of serious digestive problems that require medical attention.
When a common “belly ache” becomes a regular weekly event, it could mean a serious gut imbalance that can have far reaching consequences for the entire health of your body. Don’t just chalk it up to having a “sensitive” stomach, seek out care to avoid compromising your health long-term.
Some examples of digestive issues that go undiagnosed that need medical attention include Crohn’s Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Irritable Bowel Disease, Leaky Gut Syndrome, Pathogens and Parasites growing in the gut, and Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO).
Symptoms of these conditions along with many other issues can also include constipation, diarrhea, bloating, abdominal pain, acid reflux, anxiety and neurological issues, new food allergies, and skin issues.
At The Wellness Corner NJ, our medical team is expertly trained to discuss the symptoms and causes of your digestive health problems and diagnose an effective treatment plan. These issues can be caused by nutrition issues, an undiagnosed medical issue, increased stress, a gluten allergy, inflammation or infection.
Taking gut issues seriously can mean vibrant health for a lifetime. The gut has many crucial roles in protecting the overall health and wellness of our bodies, starting with the intake and absorption of nutrients and water. However, few people realize that gut health isn’t just about having proper digestion and nutritional uptake, a health gut plays a huge role in the health of your immune system and your brain.
Recent medical breakthroughs have shown that the balance of friendly gut microbes that live in your digestive systems rule the entire health of your body. The good gut “bugs” are your first defense against harmful viruses and bacteria and also safe-guard proper communication from your brain to body not only for proper digestion but also to regulate mood and manage stress levels.
