Sherman Oaks Nutritional Counseling Successful in Treating Digestive Disorders
SHERMAN OAKS, Calif., Aug. 19, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hygiea Health and Wellness announced that the practice offers nutritional treatment for digestive disorders. These treatments are designed to target the underlying causes for disorders such as gastric reflux, ulcers, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome and colitis. Chiropractor Dr. Robert Schwartz says that nutritional counseling can also provide relief for the symptoms associated with digestive disorders. In addition to nutritional counseling, the Sherman Oaks chiropractor also provides chiropractic care.
Individuals who suffer from digestive disorders have benefited from Sherman Oaks nutritional counseling. According to chiropractor Dr. Schwartz, nutrition is instrumental when addressing digestive imbalances such as gastric reflux, constipation and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
"I provide results-based nutrition counseling," said Dr. Schwartz. "My treatments are tailored to each patient's individual needs, such as gastrointestinal disorders, Type 2 diabetes and weight loss. My goal is to address underlying causes for chronic digestive problems, alleviate symptoms, and enhance overall wellness."
The Sherman Oaks chiropractor begins treatment by taking a patient's full nutritional history, discussing daily dietary choices, physical activity and other factors that may be contributing to digestive disorders. He then makes specific recommendations for dietary changes. Working closely with the patient, Dr. Schwartz creates a custom dietary plan.
"Small changes can have a big impact on overall health," said Dr. Schwartz. "For example, incorporating herbal and micronutrient supplements can reduce digestive disorder symptoms. Some patients may no longer need prescription medication."
Following the adoption of a new diet, Dr. Schwartz says that patients may notice both a reduction in digestive disorder symptoms as well as overall health improvement.
"Not only are their digestive disorder symptoms lessened, but patients also report that they have more energy, sleep better, and are better able to focus," said Dr. Schwartz. "Small dietary changes, like eating the right balance of supplements and nutrients, are natural medicine for the body."
Dr. Schwartz is a member of the International Foundation for Nutrition and Health as well as the Weston A. Price Nutritional Foundation.
