Dr. Mullins book Wake up to the truth Behind Crohn's Disease has gained much recognition in the IBD medical community. As new science has emerged in the field of Inflammatory Bowel Disease, she finds herself on a mission to help bring the information to light, in layman's terms. These discoveries are on the very fringe of medicine, and not widely known to the public. Her association with cutting edge organizations such as Human Para Foundation have helped garner her work and contributions in offering an alternative understanding of Crohn's and Colitis through education. She is keenly aware that knowledge is power, and passionately assists in pioneering new roads in not only preventing these devastating conditions, but also healing them.
A Functional Medicine 4-Step Approach to Overcome Digestive Disorders
Step #1: REMOVE
Dysbiosis (imbalance in the gut flora) and 'leaky gut' are often synonymous with INFECTION. Dysbiosis and infection lie on a spectrum causing varying degrees of symptoms. You must remove the infection before you do anything else. This can be done with powerful antimicrobials (natural antibiotics).
Step #2: REPLACE
Infection may have left you depleted of stomach acid or enzymes to digest food.
Step #3: REINOCULATE
You will have to support the body with good bacteria. There is much evidence now that very little if any ‘probiotics’ can withstand the acidity of the stomach……have taking traditional probiotics ever really helped you? Soil based probiotics are necessary as they DO survive the stomach and create natural antibiotics in the gut lining that assist in eliminating infection. Read my blog on soil organisms here.
Step # 4: REPAIR
The mucosal lining of the intestines has been compromised due to dysbiosis/infection. Inflammation has caused the tight junctions of the colon wall to loosen, allowing undigested food particles to seep through- this spells brain fog and fatigue among many other things. The lining will naturally begin to heal itself once infection is resolved, however, assisting the body in this process is important.
