When your body is not fully digesting and making use of the nutrients in your food and eliminating waste products it can give rise to many seemingly unrelated health issues. In addition to indigestion, gas, bloating, diarrhea and constipation digestive issues can also lead to systemic inflammation, allergies, fatigue, immune system dysfunction, cloudy-headedness, emotional instability, migraines and chronic pain. The bottom line is this: if your gut is not happy, your body is not happy and you will likely find yourself limited in living the life you want to live. Dr. Laura is an expert in digestive health and in the body-wide benefits of cleansing. Dr. Laura is bilingual, speaking both English and Spanish, and is honored to be able to work with the Spanish-speaking community here in Tumwater.
