GI Function & Dysfunction: Insights & Education

Gut Dysfunction & Chronic Conditions

For many chronic conditions, dysfunction starts in the gut.

Research suggests that when the normal integrity of the GI tract is compromised, it can result in distant systematic complaints, even in the absence of overt GI symptoms.
