When dealing with issues such as food sensitivities or low energy, it’s important to look at all aspects of a patient’s digestive tract.
Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) April 02, 2014
Board-certified gastroenterologist Dr. Farshid Rahbar, of Los Angeles Integrative Gastroenterology & Nutrition, recently commented on a study claiming that nutrition is a key factor in digestive health. Presented at the Gut Microbacteria for Health World Summit in Florida, the study determined that nutrition ultimately influences a patient’s health and overall digestive composition. If unhealthy or otherwise bad foods are consumed, a patient’s digestive balance is disturbed, causing a number of disorders.
Utilizing a blend of holistic and traditional Western medicine, Dr. Rahbar offers his Los Angeles patients various treatments, including customized nutrition recommendations, to help deal with gastrointestinal problems that can arise from bad nutrition.
“At Los Angeles Integrative Gastroenterology & Nutrition, we realize the importance of looking at all aspects of a patient’s digestive tract when treating a patient,” says Dr. Rahbar. “The digestive system is the most diversified system in the body, and any nutritional issues with the digestive tract can have negative consequences elsewhere on the body.”
At LA Integrative Gastroenterology & Nutrition, Dr. Rahbar and his staff of specialists offer patients nutritional services such as customized nutrition recommendations, nutraceutical supplements, and dietitian and lifestyle education to ensure that patients are informed about how nutrition can affect disorders throughout the entire body.
“As this study shows, bad nutrition can result in a variety of disorders and conditions,” says Dr. Rahbar. “Chronic fatigue, acid reflux, and intestinal infections can all be the result of unbalanced nutrition. At LA Integrative, we provide patients with nutritional services on an individualized basis, ensuring that each patient receives treatment that is perfect for him or her.”
