Digestive Problems

Do you suffer from frequent indigestion? Have you been diagnosed with gastric reflux disease (GERD)? Are you having frequent bloating and belching after eating certain foods? Are you no longer able to eat certain foods? Do you have food allergies or food intolerances? Are you concerned about having parasites, yeast overgrowth, H. Pylori or other harmful intestinal bacteria? Do you want your gastrointestinal (GI) problem finally resolved instead of just coping with it or masking it through over-the-counter remedies or prescription medications? Call us and have a holistic healthcare physician help you.Dr Husbands has provided natural and holistic health care in California for over 18 years, with the last 5 years in the San Francisco bay area. He has helped many people not only get rid of symptoms, but also correctly diagnose and resolve the problem. He uses clinically proven and scientifically supported holistic treatments.

Many GI problems are due to imbalances in intestinal microflora brought on by antibiotics and corticosteroid drugs. With his Functional Medicine training, Dr Husbands understands the processes that lead to GI problems and knows how to reverse GI disease processes through his vast knowledge of clinical nutrition and anti-aging healthcare.

We specialize in resolving:

  • GERD, indigestion and “acid stomach”
  • Food allergies and intolerances
  • H. Pylori, Cryptosporidium, Candida and other pathogenic infestations
  • Intestinal dysbiosis
  • Infantile diarrhea, colic and early childhood recurrent upper respiratory and ear infections

What to Expect

When you schedule an appointment with Dr Husbands, he will perform a thorough review your medical history, and order some laboratory tests. He will put together a treatment plan that typically includes:

  1. Temporary elimination dietary program to remove any allergic or intolerant foods to allow the GI tract lining to heal
  2. Advanced laboratory tests to determine the state of the GI tract lining and function, including presence of pathogens
  3. Removal of any pathogenic bacteria, yeasts, fungi or parasites present using effective herbal and nutrient combinations
  4. Reinoculation of beneficial bacteria into the intestines and colon
  5. Replace digestive enzymes, bile salts or stomach acid for proper GI function
  6. Repair of the GI lining with specific phytonutrients

As needed, your treatment plan may also include:

  • lifestyle modifications to influence your GI digestion and absorption
  • chiropractic for proper neural communication
  • energy medicine techniques such as BioSET for allergy elimination
  • a comfortable, effective 7-day, 14-day or 21-day detoxification program
  • colonic irrigation at a nearby location
  • coffee enemas in special instances for significant detoxification
