GI Detox and Gut Health

Here at Austin Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine, we provide custom treatment plans by working with Diagnostic Solutions Lab, to examine the toxins that are causing your GI issues and digestive problems. We use the GI Map Test from DSL to determine the cause of many ailments that are related to gut health. Migraines, fibromyalgia, TMJ, unexplained fatigue or pain, autoimmune disorders, IBS, Gluten sensitivities and/or Celiac and Leaky gut are some of the conditions that can be uncovered through this test data.

Research overwhelmingly indicates that gut health impacts overall health. The gut microbiome, in particular, plays a critical role in mediating the effects of diet and other factors on health, including digestive, immune, metabolic and neuroendocrine functions. Assessing GI health with the proper tools helps us get to the root cause of your chronic illness.

Digestion is a highly complex task for our bodies to perform. Only 10 years ago did doctors discover that the gastrointestinal tract is akin to a second brain. For 70 million Americans, the root cause of digestive issues are surprisingly difficult to diagnose, including IBS, gallstones, pancreatitis, and acid reflux. In fact, most people simply accept their GI issues and begrudgingly build an endurance to chronic pain.

Some conditions that require testing are:

  • Autoimmune diseases

  • IBS/IBD Digestive complaints, diarrhea or constipation

  • Brain fog

  • Skin problems, like acne and psoriasis

  • Mood disorders, depression, and anxiety

  • Diabetes and weight loss issues

Whether you're looking to achieve optimal health, or have been chronically ill, and frustrated without a diagnosis for years, reach out to our experienced practitioners to schedule a consultation and explore the many options we have for you to find relief finally.
