Many people do not realize how important the GI tract (gut) is to our overall health.

Sure, we all know that without it we can’t metabolize and absorb food, and when it’s unhappy we can become miserable pretty quickly! However, the flora (the healthy bacteria that we’re told we should eat yogurt to replenish) of the gut plays a critical role in our immune system health.

Over 70% of our immune system actually resides in the gut. Between the beneficial and symbiotic healthy gut flora and the digestive and immunoprotective activities of the gut itself, gut health is paramount to overall good health.

If we face the facts, most of us have a history of taking antibiotics and other medications that can adversely affect healthy gut flora.

While more MDs are suggesting the use of probiotics during antibiotic administration, many of us have imbalanced, unhealthy gut flora from years of neglect.

In addition to candida, toxicity, constipation, drugs and even fast food, the gut lining itself can actually break down through irritation and inflammation, leading to complaints like irritable bowel syndrome and leaky gut. When this happens, the immune system becomes severely affected in many ways.

Because much biomedical research on autism is focused on helping to reduce inflammation and dysbiosis of the gut, through our work with children with autism and developmental delays, we’ve considered a new tagline: “GUTS ARE US.”

We at the Homeopathy Center of Houston have learned many outside-the-box methods to support healthy intestinal flora and reduction of toxins and irritants through an advanced, sequential, homeopathic detoxification.

Many of our children experience significant improvement by reducing the population of harmful microbial levels and increasing the levels of beneficial bacteria and flora in their guts. This reduces levels of inflammation markers in laboratory tests.

Most tangibly, when gut health improves, so do behavior, language, academics and even social skills.

Our work with autism has transferred to the way we approach our adult clients with GI issues.

Homeopathy for Guts
Many adults we work with also suffer from what we call “an autistic gut, without the autism.” They arrive at our offices with a myriad of diagnoses, such as irritable bowel syndrome, diverticulitis, diverticulosis, intestinal polyps, chronic diarrhea, chronic constipation, alternating between constipation and diarrhea, Crohn’s Disease and even something called “toddler loose stool syndrome.”

With these clients, we focus on reducing the pathogens, parasites and toxins that are keeping the gut inflamed and reducing systemic inflammation. We work with German Biological Medicine, our proprietary remedies for healing the gut, and the sequential homeopathy of the Houston Homeopathy Method to help the body restore the integrity of the gut lining, thereby improving function of the entire intestinal tract.

Downstream, this becomes a self-perpetuating path to health as the healthy gut becomes the basis of the healthy immune system.

We sometimes meet people who have had massive surgical removal of sections of their intestines, stomach surgeries, esophageal erosion, etc. In cases where parts of the structure are missing, there will always be some level of compromise that homeopathy may not fully be able to overcome.

But even in these cases, many clients have found they are much more capable of managing their health with homeopathy than with the drugs their doctors offered as “symptom management.” Some choose an integrative approach, whereby they utilize the best that both the medical and the homeopathic worlds have to offer and find themselves nearly symptom free.

Some of the most rewarding cases are those in which the client comes to us after being told by their doctor that their condition could be managed, but never cured. Imagine their surprise and relief to discover that after working with us not only is their gut improved, but their whole immune system is stronger. Many of these clients happily report they no longer have any symptoms left to manage.

People often come to us because hope has been snatched by the conventional medical world. In the skilled, experienced hands of our practitioners, these amazing, safe, nontoxic homeopathic remedies can truly work miracles.

If you or someone you love has been told they have an “untreatable” or “hopeless” digestive problem and if the drugs prescribed don’t help or even add new problems, please call our office. Homeopathy does not require a diagnosis to be effective. Even multiple or end-on-end diagnoses don’t matter to us.

Whether you have a formal diagnosis or are noticing the beginning of problems, homeopathy stands out as a therapy that can assist in avoiding further erosion of health, and it can often restore the gut to serve as the immune system and digestive workhorse it was designed to be.

There is hope, there is help, and homeopathy offers both.
