What would you recommend?

Jake is a 36-year-old sergeant in the army who has always had a “sensitive gut,” but his symptoms got worse after taking broad-spectrum antibiotics for pneumonia while he was Afghanistan. Any food seems to make his symptoms worse, particularly beer, which he enjoys drinking with his friends. His diet is rather poor. He eats a lot of processed foods with few vegetables and fruits.

What would you tell Jake and how would you implement a Whole Health approach to care?

Our Digestive Health overview provides more information about Jake and incorporates complementary and integrative practices to prevent or improve acute and chronic symptoms related to Celiac disease, GERD, and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). We also offer Whole Health tools on specific topics related to digestive health below.
