Dec 15, 2018


Welcome to Monarch Integrative Health, where we prioritize your digestive and gastrointestinal (GI) health. Our expert practitioner, Jenny Demeaux, RNC ND, is dedicated to helping you achieve optimal digestive function and overall well-being. With our comprehensive approach to care, we provide personalized solutions for various digestive issues.

The Importance of Digestive Health

Your digestive system plays a crucial role in your overall health. It is responsible for absorbing nutrients, eliminating waste, and maintaining a balanced microbiome. When your digestive system functions optimally, you experience enhanced nutrient absorption, improved energy levels, and a strengthened immune system.

Common Digestive Issues

At Monarch Integrative Health, we understand that many individuals suffer from digestive issues that can significantly impact their quality of life. Some of the common digestive issues we address include:

  • 1. Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS): IBS is a common disorder characterized by abdominal pain, bloating, and changes in bowel habits. Our personalized treatment plans aim to reduce symptoms and improve overall digestion.
  • 2. Acid Reflux: Acid reflux occurs when stomach acid flows back into the esophagus, causing heartburn and discomfort. We employ holistic techniques to manage acid reflux naturally.
  • 3. Food Intolerances: Food intolerances can lead to digestive discomfort, inflammation, and other related symptoms. Through targeted diagnostic testing, we identify trigger foods and create customized dietary approaches.
  • 4. Leaky Gut Syndrome: Leaky gut syndrome refers to increased gut permeability, allowing toxins and undigested particles to enter the bloodstream. Our treatment protocols focus on healing and sealing the gut lining.
  • 5. Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD): IBD encompasses conditions like Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, which cause chronic inflammation in the digestive tract. We work with you to manage symptoms and promote healing.

Our Approach to Digestive Health

At Monarch Integrative Health, we believe in a holistic approach to digestive health. Our comprehensive care plan includes the following components:

1. Nutritional Guidance

Proper nutrition is foundational for optimal digestive function. We assess your dietary habits and create personalized plans that support healthy digestion. Our focus is on nutrient-dense, whole foods that nourish your body.

2. Lifestyle Modifications

In addition to dietary changes, we identify lifestyle factors that may be contributing to your digestive issues. Stress management techniques, exercise recommendations, and sleep optimization are all part of our integrative approach.

3. Herbal and Nutritional Supplements

We utilize evidence-based herbal and nutritional supplements to support digestive health and address underlying imbalances. These targeted interventions can help alleviate symptoms and promote healing.

4. Gut Microbiome Optimization

Your gut microbiome consists of trillions of microorganisms that play a vital role in digestion and overall health. We develop personalized strategies to promote a diverse and thriving gut microbiome to optimize your digestive function.

5. Functional Diagnostic Testing

Determining the root cause of your digestive issues is crucial for effective treatment. We utilize advanced functional diagnostic testing, such as comprehensive stool analysis and food sensitivity testing, to gain a deeper understanding of your unique needs.
