Digestive disorders can be disruptive to your life. Cornerstone Wellness Center will work with you to improve your digestion at any of our locations in Ahwatukee and Mesa. A properly working gastrointestinal system is an important factor in maintaining your health. This is important in releasing toxins, excess hormones, and can even raise cortisol or blood sugar levels. Inflammation in your colon is where disease can begin. Disorders that affect the digestive (gastrointestinal) system are called digestive disorders. Some disorders simultaneously affect several parts of the digestive system, whereas others affect only one part or organ. Some symptoms that suggest you might be experiencing a digestive disorder are diarrhea, constipation, bleeding from digestive track, regurgitation, difficulty swallowing, abdominal pain, passing gas, loss of appetite, hiccups or nausea. Bowel movements and function vary greatly from person to person. Changes in frequency of bowel movements or the occurrence of blood, mucus, pus, or excess fatty material in the stool may indicate a more serious digestive disorder.
