What Does the Large Intestine Do?

Healthy Girl 4Our bodies are an amazing creation, and the large intestine is no exception. The large intestine is an important part of the digestive process. It is said that once digested food enters the large intestine, it may take up to 32 hours for the organ to complete its work. The large intestine has several functions, including the processing of unused fiber and digested matter, reabsorbing fluid, and storing waste until it is time to exit the body.

If you’re struggling with your digestive system in any way, I encourage you to see me at my office here in Scottsdale, so we can talk about how we can get you back on track. Call us for your consultation today. 480-657-2282

Inflammatory Bowel Disease

stomach_problemsMany people have heard of Irritable Bowel Syndrome, but not many are as familiar with Inflammatory Bowel Disease. What is it? I’ll tell you.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease is the umbrella term for the two known digestive disorders that involve the inflammation of the intestines due to a hyperactive immune system: Ulcerative Colitis and Chron’s Disease. Both diseases can be very painful and can cause you to require surgery if not dealt with promptly by a physician.

Surgery is a last resort at my office here in Scottsdale. We are committed to getting to the root cause of your condition to ensure that it does not progress.  Once we identify the factors involved in your condition, we will create a comprehensive plan to restore your health and optimize the function of your body.
