IBS, Chrohn's Disease and GI Disturbance

intestinesIRRITABLE BOWEL DISEASE/GUT DYSFUNCTION: Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder, affecting some 58 million Americans. Yet it’s also one that many people aren’t comfortable talking about because the signs and symptoms may be embarrassing. Some signs and symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome are:

  • Abdominal cramping
  • Bloating and gas
  • Diarrhea, constipation or both

Many people have only mild signs and symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome. However, for some the problems can be disabling, and in those cases, you usually have severe signs and symptoms that don’t respond well to medical treatment.

For most people, IBS is a chronic condition, although there will likely be times when the signs and symptoms are worse and times when they improve or even disappear completely.

Patient Testimonial

Ulcerative Colitis success!


After suffering for years with stomach pain, acid reflux and indigestion, she finally gets the proper diagnosis - celiac. Now with the proper information, we have tailored her treatment plan to fit her new dietary needs. Listen to the great testimonial and hear about the huge improvements she has had in her overall health - AMAZING!

Irritable Bowel symptoms can be triggered by a range of things from gas or pressure on your intestines to medications or emotions. Many people have an intolerance for certain food products. If you suffer from IBS, you’ll know shortly after eating or drinking those products. Another trigger is stress. Most people with IBS find that their signs and symptoms are worse or more frequent during stressful events, such as a change in their daily routine or family arguments.

Medical treatment tends to focus on the relief of symptoms. Some of the treatments include anti-diarrhea drugs, anticholinergic (these drugs suppress the nervous system) drugs and even anti-depressants. Bear in mind, all of these drugs have side effects, some even fatal.

Using functional neurology and specific chiropractic adjustments (that affect the parasympathetic nervous system) have helped many individuals suffering from IBS, even ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. We see drastic improvements in all types of gastrointestinal disturbance using our neurological interventions along with the appropriate metabolic testing to identify food sensitivities and pathogenic organisms in the gut. If you’re suffering from these chronic (and sometimes debilitating) conditions, wouldn’t it be worth investigating a different method or school of thought? No drugs, no dangerous surgical interventions, just results??


Nikki struggled with ulcerative colitis flares for a number of years and was hesitant to use the dangerous medicines recommended for her condition. Listen in to the success she had with our program. No drugs, No surgery, Just results!

GUT DYSFUNCTION: When I speak of “The Gut”, I am speaking largely of the stomach and the intestines (we won’t ignore the liver). The Gut is an amazing organ. We all realize how important it is for digestion. However, most of us are woefully unaware of its importance in endocrine and immune system function.

The “Gut” is critically important because it is where your Nervous System, Endocrine System (pancreas, adrenals, thyroid, sex glands, etc), and Immune System all converge.

Your gut is where 4/5 of your immune system lives! Poor gut health means poor immune system function. Poor immune system function opens a Pandora’s Box of health problems including AUTOIMMUNITY, FIBROMYALGIA, MIGRAINE HEADACHES, EQUILIBRIUM DISORDERS, Endocrine Problems, including THYROID DYSFUNCTION, as well as a whole host of others.


Better mood and energy in under 60 days! Relief from chronic fatigue, depression with a 20 pound weight loss!


It is not uncommon for our METABOLIC TESTING to verify multiple gut problems such as:

“At 43, I feel better now then I did when I was 20 years old! The energy, the focus…I am just vibrant and I feel on top of the world. Thanks Dr. Lawrence!”*

- Sherri

“I am a healthcare professional myself and I got totally frustrated with the fact I could not shed any of the weight that I had gained. I started working with Dr. Lawrence at the beginning of August and I've lost almost 40 pounds. My energy levels are way up. I can't say how much I've enjoyed working with her and the results I've gotten, I've been absolutely delighted with."*

"I saw was the half page ad for the Diabetes dinner. I saw it was appointment only and thought they weren't going to have any room, but I called anyway and got in. It was an answer to my prayer. Especially after the first week and my sugar started going down and each week it kept going down. I had a visit with my doctor and my blood sugar was 88 and my A1C was 5.8 which was down from 9.6."*
