Digestive health problems are all too common, right across the globe. With today being World Digestive Health Day, we’re highlighting some of the biggest digestive health problems that people suffer with, as well as discussing how to help and relieve the symptoms, and when you should start to seek professional medical advice.
Almost half of the population have at least one digestive symptom at any one time, the most common being abdominal pains and cramps, changes in bowl habit including both constipation and diarrhea, and indigestion.
Most digestive health problems will have food as the root of the cause. You can test your intolerance levels with a simple and effective test from TYI Labs – our lab technicians will examine your hair sample and test it against up to 600 food and non-food items. We will then sent out a full, comprehensive report of your results, highlighting exactly which foods you have an intolerance to. You can then begin a reduction or elimination diet to see if this eases your symptoms.
You should always bare in mind that if you’re taking prescribed medications that aren’t alleviating your symptoms, or that are causing an upset stomach, then you should tell your doctor immediately. Digestive symptoms are generally harmless, however they can have a serious impact on a persons mental health, and can stop you from doing the things that you enjoy.
A bout of diarrhea or cramps due to a food intolerance will make a person feel as though they can’t leave the house or enjoy things like special occasions. If you test your intolerance levels with TYI Labs, we will provide the support you need to tackle your intolerances head-on and stop them from taking control of your body.
If you’re struggling to understand your symptoms and have been experiencing them for a while, you should seek professional medical advice in the first instance. However, if you have already spoken to your doctor and you’re looking for alternative methods, then our tests could be the answer you’re looking for.
We also have an expert team of customer service advisors, who are available via Live Chat 24 hours a day, Monday – Friday. If you are struggling to decide which test is for you, then they will be able to advise you further.
