GI Disorders

Non-narcotic care for irritable bowel and GI Disorders.

Millions of people suffer from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), gastrointestinal, or GI disorders, abdominal pain and a plethora of uncomfortable, embarrassing and debilitating symptoms. Those who have not found successful treatment elsewhere see Hunter Yost, MD.

Dr. Yost uses functional and nutritional medicine to treat GI Disorders such as:GI disorders

  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Celiac disease
  • Gluten sensitivity
  • Intestinal gas, bloating, constipation & diarrhea
  • Abdominal cramps & pain
  • Loss of appetite
  • Nervous stomach
  • Intestinal distress
  • Mucous in stools
  • GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease)
  • Nausea

IBS is considered a functional bowel syndrome and a motility disorder of the bowel. It affects more women than men but also children, teens and seniors. The intestinal distress of IBS results in many lost work days and school days. Older terms for IBS include irritable colon, spastic colon or spastic bowel.

Dietary changes are extremely important for people with IBS and GI disorders. Dr. Yost uses specific, noninvasive diagnostic tests to guide each patient’s unique treatment plan. He has had success identifying the causes of IBS/GI disorders using a variety of diagnostics.

Dr. Yost uses state-of-the-art stool testing for good and bad intestinal bacteria, inflammatory markers and other components of digestive health to help improve GI functioning for a wide variety of GI Disorders.

He also evaluates biochemical makeup, family heritage, environmental and chemical sensitivity, metabolism and lifestyle considerations. And he spends considerable face-to-face time with each patient. Typical visits are 30 to 60 minutes or longer, which allows Dr. Yost to focus more completely on fewer patients and achieve better results.
