Southwest functional medicine uses a unique blend of functional medicine*, nutritional wellness, and diagnostic testing to provide a personalized plan designed to assist patients with digestive disorders and reduce their symptoms to improve their overall quality of life. 

Digestive Complications 

Contrary to popular belief by the number of advertisements seen, digestive discomfort and digestive disorders are not normal. Digestive disorders are a signal your body is sending to communicate with you that there is another or underlying condition affecting the digestive tract or other organ systems. 

Those who experience digestive disorders or digestive discomfort may have been diagnosed with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), celiac disease, constipation, or frequent loose stools. Common symptoms of a digestive disorder or digestive discomfort include: 

  • Constipation 
  • Bloating
  • Diarrhea 
  • Cramping 
  • Frequent abdominal pain 
  • And more 

Digestive health is linked to gut health. Gastrointestinal health plays a large and important role in our body. Without proper gut health, we see symptoms of digestive disorders increase greatly as well as inflammation, headaches, and other issues beginning to arise. 


How Can Southwest Functional Medicine Help You 

We understand that talking about digestive issues is not people’s pass time, but it reveals a lot about what is occurring in your system and is critical when it comes to overall health. Digestive complications lead to a lack of nutrients being absorbed by the body of toxins being released back in the bloodstream. At Southwest Functional medicine we take these symptoms seriously and create a personalized plan designed just for you. Our programs are designed based on your one on one appointments with our physicians, your detailed history, and diagnostic tests. We will assist you in nutritional wellness and identify the triggers that are causing your digestive flare-ups. 


Functional Medicine* and Integrative Wellness requires doctors to engage in further education outside of their core training and within their scope of practice. 

*Additional Education: M.S.A.C.P – Licensed in Texas & New Mexico. Scope of Practice Governed and Determined by State License & State Board Rules & Regulations.
