Doylestown workshop explores six overlooked causes of digestive distress

Dr. Michael J. Kayem, founder of the Center for Functional Health, presents “What’s Up With My Gut? Six Commonly Overlooked Causes of Digestive Distress” 10 to 11:30 a.m. Feb. 16 at Koru Real Health, 4050 Skyron Drive Suite D1, Doylestown.

Digestive issues plague approximately 70 million in North America and this number is only expected to grow. Most individuals suffering from these conditions suffer in silence, not knowing where to turn for answers.

What’s missing is a focus on function. Sometimes imaging is used, but practitioners usually don’t evaluate how well the gut is functioning.

But you aren’t only what you eat – you’re what you eat and what you absorb. And that has to do with how well the gut is functioning. This important factor is part of what will be explained in the workshop.

The workshop will explore why eating healthy isn’t enough, the role your gut plays on your brain and mental health, why almost all disease starts and ends in the gut, immediate actions steps that you can take to feel amazing again, and the exact testing the center uses to reverse years of suffering for its patients.

Kaye is a longtime resident of Chalfont and has been practicing for close to 30 years. He is the author of “A Boomers Guide To Pain” and is a contributing author for “101 Great Ways to Improve Your Health.”
