After consulting, teaching gastrointestinal physiology at the College of Massage and Hydrotherapy, lecturing at universities, running continuing education programs for NDs, MDs, pharmacists and dieticians and working with patients for over 15 years in the area of gut health and the microbiota, this area has become a passion for Dr Bretz ND (the kind where you read research articles while drying your hair because it’s fun).
From testing options and diagnostics, dietary programs (such as FODMAP – and getting off FODMAP, gluten-free, reflux diets and the IBD-AID program), gut healing, nutrient replenishment, probiotics and prebiotics there are numerous options for your digestive health.
Commonly seen conditions include:
- IBD (including Crohn’s disease, ulcerative and microscopic colitis)
- GERD and reflux
- Small Intestinal Bowel Overgrowth (SIBO)
- Functional Gastrointestinal Disease
- H. pylori infections
- Diverticular disease
- Gallbladder disorders
- Celiac disease
Dr. Bretz ND has worked together with many local family doctors, surgeons and gastroenterologists to compliment their care. Any communication desired between your MD is welcome.
