Uncomfortable, inconvenient, embarrassing — these are all terms to describe digestive problems. Although everyone has an occasional upset stomach and most minor digestive issues go away fairly quickly, chronic digestive inflammation can cause much longer-lasting gastrointestinal discomfort.
Our team here at Wellness Nashville in Franklin, Tennessee, can help you optimize your health and body function, reducing inflammation in your digestive tract and elsewhere in your body. We might espouse the benefits of NAD therapy, but we also know that wellness isn’t one size fits all. Our treatment plans are tailored to address your specific needs.
Your immune system is your body’s defense system. When it senses an injury, virus, bacteria, or other threat, the immune system releases antibodies to fight off the danger. Those antibodies trigger inflammation, which usually manifests as swelling, pain, and occasional loss of function.
Most of the time, inflammation subsides when the threat to your health is gone. In some cases, your inflammation persists and becomes chronic. Though chronic inflammation can begin as a healthy immunologic response, in other cases, it develops because of autoimmune disorders, chronic stress, or exposure to environmental toxins.
Chronic inflammation in the digestive tract
Your digestive tract is vulnerable to inflammation. Symptoms vary depending on the cause and severity of your condition. They’re usually intermittent with periods of normal function between flare-ups. Common digestive tract inflammation symptoms include:
- Decreased appetite
- Irregular bowel movements
- Bloody stools
- Abdominal pain/cramps
- Weight loss
In addition to these uncomfortable symptoms, chronic digestive inflammation can interfere with nutrient absorption, which leads to other health problems.
NAD stands for Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide. It’s an essential compound that supports optimal function throughout your body. As you age, your NAD levels decline, contributing to declining cellular health, low energy levels, and decreased metabolism.
We offer NAD therapy to enhance your overall health by supporting optimal cellular function. It reduces inflammation throughout your body, alleviating many uncomfortable symptoms.
