Minnesota Eosinophilic Esophagitis Doctor
Holistic & Natural Solutions for Eosinophilic Esophagitis
Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE) is a chronic inflammatory disorder in the esophagus caused by an over-accumulation of white blood cells called eosinophils. This condition is usually triggered by allergens or intolerance to certain foods. EoE symptoms include difficulty swallowing, chest pains, heartburn, and acid reflux.
We offer holistic and natural solutions for Eosinophilic Esophagitis. At the Pain and Brain Virtual Healing Center, we will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs. We use a combination of natural remedies, lifestyle changes, and dietary modifications to help you find relief from your symptoms.
Lifestyle and Diet Changes
An elimination diet is one of the most effective ways to treat Eosinophilic Esophagitis. An elimination diet involves avoiding food items that trigger allergic reactions. This is a helpful way to pinpoint the exact foods that cause EoE symptoms, which involves removing certain foods from your diet and adding them back slowly. Common culprits linked to EoE include gluten, dairy, soy, peanuts, eggs, and corn.
Dr. Fors also utilizes IgE food allergy blood testing to pinpoint problematic foods causing IgE reactions. Along with this a Comprehensive Digesting Stool analysis and Microbiome mapping is utilized to access gut health, and look for other contributing factors.
Stress and anxiety can also exacerbate EoE symptoms. Stress management techniques such as meditation, yoga, or deep breathing can help reduce the recurrence of EoE symptoms. Maintaining a positive mindset, getting enough sleep, and avoiding overworking can further alleviate the condition. An Adrenal Stress four point Cortisol test is utilized to evaluate how stress is effecting your physiology.
Natural Supplements and Remedies for Treating EoE
Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that balance the gut microbiome and ease inflammation. Studies have shown the effectiveness of probiotics in the management of EoE. Probiotics strengthen the immune system and help reduce allergic reactions that trigger this EoE disorder.
The need for probiotics and the specific species needed are determined by the stool microbiome map testing. The comprehensive digesting stool test also checks multiple biomarkers of gastro-intestinal health.
Herbal remedies are also potent in providing relief from EoE symptoms. For instance, slippery elm, licorice, and marshmallow root have anti-inflammatory properties that soothe the esophagus lining. Turmeric is another powerful herb shown to reduce inflammation and promote healing. Patients should consult with a healthcare provider before using any herbs.
