A New Take On Health

Dr. Burkhart is one of only two physicians in the U.S. who is also a registered dietitian and trained in integrative medicine. Thus, she approaches problems from a unique perspective using traditional medicine, nutrition, and integrative medicine. When asked what she does for a living, she often replies, ” In my office, I help people struggling for answers as well as those looking for a different type of health care. Outside of the office, I write about topics that address health in ways others may not have.”

 

Areas Of Special Interest

Gut Health / Chronic Digestive Problems

Bloating, reflux/heartburn, nausea and other chronic stomach problems can be challenging. Gut health affects immune function, mental health, weight control, heart health and more.

SIBO

Stands for Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth. It causes bloating, fatigue, brain fog, and other symptoms. It often goes undiagnosed and is increasingly common. It can also accompany histamine intolerance

Celiac Disease

Dr. Burkhart is an expert on celiac disease, an autoimmune condition affecting 1 in 100 people. If affected, eating gluten causes long term health complications. Eighty percent of people with celiac disease do not even know they have it. Click here for a free article to take to your provider to educate them on celiac disease.

Gluten Sensitivity

Dr. Burkhart is a specialist in gluten-related disorders. These occur in people who don’t have celiac disease but get sick from eating gluten. These are even more common than celiac disease.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Prolonged episodes of diarrhea and/or constipation are often labeled as IBS. There is frequently an undiagnosed, underlying reason for these ongoing symptoms.

Low FODMAP Diet

Modifies the amount of certain carbohydrates/sugars that are eaten. These sugars are common culprits in many digestive disorders. Following a low FODMAP diet can be difficult to follow without guidance.

A new review article in The Lancet on the topic of iron deficiency recommends " Screening for celiac disease should be routinely considered when someone is iron deficient". I can't say that loud enough. I so often see iron deficiency ignored, and supplements given without asking "Why?". This can delay diagnosis for a very long time as this may be an early symptom.

While there are many reasons for iron deficiency, one that is not considered often enough is celiac disease. If you or a loved one are iron deficient, and celiac disease is a concern, here is the link to the article. Doctors like research papers and may be more likely to listen when a request for a celiac test is made.
