Naturopathic consultations

Dr. Kolotinsky’s career in naturopathic medicine began with his personal experience of digestive issues from early childhood, inspiring him to pursue this path. He is dedicated to providing comprehensive and effective treatments that support digestive health without the use of harsh medications, with the ultimate goal of helping his patients achieve optimal wellness for the long term with a tailored treatment plan to meet their individual needs and lifestyles.

What is a Naturopathic Medicine Approach to Digestive Health?

Digestive Health doesn’t always end in the gut. Hormones, stress, and lifestyle factors can all impact your gastrointestinal system. This is why finding the root cause of digestive health is incredibly important.
There is more to treating digestive system disorders than just addressing their symptoms. Naturopathic Medicine seeks to utilize the least invasive and most effective medical technologies and treatments when treating any condition. Dr. Kolotinsky can assist you in finding the solution to digestive system problems you may be suffering from.
To improve the health of your digestive system, Dr. Kolotinsky will use an integrated approach that includes:
  • To combat pathogenic and toxin-producing bacteria, probiotics are often incorporated into the treatment plan, especially for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Crohn’s, and Ulcerative colitis.
  • In individuals affected by Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Crohn’s, and other digestive issues, digestive enzyme supplements can help break down food so the body can absorb it.
  • Acupuncture can help relax the nervous system and strengthen your metabolism.
  • Dr. Kolotinsky will also guide you on diet and food choices for digestive tract disorders. Not every digestive tract disorder responds to all diet interventions. Changing your diet can help you understand what triggers your digestive tract problems and make the necessary changes.
