Digestive problems are among the most common health problems in our society.  Many people suffer daily from bloating, gas, pain, acid reflux, and abdominal discomfort.  Many people are unable to find relief, even with powerful and dangerous medications.   Its not what we eat but what we absorb that actually nourishes our bodies.  Simply chewing  and swallowing food starts the process of digestion but it is by no means the end of the story.  The stomach, pancreas, gallbladder and intestines must all be functioning well for digestion to optimize.  The digestive tract is more than a 26 foot long tube that feeds us, it also houses our microbiom that we depend on for survival.

Listen to Dr. Rostenberg explain how to optimize your digestion naturally using proven diet and nutrition strategies.  If you or someone you know is suffering from challenging digestive problems, please share this video!  For help with improving digestion and reducing chronic digestive problems, you may contact Dr. Rostenberg at 208-322-7755 or redmountainclinic@gmail.com.

    Hi! I follow you on Facebook and have enjoyed a lot of your posts. I have MTHFR and dopamine responsive dystonia. I do feel like a lot of my problems might originate from my gut. Where is your office located? I would love to be able to make a appointment.

      Hi Jenny,

      Thank you for taking time to contact me. My apologies for a slow response we have been dealing with a new website and hiring and training new staff the last couple of weeks. Movement disorders such as dystonia are often complex but there is a lot that can be done biochemically by balancing the methylation pathways. My office is physically located in Boise, ID, and we see patients in-office 5 days a week. While most of our patients are within a few hours drive of Boise, last month we had patients come from Kansas City, MO, and Fort Collins, CO. I would love to help you optimize your genes so you can get more dopamine in your brain naturally and optimize your body. The gut plays a major role in this entire puzzle since the products made in the gut influence and talk to our genes. There are 10x as many cells of bacteria and 100x more bacterial DNA in our bodies that human cells and DNA. It really is the gut that allows us function at our best. Please let me know if you have any questions regarding MTHFR, methylation, gut and brain health. Your best bet is to contact my office and set up a complimentary consult to speak to me for about 10 minutes. This will allow us to meet each other on the phone and find the best way to work together. Many patients work solely over the phone, but in cases of movement disorders and neurological concerns there really is no substitute for an in-depth physical and functional neurological exam. If you would like to speak with me on the phone please contact my office at redmountainclinic@gmail.com or call 208-322-7755. My staff will get you on my schedule. If you would like to learn more about my office and clinic please visit http://www.redmountainclinic.com.

      Yours in Health,

    Unfortunately I have been taking a PPI for literally years, I experience no chest pain but a lump in my throat when not taking it. On the other hand I have all the other problems that you stated will arrive from taking this drug. Is it possible for me to get off. My major problem is extreme constipation; I am taking, at this stage, many laxative daily to achieve some stool, which turns into diarrhea. I am in bad shape at this point. Sixty-five yrs old, retired at sixty four due to this problem. tried DGL and taking PPI every other day. I eat alot of vegetables 6 oz for lunch and six oz salad for dinner plus protein and fruit. No sugar, or flour and at this point no grain , experiencing a lot of bloating. 707.694.4256
    Thank you so much

      Hi Mary,

      Thank you for your comment. People who take PPI drugs long term have a difficult time finding a way off the medication, but patients have been successful in that effort. It really takes a big-picture, 30,000-foot view approach to your body and your health. So the short answer is YES, it is possible to live without PPI drugs every day. You need a customized approach and we can help you figure out how to improve your digestion and optimize your health and your genes. Please contact us at 208-322-7755 and redmountainclinic@gmail.com if you have any questions.

      Thank You,

      Dr. Rostenberg

    Start with stomach acid ! I’ve also read that melatonin can effect stomach acid. Pineal gland weekends with age and light disturbance are some contributing factors. Low melatonin leads to adrenal fatigue which leads to depleted zinc and less stomach acid.
