 Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) in Singapore

Rather than prescribing over the counter meds like loperamide, naturopathic doctors look for foods, lifestyle elements, and other causes of your symptoms. A naturopath may recommend a low FODMAP diet, an elimination diet to find the trigger.  Use herbs and other nutritional supplements to regulate bowel movements depending on the root cause. A licensed Naturopath will provide evidence based recommendations on herbs or supplements that are appropriate for each individual. It is always advised that you take supplements under medical supervision.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)

Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) such as Ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease can disrupt your lifestyle, hurt your confidence, and negatively impact your quality of life. You may be suffering from inflammation or sores along the inside of your colon or severe discomfort in your upper gastrointestinal tract. From consistent diarrhea to fatigue, cramping, and limited appetite, If you are looking for an alternative or complimentary approach, Naturopathic medicine can help you manage along side your existing medical treatments thereby providing a improved quality of life.  Dr Kamat works closely with Gastroenterologists in Singapore and may refer to them as needed in cases where there is a need for immediate attention and further evaluation. 

First and foremost, it’s important that we identify foods that are crucial to be eliminated in your diet. 

Dr. Kamat may recommend withdrawing certain foods based on your intolerance evaluation and suggest further dietary changes. She may also recommend herbs,  nutritional formulations and homeopathy that are prescribed based on the individual requirements. 

Having a strong evidence based approach in natural and holistic treatments would help you in recovery and experience fewer gastrointestinal symptoms.

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)

GERD is a chronic condition that can often be caused by dietary and lifestyle factors. Stress is a huge factor these days that can disrupt one’s digestive and circadian rhythm. Infections such as H.pylori can lead to acute GERD.  Certain medications can disrupt the lining leading to GERD.  Naturopathic medicine can help you identify root cause and reduce inflammation. Based on root cause, treatments may vary.  Once the root cause is identified, specific treatments will be recommended and also certain specifics  may be used to heal  the gut lining or reduce  inflammation. Targetted diets, herbs, nutritional supplements, lifestyle changes are the modalities used. 

Food Intolerance and Allergies

Do you suffer from chronic allergies? Whether you have food related allergies or other reactions, give Dr. Kamat a call. Naturopathic medicine takes a different approach by tackling the root cause- either hormonal, gut imbalances, food or environmental triggers etc. 

Treatments include lifestyle changes, dietary edits, and supplements/herbs that can improve your quality of life. Supplements like stinging nettle, butterbur, or quercetin  etc are basic examples. There is  as homeopathy or other herbals may be used. 

Leaky Gut Syndrome

Leaky gut syndrome, or an increase in your intestine’s permeability, can cause a number of symptoms. Imbalanced bacteria, yeast and fungus, certain illnesses, medications, frequent infections and environmental toxins disrupt the gut barrier and make it leaky enough to allow certain components of foods to enter the bloodstream. This can lead to a myriad of health issues from autoimmune to skin problems and allergies. Naturopathic doctors will investigate gut health even when dealing with seemingly unrelated symptoms.
