Health Conditions Our Gastro Focused Naturopathic Doctor in Singapore Can Help With

Dr. Radhika Kamat uses her advanced knowledge in gastrointestinal health, supplements, nutrition, and more to help investigate the root cause and treat your condition. From targeted lab work to a careful examination of your lifestyle, she will help shed light on the root cause of your digestive discomfort. She works closely with her trusted gastroenterologists in Singapore to help with the investigation part where required  to direct  the treatment plan . Here are a few issues that Dr. Kamat helps with, but remember that the list is by no means exhaustive.

Your holistic doctor For Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) in Singapore

Rather than prescribing over the counter medicine like loperamide, naturopathic doctors look for foods, lifestyle elements, and other causes of your symptoms. A naturopathic doctor 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 Naturopathic doctor 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, Dr. Kamat can help you manage this condition and thereby improve quality of life.  She 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. 

Dr. Kamat will take an evidence based approach while recommending natural and holistic treatments  that 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. Dr. Kamat can help you identify root causes and reduce inflammation. Based on root cause, treatments may vary.  Once the root cause is identified, she will recommend treatments to target these areas and also use specific treatment to heal  the gut lining and reduce  inflammation. Diet, 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. She can help you find the cause of your allergic reactions, identify hormonal or other imbalances that may be triggering your immune system, and recommend lifestyle changes, dietary edits, and supplements that can improve your quality of life. Supplements like stinging nettle, butterbur, or quercetin can help, as can homeopathy or nasal irrigation.

Leaky Gut Syndrome

Leaky gut syndrome, or an increase in your intestine’s permeability, can cause a number of symptoms. Bad 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. Many naturopathic doctors will investigate gut health even when dealing with seemingly unrelated symptoms.

A Gastrointestinal Doctor For Children and Adults

Dr. Kamat treats many young children, teens, and adults, and she is sensitive towards the different symptoms and causes of discomfort based on age. Adults may have a high-stress lifestyle and poor diet, and children may have unknown food allergies, sensitivities and intolerances. . Each patient is 100% unique, and Dr. Kamat works to identify the cause of gastrointestinal discomfort and help you live a healthier, more comfortable life.
