Gastroenterology

Gastroenterology is the branch of medicine focused on the digestive system and its disorders. This can include conditions of specific organs within the system, but may also relate to secondary illnesses that indirectly effect digestion and the absorption of nutrients.

Problems with digestion and nutrient absorption can be mechanical or function based. This means that issues in one part of the digestive tract can be affecting overall gut health, but that organ dysfunction or chronic illness may be impacting the symptoms that are expressed. Some common G.I. disorders include:

  • Crohn's Disease - an inflammatory bowel disease that causes chronic inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract.
  • Ulcerative Colitis (UC) - a chronic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) known for its inflammation of the large intestine (rectum and colon) where the innermost lining becomes inflamed, and ulcers may form on the surface.

Immunology

The immune system is a highly regulated system and when the balance is disturbed, disease can result. Immune disease research involves studying diseases that are caused by immune system dysfunction. This kind of medical industry research has significance in the development of new therapies (like IV therapy to aid wellness) and treatments that can manage or cure the condition by altering the way the immune system is working.

Immunology therapies include, but are not limited to:
