Digestive Services Complement Chiropractic Care




Reneé Barasch

Digestive Health Solutions has opened a second location inside the ADIO Chiropractic Clinic, located at 316 Peterson Road, in Libertyville. Owner and certified digestive health specialist Reneé Barasch will be offering more diagnostic testing to help restore digestive and health imbalances.

One of the tools Barasch uses to check digestion is a comprehensive 24-hour urinalysis, which requires collection of all urine produced in a normal day. “The 24-hour urinalysis gives me a snapshot into how the body is or isn’t breaking down food. I get a thorough look at digestion, absorption and detoxification,” she says.

She notes that digestive problems can manifest themselves in many ways, including fatigue, a compromised immune system, sleep disorders, headaches, joint and muscle pain, dullness in the hair and skin, and even brittle nails.

“When you start digesting your food better, you actually deliver complete nutrition to the cell,” says Barasch. “When your food is not digested, the brain sends a message to the tongue to ‘get more food,’ and causes us to overeat or eat the wrong foods. The gut is related to brain and can drive cravings.”

Main location: 480 Elm Pl., Ste. 108, Highland Park. For more information, call 847-207-2034 or visit TheTummyWhisperer.com.
