IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS BEFORE
CONSULTING WITH DR. SALT
Dr. Salt ~ IBS & Gut Microbiome Solutions ~ specializes in the care of those suffering with enteropathy. enteropathy is THE TRIAD OF:
1. ABDOMINAL PAIN/DISCOMFORT
2. GAS (ABDOMINAL BLOATING, DISTENTION)
3. BOWEL DYSFUNCTION (CONSTIPATION, DIARRHEa OR BOTH).
Enteropathy refers to disease, disorders, or dysfunction involving the small intestine, colon, or both.
The most common enteropathy diagnoses include irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), gut microbiome dysbiosis, and leaky gut. Most commonly, the initial diagnosis is IBS, but there are many other diagnoses and associated conditions that must be considered. Thinking and consideration of these "differential diagnoses" (other causes of and conditions associated with enteropathy) stops with the IBS diagnosis. Commonly more than one are present,
so opportunities for treatment and healing are not considered.
Below, is Dr. Salt's Map of the many causes of and conditions associated with enteropathy, upon which his new e-learning program is based:
Understanding IBS, SIBO, Gut Microbiome Dysbiosis & Leaky Gut: An Integrative Gastroenterologist Guides You to Empowerment, to which all of his patients have free access (a $549 value).
Dr. Salt's IBS & Gut Microbiome Solutions is a direct care gastroenterology practice; insurance is not accepted.
This means that insurance, Medicaid, and Medicare are not accepted and Dr. Salt will be considered "out of network." Payment by credit card, debit card, check, or cash can be made at the time of the visit.
Dr. Salt of IBS & Gut Microbiome Solutions does not perform procedures any longer, such as endoscopy and colonoscopy, AND HE DOES NOT SEE HOSPITAL PATIENTS ANY LONGER.
However, Dr. Salt can refer to any gastroenterologist requested by the patient if procedures are needed, and he can recommend and refer to gastroenterologists if the patient has no preference. He is committed to outpatient care of those suffering with enteropathy. If you have a serious enteropathy, such as Crohn's disease or colitis, you should have an established gastroenterologist, since Dr. Salt does not prescribe immune modulating drugs, such as azathioprine or 6-mercaptopurine or biologic drugs, such as Remicade or Humira. He does not manage emergencies or prescribe either opioids or benzodiazepines.
