I would like to receive Clínica Omega Zeta's newsletter
Many illnesses, diseases and disorders associated with digestive problems have their origin in the part of the nervous system that controls the digestive system, the enteric nervous system (ENS). This system operates autonomously and independent of the central nervous system and is located in the tissue lining the esophagus, stomach, small intestine and colon.
Although the ENS works independently, it is conveniently connected to the Central Nervous System (CNS). In fact, any process originating in the CNS can affect the digestive system.
So far, medicine has offered us the ability to treat different kind of symptoms, whether it be pain, nausea or diarrhea. However, it has been proved that this method is too often not only ineffective, but it aggravates the disease.
The reason why this methodology does not work is that we ignore the ultimate cause that triggers the disease. How is it possible that with the means available today we still can not identify the origin of a particular disease?
Current technology helps us to find biological abnormalities in 40% of the cases. The problem lies in those cases where, despite the treatment, the condition persists.
Precisely because the biomedical model is unable to give a satisfactory answer to the patient, the biopsychosocial model (BPS) is becoming more and more important. This model includes biological factors, but also takes into account psychosocial factors that can cause or perpetuate a biological disorder.
How we work
Our team makes an integrative evaluation of the patient in order to obtain a diagnosis. We provide satisfactory, effective and permanent solutions, based on knowledge and on integrative tests of the aspects that cause or prolong a dysfunction. For example, in patients with a disorder in the axis that runs from the brain to the gut, and that affect their welfare and quality of life. We also promote quality research to provide satisfactory solutions to our patients.
