Digestive Health

It is the season for grilling, picnics, and outdoor fun; in other words, hot dogs, burgers and ice cream.  Did you know getting over the counter medications for that upset stomach instead of good digestive enzymes can create imbalances of hydrochloric acid that can lead to heartburn and ulcers?

In a nutshell, there are three components to digestion:

The first component of digestion is hydrochloric acid which is mainly composed of Zinc and B vitamins.  This helps us digest proteins.  

The second component of digestion is pancreatic enzymes that primarily digest carbohydrates.  These enzymes are created with vitamins and minerals that include Magnesium, Zinc and Chromium.  

The third component to digestion is the emulsification of fats which is done by the liver and gallbladder.  The liver produces bile which is stored in the gallbladder and when we eat fatty foods, the gallbladder pushes out a large amount of bile.  One of the best ways to make more bile is to eat beets. 

Digestive Support:

Burping after eating fatty foods, this symptom is most commonly shown in people who have bile deficiency. 

Heartburn and Acid Reflux After Eating Protein, these symptoms are most commonly shown in people with hydrochloric acid deficiency.

Heartburn and Acid Reflux After Eating Carbohydrates, these symptoms are most commonly shown in people with pancreatic enzyme deficiency.

Ulcers, this symptom is commonly shown in people with H. Pylori, a bacterial overgrowth.

Contact Dr. Venuti if you experience any of these problems.  Some simple supplements could help you!

Dr. Nick is great!!! I always thought Chiropractors were quacks, I was GREATLY mistaken!! I have had some neck issues and back issues over the years and my regular doctor has only prescribed me muscle relaxors, which only masked the pain. I don't like taking them, because I don't like taking drugs and the sluggish effects they bring you. I have taken these muscles relaxors and still have the same problems, nothing had been resolved! I am a very active person and I don't choose to be taking all this medication and having the horrible side effects and left with the same problem. Going to Dr. Nick has been amazing! He has really helped me and helped with the pain and has effectively solved my issues and has brought back the moblity to my neck and back! I am back to all the activities I have not been able to do prior! He is very easy to talk to and is a great listener and he has given me great exercises to do along with the treatment. My pain has ceased and I feel great!! I strongly reccommend Dr. Nick and will continue to refer him to everyone I can!----J.P.


Dr. Venuti and his staff are incredible.  They are friendly, professional, and really LISTEN to your concerns.  They really work as a team to treat your muscle/spine issues.  I used to be skeptical of chiropractic care, but not anymore!----S.V.
