Restore Gut Health & Take Back Your Day-to-Day Comfort

Bloating. Cramping. Fatigue. The delicate gastrointestinal tract is a source of discomfort for many patients that we see at the Wellness Center At Donaldson Plastic Surgery. Low microbial diversity and an imbalance of good/bad bacteria can severely disrupt your daily life in ways that you may have never thought of before. Dr. Marguerite Weston is an experienced gut health doctor that will work with you – as an individual – to understand what is causing this digestive disparity and then create a sustainable plan to help directly address the root causes with the primary objective of helping you feel better every day! 

What We Can Actually Do About It


To achieve maximum comfort and wellness, we strive to strike the perfect balance of bacteria. To do so, we:

  • Create a lower stress lifestyle
  • Discover any underlying food allergies and sensitivities
  • Explore various diet options (including the “elimination diet” and an anti-inflammatory diet”
  • Gauge current digestive function and pro-enzyme activation
  • Identify any immune dysfunction and chronic, low-grade inflammation
  • Implement relevant tests to help pinpoint the source(s) of your discomfort and pain
  • Supplement lifestyle changes with probiotics, prebiotics, pancreatic enzymes and natural botanicals
  • Write custom “exercise prescriptions” to help increase flexibility and decrease bloating

The Most Common Conditions We Treat

  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Celiac Disease
  • Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Ulcerative Colitis
  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)

Signs & Symptoms That Indicate Bad Gut Health

  • A recent shift in weight
  • A loss of appetite
  • Excessive bloating
  • Consistent fatigue
  • Upset stomach
  • Acid reflux
  • Pain and/or cramps

What Causes Poor Gut Health & Discomfort?

  • Aging
  • Alcohol and drug use
  • A high dairy diet
  • A low fiber diet
  • Dehydration
  • Environmental factors (including housing, pollution and climate)
  • Genetics
  • High-stress lifestyle
  • Over-the-counter and prescription drug use
  • Poor sleep health

While there may be a primary driver behind the discomfort, many patients often feel compounding negative effects based on a few factors combined at once. For example: a patient may have been able to handle the occasional laxative use, but as they have aged, their gut microflora may respond negatively to the medication.

The Omnipotent Microbiome: How The Digestive System Affects Your Entire Body

The gut is perhaps the single most important system in the body when it comes to understanding how we tick. Beyond digestion, this incredible network of organs, microbes and flora works to regulate weight, boost immune function and even regulate brain chemistry. When the gut becomes imbalanced, it does more than make our stomach hurt! It can also leave us feeling sluggish, anxious, restless and simply not ourselves anymore. 

Dr. Weston will work with you directly to design a custom dietary and lifestyle plan with the goal of properly balancing the various types of bacteria in the gut, allowing you to feel more comfortable, more energetic and more yourself – for the long haul!
