Scar Tissue and your Digestion: How scar tissue affects your digestion and what to do about it

By   0 Comments

My eldest daughter, Sia, was born by C-section. In addition to all the emotional turmoil of having a very different birth experience than I’d hoped for, it left me with a big ugly scar.

I’ll admit: I was most concerned about the scar for aesthetic reasons. But I’ve come to learn that scar tissue is more than a vanity concern. It’s also impacting my digestive processes and function.

In this week’s video, my colleague and dear friend Dr. Caitlin Capistran, explains how scar tissue impacts digestive function and then shows us some DIY techniques for things we can do at home to both heal the scar and minimize its impact.
