4 Simple Ways To Improve Your Digestion Without Popping Pills

Welcome to Modern Health KC

If you’ve been diagnosed with a digestive disorder or suspect you might have one, you’re probably feeling frustrated, overwhelmed, scared, and confused about what you should do to treat it.
Maybe you’ve already seen multiple health care providers and spent thousands of dollars on expensive supplements and treatment plans, but you still don’t have answers and still feel “off”…
If so, you’re not alone.

So many of the women and families that come to see me have struggled with debilitating digestive issues for years and through my extensive training as a chiropractic physician, board-certified clinical nutritionist, and board-certified functional medicine practitioner I have been able to give them the tools, resources, treatment plan, and support they need to heal fully from the inside out using a modern functional medicine approach!

If you’re ready to learn how you can heal your painful digestive issues without taking harmful medications or following dangerous protocols, then I would love to speak with you and hear your story!

Chat with me and ask me any questions that you might have during a FREE 20-minute phone conversation! My gift to you.

Why wait? The time is now to start your healing journey.

What Our Happy Patients Are Saying…

I am feeling better by the day and I seriously cried one day because I was so happy. Diet has completely changed to what you said. I am taking the three supps daily. My bowels, stomach, and energy are shifting by the day – I can feel it. So so so happy!


There’s so much to unpack in this review, as a I can’t say enough about Dr. Kerri Howerton & Modern Health KC, **LIFE CHANGING**. My journey has been difficult in dealing with gut issues since childhood, a diagnosis of diverticulitis in 2015 and adrenal fatigue/burnout. It has been a very frustrating and lonely road until I realized the treasure I had in my friendship with Dr. Howerton. I had no ideas what functional medicine even meant and the complete disadvantage of simply not knowing what it truly was. She has been an amazing Dr. in this journey to heal my gut & adrenal issues. She implemented immediate action plans that changed my life.


It’s been great even have days that I have bowel movement twice a day. That’s never happened before.
