Dr. Spletzer has a very special focus on prevention and treatment of Traumatic Brain Injuries (mTBI) as well as digestive complaints such as Small Bacterial Intestinal Overgrowth (SIBO). Through extensive research, Dr. Spletzer has found many therapeutic targets in order to promote healing and prevent damage in the brain following a mTBI. He found through experience that SIBO (and IBS) was a common symptoms following mTBI and traced the scientific relationship between the two. By treating and improving digestion, he found that mTBI patients were seeing a reduction in symptoms and they were recovering faster. Since then, he has been using this holistic approach and the gut-brain connection to help all of his patients. In 2016, Dr. Spletzer and three other Naturopathic Physicians co-founded SIBODoctors.ca in order to help patients find qualified Naturopathic Physicians that can test, diagnose, and effectively treat SIBO.

This type of medicine requires trust between doctor and patient, and both need to work together to optimize health and reach the patients ultimate goal. Using evidence based medicine, it is Dr. Spletzer's passion to provide the best environment for healing.
