Have you tried one probiotic after another and still can’t seem to resolve your digestion conditions?
You may be taking the wrong probiotics or, worse yet, taking ones that make your digestion worse.
Or, maybe you have taken one digestive aid after another to try to resolve heartburn, gas, bloat, and chronic constipation. Nothing seems to help.
So, you try one elimination diet after another, and now you are afraid of food. You have begun blaming all of your symptoms on what you just ate?
It might be time to find out just what is going on in your gut. And address your imbalances with the right nutrition plan and probiotics/prebiotics that work.

The Gut is Ground Zero When it Comes to Our Health
Most symptoms are due to poor gut health or what is called “leaky gut”.
Leaky gut can occur over the years as the microbiome can be impacted by everything from medications, chronic stress, and poor diet.
Healthy Digestion Programs
Poor digestion can be uncomfortable, frustating, and in some cases totally disrupt your life. Not to mention gas and bloat can be totally embarassing. Doctors are much help either and often just recommend yet one more over the counter drug or in some cases a prescription.
Healing your digestion starts with getting down to the underlying cause whether that is SIBO, histamine intolerance, or microbiome imbalances. Hormones too can come into play.
My programs start with 6-Week Digestion Tune-up giving you the tools to get to the underlying cause while relieving you of your digestive symptoms.
My 6-Week programs starts by evaluating your digestion, comprehensive food plan that targets your digestive health, and guidance to keep you on track. No one said that restrictive dieting was fun or easy – but with my plan you can easily stay on track with menus, culinary tips, and more.
Comprehensive Digestive Evaluation
Your digestive evalulation gets down to the underlying cause of your digestive conditions. From there you will start on your healing journey with laser focused dietary and lifestyle recommendations.
Nutrition Road Maps & Guides
Nutrition road maps are the key to your success! Road maps are a one sheet go to's rather than cumbersome and endless food lists. Everything from histamine foods avoid to oxalate foods to include.
Sure, there a ton of recipes out there but won't you just want to know how to adjust your favorite recipes instead? Being a restrictive diet like FODMAP is difficult at best. Learning how to adapt recipes and knowing what foods you can substitute is the key to success.
Optional Lab Testing – Microbiome
If you are still struggling after 6-weeks on my program, it might be time to consider microbiome testing. Check out my Integrative Testing for more information.
What is Microbiome Testing?
Microbiome testing is looking at what is really going in your gut. Stool testing at your doctor's office is just looking at parasite and possible occult blood. New microbiome testing uses the DNA of bacteria to determines the balance of our bacterial strains, digestive enzymes, and if you do have a parasite.
By know what is going on in your gut microbiota, I am able to put together a targeted probiotic and prebiotic protocol that addresses your microbiome imbalances. And, help you achieve optimal digestion.
How Does it Work?
Comprenhensive Health History/Profile
After you booked your package, you will begin your healing journey with laser-focused recommendations to start resolving your digestion symptoms. If you are also struggling with skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis, your evaluation will include natural and holistic approaches to start healing your skin.
Review of Test Results
If stool or other microbiome testing is recommended, these test results will be reviewed with you. From there you will get your personalized food plan, and dietary supplement protocol.
In most cases, supplement protocol will need to slowly added into you health plan due to intolerances. As you build tolerance and your digestion improves, you will move forward. This usually takes 4-6 weeks.
Consulting – Guiding You to Success!
The key to success in my programs is bi-weekly consults for at least 2-3 months. During our time together we will be tweaking your program for you to get maximum benefit.
Sometimes you may have a set back in your progress. Or, you may have challenges that is impeding your success. Working together we overcome those challenges assuring success.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do you take insurance?
At this point I do not take insurance and that is for two reasons. Most insurance companies do not cover nutrition consulting. The second reason is this allows me to make the best recommendation for you rather the insurance dictating those decisions as often seen with conventional healthcare.
I do, however, work with you and your healthcare provider to help cover some of the costs of lab testing by providing lab request letters that you can take to your healthcare provider.
Do you offer weight loss programs?
I have extensive experience with weight loss clients and over that time have learned that stubborn weight loss is really a symptom of hormonal imbalances. Currently I am updating my weight loss/metabolic program that will include genomic testing, comprehensive metabolic blood panel testing, and hormone testing. My metabolic program are for those struggling to lose weight depsite adhering to a weight loss diet plan and exercising.
