Are cravings ruling your life?

Healthy Life.

Healthy Gut.

GI disorders affect more people in the United States than those who suffer from heart disease, AIDS and cancer combined. Next to the common cold, GI discomfort is the most common reason people seek medical advice or turn to over-the-counter remedies. Over 74% of Americans have lived with some type of GI-related symptoms for more than six months:

The importance of gut health.

- Heartburn
- Bloating & gas
- constipation
- diarrhea
- SIBO / Dysbiosis
- Leaky gut
- parasites

- Brain Fog
- Stress, anxiety, depression
- acne, eczema, psoriasis
- chronic fatigue
- allergies, asthma
- thyroid disorders
- diabetes

Our team has many tools to assess and treat GI dysfunction. One of the popular functional medicine approaches for GI-related conditions is the 5R Approach: Remove, Replace, Re-Inoculate, Repair & Rebalance.

The Remove step restricts toxic, pro-inflammatory and potentially allergic foods from the diet, and eliminates harmful organisms. The traditional approach is to add a prescription medication to the body, but often the best medicine for our GI tract is in elimination and allowing the system to rest.

After the critical Remove step, our team can then help you address the need to Replace with digestive aids, Re-Inoculate with probiotics, and Repair a damaged GI tract.

If you’re tired of shuffling from doctor to doctor without ever getting to the root of your chronic health issues, and if you want to optimize your health holistically through sound lifestyle modifications and mind-body techniques without unnecessary medications, then our program may just be what you’ve been looking for all along. Just know that it takes a serious commitment to make the lifestyle changes necessary to transform your health once and for all.

In terms of supplements, we may recommend certain pharmaceutical-grade supplements for a limited time to support your body’s innate healing process. But long-term, we believe that supplements can’t make up for a poor lifestyle.

Ahead of the initial paid appointment, you will complete our extensive background history forms so that we can properly review your history and lab results ahead of your appointment. During the appointment, we will together review your completed intake form, and medical history so that we can arrive at a baseline assessment of your overall health and nutritional status, creating a personalized treatment protocol.

What should I expect from the initial appointment?

"I was experiencing stomach issues of being tired, bloated, gassy, bowel irregularities, fatigue, brain fog, and the inability to lose weight. I had my yearly physical to check specifically my thyroid and was told it was normal and it would be checked again in a year. My thyroid was on the higher end and was not happy with "the wait a year and recheck." I was tired of feeling exhausted and not having enough energy to get through the day. I contacted Lisa about starting a prebiotic to help deal with my stomach issues and learned from that discussion that these issues I was experiencing were all related to my thyroid as well as food sensitivities. When I received my food sensitivity tests results, I also learned that I was dealing with Candida. After learning what foods I needed cut out due to sensitivities as well as for the Candida protocol, I started feeling better within about 1 1/2 to 2 weeks, my initial symptoms were greatly decreasing, and I felt like I was not just existing. In the 3 months that I have been working on all of these issues with Lisa, I have learned alternate eating habits to support my gut and my thyroid issues and what questions to ask my general doctor about my thyroid. Lisa checks in to see how everything is going and gives suggestions on food substitutions and recipes. She is very knowledgeable and explains how the whole body works together on these issues. I feel like a new person."

"When I started the 6 month program, I was unable to eat without nausea and stomach pain. I was wanting to be able to eat again and be able to function without tiredness, and gain back energy. After discovering food sensitivities, Lisa guided me through the foods that were causing me discomfort. She also helped with my brain fog that I was unaware I even had. I feel so much better without the stomach pain and bloating and was able to gain back some weight and strength. My biggest overall change is my eating habits. I am eating cleaner than ever before! Lisa is understanding and passionate about health and nutrition. She is very caring about your overall health and uncovers unique root causes.
I’ve learned a lot from Lisa about getting healthy and gaining back my energy."
