A nutrition program which includes individualized food sensitivity testing and follow up nutrition counseling to help you support your gut health

A 6-week program which includes individualized testing analyzing how your body reacts to the food you eat and follow up nutrition counseling to help you implement change and promote your own gut health.

You don’t know why you feel sick after you eat. You are confused by what to eat and what not to eat. You’ve been told you don’t have food allergies and your intestines look normal. However, you don’t feel normal.

Take the guesswork out of it. This test will help you implement a targeted approach to your diet. Over time, you will learn how to liberalize your diet to eat a variety of foods without the fear of being sick or living with a restricted diet.

As a result of this 6-week Food Sensitivity program, you will
