Digestive Issues

Gut Revive Method

This 4 month program is designed to help those who want relief from digestive symptoms and support to optimize digestion and help identifying imbalances within the microbiome that can be driving the symptoms. We do this by first lowering inflammation with an elimination diet to identify food sensitivities.

We will then take a deep dive looking at your microbiome through a functional stool test called The GI Map to check for bacteria, viruses, digestive and immune function within the gut so that we can tailor a customized plan for you to support your gut healing journey.  We will also do a blood test called a Wheat Zoomer to check if you have issues with gluten and if a leaky gut is present.

 This program is for you if:

  • You experience stomach pain, belching, bloating, gas, diarrhea and/or constipation.
  • Struggle with joint pain, chronic migraines, fibromyalgia, brain fog and low energy.
  • You have IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), Crohns, Ulcerative Colitis, Celiac and GERD/Heartburn.

Client Successes

“Vanessa was a game changer in allowing me to learn principles to guide my weight loss and healthy lifestyle that would stand the test of time. Dieting had led me to gain and lose weight in yo-yo fashion without sustained results. Vanessa’s guidance taught me how to make changes that I could continue indefinitely while still living a healthy and happy life along the way. I’m so pleased not just with my weight loss but also with my confidence in being able to carry this forward myself” -Fiona F.

"Leap/MRT/working with Vanessa has been life changing and I know I will be able to continue on this journey of healthier eating. I’ve learned a lot about ingredients and other products that I can use to substitute the items that I should avoid. I saw results the first week as I felt less inflammation and symptoms decreased significantly. I’ve also lost 15 lbs in 8 weeks. I am happy that I started the program with Vanessa and that we will continue to work together to achieve my goals!” -Milvia K Vega

Client Successes

"I had no idea how much food sensitivities could influence how I felt. I've gone from having 15 migraine days a month to around 2 days. Going through the MRT/LEAP process with Vanessa was truly eyeopening and life changing! I had always felt like I was a "healthy" eater, I limited sugar, alcohol, caffeine, processed foods, I never drank sodas or artificial sweeteners. But the highly detailed MRT test is unlike any diet, it truly pinpoints what items you should consider avoiding. Using those results and having Vanessa walk me through a food elimination diet and then reintroducing more reactive items slowly was a enormous gift. She made the process easy and was a true cheerleader!"

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you accept insurance?

I don’t accept insurance but do take FSA/HSA. You can also request a superbill that you can submit to your insurance company for potential coverage of services.

Do you accept payment plans?

Yes payment plans are available

Will I receive a meal plan and recipes?

Yes! You will receive a customized meal plan with recipes based on your goals, nutritional needs and test results. Meal plans are used as an educational tool and to help get you started. 

Do you do food sensitivity testing?

I do run a food sensitivity test called Mediator Release Test (MRT) in some patients who feel they are reacting to foods even after going through the elimination diet. It would be an additional cost if this is something I feel would be appropriate to test. Most patients have great success with just an elimination diet however.

How long are the two programs that you offer?

The Rooted Foundations program is 6 weeks long and the Gut Revive Method is 4 months long

If ongoing support and testing is desired after your program has ended, there is a monthly maintaince program available to program graduates.

What's included in the Comprehensive Metabolic Panel test that you run?

The lab orders are customized for each person but some of the labs in the test include: full thyroid panel, iron panel, CBC with differential, lipid panel, fatty acid profile, CRP, glucose, insulin and various micronutrients such as Vitamin B12, Magnesium, Zinc and various thyroid supporting nutrients such as iodine and selenium.
