On the search for answers about joint pain and stiffness in her hands, Susie came across functional medicine and our clinic. While she was aware of anti-inflammatory diets and other evidence-based interventions, she was struggling to find the right combination that worked best for her. By treating her—not her labs—we were able to provide her with answers to her initial questions, an actionable and effective plan, and get her symptoms under control.

Did you know that there are over 100 healthy foods rich in prebiotics? Prebiotics help feed the good bacteria in our gut and have been shown to reduce inflammation, repair leaky gut syndrome, bolster short-chain fatty acid production, improve constipation and mood, prevent migraines, and so much more. While I advise to eat the widest array possible from the food list we provide, I also exercise caution as consuming too many prebiotic-rich foods (especially with a sensitive gut) may increase symptoms of gas, bloating, and diarrhea. Watch the video to learn more about prebiotic foods and if they can help get your gut microbiome in healthy shape.

Struggling with brain fog (brain inflammation) or chronic fatigue (which tends to go hand-in-hand with brain fog)? One of the often missed causes is gut health, and the overlooked brain gut connection. When struggling with brain fog symptoms like fatigue, trouble focusing, forgetfulness, and haziness in your thought processes, it's likely stemming from problems in your gut and related to the blood brain barrier. What does gut health have to do with brain fog and fatigue? Inflammation in the gut is just the starting point as to what could be going on. Watch this video to learn how to get rid of brain fog (hint: probiotics are a great starting point!) and function better in your life!

Probiotics and diet is usually what I recommend as the first line of treatment, but what happens when you’ve tried both and are still facing health challenges? Immunoglobulins, the main ingredient of our Intestinal Support Formula, is a more novel treatment for healing and repairing your gut and supporting your immune system. In the podcast, I run through the latest research that shows how immunoglobulins can help improve a wide range of health conditions and how to implement Intestinal Support Formula into your regimen.
