Gut-Brain Healing With Functional Nutrition
Hi, I’m Amy, a registered dietitian nutritionist.
I help people with digestive and brain disorders improve their symptoms, get comfortable with food again, and transform their gut-brain health.
If you have IBS, Crohn’s, ulcerative colitis, celiac disease, GERD, SIBO, or EoE or symptoms including diarrhea, constipation, gas, and bloating, we can create a food as medicine plan for you. My other specialties are ADHD, anxiety, and post-concussive syndrome.
If this is you, you are in the right place!
Working with a functional nutrition dietitian is for you if…
Do you struggle with any of these symptoms?
- Gas and bloating
- Constipation or diarrhea
- Low energy
- Difficulty sleeping
- Joint pain
- Skin conditions
- Brain fog
Functional Nutrition Labs
Getting to the root cause of your gut-brain symptoms will involve a review of your medical and nutritional history, conventional labs, and lifestyle. We will review your current nutrition and supplement intake and create a personalized food as medicine plan.
Some additional functional labs may be recommended.
MRT® FOOD SENSITIVITY TESTING AND THE LEAP PROTOCOL
This is a blood test called the mediator release test that tests for 176 food and chemical sensitivities. From these results, we create your personalized nutrition protocol (LEAP) to reduce inflammation, improve your digestive health, and reduce symptoms.
MICRONUTRIENT TESTING FOR NUTRIENT DEFICIENCES
In this test, a full assessment of your nutrient status (vitamins like B12, minerals such as magnesium, fatty acids, and antioxidants) will be completed. We will use the results to optimize your nutrition and supplement plan and improve deficiencies that may be caused by genetics, digestive symptoms, increased needs, and/or dietary limitations.
IMPROVING GUT HEALTH WITH TESTING
A comprehensive functional stool test to analyze your gut health including gut dysbiosis, digestive enzyme production, parasites, and pathogenic bacteria.
GENETIC TESTING TO EMPOWER YOU TO CHANGE YOUR HEALTH
The genetic testing panel looks for genetic variations that may affect health and wellness.
