Gut health conditions we treat.

Irritable bowel syndrome.

This is defined as a group of symptoms that occur together, most commonly including some abdominal discomfort with associated stool changes.

We find that the actual cause is often missed, and common contributors include poor digestion, food triggers, disruption of the microbiome, and overlooked fungal/bacterial/parasite infections.

Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth.

This condition occurs when the bacterial population in the small intestine is increased, often with bacteria usually found in the colon. It is a commonly overlooked condition that leads to stool changes, abdominal bloating and discomfort, as well as nausea.

Unless the diagnosis is properly considered, it can't be adequately treated, and our team makes sure to consider this diagnosis, properly diagnose it (hydrogen dominant, methane dominant, hydrogen sulfide), and create a personalized plan for progress to treat it.

"Leaky gut" & Intestinal permeability.

Our intestines have a lining that maintains a barrier for what is able to enter into our bloodstream.  If that lining is missing pieces or layers, it can't do it's job, so a variety of things can enter the bloodstream. This is a common cause of what so many people think about as "food sensitivities or IgG (+) foods".  There are many causes for this loss of gut lining, so our team helps you identify your unique causes, so we can make a plan to fix the damage and restore optimal gut health.

GERD & Acid reflux.

This is commonly diagnosed (and misdiagnosed) condition, characterized by acid containing contents leaking back up to your esophagus, with the most common symptom being a burning sensation in the middle of the chest area that worsens after eating.

The most common treatment is suppressing the acid and that is appropriate for some people, but not everyone. We find that assessing for food triggers, considering the microbiome and any motility or gut lining issues, and also aiming for weight optimization, are valuable tools in a personalized GERD plan.

How our gut health program works.


Comprehensive gut health analysis from a doctor.

We dedicate time to understanding your genetics, history, lifestyle, and goals. Combined with advanced microbiome lab tests other doctors don’t run, we identify key drivers of poor gut health, including any nutrient deficiencies.

Root cause evaluation of risks and drivers.

What does your doctor screen for at the first meeting?

Poor digestion, abnormal stool changes or microbiome abnormalities, leaky gut or food allergies or sensitivities, prior antibiotic or infection exposures, bowel inflammation or detox problems, previous microbiome labs or analyses (including GI workups/endoscopies/colonoscopies), previous gut health diagnoses, family history, lifestyle factors like healthy exercise, stress, diet, drinking, and smoking habits.

What our doctors test for.

Poor digestion markers.

Pancreatic elastase, Fat or protein malabsorption, short-chain fatty acids / n-butyrate levels.

Abnormal microbiome or stool changes.

Elevated methane dysbiosis score, overgrowth of “bad” bacteria, deficient beneficial gut bacteria, SIBO breath testing.

Leaky gut, food allergies, and sensitivities.

Level of growth of Akkermansia mucinophila, IgE food or environmental testing, Lactulose/mannitol testing, Zonulin testing.

Medications / supplements that may induce autoimmunity.

Isoniazid, Hydralazine, Procainamide, Tumor-necrosis factor (TNF) alpha inhibitors (such as etanercept, infliximab, and adalimumab), Minocycline, Sulfasalazine, Chlorpromazine, Quinidine, Methyldopa.

Prior antibiotic or infection exposures.

Parasite screening, Fungal or Yeast screening, Helicobacter pylori testing.

Bowel inflammation or detox problems.

Inflammation-associated dysbiosis score, Calprotectin, Fecal secretory IgA level, Beta-glucuronidase level.


Based on your genomics, specific omega fatty acids, vitamins, and the mineral amount that your body needs.


Get a 100% personalized gut health plan.

Personalization to your body is our policy—these tests & screenings tell us the current status of your microbiome, digestive health, inflammation, bacterial imbalances and which areas to focus on to optimize gut health.

What’s in your personalized plan?

Personalized plans target your body risks and root cause drivers using nutrition, lifestyle changes, and targeted supplements to help you achieve optimal health.

Integrative nutrition plan.

Whole, unprocessed foods with high nutrient diversity and known gut health benefits such as probiotic bacteria, foods to assist with leaky gut, low FODMAP, low nickel food plan, probiotic intake, elimination diet with food reintroduction and tracking.

Lifestyle & movement plan.

Mindful eating, with breath-work before meals, stress management, enjoyable movement plan.

Supplements & medication.

We believe in a natural, nutrition-first approach with targeted supplements. As a policy, supplement recommendations are targeted entirely at the risk factors identified in the tests. Our doctors can prescribe medication and will do so on an as needed basis.


Progress tracking & ongoing support.

With proactive 30-60 minute appointments & unlimited messaging, we make sure that you achieve your gut health goals. Our holistic functional medicine approach puts you at the center of the treatment process.

Ongoing support, tracking, and proactive visits.

Maximize your progress with continuous functional medicine support and check-ins with your doctor and nutritionist. We'll also track your progress using wearables, repeat advanced lab tests, and educational content geared toward your condition.

Personalized care and support.

Traditional Approach

One size fits all.

Healthcare today can be summarized as a 10 minute consultations that inevitably ends in prescription medication—we know we can do better.

10 minute consultations.

Nowadays we gotten used to the 10 minute appointments which only end up treating the surface.

Band-aid approach.

A conventional protocol would prescribe a pill or supplement to solve your problems and symptoms, but that kind of quick treatment doesn't target the condition's root cause. Index Health won't mask your symptoms--we help you figure out exactly what is driving them to find relief.

No ongoing support.

The average clinic is barely there for you when you're sick. We're here for you when you need us--to prevent disease and plan for longevity.

Quick fixes.

We know that a healthy body doesn't happen overnight, and our approach will take effort, time, and willingness to change. If you are not ready to put in the time and effort to get lasting results, then Index Health is unlikely to be a good fit.
