How long does it take to reduce and manage IBS symptoms? What are possible results?

Resolution of dysfunctional bowel habits, pain, food aversions and intolerances, and effects on daily living, are all possible. We typically suggests a minimum of 90 days to approach clinical improvement. We aim to establish realistic expectations with limits on when to change strategies, and involve each patient in treatment decisions.

What happens if you don’t manage IBS properly?
Unexplained symptoms arising from the gastrointestinal tract can persist for years in those for whom a root cause has not been identified, affecting all aspects of life.

Meet Lisa, who was put on Thyroid medication while pregnant. Lisa wanted to get off medication.

We addressed her inability to detox and began to fix abnormal bacterial growth in her microbiome (Klebsiella) while boosting the gut immune system (low sIgA).

"I have never had a doctor spend so much time preparing for our appointment by extensively analyzing all of my lab work from the past several years and putting together a comprehensive plan." - Lisa

What's the cancellation policy?

- You can cancel after your first appointment at no additional costs.
- If you cancel later in your membership, we will calculate the difference between the appointments you already had, and the membership fees you paid, to either charge or reimburse you the difference.

Examples:
- Paid $129 for the trial, canceled after the first appointment. No additional cost.
- Paid $487 for the first 3 months ($129+$179+$179), and had 2 doctor appointments & 1 nutritionist appointments. The cost of those appointments is $802, so you would have to pay $315 ($802-$487).
- Paid $666 for the first 4 months ($129+$179+$179+179), had 1 doctor appointment & 1 nutritionist appointment. Cost of those appointments is $494, so we would reimburse you the difference of $172 ($666-$494)
