How Can Working With a Dietitian Improve My Gut Health?
Our registered dietitians are clinically trained to treat your gastrointestinal and digestion issues with nutrition. They will take into account your medical history, needs, and preferences and will develop a plan to help you reach your goals. Your personal dietitian will help you sift through the confusing and, often overwhelming, nutrition noise to find out what's best for your unique gut microbiome. Your gut health dietitian will help you create a treatment plan for conditions like Irritable bowel syndrome or disease (IBS/ IBD), Celiac disease, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), diverticulitis and other digestive issues. They also support food sensitivities and allergies. Plus, they're available on your schedule via telehealth.
Nutrition and Gut Health: What's the Connection?
Inside our digestive tract (mostly within the large intestine), there live billions of bacteria which aid the body in a variety of functions from breaking down your food and facilitating nutrient absorption to impacting hormones and mood (whoah!). This ecosystem is called your "gut microbiome". The health of your gut relies heavily on a proper balance of 'good' bacteria to 'bad' bacteria. A shift in this ratio, called "dysbiosis", can mean a variety of ill effects. For example, too much 'bad' bacteria have been linked to higher incidences of IBS/ IBD, Crohn's disease, and ulcerative colitis, as well as Type 2 Diabetes and high blood pressure. What we eat can have a great impact on the balance within our gut — foods either promote good bacteria or not-so-good. While there are some general rules, like eating a variety of fruits and vegetables, most individuals require personalized support to determine which foods support their unique gut microbiome. Your Foodsmart dietitian is clinically trained to work with you to find what works and craft a plan specific to your needs and goals.

How long is the Gut Health Program?
The gut health program can be completed in as little as 8-10 weeks, but the length of the program depends entirely on your goals and the plan you develop with your dietitian.
