VIRTUAL GUT HEALTH CLINIC

The Gentle Journey To Feeling Whole Again

Your wellbeing is something you deserve. Get the help you need to overcome IBS and SIBO now.”      

Your gut health is not just a matter of comfort. It is a matter of urgency.
IBS and SIBO can have a profound impact on physical and mental well-being. It affects the daily lives of people suffering from the symptoms.

Practitioners not familiar with the topic of gut health, IBS, and SIBO often have difficulty identifying the root causes of these conditions. And so root causes get completely overlooked. They do not have the right approach to get you feel better. Is not their fault. And it is not your fault, too.


Our IFDW Gut Health Experts have extensive experience and training to understand the underlying root causes of your gut issues. Gut Health Experts will create an individualized plan to address your digestive health.


So take control of your gut health today and start living your best life.

How it works

At the Institute For Digestive Wellbeing, we understand that your health history and symptoms are unique.

We take a personalized approach to your care. Working with our gut health experts means we are committed to helping you reach your health goals.
Start your path to gut health with an in-depth online questionnaire followed by a personalized Intake Visit with your IFDW Gut Health Specialist.

This virtual meeting is designed to understand your unique health history and symptoms thoroughly.

It's convenient – you can do it from the comfort of your own home. Your specialist will dive into your case, offering the first step in your personalized plan to get you feeling better.

Next, we create your Personalized Protocol - a custom action plan to address your unique needs. This means every recommendation, from diet changes to lifestyle tweaks, will fit perfectly with your health background.


Want to dig deeper? We offer optional tests like the SIBO Breath Test or GI Map Test. These can uncover the root cause of your symptoms and help us create an even more targeted plan for feeling better (these tests are an additional cost).

Plus, you get four follow-up consultations with your Gut Health Specialist – every two weeks


These virtual meetings will track your progress, fine-tune your plan as needed, and give you personalized tips to keep you on the road to feeling your best.

Modern IBS and SIBO treatments focus on YOU. Functional medicine practitioners and Registered Dietitians (gut health experts) work together to create personalized plans that address the root cause of your symptoms.

Why We're Different

We understand that you might have been frustrated with other healthcare providers. Maybe they didn't specialize in gut health or offered a one-size-fits-all solution. At IFDW, we take a different approach. We focus on you as an individual, guiding you through the process based on your specific situation. But it's a two-way street: to see results, you'll need a genuine desire to improve your health and be open to making positive changes.

  • 1-2 Months: In ideal situations, you could see a significant improvement in your gut health within 1 to 2 months. That's a big win for your digestive system!
  • 4-6 Months: Some folks might take up to 4 to 6 months to see more dramatic changes. Remember, everyone's body works at its own pace.

At IFDW, we believe coaching for gut health is more than just symptom management. We go beyond the surface to identify the root causes of your gut health issues.

We don't just treat symptoms. At IFDW we empower you to take charge of your health. Always with the goal in mind to get you to a live you can live to the fullest again.


Up To Date:

The experts at IFDW are dedicated to staying ahead of the curve. Our team actively is on the look for latest research, collaborates with leading gut health experts worldwide, and is open for innovation. This ensures you receive effective treatment options available.

At the IFDW Institute for Digestive Wellbeing, we specialize in offering Health and Wellness consultations via Telephone and Video Calls.

Our team focuses on uncovering the root causes of your digestive issues. We aim to provide a holistic perspective as well as a functional medical approach.

You may benefit from our extensive experience. And so we can help in areas that are often overlooked by other practitioners.


Important to note: Due to our way of doing consultations, we can't act as a traditional PCP. Diagnosing medical conditions and prescribing medications require an in-person doctor-patient relationship. We cannot establish this virtually.


We believe a strong relationship with a local doctor is essential for your overall health. They can address any concerns that might need medication or other medical interventions.


Think of us as your partner in gut health! Our goal is to help you achieve optimal digestive health and overall well-being.

Many of our clients inquire if they can submit our invoices to their medical insurance. We understand navigating insurance policies can be complex. 


At IFDW Institute For Digestive Wellbeing, we prioritize your health and effective treatment. That is why we operate independently of medical insurance providers. That also includes Medicare and Medicaid.

This allows us to offer hyper-personalized care. Without the limitations by insurance plans.


This means our services are out-of-pocket. But we've experienced that our clients appreciate the value of our approach. 

The Virtual Clinic at the IFDW Institute For Digestive Wellbeing is our approach to deliver expert care directly to you.

The best is: it does not matter where you are. Our Virtual Clinic offers a convenient way for you to consult with our digestive health specialists. It is so easy: via Phone Call or Video Call.


From initial consultations to follow-up appointments, our Virtual Clinic provides comprehensive services including personalized treatment plans, and ongoing health management. All accessible from the comfort of your home or office. 

Everyone's journey is unique, and progress in therapy can happen at different paces. While we focus on making each session productive, the number of appointments you'll need can vary.


Typically, our therapists recommend seeing clients every 2-3 weeks.

Therapy is a personal journey, and everyone progresses at their own pace. Some people experience positive changes within a few weeks, while others may take longer. Our goal is to get you feeling better as quickly as possible.


Here's what to keep in mind:

  • Progress isn't always linear: There may be ups and downs along the way.
  • It's unique to you: How you respond to therapy will be different from others.
  • Your approach matters: Your active participation and willingness to try new things can significantly impact how quickly you see improvement.

We'll work with you to track your progress and adjust your treatment plan as needed.
