Treating Digestive and Gut Health Disorders

Hippocrates said thousands of years ago that disease begins in the gut. Today we are finding out just how right he was.

About 75% of your immune system and over 90% of your serotonin is in your gut, so it’s easy to understand why we have so much inflammation and depression when things are not right in our gut! Not only that, but without the proper digestion and absorption of nutrients, we can become severely depleted in key nutrients our bodies need to function optimally.

Rebuilding your gut health is absolutely possible, but will take a careful approach where nothing is left out. As many people have already found out, quick fixes never last in the long run, sometimes you end up worse than you were before.

We’re not interested in short term fixes or band aids. We are here to help you live a healthy and happy life for many years to come. It’s time to take control and start living the life you want.

Let's Get Started

Our main office is in Great Falls, Montana, but we are able to work with individuals nationally and internationally thanks to HIPAA compliant telehealth.

Telehealth — sometimes called telemedicine — lets you visit your doctor and receive care without an in-person office visit. Telehealth is done primarily online with internet access on your computer, tablet, or smartphone through video conferences and internet phone calls. This remote option is ideal for people who live in remote areas, or need consultation with a specialist whose office is an unreasonable or burdensome distance away. If you have internet access, we can help.

The sooner you start the journey, the more time you'll be able to enjoy.
