GUT RESTORATION WITH PATH NUTRITION
Is Gut Restoration Right for You?
Not sure what in the world is happening with your GI tract? You may have been told that your uncomfortable symptoms are just IBS and your MD probably gave you some pretty generic ways to manage it or worse they told you that you’ll just have to live with it. But you know that living with the unpredictable combinations of diarrhea, constipation, gas and bloating are not how you want to live.
Maybe you’ve tried to cut out some of the common foods like wheat and dairy. It helps for some time but your symptoms linger or come back, leaving you frustrated and back at square one, wondering what could possibly be the problem.
Maybe you don’t live with frequent diarrhea or constipation but you know things are not quite right inside your body. You feel more tired than you think you should be, sometimes you get pretty bloated and super gassy, but there’s not really any rhyme or reason to why.
If this all sounds too familiar…keep reading!

Why Symptoms Often Persist, Even with Popular Diets
If you keep searching for answers online you may find a dizzying array of information that could have you on the FODMAP diet, anti-candida plan, AIP diet, or who knows what. Maybe you have tried some of these options but there’s no lasting relief. The problem is that if you’re not seeking why your symptoms exist then these popular diet plans might not work.
Did you know that it is common to have the bacteria in your gut be out of balance or have parasites? Having these imbalances in your gut cause the immune system that lies in your GI tract to get weaker and weaker leading you to start reacting to more and more foods.
It is important to explore the cause of the symptoms rather than band-aid them. We help you uncover the root cause and create a tailored protocol that goes above diet alone to restore health.
Get Results with a Personalized Nutrition Plan
We help you get data to formulate the path back to healthy guts with some amazing lab tests that get you answers instead of guessing. We’ll explore what gut imbalances you have, if you are digesting your food properly, and if you actually have leaky gut or not. We’ll also test for food sensitivities (MRT-LEAP) to learn what foods you may be reacting to now so you can start strengthening your immune system and feeling better sooner than later.
Once we have all the data we create a completely personalized protocol for your needs.
We will walk you through every step of the way.
Don’t settle for in-home test kits and diet plans that aren’t customized to your body.
Let’s work together and get you out of the bathroom and back to normal.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do you take insurance?
We do not take insurance, but we do provide you with the necessary paperwork so you can file with your insurance which may cover a portion of your program depending on your coverage.
How is Path Nutrition different from standard practice?
We use integrative and functional principles to uncover the root of your symptoms and issues. We believe there is no one way of supporting health. Each person's body is unique in how it responds to food and the environment we live in. We look at all aspects of health and lifestyle. Food and nutrition are important but so are sleep, movement, stress levels, personal relationships, and community. Path Nutrition offers full service support. When you work with Path you have a team on your side. Everything is designed specifically for you.
What labs do you use to monitor gut health?
Depending on your health story we may suggest MRT food sensitivity testing, GI stool testing, organic acid, or general wellness panels. Some labs may be obtained by your medical doctor.
What is the MRT/LEAP Test?
MRT stands for mediator release test. We test 120 foods and 30 chemicals. The test measures the pro-inflammatory mediators (cytokines, histamine, leukotrienes, and prostaglandins) that are released when your cells come in contact with these foods and chemicals. The MRT test is more reliable than igg testing. LEAP is the patented diet protocol that takes place after you receive your results. We fully guide you through this process to ensure you're fully nourished along the way.
What's the difference between food allergies and food sensitivities?
- Food allergies often produce acute symptoms that are sometimes life threatening. Food allergy tests review IgE levels.
- Food sensitivities have unique characteristics such as delayed reactions and dose dependency. For example, although some reactions occur shortly after consumption, you can also react to a food 72-96 hours after eating it, often making it hard to establish cause and effect. In addition, unlike allergies, food sensitivities are dose dependent. For example, you might eat 1/2 cup of grapes and feel fine, but if you ate 2 cups you might not. Reactions can take many forms. Although most of the immune system is in the gut, reactions to foods aren’t necessarily confined to digestive symptoms. When you eat a reactive food, the immune system sends out special “chemicals” called immune mediators all throughout the body. These mediators can affect any organ or tissue, even in the brain.
What if I just want to lose weight?
We prioritize health over weight. If you don't have any health conditions or uncomfortable symptoms then you may be a candidate for our weight loss program. We approach weight loss by digging deeper and finding out what is really going on with your system as a whole. Our mind-body nutrition process will serve you more than anything you ever tried before.
What if I don't know how to cook or don't enjoy it?
That's OK, we help you with that too! As part of your program we offer cooking tutorials, grocery tours, meal planning exercises, and so much more. We want to educate you so you can make your own proactive changes and develop mindful eating habits.
Do I have to take supplements?
No, not everyone needs supplements, but you may need to take some short-term to bring the body back into balance that you simply can't achieve through diet alone.
