Learn how food plays a critical role in managing even the most complex conditions.

Gastrointestinal Nutrition

Managing a gastrointestinal issue can be challenging. Our dietitians are here to help you navigate dietary restrictions and improve gut health to help manage symptoms like diarrhea, indigestion, constipation, pain, gas, or bloating caused by conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis, or Crohn’s disease.

Our dietitians develop personalized, comprehensive plans and establish an ongoing relationship with you to implement sustainable changes. We can help you understand your condition and how food and lifestyle impact your body and can provide evidence-based guidance on dietary approaches and supplements.

We offer one-on-one nutrition counseling and a free virtual support group for those with GI conditions.

Virtual GI Support Group

A free group, facilitated by our registered dietitians, that offers support to individuals with GI conditions and provides a space to connect and share experiences with others. Other guest speakers can be featured from gastroenterology, behavioral health and more to share information and guide discussions.

This support group is for anyone who deals with GI disturbances such as:

  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Inflammatory bowel disease such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), also known as acid reflux
  • Celiac disease
  • Other chronic GI conditions

Not sure if this support group is for you?

Consider these four ways that participating in a GI support group can improve your health and well-being:

  • Sometimes having a chronic condition or gastrointestinal concerns can feel isolating. Having a support group means you are never alone in managing your condition.
  • Support groups provide a lot of practical advice for GI ailments that comes from others with experience managing it themselves.
  • Support groups provide personal connections, which is what makes them so effective. Members often have similar challenges and can help each other through tough times and problem solving.
  • Guest speakers and rotating topics connect you to new therapies, research and community resources, helping you stay cutting edge with managing your health.
