Digestive Health Program
Over 2000 years ago Hippocrates stated that “All disease begins in the gut” and we are learning more about the truth of that statement every day. Digestive health concerns, when not sufficiently addressed, may lead to deeper health conditions such as food allergies and autoimmune disorders. The Digestive Health Program treats Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO), Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), H. Pylori, Ulcers, Eosinophilic Esophagitis, Gastroparesis, Diverticulitis, Reflux/Indigestion and Nausea.
A full health history and subsequent testing is required to get to the root cause of digestive symptoms. Tests could include breath tests for SIBO or H.Pylori, stool tests and blood tests. Once the cause is identified then treatment can begin with dietary and lifestyle changes as well as herbal and/or nutraceutical supplements. Follow up testing may be required to insure that the treatment has been effective.
IBS and SIBO
IBS PrevalenceIrritable Bowel Syndrome, IBS, is the most common digestive disorder with US rates in the area of 10-15% of the population.
IBS is often SIBOStudies from Cedars-Sinai show that up to 85% of IBS cases are really caused by Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth and that underlying cause needs to be treated.
Natural Treatments are EffectiveStudies from John Hopkins have shown that herbal treatments are as effective, if not more effective, than the standard antibiotic treatments for SIBO and have a much lower incidence of negative side effects.

Help Fund Inside Health Institute
Inside Health Institute relies on donations to start new programs and to help cover costs for patients who are unable to cover the full cost of their treatment. Please help support us by funding our GoFundMe campaign to raise an initial $30,000. To be ready to open for business, we need to raise 3 months minimum of operation expenses ($25,000) and $5,000 for the charity care program. Operation expenses include: hiring two part time staff (one for operations and administration and the other for support with our lab and breath testing), getting phone and fax lines installed, marketing (website, business cards, prescription pads), and rental space.
