What is a GI-MAP™?

The GI-MAP test is an instrumental tool used to detect pathogens that could be the root cause of your symptoms. The main goal of this test is to use one stool sample when examining your microbiome to identify pathogens, opportunistic bacteria, beneficial bacteria, and key intestinal health markers. This has been a game changer for me in my health journey and I am excited to offer it to my clients as well!

A healthy gut is crucial for a strong immune system, healthy heart, healthy brain, improved mood, healthy sleep, weight management, and effective digestion. It may even help prevent some cancers and autoimmune diseases!

Let me guess ...

You’re tired, can’t lose the weight, bloated, have brain fog, don’t sleep well, have skin breakouts, mood swings, hormonal symptoms, and on and on. Am I right?

You’ve tried it ALL. This diet, that way of eating, this exercise program, that supplement and blah, blah, blah. And, YOU’RE DONE! You want real solutions which means discovering the root of the problem.

Could poor gut health and gastrointestinal pathogens be the root cause of your symptoms? For me, the answer was an overwhelming YES! You see, for years, literally as long as I can remember, I had GI issues - constipation, bloating, gas, indigestion, and cramping. And, it wasn’t until I discovered the root cause through proper testing that things began to change for the better!

You’re in the right place if ...

  • ✓  You have persistent symptoms like fatigue, brain fog, anxiety, gas, bloating, food sensitivities
  • ✓ You have a pantry full of supplements, but have no idea if they are actually working for you.
  • ✓ You’ve been searching for solutions on your own or with your doctor, but nothing seems to work.
  • ✓ You’ve tried everything from diets to detoxes, to try to look and feel your best, but you’re not there yet.
Do any of those sound like you?
Get Started

Instead of just managing your symptoms, we use the GI-MAP™ test to find and address the root-cause.

symptoms that can be addressed ...

bloating, gas, constipation
fatigue,  brain fog
weight management, diabetes
anxiety, depression, mood
food sensitivities
autoimmune disorders
skin problems, like acne and psoriasis
digestive complaints, diarrhea or constipation

Once we establish the root cause of your symptoms we can work to re-establish your gut health naturally with the following tools.

Diet & Lifestyle Changes

Considering your unique stressors, we create a plan to rebalance your diet & lifestyle.

Creating your Custom Protocol

Here’s how we’ll heal your gut ...

Remove

Remove any pathogens

We work with natural herbs and medical grade essential oils to remove any symptom-causing pathogen(s). We also remove any foods or medications that may be disrupting gut health (this is always done in conjunction with your physician)⁠.

Replace

replacing missing elements

We support proper digestion during the protocol by replacing levels of enzymes or beneficial bacteria that may be missing⁠. This typically includes supplements that support healing, reduction of inflammation, and boosting immunity.

Reinoculate

probiotics & prebiotics

We repopulate the gut with healthy bacteria by using the appropriate probiotics and prebiotics to make the gut health flourish and improve digestion. ⁠

Repair

long-term gut healing

At this stage, we want to create an environment that supports gut-healing and long-term relief. Often times we have to repair the gut lining and the intestinal wall by using special tools. This means cellular repair within the gut wall and introducing key nutrients that improve the immune system of the gut.

Rebalance

manage stress, rest, sleep, exercise

A huge part of my protocols include diet, stress management, sleep, and exercise suggestions to help the body heal as a whole. We know that gut health is affected intensely by stress alone. The personalized protocol I create for you takes your unique stressors into account and we create a plan to rebalance your lifestyle so you can prevent further GI dysfunction. ⁠

FAQ

Common Questions

What to expect

I

Complete a Questionnaire

To be the most effective, I want to learn a little more about your health history and current lifestyle. I also want to know about your wellness goals so they can be addressed as I put together your 90-day protocol. You’ll get access to the questionnaire as soon as you’ve purchased your package.

2

Complete Your GI-MAP™ Test

I will send you a link to purchase your test directly from Diagnostic Solutions (check with your insurance, as some plans will cover the test). The test will be sent to you along with very clear instructions on how to collect your stool sample and send it back to the lab for testing.


Once you mail the test back to the lab it will take 2-3 weeks to get the results and for me to formulate your protocol.

3

Consultation

During the consultation, we will go over your test results in detail and I will explain your custom protocol based on my assessment. Your plan may include diet recommendations, probiotics, herbal supplements, and essential oils to correct the imbalances highlighted by your GI-MAP™.

4

Protocol

The protocol specifically addresses the imbalances in your gut by removing the bad pathogens, replacing them with good ones, and alleviating any inflammation or digestive problems.

5

90-day Ongoing Support

During your 90-day protocol, we will communicate through your patient portal as needed to assess your progress, address any symptoms that may arise, and make any necessary adjustments.

6

Post 90-day Protocol

We recommend re-testing after the first 90-day phase to see how your test results have changed. Once we analyze the results of your second test, we can recommend a maintenance protocol. Many clients find it beneficial to complete annual or bi-annual GI mapping to stay on top of their gut health.

7

How Will You Know It’s Working?

You can expect an improvement in symptoms that you are having. Some happen faster than others. Gut healing is slow and can take up to one year to have full improvement. Most people see drastic improvement before the end of the protocol.

Does the GI-MAP™ test cover food allergies, sensitivities, or intolerances?

The short answer is no. But, once you heal the gut, food sensitivities tend to improve.

If you have a lot of food sensitivities I can help you to get a comprehensive food sensitivity test using the IgG Food Map Test through The Great Plains Lab. Doing both tests in tandem can be helpful in further customizing your protocol. 


Food Sensitivity Testing

If at the beginning of our work together, the symptoms you’re experiencing seem to be clearly related to certain foods, we can add an IgG Food MAP (food sensitivity) test to better tailor your diet and treatment plan.

I highly recommend working with Julie to get to the root of your gut issues! This has by far been the best thing I've ever done for my overall health. The results are amazing, even in ways I did not anticipate! Less fatigue, better results from my workouts (I can actually even see ab muscles sometimes!), improved mood, less PMS symptoms, regular bowel movements, none of the horrible, smelly gas, less bloating, actually lost a few pounds, better sleep, not taking PPI drugs anymore!”

Just a few short weeks ago I made a decision to contact Julie for GI help. It has been the best decision I’ve made in a long time. With her suggesting a few supplements, oils, some diet tweaks and suggestions for better choices with food; I have no bloating, very little gas, and going to the bathroom regularly now. I have gained so much more, as well. Balance, confidence, my skin is clearer, no brain fog (I can actually think now), more patience and little reflux. I am more awake and rested. I feel like I am getting my life back (finally). All because of Julie’s help. I have been recommending Julie (her podcasts/pages) to several friends who have asked what my “secret” is. I am very thankful I made the decision to stop, reach out and come up with a game plan.

I knew I had gut issues for a long time. I was always bloated, indigestion, gas, and constipation. I did not know how much your weight was connected. I took all the supplements you gave me but honestly didn’t do the diet changes like I should have. I cannot believe that I lost 13lbs just by fixing my gut! Thank you!

Julie’s approach to gathering my symptoms, conducting testing, and sharing my results was supportive and helped me feel like there was hope in feeling better.  The healing protocol she recommended was extensive, but she broke it down into easily consumable pieces that moved me from feeling overwhelmed to feeling in control and action-oriented.  And she followed up!  Rare in our current medical community....
