The 5R's: Healing & Replenishing the Gut

The 5R Protocol is a framework developed by the

Institute of Functional Medicine to heal a range of digestive conditions and restore gut health. Find out what it can do for you!


There are many reasons why I am so passionate about GUT (Digestive) HEALTH

It's not only that our gut is key for nutrient absorption and digestion, that houses

80% of the immune system or that 90% of serotonin is made there and it impacts brain health.

It is also the fact that hormonal balance,mood regulation and even gene expression, are all linked to the health of our gut.

An unbalanced gut results in annoying IBS, bloating, heartburn and constipation, along with other symptoms like migraine, fatigue, weight gain, depression, anxiety, skin and sleep issues, hormonal imbalances and autoimmune conditions.

Today I want to tell you about a tried and tested method to rebalance your gut and revamp your overall health: the 5R Protocol:

Remove unhealthy microbes that cause intense cravings and foods inflaming the gut.

Replace digestive enzymes, motility and cleansing waves.

Repair the leaky gut and lining of the intestinal wall.

Reinoculate, build and feed the good microbes.

Relax! Learn: how to manage stress without using food and alcohol to cope, how to heal your relationship with food, and how to implement the best supplements for hormonal balance and uninterrupted sleep.

The 5Rs Framework for Gut Restoration: Remove, Replace, Repair, Reinoculate & Relax dramatically improves symptoms and helps to solve underlying chronic health problems

The protocol will not only upgrade your overall health, it will also give you the tools to become a smart eater and have a better relationship with food


Unsure about the state of your gut health?


A lab evaluation will tell us exactly how your gut is doing

and the possible imbalances we might need to address.
