You’ve been on that trial-and-error hamster wheel for so long you can barely see straight. You’re determined to find what’s causing your symptoms, but nothing you’re doing is working. Your labs and test results are normal. But you don’t feel normal.

“I had many health-related fears and was worried that I might learn something about my body that I didn’t want to know. When I saw my labs and finally knew exactly WHAT was affecting my body, I was empowered to be brave and make a life change. This change enabled deep emotional and physical healing and has increased my confidence in my body and myself.”

- Alex

I FINALLY KNEW WHAT WAS AFFECTING MY BODY!

“I was concerned that we wouldn’t find anything on my lab tests. I was scared that what I was struggling with was all in my head. In the end, we found LOTS of new information on my labs, and the stubborn belly pain I’ve been dealing with for decades is now GONE! I now have energy to take care of my 5 boys and go on runs the way that I used to!”

reviews

“I used to struggle with crazy sugar cravings, food intolerances, sleep problems and weight gain DESPITE exercising. But now I feel AWESOME! I even get compliments all the time on my hair, skin and face – you can SEE the transformation!”                   



FEELING AWESOME

- Abby

“I was struggling with intense upper abdominal pain, fatigue and joint pain. In just one week, my abdominal pain was less than half of where it started. In two weeks, it was gone. I now have the energy to take care of my kids without being distracted.”

FROM STRUGGLE TO PAIN-FREE LIVING

- Dessie

“Before working with Allison, I had seen top medical doctors at Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins University and the University of Michigan Medicine and gotten NO answers. I’d had multiple surgeries, could barely sleep 2 hours a night and had chronic pain.

After working with Allison, I now sleep through the night – no more waking up repeatedly! My body pain is way down, and I was even able to buy a puppy and re-paint my bedroom with my renewed energy. I now have hope for a pain-free life!” 

FROM NO ANSWERS TO NO PAIN

- Cee

“I was concerned that we wouldn’t find anything on my lab tests. I was scared that what I was struggling with was all in my head. In the end, we found LOTS of new information on my labs, and the stubborn belly pain I’ve been dealing with for decades is now GONE! I now have energy to take care of my 5 boys and go on runs the way that I used to!”   

I FINALLY HAD PROOF THAT IT WASN’T ALL IN MY HEAD

- Elle

"Allison has helped me with long term digestive and pain problems. Having been in the health industry myself for decades, it was refreshing to talk to her.

She clearly has an advanced understanding of how different systems work together to impact digestion and overall good health. I highly recommend her and her skill level when it comes to healing the gut."

OUR SIGNATURE 12-MONTH PROGRAM TAKES YOU FROM STUCK TO THRIVING

Welcome to your 12-month healing timeline!

Before you start, we’ll do lab testing and get your results so that we start off strong and informed!

MONTH 0: PREP TIME

Strengthen Your Immune System
Build Up Detoxification Pathways
Prepare for Pathogen Removal

This stage clears the way for everything that follows! We’ll fully address any pathogens that we find in your body (H. Pylori, Bacteria, Mold, Candida, Fungus, Parasites, etc.). Many clients have more than one pathogen, so your process might be shorter or longer based on what we find. We help you find them ALL and safely begin to eliminate them so that you get the most out of your healing journey. And if you’ve had pathogen testing before or done rounds of antibiotics or herbal medicine to address a pathogen, it’s common to still feel unwell. We’ll help you change that!

MONTH 1-3: REMOVE

Restore Digestion
Restore Nutrient Absorption
Restore Mineral Status

With pathogens safely eliminated, we’re ready to correct your stomach acid levels so that you can efficiently digest food and absorb nutrients. You’ll start seeing more significant results and getting desired outcomes that you just didn’t experience before. 

MONTH 4-6: RESTORE

Tie Up Loose Ends
Balance Minerals
Establish Deep Long-Term Change

You will LOVE this stage because it’s all about the onset of deep, sustainable change that you’re able to achieve by staying steady on this journey, giving your body the time it needs to continue healing and integrating all of the changes you’ve made in Q1 & Q2. Finally, you don’t have to work so hard to feel good!

MONTH 7-9: REVITALIZE

Reduce Food Restrictions
Introduce New Foods
Reduce Supplements

It’s time to feel like YOU again - without having to take a million supplements and repeatedly deprive yourself of things you enjoy to just feel okay. During this concluding stage, your body returns to homeostasis and can now maintain (and continue!) healing with much less support. You’re about to achieve long-lasting lifestyle changes. Happy healing!

MONTH 10-12: REDUCE

  • Unlimited access to Lab Testing (Value $1000)
  • Customized Health Plan (Value $1000)

HE MISSING PIECES TO YOUR BETTER HEALTH ARE CLOSER THAN YOU THINK. THEY’RE WITHIN YOUR REACH. ARE YOU READY TO GET BACK TO YOUR BEST HEALTH?
  
FOUNDATIONS PROGRAM IS WAITING FOR YOU!

What Exactly IS Functional Lab Testing?

(aka - the foundation of Foundations Program)

What many people don’t know – and I what came to learn myself – is that all blood labs are not alike. The answers you’ve been seeking – the ones that will finally explain why you’re not feeling your best – are right there in your blood labs.  

So, why is it so common for doctors to tell you that your blood labs are normal when you can feel that there’s an actual problem?

Let me tell you. Fair warning – I’m about to get a little science-y. Stick with me. I promise it will pay off.

Functional Lab Testing is the KEY to uncovering the root causes of your symptoms so that you can stop wasting time, energy and money trying to find the problems … and start taking the necessary steps to heal the problems.  

Here’s what happens.

Your doctor says that your labs look normal. But you don’t feel normal. You know something is wrong and have the symptoms to prove it. The answers should be there - in your blood chemistry. Yet your labs appear normal.  

Brace yourself for the science portion. 

Blood labs come in two versions - or ranges. There are FUNCTIONAL ranges and STANDARD ranges. Stick with me for a minute and things will make sense!
In conventional healthcare, standard ranges are used. This is a problem because these results are determined by taking the average of all people tested for a particular thing. This includes young and old, healthy and sick. 

This makes standard ranges frequently inaccurate because averaged into the results are the results from sick people (and so many in our population are sick).   

To get an accurate picture of your health, you need to be compared to a healthy person.  

Functional ranges do just that. They study healthy populations and determine more accurate ranges that reflect what a healthy person’s results should be. They allow you to see how you compare to someone who is healthy – not sick.

The purpose of unleashing my inner science nerd is to show you that when it comes to reading your blood chemistry, FUNCTIONAL is the way to better health and healing.

What is Functional Lab Testing?

We at Better Belly Therapies take away the guesswork and uncertainty – providing real answers and getting to the core issues that are preventing you from feeling your best. Even if you’ve been seeking solutions for years (and nothing has worked!), you can achieve better health and healing. The answers are there. We’ll help you find them.  

And we know just where to look. The belly. It’s the foundation of your body’s well-being. When you have a happy belly – aka good gut health – it helps keep your entire body in a balanced, harmonious state. It works hard to maintain healthy circulation, digestion, detoxification and so much more. The belly does it all! But when your belly isn’t functioning the way that it should, it can cause all sorts of problems. From typical belly issues like bloating and constipation to unexpected symptoms like body aches, fatigue, migraines and mood changes, if your gut health is dysfunctional, you’ll feel it!  

How Does This Relate to Gut Health?

Yes! Doctors rarely run the labs that we run, as we are looking for the root cause of your symptoms and condition.

Our labs are functional labs, which you now know means that they are looking below the surface to find what’s causing you to not feel your best.

Is Functional Lab Testing Different from the Tests My Doctor Orders?

The missing pieces to your better health are within your reach. We’re here to help you find them and start healing, feeling and living better.     

This means that you can get back to living more freely and fully – enjoying fewer food restrictions, better sleep, improved moods, less pain and doing more things that you love doing!

Allison exceeds the highest levels of training as a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P) and a certified Craniosacral Therapist (CST-T) and combines functional lab testing with craniosacral therapy and visceral manipulation to help men and women with digestive dysfunction decrease food restrictions and increase their energy and quality of life.

In 2019, she published her book Stop Stomach Pain: How to Heal Your Gut and End Food Restrictions which is now available in both digital and print form.

Why does this take 12 Months?

Investing your time in this health and healing journey is one of the best things you can do for yourself! After years spent helping our clients heal, we’ve repeatedly seen that long-term committment and dedication is what allows you to change - forever. Foundations Program was created with sustainable change in mind. When you take the proper time to Remove, Restore, Revitalize and Reduce, you complete the program a changed person who has these amazing new healthy habits embedded into who you are. This ensures that you’ll continue this journey - and stay on the right path - for a lifetime!

Do you have a shorter program?

We don’t. Because to get full transformational healing, you’ve got to give your body a good 12 months. We want you to get real change. Deep, long-term, thorough change that stays with you for the rest of the your life.

Will this really work for me?

If you are ready to stop guessing at why you don’t feel your best and implement real-deal long-lasting change - and you’re ready to do the work - then YES!  

You do have to trust and commit to the process. And you have us to help you every step of the way! We are there from start to finish to expertly guide you, encourage you and find the specific things that will allow you to heal. This is no cookie-cutter program. Everything you experience is custom-tailored to you based on your health history, lab results, lifestyle and more.

In addition, we look at things that so many others have overlooked (mineral testing, multiple pathogen layers, mold testing, etc.). This allows us to help you get better. And that’s what we do for our clients.  
We help you get better.

Are the lab fees included in the program price?

Included in your investment are 4 foundational labs. Some people need more labs than others, but we include the 4 for everyone. Any testing done in addition to the 4 labs is out of pocket, but what’s covered might be all you need.

Do you offer payment plans?

Yes! We allow you to make a $1000 deposit to start Foundations Program and another $1000 payment to cover your initial lab fees. From there, you can make monthly payments for months 2-11 of the program.

Will my HSA/FSA pay for this?

Many of our clients can pay for their labs with their HSA or FSA card. We recommend that you check with your insurance provider to ensure this is the case for you.
For all other fees paid to Better Belly Therapies, the HSA or FSA card cannot be used

I have worked with a Functional or Integrative Doctor before and didn’t get results. How is this different?

Better Belly Therapies works with clients who have previously worked with Functional or Integrative Doctors and are still seeking results. Doctors sometimes overlook key factors and healing opportunities. Many are rushed and simply don’t have adequate time to give a patient. Many work with insurance companies that dictate what can and cannot be done. Some might not be trained in certain areas (functional labs, etc.). While we at Better Belly Therapies do not diagnose or prescribe, we use functional labs to zero in on your issues and their causes. We spend much more time with you so that we can get to the root issues that have been preventing you from fully healing. We look deeper, catch more subtle clues and provide a highly-customized healing plan.      

I have an autoimmune condition. Can you work with me?

Yes! While we recommend that you remain under the care of - and in contact with - your treating doctor, the work that we do has consistently helped our clients with autoimmune conditions achieve remission and have shorter and less frequent flare ups. You can see the most common conditions that our clients come to us with (and eventually leave behind!) higher up on this page.

Is this program worth the investment?

Absolutely YES! You can’t place a monetary value on your body and your health. We often think about how much people invest in houses, cars, education, etc. All things that people need. But is anything more important than being able to live in a healthy body? We can’t think of a single thing.

Foundations Program will help to transform you into a healthier person with healthy habits that you’ll continue to implement for the rest of your life.  

Imagine being able to stop guessing and finally get REAL answers about your health. Imagine living a more joyful life full of increased energy to do the things you love, fewer food restrictions, fewer pills day after day and feeling like YOU again! You can’t put a price tag on that.
