Gut Healing Meal Replacements

Elemental Heal is a complete meal replacement shake that provides the essential proteins, carbohydrates, fats, and vitamins. Because of this, Elemental Heal can be used more frequently and/or for longer periods of time than other fasting approaches.

Elemental diets are gut-friendly, liquid diets that work quickly to improve IBD (ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s), IBS, SIBO, and inflammatory conditions. In fact, elemental diets are proven to work where other approaches have failed.

Elemental Heal lets your intestines rest and repair.

In elemental diets, the contents are “pre-digested” or broken down into elements:

Why Dr. Ruscio Recommends It

Preliminary clinical research has shown this to be true – this is not speculation

Elemental diets are highly effective for IBD (Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s).

The bulk of research into elemental diets is focused on IBD. It has been shown to be an effective treatment for IBD in numerous clinical trials, decreasing inflammation, reducing autoimmunity, and preventing relapses. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,

While data is still preliminary data, elemental diets have been shown to improve IBS, SIBO, celiac disease, and rheumatoid arthritis.

  • After two weeks on the elemental diet, 80% of subjects saw their SIBO breath test normalize, and 65% experienced an improvement in their IBS symptoms. 12
  • An elemental diet has been shown to help repair intestinal damage, reduce intestinal inflammation, and improve symptoms in those with celiac disease who did not respond fully to a gluten-free diet. 13
  • A clinical trial has shown that an elemental diet was as effective as the anti-inflammatory steroid drug prednisone for rheumatoid arthritis. 14

There seems to be general agreement among clinicians that elemental diets are a highly effective treatment. I have also found elemental diets to be very effective for patients. As the gut heals, patients often experience dramatic improvements in mood, sleep, fatigue, and mental clarity.


Research shows that elemental diets are safe

  • In research involving Crohn’s patients, long-term use of elemental diets was found to improve patient health and appeared to be very safe.15,16,17,
