This powerful gut healing tool is now better (and more versatile) than ever.
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.
Why Dr. Ruscio Recommends it
- Elemental diets are one of the most effective therapies I’ve used in the clinic
Numerous trials support this observation
If you have already improved your diet and used probiotics but still have symptoms, an elemental diet should be considered
Elemental diets are so effective because they act through multiple mechanisms
- starving bacterial and fungal overgrowths
- reducing exposure to dietary irritants
- providing a change for your intestinal tract to rest and repair
