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 chance for your intestinal tract to rest and repair

Can Elemental Heal help with weight loss?

Will the carbs in Elemental Heal feed fungus or candida?

  • There’s no research to answer this question.
  • My opinion, no.  
  • Why? Because it is absorbed in the first few feet of intestines.  So it should starve fungus just like it does bacteria.  

Is Elemental Heal safe for children?

  • YES.  Robust research shows the benefit for children with inflammatory bowel disease;
  • Reduced symptoms, less relapse, improved growth…

Can Elemental Heal be used by highly active people?

  • YES
  • Why? It is a highly absorbable form of calories.  Many patients have noted they feel improved energy and vigor during workouts. 
  • Be sure your caloric intake is high enough though 

Can Elemental Heal be used all day?

  • “I prefer to blend up all of my Elemental Heal shakes at the beginning of the day, but on the bottle it says to consume within 4 hours. Why is that? What happens after 4 hours?”
  • As long as it’s kept cold, that should be fine.
  • Refrigerate to prevent spoilage
