THE GUT RESTORATION PROGRAM
The Gut Restoration Program is your journey to a healthier gut and a better life. Like Dr. Piken’s popular Be Better care plan, The Gut Restoration Program addresses the physical, chemical and emotional factors that contribute to gut health issues.
The full program includes:
- 12 health coaching and Q&A sessions
- A copy of Better, 11 Simple Habits to Improve Your Life
- Manual muscle testing and Applied Kinesiology treatments*
- Cold Laser Therapy (as needed)*
- Functional lab analysis
*Chiropractic adjustments occur in Dr. Piken’s NYC office only
The recommended laboratory testing that accompanies The Gut Restoration Program makes it the most comprehensive way to pinpoint the root cause of your gut health issues and inform the most effective care plan possible. Some of the tests utilized for gut health patients in the past include:
Functional Blood Chemistry and Nutritional Analysis
In order to gain valuable insight into your unique makeup, Dr. Piken will order blood work to get a sense of overall health as well as rule out factors that could be contributing to poor gut health including nutritional deficiencies, genetic issues, autoimmune disorders and much more.
Adrenocortex Stress Profile with Cortisol Awakening Response
This test uses six carefully timed salivary samples to analyze levels of the adrenal hormones cortisol and DHEA. Imbalances in adrenal hormones are behind a wide variety of complaints, including many GI symptoms.
Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis With Parasitology
This stool analysis provides valuable information about the overall health of the digestive system. It includes reports about digestion and absorption, inflammation, measures of pancreatic function, metabolic markers, microbiology markers and thorough testing for harmful parasites and their eggs.
Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) Breath Test
This non-invasive breath tests captures exhaled hydrogen (H2) and methane (CH4) gases after a patient drinks a sweet drink (a lactulose solution). The gases in the breath are collected over a period of several hours and later evaluated for evidence of bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine.
While lab tests do incur additional fees, we are happy to report that many insurance companies cover these tests. We can investigate your coverage during your New Patient Evaluation. Without insurance, the average lab test costs between $150 and $450. Most new patients require between one and three tests to gather the clinical information necessary to create an effective and comprehensive care plan.
