The relationship between gastrointestinal dysfunction, nutrition, and chronic disease is multifaceted, compelling, and complex. The Functional Medicine model allows us to offer in-depth testing of your GI system utilizing comprehensive stool testing. Additionally, IgG food sensitivity testing and micronutrient testing will allow us to restore your microbiome, decrease inflammation, and support your GI and immune system.
If you are struggling with any of the following conditions, a comprehensive GI evaluation can be helpful to get you back on track:
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Abdominal pain
- Bloating or gas
- Hidden bacterial, fungal, parasite infections

Food as Medicine
Food can be used as a key therapeutic intervention. Proper nutrition can enable you to reset, decrease inflammation, and decrease immune activation throughout your body. While no one nutritional approach works for everyone, many existing health conditions can be modulated through food. For this reason, optimizing nutrition is a core part of our practice at the Wisconsin Institute of Functional Medicine.
Here is a list of popular diets that can help you feel your best:
- Gluten-free diet
- Paleo diet
- Autoimmune Paleo (AIP)
- Elimination diet, allergies
- FODMAP diet
- Anti-inflammatory diet
- Ketogenic diet
- LCD (low carbohydrate) diet
- Low histamine diet
- Low oxalates diet
At Wisconsin Institute of Functional Medicine, we will work with you to identify the nutritional approach that works for your body and lifestyle.
