Patients rarely associate symptoms like brain fog, joint pain or allergies with impaired gut health, but the microbiome and the protective gut lining are our body's first defense!
That's why at Body & Soul Alchemy, going deeper on possible gut imbalances & stealth infections is part of our integrative approach... so we can dial down inflammation & premature aging.
Sometimes, the gut isn’t actually the problem, it's what you eat and how that affects the billions of bacteria in your GI tract. A poor diet (or frequent use of antibiotics) can kill the good gut bacteria and prevent the body from producing critical vitamins & neurotransmitters essential for balanced mood, calm mind, all-day-energy and a resilient immune system!
Persistent gut issues can spiral into systemic inflammation... which can eventually turn the body against itself. It's no wonder that psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, Hashimoto's and type I diabetes are at an all-time high... so we need to address chronic inflammation first before looking into more conventional options to help you reclaim vibrant health + wellness.

We like to think of ourselves as your trusted partner towards a healthier, more resilient life – supporting you every step of the way, because we know what's possible when you have the right guide by your side!
If you haven't found the answers you've been looking for with traditional medicine and still feel unheard, you are in the right place! We're excited to make you our next success story, so let's take the first step with the quiz :)
"Can’t say enough about Jennifer's books and programs. I felt really intimidated by health before I met her at one of her classes but was really inspired to learn more about healthy eating. I had no idea that I was eating all the wrong foods and doing a few other things that were causing my fatigue. Just after changing my eating habits over the past few months I've lost weight and feel so much better! I got over eating a lot of go-to frozen meals and so called "health foods" that well marketed but full of junk!
"Several years ago, I started to work on healing gut after being diagnosed with IBS. I noticed that certain foods would really cause bloating or other issues, so I wanted to work more on my diet and understand if eating a certain way could help. I was really excited to find Jennifer - not only because she had IBS like me, but she's so knowledgeable about gut health and even helped to guide me to the right Functional Medicine doctor for testing. It turned out that my IBS was something completely different and now that I know, it all makes sense!"
"Jennifer makes getting healthy a lot of fun. She loves great tasting food and her recipes don't disappoint! I really like her take on self-care too, making things as soulful as possible. She is very supportive and has always been there to guide, even at times when I didn't feel good about myself or fell off the wagon with trying to eat better. I highly recommend her if you are ready to improve your quality of life."
Do you feel like you've literally tried "everything" when it comes to your chronic gut issues? It's unfortunate that 97% of Americans don't know that there's natural solutions to resolve chronic GI issues once and for all. And that's why I am offering a free gut health assessment where you can discover how functional medicine can help… and whether it's the right approach for you. You can't make new decisions without new information… and I'd love to fill in the blanks for you during that free chat.
"I've been to so many doctors and specialists… yet nobody seems to have an answer. How do I know this will work for me?" The basic question is… can I help everyone? And the answer is NO.
But I can help most people.
That's the reason why I am offering a gut health assessment so we can chat about what you've already tried, what worked and what didn't work – so we can quickly see whether we can even help you.
"Doc, I am taking all these supplements… can you tell me which of these I can stop taking?" And with that, Marta lifted a basket of what must have been close to 30-40 supplement bottles. Every week, I get to chat with folks like Marta on those gut health assessments… exploring what they've tried so far, what didn't work, and where they want to go. And the call with Marta highlighted that "DIY-ing" your health can oftentimes be really expensive… she must have spent thousands over the years, and yet still suffered from chronic gut issues like bloating, irregular bowel movements and abdominal pain!
So unless you understand the root cause of what's causing your chronic symptoms, and unless you've verified the diagnosis with the right lab tests, it's next to impossible to come up with the right treatment approach. But what's even worse than wasting money… is wasting precious time! Spending years hacking your health… without ever addressing it holistically and comprehensively under the guidance of a qualified functional medicine provider.
That's why "Dr. Google" is so dangerous… it makes you believe that you can "DIY your health" when the opposite is true: You simply don't know what you don't know. So if you're ready to explore what it looks like to partner with an experienced, highly-trained functional medicine expert, then schedule your gut health assessment now!
The only way you can heal is to…
Unfortunately, so many spend years enduring their chronic health issues needlessly… simply because they procrastinate making a decision. It's almost as if they feel like they have nine lives like a cat… But how many lives do we have? One.
Can we afford to procrastinate? Absolutely not! So if that's you, I'd love to help sell you on yourself, that resolution is possible, that you can achieve true well-being when you have the right guide by your side.
It's very simple. Click the button and enter your information to apply for your gut health assessment.
Yes, some of the lab tests can be billed to insurance, just like you were to go to any other provider. For those without insurance, we offer substantially discounted self-pay rates.
If you're located in Lakewood and the general Denver area, we're happy to see you in person. But it's not necessary for the gut health assessment, which is conducted over phone/secure video conference.
