What GI-Focused RDs Say About This Course

Jane Schwartz, RD

Specific to Nutrition Professionals

Jane Schwartz, RD

GI Roadmap is a gem. Erin and Alicia are trusted practitioners who leave no stone un-turned when it comes to researching a topic and providing the best evidence based materials that I feel confident sharing with my clients. As an RD, it's also super helpful to be able to learn from nutritionists (vs MD's or other) as they are laser-focused on how we can integrate the info without going out of our scope of practice. The course goes above and beyond with the information shared AND their time to answer questions and provide valuable feedback.
Paulette McMillan, RD

Best Among Hundreds

Paulette McMillan, RD

Excellent course, I could not have asked for more. I have taken hundreds of courses over the years and many were very good but this one is exceptional. Although this course is SIBO based it covered many GI issues and systemic diseases and their interconnections to SIBO. In-depth testing and interventions were addressed. In addition, there were weekly Q&A sessions. The presenters addressed many case studies during the Q&A and the answers provided were thoughtful and thorough.
Anita Dock RD

Organized, Easy to Understand, and Practical

Anita Dock RD

The SIBO Academy has fabulous courses. They are organized and easy to understand. I especially love getting practical ways to apply the information with protocols that includes specific products and dosages. Erin Skinner and Alicia Galvin are so knowledgable about their content and can explain things in an easy to understand style. I look forward to taking more and more courses that they teach.
Valerie Polley, RDN, LDN

Advanced GI Without the Overwhelm

Valerie Polley, RDN, LDN

Learning all of the nuances of GI nutrition can feel overwhelming. This course takes these topics associated with GI issues and bundles them together to be able to understand symptoms, testing and protocols to put forth. I can take this information and use it in my practice right away.
Meg Gerber RD, LDN, IFNCP

Builds on to Integrative & Functional Nutrition Training

Meg Gerber RD, LDN, IFNCP

I highly recommend this course! This was a great addition to my IFNCP training and provided me with the deeper dive into functional GI treatments and overall knowledge base that I was looking for.
C.A., RD

Used to Optimize My Practice

C.A., RD

This course far exceeded my expectations! I made alterations to my intake form, updated my protocols, redesigned my packages I offer on my website, and overall have a better understanding and confidence working with SIBO and other GI related issues.
Christine Bou Sleiman, MS, RD, CLT

A Must-Take for GI Nutritionists!

Christine Bou Sleiman, MS, RD, CLT

This course is a must take if you are interested in learning in-depth, well researched, and practical information that will help you with your GI patients. I learned so many take-aways that I was already able to put into practice. Alicia and Erin are definitely experts in this field.

Exceeded expectations!


This course was surprisingly loaded with step-by-step protocols, practical tips and summaries for condition specific recommendations. The instructors were incredible mentors always available to answer any questions and provide directly usable strategies. All information had research references and was organized in a logical format. The course exceeded my expectations and was certainly worth the price.
Bonnie Roill, RD

Invaluable, Even for Experienced GI Nutritionists

Bonnie Roill, RD

I've been a practicing RDN for 40 years with several decades working with digestive disorders but this course humbled me to what I didn't know and how much more I can offer my clients.

Amazing Support with My Questions!


Alicia and Erin are experts on SIBO and every facet within the GI tract. They were always available to answer questions. I found the Q & A sessions invaluable. I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to dive deeper into SIBO and how to implement interventions to support the treatment of SIBO.

What GI-Focused RDs Say About This Course

Dianne Cogburn MPH, RDN, LDN.

One of the Best

Dianne Cogburn MPH, RDN, LDN.

I have taken other courses from SIBO academy as well as the advanced G.I. Course with the institute of Functional Medicine. This new course is more comprehensive and includes live Q & A sessions with other dietitians which is very valuable. There are also many resources that are ready to share with clients. I have learned so much in this course and I highly recommend it for anyone wanting to increase their skill set in gut health.
Erika Jacobson, MS RD

Comprehensive Course Worth the Investment

Erika Jacobson, MS RD

This course is absolutely worth the investment. It is comprehensive but concise, with loads of applicable information and tools for your practice. The Q&A sessions are in-depth and so helpful that you can get clarity on course materials and ask case questions. Take this course! You won't regret it!

Answers to common questions about the GI Dietitian's Roadmap

  • How long/when does the course run?

    The course runs for 10 weeks: Jan 24th - Apr 1st, 2022. The weekly seminars are Mondays (recorded, on-demand) and the optional mentorship hours are Thursdays or Fridays for 1 hour. All sessions will be recorded and shared.

  • What is the time commitment?

    There will be a 90 minute recorded seminar once weekly, plus an optional live 1-hour Q&A once weekly. That's all the time required!

  • What if I can't attend live?

    No problem! You'll have access to recordings for 12 months, plus you can send questions on your topic in advance. You can also catch up with us at weekly 'office hours' with questions or any tricky cases you have.

  • What will I get out of this?

    Most importantly, you'll have true expertise, effectiveness, and confidence with GI patients. This will allow you to launch your dietetics career to new heights (this ability is priceless)! You'll also get 25 CEUs from CDR (approved) plus rewarding, lasting connections with other GI-focused nutrition professionals.

  • Is there a refund policy?

    The course is non-refundable after Jan 24, 2022.

  • How is this different than your other SIBO Academy Content?

    Our other SIBO Academy content is focused just on SIBO. On the other hand, this course is focused on GI-focused practice in a broad sense. This is an advanced course that is targeted for clinicians with a background in Integrative and Functional Nutrition (not a beginner/intro course). So, you'll become effective at working with a complex GI patient from start to finish, whether it's SIBO, other GI conditions/problems, or a combination.

  • Does this include CEUs?

    The course is approved by CDR for 25 CEUs for Registered Dietitians. You also get continuing education credit for maintenance of your IFNCP credential through the Integrative and Functional Nutrition Academy (IFNA).

  • When will you run the course again?

    The next run of the course starts Jan 24, 2022. As with last time, we expect it to sell out quickly. So, if you want to become a GI expert nutritionist, it's best to jump on it before enrollment closes. You'll have access to all videos and materials for 12 months, so it's OK if you can't attend 100% live.

  • What EXACTLY is included?

    Over the 10 weeks, we'll go over the advanced info and practical application that you need for expert GI assessment, testing, intervention, and dietary/MNT. You'll also get toolkit items in each module - practical handouts, algorithms, diet guides, and recipes to make it EASY on you. Grab our full, detailed outline HERE:
