What's Included!

Here's How We Help You Optimize your GI Nutrition Practice

Monthly membership includes:

  • Live (and recorded) 60-90min member meetings the 4th Tuesday of every month with access to a Google document with written questions and answers
  • Ability to obtain 1 CEU per member meeting you attended live
  • Ability to submit case studies (via email) and GI specific questions (via Slido) throughout the month. Please note the deadline for submitting questions is end of day the Friday before the Tuesday meeting. 
  • Access to a member-specific Facebook page. We will answer questions 1x a week, but it is also an opportunity to connect with other members and get multiple perspectives
  • Quarterly live (and recorded) Stop and Strategy Sessions to discuss the business aspect of being an integrative and functional GI nutrition professional 
  • Quarterly member updates (recorded)

What the membership does NOT include:

  • Individual email responses around cases or answering questions outside the member meeting. If you have a case or situation you want to discuss more in depth, this is a great option for individual 1-1 mentoring 
  • Answers from us daily in the Facebook page. If you have not received a response by the 7th day you posted, please tag us again. Sometimes we miss Facebook posts due to Facebook algorithms. 
  • Sometimes we run out of time in the live session so we cannot guarantee that all questions will be answered live, especially if submitted after the deadline or close to the deadline. However, we will usually type out written answers for you or will put the question as first priority for the following month.


  • Who is this for?

    The membership is for you if you'd like the opportunity to get affordable, consistent mentorship in advanced integrative and functional GI nutrition, and if you'd also love access to a community of like-minded nutrition professionals. As always, our goal is to support you in continuing to grow a successful, gratifying career in GI-focused integrative and functional nutrition. The membership is our way of doing this in a more accessible, flexible way.

  • What are the monthly Q&A sessions?

    Send us your pressing questions, challenging cases, and topics you want to learn more about. We'll meet as a community for an hour the third Tuesday of each month to get you the answers you need.

  • What are the quarterly practice updates?

    Every quarter, we'll send you a bundle to keep you current and to help you grow the effectiveness of your practice. These updates will include summaries of the latest research, products, and protocols. We'll also send you some handouts and resources for your practice!

  • What if I have questions during the month?

    Membership includes access to our group platform where you can submit questions all month long. We'll go in several times per week to get you answers to questions that have fairly simple replies (or that are urgent). For questions with a longer answer, we'll save them for the live Q&A. Also, this is a community space with like-minded professionals. So, you can also communicate with each other any time!

  • What's the obligation?

    Come and go as you please! We will charge a $49 re-entry fee if you come back, and you won't have access to missed content. Also, the introductory pricing doesn't apply after returning. You're only invoiced per month with no contract!

  • What's the pricing?

    The membership is $55/month, no contract.

  • What's with the optional 1:1 sessions?

    Membership comes with the option to add on three mentorship sessions (1:1 for 1 hour) with Erin or Alicia (you pick). Use them when you need help with a tricky case or condition. If you're interested in the 1:1 sessions add-on, just send us an email to [email protected] .

  • Do I need to take your courses first?

    No! We'll meet you where you're at. Membership is a great way to assess if you like our teaching style. However, our courses and many of our students are fairly advanced in GI-based Integrative and Functional Nutrition. So, you may hear content that is outside your current framework (we won't always have time to teach the full context of advanced content, but we'll support you the best we can).

  • How do I get started?

    Just purchase the GI Nutrition Membership 'course' and we'll be in touch with the details! As soon as you join, you will hae access to the course shell with the full schedule and all previous monthly meeting recordings and quarterly updates. Each monthly payment is for the following month).
