The GI-MAP™ test is an ideal service to add to your existing wellness business or as the foundation for a new virtual practice. By learning how to interpret the GI-MAP™ and using our custom protocols, you’ll have the tools and resources to help your clients resolve chronic gut issues and improve their overall health.
This is the course we wish we had when we started! From beginning to end, we give you all the tools set up GI-Mapping in your business. We eliminate the guesswork by guiding you through the science, set-up, and sustainable business practices, so you can focus on helping your clients heal.
The GI-MAP™ (GI Microbial Assay Plus) is a DNA based stool test that provides practitioners with a detailed analysis of the gastrointestinal microbiome including pathogenic bacteria, commensal bacteria, opportunistic parasites, fungi, and viruses.
Accurately assessing how much of an organism's DNA is present is essential for helping practitioners to determine its clinical significance.
Using qPCR technology provides high levels of sensitivity, specificity, and consistently reproducible results.
Protocols guide patients through removing pathogens, repopulating healthy gut bacteria, repairing the gut lining, and rebalancing their lifestyle.
Every patient can benefit from a GI-MAP™ gut health assessment. Some patients are looking to achieve optimal health, while other patients have been chronically ill and frustrated without a diagnosis for years.
Overwhelmingly, research indicates that gut health impacts overall health. The gut microbiome, in particular, plays a critical role in digestion and nutrient absorption. It also affects mood, sleep, hormones, immune function, and overall systemic wellness. Assessing GI health with the proper tools can help practitioners get to the root cause of chronic illness.

So many people suffer for years without solutions to GI issues. We've developed this course to help you learn and apply the GI-MAP™ so you can bring those solutions to your clients.
We’ve spent hundreds of hours interpreting tests, developing protocols, creating supplemental materials, and have achieved amazing results for our clients. All our experience around gut health and GI-Mapping is included in this course, and we're excited to share it with you.
We spend time breaking down the detailed sections of the test. You'll practice reading the test results of real clients, and become comfortable with interpreting the information.
We cover pathogens, H. pylori, normal/commensal bacteria, opportunistic/overgrowth microbes, fungi, yeast, viruses, parasites, intestinal health markers, and antibiotic resistance genes.
Our uniquely designed protocols are research and evidence-based and modeled on our backgrounds in both modern and holistic medical practices.
Support protocols usually include targeted suggestions for diet & lifestyle changes, stress management and a supplement plan based on individual results.
Add the GI-MAP™ to your current practice or use it as a foundation for a NEW virtual wellness business.
You’ll learn how to talk about the test, set up your lab account, and deliver protocols. We provide client questionnaires, and marketing tools, as well as our billing practices.
By offering unique ways to support the client you become their wellness guide. This also allows you to generate a robust client list and have a successful practice that is sustainable.
Don't practice alone. Our active community of practitioners frequently share research and work together on protocols. This dedicated community forum gives you access to your instructors to ask questions and connect with other wellness professionals. It's a perfect place to collaborate on difficult cases, continue your learning, and get the feedback you need!
We have successfully grown our individual wellness businesses through offering GI MAP™ testing. By working together to solve difficult cases, we realized the benefit of sharing our research and experience. We created this course as a resource to help you incorporate GI Mapping into your practice or to begin a virtual practice like we did. Taking this course will streamline your learning and give you access to a community of practitioners to connect with and share knowledge - just like we did.
"Prior to meeting with Eliza, I had been seen at the number one hospital in the country. I was seen for ongoing GI issues and a recurring eye infection. After multiple failed rounds of antibiotics, I decided to meet with Eliza. After completing the GI MAP™, I was placed on a protocol tailored specifically for me. In a short period of time an eye infection that over 10 doctors could not diagnose went away. GI mapping has changed my life!"
“I highly recommend working with Julie to get to the root of your gut issues! This has by far been the best thing I've ever done for my overall health. The results are amazing, even in ways I did not anticipate! Less fatigue, better results from my workouts (I can actually even see ab muscles sometimes!), improved mood, less PMS symptoms, regular bowel movements, none of the horrible, smelly gas, less bloating, actually lost a few pounds, better sleep, not taking PPI drugs anymore!”
"I decided to do GI mapping with Eliza after noticing issues with my sleep, weight loss I couldn't correct, and anxiety that impacted my ability to function during the day. Eliza was able to identify and target my root gut issues and formulate a plan of action. Since completing her protocol, I have been sleeping better, focus without issues, less brain fog, and have since sustained a healthy weight. I am so happy with my results and thankful for her expertise."
“Julie’s approach to gathering my symptoms, conducting testing, and sharing my results was supportive and helped me feel like there was hope in feeling better. The healing protocol she recommended was extensive, but she broke it down into easily consumable pieces that moved me from feeling overwhelmed to feeling in control and action-oriented. And she followed up! Rare in our current medical community....”
“The final step in the healing of my gut and pathogen that was wreaking havoc on my body and life was doing the GI mapping and protocol that Eliza created for me. The mapping was so informative and gave me the will power to push through my 90-day protocol. I loved working with Eliza, she was honest, loving, and available for me throughout my healing journey!”
“I knew I had gut issues for a long time. I was always bloated, indigestion, gas, and constipation. I did not know how much your weight was connected. I took all the supplements you gave me but honestly didn’t do the diet changes like I should have. I cannot believe that I lost 13 lbs just by fixing my gut! Thank you!”
