Program Overview

Health (and disease) begins in the gut! 

The gut is a complex system and is the center of your body's immune system. Gastrointestinal imbalances can lead to pain and inflammation, autoimmune activation, depression and anxiety, sleep disturbance, hormone imbalances, nutrient deficiencies and so much more. 

This 6-week program will emphasize the key areas affecting your gut health:

  • Gut healing and repair
  • Nutrition and food as medicine 
  • Stress management 
  • Sleep
  • Key dietary supplements  
  • Community support


Each week students will participate in a live group session and learn gut supportive tools and remedies. Live classes will be accompanied by educational content, followed by a Q&A session and time for community support and connection. 

This program also provides comprehensive guidance for our 30-day Paleo template reset diet with our nutritionist and health coach. 

Weekly sessions will run for one hour from noon to 1 PM PST and will be recorded for later viewing if you cannot make a session or if you'd like to review the content again. 

Want to build a solid health foundation for years to come? Start by Loving Your Gut!

Enroll today to begin your journey toward a more balanced gut and a more vital you.

Instructor

Nurse Practitioner

Megan Anderson

Megan Anderson, ANP, is a Nurse Practitioner, who received her nursing degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2004. Megan worked as a staff nurse in both pediatric cardiology/surgery and gynecology/oncology for 3 years before starting graduate school at the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2006. She worked at a Federally Qualified Health Center for 3 years during graduate school before becoming a Board Certified Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner in 2009. In 2010, Megan moved to Fort Collins, Colorado with her husband and son, because they wanted a lifestyle change and easy access to the mountains. Megan worked at another FQHC for 2.5 years with low-income pregnant women, and in 2013, she began working at an integrated medicine clinic. It was there that she was introduced to the paleo/primal lifestyle and then found her way into the world of functional medicine. After completing the ADAPT Program with the Kresser Institute for Functional and Evolutionary Medicine in 2017, she knew that she had found her calling. For the past 3 years, Megan worked at a functional medicine clinic called Balanced Well-Being Healthcare. She has grown as a clinician and honed her skills with functional medicine diagnostic and treatment options. Helping people address underlying chronic issues and get back to feeling their best is what feeds her soul, and she feels grateful every day for the opportunity to help people identify ways to feel and live their best life. Outside of work, she loves spending as much time outdoors as possible with her family and friends – running, hiking, skiing, etc. She is obsessed with all things related to human nature and healthy habit formation, and she is beyond thrilled to work with the California Center for Functional Medicine.
