Love Your Gut Group Program

Finally, a place to get real about your digestive issues and address them naturally

  Enroll in Course

You're here! I'm so happy, and I believe it's meant to be.

Look...you've tried everything - all the diets, detoxes, books, vitamins, and even yoga. But you still don't feel like you have the answers you need 🤔

...And as soon as you start to see results from something, it just as quickly plateaus. So what gives?! 🤨

Love Your Gut is a 12-week immersive group program where you'll learn what actually may behind your gut issues and the tools and information you need to have a healthy gut.

During the program, you will run an advanced lab test, the GI-MAP, to find out what may really be at the root of your digestive troubles, and week-by-week, you'll learn tools to support your digestion for the rest of your life 😍

I've truly been where you are right now, and I know how frustrating, embarrassing, isolating, and difficult having digestive issues can be! In my own health journey recovering from ulcerative colitis, IBS, acid reflux, and leaky gut, I learned what it takes to have a healthy gut. Today, I am a certified functional diagnostic nutrition practitioner and health coach helping clients now do the same.

Let me ask you this...

How would it feel if you finally knew exactly how to have a healthy gut?

What would it be like if you woke up every morning pain-free and full of energy?

How awesome would it be if you could gain a better relationship with food?

IMPORTANT! When you register, you can get started with testing right away! Upon signup, your lab kit (the GI-MAP test) will immediately be put in the mail so that you can run it early on in the program. Early testing means early results, so that you can use the program to its full potential (I highly recommend this).

Why Gut Health? Why Now?

"Supporting intestinal health and restoring the integrity of the gut barrier will be one of the most important goals of medicine in the 21st century." - Chris Kresser

Your Instructor


Kristin Thomas
Kristin Thomas

As a certified health coach, Functional Diagnostic Nutrition practitioner and digestive and autoimmune expert, it's my mission to help you not only recover but thrive again.

I received my Health Coach training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition® (IIN) and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition (FDN), where I studied more than one hundred dietary theories, dozens of functional lab tests, and natural ways to help the body recover and heal.

But maybe more important than any certification, I have over 15 years of experience with digestive health issues. You name it, I’ve had it: ulcerative colitis, IBS, acid reflux, leaky gut, SIBO, h.pylori, parasites, e coli. It was at the point when my gastroenterologist told me I would have to be on heavy medication for the rest of my life or else get my colon removed that I took my health into my own hands.

That’s exactly what I help my clients do today: Gain control so that they understand their digestion at a much deeper level and have the tools and resources to heal their bodies.

- Marquita A., former Love Your Gut program member

"As someone who’s been through the exact same highs and lows of a digestive disorder, Kristin was just the right advisor through this whole process! I tried things I’ve never have dreamed of beforehand and am loving it!"

Frequently Asked Questions


When does the course start and finish?
The course starts as soon as you enroll and ends after 12 weeks. It is a live, guided online course - you decide when you start and we'll guide you the rest of the way.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does 2 years sound? After enrolling, you have access to this course for two full years - across any and all devices you own.
What results can I expect?
Your results are directly correlated to how much effort you put into the program. Since everyone comes into the program in a different stage in their journey, and because we are all complex and amazingly different human beings, I cannot guarantee results, but if you follow the steps I've laid out in this program, and are dedicated to make a change, you will experience exciting change. By the end of the program, you'll have all the know-how and resources to become a life-long health detective and will be well on your way to feeling better - for good.
I've had a really hard time committing to my health in the past. How will this program be different?
This is such a great question. When you're working on your health alone, it can be hard to know which diet is right, how long to stay on it, and what advice and research to believe. Even more, with no accountability or structure, it's so easy to fall off and slip into old habits and beliefs. By joining a group program, it takes a lot of the guesswork out of the equation and offers a ton of accountability, both from myself and other group members. By participating in the Facebook page and tuning into the live Q&A calls, you will always be held accountable and engaged in your actions, which can increase your changes of sticking to your goals for good!
What if I'm traveling for part of the program or unavailable for some of the live calls?
That's okay! This program is done completely online so you won't miss a beat. You will be given access to the program materials via email so you can follow along no matter where you are and at your own pace. So if you are traveling for a week, you can catch up on that week before or after your trip - it's okay! You won't miss a beat :) You will also get lifetime access to all course materials. Each call will be recorded and available to members via email and on the Facebook group afterwards so you can listen at any time.
I'm not in the U.S., can I still join the program?
Yes! The great part about online programs is that anyone can join from anywhere. We will try our best to schedule the weekly live calls during a time that works for a majority of the group, but if you're unable to make some or all of them due to a time zone conflict, they will all be recorded and sent via email and on the Facebook so you won't miss a beat. Note about labs: If you live outside the U.S. or in the states of New York or Rhode Island, we will need to work around specific lab testing guidelines and shipping policies so please contact me so I can set you up with the right testing plan for your location.
Is there a refund policy?
Refunds will be considered within 30 days of purchase and on a case-by-case basis under the following terms. I will only consider refunds for what I call "Action Takers", or those who have participated in the program for a few weeks, read the guides and recipes, participated in the calls and/or Facebook group and given the program a fair shot. As a reminder, this program isn't a miracle pill and isn't magic. Good health takes time, especally if you've been living with bad health for quite some time. What I ask of you, and what your body asks of you, is patience to heal. If after experiencing the program to your fullest you do not feel it's the right fit, contact me within 30 days of purchase. You will forfeit a $75 medical directors fee, which is required to order your lab test as your lab is ordered upon registering. If you have your one-on-one result & recommendations session during the 30 day period to review your lab results, you also will forfeit $150 for that session. Please note that you will not receive your lab results if you cancel within 30 days as often it takes 5 full weeks between when the lab is mailed to you and you receive your test results.
What do the lab tests cost?
The only lab test that is a core part of Love Your Gut is the GI-MAP DNA stool analysis test, which costs $359. This fee is not included in your enrollment cost. You will pay the lab directly when you mail in your lab kit. Some insurance companies may cover or reimburse part of the fee. P ayment can be made with an HSA account or debit/credit card. If you are interested in running other tests, prices vary test-to-test. You can opt to run a food sensitivity test ($335) or SIBO breath test ($149).
What do the protocol supplements typically cost?
Supplement costs vary a lot depending on your specific lab results. You will only need to be on them for 1-3 months depending on the specifics of your lab test, so it’s a short-term investment for a long-term gain.
Do I have to run the lab test?
No, but the findings of the test(s) is what makes this program entirely unique and useful. Often times just by seeing on paper what correlates with your symptoms is enough to plunge you forward in your health journey. But if you would rather just try the recipes, tools, and participate in live and online discussions, I’d love to have you and you will certainly gain a lot!
Can I do this program if I am pregnant or nursing?
Yes, but we will not run lab tests or supplement protocols for you. I do not recommend supplements be used while pregnant or nursing as they can stir up toxins that aren’t good for baby, so if you want to join but are pregnant or nursing, contact me (kristin@thrivebyfood.com) and I will send you a separate registration link at a discounted rate (minus the medical director program fee required to run lab tests).
My family/significant other thinks we can't afford it. What should I do?
I offer a 3-month payment plan if you cannot pay in full upfront. Also, think about it this way: during the program, you may start cutting back on eating out, having desserts and going on coffee runs, and even cancelling some subscriptions as you find more natural ways to live and eat that make you feel good. Think of all the money you've spent to date on supplements that didn't work, diets that flopped and doctor visits that still left you with a handful of questions. I realized I myself spent thousands of dollars on my own trial-and-error before I finally took control of my own health through a group coaching program that was far more affordable than what I was doing before. So, approach this program practically: the money you will save will likely far outweigh the cost of the program. And these cost-savings can continue on far beyond the program itself. You'll only be spending money on food and supplements that truly make you feel good, optimizing your grocery budget and other budgets.
Do I need to have a Facebook page to be a part of the group?
Facebook isn't required to join, but I do feel that the private Facebook group is an incredible resource. Having a whole group to lean on for motivation and support can be instrumental in the process, however in our weekly calls this is also a great place to gain support, accountability, and ask questions so be sure to tune into those as much as you can!
