Heal Your Gut, Heal Your Life

In recent years, scientists have discovered that the gastrointestinal system has a more complex job than previously appreciated. It not only plays a role in your digestion and nutrient absorption, but also affects your mood, sleep, hormones, immune function, and overall systemic wellness.

What Is A GI-MAP Test?

The GI Microbial Assay Plus (or GI-MAP™) test is a DNA-based stool test that provides a detailed analysis of your gut microbiome. Your microbiome is the population of bacteria, viruses, and parasites that reside in the gut; good and bad.

This test analyzes the levels of both good and bad bacteria, parasites, viruses, worms, and fungi, as well as immune and digestive markers in your gut.

It also allows us to look for markers of inflammation in your gut along with signs of leaky gut syndrome.The custom protocol we build for you aims to improve digestion, mood, immunity, and overall body function.

As we analyze the results of your test, we focus on rebalancing microbes that may be the culprit for a myriad of gut imbalances that lead to systemic imbalances. This “map” allows us to tailor a program that will help restore balance to the biome of your gut.

Everyone can benefit from improving their gut health.

Because this test is so rich in data, even the healthiest of people can find ways to optimize their digestive health.

Often times I recommend that entire families run it together, as many of these pathogens can be passed among families or significant others and by addressing them together, the entire family can feel better and be proactive about their long-term health.

Let Me Lead You Into Wellness

I have helped hundreds of people correct imbalances in their gut with rebalancing strategies that are based on the functional medicine 5 R approach. Read below to learn more about the 5 R approach.

Eliza Bacot, RN, Nurse Practitioner & Certified Wellness Practitioner

I’ve been practicing in healthcare for the past 16 years as an ICU nurse and nurse practitioner. While working in a critical care setting in the hospital my focus was on the study of disease progression. I began to realize that the tools I had to help people become well were limited. So, in an effort to better serve my patients I began studying wellness.

I started to understand how nutrition, stress, exercise and healthy habits all play essential roles in the overall wellness of the human body and its potential for longevity. The body’s natural state is one of wellness, and with the right environment, it can heal itself. I have had success with hundreds of patients by putting together custom protocols that are focused on personalized nutrition, the right supplements to support your body, stress reduction, sleep hygiene and wellness habits.

The GI Map test has been a game-changer for my clients. Everyone’s body is vastly different and with this test, I can see exactly what is going on inside your gut and how we can work to improve your body’s ability to thrive.  

In my entire career, I have never felt more empowered to help people become well. Instead of watching people fail in the ICU, I am helping people heal and live full and happy lives. The best part about what I do is that I am no longer offering a short term fix - together, we are able to get to the root cause of your issues instead of only addressing the symptoms. Through this process, I am giving people the manual to their own bodies so that they can take care of them forever.  

"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 issue. After multiple failed rounds of interventions, I decided to meet with Eliza. After completing the GI mapping, I was placed on a protocol tailored specifically for me.  In a short period of time, I began to feel better. An eye issue that was very challenging and had been ongoing for years disappeared.  Eliza is a wealth of knowledge and is very passionate about natural alternatives, GI mapping has changed my life!"

“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 decided to do GI mapping with Eliza after noticing issues with my sleep, weight loss I couldn't correct, and stress 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, have better focus and attention, and have since sustained a healthy weight. I am so happy with my results and thankful for her expertise."

Here's How It Works

A step-by-step pathway to improving your wellness.

blue circle number 1

Complete A Questionnaire

To be the most effective, I want to learn a little more about your health history and current lifestyle. I also want to know about your wellness goals so they can be addressed as I put together your 90-day protocol. You’ll get access to the questionnaire as soon as you’ve purchased your package.

blue circle number 2

Complete Your GI-MAP™ test

Once you get started and have completed the questionnaire, I will send you the test. There will be very clear instructions on how to collect your stool sample and send it back to Diagnostic Solutions lab. You will pay the lab directly for their analysis of your sample.

Once you mail the test back to the lab it will take 2-3 weeks to get the results and for me to formulate your protocol.

blue circle number 3


During the consultation, we will go over your test results in detail and I will explain your custom protocol based on my assessment, your results and goals. Your plan may include diet recommendations, probiotics, herbal supplements, tools for stress reduction and proper sleep and lifestyle recommendations based on your unique situation.

blue circle number 4


The protocol specifically addresses the imbalances in your gut by utilizing the gut health 5 R protocol framework which focuses on supporting Removal of unfriendly guests, Replacing potential deficiencies, Reinoculating commensal bacteria, Repair for the gut lining, and finally Rebalancing which focuses on important lifestyle changes such as stress reduction, emotional support and sleep habits.

blue circle number 5

90-day ongoing Support

During your 90-day protocol, we will communicate by my client messaging system as needed to assess your progress, address any challenges that may arise and make any necessary adjustments.

blue circle number 6

Post 90 Day Protocol

We recommend re-testing after the first 90-day phase to see how your test results have changed. Once we analyze the results of your second test, we can recommend a maintenance protocol. Many clients find it beneficial to complete annual or bi-annual GI mapping to stay on top of their gut health.

blue circle number 7

How Will You Know It's Working?

You can expect an improvement in your overall wellness that is evidenced by your efforts. Some happen faster than others. Gut healing is slow and can take up to one year to have full improvement. Most people see drastic improvement before the end of the protocol.

Does the GI-MAP™ test cover food allergies or intolerances?

The short answer is no. But, once you heal the gut, food sensitivities tend to improve. 

If after your protocol you are still experiencing symptoms, I can help you to get a comprehensive food sensitivity test through LEAP or an IgG mediated test here.

Food Allergy & Intolerence Testing

If at the beginning of our work together, the symptoms your experiencing seem to be clearly related to certain foods, I can help you to acquire a comprehensive blood test to inform your protocol.
