When the body cannot access the building blocks it needs, a host of chronic conditions can arise. Ixcela addresses frustrating issues such as hormone imbalances, autoimmune symptoms, high cholesterol, and difficulty sleeping by giving the microbiome—and you—the support needed to thrive.
No two plans are the same! In addition to customizing plans based on test results, our dietitians often make tweaks for our clients dealing with chronic conditions such as:
Greg, an engineer, experienced extreme fatigue that left him falling asleep at his desk. He also struggled with insomnia, depression, weight fluctuations, and trouble focusing despite years of “trying everything” to manage his hypothyroidism and hypoparathyroidism symptoms.
Becky dealt with poor sleep, low energy, and hot flashes at night that would affect her ability to focus at work and to exercise. This completely disrupted her day-to-day life and began to weigh on her mentally and emotionally as well. She came to Ixcela seeking a food-first approach to better manage her symptoms.
Stephen came to Ixcela worried about his rising cholesterol and A1C (blood glucose) levels—issues that run in his family. He was also struggling to shed the 10 pounds he gained during the pandemic.
Ixcela testing frequency depends on your goals and symptoms. You can simply start with the Kickstart Assessment Program (a single test and 45-minute results review session with an Ixcela registered dietitian) to assess your current status and implement your action plan on your own.
If you’re experiencing chronic symptoms, you may find that a 90-day program with weekly check-ins and regular retesting is helpful to have more guidance and accountability. There's no obligation to enroll in a 90-day program. Your Ixcela dietitian will work with you to determine the best testing frequency based on your unique needs and goals.
Minimally, we recommend testing at least once a year to monitor your health and recalibrate your personalized nutrition and lifestyle recommendations as your activity levels, stress, nutrition, sleep, and lifestyle habits change.
