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 stress and anxiety issues such as:
Cole, a 32-year-old accomplished author and business owner, was experiencing poor sleep, mood swings, stress, and chronic injuries. He was on the verge of burnout at work and he felt too fatigued and unmotivated to exercise and choose good nutrition.
Jenny, a senior performance director, was so stressed she couldn’t sleep, struggled with GI issues, and found it difficult to keep up with her demanding work schedule, which frequently required traveling and eating on the go.
Cynthia came to Ixcela to improve her emotional health and lower her stress. She felt an unusual amount of agitation toward others, and depression was beginning to creep in. She was losing focus at work and felt so burnt out that her happiness—and her job—were on the line.
Ixcela takes a holistic approach to improving health and reducing stress. While you may see some of the common stress reduction techniques such as meditation, there’s so much more that can be done to support stress levels.
Depending on your Ixcela testing results, you may need more protein, antioxidants, sunshine, or even 30 minutes more sleep per night to support the metabolites related to stress. During your one-to-one virtual session with your Ixcela registered dietitian, you’ll be guided on exactly what to do based on what feels most realistic for you right now.
About 90% of serotonin originates in the gut. Serotonin is one of the most important signaling molecules within the gut and is derived from the amino acid tryptophan. Not only does serotonin contribute to our overall mood and ability to fall asleep, but it also plays a pivotal role in initiating digestion. Ixcela tests both serotonin and tryptophan to help us understand if we need to prioritize nutrition, supplementation, or sleep recommendations to optimize these levels.

It’s important to consult your doctor before starting any supplement, dietary, or exercise program, including Ixcela.
Ixcela takes a food-first approach to help clients improve their health. You’ll also be given sleep and restorative practices to try. Through various habit shifts based on Ixcela testing results, our clients have reported feeling less stressed, having more energy, and having an improved mood after working with one of our registered dietitians for 90 days.
No. Food sensitivities are often a symptom of a damaged or imbalanced gut. Ixcela testing and guidance from one of our registered dietitians will help you understand what may be the culprit behind symptoms related to food sensitivities.
No. Insurance does not cover Ixcela programs. If you have questions about FSA/HSA reimbursement eligibility, please speak to your doctor.
