“You can delete all other celiac/gluten-free apps because MyHealthyGut encompasses it all!”

"I love how approachable it [MyHealthyGut] is and I love the tone of the content! It’s also really 'speaking my language' as a dietitian with a food first approach, with all the research evidence (and links). I think it’s the perfect balance of for fee and free as well. It’s often hard to strike that balance but MyHealthyGut has done it well!”

“I wish that I’d had an app like this while I was struggling to figure out what was wrong with my digestion… MyHealthyGut would have saved me time, money and heartache. Instead, I had to figure things out on my own and it wasn’t always easy to sort out symptoms, log my food intake and find current information based on science.”

“MyHealthyGut is extremely user friendly and will empower individuals to find a link between their diet and gastrointestinal symptoms. The app provides realistic tips for managing a strict, lifelong gluten-free diet and may certainly increase quality of life for individuals with these tools and information at their fingertips.”
