By The Oshi Health Team

We’ve heard from many people suffering from chronic gastrointestinal conditions, and we have listened. Here at Oshi Health, Inc. we understand the importance of holistic and personalized approaches in chronic care management, especially in GI care. Lifestyle factors such as sleep, stress, and diet not only impact your overall Quality of Life, but evidence suggests they can also significantly impact your gut-health.

Specifically, we know that adopting specific condition-related diet plans can be tedious and overwhelming; life gets in the way, time is sparse, and most diet recommendations feel generic and impersonal, forgetting to take into account the context of your condition.

But, managing your GI symptoms and your diet doesn’t have to be a burden.

Through our Virtual GI Symptom Management Pilot Program, we are interested in learning more about how Oshi Health can provide symptom management support to people with chronic GI conditions. Specifically, we want to understand how Registered Dietitians and Health Coaches can work with individuals to successfully identify personal diet-related symptom triggers.
