Integrative Therapeutics Physicians Elemental Diet for the management of Irritable bowel, Crohns disease, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) and moderate to severe impaired gastrointestinal function. Intended for use under medical supervision for the dietary management of patients with GI dysfunction. For patients who have limited or impaired capacity to digest, absorb, or metabolize ordinary foods and nutrients.
Dosing by Caloric Need: PhysiciansElemental Diet was designed to maintain nutritional sustenance as a sole source of nutrition, and can also be used as a half-elemental diet making dosing dependent upon the caloric needs of each patient. One scoop of PhysiciansElemental Diet = 36 grams, and 150 calories. Each 1,296g bag contains 36 scoops (5,400 calories). Roughly a 3 day supply.
Recommended Use: Thoroughly mix each level scoop (36 g) in 4-8 oz. (118 - 236 mL) chilled or room temperature water. Additional water may be added to the mixture or consumed separately as desired. Consume the mixture slowly over a period of 15 to 60 minutes or more, dependent upon individual comfort. Once mixed, any product that is not consumed after 60 minutes should be refrigerated for a maximum of 24 hours, then shaken or stirred prior to consumption. After opening, store remaining powder in a dry place at room temperature.

The directions say to mix with chilled or room temperature water. Curious if you all know if theres any reason this shouldnt be mixed with warm (or even hot) water. Are any of the ingredients degraded by heat? (Because Im over here living on liquid food and Id love to be able to at least mix things up by occasionally changing the temperature.) Thank you! :)
1 Answer
The formula tends to clump when used with warm or hot water.

I'm tackling SIBO, how often should I be drinking this in a day?
1 Answer
If you are using this for your total calorie intake you will need 12 scoops a day. Each scoop needs at least 8 oz of water with it and should be taken slowly over
a thirty minute period.

how often am i to use this product in a day? 3x a day or whenever i get hungry? 1 scoop 3x a day gives you about 12 days. i'm a bit confused.


1 Answer
It just depends on what problem you are trying to solve. To tackle some more serious problems like SIBO this would be your only source of calories and a bag would last about 3 days. It is probably best to give us a call so we can walk you through the process so you can have the best chance of success.

This powder REALLY resets your gut!
July 8, 2020
I have purchased this and the dextrose free option. I prefer this one over the dextrose free as it is much easier to stir and mix completely with water when you don't have a blender available. I had SIBO the first time I tried this formula, and this along with specific herbal formulas took care of it in 3 weeks. I do a maintenance fast and use this product for one week, twice a year, to make sure I keep my intestines functioning at their best. Another plus this product tastes AMAZING!
ProsTaste great! Easy to mix. You feel full after drinking one serving.
ConsIt's very expensive!

This product was recommended to me by my naturopath for eradication of SIBO. This product works great!! My SIBO is minimal after the 2 weeks of using this to replace food. I initially did not love the vanilla taste but you get use to it after a few days and I may continue to use it as an occasional meal replacement shake.

Tastes great
May 28, 2020
I have Crohn's disease and am currently trying to work through a bowel obstruction that just doesn't seem to want to go away. I'm a little nervous about using this as I typically follow the specific carbohydrate diet and this isn't compliant but it's currently the only thing I can put in my body that doesn't immediately cause me pain (even bone broth or straight collagen peptides are causing me pain right now).

I've only been using this exclusively for a couple of days so I can't review yet for treatment efficacy but as far as palatability this is a winner. I've heard that other forms of enteral nutrition taste awful and I'd venture to say I actually like the taste of this stuff. The ingredients are also far more friendly than in any of the other enteral nutrition formulas I've reviewed. So if you care about what you put into your body, this is definitely the way to go.

As far as cost, I've looked at this compared to building my own elemental diet and it doesn't seem like there's a way to buy this quantity of amino acids and quality vitamins and minerals for less, so unless you do the standard physician prescribed enteral nutrition and it's covered by insurance, there's probably no way to do this for less, so I think the cost is reasonable.

I've ordered the dextrose-free version to try next so I'll write a review for that one re: efficacy once I've used it longer.

Does what its supposed to
May 17, 2020
This is something that actually does what its supposed to; press the reboot button on your digestive system. But the cost is prohibitive. This is not OVitaminPro's fault. Ive checked into similar products and they are all expensive given the amount you need for a minimum of two weeks. Having said that, the product delivers and if you're like me, this is just what I needed. Having already tried a multitude of products.
ProsOVitaminPro people are awesome. Real support and advice. Friendly and personable.
ConsThe diet doesn't taste that good nor did I find it particularly filling.
