Do you ever wish someone could help you figure out the right nutrition plan for managing your Crohn’s or Ulcerative Colitis symptoms?

Do you want to stop guessing about nutrition, and find the foods that work for you?

Maybe you’re confused by all the contradictory information you see online.

Or you’d like to figure out what the scientists are discovering about IBD, but you don’t know where you go to find reliable information.

You might feel worn out from trying to keep up with all the different diets (SCD, AIP, Paleo, Low FODMAP, etc.).

You could be having trouble figuring out what foods are helpful, and which ones to avoid – or perhaps you’ve restricted your diet so much that you can hardly eat anything at all.

You know you could make peace with food and reclaim the freedom you’ve been missing – if someone could just walk you through the process and give you the latest research.

You’re not alone. A lot of people like you just need a little guidance in finding what’s truly evidence based nutrition- and what really works.

We are proud to have helped hundreds of IBD patients like you each year find symptom reduction, improved energy and be able to expand their diets. If you are ready to stop guessing and hand it over to experts- we got you covered!

That’s why we have created a brand new group program specifically for IBD patients

who want the latest research and need some help finding the best IBD nutrition approaches.

IBD Symptom Remission Is Possible.

It is possible to create a nutrition plan that helps you achieve symptom remission and stay symptom-free longer. You can figure out a long-term nutrition solution that complements your medical treatment plan and helps you reduce your risk in the long term.

It’s also possible to expand your diet so you don’t feel so restricted, and choose meal plans that don’t feel overwhelming.

We can give you an evidence-based approach that gives you a clear plan for what to put on your plate to help you reduce your symptoms and stop guessing on what is effective.

Hi, We are the

Crohn’s and Colitis Dietitians™

Hi-  I’m Ashley Hurst and I lead this group program alongside my team- Taryn Mattern, Rebecca Goodrich and Christa Smith. We have a private practice where we serve many Crohn’s and Colitis patients and those living with other painful digestive conditions.

I’ve created this group program specifically for IBD patients seeking a place to start. After my diagnosis, I felt confused and disappointed by my limited treatment options – so I dedicated the next 10 years to learning everything I could about managing IBD symptoms with nutrition.

As a team, we have had the privilege of working with hundreds of patients with digestive challenges, and we have seen the incredible transformations that are possible for people with IBD.

In our current practice, we primarily work one-on-one with patients – but now I want to bring this evidence-based approach to more people, in an affordable group coaching format.

That’s why I’ve created this group program.

Get Results 

What’s most important is not what you learn but the results you get from implementing what you learn.

We have had hundreds of IBD patients like you take our program and we have seen results like the ones to the right.

We have seen hundreds of IBD patients with all different levels of severity improve energy, reduce symptoms and expand their diets using the tools we provide in our program. 


Stop Guessing and Have a Plan

The value of passing on your nutrition to experts is huge.

When you hand over your nutrition to people who have spent years dedicated to understanding what works for IBD – it allows for you to find the most effective strategies quicker AND reduces your stress significantly since you are no longer guessing. 

In the same way that searching forums to find how much medication to take wouldn’t lead to great results- leaving your nutrition to google/forums doesn’t either.

As practitioners, we spend hours each week reading research to keep up with the ever changing landscape of IBD nutrition so that you don’t have to.

If you feel like you are guessing- we got you covered in our program!

Hear from other group program participants…

Will & Karen

What I’ve liked most about this program is being able to have all of the answers I need all in one place. As a mom, I was concerned for my son and using forums and google searches to get the information I needed which I knew wasn’t the best. Now instead of guessing, I feel we have a solid nutrition plan in place and the tools we need to get through the ups and downs of IBD. I feel much more confident in my sons (Will) food choices & nutrition plan. 


I had been in a flare for over 12 years and didn’t know what remission was like, after 3 months with Ashley I’m finally in remission! I can honestly say that she has changed my life! I was very hesitant to try out what I thought would be more generic advice at but I was pleasantly surprised. She doesn’t judge your case based on someone else’s and she truly listens to you. I HIGHLY recommend her, especially if you have IBD, Crohn’s or Colitis!


I don’t think I’ll ever go without the support of a Dietitian after working through this program. I learned about which supplements were most effective and was able to cut back on non-essential things I was taking. I’ve noticed a big reduction in my gut symptoms and even joint pain after incorporating what I learned. I enjoyed how concise and seamless the process was. I honestly wish I would have had access to this program sooner!


Are you looking for even more customized guidance?

Our Crohn’s and Colitis Remission Blueprint is a great starting point.

However, if your priority is 1:1 guidance and you are ready to dive deeper we also offer a program specifically for this.

We are very selective about who we work with in this program since we prioritize results and want to make sure each person gets the support and accountability they need to be successful.

This program is specifically for those who know results do not happen overtime and are willing to work on things for 6 months.
