Helping Residents in Encinitas and Surrounding Areas Heal Their Gut
At Robert Yang Inc., we understand the importance of healthy digestion and the role nutrition plays in gut health. An underlying digestive issue can impact your overall quality of life. In fact, one third to one half of adults today have a digestive issue. If you have problems going to the bathroom, suffer from bloating and fatigue, or struggle with irritable bowel syndrome, we can help.
Get in touch with us today to schedule an initial consultation and learn how to heal your gut.

Robert Yang’s Complete Digestive Wellness and Support Program
We have helped numerous clients address and treat their digestive disorders. Our digestive wellness and support program addresses digestive issues holistically, acknowledging that there may be multiple factors contributing to what is going on in your gut.
This program begins with an initial consultation where we get an understanding of your health, lifestyle choices, sleep, stress level, and overall wellbeing. From there, we ask you to keep a food journal, so we can best understand your nutrition. Then, we order lab testing for you to determine if there is an overgrowth of bacteria, parasite and/or yeast that needs to be addressed. In addition, markers for excess inflammation and leaky gut will be tested. We can also conduct a food sensitivity test to empower you to make the best nutrition choices possible.
How Do You Improve Your Gut Microbiome?
In a healthy gut, there is a symbiotic relationship with bacteria in the small and large intestine called the gut microbiome. The gut microbiome regulates your gut and can affect your hormones, allergies, skin, immune system, and the brain. Here are some ways to improve your gut microbiome:
- Eat cruciferous vegetables and fruit high in fiber
- Avoid alcohol, sugar, processed foods, and industrial seed oils
- Reduce stress
- Get enough sleep
- Exercise regularly
- Stay hydrated
- Chew your food
- Get tested for food intolerances

Your initial nutrition consultation will be a Telehealth call through Healthie where we will review your completed Health History form and the required Seven-Day Food journal. Food journals can be done through the convenience of the Healthie app and require you to snap a picture of what you ate during the day and write a brief description of your meal. During your initial nutrition consultation Robert will make recommendations for laboratory tests that may be appropriate for your specific health issues.

It is important to note that another consultation will need to be scheduled to have your laboratory tests reviewed by Robert. During this time, he will also create a recommended therapeutic support plan of action. This consultation takes about 30 to 60 minutes.

Cancellation and Reschedule Policy
When an appointment is scheduled, time is reserved especially for you and no one else. This appointment is a commitment you and the practitioner have made to your health. Since our appointments are much longer than standard office visits, cancellations are significant interruptions to the office.
When you do not cancel an appointment promptly, you may be preventing another client from getting much-needed treatment. Thus, a minimum of 2 weeks notice is required for all cancellations and reschedules. If an appointment is cancelled less than 2 weeks prior to your appointment you will be charged a $50 late fee.
You will forfeit your session if the appointment is cancelled within the 1 week period and be charged for your session.
There will be a 100% office visit charge ($300 for 1 hour) for “no-shows,” late cancellations or reschedules that can’t be filled.
