MBODY360 and Dr. Vincent Pedre Launch “THE HAPPY GUT® APP, Based on Pedre’s Best-Selling Book “Happy Gut, The Cleansing Program To Help You Lose Weight, Gain Energy, and Eliminate Pain.”
New York, NY – May 8, 2017 – MBODY360, the mobile platform for health, nutrition, and wellness coaching, and Dr. Vincent Pedre, a leading expert on gut health and author of Happy Gut, announce the release of THE HAPPY GUT® APP – a groundbreaking mobile app built on the MBODY360 platform, now available for sale on iTunes.
The launch of The Happy Gut App follows the paperback release of Dr. Pedre’s book, HAPPY GUT (HarperCollins); his media appearances on Dr. Oz, Good Morning America and his HappyGutLife.com platform. MBODY360 worked with Dr. Pedre’s lifestyle protocol outlined in his best-selling book, cleanse and dietary products, and created the new app for anyone to follow the plan and track their own progress and results with new habits of healthy eating, movement, and relaxation. “THE HAPPY GUT® APP makes my easy-to-follow protocol even easier!,” says integrative physician and functional medicine, Dr. Pedre. “My 28-day Gut C.A.R.E.™—Cleanse, Activate, Restore, and Enhance—program is the first step towards optimal health, a 360-degree program of cleansing, body healing, healthy eating, movement, and meditation practice. It is intended to bring relief from gut-related health symptoms and set the stage for deeper healing. The new app goes even further, and now makes the optimal health protocol of my comprehensive 28-day total cleansing, nutrition, and wellness program accessible to anyone.”,
MBODY360 CEO Kari Thorstensen states, “We are excited to partner with Dr. Pedre. We’ve seen the powerful results of his 4-Step Happy Gut C.A.R.E. program and are delighted to provide support to people as they begin their journey to health.”
“This app is also a perfect example of how versatile the MBODY360 platform really is for delivering powerful health and wellness expertise, and reach and engage more people in taking charge of their own health,” Thorstensen continues. “Not only does our subscription platform give coaches and practitioners the ability to brand their practice, deliver personalized plans, and support clients patients in between visits, but for leading practitioners, authors, and experts like Dr. Pedre, MBODY360 can also turn their proprietary protocol, plan, and knowledge into a custom mobile app that can reach a much wider potential audience, and generate additional revenue.”
The Happy Gut App is powered by the same technology MBODY360 uses for its subscription-based coaching platform and shares many of its unique features and capabilities. The app makes The Happy Gut 28-Day Cleanse protocol easy-to-follow, intuitive, and personalized for each user.
App features include:
- Tracking for Weight, Nutrition, Sleep, Symptoms, Exercise, Meditation and More
- Detailed Daily Meal Plans
- Delicious, Healthy, Easy-to-Prepare Recipes
- Shopping Lists
- Supplement Recommendations
- Educational Videos and Content
- Automated Messages and Reminders help keep users on track
- Syncing with fitness devices and apps (Apple Health, Google Fit, Jawbone, Withings, Fitbit)
“A healthy gut makes for a healthy body. It’s that simple,” explains Pedre. “Yet, it’s taken over 100 years to catch up with what holistic doctors were preaching long ago. Start with the gut. It’s the seat of all health. If your gut is inflamed by stress, sleep disturbances, wrong food choices, food sensitivities, dysbiosis, and/or leaky gut syndrome, you may have symptoms that seem so remote to your gut it never even crossed your mind they might be related. Now, with the launch of the Happy Gut mobile app, you get a daily, step-by-step program delivered straight to the mobile phone, that anyone can use to begin the process of strengthening their gut health. And it makes it so much easier for anyone to see improvements in symptoms and overall health and well-being.”
“The Happy Gut App is designed as a stand-alone, self-guided program or as a practical companion to the Happy Gut book,” Dr. Pedre says. “Choosing MBODY360 for the creation of a mobile version of Happy Gut made perfect sense, as it enables so many more people, whether they read the book or not, to take advantage of a practical way to support their overall health and wellness.”
Note: The Healthy Gut App is not intended as a replacement for appropriate medical supervision, and Dr. Pedre does not offer direct support to those who choose to follow the Happy Gut Cleanse program provided in the app.

About Happy Gut
Following the success of the bestselling Clean Gut and Wheat Belly comes this essential guide to improving digestive health from an expert in functional medicine—who reveals why everything that ails us, from fatigue to weight gain to bloating and bad skin, can be traced back to the gut, and shares his cleansing plan to help us reclaim our health.
Dr. Vincent Pedre understands gut problems firsthand. He suffered from IBS for years before becoming an expert in functional medicine and learning how to heal his body from the inside. Dr. Pedre used his own experience to develop The Gut C.A.R.E.™ Program—an approach that draws from both Western and Eastern methodologies, combining integrative and functional medicine—that has a proven success record in his private practice in New York. Now, for the first time, Dr. Pedre makes his revolutionary plan for health and wellness available to everyone.
Happy Gut takes readers step-by-step through Gut C.A.R.E.™—Cleanse, Activate, Restore, and Enhance—which eliminates food triggers, clears the gut of unfriendly pathogens, and replaces them with healthy probiotics and nutrients that repair and heal the gut. Rather than masking symptoms with medication, he shows us how to address the problem at its core to restore the gastrointestinal system to its proper functioning state. By fixing problems in the gut, followers of Dr. Pedre’s program have found that their other health woes are also cured and have lost weight, gained energy, and improved seemingly unrelated issues, such as seasonal allergies, in addition to eliminating their chronic muscle and abdominal pain.
Complete with recipes and meal plans including gluten-free, low-fat, and vegetarian options, a 28-day gut cleanse, yoga postures to help digestion, and testimonials from many of his patients, Happy Gut will help you feel better and eliminate gut issues for life.
