Conditions We Treat

GI Alliance: “Digestive Disease Continues to Rise Among Americans”

It’s hard out there for a gut. Each year, 62 million Americans are diagnosed with a digestive disorder; many go undiagnosed.


Why? Chronic conditions are uniquely complex, misunderstood, and quite frankly, un(poop)ular. So we decided to solve it—gut first.

Get to the Bottom of it

Salvo Health takes a comprehensive approach. Our Care Teams look at everything from your labs to your lifestyle to identify and treat the root cause of chronic conditions—all via our mobile app, on your schedule.
