About Us

Registered Holistic Nutritionist, Cassandra Hope created the IBS Academy after restoring her gut using the 12-week Gut Restore Program created by Dr. Robyn Murphy, ND. Her motivation to create a business centered on helping others find answers to their chronic digestive complaints came from a very personal place.

Dr. Murphy and Cassandra worked diligently together to help Cassandra overcome chronic IBS, food intolerances, and infections, which she suffered from for almost 30 years. The protocol taught in the Gut Restore Program is the same program Dr. Murphy used to help Cassandra find relief from IBS and live symptom free.

Together they bring clinical and first-hand experience and expertise to the academy, in the areas of clinical nutrition, supplementation and stress management to address chronic digestive concerns. They are dedicated to delivering research-based, relevant, and cutting edge information to the IBS Academy’s community.

Cassandra Hope, RHN

Cassandra Hope is a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, with a special focus in stress management and gastrointestinal health.

Her passion for food, health and overcoming self-limiting patterns comes from a place of needing transformation to not just survive, but thrive.

As a young girl, she experienced Childhood PTSD, which contributed to chronic gastrointestinal problems, addictions and poor health for almost 30 years. By going within and healing old wounds, adopting healthy nutrition and exercise habits as well as building a strong tool kit to avoid relapsing, she now lives symptom-free. Cassandra’s purpose in life is to educate and support others in their journey towards finding vitality and long-term health.
