About Dr. Steven Gundry

Dr. Steven Gundry, creator of the website GundryMD.com, is “one of the world's most celebrated pediatric heart surgeons” who has created a new view of health and wellness that he promises can help everyone live their best life.  

How Does It Work?

As a heart surgeon, Dr. Steven Gundry regularly witnessed the difficulties people have when their bodies become further and further entrenched into issues of bad health, and how many people believe that these problems can only be fixed with prescription drugs or even major surgeries.

Dr. Gundry, on the other hand, began to realize that there was a much simpler and easier way to bring your body back from the brink of serious medical concerns and back to a state of great health and wellness, which he calls “Holobiotics.”

To understand Holobiotics, first people must know that their entire body is dominated by different kinds of microbes. Some of these microbes are good while others are bad, and unfortunately most people choose a diet and lifestyle that kills off their good microbes and increases the growth and multiplication of bad microbes. This loss of microbe balance eventually throws off the wellness balance of your whole body. 

Holobiotics is the phrase Dr. Gundry created for the diet and lifestyle choices people must make in order to bring this microbe ratio back into balance in order to lose weight and improve their health. All products sold on Gundry MD have this goal in mind, as does his “Dr. Gundry’s Diet Evolution” book. 

Ingredients and Side Effects

Currently Gundry MD is only selling three individual products, including two health supplements and a skincare product called Correct + Calm Redness Relief Cream. Each individual product page will provide customers with a full description of how to use the product, the benefits they can expect from regular use, and a full list of ingredients that are included in each product so customers can tell in advance if they have any sensitivities or known side effects.  

Cost/Price Plans

All the information available on this website is completely free of charge, so customers can get a better and more well-rounded understanding of the Holobiotics theory of health. At this time, Dr. Gundry’s diet book is not for sale on his own website, but rather through other online retailers like Amazon.com. 

For the products which are currently for sale on this website, prices will vary depending on what you are ordering, but are generally priced between $30.00 and $40.00. These products include free shipping and will be discounted if you choose to purchase them in larger volumes.  

Refund Policy

There is actually a serious discrepancy in the information this website provides on their Refund Policy. The website sales page claims that they offer a 90 Day Refund Policy, where customers can expect a refund of the purchase price in the first 90 days with "no questions, no hassle.”

However, the website’s Terms & Conditions don’t explain the Refund Policy in this same way. Instead, they say the Refund Policy is limited to just 30 days with a valid proof of purchase. Any returns made after 30 days will only be accepted for an exchange, and any products returned after 45 days will not be given a refund or exchange. 

Obviously this is a fairly significant discrepancy in these two policies, so concerned customers should contact the Customer Service team for a clarification before they finalize their purchase. 

Customer Service Contact Info

Customers who would like to contact Customer Service with any questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by phone at 800-852-0477, by email at [email protected], or by submitting them directly to their website through their Contact link.

Reputation

Unfortunately there are very few reviews available for this website and their products at this time, and those that are available are somewhat mixed in tone, though it would be fair to say that they seem generally positive for the most part.

That being said, customers should be uncomfortable with the clear issues of the Gundry MD Refund Policy, and customers really shouldn’t make any purchases from this website until they speak to someone from Customer Service who can provide full details regarding their returns process, including whether or not products can be open and used and how long customers have to return them. 

Competitors and Alternatives?

Certainly there are many different health and wellness books on the market, diet plans on the market, nutritional supplements on the market, and skincare products on the market, so customers looking for alternatives will really need to consider what it is they are specifically looking for before finding an appropriate alternative to Gundry MD.

Total Restore



September10, 2020

Before my story (because it is long) I wan to say that Total Restore really worked for me. I am a skeptic in regard to the type of promotional videos like Stephen Gundry's and of products promoted by them.. Frankly, I hate them - too much talk and repeated information. A waste of time, and I am 63, and do not want to waste my time. But this year I had a phase of serious trouble beginning with diarrhea that would not cease for six weeks and then exrended into serious stomach pains. Due to the covid 19 shutdown at the time, I also had trouble getting a doctor's appointment. It became scary and exhausting. At the six week point my ex-husband gave me some of his Total Restore capsules. I took 2 a day, and within two days my diarrhea stopped, and the stomach pain eased. I had a supply for four days from my ex-husband - so I ran out. Within a day all my symptoms reappeared. My ex-husband then gave me enough for a week. My symptoms receded again the next day, meaning the diarrhea stopped again. I ordered three bottles at a promotional price. I never do that, and only did it because I already experienced the effects.
The order arrived by the end of the week as promised (I had ordered express because of my symptoms. Initially I still had different elimination but no more diarrhea. My stomach trouble stopped. Over time it all returned to normal.It has now been about three months since I began to take the capsules.
I am still concerned about my digestive issue as neither Urgent care and a battery of tests initially (incl. covid19 test nor a visit to the doctor came up with a diagnosis. I have a referral to a gastroenterologist (long wait). When I forget to take the capsules some mild symptoms return.
I usually take natural products first when I have any health issues which is very rare. I don't get sick often. I knew about a few of the herbs in Total Restore to be effective against diarrhea, but the capsules also seem to address other digestive issues. I am about to re-order Total Restore. "I love It" came up with clicking the five stars. Not the right words for me. I swear by this one.
I was looking up reviews to see if I would buy a Gundry skin product (which is how I know about the terrible promotional videos), and based on reviews here I likely won't. But I may look into his book.

web site bad no summery and pricing and chance to change order



August31, 2020

Ordered, got new offer, then new offer- ended up with 5 orders and no final list of products ordered and price. I got 5 different e-mails telling me the price on a different e-mail. I ended with 15 of the same product- too many and not wanted. Called to complained - no one cared. Called credit card company. I decided I do NOT want any of his products. The web site is set up like a scam to rope you in and should show what is ordered and price of each since each done and need to be able to cancel an item if wanted or not wanted, or see order and prices and get what you want. Sending everything back. Agent said she could see why it could be confusing.
Site needs to be redesigned.

I would echo this review and sound a strong caution. The website's selling system is opaque and misleads you into buying more than you intend or expect. There is no final display of your "shopping basket", with any option to cancel unwanted items. When you get your bank statement you are likely to be in for a nasty shock. I have complained to their customer support and they have agreed to refund for the two items I didn't even know I had ordered. I cannot say whether the medication is any good because I still have not received it, though I paid for it over a month ago (I am in UK). I agree "The site needs to be redesigned".

Olive oil - a complete disaster



July13, 2020

I ordered three bottles of olive oil and was so looking forward using Dr. Gundry's product. I had read a lot about him and his products and thought that I surely couldn't go wrong. Well, I was wrong. The olive oil stank to high-heaven. I mean, we had to clear the room because of the awful smell. And the taste....it was like motor oil.

I contacted customer service and they offered to send me three more bottles, but I declined and offered to send the three bottles back, but they said "keep them." Well, I have them, and they are completely useless.

TRYING TO ANSWER BACK BUT HAVE NO CONFIRMATION



June19, 2020

Hello and thank you for responding. I believe that when advertisements attest to miraculous results and show it through video, then that should happen. This was not my case and I truly thought this would work. I do think that for a product of the price that you indicate, it should do the trick. I see no significant difference, so a commercial gesture on your part would be appreciated.

Regards
Eileen Morilleau

Ps : I hope that you get this as your email address came back to me with a delivery failure !

Spot diminisher



June9, 2020

I am disappointed with the results of having purchased and applied two bottles of the spot diminisher. I wrote to Dr Gundry’s website several times, and all I received was an apology. At one point, I was told I could return the bottles, but they had obviously been used while seeking a result. I don’t like to be had. When a product is good, I says so. But what I do not like are sites that sell products which are expensive and they do not give the announced result.

I Love Dr Gundry



May30, 2020

I have read the Plant Paradox and the Longevity Paradox and have followed his Plant Paradox eating program for almost 2 years. His is the first diet that I have followed that was almost effortless, no cravings for foods not on the "recommended" list.
I lost 25 lbs and have maintained this level. Yes, I cheat once in awhile now because I can! I stay on the diet for health reasons now, not for additional weight loss.

I have tried several of the products, some worked for me, some did not. I did try the spot diminish er, maybe I didn't try it long enough, but I didn't see much difference. Another product did not agree with me. I have never had a problem getting thru the phone lines, and the reps have always been very helpful. Currently I only use the Vitamin D and the Lectin shield, which is use when I am going to cheat on the Paradox diet.

This man is a genius in my opinion. If you want to lose weight and improve your health at the same time do the Plant Paradox diet. It was a godsend for me!
I have tried many diets over the years, this was the easiest one I have found! It doesn't seem like it when you read the allowed foods list, but once you start it's very easy!

Most of all this guy says nothing and never shuts up. Complete waste of time and his "come-on" headlines are just stupid.

Absence of Customer Support



May19, 2020

I just attempted to place an order for Total Restore and had my first order attempt with my Debit card declined. I then tried my MasterCard credit card and it too was declined. About 3 minutes following my credit card order I received a test from my CapitalOne and the charge was "Approved". I then checked with my bank and saw that my first order via Debit Card was also processed and charged against my checking account. I spent 33 minutes on hold to speak with a customer "support" person (Margarita) only to be told that there was nothing she could do. I then spent another 35 mintues on hold waiting for an online support person to text with me. He (Kelsey) said the same thing. Nothing he could do. He suggested that I contact my bank and credit card company to reverse the charges. I would suggest that Dr. Gundry go back to school and get a degree in business/marketing or stay a surgeon and get out of business operations. I wouldn't let Dr. Gundry remove a sliver let alone perform heart surgery on me.
