Dr. Steven Gundry Reviews
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.
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.
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.
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.

Dr. Gundry's order system is deceptive and set up offer you an array of productes before you complete your order.
After purchasing 3 bottles of Bio Complete 3 I was directed to another screen that stated wait you can save 53% on 6 bottles of Bio Complete 3 so I clicked on it. Thinking I was replacing the 3 bottler order with the 6 bottle order. Not so. It was added as a separate order. So now I’m charged with 9 bottles or a total of $332.55. It’s called “slight of hand” transaction.
I called in to review the transaction. I was told they are two totally separate orders. I thought I was replacing the 3 bottle order with the 6 bottle order because the order never finished processing. Their order system is set up to show you 5 or 6 products. You have to click No to get to the next proposition product. After a series of Nos then the original order is confirmed.
I called the 800 number and cancelled the 3 bottle order. I was told it is scheduled to be refunded in 3 to 5 business days. Be very careful when order from Dr. Steven Gundry website. It's rigged to keep peppering you with a bunch of products. Chances are you will double your order with the next screen shot that states wait you can get 53% saving with 6 bottles. Very deceptive ordering system.
Never again! Buyer beware
During the order process, I was offered an upgrade, which to me, meant that instead of the 3months originally ordered and additional 3 months.. from $131 to $168. To which I did. What it actually meant that I ordered 9 months as the original order remains and a separate second order of 6 months is added.
When I realized this the day after the order, I called customer service to cancel the original order. A cancellation request was sent to the shipping area to stop the shipment. I was supposed to receive an email but did not. I emailed the next day (day 2) and was told I was too late to cancel and that it was my mistake in how I understood the upgrade when ordering. If I’d wanted the cancel I should have called. I was then offered 40% return and they won’t send it.
Which insults me. First I did call, and if you can refund me 40% to not ship, you can refund me 100% and not ship. But no, apparently that is not their policy. My order has been shipped (6 days) after the original order. I had my return authorization number prior to receiving the shipping email.
Now I have to pay for the return of the items in order to receive my 100% refund.
Dr? Gundry continues to come out with wonder product after wonder product. I tried his skin products and found that not only do they not work. The "refund policy" is a hoax. I called for a refund and was told that I couldn't apply for 3 months. I would not recommend nor will I ever deal with Dr? Gundry products again. They are just one more addition on a scrap heap of broken promises from a "supposedly" trusted physician. In my humble opinion. The title Doctor has become synonymous with "watch your wallet".
I'm taking Total Restore after watching Dr. Gundry's video. I know it was long. But the logic, the testing, his credentials were enough to convince me to try it and I don't take vitamins of any kind. I also appreciate the emails as there is usually good information whether its a recipe or just another product he has come up with.
I have had pain in my hip, and my shoulder from 30 years of working construction. My new job I was walking 20 miles a week, according to my fitbit.
I don't know how the restore does it, but in the 3 months I have been taking it I have had very little pain in either. It truly amazes me and I only take 2 pills a day to make them last longer...Thanks
I ordered Vital Reds, and Primal Plants two years ago and started on the plant paradox diet. I have been taking his supplements for two years. I found that Dr. Gundry has been the only DOCTOR, that has helped me to feel so much better. I have been to countless Doctors, and Dr. Gundry has been the only one to improve my health with his products and following his diet. Not only that, but he takes a sincere interest in sending emails with exercises, or new recipes, or advice to help you in many different ways. I lost over 30 pounds without ever being hungry. It has been the only diet that is relatively easy to follow, with remarkable diets. I lost 30 pounds 2 years ago and have kept it off without any struggle. Just use his Vital Reds and Primal plants and remove lectins. He also offers a weight loss supplement, but I do not need to use it. I believe whole heartedly, that Dr. Gundry honestly wants to help people like me, that have struggled for years to feel better without any results. Dr. Gundry has been the only Doctor to help me feel better. He is the very BEST.
my 16 year old daughter started on PreBioThrive with my husband and I. I only did it with her for support. I don't have digestive or diet issues. I started my husband because he has both, my daughter just the digestive issues. I was disappointed with the consistency of the powder, as it appears in the advertisement to mix to an invisible state in water. It does not. We have found it best in yogurt, avoiding adding to liquids. It just doesn't work well. My daughter is enjoying a respite from episodic IBS since starting PreBioThrive. That ALONE is very worth it. She is forced to take prophylactic antibiotics often to protect her heart and I have always worried about her good bacteria. We tried probiotics over the years with inconsistent results. This product has given consistent resolution of her GI issues (she used to have to miss school and activities but now feels a freedom and confidence to participate). Also, my husband does feel he is more in control of his carb cravings, another benefit. It is expensive, I paid $199 for 6 containers (each container is a 30 day supply). I also did not like the aggressive sales prompts I had to wade through to make my purchase. at least six to eight times I had to say "no" to the purchase of another product before I could move on from the page. I seriously was uncomfortable as that progressed but went forward because i was so very hopeful for this to make a change in my daughters life. I would advise Dr. Gundry to not do all that. It cheapens his product and will likely turn away sane and cautious people. For now, I plan to reorder when we get to the end. We are on our third of the six bottles. I avoided a monthly shipping with this initial purchase.
I too fell for the endless video and placed an order for the Total Restore. Weeks went by and I never received the product. I did receive a phone call to see if I was ready to order my next bottle though. When I told the person on the call that I never received my order, she told me that their records showed that it was delivered to my door and insisted I place another order. So, does the product work? I guess I'll never know because I am definitely not placing another order with these guys.
This doctor who was purportedly once “one of the world's most celebrated pediatric heart surgeons” has not been a child's (or anyone's) heart surgeon for nearly TWO DECADES...with an undergrad degree from Yale, not his medical degree.
I fell for his auto-play video that goes on and on and on...
The products are a WASTE of money, unless you want expensive urine.
Simply Consume a balanced diet with everything in moderation. And make time for a bit of exercise. SAVE YOUR MONEY.
Another FAD diet bites the dust. I'm done with these former "celebrated" (by whom?) doctors that constantly sell supplements.
