Bridgitte Carroll is a functional medicine dietitian and & the founder and CEO of GutPersonal, a supplement company that empowers everyone to eliminate gut issues FOR GOOD through a personalized approach.
After healing a lifelong struggle with her gut, Bridgitte has spent a decade studying functional medicine and nutrition as a registered functional dietitian. She built a 7 figure company in just 16 months during the pandemic! She launched GutPersonal as her way to change the world in a BIG way. Her mission there is to improve the health and wealth of all women.
GutPersonal is female founded with mostly female investors. Bridgitte surrounds herself and works with women who WANT IT ALL: an ultra successful business, to feel amazing and to absolutely love their life.
"I think it's important to go back to my health struggles - because that's how I got into this. So I was in school to become a dietician in undergrad, and I was on five different medications for five different things. I was on thyroid medication, migraine medication, ADHD meds, birth control to regulate my hormones, everything under the sun. I was even on MiraLax to go to the bathroom every day and my whole body was falling apart, and I was the healthiest eater I knew.
So what I was learning in undergrad was food is medicine, and I was eating so healthy, but it wasn't shifting anything for me. And I know a lot of women can relate to that. They feel like they're everything right - all their labs are normal, yet they're being put on yet another medication or being just told, go home and try to feel better. Being a dietician, I was like, this doesn't make sense. If food is medicine, why don't I feel my best? I'm just getting dismissed by doctors.
So I found the field of functional medicine, and functional medicine really gets to the root cause of imbalances. I interned, and as us high performing women do, I immersed myself. After going to school for six years, undergrad, then I got my masters... and I decided I was going BACK to school because I had to learn this for myself. I wanted to heal myself, and I want to heal my clients.
So I went back to school and I interned with the leading doctor in functional medicine, Dr. Mark Hyman. Most people know him from Instagram and his work. Through him, I learned about how I could heal my body. Everything I was going through, every medication I was on, every symptom I had, all stemmed back to my gut.
My thyroid was gut related, my migraines gut related, my ADHD was gut related. Everything I was going through was all because my gut was an absolute mess. I healed that and then started bringing it into my practice. I have been working with women for the last eight years and it's amazing how much change and power and personalized medicine and personalized nutrition goes into it.
Originally, I worked with women 1-1 on their gut health, but when the pandemic hit, I launched my company online. And then as a high performing women do, we say, okay, what's the next thing that I can do?
There was such a problem in the supplement industry. It wasn't personalized, there was a lack of education, and a of lack of empowerment. I saw this huge need and I launched GutPersonal November 11th, 2021 and took on female investors. And it's just been such an incredible journey with this company. That's why I do what I do - and I'm so passionate about helping women feel their best.
It's easy to get dismissed by our doctors when we bring up health concerns. Sometimes they don't get tied to the real underlying issues - and instead, they throw prescription medication at us for a quick fix. Bridgitte believes in finding the root of the problem, which is often our gut health.
It feels like being thrown under the rug and you don't know actually what's going on in your own body. It's incredibly disempowering. So the first step that I had to do was work with someone else who wasn't myself, of course, and they were looking at the bigger picture.
They looked at the big picture - all of my symptoms, broke them down and realized a lot of these could be gut related. They tested my gut and my hormones using functional medicine rather than the mainstream approach. And it showed a lot of bad bacteria that affects so many things in the body. As I started to heal those, all of my symptoms went away.
So often we are thrown around from doctor to doctor - we are told to go to a neurologist, go to an endocrinologist, go to a gastroenterologist, but a functional medicine dietician or a functional medicine doctor, a lot of us functional medicine dieticians actually have as much education as a doctor.
We have a whole line of supplements, but really our mission and what we're really striving to do is personalize them. So I know for you and what I recommend to many people is we have this quiz, and it's not just like the quiz that's comes out of a magazine that maybe asks you four questions. It's not a marketing funnel quiz.
This is an actual quiz developed by actual experts, myself and another functional medicine dietician. And it's really accurate and efficient. It's 10 questions that ask you about your goals and what you are struggling with.
We developed this quiz because I wanted an accessible way for people to reach functional medicine. Functional medicine can be an investment. So, I took all that data from tests that I had done forever and put them in this quiz. We've had women get incredible results.
So we then develop a personalized protocol for you when you take the quiz. And then we also have dietitians on staff who have a call with you who help you personalize further, and answer any questions. Because at the end of the day, if you feel empowered, to do something you're going to strive at it.
The quality of your supplements is so important. All of our products are medical grade. I find it so strange that most medical grade supplements are not available to the public. So, I wanted to bring the highest quality to the public, to women, so that they can actually get access to the highest quality without it having to be the most expensive.
So when it comes to our supplements, we make sure it says it is what it is. It doesn't have heavy metals, pesticides or any of the other countless harmful things that could be in them.
I truly believe that we are the only ones capable of setting limits on ourselves - and it comes down to what we believe. We've all heard the phrase "limiting beliefs," but what if we had limitless beliefs?
That's something that's been so powerful for me. I am always working on what I believe is possible for myself as a female entrepreneur, what I believe that I can do. One of my goals, having such a big passion for this company and knowing I can bring it to so many women, is to be an inspiration for women and sell it someday for how much all of these male owned businesses are selling for.
So Limitless to me is a mindset. It is the belief that I have no limits. I can see my full potential. I'm taking action. And I'm not allowing the subconscious to run the show. I'm not allowing my limiting beliefs to affect what I think I can do in the future.
Bridgitte believe that women should have access to the highest quality supplements - so they can unleash the best version of themselves. Our goal at Limitless is to inspire women to break through their limiting beliefs and embrace a mindset of limitless potential, a mission that Bridgitte is excited to support! By taking action in our own lives and striving for more than what society tells us is possible, and taking control of our health so that we can be the very best version of ourselves for our families, our kids, and our businesses - we can can do truly amazing things. We have the power to be limitless!
