"Dr. Wysocki truly cares about his patients. I find that he’s extremely attentive and is always aiming to address the root cause of one’s issues instead of simply prescribing one with medication to mask their symptoms.
I understand what it feels like to be trapped in a cycle of worry and discomfort, unsure how your body will react to everyday activities or an upcoming event. Battling chronic digestive disorders can often leave you feeling misunderstood by traditional medicine. I've seen it time and time again, the years of frustration, searching in vain for a practitioner that can heal your unique issues. It's exhausting, and heartbreaking. And I’m here to tell you, you’re not alone.
I'm Dr. Wysocki, a board-certified naturopathic physician with a specialty in functional gastroenterology. But I'm not just any gut health doctor. With over 20 years of experience in counseling and a keen interest in structural integration, I understand that your health is more than just physical. It's a complex interplay of mental, emotional and physical wellbeing. That’s why my team and I don’t just put a bandaid on your symptoms; We look at the whole person and heal the root cause of your issues. No two bodies are the same, and therefore, no two treatment plans should be either.
Together, let’s embark on a journey to heal your gut, restore balance within your miraculous body, and reclaim the freedom to live your life as you wish.

Heidelberg Testing assesses stomach acid levels at rest, as well as the functional capacity of parietal cells (i.e., the cells in your stomach that produce acid) when they are “challenged” to produce more stomach acid by meals. The testing involves swallowing a small capsule the size of a multivitamin that remains tethered in your stomach by a medical grade silk thread. This capsule communicates the pH of your stomach via radiotelemetry to a nearby computer.
Testing can last anywhere from 30 minutes to 3 hours depending on the physiology of your stomach and the types of testing ordered by your physician. Following testing, the capsule is removed from your stomach and back up through your esophagus. Most patients report that this process feels odd, but is not typically painful.
Heidelberg pH testing has been in use for many years but is often not well-known, mostly due to lack of availability. We have offered Heidelberg pH testing at 8 Hearts for several years now with great success. Physicians often find this testing to be extremely beneficial in managing or clarifying a path for treatment. Our technicians are licensed and board-certified practitioners and highly trained in providing skillful and compassionate testing. We understand the need to provide a supportive environment to minimize understandable apprehension and stress prior to completing the test.
The most common feedback we receive after completing the test:
“That wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be!”
You MUST have an order from a physician to complete this testing. Ask your physician if Heidelberg pH testing is right for you. Please contact us for more information – we welcome calls from your physician as well. Once scheduled, we also provide you with additional guidance for how to best prepare for this particular test.
