We hope by now you’ve watched the groundbreaking new film, Origins, featuring 24 of the brightest minds in human and environmental health who revealed the real reason we’re struggling with chronic illness – and how we can reclaim the health and vitality that once came to us naturally.

(HINT: gut health is FINALLY featured as the critical step.)

If you missed it, you have until Saturday, November 22nd to watch it for free.

Access the Full-Length Origins Film at Absolutely No Charge Here.

If you’re anything like me…

Hopefully you’ve been sending this to your family and friends. I’m so grateful that gut health is finally making it into the mainstream, so now I can send the people I care about to something like this instead of talking till I’m blue in the face at holiday parties :)

My friend, Pedram Shojai, OMD, is the guy who made this movie and convened these world-class experts after he ran a large medical practice where he treated the same lifestyle-induced ailments again and again.

While we love sharing tips on health, like ideas to tweak your diet, supplements and lifestyle… one of our core missions is to share powerful, real life success stories with you that inspire hope…

The kind of stories you read when you’re ready to give up…

The kind of stories that help you keep going, if only for just one more day.

And today, we’ve got one that I can’t wait to share with you!

This story was previously published in a magazine, so we weren’t sure if we’d be able to share it. Thankfully, after a few emails, Colleen Pierre, the Editor-in-Chief of the magazine Saratoga Mama, graciously agreed to let us re-publish Haley’s story. (You rock Colleen!!!)

Haley’s story will inspire you with her will to survive and will to fight. Her unwavering determination to beat Crohn’s is one of the most powerful I’ve ever seen.

Not only that, but her talents are giving her a platform to let others know that they have options other than dangerous medications. I can’t express how grateful we are for Haley and her family…

Thank you for being willing to step up and spread awareness about the healing power of eating real food.

Without further ado, here is Haley’s story…

Big news! A new full-length feature film is talking about gut health in a way I’ve never seen before. I was lucky enough to watch an early screening a few weeks ago and it totally blew me away!

And now, you can watch a free screening for the next 10 days. Click here to check it out.

Think about you and the five people you care about most…

What scares me the most about this planet right now is how many human beings are sick.

And there’s a good chance most of them are struggling with more than 1 serious health issue.

And if you’re reading this right now, it’s likely that you’re a part of our community because of a gut health issue in your own life.

If you’re dealing with chronic illness like Steve and I did, you’ve got to hear the simplest and most profound explanation, offered by some of the brightest minds in human and environmental health, for why our guts are completely destroyed – and how we can reclaim the health and vitality that once came to us naturally.

It’s going to be revealed in the global premiere of the brand new, groundbreaking movie Origins.

When I watched it I was blown away . . . and now you can watch it too. Get immediate access here at no charge.

The first time I fired my Doctor, it felt so weird.  I trusted them with my health completely…

After all they work FOR us. So why did it feel so wrong?

In everything but my health, if someone doesn’t do a good job, I have no problem firing them…

Like if I hired someone to mow the lawn and they killed my grass… FIRED.

Or if I hired someone to change my oil and the engine blew up… FIRED.

Or if I hired someone to do my taxes and I ended up in trouble with the IRS… FIRED.

But firing a Doctor is something I never thought I had to do, until they just shrugged their shoulders and wrote another prescription that didn’t work.

The 2nd and 3rd time I fired a Doctor, things went a little easier, but it sure was depressing. I honestly didn’t think there was anyone out there who could figure out what was wrong with me.

Finding a skilled Functional Medicine practitioner was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done in my life… EVER.

Not only was I sick, but working with terrible practitioners literally stole every ounce of my hope.

After years of this, I FINALLY found a truly Skilled Functional Practitioner that put a lot of the pieces together for me and did some amazing work on my body. For the first time, I had hope I could get healthy…

When you’re trying to recover your health, there’s a lot going on inside your body…

How do you find someone who can help?

What questions should you ask?

Are there things you should be looking for in a good practitioner?

Here Are Three Signs a Practitioner Can Help Turn the Tide in Your Favor…

Carol and Sons

Parents have had to fight doctors long enough about the merits of SCD. Good thing more research is coming out confirming that yes, indeed, the Specific Carbohydrate Diet is not doing harm. And in fact it is helping many with inflammatory bowel disease.

Here’s the latest study to support SCD.

And in celebration of that new study, today’s heartwarming story is about Ulcerative Colitis and a Mom’s inner journey as she tries to do anything to help, fix and support her youngest son.

I’m so happy for Luciano (far right) and appreciative of Carol for sharing one of the most inspiring and true life success stories.

Our ebook is the go-to execution manual for SCD. Hope you have a copy.

[Enter Carol]

I recently published a children’s book titled Luciano and His Sunshine Boots. It’s a true story about my youngest son who purchased yellow puddle-stomping boots and called them his “Sunshine Boots.” It’s a heartwarming story about hope, healing, and happiness.
