Have you seen the movie “The Butterfly Effect?”

It’s a powerful movie that shows the effects of how single events in our lives shape them.

If you search your history, it’s likely you’ll find an event or two in which everything changed for the worse with your health. I have them, Jordan has them, every coaching client I ever worked with had them.

Sadly, we don’t typically see the unravelling of our health until we are really suffering.

Petra’s story is a courageous tale that shows this in great detail. I only wish more people knew how quickly one stressful event, or one round of antibiotics can begin the downward health spiral. If they did, they might not end up in the hospital being diagnosed with scary diseases like Crohn’s.

If there’s one thing you take away from this story, I hope it’s the fact that almost all of our health symptoms are connected and if the root issues aren’t addressed, our bodies will continue to break down. [click to continue…]

Let’s say you’re bobbing in the ocean. Struggling to Breathe. Unable to catch your breath. Right now the most important thing in your life is air.

Suddenly, a hand reaches out and pulls you into a boat.

You can catch your breath. You are safe. You can relax. The pain is gone.

When we’re in pain, our brains are wired to make it stop no matter what, which is why taking an acid suppressing drug like a Proton Pump Inhibitor (PPI) feels like a breath of fresh air for someone suffering with heartburn.

But it can be a double-edged sword…

Did you know that recent research suggests that 50% of all of the 13.5 Billion dollars in PPI sales were unnecessary? And the worst part is, what if these unnecessary drugs used to treat your immediate pain were also causing long-term adverse effects on your health?

I know it sounds a bit ridiculous, but I promise it’s not science fiction. It’s really happening.

Getting Rid of Heartburn Is Such a Relief

Heartburn is a problem that 60% of adults in the US suffer with each year. And the TV ads, doctors, and friends tell us the solution is to pop acid suppressing pills like PPIs.

In 2009, as a country we spent 13.5 Billion dollars on these drugs.

Why? Because living with heartburn sucks. It makes eating unenjoyable, it ruins dates, it stops our work and it’s the last thing we want to feel after a hard day…

So when we’re offered a quick fix, approved from our doctors, it’s human nature to take it.

However, the heartburn and GERD problem isn’t being solved… these PPIs are just giving us temporary relief. [click to continue…]

What do you do when the symptoms come raging back?

When that panic rips through your chest and it feels like everything you’ve been working for is all for nothing?

What do you do when that happens and how do you get yourself back to feeling good?

If you’ve ever had a terrible setback, you know how intense and emotionally derailing they can be.

Sometimes, a huge setback can even cause people to give up…

In this video, I cover the 3-step “Emergency Reset Protocol” I used to reset my body after a wicked setback. This is the same protocol we’ve been sharing over the years that restores your hope when it feels like you’re back to square one.

Once you watch this video, use these additional resources to take back control of your health:

Leave a comment and let me know your setback tools that have worked for you in the past.

In good health,

3 Healing Case Studies

One of my favorite questions we get (and have been getting for years) basically comes down to this: “When am I going to get better?

I love this question. Mostly because when I was sick 7 years ago I spent endless hours trolling Google trying to find the answer myself.  So I’m going to share some of the writing I’ve done about this before… because I could reply back with any number of cliché inspirational sayings we have, like:

  • “It took a long time to get sick and it takes a long time to get better”
  • “This healing process is a marathon, not a sprint – you’re doing great!”
  • “Everyone has a custom diet that works for them… you just have to keep testing until you find yours”

Each of these reassuring clichés is completely true, but what I love about it is: it means you’ve already taken an action and started changing your diet/supplements/etc. You already accomplished the most difficult part of taking control of your health by overcoming thoughts in your head like “What if it doesn’t work for me?” or “I don’t have time to cook all this food.

Starting the diet is not only the first step, but it’s the most important one. And it usually means you’re finally on the way to unlocking your body’s natural ability to heal.

So, When Will You Get Better?

We share success stories for one very specific reason… and it’s probably not what you think.

In fact, we have an entire system inside our company to gather success stories and encourage our community to share their stories with others just like them. Each week, we meet as a team and talk about what success stories are currently being worked on and when we can publish them.

It’s one of the most important things we do.

Not because it “toots our own horn.”

Or because we think it’ll get us traffic from Google.

It’s because if I didn’t read numerous online success stories back in 2008 I never would’ve tried the SCD Diet. I may not have healed my gut. I may not have ever started SCD Lifestyle with Steve.

Success stories were the spark that changed my life forever.

And we relentlessly share as many as we can in hopes that it does the same for thousands of other people going through the same struggle I did.

Without success stories, this would be just another blog. Instead, we have a thriving community of incredible people taking control of their health. Today, I’m so happy to share Richelle’s story. She made a choice. She took control. And she’ll never look back!
