Have you ever been told your symptoms weren’t “that bad?”

How about that it was “just IBS?”

Or maybe that your fatigue, acne, and chronic bloating (or any other symptom) were just normal for you.

Your doctors – maybe even your family and friends – were telling you to get over it, live with it, forget about it. But you knew deep down that you deserved to feel better.

When my doctor told me it was just IBS, I took my health and happiness into my own hands. What began with the SCD diet turned into a lifelong pursuit of health and happiness – and the same thing happened to my friend Liz.

Today, I’m excited to introduce you to Liz and let her share her story of healing with you.

Dawn SCD Success Story

As humans, most of us don’t like to be told “Do this or else!” (I think it’s pretty obvious why.)

I can’t even begin to count the number of times I was told the only answer to managing my Celiac disease symptoms was medication and the gluten free diet… or else I’d continue to feel worse and worse.

But I fully believe if I would have listened to the ultimatums of multiple doctors, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

And neither would Dawn, who I’m really excited to introduce to you.

Through the recounting of her journey, Dawn shows us the importance of being our own health advocate and believing in the body’s natural ability to heal.

Deep down, she knew medication and surgery wasn’t the only route for her Ulcerative Colitis diagnosis that had her glued to the toilet 15 times a day.

Instead, she took it upon herself to attack the root of the issue.

After intensely searching online, she found the SCD diet and felt like a new person within just 17 days of starting.

If your back’s against the wall and you’ve been told there are no other options, please read Dawn’s story below.

Darla-D-SCD-Success-Story-Image-1

Have you ever feared something to the point where it’s all you thought about – all day, every day?

For myself, Darla, and so many others it was our health.

What Doctor should I see now? Am I dying? What if this doesn’t work?

These were typical thoughts that ran through my head on a daily basis and it was exhausting.

Those same fears plagued Darla for 25 years, as she exhausted all options to relieve her painful constipation symptoms.

After just 5 days on the SCD diet, she finally found the relief she was so desperate to find.

All the pain, bloating, fear, doctor appointments and embarrassment she once knew as normal are completely gone.

Darla has not only helped herself, but she’s implemented SCD/GAPS, functional and integrative medicine principles into the nutrition curriculum of the university she is currently teaching at.

If you’re ready to stop fearing your health and overcome that lost feeling that may be lurking inside, continue reading about Darla’s amazing journey. [click to continue…]

how-to-travel-with-a-healthy-gut

Which of these sounds more like you??

I love to travel… seeing new sights, learning about a different culture, the joy of a big, white hotel bed.

…or…

Traveling stresses me out… breathing in recycled air on the plane, dust-mite ridden hotel beds, eating wilted salads (or worse!) in the airport.

I used to be firmly in the second camp, and I avoided traveling for years as a result. When I did have to travel, I failed to plan and wound up returning home in a flare that required weeks to recover from.

This holiday season is different, though. I’m actually excited to travel. The difference? It all has to do with what I’m planning and packing. You know that saying “failing to plan is planning to fail?” It’s especially true for your digestive health while traveling.

Here’s what I’m stashing in my suitcase to stay healthy while traveling. Whether you’re going on vacation or to visit family and friends, I hope these resources make your trip enjoyable and memorable for all the right reasons. [click to continue…]
