Your Health Blind Spots are Keeping You Sick

by Steven Wright

Semi-truck blind spot

She left again. I sat devastated on my couch trying to understand what I did wrong. The 3rd woman in a row suddenly broke up with me and ran out of my life.

It made no sense to me. I was a nice guy, with a good job, and I cared. Why didn’t they see this?

Then, my coach helped me see the problem wasn’t with them. It was a massive blind spot I didn’t even know I had. This behavior was driving them out of my life and I had no idea.

The nice guy blind spot was killing my dating life.

Other Blind Spots Kill People

One of the scariest places to find yourself is in a semi-truck’s blind spot. The driver has no idea you’re there. Your body reacts, your heart beats faster, and you just know you’re in danger. And if you can’t speed past him soon, at any moment he could change lanes and wipe you right into the guardrail.

We’ve all had the experience of narrowly avoiding an accident in a car at the last minute by remembering to check our blind spot.

It’s just so easy to be singing, talking or listening to podcasts and forget to use your mirror or look over your shoulder while driving.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in Washington D.C., there are approximately 840,000 side-to-side blind spot collisions with 300 fatalities every year in the United States.

The vehicle blind spot kills people on the road every day. The crazy thing about this blind spot is we know it exists.

But a true blind spot is different.

What a Blind Spot Really Is…

By definition, blind spots are the places you can’t see. They lie in an area of knowledge you don’t yet posses and many times don’t even know is available to you. There are three areas of knowledge.

  1. What you know
  2. What you know that you don’t know
  3. What you don’t know that you don’t know

The last one is where blind spots occur. In this area of knowledge, which is much bigger than the other two, we have blind spots all over the place.

We have money blind spots.

We have relationship blind spots.

We have fashion blind spots.

We have health blind spots.

Blind spots exist in every area of our lives, which is why it’s so important to have great friends, mentors, and coaches. These people can see what we can’t. It’s so obvious to them, but not to us.

We don’t know what we don’t know.

Your Blind Spots Hold You Back

Until I realized that I was being a smothering nice guy, who was passive-aggressively trying to control women, I couldn’t keep a girlfriend. I could attract and date really amazing women, but then they’d get sick of my behavior and run.

My blind spot was killing my dating life. It was holding me back.

Finally, when the pain became intense enough I started investing in coaching help, and it didn’t take long for a coach to point this out and help me change it.

But until this was brought to my attention I had repeated the same painful pattern with women for years.

You Know You Have Health Blind Spots

When it comes to health, most of us freely admit that we don’t know and need help. Even if you aren’t aware of it you do it. You seek a doctor’s help, you ask for advice from friends and family, and you read websites like this.

The problem with health blind spots is that they are much less defined. They are hidden all around you in your food, supplements, beliefs and practitioners.

And so it becomes very easy to get lost in all the searching, info and advice. Recovering health is complex and there’ a massive danger zone that Jordan and I fell into several times.

We kept thinking our blind spots were the very rare ones. We were busy reading, learning and trying all kinds of fringe things. We didn’t know what we didn’t know which was…

Our biggest health blind spots were really common to all sick people.

And are likely the same ones you have.

I Had H. Pylori, Candida, Endolimax Nana…

I might have also had SIBO (who knows). I do know that I had three separate advanced tests that showed positive for (in the following order) Candida, Endolimax nana and finally H. pylori.

I did lots of other regular stool tests that all said I was infection free. But the truth was I was blind and that held me back. It wasn’t until I went after each one that I finally got rid of GI complaints and found that all day energy I was looking for.

So the question is do you have a GI infection?

And what are you going to do about it?

80% of You Have the Following Blind Spot…

The same blind spot that Jordan and I had. A digestive tract infection… or many. All of the ones you’ve read about including Candida, SIBO, parasites, bacterial infections.

They are real and they don’t always show up on stool tests (especially the ones covered by insurance companies). Even the advanced high-end stool tests don’t catch them all the time.

In our experience, someone with a digestive complaint has an 80% chance of an infection. Dr. Tom O’Bryan reports seeing 70-80% of patients showing positive for GI infections.

And organic, free-range diets don’t kill these. Meditation won’t fix them. Digestive enzymes help you deal with them, but don’t get rid of them.

Let us show you what worked to kill our GI infections. Let us help you see this blind spot. The area of knowledge that you don’t know you don’t know is hard to accept.

But as a guy who talks to the top chronic health practitioners in the world, who has talked with 1000s of sick people, trust me when I say this is the blind spot you need to address.

The Specific Carbohydrate Diet Works

We have been doing a Paleo diet with sprouted and soaked alternative grains.
I have gained 26 pounds after losing 44# on the Specific Carb Diet a year and a half ago. I was way too skinny at 96 pounds and 5’1″ tall. My family was beyond worried but I felt great. I couldn’t gain weight so I started eating everything. Eventually I was eating sugar and flour too. I tried the Paleo diet but still had gut problems. I used sprouted and soaked alternate grains, but they were still carbs!!! I finally realized that. Meds (dicyclomine) have taken care of the diarrhea for the most part but still suffer with terrible gas. Now I think I have Candida as well. I am diabetic so I test my blood sugar every morning. I have been off sugar for a couple of weeks again now. It always happens after Christmas I am addicted to sugar and carbs. I don’t want to go to starvation mode again. Kathy
