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.

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.
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…]

Are you starting to view your health condition as a lifetime prison sentence?
If you’ve convinced yourself there’s no way out, we need to talk.
I’ve been there. Back when I was sick, I was so sure my health would be the end of me that I wrote out my own will.
I broke free of those chains and so did our friend, Teresa.
Despite the fact that her symptoms were so bad she was forced to quit her job, she refused to just accept it as her normal.
She is now a happy and healthy person, who spends her time camping and traveling the world.
If you’re needing some hope today, don’t miss Teresa’s inspiring story.

Jumping from diet to diet in hopes of finding the magic one is probably something each of us has experienced at one time or another.
Truth is, there isn’t one magic diet out there, as much as I wanted that to be true myself.
As a lifetime sufferer of digestive issues, our friend, and Solving Leaky Gut Community Member, Montse, tried everything from vegan to a raw diet.
In her search for something better, she found the Solving Leaky Gut Program and hoped it would lead her on a path she could trust in.
And it did.
In just 9 days, the gas, cramps, and bloating disappeared and she was finally able to begin stabilizing her weight.
Montse’s story is such an inspiration and is a great example of what’s possible when we’re willing to adapt and find just what it is our bodies need. [click to continue…]
