Robyn-Youkilis-Go-With-Your-Gut-SCD-Lifestyle-Solution-Podcast-85

Healing your gut is no small task…

It involves re-engineering your entire life, everything from the food you eat, to the supplements you take, all the way to how much sleep you get.

But no matter what gut-healing “diet” you’re on, or whatever gut-repair supplements you’re taking, there’s one more critical piece of the puzzle.

And if you don’t incorporate this into your healing journey, you’ll never fully recover.

That tool?

The powerful connection between your gut and your mind.

This is why I’m so excited I got to sit down with my friend, Robyn Youkilis, and chat about this with her.

I love Robyn for her slightly-sassy, no-nonsense tips and her amazing recipes. Plus, she makes this whole healthy living thing look like a total party. (Don’t believe me? Go check out her Instagram – this girl bounces from workouts to TV appearances to Coachella to Turkey, all while having FUN.)

We talked about this ‘missing gut-health tool’ in-depth, including the what, why, and (the seemingly-elusive) how of creating a truly healthy connection with your gut.

Robyn shared the simple, yet effective, lessons that are the core of this missing tool, such as “Breathe,” “Chew,” “Eat,” “Drink,” “Shop,” and “Shed.”

By the end of this podcast, you’ll have specific tips to improve your mind-body connection and change the relationship you have with your gut…

And hopefully incorporate this missing tool along with everything else you’re already doing to heal your gut. [click to continue…]

Dana-L-SCD-Success-Story-Image

Camping, hiking, and backpacking adventures…

Those words used to send fear ripping through my chest when I was sick with Celiac disease and just starting SCD.

I never thought I would be able to do things like that on a diet like SCD or GAPS. I felt trapped, like I couldn’t eat anything unless it was cooked right here in my own kitchen.

I thought traveling and camping adventures were something that I’d never do again – that it was just part of being someone healing on the SCD diet.

It only took me a few more years to realize it was ENTIRELY possible, and the only thing standing in the way was ME.

All I needed was a plan and the right checklist of travel foods and I could do anything I wanted… go anywhere I wanted.

And that’s exactly what we have for you today… a step-by-step guide for camping and backpacking on SCD or GAPS.

But this isn’t just the usual guide…

It was put together by one of our community members, Dana, who absolutely blew us away with the detailed guide she put together from her trip into the Canadian wilderness.

Dana went ABOVE and BEYOND to share her best tips for camping and backpacking on SCD/GAPS after successfully hiking and backpacking miles each day (without getting sick or losing more weight).

This was no ordinary road trip. Dana was going deep in the backcountry in Canada, hundreds of miles away from any Whole Foods grocery stores.

NOW, you might not be planning a backpacking trip into Canada, but if Dana can survive in the backcountry with this plan, then I know you can use it when you fly for a few hours to spend time with your in-laws or go camping for a night in the woods nearby. It is my hope that at least one of Dana’s ideas will be useful in your life, and I’ve included a table of contents for quick searching and future reference here… [click to continue…]

Celiac-Disease-Diet-Isnt-Working

I was ready to give up hope…

Years of diarrhea…

Chronic Fatigue…

Depression…

Anxiety…

Acne…

I was slowly dying…

And things just kept getting worse.

The doctors didn’t know what was wrong with me.

Until one appointment, when I finally convinced my Gastroenterologist to order an endoscopy. A few weeks after the procedure, I got a pamphlet in the mail from her called, “Living Gluten-Free,” with a hand-written note that said:

Jordan, Tests showed you have Celiac disease. Follow a Gluten-Free Diet and you’ll be just fine.”

Ummm, what? What’s Celiac disease and what’s gluten?!? How could gluten be causing all these problems in my life? I’ll really be just fine if I change my diet?

I can’t help but wonder how many people around the world get the same prescription I did.

Some call it Gluten Free…

But I have a different nickname for it: The Celiac Disease Diet. Why? Because of a very important reason – a reason that almost killed me.

The Celiac Disease Diet Isn’t Working (and Is Making Celiacs Sicker)

It’s widely accepted that the first step in treating Celiac disease is removing gluten from the diet with 100% strictness. In fact, this is the treatment plan copied right from the National Library of Medicine and typical of most doctor-patient conversations after a diagnosis: [1]

Celiac disease cannot be cured. However, your symptoms will go away and the villi in the lining of the intestines will heal if you follow a lifelong gluten-free diet. Do not eat foods, beverages, and medications that contain wheat, barley, rye, and possibly oats.

You must read food and medication labels carefully to look for hidden sources of these grains and ingredients related to them. Because wheat and barley grains are common in the American diet, sticking with this diet is challenging. With education and planning, you will heal.

While removing gluten exposure is critical to the treatment of the disease… it isn’t THE only treatment. It’s just part of it. The danger lies in the promise that people with Celiac disease, who follow a strict gluten-free diet for life, will fully heal.

When I followed a strict Gluten-Free diet for 2 years, believing I would be “just fine” and STILL had diarrhea 5-10 times a day, I came face-to-face with insanity.

In fact, things got a little scary when I was absolutely convinced I was getting “gluten contamination” from everything (like the dishwasher, cooking pans, silverware, water, air, kissing, breathing, whatever). It reached the lowest point when I thought I couldn’t eat anywhere but my own kitchen without getting “glutened.” But the reality is: it wasn’t gluten contamination at all.

The Celiac Disease Diet wasn’t working for me…

It turns out I wasn’t alone.

The latest Celiac disease research is painting a scary picture…

Do you feel confused because there is just so much conflicting hormone information out there?

Are you struggling with sugar cravings, low energy, and feeling that you’re rushing all the time?

If so, our friend Sara is about to change your life…

You may have already heard of our good friend, Harvard-educated doc, and bestselling author Dr. Sara Gottfried MD.

Dr. Sara is an expert who understands that hormonal imbalances are behind your belly fat and low energy.

We used to think, like Dr. Sara did when she started medical school more than two decades ago, that fatigue and low energy was something in your “head.”

Turns out the truth is hormonal: your hormones dictate what your body does with food. [click to continue…]

Imagine it’s the year 2050… and through a series of events, you’ve been put in charge of one of the most sophisticated defense systems in the universe…

A force like something we’ve never seen before – capable of immense offensive firepower, intricate defense networks, and even a self-destruction mode.  

Some are calling it the most dangerous and powerful technology of its kind.

Many are scared of its ability to develop weapons for enemies that don’t even exist yet… adapting on the fly to discover its weak spot and destroy it, unleashing whatever firepower it takes.

This technology could be used for good and protect humans from unimaginable threats, insuring we survive for lifetimes…

Or it could fall into the wrong hands and be used for evil…

And no one will be able to stop it.

It’s up to you, what happens next. With that kind of power at your fingertips, what will you do?

Will you use this tool for the good of the human race?

Or will you make different choices… unleashing the power of this weapon for evil, and destroy everything in its path?

You’re in Charge of the Most Powerful Weapon in the Universe

This story isn’t fiction.  

In fact, it’s way more real than you might know. The truth is you’re already in control of one of the most sophisticated weapons known to man.

It’s an adaptive technology unlike anything we’ve ever seen before.

Its powerful ability to protect and kill is something we still don’t fully understand.

And the most chilling thing of all… it’s active inside your body right now.

This futuristic weapon is your immune system… and you’re already in control of it. During this article, I’m going to show you how this weapon works, so you can decide how to use it going forward. [click to continue…]
