We’re looking for a long-term partnership with a Graphic Designer to help us with our Baby, a new, more inclusive website for any and all digestive related issues. Design and branding are going to be the critical thread that holds it all together.

This is a paid position you can do from home and would probably start out as a 10-or-so hour per week role, with room for growth as this project grows.

We’re Looking For Someone Who:

  1. Knows our community, is familiar with our work, and wants to help further it.
  2. Is highly creative, artistic, and serious about branding and design. You probably have done graphic design for years and you like to help turn a big vision into something that customers rave about.
  3. “Gets” that design isn’t all about beauty, but also about function and consumption. Is always thinking about how design enhances learning and enjoyment of products.
  4. Enjoys working alone most of the time. The work you’ll be doing is typically alone. If you’re the type of person who likes to chit-chat with people and interact with friends a lot, this probably isn’t right for you.
  5. Has the flexibility to work at least 1-2 hours a day – but can also put in longer days for big project deadlines.
  6. Has experience creatively expressing the ‘feel’ of a larger brand through all mediums (website, logos, PDF, images, products, etc.).
  7. Is extremely dependable… not the “This usually doesn’t happen, but it happened again” type.
  8. Doesn’t take things personally, have feelings hurt easily or get offended by design feedback. Stays objective and likes to go with the flow of the design revision process as things evolve. Such is the life during revisions…
  9. Is the type of person who can take creative control and drive the project forward with their own ideas, not just following directions.

“How many of you started eating a real food diet, whether it’s Paleo, Weston A. Price, SCD, or GAPS, because of digestive problems?”

About 75% of the people in the room raised their hand. I was speaking at a Weston A. Price Foundation meeting and it shocked me to see so many hands in the air.

“WOW, ok. Please keep your hand up if you STILL have digestive problems, even though you’re eating a real food diet.”

Only a few hands went down… again, shocked!

So, if you’re eating Paleo, SCD, GAPS, or WAPF and still have stomach problems… you’re not alone. We get emails every single day from people struggling just like those at my talk. Maybe it’s annoying gas and bloating after meals, or bouts of agonizing constipation. Worse yet, maybe it’s gut-wrenching diarrhea that won’t stop. Any way you cut it, it’s frustrating to eat all the “right” foods and still deal with stomach problems.

What gives? How can you eat a nutrient dense, non-toxic, real-food diet and still feel bad?

Why Can’t One of These Diets Just Fix Everything?

We started SCD Lifestyle almost six years ago, we’ve helped 110,000+ people since then, and what I consistently found is that people would pick a diet (let’s say Paleo or SCD or Weston A. Price or GAPS), they would change their diet, commit to this change, and it wouldn’t work.

So they had put all their hope into changing their diet, they did everything they could to change their diet and then… it didn’t work. Their hope would be stolen from them because they tried it and it didn’t work.

What we found over the years is that really it’s about finding a custom diet that works for you. It’s about putting on your engineering hat, whatever that looks like for you.

Phil-Agostino-Colitis-pic

A couple weeks ago, we got a message from Phil on Twitter:

Phil Agostino @scdlifestyle My last 25mg of azathioprine. Those suffering stay strong #colitis #IBD #drugfree #health #diet #SCD pic.twitter.com/NEdy4djalP

We couldn’t wait to hear more from him. (Here’s the rest of our conversation if you’d like to read.)

With hopes of inspiring others in similar situations, Phil is using social media to share his story with the world. For some, all it takes is seeing another real person who’s “been there and done that” to shift their lives entirely. See, there’s power in numbers and there’s no coincidence that more and more people are getting healthy again through diet, supplement, lifestyle and mindset changes like those we talk about.

And luckily, there are amazing people like Phil who feel compelled to spread the word to help others. We couldn’t be more grateful that we’re a part of the change we want to see in the world.

Womens-Gluten-Free-Summit

If you’re someone who’s not getting better on a gluten-free diet, or you’ve tried going gluten-free in the past… you’re not alone!

In fact, gluten-free diets make me so ANGRY! (Watch this video to see me get fired up.)

That’s why I was excited to be a part of the Women’s Gluten-Free Health Summit alongside our friend Jennifer Fugo.

She invited 23 of the most well-respected experts in the fields of gluten sensitivity, autoimmunity, mental health, cooking and motivation to get answers to your burning questions. No topic is off limits…

What I like about her is she demanded the speakers forget the “doctor speak” and science jargon that might make your head spin. All of the conversations are framed around making sure anyone understands them as well as the major ramifications of living gluten-free that you might not hear about very often.

You can click here to register and watch my full talk for free, but because I’m so passionate about this topic I wanted to share some of the highlights from the content I shared with Jennifer.

These are some of the most important points I wish I would have known years ago when I was told a “Gluten-Free Diet is all I needed to eat to get healthy.”

So-youre-passionate-about-nutrition

When I opened the link, I literally spit coffee all over my keyboard.

Almost 1,000 people had applied for our Virtual Office Manager position. Are you serious!?

It took weeks to get through all those applications!

The most common response?

“I found you guys when I was sick and now I’m getting healthy.  I’m SOOO passionate about nutrition, I want to help people with their health and I would love to do that as part of your company.”

But what really tugged at my heart strings was the amount of people that said they were still sick. In fact, many already KNEW the reason WHY they were still sick.

This hidden reason didn’t surprise me… I’ve seen it over and over through the years. But what did surprise me is how many people were finally ready to do something about it…

The #1 Problem Making People Sick

You’ve probably heard us talk about “getting at the root cause” of your chronic illness – things like Adrenal Fatigue, Gut Infections, and Liver Toxicity, just to name a few.

But after working with people 1-on-1 for years, I can tell you that those are some of the easiest root causes to fix. Why? Because you can follow a custom diet and supplement protocols to correct them…

But there was a hidden root cause that seemed impossible to fix.

It was the root cause I couldn’t “Out Smart” in most people. Meaning, no matter what we did with their diet, supplements, and lifestyle changes… they were still sick.

And worse yet, it was the root cause I couldn’t do anything about. I literally couldn’t help them with it.

The #1 root cause making people sick is THEIR JOB.
