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.

The five-second rule is a lie.
It turns out, if you drop something on the floor, no matter how fast you pick it up, it’s still dirty. This was confirmed by a study recently conducted by two Rutgers University professors called “Is the five-second rule real?”
If you’re like me, I bet you occasionally employ the five-second rule. After all, my house is clean! But after reading this study – and hearing the lead scientist admit he wouldn’t eat food dropped on his own kitchen floor – I had to reconsider how clean my house truly was.
Yes, I clean regularly. But like most people – regularly could probably stand to happen a bit more often. And because of concerns for my health and the health of our planet, I stopped using chemical cleaning products years ago. Without resorting to harsh chemical cleaners or constant vigilance, I wondered – What would I have to do to make my house clean enough to literally eat off the floor? [click to continue…]
When you eat, you have many choices. Do you opt for flavor? Do you opt for convenience? Or do you take a ‘food as medicine’ approach?
The third choice is definitely the wisest. However, sometimes it can be difficult to find flavorful and convenient recipes that also help you heal… especially when many of us are following dietary guidelines, like the Leaky Gut diet, or the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD).
What Foods Fit Within a Leaky Gut Diet?
There are many Leaky Gut Diet-friendly foods that can satisfy your cravings, without leaving you feeling deprived. You can dine on vegetables, fruits, coconut products, grass-fed meats, seafood, poultry, bone broth, healthy fats, herbs, and many more choices.
While a wide variety of foods are permitted, there are some limitations on a Leaky Gut diet. You’ll want to avoid nuts, seeds, beans/legumes, grains, dried fruits, dairy, processed foods, alcohol, chocolate, eggs, and nightshades, at least until you know how you react to them. Keep in mind this is not an all-encompassing list. To learn more about what to eat and not eat on a Leaky Gut diet, check out this free webinar on Solving Leaky Gut. [click to continue…]
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…]
Have you ever heard of the term “symptom chasing”??
It refers to the act of trying to resolve several health issues independently, believing one symptom is unrelated to the other. It’s a very frustrating place to be, but fortunately more and more people are becoming aware and realize this behavior isn’t working.
Looking back, I was doing this very thing as I tried to find separate solutions to my grueling fatigue, severe diarrhea, and unwelcomed weight loss. But as soon as I focused on taking control of my digestive issues, everything started to fall into place and I felt alive again.
Truth is, the research shows our gut plays a role in nearly every condition known to man and we must start there if we want to achieve better health.
And this is exactly how my friend Debbie regained her health, despite suffering from over 15 symptoms every single day.
Debbie’s story is a perfect example of what can happen when we turn our attention to gut health. Not only did she lose the weight she so desperately tried to lose, but she recovered from eczema, endometriosis, thyroid issues, pancreatitis, GERD, and depression to name a few.
Debbie is an inspiration to me and I hope that if you’re sick and tired of chasing symptoms, her story inspires you to take a different approach. [click to continue…]
