Meet The Founders: Jordan and Steve

In early 2009, two chronically sick engineers made a life changing decision…

Fueled by anger, anxiety, and pain, we decided we wouldn’t quit until we fixed our digestive health.  We also felt a burning passion that others like us should have a place to learn about what works.

Little did we know, we’d end up spending $100,000’s of dollars each, as we searched for answers. We started with the specific carbohydrate diet, and supplements… eventually studying Functional Medicine and becoming Kalish Trained Practitioners.

We’d read research papers into the wee hours of the morning, tested every weird healing substance out there, did spiritual work, deep emotional work… and more.

And that’s not including all the underground biohacking devices, procedures, shamatic meetings, 100’s of supplements, snake oil and 100’s of hours of therapy.

This is our story, our unique gift to you.

Our greatest pains always become our greatest strengths.

Our journey has spanned: gastroenterologists, neurologists, acupuncturists, nutritionists chiropractors, psychiatrists, psychologists, shamans, priests, monks, sexological bodywork, astrologists, olympic athletes, herbalists, chinese medicine, and even ordinary people who seem to have it figured out.  Almost everything you can think of…

After 6 years of declining health, western medicine told Jordan Reasoner his body was ravished by Celiac Disease. He was severely malnourished, could hardly get out of bed, and suffered from chronic diarrhea over 10 times a day.  At the lowest point, he knew he wouldn’t live much longer like that (widowing his wife and kids). Read about his rise back to power here. Now he is a completely new man, training with retired special forces, climbing mountains in the backcountry of Montana, and being an amazing Father to his kids.

At age 13, Steven Wright ordered his first supplements and started his first diet, but by 23 he was crying daily in bloating pain.  The panic attacks, depression, and constipation was threatening his “successful” life as a consultant. Read about his integration into a visionary leader, world traveler, and finding peace by clicking here.

They met in Flint, Michigan in 2003 at Kettering University as freshmen studying engineering… but it would be another 6 years before the birth of SCDlifestyle.com, which has now become The Healthy Gut Company.

Evolving Pain, Integrating It, and Speaking Truth

When people like us have a truth that we believe in, it’s hard for us to keep our mouths shut.  We are natural leaders in areas we care about. And we don’t want others to have to suffer like we have.

The Healthy Gut Company Believes…

1) Health is a Choice

You don’t have to live with constant pain.

Here’s what we know: pain is part of life.  But it doesn’t have to be constant, uncontrolled, or cause suffering.  Health of the body, mind, spirit, and relationships are all choices you have control over.  And you deserve a map to get out of suffering and into control, power, joy and peace.

If you have digestive pain, we are dedicated to showing you the fastest, most reliable, and most complete path out of it. But you have to be ready.  You have to choose health, so we can get to work.

2) Everything is Connected

Your body, mind, and consciousness are all systems of systems.

Studying mother nature, the ripple effect, systems theory, quantum mathematics, and engineering… all suggest what the medical field seems to forget every 100 years.

The body is a system… made up of systems… including the mind, being, and the relationships we have.  Everything ripples across the layers and changes things.

This is why it all matters…

What you eat matters, what you think matters, what you believe matters, what happens to you matters, what grows in you matters, what happened to your grandmother matters… and on and on.

Epigenetics, Microbiome Studies, Autonomic Nervous System Research, and the Default Mode Network in the Brain are proving once again that you can heal, integrate, and have the life you want… but only if you embrace the interconnectedness of you, others, and life.

We’ll do our best to explain how things connect and give you options that respect the impacts they will have on your other systems.

3) Use Results-Oriented Solutions That Have Been Tested

You deserve the fastest, most complete health solutions that will actually work.

Let’s be honest, we all care about results. Unless you want to stay spinning in self-pity and victim mode, sooner or later, what you care most about is results.

Are you feeling less pain, more pleasure, more power, more joy, more control, more peace, more love, less suffering, less anger, less anxiety, less depression, more acceptance and more fulfilled?

We are dedicated to finding, creating, and offering solutions that are tested and work towards fixing the issues that you don’t want.

We call it Results-Oriented Health Solutions.

It comes from the engineering world we grew up in… and frankly, the healthy world needs more of it.

Over the Last 10 Years, These 3 Beliefs Have Changed Lives

If you’re still reading this, you’re not alone…

Since 2009, we’ve had the pleasure of serving millions of readers in over 140 countries.

All struggling with chronic illness and stomach problems just like you.

What did they all have in common?

They believed they could get healthy and took actions to get better.

We’ve meticulously collected over 70 case studies from people in our community that have completely changed their lives…

Like these inspiring stories:

This Is WHY We Do This…

We desire to help humans integrate and inspire their unique impacts in the world.

We believe that YOU have unique impacts that would make your family, community, and the world a nicer place to live.

We believe that when you’re in your power, a natural leadership will emerge.

And it’s really difficult to do that when you’re sick.

But when you’re healthy… everything changes.

You’ll have a harder time standing by and not making an impact.  You’ll tolerate less bullshit, less complacency, less violence, and less divisiveness.

And since you’ll have much more energy, health, resilience, and be able to hold more perspectives….  everywhere you go, you’ll provoke others to be more integrated versions of themselves.

And day-by-day, as we all do our work to integrate, as we learn to see-both sides, to use our power, respect nature, to enjoy more, and worry less.

We get more excited for our grandkids.

We’re just plain better humans… and the world becomes a better place.

It’s that simple.

If You’ve Experienced Gut Pain this Week…

If you’ve had heartburn this week… or constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating, or any other chronic health issue, you know it’s not the first time.

And for your sake, I hope it wasn’t shameful, or too painful to be around others or trapped you in the bathroom.

Because we’ve been there.

It’s a very painful, lonely, and dark place to visit (again).

If you’re ready to take back control…

If you don’t want this to be happening a month from now…

Or a year from now…

Or 10 years from now…

Now is the time to begin to grab your power and handle this pain.

As you can see from our stories, it starts with a decision.

And then it’s one-step at a time.

We’ve gone before you and are showing you the way.  But you have to be willing to decide to transform. Even if it’s the 3rd, or the 10th, or the 100th time you’ve decided.

Do it again.  Try again.

Or don’t.

But trust us, the painful experiences, the darkness, the worry only gets worse as time passes.
