Weight Loss

I’ve just completed 8 weeks of the Thrive Academy and lost over 37 lbs, with food alone (no formal exercise)!

I’m a down to earth sort of guy so I’ll tell you straight, this isn’t like the other diets and this ain’t no fad either, this feels right straight away. Your body starts adjusting straight away, the weight straight away, the inflammation straight away, your mental strength straight away. Your mood and energy shift straight away.

I felt so comfortable working with Derek and he helped me understand what my cravings meant in the initial part of the diet and I was able to overcome the battle. I went from fast food at least twice a day, to a clean organic diet overnight, he knew exactly what was happening, what I was going through and how to navigate the rough sea and to come out on the other side feeling amazing.

Having Derek help me each step of the way with any symptoms that would come up and understand what they mean and how to overcome them was probably the best part of this whole program because if tried for years doing it on my own with diets and just gave up when symptoms got worse.

I started this diet as well at a really difficult time where my partner had a severe injury so I had to care for her and the kids as well as work whilst trying to change my whole diet. So to be able to go through a massive change in diet and navigate myself at home speaks volumes of this program. As my body grew stronger as the days went on so did my mental resilience, it’s amazing how much food has an impact on your mental strength as well.

I would say to anyone who has struggled with diets, struggled with physical symptoms, struggled with food addiction, to give this a go 100%!

Acid Reflux, Stomach Pain, IBS, Rashes

When I first came to Derek for help, I’d have to say I was very frustrated.  I thought I lived a healthy lifestyle and ate well compared to my friends, and even my family. Unfortunately, I was dealing with an infection in my gut that created many different symptoms, including indigestion, hot rashes, excessive belching, flatulence, upset stomach, bloating, and heartburn.

Visits to the hospital and the doctor’s office yielded more questions than answers. When physicians can’t explain what’s going on in your gut, they just diagnose you with irritable bowel syndrome or IBS, and here are some heavy duty acid reducing pills you can take for the rest your life.

I reached out to Derek thinking at the very least I can get myself a little more educated on the inner workings of my gut. There is so much information, and misinformation (unfortunately) on the Internet, it’s almost impossible for someone to navigate what could be going on and what you need to do to address issues with your gut. Well, unless you want to spend the next three years on the internet reading medical journals, some of which are like trying to interpret hieroglyphics.

That’s where Derek was extremely helpful, helping to decode what might be going on, what I might be eating that was contributing to additional issues, and getting me a game plan to reset my health. I was 100% committed to the plan.

After three months, I can tell you my symptoms have been reduced by about 90%, and I now feel as close to normal as I was before I started having digestive issues. Derek doesn’t tell you what you want to hear, he tells you things you need to hear, and if you’re willing to learn and stick to his plan, it will change your lifestyle for good.  Once you know what it feels like to be in great health, you’ll be so appreciative of the THRIVE Academy and will love your new lifestyle. I know my cravings for crap and junk food have been reduced to a level I never thought possible!  

A great program for those who truly want to recover from chronic health issues, and THRIVE!

Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lungs, Digestion

At 74, I started to develop strange symptoms like diarrhea and extreme joint pain. After a few months I began to have severe coughing and developed some sort of skin lump on my forehead. I went to the hopsital a few times, doctors prescribed antibiotics, and every time I told them that I was not getting better, they gave me stronger ones which eventually made me so weak I needed oxygen to move around the house.

After 3 months of struggling with extreme cough, non-stop runny nose, lack of appetite, and digestive issues, I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis with rare impact on my lung. I started strong anti-inflammatory drugs and immunosuppressants.

Fortunately, my daughter was referred by a friend to check out Derek Henry and his THRIVE program. Within a couple months, my appetite, joint pain, lung capacity, and lump on my forehead improved significantly. My struggle with my sinuses and digestion are also improving. This program has totally changed my perspective and knowledge about food and nutrition. Thanks Derek! Testimonials Disclosure

Pancreas, Digestive System, Liver, Nausea

I had many health issues when I met Derek, the worst being my pancreas, liver, and digestion. I had difficulty digesting food, constant nausea, painful bloating, chronic constipation, and inflammation.

In the beginning of the THRIVE program, lots of cleansing was happening from decades of built up toxicity from prescriptions. After 3 weeks on the specialized nutritional and supplementation plan, I started to really notice my health was improving. My constant nausea went away, my sleep was much better (I got rid of my sleep tablets), and my weird digestive pains and movements started to disappear. Derek was very helpful and his coaching was an important part of me making it through this process, without having to resort to more doctors or prescriptions.

If you are considering whether to take the THRIVE plunge, I advise that you go for it. You will never find anyone who cares and supports you on an individual basis, giving you as much time as you need, as Derek will. Thank you! Testimonials Disclosure

Colitis

After years of struggling with debilitating GI issues, I was finally diagnosed with collagenous colitis 2 years ago.  Giving my symptoms a name did not improve my life, nor did the prescription steroids and medications help the diarrhea, GI pain and constant exhaustion.  I travel a lot for my job and I was considering an early retirement because I was unable to function.

Thankfully, my daughter introduced me to Derek and his THRIVE program.  With his extensive and practical knowledge, he systematically dealt with each issue I was experiencing through education, diet, detoxification and supplementation.  Today I am much healthier and my life is not dictated by my illness.  I now have normal bowel movements, very little GI pain, increased energy, much clearer skin, increased ability to focus (constant brain fog is gone), decreased urgency to urinate (bladder infection gone), and no headaches!

Derek’s guidance and THRIVE plan was a game changer for me and will be knowledge I will have for the rest of my life.  If poor health is ruining your life, do not suffer another day!  Derek can help you. Testimonials Disclosure

Digestive Issues

I recently completed Derek’s Thrive Lifestyle Academy and had a great experience! I initially contacted Derek to help me with ongoing gut issues I’ve had for several years. He helped me not only with this but much more. We reviewed my diet and overall health and wellness objectives. Following his advice, I was able to fine tune my regimen, incorporate key nutrients and supplements that I had been missing, and eliminate certain foods I never realized were problematic. Since beginning this program, my overall gut health and vibrancy have increased dramatically. After working on my nutrition, Derek also helped me with my exercise routine and gave advice on my life and business goals. I appreciated Derek’s guidance and sincere efforts to help me on my journey of health and wellness. He had my best interests in mind and went above and beyond while working with me. I know I’ll be able to go to Derek for guidance for a long time to come! Testimonials Disclosure

Asthma, Allergies, and Eczema

I came to Derek looking for an answer for my daughter, Kylie’s, health. As a toddler, Kylie was diagnosed with asthma, allergies, and eczema.

She had a lot of difficulties around eating certain foods, being around animals, and having breathing attacks. It only got worse as she aged. Around age 12, we would get phone calls from her school asking us to come get her because her breathing wasn’t good enough to be in school. At times, they even called 911 to have EMS come out to help her with her airflow. We spent countless nights up awake using the nebulizer because she couldn’t breathe.

Her dad and I eventually switched her to a naturopathic pediatrician and from there did everything we could think of to help her. She saw many holistic specialists and removed most everything from her diet. We were doing blood tests, allergy scratches, sublingual drops, and steroid inhalers.

Eventually, we talked about Derek’s THRIVE program and she decided to go all in. She dedicated herself to being diligent with the protocols and to have an open mind and heart to Derek’s teachings.

Within a couple of weeks, she noticed huge improvements. Walking up the stairs at school was no longer an issue, she noticed in choir that her voice was stronger and even an octave higher, and she began to sleep better at night. I’ve even had her run with me recently with no issues at all with her breathing!

We’ve started adding foods back into her diet (that she previously tested an allergy for) with no issues at all. This is just the beginning of the benefits she’s seen. I’ve also noticed significant changes in her general sense of well-being and happiness!

I couldn’t be more grateful to Derek for what he has supported us through and to Kylie for her dedication to living her life on her terms. I’m so happy to see her THRIVING!” Testimonials Disclosure

Digestive Issues

I have had digestive issues for years. I was suffering extreme bloating, constipation, fatigue, weight gain, and brain fog to name a few issues. I thought I was on track to fixing it myself but I was not getting results. In desperation I knew it was time to get an expert! Derek’s knowledge in pinpointing my health needs based on my symptoms blew me away. Three weeks into the THRIVE program I began to see change. I was losing weight and had more energy. As I progressed the brain fog was only random and my gut issues began to improve. By the end of the program my body had changed. I looked healthier, felt like a new person, and even my skin was glowing. The wealth of knowledge I’ve learned in 8 weeks from Derek is priceless to my ongoing health. It is not hard to fix our health issues IF you have the right coach who TRULY can deliver results. I am feeling the best I have in 5 long years. Thank you Derek! Testimonials Disclosure
