IBS, Autoimmune, Anxiety, Hormones

Over the last few decades, I’ve been managing health issues such as IBS, autoimmune flare ups, anxiety and hormonal imbalances through diet and exercise. Recently though, I decided I wanted to do more than just manage my symptoms, I wanted to heal them completely.

I’ve been following Derek on social media for almost a decade and always enjoyed learning from the videos he posts and articles he wrote throughout the years. There is a wealth of information on his website and although you can learn so much through his articles, his videos and what he shares on social media, there is nothing quite like learning from him directly. I booked a free consult and during that call I felt confident that Derek would be able to guide me towards my best healthy self.

I decided to make an investment in myself and joined Derek’s Thrive Justice program. After a health questionnaire and our first coaching call, Derek designed a supplement regime to include with the Thrive Academy protocols, that was specifically targeted to my individual health challenges. During our coaching calls, Derek was relatable, personable, knowledgeable, and made me feel comfortable sharing about my health concerns. I found the recipes in the program easy to follow and quite tasty. I especially love the Superhero smoothie!

Within a couple of weeks of following the program, I saw positive changes to my digestion, overall mood, and my sense of well-being. I slept deeply and felt more rested upon waking. After completing the first month of the program, I noticed that my clothes fit more loosely, and that I had lost 9 pounds. I experienced more clarity of mind and felt a confidence in myself and in my health for the first time in a long while. By the end of the two-month program, I was down a total of 16 pounds and I no longer experienced any IBS issues. Anxieties that plagued me for years, are now calmed and my hormones have come into balance. I feel assured that by continuing to work with the Thrive protocols and tools Derek gave me, that my autoimmune issues will continue to heal well and will no longer be of concern.

Weight, Thyroid, Hormones

I joined the THRIVE Health Program because my normal approach to my health which had worked so well for me for years stopped being as effective as I wanted it to be. Since I started THRIVE my weight is down 10lbs with no fluctuations up and down like I used to, I have energy and brain capacity for a massive increased in work demand (I own two businesses), I am happiest I’ve been in over a year, I knew confidently which supplements to reach for to give that extra support I needed when I was planning my wedding and things got stressful, I have created some amazing healthy habits that have stayed permanent, I have no cravings for sugar (a miracle!), I eliminated a large skin tag I have had for the last 2 years, my skin is glowing and has never stopped, and my hormones and thyroid have balanced out. I am so glad I made the investment! Derek is a wealth of information and maybe the best source of supplement recommendations I’ve ever come across. His expertise is invaluable! Testimonial Disclosure

Emotional/Behavioural Issues

I came to Derek for help with my nearly 7 year old daughter and her emotional/behavioural issues. As a holistic primary health care provider, I am already very keen to seeking the CAUSE of an issue and not treating or managing issues. We already eat a very healthy diet and very little to no refined, boxed or canned foods. However, her predictable and uncontrollable outbursts since age 1 1/2, needed outside help and I wanted to ensure diet was NOT involved before seeking other avenues. After a very thorough evaluation and discussion, Derek made 2 simple suggestions and within our first week the shift in her behaviour was DRAMATIC!! During the 3 weeks she was taking the supplements, not ONE outburst or over-reaction. In fact she was apologetic, happily cooperative and willing beyond my dreams! Truly amazing and heartwarming to see such beautiful change for a sweet girl. Thank you Derek! Testimonial Disclosure

Digestive Issues, Headaches, Mood Swings, Brain Fog

My days started with a tired body, with headaches kicking in shortly, pains in my stomach, bloating, mood swings, anxiety, no desire to do anything but lay my head down and rest. Needless to name all the various tests that were done in order to determine the cause of my “illness”, however, other than being told to rest and a course of antibiotics, nothing else was done by my physicians in order to help me. Then I started having even more and worse symptoms (abnormal bowel movements, fatigue, severe headaches, digestive issues, mood swings), and I decided that I am going to take the matter in my own hands and work on my health instead of going from one doctor to another. After 8 weeks in the THRIVE Health Program I have no more abnormal bowel movements, a lot less mood swings, less headaches, no digestive issues, no more cravings for starchy or sugary foods, more clarity and lots of hope!!! On top of this, I have also lost 16 pounds and am now at my ideal weight. Thank you, Derek! Testimonial disclosure

Fatigue, Adrenal, Hormonal, Sleep, Mood, and Weight Issues 

I had suffered with chronic fatigue, adrenal issues, hormonal issues, insomnia, anxiety, weight gain, low vitamin D, low Iron and ferritin stores, etc etc. After being on the THRIVE Health Program for 8 weeks I turned my life around dramatically. I lost 10 kilos, I sleep like a baby, my hormones are back in balance and my energy levels are optimal, my iron levels and vitamin D levels both sky rocketed to optimal levels. I have such high regard for Derek his knowledge and the program, I have spent thousands of dollars seen over 20 specialist and nobody was capable of giving me the knowledge and guidance that Derek’s program offers. The information is of the best quality, and so easy to follow. If you are suffering in anyway in regards to your health and wellness, I cannot recommend this program enough! Testimonial disclosure

IBS, Hormonal, Weight Issues

I was diagnosed with IBS at a younger age and always had issues with digestion but I ate “healthy” (or so I thought). The first thing I noticed when I started the THRIVE Health Program was the weight started to fall off, and one day I noticed my energy was coming back. I wasn’t as tired and I wasn’t having my mid day crashes at work anymore. By the end of the first month, I have my first round of PMS, which is usually a battle but not that month or anything since then! I was able to get through an entire menstrual cycle without the use of any pain meds, and it had some regularity to it, which was completely abnormal for me. My bloating has gone away and my IBS symptoms have begun to slowly improve. I sleep better at night and have lost about 12 lbs, and what I really love is that my kids are following some of the same protocol! Thanks Derek for all that you have done for me! Testimonial disclosure

Crohn’s (Autoimmune), Adrenal, Candida, Thyroid, and Hormonal Issues

I have been living with and trying to manage symptoms from Crohn’s Disease for nearly three decades now and I am only 37 years old. Over the last 5-10 years issues with adrenal fatigue, candida, thyroid and hormonal imbalances, low energy and many more symptoms have also come into play. I had been on various immunosuppressants drugs, as well as various steroids for the better part of my life. I had tried several different roads to health such as naturopaths, “healthy eating” etc. I had mild successes, however my normal day to day still involved a lot of pain, discomfort, and highs and lows. I was skeptical at first that Derek would be able provide me with any information that was different than what I had heard from my naturopath. I was wrong. The THRIVE Health Program, changed my life. Within weeks I noticed changes in the way I was feeling and how my body was reacting. My new “normal” is light years better than how I felt before. I am off all medications at this point and am confident that my body will continue to only improve. Thanks Derek! Testimonial disclosure

IBS, Stomach, Autoimmune, Hormonal, Skin, and Hair Issues

In my 20’s, I was diagnosed with IBS. I experienced frequent bouts of rectal bleeding, hemorrhoids, stomach ulcers, chronic sinus infections, allergies, back and neck pain etc. I found some relief through various natural healing modalites such as herbs, nutrition, acupuncture, massage, rolfing, reiki, Ayurvedic medicine, colonics, etc. During these 10 years, I spent at minimum $2-4K/year managing these issues. Years later, I was diagnosed with an autoimmune condition, which spurred engagement in even more progressive (& expensive) therapies. Thus began a 7-year journey to recover from this autoimmune condition and the deterioration of many of my major bodily systems. I lost over 10% of my body weight. I struggled with chronic fatigue, light-headedness, weakness, muscle cramping, extreme numbing of limbs, spells of difficulty in walking or standing, arthritic pain in most joints, digestive issues & rectal bleeding (most of my life), major hormonal imbalances, excessive hair loss, skin elasticity loss, dry chaffed skin, extreme toxicity of multiple heavy metals, and headaches for first time in my life. In the short 2 months of the THRIVE Health Program, my breakthroughs far exceeded anything I had experienced in the 7 years prior. I would say over half of my standing issues have resolved. I went from one loose bowel movement/day to 2-4 formed stools per day. I no longer require 9-11 hours of sleep but feel great on 7-8, and even 5 on occasion. My energy levels are strong and steady. And, my hair that had started to knot and dread due to intense dryness in less than a day from a fresh wash, is again shiny, manageable after a week from a fresh wash. My over-all skin, which has been plagued by lost elasticity and dryness has improved the month following the program. My facial skin is also more vibrant, slightly rosy cheeks are developing, and color patches are evening out. Derek’s THRIVE program is quite incredible, and it works! Testimonial disclosure
