These days, most people manage chronic health issues by eliminating offending foods, and taking a few supplements. Although this approach can help, it’s a far cry from ACTUALLY reversing disease.

In essence, you’re trying to break a pane of glass by throwing a pebble at it.

I was having a conversation the other day about the key factor that helped me, and has allowed my clients to get the results they get.


Quite simply, you need to do enough of the right things, for a long enough period of time, to truly overcome chronic health concerns.

For me, not knowing what to do exactly (and there is PLENTY of details people miss) meant that it took me 5 years to clear MOST of my issues, despite an intense focus on solving my problems.

Misplaced effort doesn’t create efficient results. Well directed effort WILL.

In fact, what took me 5 years to accomplish, can take someone else 8 weeks in my THRIVE Lifestyle Academy. That’s the beauty of doing enough of the right things (and less of the wrong things), and putting it into action.

You collapse the amount of time it takes to heal, and you save yourself ALL those years of a diminished quality of life.

Do you want to spend YEARS chasing diagnoses and managing symptoms, or would you rather get on with it and spend those years healthy and happy?

I can tell you one thing, if you FOCUS on the problem more than the solution, you’re going to find more problems. I see it all the time.

I put my 13 chronic disease conditions BEHIND me when I was ready to heal, and looked directly forward. And it was then, that answers started to FLOOD into me.

It started with eliminating toxic components in my life, along with therapeutic nutrition. Then incorporating therapies. But it wasn’t until 4 years in that I fully realized the most effective answer…

Mastering my digestion.

Once I knew how to prepare, combine, and eat the right kinds of foods to fix my digestion (as well as potent whole food supplementation) , I quickly realized that healing was in full force.

It was such a RELIEF.

And ALL the other symptoms, that would normally be attributed to other areas of the body and NOT associated with digestion, were being relieved. It was then, I knew, that the cause of ALL my issues stemmed from poor digestion.

Autoimmunity. Hypothyroid. Skin Disease. Liver and gallbladder pain. Kidney infections. To name just a few.

ALL healed through a masterful approach to resolving digestive issues.

So whether you have a diagnosed digestive issue, an autoimmune condition, or anything else really…know the origin is likely stemming from poor digestion.

This is why I tackle this head on in the THRIVE Academy. Once you know how to do this properly, and intertwine other lifestyle hacks into the mix, you’re golden.

Ask my THRIVERS. Their testimonials prove the approach is gold.

Are you going to let another day, week, month, or year go by? If so, that’s your call. Timing will never be perfect. Anytime is the right time, to take care of your health.

Who’s into healing and THRIVING? If you are, contact me at any time. I always enjoy a good conversation about how I can help you in your potential transformation.
