The 4 typical steps someone goes through before they start to heal their digestive and autoimmune issues and really THRIVE…

Step 1: Symptoms arise that make day to day life inconvenient. In order to get an “answer”, a trip to the doc is required. Not long after, a diagnosis is given (or if they fail to find anything, you’re told nothing is wrong and to go home and live with it), along with a new prescription.

Step 2: Not particularly wanting to take prescriptions and deal with the side effects (and knowing they aren’t dealing with the real issue), the independent research begins. This starts by diving deep into the internet, through google searches, FB pages and groups, and the like, where more confusion and detours are encountered. This frustration and lack of answers leads to step 3.

Step 3: The urge to give up is real, and would be easier, if the pain would not ignite every time a “mistake” is made through diet or other lifestyle habits. This forces a meticulous management process of life, which feels like walking through a minefield, wondering when the ball will drop next and create a flare up of symptoms. At this point, many people will consider another health professional, but end up with relatively the same results due to not enough education and too little support.

Step 4: Tired of not seeing results from any of the common routes, the person “surrenders” and looks for someone (consciously or subconsciously) that has proven to heal other people and understand their dilemma because they have successfully worked through it themselves. The is when they find me, and the THRIVE Academy, and begin to learn why they are ill, why they haven’t been able to get results, and the path they need to take to overcome their health condition, naturally.

It’s not until someone surrenders, that they usually find answers. In that process, they become open and grounded, which reveals the very thing that they need and have been hoping for. Trying to find answers to healing while fully engaged in the brain and ego, will typically yield very poor results.

So, now that you know the steps, are you at the end of step 3 yet? Or, are you in step 1 and want to avoid the not-so-merry-go-round of the other steps, and proceed straight to step 4?
