Root Causes

The genesis of all of your health has more to do with your gut than any other part of your body.

Bold statement, I know.

No matter what condition or struggle you’re dealing with, you must look at the health of your digestive system because it is the ROOT of EVERYTHING.

Has your provider ever asked you about your diet? Have they ever considered your inputs and how they might affect your output? How can this vital system be so overlooked in conventional medicine approaches? The important piece here is that you are curious and because of that curiosity, you are well on your path to finding your own answers and likely your own solutions.

Every human being on the planet has 99% of the same systems, glands, organs and cells. This means that there are generalizations that can be made. This means that there are statistics and data to back up common treatments to common ailments. This means that standards of care are often applicable and useful to most people.

However, what if your condition, ailment or situation falls in that one percent? What happens if you’ve been offered solutions that don’t resolve your pain points and you are brushed off and still in pain? What if, and it happens often, YOU’RE COMPLETELY IGNORED. It sucks. I’ve watched many of my friends and family be brushed off by their providers and continue to suffer.

I’m here to help you figure out how to remedy the signs and symptoms by figuring out why the signs and symptoms are there in the first place. Looking for the root causes relieves the need to mask symptoms and instead, actually make them go away. There are things we can not control, such as genetics. However there are many things we can control, such as the makeup of the bacteria of the gut (otherwise known as the microbiota) and the compromised integrity or permeability of the gut.

Nutrition should be the very first thing we look at when attempting to address health issues. We now know that nutrition plays a major role in behavioral issues. Additionally, diet affects depression, and autoimmune diseases. In those three categories alone, we cover most of the American population.

Often the path to resolution is simple, but that does not mean it is easy. When I removed nearly everything from my diet, it was a difficult and drastic shift. I had a strong motivation to make changes and I’m glad I did. However, not everyone can do a hard shift. It takes gradual changes to make them sustainable changes.  This is where having a path and a coach, come in handy. Your path to wellness can take as long as you need it to, or it can be a short sprint. The timeline is entirely up to you and your ability to stay focused on your goal.

We can not look at nutrition without also considering the health of your digestive system. Consider that most Americans suffer from one or several of the following and they are all related to your gut health.
  • Heartburn
  • Constipation
  • Gas
  • Diarrhea
  • IBS
  • Crohn’s
  • Colitis
  • Candida
Understanding what is going on in your body takes time and patience. The process of true healing and health begins with a foundation of meeting you where you are currently. There are rules that your individual body is just begging you to follow and the bio-surveys are a great way to find out what those ground rules are. We can uncover what areas or systems are in need of balancing, what foods your body is asking for more of, and what foods your body does not currently get much benefit from.

Nutrition should be your first stop in understanding how to find true balance and health in your own body.
