Autoimmune Freedom ShowNourish TV (Videos)

I made a HUGE mistake this week.

I’m a member of a bunch of different FB groups focused on various autoimmune issues like Celiac Disease, a handful of thyroid and Hashimoto’s related groups, one for fibromyalgia, one for lupus, and some other ones.

Generally, I keep my comments to myself and I simply watch the posts to see what the biggest issues are, what advice people are giving, and what experiences they’ve had.

I get incredibly frustrated by the terribly damaging advice people are giving each other. The things they say their doctors and practitioners are telling them are staggeringly harmful. And it’s everything in me sometimes not to jump in and scream – OMG! PEOPLE! Stop it already! This is all wrong!

But (usually) I know better than to say anything.

Because, sadly, most of the people in these groups don’t want the truth. They don’t want to hear or read things that would rattle their identity, which has become “someone who has an autoimmune disease.”

But for a brief moment, I forgot this and thought I could pop in and give some advice on what I thought was a seemly safe question. But I was wrong. So horribly wrong.

I made the mistake of suggesting that the body was designed to heal, and that thyroid medication simply makes matters worse in cases of Hashimoto’s. And I got absolutely jumped on in one of the thyroid support groups.

See, I forgot that… very few people in these “support groups” want anything other than sympathy and camaraderie which does nothing more than solidify their belief that they are stuck and can never get beyond their symptoms, medications, and diagnosis.

And they would be lost without their disease because it’s who they’ve become.

And that breaks my heart.

And it makes me angry.

And it should make you angry too.

Because we’ve all been sold a pile of crap that is 100% untrue.

We’ve been lead to believe that the diagnosis is the end. And it’s the only thing that matters. And that we’re going to be stuck to that diagnosis forever.

Which is 100% incorrect.

It’s wrong. Unequivocally, undeniably, 100% wrong.

And we have to realize that the broken healthcare system BENEFITS greatly if you believe that you are broken and tied to your diagnosis forever.

We are the sickest developed country in the world, we have the most disease, and we spend the most money on healthcare. How is that ok? How does that even make sense???

Our “healthcare” is pharmaceutical driven. And pharmaceuticals do no work WITH the body to help you heal.

In fact, most pharmaceuticals work against the body, and many CAUSE disease. CAUSE IT.

And if you’re ok with that, and don’t think it’s having a direct impact on you, then stop reading, because the rest of this email will be a waste of your time.

But if you get it, but just don’t know where to turn for answers that MAKE SENSE, then keep reading.

Here’s the truth… our bodies were designed to heal. The are amazing and they can heal, when given the right support.

Even when you have been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease.

Even when you’ve been struggling for months or even years to find answers to your symptoms.

Even if your doctor is telling you otherwise.

Here’s how you know the truth:

Ask yourself, “If I get better and I stop the progression of my disease, I reverse my symptoms, and I heal… who will that benefit?”  

Then ask yourself, “If I stay stuck on medications, and have to continually increase my dosage or combat additional symptoms, who will that benefit?” 

The only answer that should matter is the one where YOU benefit.

The answer where you feel better.

The answer where you get your YOU back!

And if that’s the answer you’re looking for then break free of the broken healthcare system, and the nonsense support groups that want you to stay tied to being sick.

Reach beyond that nonsense, step up for yourself and your health, and reach out to us.

We’ll have a quick chat to see if or how we can help you get your health back – without medications and without tons of supplements.

You have three choices on how to connect with us:

  1. PHONE: Make a phone appointment by clicking here http://www.nourish123.com/heal  We’ll chat for about 10 minutes to see if or how we can help.
  1. FB CHAT: Connect with us on a quick chat via FB Messenger https://www.facebook.com/nourish123nutrition/

Deep breath.

And find your way to FREEDOM.

I’m sorry if what I’m about to say is too blunt, but this needs to be clear….

If you are:

  • Taking medication
  • Buying hundreds of dollars of supplements
  • Working with a practitioner who doesn’t specialize in the complexities of autoimmune disease
  • Still trying to figure out what to eat
  • Left hanging by your doctor with no personalized plan to heal
  • Ignoring the impact your emotions have on your physical symptoms
  • Still trying to pull together a strategy by yourself

… then you are going to stay stuck in this terrible cycle of symptoms!

The fatigue…
The pain…
The weight challenges…
The foggy brain…
The anxiety…

THEY AREN’T GOING TO GO AWAY. 

Continuing to do the same things over and over and expecting different results will not only makes you slowly lose your mind, but it will make your body angry.

And when the body is angry, and it thinks you’re not listening, then more symptoms will appear.

Symptoms are how your body communicates with you.  

And the things that make the body the most angry:

  1. Medications – because they work against the natural design of the body and do not allow it to heal.
  1. Too many supplements – the body doesn’t like pills and powders created in a lab. And soooo many of the supplements out there right now, are really man made creations, even if they started out naturally.
  1. Being Ignored – If your body throws a symptom at you, it doesn’t want you to try to squash the symptoms, what it wants is TO BE HEARD.
  1. Unaddressed emotional stressors – If you have symptoms that simply won’t go away, it’s a huge red flag that you have some underlying emotional stressor that hasn’t been addressed the way your body wants. Even if you feel like you’ve “dealt with it” already – your body is indicating otherwise.
  1. Inflammatory foods – If you are eating gluten and/or dairy then your body is inflamed. No question. This isn’t a theory, it’s been proven over and over. And if you have hidden food issues, (and everyone with autoimmune disease has hidden food issues) and you are eating those foods, you will stay in your inflammatory cycle.

Stop living in denial.  

If you want to get better, you HAVE to come to terms with the fact that what you’re doing… is simply not working.

YOU MUST SHIFT.

And the biggest shift…. is in your mindset.  

Continuing to piece meal your strategy from bits you find here and there just isn’t cutting it.

Continuing to see your doctor, when all he wants to do is run more unnecessary labs, give you medication, and sign you up for more supplements – it’s BS. It’s wrong. And it’s not working for you.

Telling yourself, “I can still probably figure this out” even though you’ve been suffering for far too long.

Well… it’s not going to happen.

It’s not that you’re not smart enough. It’s because you don’t have the resources. You don’t have the access to personalized information. And no matter how much you research, all you’re going to be left with is frustration, lost time, wasted expenses, and more symptoms.

And here’s the thing – YOU SHOULDN’T BE LIVING LIKE THIS.

Seriously.

It’s not ok.

At all.

And it needs to stop. Now. Today.

We get it. I’ve been through it. And no one should have to go through it anymore.

If you’re done and want to make the shift, then pop yourself onto our calendar or pop in and start a FB Chat with us to see if or how we can help you.

You deserve answers.

You deserve a strategy for you.

And you deserve to be FREE from your autoimmune disease and the symptoms associated with it.

Shift.

And the first thing you can do, to shift is to connect with us.

You have three choices on how to do that:

  1. PHONE: Make a phone appointment by clicking here http://www.nourish123.com/heal  We’ll chat for about 10 minutes to see if or how we can help.
  1. FB CHAT: Connect with us on a quick chat via FB Messenger https://www.facebook.com/nourish123nutrition/

Make a shift right now.

And find your way to FREEDOM.

“I just don’t understand why, if I’m doing all the ‘right things,’ I am still dealing with symptoms like fatigue, bloating, pain, and anxiety!” 

A woman named Carragh said this last week when we were chatting about her (numerous) attempts to heal from her Fibromyalgia and Hashimoto’s Disease. And to see if or how we could help her.

Clearly, Carragh was upset.

And she SHOULD be upset. In fact, she should be FURIOUS!

On the surface, it seemed that Carragh was doing “all the right things.”

She had been following the restrictive diet her functional medicine doctor had given her for nearly a year.

She did the $2700 of labs her doctor recommended – which simply reconfirmed that Carragh had high inflammation, hormone imbalance, adrenal fatigue, and thyroid disorder. (None of this was new information to Carragh.)

She spent $470 A MONTH, for the past 11 months on the recommended supplements, which she was taking without question. ($5,170 total so far and counting)

She was was faithfully taking the (increased) dosage of her thyroid medication as directed.

And this didn’t include the 10 office visits ($275 each, plus the $800 initial visit – $3,550 total)

But despite her compliance and the $11,420 she had already spent, she was still having heart palpitations, fatigue, pain, mood swings, and constipation.

And… her anxiety was increasing!

Here’s the thing…

After many years of working with hundreds of people with autoimmune disease helping them stop their symptoms and reverse the damage, this is what was obvious to me as I listened to Carrah’s story…

The REASON Carragh was struggling:

  • Had nothing to do with her ability to be compliant.
  • Wasn’t because she wasn’t smart enough.
  • Didn’t mean she wasn’t trying hard enough.
  • Wasn’t because she needed more supplements.
  • And it was absolutely not because she was too broken to heal.

The REAL REASON Carragh was struggling was because she was following a blanket, one-size-fits all approach.

  • Her diet wasn’t dialed in for her specific needs.
  • She was taking the same set of supplements everyone of her doctor’s patients was taking, regardless of her symptoms.
  • Her doc was INCREASING her meds rather than supporting her body do what it was DESIGNED TO DO and to heal on its own.
  • There was nothing customized to Carrah specifically.
  • And her labs, though expensive, only confirmed that she was sick and inflamed. They didn’t uncover any underlying reason for WHY she was suffering.

So, if you have (or suspect you have) an autoimmune disease like Hashimoto’s, Celiac, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Crohn’s, or Diabetes…

If you are struggling with hormone imbalance…

If you are dealing with thyroid disorder…

If you have Leaky Gut…

If you have Adrenal Disfunction, high levels of stress, or are tired throughout the day….

If you are simply exhausted by trying to figure out what to do to feel better…

… And you want a personalized plan to approach your autoimmune issues.

  • Have you seen other doctors and practitioners who simply don’t know how to help you?
  • Do you feel alone trying to figure out what’s going on and how to fix it?

  • Participate on camera so double-check that your camera and microphone are working. (A headset or earbuds are helpful, too!)

Insider Secrets: Don’t Get Sucked Into Incomplete Solutions!

Yesterday, Anthony and I discussed some insider secrets on how to not get sucked into incomplete solutions.

We discuss several common themes that might ring true for you if you’re working with an incomplete solution…

  • you’re still suffering from persisting symptoms
  • you consistently need to continue taking supplements or doing treatments
  • you’re not getting the one-on-one support you need
  • you continually need to spend money on additional labs, supplements, etc.
  • you’re not addressing the emotional or mental component of healing

So if you suffer from…

  • Celiac disease
  • Hashimoto’s
  • Crohn’s
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Heart disease, etc…

… and you’re not getting at the root of your symptoms… then this episode is perfect for you!

What’s With the Diagnosis?

Yesterday, Anthony and I discussed the concept of getting a solid diagnosis and whether or not it even MATTERS…

Here are some of the issues we see revolving around focusing ON the diagnosis…

  • The nightmare of “yet”… your doctor doesn’t have an official diagnosis because the lab doesn’t show results that are that bad… yet. They don’t know what to do without a diagnosis and therefore often do nothing… while you just get sicker.
  • Guessing at the underlying root cause… making assumptions rarely helps. Treating something that isn’t really there can be detrimental to your health!
  • Not seeing your illness as a whole… chasing a diagnosis can sometimes distract from how the science, food, and soul come together for true healing.

So if you suffer from…

  • extreme exhaustion
  • digestive issues
  • chronic pain
  • food sensitivities
  • thyroid or hormone issues

… and doctor’s can’t figure out what’s really going on… then this episode is perfect for you!

Traditional Elimination Diets

Yesterday, Anthony and I discussed the 7 Reasons why traditional elimination diets can make your Autoimmune Disease WORSE

Elimination diets often mean…

  1. You’re getting conflicting advice – feeling overwhelmed and confused by too much or too little information
  2. Your plan has not been tailored specifically for you – your unique situation and needs are going to be different from other people if you really want to see healing progress
  3. You’re missing the true root of your symptoms – confusion about symptoms can lead to worsening of symptoms
  4. You have a broken relationship with food – does food feel like the enemy to you?
  5. You don’t know how to reintroduce foods safely – doing it the wrong way can send your body into a tailspin and make it feel like you can’t make progress
  6. Your practitioner doesn’t have enough Autoimmune Disease experience to truly help you heal – getting advice from someone with niche experience can boost your success
  7. You’re not addressing the entire picture – are you focusing on just the foods and forgetting the science and emotional aspects?

So if you suffer from…

  • Celiac disease
  • Hashimoto’s
  • Crohn’s
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Heart disease, etc…

… if your GOAL is to understand more about your Autoimmune Disease and how to heal… then this episode is perfect for you!

Fatigue, Exhaustion, Anxiety, Depression… how do you fix these symptoms?

Last week, Anthony and I discussed symptoms like fatigue, exhaustion, anxiety, and depression… and how you can start to fix these symptoms.

We break down a few key trends that we see from people who experience these common symptoms, including…

  • socializing in support groups in a way that perpetuates the idea that sickness and suffering is the only way – do you truly believe in your capacity to heal when you finally find the complete answer to your health puzzle?
  • looking for general solutions instead of the customized approach that your body actually needs – are you seeing the whole picture or just trying to deal with one thing at a time?
  • trying to force something that is not working for your body – are you preventing your healing process by leaning into an approach that your body is rejecting?
  • not treating the body as a whole unit – are you looking at the body as separate components rather than one, complete picture?
  • not addressing all aspects of your Autoimmune Disease – does your approach bring together the food, the science, and the soul?

So if you suffer from…

  • Celiac disease
  • Hashimoto’s
  • Crohn’s
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Heart disease, etc…

…if your GOAL is to understand more about your Autoimmune Disease and how to shift stubborn symptoms… then this episode is perfect for you!

Pain & Autoimmune

Yesterday, Anthony and I discussed pain and what it really means about your Autoimmune Condition.

Pain is one of the TOP 4 symptoms we see in people suffering from Autoimmune Conditions, but taking medications on a regular basis has side effects that keep you in crisis mode and make it harder for your body to heal!

We discuss why not identifying the underlying root causes of the disease and systemic inflammation is keeping you in pain and in crisis mode, and dig into three main areas you need to address for healing to occur:

  • the physical body
  • the mental body
  • the emotional body

Understand why pain might be your body’s way of communicating what it needs!

So if you suffer from pain and…

  • Celiac disease
  • Hashimoto’s
  • Crohn’s
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Heart disease, etc…

So, if your GOAL is to understand more about your Autoimmune Disease and how to get out of crisis mode and into a healing mode… then this episode is perfect for you!

How to Treat Autoimmune Disease as a Whole

Yesterday, Anthony and I discussed how to treat Autoimmune Disease as a whole and complete process.

Every episode, we talk about the three main components of a complete healing process…

  1. the Nutrition
  2. the Science
  3. the Soul

So how do we bring all three of these components together and working in harmony?

To explain this, we break down:

  • how to not get caught up in chasing the symptoms, the labs, or the diagnoses because they’re easier to see (science)
  • why diets have to be customized to the needs of the body, and how those needs can change over time (nutrition)
  • how to access and understand the more subtle aspects of your symptoms and disease (soul)

So, if your GOAL is to understand more about your Autoimmune Disease and how to approach your healing as a whole and complete process… then this episode is perfect for you!
