People often ask us what we’ve found to be the most common hurdles to the healing process.

So, in no specific order, these are the Top 13 Biggest Blocks we see to people being able to get on the right path to their healing journey:

  1. No customized healing plan aligned to your needs
  2. Lack of belief in the process – don’t feel aligned with the process or practitioner
  3. Working with someone who doesn’t understand what you’re going through
  4. Not addressing the soul and emotional healing components as a part of the overall process
  5. Not believing you can heal
  6. Feeling broken and not understanding what to do.
  7. Plan not customized / too general / blanket system designed for the masses
  8. Medications
  9. Too reliant on supplements
  10. Not uncovering the root causes for symptoms and diagnosis
  11. Too focused on diet as the only solution
  12. Fear
  13. Lack of support and guidance

How much longer can you go on feeling like this?

The fatigue, the anxiety, the pain, the digestive issues… they’re not normal.

You shouldn’t feel like that.

And deep down, you know that. Let the truth surface, rather than stuffing it down and pretending it’s not that bad.

The more you stuff it down, the worse the symptoms will get.

Your symptoms are your body’s way of communicating with you. And what it’s telling you is that it’s in trouble and it needs your help.

What do you do when you’ve “tried everything,” but nothing ever worked?

Well, maybe it did work, but…

  • the results only lasted a few weeks or months.
  • it was too difficult to follow the restrictive diet and keep up with the daily regimen of supplements.
  • you only feel like you got some of the results you were hoping for.
  • you were told, after several months of being compliant that you simply had to wait longer for results.
  • you weren’t sure what to think because there was no support with the book, or program, or supplement you bought and didn’t know what to do next.

These are all pretty typical comments we hear from people who have been trying for awhile to find the right path… the right plan… and the right customized strategy for their specific healing needs.

And if you’re feeling like that, too… you’re not alone. 

So great, you know you’re not the only one, but how does that help you find the right plan for you?

First… you need to check in and ask yourself, “Do I believe there is a plan out there waiting just for me that will help me reach my healing goals?”

If the answer is “No,” then I suggest taking a deep breath and digging in deep to find that place inside you that believes you are worth continuing search. That piece of you that knows you are worth looking under another rock for the answer. You are worth finding that right path just for you. But if you still can’t find that place of belief, then ask yourself this…. “What is it hooked me in and got me started reading this in the first place and still wants me to continue reading if I don’t believe there’s an answer to my health challenges?”

My guess, is that little light of hope is still shinning in you somewhere, but it just might be very dim right now. The great part is that it’s STILL SHINING. All you have to do is focus on that light and let it fill you with enough hope to keep searching! I promise you the answer is out there…. Keep reading and see if this is what you’ve been looking for.

If the answer is Yes!, then keep reading.

Here are the most common underlying blocks we’ve found prevents people from finding the right healing path for them so they get sustained results.

  • The protocol is too strict.
  • The plan is too generic and isn’t customized to you and your specific needs.
  • Too many supplements.
  • There is no plan.
  • Not enough support
  • No emotional support
  • Process doesn’t resonate with you.
  • Incomplete process
  • There is no piece of the process that helps you retrain the brain out of fight-or-flight mode.

There is no one way to heal all people from all things. But there is a specific path for you to reach your healing goals.

And on every path, you need three things:

  1. A custom plan
  2. Tools to stop the root causes and retrain the body and mind to get out of crisis mode and get on a healing path
  3. Support to avoid pitfalls, feel confident you’re on the right path, and heal.

And if the plan you’re on right now doesn’t have those things, then you are going to keep spinning on the Hamster Wheel of Hell.

If you’re ready to get off the hamster wheel, and find a plan dialed in for you specifically for long term success, then you should schedule an appointment to talk with us for a brief chat to see if or how our process can work for you.

Lawsuits that pay “damages” when someone has “suffered” due to someone else’s negligence. “Pain and suffering” is a legally support concept which is supported by money. So your pain, suffering, symptoms, issues… are all “measurable and legitimate losses. So, every day you are suffering with pain, foggy brain, fear, acne, wight gain, disconnect from your friends, spouse, children… no longer doing things you love like hiking, traveling, painting, dancing, hanging out with friends… they are all a valuable loss.

Maybe you closed your business, or left your job, or stopped making plans with friends because you feel terrible or can no longer trust how you’re going to feel and it’s just easier not to make plans or have people depend on you.

And that’s just not ok.

So, if you were a jury, how would you measure the loss of joy you are experiencing right now from no longer participating in the activities and experiences you use to love?

How much money would it be to reimburse that amount of suffering and loss?

Is it $20K? $100k? $1 million?

How much is it worth for you to get that back?

How much longer can you afford to pay those kinds of damages? Because even if you’re not paying them in actual dollars, you are paying them in loss of wages, lost clients, lost of joy, loss of time with your loved ones, loss of time trying to find an answer, loss of belief that you will ever get better, and loss of health – which can be catastrophic.

So, ask yourself this… why are you still allowing yourself to suffer and lose?

And how much longer are you willing to pay these hefty losses?

How much more are you willing to pay?

You have the power to make the CHOICE to stop the bleeding… of costs and end the suffering for you and the people who care about you.

Because you are not the only one who is suffering. This is impacting everyone around you. And as much as you try to hide the pain and the suffering from your family and friends… they feel it. They are also suffering by losing the connection with you. And losing the ability to see you at your best self. At your truest, deepest, authentic you.

And that… is a terrible terrible loss.

Suffering is a choice.

It is. And if that makes you angry, then I’m sorry. Well… actually, I’m not so sorry. I’m actually excited for you, because it means your brain is reacting to something it feels deeply… which means… you are potentially dancing right along the edge of a major break through in your healing trajectory, that will completely change your life.

And if you’re interested in what it will take to actually change your life and get your health back, then take deep breath….

Let go…

And continue reading…

First, decide that you are worth enough to stop your pain and suffering and decide… once and for all… to choose freedom.

Freedom… from what’s holding you back.
Freedom… from things which are not serving you.
Freedom… from thoughts, feelings, and beliefs that perhaps once helped you but are now not propelling you forward.
Freedom… from the nonsense you’ve been told about how your symptoms or disease are not reversible.
Freedom… from fear.
​​​​​​​Freedom… from confusion.
​​​​​​​Freedom… of misinformation.

When I’m coaching a client on retraining her brain, I’m often helping her get a better insight into how or why her thoughts or behaviors are in her way and no longer serving her.

Stick with me here…

The subconscious brain (which is the part which silently rules 90% of your thoughts, beliefs, and actions) focuses on repetitive patterns and what it’s most familiar with.

So, if you’re doing, thinking, or believing something which is harmful to you, there has to be a reason why you continue that action, thought, or belief.

And it often is attached to your core identity and values system.

For example, If you believe that asking for help is a weakness, and figuring out how to heal on your own is the only respectable way to do it, then asking for help is bad in your core identity. This means, that it would be worse to get help – even if it was the exact help you needed and said you wanted – than the suffering you will endure as you continue trying to find a solution on your own.

Keep in mind, these thoughts are not conscious or rational. They are usually running under the surface of your conscious thoughts, whispering to you ever so quietly saying things like:

If you accept help, that means you have failed. You can figure this out on your own. Things are that bad, yet. If you read just one more book or watch one more video or read one more FB post then maybe, just maybe, you’ll find the answer you’ve been looking for.

But seriously, the answer you need isn’t in the next post, blog, or diet. And if you were brutally honest with yourself, you already know that.

You’re smart. You’ve done the research. You’ve read the blogs. You’ve seen the videos. You’ve done the diets.

And, honestly, if a complete solution was in any of those things, you would have found it by now.

But you haven’t.

Or, perhaps, you believe that your needs have to come after everyone else’s needs have been satisfied. And putting your needs above your children, or spouse, or clients, or friends would be WORSE than your private suffering from symptoms while you steal moments here and there trying to find a solution in your “spare time” once you feel “everyone else’s needs have been taken care of.”

This is misalignment of core identity.

Because in order to truly serve others best, you must be at your best self. And to be at your best self, you must put your primary healing needs first. By putting other’s first, you actually create an internal identity conflict, which will not only cause your symptoms to get worse, it will actually hurt your ability to serve others at your best.

I spoke with a woman not that long ago who was crying as she told me how bad her Hashimoto’s symptoms had gotten. She even admitted that she feared she would leave her five children motherless because her symptoms were getting progressively worse. She said she was ready to heal and was ready to do anything in order to do that.

I was 100% confident that given the right tools, process, and support designed specifically for her the way we do for all our clients, that she would not only be able to stop the progression of her disease, but that she would be able to not only heal from the damage caused by the Hashimoto’s, but also surface her authentic, balanced true self.

But sadly, her underlying core beliefs surfaced about her sense of self worth. When we discussed investing in herself in order to reach all of her health and life goals, she instantly caved in on herself.

“Oh, my husband would never let me spend that much on my healing,” she said.

And her mother, who had been part of our conversation the entire time was appalled by this and called her daughter out by saying, “But he would spend that much on a new gun for his collection!”

She replied, “Yes, but he’s former military, so he needs his guns.”

Her subconscious brain over ruled what she said she wanted, and she choose to stick with what had become familiar to her… suffering and putting the needs of others first.

Obviously, because you’re not emotionally attached to this woman or her husband and his guns, it’s probably clear to you that gun is not an actual need. And that the fear of dying, is something that should probably be way up high on the list of needs, right?

Of course you see that, just as this woman’s mother saw it. But because of her underlying, subconscious belief which she was not ready or willing to let go of, she will sadly stay stuck and not be able to heal.

And as a healer, this makes me sad, and frustrated, and angry.

But, I cannot want someone’s healing more than they do.

So, let me ask you… what underlying core identity belief is stopping you from healing?

What belief block (which often masks itself as an excuse) is in your way that you must remove in order to accepting the help you need in order to heal?

How much more should you suffer before you push that block out of your way and stop up and claim your health?

One of the most brilliant examples of pushing a belief block out of the way and shifting perspective came from one of our clients, Leslie.

NOTE: If you want to hear the whole story: click this link (You can jump to 30 mins and 20 seconds if you want to see this specific part – and I promise you it’s worth it. Spoiler alert… It’s the first time a client has made me cry on camera.)

Here’s a quick excerpt:

Leslie: I don’t know if you remember, when you told us, but my grandma was like [gasp!]…

Kirstin: You mean how much the program was?

Leslie: Right. And she just about fell out of her chair!

Group: [laughter]

Leslie: But… I had just told my husband a few weeks prior, “I really think you should up my life insurance. Like, something’s not right.” 

[tears] And I truly knew that where I was in my life was not good. And the for some reason, somehow… your voodoo magic, whatever… [laugh] you popped up in my feed on Facebook. 

I have no idea on how I even found you. Or you found me. 

And I financially couldn’t do the program. I had to take out of my retirement just to do it, but I knew… what’s the price you want to pay? 

Do you want to take out more life insurance because your kids won’t have you around? Or do you take out part of your future that you’re trying to save up for ‘cause you want to be here… And… I don’t know. You get what I’m saying…. 

‘Cause that’s what I need to do to get here because I was in that bad of a place. 

So if anything, for that whole emotional part, when you struggle over the money, you really have to counterbalance what truly is important in your life. So that’s where I’m at!

And I don’t regret it at all!

Kirstin: So you pulled from your future, so that you would have one?

Leslie: Yes.

And as you saw, if you watched the whole video, in just 12 weeks, Leslie was in a totally different place, had reconciled with her spouse, and was killing it on her health goals. And even better, she knew with certainty that she was on the right track for long term, consistent success!

And that was the best, straight-forward example I’d seen in a long time of someone taking a core fear – a core block – and pushing it out of the way.

So I want you to really think about this and take a deep breath.

Ask yourself…
​​​​​​​What is actually stopping you?
What kind of damages are you suffering through?
​​​​​​​What kind of pain are you having right now because you’re not making the choice to step up and push whatever’s in your way right now out of the way, put yourself first, and decide once and for all that YOU are important enough to do whatever it takes to heal?

We see this over and over and over. And there is a direct link between illness, especially autoimmune conditions, and blocks like these. Because what happens is the immune system looks at your soul, it looks at who you are, and it sees that you’re not even stepping up for yourself. You’re putting everyone and everything else in your way.

So your immune system gets confused, and doesn’t believe you’re worth saving.

There’s a direct connection between the immune system attack and moving blocks out of your way, to show your body that you’re worth it.

Your symptoms and even your disease are simply signals from your body saying that there’s a problem.

They are signals saying, “Hey! I need help!”

They are signals saying, “I need you to pay attention to me, and move these damn blocks out of the way because I need to live!”

So, if you’re suffering right now, you need to think long and hard about why juries give millions of dollars to people when they’ve been injured by someone else. But what kind of costs are involved when you’re the one doing the damage?

If you’re staying stuck because you’re not moving your blocks out of the way…

How much is that worth?

It’s measurable.

It’s palpable.

It’s tangible.

And you don’t deserve this.

So, if you’re at a point where you’re ready to step up… and you are saying, “I’m done! I can’t do this anymore! I deserve better! And I’m going to push these blocks out of my way! I’m going to face the fears and whatever is in my path stopping me and blocking me!

The majority of people who have autoimmune disease are smart women who have always been the kind of woman to “get things done.” But it’s this “do it” attitude that often gets them in trouble because they ignore the signs their body has been giving them (sometimes for many many years) and push through when they needed another approach.

This then causes mental, emotional, and physical inflammation, which leads to symptoms, damage, and disease. And often, this causes isolation, fear, anxiety, and pain… with no real answers on how to undo the issues and patterns that got them there in the first place.

In a tribe of other total healing focused people, with built in support and accountability structures, you not only get the personalized answers you’ve been searching for on what caused these issues in the first place, you get there faster and more effectively than you ever would on your own.

So, for all of the research you’ve been doing on your own, alone, without true expert support and guidance, you may have in fact compounded the core reasons why you have symptoms, and added fuel to the fire by increasing harmful, inflammatory stress.

This creates two problems for people with autoimmune conditions and related symptoms:

  1. The first problem is isolation. Humans are naturally wired for connection and relationship. There is a primal need to be part of a “tribe” as part of our survival instinct. Whenever we feel alone, outcast, or separate from our tribe, it causes anxiety and fear in the primal part of the brain. This causes us to question ourselves, worry about our future, and fear survival. This is why so many people with autoimmune disease describe their biggest goal as “to feel normal.” The more isolated or alone people feel, the further they get from healing. Being part of a tribe of others on a similar mission to heal can help fulfill this primal need and propel your healing journey even faster.
  2. The second problem is a lack of expert support. Following blanket advice not designed for you or from people who do not understand or do not have expertise in autoimmune healing can keep you stuck exactly where you are now, and will prevent your growth. Or, it can make things worse. You need support that is tailored to you when you need it. Help that you don’t have to wait weeks to get and is available to you right away.

About isolation: Do you sometimes feel alone, too? Like you’re the only one pushing the boulder up the mountain on your own? Are you like the rest of us in that you sometimes feel isolated in your solo mission to heal? It doesn’t have to be that way. And if you want to heal fully, then you need support from experts who understand and a tribe who gets you, accepts you, and can help you heal… fully.

Surround yourself with other people who have healed and are on the healing path. Especially if you want the confidence that you are on the right path, and you want to get there faster and more effectively than you would have on your own.

If you feel like you’re all over the place, going from one idea of how to heal to the next, without clear direction and a real custom plan, then you are like 95% of the people we meet who are trying to feel better.

In a situation where you feel like you only have yourself to rely on, unsure if you’re actually making the right move, this can be disastrous to your health and lead to more symptoms, more stress, more inflammation, and more disease.

One of our clients, Leslie, a 40-yr-old mother of two, revealed at our Autoimmune Freedom Conference (click for more details) recently that before she met with Nourish for the first time she asked her husband to increase her life insurance policy because she was confident based on her symptoms and research, that she was going to die soon. 

​​​​​​​A few days later, Leslie made a strategy call appointment to meet with us. 

​​​​​​​She said, “I didn’t tell you this when we first met, but I didn’t have the money readily available to work with you, but I knew that I needed a custom plan and support to guide me and I felt confident that Nourish had those pieces. I borrowed from my retirement savings to invest in myself and this program because I knew if I didn’t, then I wouldn’t have a future.”

The fact is, when you have the right plan and expert support, and you align yourself with a community of like-minded people who all have a common goal to heal, there is extra motivation to keep going, even when it feels difficult, and you reach your goals so much faster and more easily.

It’s really hard on your own, and it’s 10 times easier when you have people who see the best in you, who understand what you’re going through, and who fiercely believe in you. It changes everything.

You don’t just feel “boosted” by having expert coaches and being in a community, you also get the answers you need faster than trying to figure it out on your own. You go from taking two days to research something on your own (often with unclear answers), to getting your answer in 10 minutes because you’ve used the understanding support available to you. Within minutes, you get what you need. All your questions get answered. Your fear dissipates. You gain clarity and confidence. And that’s when you propel your healing forward dramatically, and feel better faster. (Sometimes, almost immediately because the confusion and fear that holds many of us trapped in our symptoms… subsides.)

​​​​​​​About Expert Support:

When you feel like you’ve asked for help in the past and did not get the results you were looking for, it can be incredibly discouraging, which hurts your chances of healing. This often leads to fear, loss of hope, shame, and self-blame – all of which are major contributors to triggering or even causing symptoms and disease.

So, if you seek help from practitioners or people who are not experts in helping people heal, then of course, you are going to fail.

There are many “specialists” out there on isolated areas of the body – endocrinologists, cardiologists, orthopedists, etc. The challenge you’ll find when seeking support from one of these specialists, especially when you have autoimmune disease, is that they are not experts in whole body healing. They see you as a “part of” the body (a thyroid, a heart, a joint, etc.), rather than a total system. And, sadly, most of these specialists do not even see healing as an option. At best, they view your symptoms or disease as something you can manage, but rarely do they even believe you can heal.

If the people you are seeking help from don’t understand or believe you can heal, then how can you possibly expect they can help you hit your healing goals?

So, if you’ve seen other practitioners for help in the past, and not gotten the results you wanted, you have to ask yourself… why is that? Well, it’s because they don’t have the answers on healing and they certainly don’t have experience with healing the whole body from autoimmune disease.

How could they when they’ve only been trained to diagnose and prescribe within a system that doesn’t understand that healing is even possible?

That’s why you need a different approach to create new results, especially if you want to heal more effectively, in less time.

Here’s what you need:

1. CUSTOM PLAN Your personal plan designed for you including what to eat, what do do first, how to uncover hidden underlying root causes, how to eliminate the things working against you, and how to retrain your brain to get out of the continual fight-or-flight mode so your body can actually function as it was designed to and help you heal.

2. STEP-BY-STEP DIRECTIONS Trainings on exactly what to do, in what order for you to physically, mentally, and emotionally undo what is not serving you and keeping you stuck. The foundational how-tos on retraining the mind, making great meals, and healing the body are all delivered to you in bite-size pieces, so you can implement them easily. It’s all laid out for you so all you have to do is watch and follow the information provided.

3. LIVE MEETINGS Twice weekly there are energy boosting meetings and Q&As for deep learning, mindset shifts, best practices, and transformation. We create sacred spaces of non-judgment, personal connection, and deep learning, where you make healing shifts and create connections that propel your healing forward.

4. JUST-IN-TIME SUPPORT Open access to the coaches calendars for one-on-one support, as well as email, FB, or text support to answer your burning questions, troubleshoot, gain massive clarity, and profound emotional shifts. You’re usually never more than 24 hours away from the personalized support you need from Kirstin, Anthony, & The Nourish Coaching Team to make better decisions and get the answers to your pressing questions.

5. SUPPORTIVE COMMUNITY The unconditional love and support you’ve been looking for your whole life can be found in our group meeting and buzzing Facebook group. It’s your place to share wins, get feedback, ask for resources, and foster connections from people who totally understand what you’re going through. This is the unparalleled unconditional support you’ve always wished you had. For close to 20 years, I was seeking this type of support, help, feedback, and help elsewhere and couldn’t find it. And none of this was available all in one place. So that’s why I created it for others.

These are the “secret sauce” elements of The Nourish Autoimmune Freedom Program, and why hundreds of other people with autoimmune disease and related issues choose to heal and grow with us, as opposed to going elsewhere.

Find a practitioner who is already where you want to be and understands what you’re going though. If you could have stopped the progression of your disease, turned your symptoms around, and healed… you would have done so already.

To accelerate your results, and stop further damage, you will need to get guidance and support from knowledgeable practitioners who understand.

It’s nearly impossible to give yourself a very good haircut – even if you’re a brilliant hair dresser. You need perspective – which is difficult to have when it’s your head of hair.

And, since chances are likely that cutting hair is not your trained profession, it’s probably not the thing you do for 9 hours a day, 5 days a week, and have been doing for 15 years.

And if you’re not trained to do it, and your perspective is skewed, it’s difficult to see your own blind spots and anticipate problems you’ve never experienced.

You get a good haircut when you reach out to a professional and you get an exceptional, stunning new look when you work with the best in their field.

If you were to require a brain surgery, this would not be the moment to reach out to a general practitioner or even worse, to a friend who is starting medical school. No.

A serious situation requires guidance from an exceptional expert who knows what they’re doing and who does this successfully all day long. The same is true for getting help to heal your body.

This is what I discovered for myself. When I first started having symptoms from Celiac Disease (and later Hashimoto’s), I followed the traditional methods. I saw the traditional doctors and “specialists.” I did the labs. I took the meds. And… even after my diagnosis, I got worse.

Then, because I wasn’t getting anywhere with traditional medicine, I decided to try a combination of trying to do it on my own, along with seeing some naturopathic and functional medicine doctors.

And I started researching… and researching… and researching….

And spending money or more labs, tons of supplements, and alternative treatments.

I’ve followed tons of diets from vegan, raw, paleo, autoimmune paleo, low histamine, low latex, FODMAP, and so many others.

I’ve done acupuncture, chiropractic adjustments, biofeedback, food sensitivity testing, frequency specific microcurrent, nutrient testing, heavy metal testing, hormone replacement, massage, cupping, yoga….

There was so much more, and it’s exhausting to think of how much time, effort, and money I spent trying to find a solution, but only finding fractured pieces.

And since I was spending the money in small chunks and segments, I didn’t realize how much I was spending.

I was bleeding money all over the place. There was $20 here and $30 there for co-pays. $375 for nutrient testing that my insurance didn’t cover. $580 for the hormone testing, that my insurance wouldn’t cover. $400 for a first-time visit to a new naturopath and $150 for each additional office visit, that my insurance wouldn’t cover. $42 for a new supplement here and $75 for another supplement. And eventually I was regularly spending $250 a month and more for supplements.

I didn’t really mind digging into my pockets to pay for labs, or visits that my insurance wouldn’t cover. What upset me was that I didn’t really see the results I had been hoping for.

My food sensitivities seemed to bet getting worse, the embarrassing digestive issues continued along with my terribly painful cystic acne.

A new rash suddenly appeared that no one could identify and my migraines still appeared “for no reason.”

I couldn’t lose weight no matter how hard I worked out and how perfectly I ate. (Oh and then when I DID finally lose weight, I lost so much, so fast that people began hinting (not so subtly) that they were worried I had an eating disorder. Then I couldn’t get it to balance out. Grrrr.)

So after several years of suffering, researching (oh so much researching), seeing both traditional and natural doctors… I was about $25K in the hole (some of which I had to borrow from my family), and I felt like I really had nothing to show for it but a cabinet full of partially used supplements and herbs. And I had picked up a SECOND autoimmune disease (Hashimoto’s) in the process. Fantastic.

This is when I went back to school for nutrition, closed my consulting company, and opened a gluten-free restaurant in Arizona.

I didn’t know what I didn’t know about healing, and I certainly did not know how to heal from a complex issue such as autoimmune disease. Of course, to make it more fun, I now had to heal from two autoimmune issues and was terrified there was another one (or two) waiting in the wings.

What I also didn’t realize then was, with each new level of discovery on why this was happening to me or what the symptoms meant, there was another hidden level of healing.

And what I finally discovered is that the practitioners I had been seeing, didn’t understand those levels either because, though some may have been “experts” in a particular part of the body (endocrinologist, cardiologist, gastro-internist, etc.), none of them were experts in total healing for someone with autoimmune disease.

Not one of them understood how to help me heal… fully.

You’re smart. If you could have healed on your own already, or healed with the practitioners you have been working with, then you would have done it already. And it takes a strong character like yours to be able to vulnerably admit that you don’t know what you don’t know. Or to go against the advice of doctors who have lead you down the wrong path, but were supposed to have the answers.

Here’s my advice:

Dig deep inside yourself and be truthful… do you believe you are going to get better following the path you are currently on?

Seek out a practitioner who understands what you’re dealing with, has had to travel their own healing path, and now lives the healthy life that you are striving towards. (Someone who can show you the ropes and help you avoid the pitfalls so you can leverage their many years of real-life experience and mastery.)

Watch videos and testimonials to get a feel for whether you will get results.

Then, take the leap of faith and hire them to partner with you to create, and guide you through, your unique healing path.

Follow their advice of, “I’ve been where you are and now I’m on the other side of it. Do this, not that.”

Follow the steps and processes they’ve created that have already worked and been vetted by hundreds and hundreds of other people like you (without overthinking it too much).

Borrow their belief and experience in healing until you fully believe it yourself.

Then go all-in on your health and follow their advice. I would have given anything for a clear path on what I specifically had to do to heal for me. But sadly, there was nothing out there like that when I was struggling. That’s why Anthony and I both went back to school, and created the Nourish Autoimmune Freedom Program for the masses of people with autoimmune disease and related symptoms so they could get all the unique pieces they needed to heal.

This is a proven approach. If you resonate with me and what you’re reading here, perhaps we should talk.

You can visit to set up an exploratory call about what it would be like to join the Nourish Autoimmune Freedom program yourself. This strategy call is free. (We are here to listen deeply about your health challenges, where you’d like to be in 3 – 12 months, and we’ll help you map out a plan for getting there, whether it involves us or not. We are happy to help either way.)

Often, people become discouraged when they finally find a path to healing, because they question the path and assume it’s supposed to be a straight line.

It is not.

In fact, the line often dips, plateaus, spikes, wanes, and leaps forward as you hit new levels of healing. And with each new level, there are often questions, new challenges, and new “muscles” to be built to sustain the new shifts physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Even though the line doesn’t always go straight up, it needs to continually move forward in order to reach total healing.

When you follow a plan not designed for you, the line can often go up in the beginning, giving you false hope, but then it will bottom out as you hit unanticipated roadblocks non-custom plans don’t anticipate, because it wasn’t designed for your specific needs.

When you follow a plan that was designed for you, it will flex and adjust as you get stronger and learn how to change your mindset, eliminate physical toxins, and grow. But if you are still expecting that everything is going to be good every single day, and do not anticipate challenges, then you may fall off the line altogether.

The body was designed to compound whatever it is most familiar with mentally, emotionally, and physically. For example, if your mind is set in the idea that you are sick and cannot heal… then your body will believe that, and be more susceptible to illness. Or, if you currently have a bacterial imbalance in the gut that is not being addressed, then the body will compound that imbalance and keep you spinning off track.

But, if your body sees that you are (finally) paying attention, you are addressing it’s needs, and you are listening to its cries for help… then it will begin to let go of the things that are not serving it, and compound your healing. The more familiar the body becomes with the things that are helping it heal, the more it will do those things, propelling you up the healing path faster and more easily.

This is what we call “Exponential Compounded Healing”.

So, even though the line doesn’t always feel straight as you heal, when you have a plan designed for you with the right support, you will continue to consistently move forward. And as you move forward, the body will begin to learn and understand what it needs to do to stay on the path, compound what serves it, and eliminate or move past the things that don’t.

And that’s how you reach long term, total healing.

The United States recently won, for the FIFTH year in a row, the pathetic designation of having the WORST health care system among industrialized nations by the Commonwealth Fund due to poor outcomes, despite spending the most amount of money.

So, if you continue to seek help from traditional medical doctors, trained only to look for a diagnosis and prescribe medications based on that diagnosis, then you are going to stay on the hamster wheel of symptoms, illness, and disease.

You don’t need a diagnosis, what you need is the answer to one simple, one-word question: Why?

  • Why is this happening to me?
  • Why is my body reacting like this?
  • Why do I have these symptoms?
  • Why am I not getting better, despite efforts?
  • Why can’t my body heal?
  • Why is the only answer medication?
  • Why don’t my doctors have acceptable answers to my questions?

And I’ll give you a hint: the answers are NOT:

  • “Because you are destined for disease.”
  • “Because it’s genetic.” (Genetics play a SMALL role in disease. Environment plays a GIANT role in influencing genetics. If genetics were the only answer, then everyone who has a parent with a disease would always get that disease. Which obviously isn’t the case.)

Break free of traditional healthcare and get solution that works for you and doesn’t keep you stuck in a system that doesn’t support (or even understand) complete healing.
