To find lasting relief from gut health problems you have to know the underlying causes. And the causes can be different for everyone -- even if they suffer from the same symptoms. Only then can you know how to appropriately and successfully manage your gut health symptoms.
You'll create a roadmap for a customized strategy based on what you learn about your individual symptoms -- only then can you reach a lasting solution that treats your root causes and repairs leaky gut or gut health problems.
Poor gut health seems complicated and mysterious. You can take something from the drugstore – or the latest fashionable supplement – but it may not address the underlying cause.
Or you could follow a special diet … but they all claim to be the best – how do you know which one to choose?
The digestive tract consists of multiple organs.
How do you know which one is the problem, and if you do know, then how do you choose from the hundreds of possible gut supplements, detoxes, cleanses, or “reboot” programs to fix it?
Those are some of the questions people like yourself face when they decide to start working to heal their gut problems.
The truth is, most of the so-called gut “experts” online have little-to-no clinical experience working with chronically sick patients. They have not been analyzing studies over 20 years, nor are they able to discern good studies from bad, a skill I honed as a clinical research scientist.
They do not have experience innovating functional medicine protocols, testing them in their clinic, and then teaching them to thousands of health care practitioners from around the world. They have not designed, conducted, and published their own research.
Nor have they published books that changed the paradigm of treating chronic health disorders – teaching everyday people how to understand and implement strategies to address complex health topics. Which is why you can’t trust a lot of what you read online about solving your gut problems...
That’s why plenty of smart people give up on their gut problems and resign themselves to constant discomfort or even a limited life. It’s not that they CAN’T do it … they can. It’s just that no one has showed them how in a step-by-step process that encompasses the latest research and clinical findings.
It’s why I decided to put together a comprehensive gut repair course, which took:
Decades of practice and study
Plenty of clinical mistakes made while learning through trial and error, and
A lot of dead ends before being able to put it all together.
You see, health is not linear. Nor is it compartmentalized. In other words, nothing in the body acts independently of the rest of the body. A breakdown in one area affects multiple other areas. The gut is no exception. It is intricately linked to the other organs, your brain function, and your immune system.
This could make understanding – and teaching – this material very difficult. However, I have cracked the code, and present gut health as a puzzle with multiple pieces that fit together. I have done all the hard work and can now share it with you.
I will teach you the same sequence of steps to start fixing gut problems that I use with patients that have extremely complex health conditions.
I first began practicing functional medicine in the late 1990s.
I love what I do and am continually driven to empower people to manage their own chronic health conditions.
My first book changed the paradigm of thyroid care and autoimmunity, and my second book introduced new brain health strategies that are now commonly embraced.
This information has helped thousands of people whose doctors kept telling them nothing was wrong.
They learned how to understand what was causing their chronic health symptoms, to release the fear of “mystery” symptoms by learning about their conditions, and then know what to do about it. And now I want to introduce breakthrough strategies in healing your gut, based on my decades of practice, research, and teaching.
Throughout my practice, every patient that came in had a different underlying cause for their symptoms; no two patients were alike. The protocols I had been taught worked on some and not others and it frustrated me not knowing why.
The good news is that all that I learned from those mistakes has gone into creating Gut Health: Solving the Puzzle.
I constructed this program after decades of enormous investment that I can now break down and teach to you as pieces of a puzzle that fit together. I know how to analyze the gastrointestinal tract from top to bottom, pinpoint where digestive function is breaking down, and how to restore function.
As I was learning, I frequently wished there was some kind of instruction manual—something I could turn to that would show me step-by-step exactly how to analyze the ways the digestive tract, brain, and immune system work together.
Of course, there wasn’t. So I had to create my own to share with others.
I am a Harvard Medical School trained researcher, academic professor, and a functional medicine health care provider.
Today, my clinical models of functional medicine are used by several academic institutions, and thousands of healthcare clinics and practices throughout the world.
I maintain a private practice in San Diego, California, and consult with patients from all over the world who are seeking non-pharmaceutical alternatives. My practice is focused on developing a personalized medical approach using diet, nutrition, and lifestyle approaches.
Why I’m excited to tell you about my NEW online course Gut Health: Solving the Puzzle.
It’s designed for people like you, people who suffer from:
Gut Health: Solving the Puzzle is a step-by-step guide for identifying why your gut health is not working well and what to do about it. I have broken the content down into short digestible chunks with plenty of supporting material.
And, because I explain things step-by-step through the course, you will understand it if you don't know anything about the gastrointestinal tract or how the body functions.
In fact, by the time you get to the end of it, you will know more about digestive health and dysfunction than a medical provider will ever share with you. You will even be able to help your friends and family (after all, it’s estimated 65% of Americans struggle with at least one digestive symptom).
I'll even teach you how to learn whether more complex factors such as brain dysfunction or autoimmunity are causing your gut problems (or vice versa), things you won't learn in the standard health care model.
1. Master your own gut health.
2. Get rid of embarrassing, frustrating symptoms that seem hopeless.
3. Learn how to identify the underlying cause of your gut problems.
4. Lower your risk of chronic pain, disease, dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, depression, and other disorders that stem from poor gut health.
Whether you struggle with IBS, diarrhea, acid reflux, constipation, bloating and gas, abdominal pain, or chronic leaky gut — here is a tip I have always seen hold true in more than 20 years of practice:
Start at the top. The gut operates in a north-to-south hierarchy. That means you have to start with the mouth and work your way down.
Are you chewing your food thoroughly, making enough saliva, does your stomach have enough acid, is your gallbladder secreting bile, is your pancreas secreting enzymes, how is your gut bacteria, and so on?
Breakdowns can occur anywhere along this path and if you skip any one of them, you most likely won’t have good results. Many different things can cause gut problems — the key is to learn which ones affect you.
Only then can you develop a customized protocol that targets your weak spots, and you must work north-to-south to address them.
I have had countless numbers of patients whose previous protocols failed because they did not follow the north-to-south rule. For instance, chronic abdominal pain turned out to be due to a congested gallbladder or insufficient stomach acid.
If you don’t start where the problem is, supplements, diets, detoxes, or other protocols will often be ineffective. I also show you easy methods for learning how to evaluate symptoms related to poor gut function, which areas specifically are breaking down, and why.
• You’re not a health expert (you will know more than most at the end of this program).
• You don’t think you’re any good at human health and physiology (you will be).
• You have no prior experience with supplements, nutritional therapy, diets, or lifestyle changes (I’ll show you).
• You think taking charge of your own health sounds too complicated (it won’t be).
By learning how to evaluate what is causing your gut health symptoms, you can then make clear and concise decisions to improve function.
I will teach you how to pinpoint which areas to address so you don't waste time and money chasing empty promises from the many internet products and programs out there. What you need depends on your unique situation.
But Gut Health: Solving the Puzzle doesn’t just teach how to evaluate your gastrointestinal function…
With my course, you’ll also learn easy methods for understanding how to spot and address declining gut function that will serve you lifelong.
For instance, I’ll also show you how to determine if your gut symptoms are caused by an unhealthy balance in your gut bacteria, or gut microbiome …
... so you don't waste time chasing the wrong problem when an unhealthy gut microbiome could be the culprit.
There is no miracle probiotic that's going to fix your microbiome problems.
Instead, I'll show you simple and highly effective ways in your own kitchen to overhaul your gut microbiome – and thus make profound changes to your overall health.
What is the organ most people with gut problems ignore? The brain.
If you feel like you are being held hostage your gut problems — don’t forget about your brain health.
One of the most common symptoms I see in patients with declining brain function is a chronic gut health problem.
That’s because the gut and the brain communicate through an information super-highway called the vagus nerve.
Whether it's a recent head injury or one from years ago, brain inflammation, a brain that is aging too quickly, or brain autoimmunity — if your brain is suffering your gut is too.
I'll explain the 21 causes of leaky gut.
If you are doing a one-size-fits-all leaky gut protocol or product, you're missing the key piece of the puzzle to restoring gut function.
You must know why you developed leaky gut in order to repair it. I will teach you how to spot which of the 21 causes may apply to you.
Poor gut health isn’t just uncomfortable – it significantly raises your risk for serious health disorders such as autoimmune disease, neurodegeneration diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, psychiatric disorders, and life-threatening illnesses such as heart attack, stroke, and diabetes.
It also causes symptoms outside of the gut, such as chronic pain, fatigue, depression, skin problems, joint degeneration, mood disorders, and other seemingly irresolvable issues.
And lastly, it makes you much more vulnerable to viruses and bacterial infections, and it makes it harder to recover from them.
The majority of Americans report living with a chronic gastrointestinal symptom.
What people don't realize is this could be raising their risk for chronic disease, a slow and painful demise in their elder years, worsening brain function, and a high risk for dementia and Alzheimer's or Parkinson's.
In fact, studies show the seniors who live past 100 all have one thing in common — their gut is healthier than that of their peers who experience a steep decline in their quality of life.
It’s often said the seat of the immune system is in the gut, and science has shown there’s a lot of truth to this. In other words, if you struggle with chronic gut symptoms, it means your immune system, brain, hormones, cardiovascular system, and other pathways in your body are likely compromised to some degree as well.
It is impossible to successfully manage your health without establishing gut health as a foundation.
Likewise, it is impossible to successfully manage your gut health if you are also not tending to other health dysfunctions, such as poor brain health, runaway blood sugar issues, untreated hypothyroidism, or other health issues. I show you how to fit all these pieces together to complete the puzzle.
I’ve helped many patients experience all these things as a functional medicine clinician, researcher, author, and educator. You can too, by putting the information I teach in the course to work.
