Who We Are

Hippocrates

“All diseases begin in the gut”
Hippocrates 460-370 BC

Foundation

This quote from the man considered to be the father of modern medicine, is the root idea underlying everything we teach and counsel, here at Go With Your Gut Health. We are dedicated to spreading the word about the supreme importance of gut health with regard to ALL health. In fact, we believe that all health flows from nutritious foods consumed and digested fully, and that poor nutrition and even undigested highly nutritious foods, lead to chronic inflammation, gut microbe imbalances and eventually to all of the disease states currently plaguing mankind. Most of these disease states are considered unrelated by conventional medicine and are treated as such (unrelated), by allopathic medical practitioners using their tools of surgery and pharmaceuticals.

Disease States
  • Allergies
  • Autoimmune disorders and diseases, including Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, IBS, Crohn’s, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriasis, etc.
  • Colitis
  • Gall Bladder Issues
  • Heart Disease
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Autism Spectrum
  • ADD/ADHD
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Psychological Problems, Including Chronic Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Depression, OCD, Addiction, etc.
OUR MISSION

It is our mission to educate individual clients as well as groups about what constitutes nutritious food, and how digestion needs to work in order to function properly in feeding the trillions of cells that make up our bodies as well as the tens of trillions of beneficial microbes that should inhabit our gastrointestinal tracts, helping us to reverse disease states and maintain true health. As all individuals differ, each one of us is a bio-individual and therefore no one diet fits all. There are however, certain universals with regard to what constitutes a generally healthy food, and we can basically sum it up in one sentence: A healthy, nourishing food is a food that is unprocessed, nutrient dense and in its whole form, preferably organic and locally sourced. Go With Your Gut Health is closely aligned with the teachings of Weston A Price and counsels those interested in the Gut and Psychology/Physiology Syndrome (GAPS) Diet.

Did you know?
  • That a healthy gut should have approximately 10 times the amount of beneficial microbes inhabiting it, as make up your entire body?
  • That over 70% of your immune system is in your gut?
  • That your gut has an Enteric Nervous System (ENS – also called our “Second Brain”) embedded in it that contains more neurons (100 million!) than in your spinal cord or peripheral nervous system and can mostly function alone, without any instruction from the Central Nervous System (CNS = Brain and Spinal Cord)?
  • That the ENS uses more than 30 neurotransmitters, including dopamine, glutamate, norepinephrine, nitric oxide and serotonin. In fact, 95% of the body’s serotonin is found in the bowels! No wonder people with anxiety issues often have gut issues as well!

We developed the name Go With Your Gut Health for our company because we know that not only is gut health mandatory for all physical as well as mental and emotional health, but we also recognize that this miraculous “second brain” helps to always guide us towards balance and healing through what we call “intuition”. Intuition is the gut’s voice and if we will but listen, it will always point us in the right direction!

How We Can Help You

Go With Your Gut Health addresses the nutritional foundations of gut health, which include Diet, Digestion, Blood Sugar Balance, Fatty Acid Balance, Mineral Balance and Hydration. We educate clients about what nutritional protocols can help heal reflux, GERD, Gall Bladder issues, bloating, chronically inflamed leaky guts, allergies, colitis, IBS, etc., etc. We specialize in autoimmune conditions stemming from gut problems.

Also addressed at Go With Your Gut Health are the other equally important forms of nourishment mandatory for supremely vibrant health, including the individual’s Personal Relationships, Career, Exercise, and Spiritual needs.

We SEE (Support, Educate and Empower) you, our clients, and continually remind you to do your best…every chance you get…to replace your fear with curiosity. This is what a warrior must do. We want to further encourage you to think of yourselves as warriors – peace-keeping warriors…not battling others, but engaging in on-going resistance to your own, more fearful and undermining inner voices.

Although genetics obviously can play a significant role in health matters, our belief at Go With Your Gut Health is that epigenetics may play an even larger role, as environmental elements, including our lifestyle choices, have the powerful ability to turn on AND TURN OFF DNA sequences. Your future health is NOT written in stone. You have tremendous power to determine your future health.

We Believe…

You CAN heal. Your body WANTS to heal. Your body, mind and spirit seek balance…always. To your very last day, healing in all its forms is possible. The trick is to be able to understand what your body-mind-spirit seeks and furnish the nourishment (of all kinds) needed to heal and rebuild where necessary. You just have to learn how to get out of your own way, get educated and become empowered to help yourself. That’s what we at Go With Your Gut Health are here for. Please contact us…we want to help!
