Lesson 5: Prepping the Body and Mind
It's prep time! As you prep your client’s body and mind in Week 1 (and potentially beyond because remember you are guiding them at THEIR pace), there are specific action items that you want you follow in the Action Items for Getting Started and Step 1 handout. Watch this video and read all of the PDFs as they support the preparation process. Not all of your clients and patients will need all of the handouts based upon if they come to you with an already healthy lifestyle. This is for you to pick and choose which to give them. Christa goes over an action plan on the How to Implement Webinar and will help you discern how to customize to your case studies in the Training Webinar. Remember, the mental and emotional component is as important as the physical. You will find a talk (audio) by our friend Mary Shenouda and a video by Lissa Rankin, MD that will begin to address this aspect of their healing. We recommend you share these with your client or patients in Week 1 and have them refer to them as needed for additional reinforcement as they navigate the program - and of course you will be there as their coach with more tools and support to help them get through as healing is NOT a linear process and neither you nor they should expect it to be. This is your week to prepare their body to go into the 5-Step Gut Thrive process with more grace and ease. Use this time wisely and extend it as long as you feel your client or patient needs. The time frame is not as important as consistent progress is.
The Shocking Truth About Food by Lissa Rankin
Lissa Rankin is a medical doctor enlightening the medical community about the importance of addressing the whole person. When there is not a pill to subdue the symptom, a lab test to diagnose a dis-ease, or a surgery to "cut it out", she talks about the importance of then turning to one's mental and emotional health as a curative agent.
