As you know, healing the gut is first base to healing the rest of the body and because each of your clients and patients are challenged by different health issues and are in different stages of healing, it's important for you to set individual goals and expectations with each of them for their unique Gut Thrive experience.
Because "we can't improve what we can't measure," it's important to capture where they are now in Session #1 (after the initial health intake) with the Symptom Wheel. You will then have them revisit that same information again mid-way through the program after they complete the pathogen purge and a third time, 3 months after the program is complete (as their terraforming process will continue). This will help them feel the improvement at three key stages. When you have them fill out this document in session with you, let them know that this process is theirs to experience and own and that their results will depend on how much or how little they put into it.
The Goals Sheet will help you and your client or patient to place realistic, attainable and measurable goals for their healing journey. Let them now that organization and planning will be key to their success. We’ve given you the Program Timeline we use with our Gut Thrivers to execute the program in 11 weeks. You can use this as a base and extend each of the five steps as you need to based upon your client’s progress and physical and emotional capacity for change, which should set the pace of their program.
