ENROLLMENT OPPORTUNITY CLOSES JUNE 9TH AT MIDNIGHT
AND WILL NOT REOPEN UNTIL SPRING OF 2016
There is no "one-size-fits-all" solution for digestive health. Healing your gut requires more than just taking supplements and eating different foods.
It requires the right holistic approach. You need to know exactly what is causing your problems and then have a well-defined, effective, yet simple strategy to heal.
In our new Gut Thrive in Five™ program, we share this proven, scientific 5-Step method for rejuvenating your entire digestive system.
HEAL YOUR GUT AND IMMUNE SYSTEM SO YOU CAN LIVE A HAPPIER, HEALTHIER LIFE STARTING TODAY
More than 64 millions Americans suffer with digestive disease; another 50 million have autoimmune disease. Almost everyone who eats the standard American diet has Leaky Gut Syndrome (aka intestinal permeability). The good news is there is a solution for even the most severe gut issues: Gut Thrive in Five™ is your tried and tested five-step process to create optimal gut health.
Some of the symptoms and manifestations of an unhealthy gut include, but are not limited to:
- Bloating and gas
- Brain fog
- Food sensitivities
- Malabsorption of nutrients
- Hair loss and brittle nails
- Thyroid and adrenal conditions
- Autoimmune disorders like Hashimoto’s, IBS, Lupus, and Fibromyalgia
- Type 2 Diabetes and Insulin Resistance
- Joint pain
- Headaches and migraines
- Memory issues
- Skin issues like eczema, psoriasis, rosacea and acne
- Diarrhea or constipation
- Heartburn and acid reflux
- Stomach aches and indigestion
- Unexplained weight loss
- Weight gain (no matter what you eat or how much you exercise)
I feel incredibly grateful, relieved, and excited to have been guided to this outstanding work. I have spent years very sick and a ton of money trying all kinds of ineffective remedies for issues that no one could identify. I am not speaking as an overnight success story but as one who continues to improve over time as my gut heals and strengthens. Through Gut Thrive in Five, I feel more in alignment with my body and nature and have more energy and enthusiasm than I have had in 5 years!Shannon M. Orangevale, CA
This program has had a remarkable impact on my thyroid health. The results amazed my doctor. When I saw my lab test results, I knew that I could fully reverse my thyroid disease. For the first time in my life, I’m experiencing true healing.Amanda B. Queensland, Australia
Bloating, abdominal pain, gas, and brain fog are now all very minimal, and my energy level is up! I have NO joint or muscle pain since completing the program, which is amazing for a 61 year old. My health journey made a significant leap forward due to your program and I am very grateful.Linda M. Tucson, AZ
I am actually pretty healthy with just some mild symptoms, which I didn't even know came from my gut health. I knew about gut health and some of what was in the program, but this course was so thorough and full of great things I could do on a daily basis and keep doing, that to me it was worth every penny! I loved many of Christa's recipes and have been able to work up to many of them. It was a wonderful program!Patti B. Belleville, IL
Tony A. Los Angeles, CA
When my hair loss from alopecia rapidly got worse, I knew it was time to take action. Doctors told me it could take 2 years for my hair to grow back. After 4 weeks on the program, I was amazed at how quickly my bald patches were clearing up. After 8 weeks on Gut Thrive™, my hair was 100% back to normal!
WHY TRADITIONAL AND EVEN NATURAL
METHODS ARE FAILING US
HIPPOCRATES, THE FATHER OF NATURAL MEDICINE, KNEW 2500 YEARS AGO THAT "ALL DISEASE BEGINS IN THE GUT".
You see, traditional western medicine is limited in both the time they spend with patients and the tools they use to get them well. The overuse of antibiotics in medicine is one of the major contributors of our gut disease. Pharmaceuticals have saved many lives, but when they are used as a band-aid to mask symptoms, the underlying condition only gets worse. Instead we must identify and work from the root cause.
Even naturopathic practitioners sometimes use a band-aid approach by recommending botanicals to mask symptoms without addressing the root of this issue. This model is failing us rapidly and taking away our quality of life. Many doctors are trained to diagnose and manage “dis-ease” versus healing it. You need a second or even third opinion because...
YOU have the power to take back your health and your body has the ability to HEAL.
Are You Ready to Take the Steps Towards Optimal Gut Health?
GUT THRIVE IN 5™ IS YOUR ANSWER
STEP 1: THE DIET - SLASHING INFLAMMATION
STEP 2: THE PATHOGEN PURGE
STEP 3: THE RESEEDING AND HEALING OF THE GUT
STEP 4: THE HCL CHALLENGE AND TERRAFORMING
STEP 5: THE 80/20 MAINTENANCE
HERE IS OUR PROVEN STRATEGY FOR REJUVENATING YOUR GUT IN 10 WEEKS
STEP 1: THE DIET - SLASHING INFLAMMATION
Timeframe: Weeks 1 and 2
The foundation of gut healing is to stop putting things in your gut that don't agree with it. The first step is to stop adding fuel to the fire! We let food be one of our major tools to reduce inflammation. We do this by removing the most common food sensitivities and inflammation-producing foods and by adding in soothing, calming, and healing foods. Next, we send in key enzymes and the dietary cleaning crew to rid the body of built up and chronic inflammation hiding deep within the pockets of intestinal folds.
Our meal plans are customized and compatible for ALL manner of GI Issues including but not limited to:
- Candida/Fungal infections
- SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth)
- H. Pylori
- Worms, protozoa, and parasites
- Heavy metal toxicity
- Viral infections
You'll take a deep dive into truly using food as your medicine in Step One. This is also where we build up liver health, since the liver is the General of the body, it will need support for the journey ahead.
And since most people with digestive issues also experience adrenal and thyroid issues, we craft the meal plans to support both of these vital glands.
STEP 2: THE PATHOGEN PURGE
Timeframe: Weeks 3-6
The next step in the healing process is to eliminate pathogens from the gut—the natural way. Intestinal pathogens (parasites, protozoa, bad bacteria, yeast, fungus, viruses, heavy metals, worms) may have been wreaking havoc on your digestive system by disrupting the natural balance of things and causing the uncomfortable symptoms you experience every day.
Our cutting-edge approach uses the highest-quality, proven supplements to begin ridding the gut of these "bad guys.” The supplements are paired with other customized, strategic cleansing methods that assist your body’s detoxification process.
More importantly, this purge is done in a totally natural way—instead of "killing them" which could cause more damage in the aftermath (whether you do it the western way with antibiotics or the natural way with botanicals), we take away their communication method, make the environment uninviting for them to stay in, and take away their primary food source.
The past decade has seen the emergence of a new field in basic microbiology. Scientists had long held the view that bacterial cells behaved as self-sufficient individuals, unable to organize themselves into groups or communicate…but little did we know how smart they really are.
Just like no man is an island, we now know that similar to military alliances, bacteria and other pathogens function in groups, sending chemical signals to each other that allow them to form physical structures (like forts or bunkers) to protect themselves. These physical structures are called biofilms.
These biofilms protect them from the “fire” of pharmaceutical or even natural antibiotics so that they can remain intact.
This leaves our immune system in big trouble and can drive us deeper into GI function and lay a foundation for autoimmune disease. The bad guys who were protected in their biofilms were not killed by the antibiotic treatment while our good guys who haven’t yet learned to properly communicate and build biofilms were destroyed. This leaves our immune systems in big trouble and can drive us deeper into GI dysfunction and autoimmune disease.
This is exactly why we employ a different strategy to get the “bad guys” out. We dismantle their biofilms to take away their protection before we try to remove them from the body.
We do that through weakening their alliances through intercepting the way they send chemical signals to each other (like taking away their cell phones) to remove their “strength in numbers” advantage because now they can no longer communicate, or "quorum sense" to put it in scientific terms.
We gently dismantle their bunkers with hydrolytic enzymes (proteins that use water to break down chemical bonds) and other proven biofilm disrupters that don’t harm the human body (versus blowing up their bunkers which causes damage to our intestinal lining and our good bacteria, just like bombs destroy the earth’s terrain and kill innocent people). Once their communication is disrupted and their bunkers are dismantled, we escort them all out of the body in a civil manner with our cutting edge cleansing methods.
This escorting out of the body continues in Step 3, however the strategy shifts now to allow for greater efficacy.
Most people are aware that we have good bacteria (symbiotic) and bad bacteria (pathogenic), but we also have a neutral type of bacteria called commensal bacteria.
Commensals are like impressionable teenagers. They are neither good nor bad. They are malleable. It’s the influence exerted upon them that helps them develop their character as good or bad.
Since commensals have the ability to co-evolve with their host, we want to convert them to the good side.
Thus for those remaining pathogens left (we need some “bad” pathogens to stay in order to challenge and inform our immune system) that still pose a threat to our long-term health, we must use good bacteria as the military leaders who exert their positive influence on the commensals, turning them from neutral bacteria that are taking up space, to helpful bacteria that now contribute to the long-term health of the body.
Thus the reseeding phase in Step 3 brings in the peacekeepers in effort to establish both a new terrain (the equivalent to planting a garden) and a new order amongst “the people” (your digestive system).
STEP 3: THE RESEEDING AND HEALING OF THE GUT
Timeframe: Week 7 and 8
THIS IS PART 1 OF STEP 3: THE RESEEDING PROCESS
Now that we’ve had our respectful military coup and the poor leadership of pathogenic organisms have been removed from power (they can now stop confusing your body, causing your symptoms and “dis-ease,”) the new leadership of good bacteria with good intentions are brought in and peacekeeping efforts can begin!
It’s time to reeducate your entire immune system so that it can follow its original genetic blueprint of health. Through diet and supplements we give a carefully crafted mixture of 10-13 super star strains of good bacteria specific to your unique digestive issues and then let your body attract the other hundreds or thousands of strains native to your original genetic origin.
This step gives your body the information it needs to now attract hundreds or thousands of other beneficial strains of bacteria from the air you breath, the water you drink, the food you eat, and the environment you live in. These strains will be unique to YOU and your biochemical individuality.
Under the good leadership of your symbiotic bacteria, the commensals learn to behave in your best interest.
This step acts sort of like a starter log because we give you the good bacteria you need to “kick it off” and then once the fire has been started, we let your own brilliant immune system and the healing foods you are now eating take over from there.
What kinds of bacteria are responsible for our gut health?
Because it's truly open warfare in the microbiome, let's use military analogies to understand the role of certain probiotic strains here.
Lactobacillus (5-6 strains) - These guys are a transient group of bacteria. They are kind of like the Marines and are responsible for “the first assault.” Lactobacs consistently escort "bad guys" out of the body. They also breakdown the food you eat so that you can absorb more nutrition and manufacture the vitamins your body needs in order to keep you strong and healthy.
Bifidobacterium (2-4 strains) – Just like an Army Core of Engineers who are responsible for building roads and bridges, bifidobacs are a genus of good bacteria whose job is to colonize and stay, contributing lasting strength and self-sufficiency to the GI tract.
Bacillus - Much like Navy Seals or Army rangers are built to endure the most harsh environments and conditions, bacillus are the “Special Forces” arm of the good gut bacteria peacekeeping unit.
They can survive stomach acid and bile. They can live with or without air and even in the most volatile of conditions. You’ll want to enlist these fearless warriors on your side to exert their influence against the bad guys and to ensure the peacekeeping efforts of the other branches remain intact.
Now that we’ve dismantled the biofilms/bunkers of the bad guys in step two, and began reseeding/peacekeeping efforts in step three, we can now focus on teaching the good guys how to have rock solid communication so they form strong alliances and build positive biofilms which will keep you safe and protected with a healthy immune system for a long time to come.
THIS IS PART 2 OF STEP 3: THE HEALING OF THE GUT
Basically, the gut is a long hollow tube inside the body. It's meant to let the good things in (like nutrients from our food), but keep the bad things out (like toxins, feces, and undigested food particles). When you have leaky gut, these "bad things" (toxins, bacteria and undigested food) make their way into your body instead of being eliminated as waste as they would be in a person with a healthy gut.
These foreign particles really drag down your immune system, which is meant to stand guard and protect you, stationing 80 percent of its soldiers right inside the gut wall. This is called the Gut Associated Lymphoid Tissue (GALT). When leaky gut occurs, the immune system sets off a bunch of chain reactions including localized inflammation in the gut wall (rendering your GALT soldiers wounded and useless) and may cause system wide inflammation throughout the body. This is one of the worst things that happen with leaky gut, as inflammation is the first step toward any chronic disease.
The diagram below explains this further with a picture of a healthy intestinal lining to the left and an unhealthy one on the right. The foreign particles you see in the bloodstream in the picture on the right do not belong there and are responsible for whole body inflammation.
Whatever escapes through the gut wall goes directly to the brain, hence the focus on the gut-brain connection in this program. We also address the other way, which is the brain-gut connection. This is especially important for folks with something called SIBO or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth. Addressing the brain-gut connection helps prevent relapse in this case.
Even though the pathogens and pro-inflammatory foods have been gently removed, they've still left some damage in their wake, plus there was existing leaky gut from the lifestyle choices that stacked up over time.
Implementing this step is much like patching things up. Imagine the lining of your small intestine is a brick wall and some of the mortar is missing.
Because we want healing to be LASTING and CONTINUAL, it’s time to patch it. This is equivalent to rebuilding the good layers of the intestinal lining. Just like the patched wall, your gut, after step four, will better be able to provide the rest of your body with crucial and lasting protection from disease, food sensitivities, inflammation and more.
If it’s not patched, then you will eventually return to your inflamed stated where many foods cause upset because you didn’t complete the healing process.
Food sensitivities tend to drop off dramatically after this phase and you can begin to reintroduce foods that previously caused discomfort.
STEP 4: THE HCL EVALUATION AND TERRAFORMING
Timeframe: Weeks 9 and 10
You have these cells in your stomach called parietal cells. They are responsible for secreting hydrochloric acid. Hydrochloric acid is your best defense against allowing food-borne pathogens to enter your body in the future.
It's kind of like a good fence that keeps out the riff raff. If we can keep out bad guys like H. pylori, yeast, and other bad bacteria, we’ll be less likely to have to worry about things like ulcers or heart burn or stomach cancer in the future.
In Step Four, we evaluate how much stomach acid you are currently producing and help you customize a way to teach your body to produce enough stomach acid in the right amounts so that you are protected from re-infection and digesting well.
This is the stage where those with skin issues and acne really start to see things change for the better.
Parietal cells also secrete something called intrinsic factor that help you absorb Vitamin B12, making this the point in the program where your energy soars and mental fog is gone!
Our carefully crafted cocktail of supplements in Steps 1-4 have given your precious parietal cells a rest. Now that everybody else is back to doing their job and has learned to do it more efficiently and effectively, the parietal cells are motivated to come back to work and give it all they've got.
Also in step four, we begin terraforming.
Terraforming is a process that transforms the terrain so that it can support consistent and habitable life.
Think of it like gardening. You have done the pruning, you have tilled the soil, you have planted new seeds and now you have to tend to those new seeds over the next few months so that they can bear consistent and long-term fruit.
This is what cements in the resetting of the immune system and creates sustainable gut health. We do this using food-based probiotics and prebiotics (fibers that feed your good gut bacteria).
STEP 5: THE 80/20 MAINTENANCE
Timeframe: Week 10+ onward
Step Five teaches you how to maintain and build upon the health that you have achieved in the Gut Thrive in Five™ program.
The gut has begun to develop a sort of strong, adaptable ability to process food, bacteria, and almost anything in a completely different way so we expand the diet to be more full and varied in order to accomplish this mission.
While the terraforming process continues, your diet has been restricted and it’s time to add in new foods that once hurt you, but now can be supportive to you as well as a few of your favorite “treats” you’ve likely been missing.
The 80/20 rule means that it’s what you do 80% of the time that makes up your health. And hey, we’re human and have to have fun 20% of the time without having long-term consequences for this fun.
This is not our first rodeo!
You’re in good hands. We took an initial group of 2000 people from all around the world through the inaugural Gut Thrive in Five™ Program last winter.
It was an amazing, yet wild journey, and one we learned A LOT from!
When this group was surveyed after the program, here’s what we found:
- Lowered thyroid antibody levels (and some reversed)
- Improvements in skin conditions (eczema and psoriasis)
- Improved adrenal gland function
- Lowered blood glucose and hemoglobin A1C (HBAIC)
- Reduced body fat (3-7%)
- Improved metabolism and reversed diabetes
- 76.1% experienced digestive improvement
- 85% experienced only mild die-off – meaning you should be able to work and live your life throughout the program
- 12% improvement in LDL cholesterol levels (out of those that had before and after lab work)
- 87% from our first program completed our recommended Supplement Kits (this was a big reason for the high % of digestive improvement!)
We learned a lot of lessons with our SIBO group as they were in the majority of the 25.9% of folks who didn’t experience lasting digestive improvement.
Since our motto is “No Gut Thriver Left Behind”, we decided to run an all-inclusive 30-day clinical trial with that crowd to study the brain-gut connection to look for the neurological roots of the slow motility (constipation), brain fog, and bloating associated with SIBO relapse.
With the results of this trial, we now know more about how to support those with these issues by extending their pathogen purge, taking a different strategy with probiotics and fiber, stimulating the Vagus nerve appropriately, and routinely closing the ileocecal valve. This also includes how and when specific neurological supplements should be administered for the best results.
Because most people coming to us with gut infections from Candida to parasites and protozoa to H. pylori also experienced various stages of adrenal fatigue and thyroid disorders, we adjusted the program supplements and diet philosophy to support the adrenals, the thyroid, and the liver from the get-go while also adding in methylation support for those that have trouble with detoxification.
This means that YOU can feel stronger and have more energy as you go into the pathogen purge because you are addressing more than just the GI tract.
We are so grateful to our inaugural group. They are our pioneers, the original Gut Thrivers, and they have paved the way for greater healing for YOU. This philosophy and strategy is proven and if it can seep into the integrative health model, our collective health and happiness will tremendously improve as needless suffering will end by the tens of thousands by “doing it right” the first time.
We eagerly anticipate a 90% success rate with Gut Thrive™ 2.0 as a result of implementing what we’ve learned from the initial launch of this program. We hope to have the opportunity to help you become a success story.

10 WEEKS OF DETAILED MEAL PLANS/SHOPPING LISTS
In order to achieve maximum success with this program, you have to know what to eat and how to continually customize your diet for your ongoing healing process. If you don't have a plan, you'll slip into old habits or “think” you're doing all the right things without your body responding accordingly. Christa will cover all of that on the live webinars and enlighten you with food tips and tricks that would have never occurred to you, but that make your life easier and your plan workable.
Christa will teach you our 3-Stage Approach to healing with food in this program.
Spend 3-5 hours per week preparing your food so that you can have healthy, 10-minute anti-inflammatory meals all week long (side benefit: your family and friends will get healthier too!).
In the first stage, she focuses on foods that:
– Reduce whole body inflammation
– Balance blood sugar and hormones
– Support the thyroid and adrenal glands
In the second stage, she moves into eating foods that:
– Kill or challenge pathogens
– Boost immunity and mood
In the last stage, she incorporates foods that rebuild good gut flora and keep replenishing it as well as foods heal intestinal lining (leaky gut) and that help your body produce its own hydrochloric acid to keep the bad guys out.
