When it comes to my personal practice, one reason that I believe I have had such high success is because of accountability. When working one-on-one with clients, they tend to be much more accountable because they have to either look me in the eyes or tell me over a phone consultation that they haven’t been sticking with their personalized program for one excuse or another.
And the shear fact of being held accountable and not wanting to disappoint is enough to keep most of my clients on the straight and narrow.
But since creating my Leaky Gut Cure program and bringing it online to reach even more of those who suffer from Leaky Gut Syndrome, I’m now noticing two new categories of people that are coming out of the woodwork which are lacking in the accountability department.
I like to call them… Those who can’t be Indians and those who have too many Chiefs.
I’m beginning to believe that this is in large part due to the undervaluing of my Leaky Gut Cure program which comes along with the affordability factor. And while my goal was to make the most affordable option to reach and help 10,000 people, I’m beginning to see that not everyone places value on something that’s “affordable”.
So maybe this is a sign of future change and direction. Only the future will tell.
But hopefully you do not fall into either one of these categories and even if you do, hopefully this post will speak to you in one way or another.
So what does this have anything to do with Indians?by
I get a lot of questions from people about this and oftentimes people misunderstand what it is that I really do.
Oftentimes I get labeled as a Nutritionist which is true to an extent. My education is in food science and human nutrition and I have extensively studied holistic nutrition for more than 10 years. And yes, nutrition is a huge piece of the overall puzzle and without it you’re not going to get lasting results. So there’s definitely a huge advantage to my nutrition background.
But the way I practice involves much more than diet or nutrition alone. I practice Functional Medicine which looks beyond just food and works to determine the underlying cause(s) of your chronic symptoms.
What is Functional Medicine?
Functional medicine is an emerging field of medicine grounded in the functional application of basic sciences. Some have coined functional medicine as patient-centered medical healing at its best. Instead of looking at and treating health problems as isolated diseases, its focus is on treating individuals who may have bodily symptoms, imbalances and dysfunctions. Functional medicine seeks to identify and address the root causes of disease, and views the body as one integrated system, not a collection of independent organs divided up by medical specialties.
