The Whole Journey Philosophy

We are big believers that many are suffering unnecessarily and that if we bypass addressing individual symptoms in favor of looking at the body as one whole, systemic organism where all organs and glands are in concert with each other, the body will heal itself more effectively.

If you have a rock in your shoe, wouldn’t you agree that it’s better to take off your shoe and remove the rock versus taking ibuprofen to mask the discomfort?

We believe every individual has distinct dietary needs based upon genetics, lifestyle, gender, age, blood type, stress levels, how they ate as a child, current state of health and future health goals.

While many nutritional philosophies dwell on calories, carbs, fats, proteins, and restrictive “good and bad” foods, The Whole Journey philosophy provides our community

with the tools to create a happier, healthier life in a way that fun, flexible, and free of willpower and denial.

We also focus on primary food elements that nourish you including honest, open relationships, movement you enjoy, a meaningful spiritual practice, a creative outlet that inspires you, and an understanding that there can be emotional roots to physical illness.

By creating a balance between the clinical aspects of health, primary foods and the foods you eat everyday; you’ll experience steady changes in your health and well being that you’ll be able to maintain for life.

The Whole Journey Methodology

Our goal is sustainable health and life transformation. Customers who complete TWJ programs are health-empowered. They have the knowledge and tools to take full accountability and responsibility for their health for the rest of their lives, and know how to course-correct if or when symptoms reappear.

This program brought great clarity, hope and understanding of what I needed to do to heal my gut. My brain seems to be working much better, and I feel much calmer. This program is not fluff. It is foundational and has the power to redirect your health. The program quite literally could sell for 5 times what we paid, and it would be worth it. I have easily spent $100k over the past 20 years trying to regain my health. Gut Thrive is new cutting edge stuff that I’m convinced is going to change the trajectory of health care.

– Dean, Gut Thrive in 5

I have severely suffered with Candida for 15+ years. I have done the anti-candida diet & the anti-fungal diet for 6 months each. Then I did the GAPS diet for 2 years, while taking herbal anti-fungals. I faithfully followed those diets, desperate for healing. I can't begin to explain all that I have done/tried to heal the Candida. I decided to give your program a try. For the first time in 30 years, I’m finally healed from Candida after a mere 6 weeks. I have never experienced this amount of healing ever!

– Crystal, Kick Candida for Good

“Within a week I had energy. I started sleeping, deeply. I learned how to eat for the rest of my life so my body would be in balance. My body started burning some fat instead of storing it. But not only did this process help me with nutrition, it helped me with life skills, growth and taught me how to put myself first when I need to. This has been one of the best things I’ve done for myself, my life, my relationship. It is worth soooo much more than the cost.”

– Tessa, The Adrenal ReCode
