Create a Waitlist Practice

Help your clients heal their gut & immune system for good while creating a waitlist practice.

Make your practice functional with our gut and immune health training, tools, and resources so your clients and patients can heal from the root cause and you can create a referral-based waitlist practice.

We've taken over 7,000 Gut Thrivers through our GT5 program with a 95% success rate and now we want to teach you how to upgrade your practice with this cutting-edge work. Let's team up to change the way we do healthcare.

Gut Health has Reached Unprecedented Levels…

  • 65 million Americans are affected by digestive diseases, like gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
  • 22.4 million physician office visits annually have a disease of the digestive system as their primary diagnosis.
  • 8.3 million emergency room visits annually are due to disease of the digestive system.
  • Irritable bowel syndrome affects 6-18% of the population worldwide
  • 5.9% of adults have been diagnosed with ulcers

These patients need your help. And they are ready for it…

  • Within the last decade, the US digestive health market has nearly tripled in size and is predicted to reach $5.7B USD by 2024
  • 30% of consumers have tried food and drinks with probiotic benefits
  • 40% are willing to try things that will aid in their digestive health
  • 50% of consumers say they understand the importance of gut health in overall health and how it is related to numerous diseases such as diabetes, obesity or autoimmune disease, and anxiety and depression.

We need an army of practitioners like you to lead the way.

That's Why We Developed

The Gut Thrive Practitioner Training Program

The Gut Thrive Practitioner Training Program will teach you how to help others heal their gut and immune system by flipping their genetic code specific to their genetics, history, current symptoms and ailments, and future goals.
People are constantly struggling with these symptoms and issues:
  • Insomnia
  • Bloating & 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
  • Infertility
    • 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)
    • We’ll help you help others

      Eradicate These Symptoms…

      We’ll help you help others eradicate these symptoms even if they’ve struggled with them for years or decades.

      You will be able to pinpoint the root cause of their symptoms so that they can finally heal for good.

      There is no “one-size-fits-all” solution for gut and digestive health. That’s what makes our training program so unique. We’ll help you customize our process and protocols specifically for your clients and patients by starting with a full digestive health assessment to figure out the root cause of their imbalances. We spent two years running before and after lab work to develop this assessment to save you and your clients or patients the cost of running a food panel, a stool test for pathogens, an inflammation set point test, and a leaky gut test. This is especially important for health coaches and clinicians who do not have lab accounts and cannot run their own labs.

      Not only will you be able to effectively help your clients and patients heal their leaky gut but you’ll successfully guide them to rejuvenate their microbiome (their entire digestive and immune system) in a way where it self-regulates for a long time to come.

      You will become a world class expert in terrain theory which the world needs so badly right now.

      We’ll TRAIN YOU IN OUR

      Five-Step Gut Health Protocol

      We use these 5 Steps below but expand on each one tremendously in the practitioner training model so that you can customize each and every aspect to the person you’re working with for maximum positive impact on their life.

      STEP ONE:
      The Diet – Slashing Inflammation

      Remove the most common food sensitivities and inflammation-producing foods and add in soothing, calming, and healing foods. Learn how to administer food as your medicine in the most powerful way. You’ll learn customized Phase I and Phase II liver detoxification techniques as well as ways to cleanse and support the gallbladder and kidneys based upon your client or patient’s history in this step.

      STEP TWO:
      The Pathogen Purge

      Eliminate pathogens from the gut—the natural and gentle way. We don’t kill the pathogens the way traditional medicine does with antibiotics nor the way naturopathic medicine can with botanicals. We know people are more sensitive than ever. They have genetic mutations, chemical, environmental, and food sensitivities that make detoxing difficult. Their liver and kidneys are already overloaded. So we change the environment to make it inhospitable to the bad pathogens that live there while interrupting the way they communicate so that they can no longer communicate, and therefore share their genetic code and replicate. Then we clean up what’s left. Our cutting-edge approach uses high-quality customized supplements that employ this profound strategy and you as a practitioner will have exclusive rights to use and sell these supplements in your private practice.

      STEP THREE:
      The Reseeding & Healing Of The Gut

      You will learn to use probiotics in an entirely new way with a two-fold strategy tailored to the unique genetics of each and every client or patient so that their immune system will be able to follow its original genetic blueprint of health. Through diet and supplements, we’ll teach you a carefully crafted mixture of 10-13 superstar strains of good bacteria specific to unique digestive issues. In your case studies, you’ll then learn how to let your client or patient’s body attract the other hundreds or thousands of strains native to their original genetic origin.

      This step also teaches you how to give their body the information it needs to attract other beneficial strains of bacteria from the air they breathe, the water they drink, and the food they eat, as well as the environment in which they live.

      You’ll also be focusing on your client's vagus nerve in this step by re-engaging the brain’s role in autonomic function and opening up the gut-brain / brain-gut axis restoring its full capacity which alleviates long-term constipation as well as mood issues such as anxiety and depression.

      This is an oh-so-powerful and complete re-education of the entire immune system of which it will learn to replicate the new genetic code to the other microbiomes in the body including the skin, lungs, genitals, sinuses. This is why when you heal the gut this way, chronic yeast infections, lung infections, sinus infections, and skin issues like eczema and psoriasis also resolve.

      STEP FOUR:
      Optimize Hydrochloric Acid Production & Terraforming

      Here is where you’ll evaluate how much stomach acid your clients and patients are currently producing and train their body to routinely produce enough stomach acid to protect them from re-infection and keep them digesting well. This is highly customized to the individual and highly effective. This is the stage where those with skin issues and acne and rosacea start seeing rapid improvement. Parietal cells in the stomach secrete an intrinsic factor that helps with the absorption of Vitamin B12, making this the point in the program where your client and patient feels an enormous energy and metabolism surge and becomes free from brain fog.

      Also in Step 4, you’ll teach the now obscure yet soon to be burgeoning concept of terraforming. Terraforming is a process that transforms the terrain so that it can support consistent and habitable life.

      Think of it like gardening. You’ve helped your client or patient prune, you’ve tilled the soil, 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 carefully and customized food-based probiotics and prebiotics (fibers that feed good gut bacteria).

      STEP FIVE:
      The 80/20 Maintenance

      Your client or patient’s gut has now begun to develop a strong, adaptable ability to process food, bacteria, and almost anything in an entirely different way. So we must expand the diet to be more full and varied to accomplish this mission.

      While the terraforming process continues, their diet was restricted and now it’s time to add in new foods that they were once sensitive to or had trouble digesting, but now can be supportive to their health goals. They can also add in a few of their favorite “treats” they might have been missing.

      The 80/20 rule means that it’s what one does 80% of the time that makes up their health. And hey, we’re human and have to have fun 20% of the time without having long-term consequences.

      Learn to teach the 80/20 rule so that your clients and patients can take full pleasure in food and life without backtracking in their health process and goals.

      How Do We Train You?

      Once you enroll, you’ll get access to our Gut Thrive Practitioner Portal that contains over 60 hours of video education and over 200 pages of detailed written educational training content.

      You will watch and read the materials in each module, implement what you learn, and then meet LIVE with Christa, Jack, and Nicole to go over your case studies. The case studies can also include yourself if you are going to test the program out on yourself – which we highly recommend.

      In these live webinars with our clinical team, we’ll answer your questions to help you refine and customize the protocol to whomever you’re working with and you will learn tremendously – not only from us but also from your peers.

      We’ll meet with you consistently over the first three months of the program and help you with your case studies as well as your understanding and execution of the material and the refinement of your clinical acumen.

      You must submit three case studies to us for our review and are required to present your toughest, most interesting, or most successful case study live to us and 3 or 4 of your peers before the year is out in order to graduate and get your Gut Thrive Certification Program.

      Then, you will have the privilege of being listed as a Gut Thrive Practitioner and Referral Partner on our website.

      Business Development With Christa

      After several months of learning the clinical material, you will start going through the business development section of this program where Christa will teach you exactly how to practice from the intake session to completion of the program (12 sessions with your client will be already laid out for you including all materials and pricing).

      Christa will also teach you how to market and speak about this work in a compelling way.

      This is a true no-brainer for the ambitious, passionate clinician who wants to be on the front lines of the most powerful and effective gut health work available today.

      Meet Your Experts

      My name is Christa Orecchio. I have been a clinical and holistic nutritionist for the past 15 years. The gut microbiome work I will be teaching you how to administer in our upcoming practitioner training program provided me with a multi-six figure, 6-month referral-based, waitlist practice for 8 years.

      I then took this work online into a multi-seven figure business. The success is a result of how much people NEED this work and how incredibly effective it is. We need to focus on terrain theory vs. germ theory and help our clients and patients heal their inner terrain to safeguard their health and experience of life, and in a pandemic world, this has never been more relevant or important.

      I am also a four-time bestselling author, host of three health and wellness TV shows, and a businesswoman with a passion for creating positive change in health care so you will be in good hands as I will have your back to help you significantly grow your private practice.

      I could not be more pleased that our Gut Thrive in 5 Practitioner Training program is coming out on January 19, 2021.

      You will learn from me, my clinical partner Jack Tips, Ph.D., ND, who has been a leading microbiome researcher and specialist for over 35 years, as well as my lead Gut Thrive clinician who is board-certified by the National Association of Nutrition Professionals and a Certified Nutrition Specialist with 10 year’s experience, and our Whole Journey Gut Thrive clinician with a Master’s degree in Holistic Nutrition with 7 years experience.

      Jack Tips, Ph.D., CCN, C.Hom has dedicated his career to advancing the application of natural health practices and bringing to bear the latest research in his own clinic as well as passing on his vast knowledge to others.

      His teaching style has been honed to cut through the scientific chatter to the true essence of the latest natural health research. He has been a gut microbiome specialist for the last 30+ years, has had many thousands of private clients, and taught thousands of clinicians how to advance their practice.

      You’ll walk away from your interactions with Jack with valuable techniques you can immediately apply to your practice.

      Nicole Dube, MS, CDN, CNS is the lead clinician at The Whole Journey under Christa and has been a clinical nutritionist in private practice for 7 years.

      She is a state-licensed dietitian-nutritionist and double board-certified by the National Association of Nutrition Professionals and the American Nutrition Association.

      Her passion lies in the blend of science and spirituality, helping others balance their physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies for true healing to occur. She specializes in gut and autoimmune issues.

      This Is NOT For Everybody. Here’s Who Can Apply:

      This program is right for bright, passionate, ambitious clinicians who love to dig deep into root cause healing and are inspired by it.

      It’s right for those who want to 10x their clinical efficacy, impact, and salary.

      Gut Thrive in 5 Success Stories & Testimonials

      Over 7,000 people from all around the world have participated in Gut Thrive in 5™ over the years. Of those surveyed, 95% said the program was more effective at healing their leaky gut than working privately with a functional medicine practitioner.
      FEATURED GUT THRIVE

      Success Story

      Over the past 20 years, I have been diagnosed with multiple autoimmune diseases, including celiac, Crohn’s and Hashimoto’s. I’ve had multiple surgeries and have been to over 40 doctors. I’ve tried every possible pill, potion, and procedure and have studied thousands of hours searching for ways to heal my gut and autoimmune issues. This program brought great clarity, hope, and understanding of what I needed to do to heal my gut and my body.

      The biggest difference by far has been the reduction in abdominal pain, and the frequency of going to the restroom. When I started the program, I was in a flare and going to the restroom 15-20 times daily. Now I only go 1-3 times. My pH levels are much higher (and inflammation much lower) now. My brain seems to be working much better, and I feel much calmer.

      Mission #1 is fix the microbiome. The science is mind blowing. The program gives you a great sense of control and true hope for real healing. I have said many times to my friends and family, “these people are my people.” This program is not fluff. It is foundational and has the power to redirect your health IF you put in the work and are determined to better your life.

      The program quite literally could sell for 5 times what we paid, and it would be worth it. I have easily spent $100,000 over the past 20 years trying to regain my health.

      Gut Thrive is a small investment. What I learned and applied in this program dwarfs everything else I have ever learned! It's new cutting edge stuff that I’m convinced is going to change the trajectory of health care. The Gut Thrive team is responsive, thorough and caring.

      And lastly, Christa who created this program is a gift from heaven. I have never experienced a more genuine, caring person. Her grasp of this information and how to implement it into our lives was so confirming to me that I had absolutely made the right choice.

      If you have not felt well for a while, and have tried many things in the past with moderate to little success, I urge you to try Gut Thrive. You have to put in the work, but I promise you, what you will learn has the potential to change your life forever!

      -Dean H. Gainesville, GA

      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!

      Tony A.

      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

      I have been searching for you all for many years. You were an answer to a prayer for me! I’ve taken other on-line programs but your program addresses all facets of healing the gut. I also love the way you talk to “Gut Thrivers” as you are so special in your communication.

      LaZelle B

      I thought this program was superior to working with a private practitioner because we benefited from the thousands of questions that other participants are asking as we go through it and that have gone through it before. I loved the information on the supplements as to why and what we were taking and how they work within the program.

      I lost 30 lbs in inflammation weight on the pathogen purge and I have been weight loss resistant for 20 years. The supplement formulas worked gently and effectively to release cellular inflammation.

      Babs O

      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

      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

      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!

      FAQS

      What time will the live sessions be held?

      The live sessions are Mondays at 2:30 pm PST, with the exception of the first session which is Tuesday January 19, 2021 at 10:00 am PST. Monday session dates are as follows: Jan. 25, Feb 1, Feb 8, Feb 15, Feb 22, Mar 1, Mar 8, Mar 15, Mar 22, Mar 29, Apr 12, Apr 19, May 3.

      Will my case studies have to pay for your supplements upfront?

      Yes, your case studies must purchase the Gut Thrive supplements upfront either at full price through our public store (Supplements | The Whole Journey) OR you may purchase the supplements for them at your practitioner discount, which is 20%. Going forward, you will be able to order supplements for your clients and patients from us three times per year at a 20% discount and mark them up 25% which is the full retail cost.

      Will I have to pay for supplements on top of the certification program cost if I use myself as a case study, as you suggest?

      Yes, if you choose to do the program yourself as one of your case studies, the supplements are an additional cost with a 20% practitioner discount. We highly recommend that you do so as It is crucial that you understand how the program works within your own body. This will make you a much more effective practitioner when you explain each supplement to your clients and patients in the future.

      Do we have to buy specific supplements from your brands or can we use our own supplements when administering the Gut Thrive Program?

      You must use the exact supplements that we use in our Gut Thrive program otherwise the strategy and protocols cannot be properly implemented. As mentioned above, you will be able to purchase the supplements from us at a practitioner discount of 20% and mark them up 25% to resell them which is full retail.

      Can we brand the program handouts and materials as our own or are they required to have the TWJ Gut Thrive in 5 name on them?

      The program handouts must stay branded as Gut Thrive in 5 and are not allowed to be rebranded, as you are receiving a Gut Thrive Practitioner Certification. Thus, legally the brand must remain consistent.

      Are there any other costs involved? Will extra coaching be required?

      ​Those are the only costs involved. To be clear, your 1-1 coaching will come (1) via email when you submit difficult tickets; (2) on the live webinars with our entire group via the group chat and potentially pulling you up on video; (3) when Christa, Dr. Jack, and Nicole review the 3 case studies you submit during the year; and (4) when you are assigned to a live case study session with either Dr. Jack or Nicole during the year where you'll be on camera presenting your third and most prominent case study to Dr. Jack or Nicole with 3 other peers watching. Regarding the business coaching aspect, there is no 1-1 involvement, in that Christa will be grouping practitioners into similar levels of business and coaching experience. A few of the live sessions will include all participants as Christa teaches you how to do a webinar, how to price the program, how to speak about the work, and what to do in your sessions from intake to completion.

      When you say "Then, you will have the privilege of being listed as a Gut Thrive Practitioner and Referral Partner on our website.” Will this privilege to be in your directory of practitioners cost $499 each year after this first year of completing the certificate?

      Once you have proved your competence in the program with your completed and approved case studies, you will get a Gut Thrive Practitioner Certification. Your initial purchase includes one year of being hosted on our website as a Gut Thrive Practitioner. After that, to continue to be listed on our website, you will be required to pay the annual subscription of $499/year, complete our quarterly webinars, and read the new research papers to make sure to keep your skills fresh and effective. During that year, we will also email our certified practitioner’s details to our email list and will post a link to this on our social media accounts. If customers write in to us wanting to work privately, and are looking for a practitioner in your area, we will refer them to you.

      I've had a website for over 10 years, and I have most definitely applied myself. However, traffic is difficult to maintain and I'm not clear on how you’ll help me get more clients?

      Although referrals could potentially come from us, we will not “get clients for you” nor guarantee clients, but rather teach you how to speak about, administer, and market this work as well as put you on our website as a Certified Gut Thrive Practitioner if TWJ web visitors or customers are looking to work one-on-one in your area.

      In the business development portion of the program, Christa will guide you and offer insight on how to get out and speak about this work; how to make alliances with other like-minded clinics, yoga studios, and spas; and how to do live social media events and webinars discussing the work.

      Are you saying that the traffic generated from your site alone and being on your practitioner list will bring me clients to grow my business in my first year? I get no clients from my website.

      No, please read above. We cannot offer any guarantees of sending you clients or patients, only that we will list you on our platforms including our website, provide 1-2 social media posts about working privately with our certified practitioners, and send out an email to our email list for those who want to work privately versus doing a group online program (which we offer).  Those potential clients or patients will either contact you on their own volition or not. You will have to proactively make alliances and get yourself out there in front of people talking about this work. Christa will guide you on how to do that.

      If it costs around one client $2795 US to work with me, wouldn't I just send them to do your online course instead - which is cheaper than seeing me?

      This is for clients and patients who do not want to work in an online or group capacity, but rather prefer to meet with someone and have the accountability and customization that comes from having a 1-1 live relationship with a clinician, which we do not offer.
