Here are all the pages you need to make your GOOD GUT Challenge a success! Download what you want, view on your tablet or computer, or print out and make a book of them. However you feel this information will help get you through those 5 challenge days.
They’re categorized for easy reference. Download them all and use them on your tablet and computer. I would, however, suggest that you download and print out the Challenge Outline and 5 copies of the Daily Planner to use during the 5 days of challenge.
See you in the group the 27th …
GOOD GUT QUIZ
Take the quiz if you STILL wonder if you have a leaky gut. HINT … if you checked any of the boxes, you probably do!
The first two are information about what leaky gut causes and what Root Cause Medicine is all about. Both of them are important because I think the first learning point from this challenge might be that a healthy body works all together in perfect harmony.
But when the gut … which I consider the third most important organ … doesn’t work right it affects that entire body from head (ever heard of the gut-brain axis?) to toe (arthritis anyone?). So I’d DEFINITELY at least take a peek at them because this challenge is ALLL about that Root Cause Medicine mindset.
The third is THE MOST IMPORTANT THING you have to get you through these 5 days … your outline. It guides you through the daily requirements for food, mindfulness, reading, and planning. Eat it UP!
Traditional vs Root Cause Medicine
These two pages are for planning each of the 5 days. If you’d choose to plan somewhere else with a planning tool you’re familiar with … go for it!
These are challenge-specific though and mention all the daily suggested doin’s … from eating to reading to mind-ing. Just jot down what you will do (what article to read, which short mindfulness snippet to do, what specific food to eat, and your daily menu if desired (it’s easier to actually get it in your mouth if you DO plan it).
It might be helpful to plan the times you will do these things too to fit them into your day. Put your proposed time next to each activity on the planner or put it in whatever planner you use on a regular basis; phone alarms also wouldn’t hurt.
And doing the plan in pencil in pencil might be a good idea too as plans … and tastes … can change. So print out five of the daily planner and do it every day … and if you’re around at 7am for the talk we’ll all do it together!
FOOD CHANGE REFERENCES
Here’s the “meat” of your challenge as a great deal of it is food-related. You’re getting a list of fermented foods; pick a couple, go and buy them, and do around a fork (or spoon)-ful a day for a fermented veggie or fruit or a cultured product like yogurt. And up to a cup or more for a beverage like kombucha or kefir. Your choice.
Fruit and veggies … two and three respectively … and I don’t care if they’re organic or not at this stage. Amounts are listed on the “Daily Planner Instructions” above … so check those out.
Gluten Free items … I’ve shown many of the popular brands on the handout below … but look for a similar label to this on the package … or the words somewhere on it. Don’t worry … if it’s Gluten Free they’ll trumpet it to the Universe!
The other two are suggestions for fast-fixin’s and staples and easily-gettable kitchen aids (if you don’t have them already). They’re not absolutely essential but they DO make life easier.
Here’s some cool bonuses. And … guess what … I’m giving you my normally $47 laser-focused 30-minute talk to plot the next steps in your health journey … FREE! Just click the last bonus below below and sign up at a convenient time. I can hardly wait to guide you further down you health journey path!
