4 Life Lessons From Summiting the Tallest Mountain in Mexico (Pico De Orizaba)

To be honest, I never had a desire to climb an 18,491 ft mountain. To be frank, just the thought of it scared the shit out of me… which is exactly why I decided to do it!

I realized that over the years I’ve become a bit addicted to comfort. Maybe you are too? Hear me out. I don’t think there is anything wrong with being comfortable. However, too much comfort often leads to stagnation… in mind, body and spirit. 

True growth happens just outside our comfort zones. It’s uncomfortable…it’s painful and it’s necessary. I’ve found that when you are present, life has a way of giving you exactly what you need to expand and grow. 

In my case, life gave me an opportunity to summit Pico De Orizaba, an 18,491 foot dormant volcano a few hours outside of Mexico City.  I learned many things along the way to the top. Here are a few of my many insights.

Lesson #1: One Step at a Time… One Breath at a Time!

Summiting a mountain is no easy feat. It takes planning, preparation, determination, grit and trust. It also takes an extreme amount of focus. The higher in elevation you get, the more focus it takes. Each step becomes a victory. Each step becomes a personal record. Each step moves you closer to your goal to get to the top.

I found that when I looked ahead at how much further I had to go, I lost energy and momentum. But when I focused on just the next step and just the next breath, I gained energy and momentum. My body…my heart…my legs…my breathing…my mind… became in sync. A natural rhythm took place which allowed me to move forward past the discomfort. 

In life we often don’t celebrate the small steps toward our goals, which is a shame. We get caught up always looking ahead to the end goal and don’t integrate and celebrate all it takes to get there along the way. The mountain taught me to celebrate each step and be present to each breath.

Lesson #2: Make It Fun!

The second lesson the mountain taught me was to have fun along the way (especially when you’re uncomfortable). This lesson came in the form of sliding down the glacier face using our ice picks and crampons as breaks. Not only did this save us time and energy, it made the adventure so much more fun.

I realized that over the years building my health and performance coaching practice, I’ve become a bit too serious. Somewhere along the way, I started taking myself and what I do too seriously. Yes, there is a time and place to be serious, but if you’re not infusing fun into what you do… you’re missing out and you won’t tap into your true potential.

Lesson #3: You are stronger than you think!

The third lesson the mountain taught me was that I am much stronger than I thought and so are you!

Much of summiting a mountain is a mental game. Just like running a marathon, you can be physically exhausted and your body telling you to stop, and still finish the race… in fact, 99% of people do.

David Goggins, a Navy Seal, shares about the Navy Seals 40% rule, which means when you think your done and have reached your limit, you’re actually only 40% done. I found this to be true on the way to the top of Pico De Orizaba.

At 18,000 ft. Every part of me wanted to throw in the towel and turn around. I was cold, I was tired and I couldn’t get my footing. Every step I took I slipped and my heart rate shot up because of the altitude. But with a little help from one of my amazing teammates, I was able to refocus and keep going and I’m glad I did because the view from the top was breathtaking (literally and figuratively).

Lesson #4: Choose Your Team Wisely

You’ve probably heard the saying, “You are the sum of the five people you spend the most time with.” Just like in life, you want to be really careful who you decide to summit a mountain with. Because just like in life, when you are climbing a mountain there are many ups and downs.

Things go wrong… bad weather, faulty equipment, and altitude sickness are all high possibilities. Having a team who has your back no matter what is essential. Surrounding yourself with those who are committed, decisive and resourceful greatly enhances your chances of success in life and when summiting a mountain.

Summiting a mountain and moving gracefully through life are both great challenges. On any mountain, like in life, there are many routes to take… some clear… others not so clear… some harder… others easier. In the end, what matters most is continuing to move forward while enjoying the journey.

I hope this post has inspired you to take a chance, make a change or live more passionately on purpose! Hope to see you at the top!

What’s it REALLY costing you?

When asked what surprised him most about humanity, the Dalai Lama replied:

“Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”

Is this your current reality?

Are you living in-ease or on your way to dis-ease?

Do you…

Feel constantly stressed, physically drained and can’t seem to stop thinking about your work even when you’re not working?

Have trouble getting or staying asleep and it’s a battle to get up in the morning?

Often have low energy in the afternoon and rely on coffee or stimulants to get you through the day?

Have difficulty focusing on one thing at a time and get easily distracted during the day especially by email?

Yes?

I’m going to be blunt here because I care…

You are living in dis-ease and will eventually get a disease and that’s simply the truth.

I want you to think for a moment what’s it REALLY costing you right now to NOT start taking better care of yourself?

In your level of productivity…

In your relationships with your husband/wife…kids…are you a proud example of how you want them to show up?

In your level of confidence and joy?

You don’t have to sacrifice your health in order to make money. Then sacrifice money to recuperate your health. That’s a BS (belief system) myth.

You don’t have to wait until it’s so painful that you can’t take it anymore or you get sick…

Is the life you’re leading worth the price you’re paying to live it?

There is a better way. I can show you.

Health & Mindset Mastery

Health & Mindset Mastery is a ultra-premium world-class health, lifestyle and high performance training program for entrepreneurs, business owners, self-employed professionals, and high-performing individuals.

Before you apply to be a part of Health & Mindset Mastery, I’ll answer some basic questions for you:

What is Health & Mindset Mastery?

It’s a 3 month (12 week) TOTAL TRANSFORMATION step-by-step group coaching program. Through the cutting edge training you follow weekly, you’ll discover and experience a breakthrough in your energy, confidence, productivity, weight, mental clarity, stress, sleep, and emotional health…

AND you’ll learn a completely new mental framework for how you tackle and deal with life biggest challenges.

Hint: The biggest roadblock is NOT the physical, it’s your internal belief system or what I call “mindset.” 

In addition, we have weekly live coaching sessions where we cover the following topics:

Mindset Mastery – Finally breakthrough what has been holding you back from reaching your next level of health and performance. You’ll discover how to condition your mindset for success. Without the proper mindset for you just fail. Period. (This piece alone is worth the investment in the program)

Stress Mastery – We go WAY beyond just “managing stress” in this program. Making sure you’re identifying the root cause of your stress is the KEY to success. And we don’t just manage stress for the sake of a “stress relief”. You’ll know exactly WHY you’re doing what you’re doing and HOW it connects to the bigger picture of what you’re trying to accomplish.

Nutrition Mastery – Eating the “right” foods at the “right times” can be a REAL challenge if you don’t know…. the what, the why and how of 21st-century nutrition. During the program, you’ll uncover what foods to eat specifically to maximize your energy and health through advanced microbiome genetic testing.

Movement Mastery – We take learning your body to whole another level. We go far beyond just the what. We all know we need to move more. In the program, we focus on the how and you’ll create what I call a personal movement plan (PMP) tailored to your unique lifestyle, goals, and preferences… they don’t teach this stuff in a classroom, a textbook or (even medical school.)

Advanced Training – Because many of the participants in the program achieve their goals within the first month and a half (this obviously varies depending on your current situation), we coach past the surface level strategies, tactics, routines, and rituals and we discuss in detail how to go WAY beyond what you believe is possible in your physical, mental, and emotional energy.

When you know the “why” and the “how” and get the support and accountability you need…you get results. 

What is the investment in this program?

There’s a couple of things you need to know about “price”. I DO NOT give it out ahead of time. Before we even talk investment, I determine if you’re actually a great fit for the program AND the community. 

If we’re still good, I’ll tell you all the details of the program (the above is just the surface) and then we’ll talk investment (And yes, we can be pretty flexible with payment plans for those who are a fit for the program).

And no, do not email me asking for the price. That’s not the way I do it. If that doesn’t work for you, you’re not a good fit and shouldn’t apply.

But here’s what you need to know for now:

The investment into the program is going up every other month since its inception. The longer you wait the larger the investment will be. And the next price increase is happening VERY SOON.

Transformation isn’t cheap. If you’re thinking this program is in the hundreds, think about this… hiring a qualified personal trainer just for a couple months (I know I used to be one) will cost you $3000-4000 easy. This program is on an entirely new level, not just on the training itself or the structure of it, but on the content, support, and most of all the coaching.

It’s world-class. And I’m not saying that from a place of ego, I’m saying it from a place of truth and results (see the video testimonial from a recent past client here)

You don’t show up to the Bentley dealership expecting to get a new Bentley for $20,000. It’s just not happening.

If you want to know what I could charge for this program, go find the very top trainer, nutritionist, psychologist and performance coach in your area and find out what it would cost you to work with them all several times a week for 3 months (In South Florida, where I live, that’s easy $15,000 – $30,000+) 

What kind of results can I expect to get from this program?

Over the phone, I’ll tell you exactly how high this program will take you. 

But typically it’s this:

  • Driving your business/career forward while enjoying the process feeling fully present in the moment…
  • Feeling charged, confident and on the top of your game, accessing the best part of who you are… organized, mentally clear, centered, grounded and focused…
  • You’ll know how to set clear boundaries between your life and business and have a clear vision for not only your business success but for your life fulfillment.
  • You’ll more control over your schedule to spend more time with the people you love… doing the things you love…AND greatly improved your relationships.
  • You’ll wake up feeling energized, refreshed, excited and READY to take on the day after a deep restful nights sleep even if sleep has been a struggle for years.
  • You’ll feel more physically strong, mentally focused and emotionally connected than you ever have and be able to handle your businesses and life’s biggest challenges with greater ease… within the first few weeks.

This is just some of the results and feedback I’ve gotten from current and past clients…


I’ll be able to tell you exactly where you’ll go over the phone after I know with 100% certainty what you are dealing with.

Sound good?

So, If you think you’re a fit, you’re an extraordinary person and you want to be part of an extraordinary group of high performers experience how good their bodies and minds are designed to feel, schedule a call to speak with me AND fill out the application and we’ll get started:

Click to Apply for a Breakthrough Call 


Ps. I reserve the right to refuse service to anyone, for any reason. And unfortunately, I don’t accept about 30% of people who apply for this program. As I said, you need to be a FIT not just for the training itself, but for the community. If I sense you’re not a good fit, I won’t even offer you the opportunity to enroll. No hard feelings.

PPs. I offer a one-time-only fast action discount over the phone for participants who are committed and ready to rock NOW. I make it easy for people who are willing to be decisive. Do your thinking, do your talking with your spouse or partner, do your finances ahead of time.

One other very important thing: If you schedule a phone call with me and decide you no longer want to do it, please take the time to cancel it. You’re not only taking up my time but you’re taking the time slot from someone else who could really use it. If you don’t cancel your scheduled call and don’t show up for whatever reason, you lose one-time fast action discount, sorry.

The #1 Drain to Energy & How to Reverse it

stress is the #1 drain to our life energy and actually the #1 root of all disease.

The “stress response” gland is your adrenal gland. This gland relies on micronutrients to produce stress hormones.

Stress depletes the following micronutrients, which are related to specific symptoms:

1. Stress depletes Vitamin C, which is linked to fatigue, joint pain, muscle fatigue and low immunity.

2. Stress depletes Vitamin E, which is linked to hormone imbalances, mood swings, low immunity and eye-sight degradation.

3. Stress depletes Calcium, which is linked to nervous irritability (anxiety), muscle spasms and twitching, bone loss issues (osteoporosis and osteopenia), cavities, depression and hypertension.

4. Stress depletes Magnesium, which is linked to arrhythmias, dizziness, muscle twitching, hyperirritability, tiredness, depression and hypertension.

5. Stress depletes Chromium, which is linked to blood sugar issues, metabolic syndrome, fatigue and brain fog.

6. Stress depletes Zinc, which is linked to low energy, dermatitis, ance, decreased immunity, alopecia, digestive issues, white spots on fingernails, infertility.

7. Stress depletes Glutathione, which is linked to high cholesterol, plaque formation, high blood pressure, rapid aging, immunosuppression, increased inflammation and pain.

The deficiencies of these micronutrients put you at greater risk of developing heart disease, cancer, diabetes, stroke, and neurodegenerative disease (such as Alzheimer’s).

7 Amazing Benefits Of Infrared Sauna Therapy

Sauna therapy in some form or another has been used for centuries for it’s many amazing health benefits. Native Americans conducted sweat lodges for spiritual and physical cleansing and the Egyptians use it to treat tumors. But now more than ever sauna therapy is necessary to experience how good you body and mind are designed to feel because of the toxic world we live in.

Detoxification is unfortunately no longer an optional health strategy if you want to experience incredible health.

Toxins come from the food we eat, air we breathe, water we drink, skin products use and our environments. Toxins are impossible to avoid and they are responsible for upwards to 80% of cancer deaths.

We are exposed to six million pounds of mercury (linked to hypothyroidism, immune systems, digestive problems learning disabilities, autism, ADHD) and more than two billion pounds of other toxins each year – one reason cancer statistics are skyrocketing.  

The Environmental working group reports that the average newborn baby has 287 known toxins in his or her umbilical cord. It’s scary!

1) Detoxification

The first amazing benefit of infrared sauna therapy is detoxification.  Sweating is one of our bodies most natural and effective ways to eliminate stored toxins.

The skin is a major detox organ, and sweating through skin is a critical human detox function, yet most people don’t sweat enough. Because of this, we miss out on a major source of toxin elimination: the skin.

To combat these effects, an infrared sauna helps to purify the body from the inside out, eliminating metals and toxins that are stored in fat cells, which can be release upon exposure to heat.

Infrared saunas help your body release toxins, including heavy metals like mercury and lead, and environmental chemicals. When compared to traditional Swedish saunas, infrared saunas allow you to eliminate about seven times more toxins.

2) Relaxation

The second amazing benefit of infrared sauna therapy is it promotes relaxation by helping to balance your body’s stress hormones. The heat generated by the sauna helps to relax muscles and relieve tension throughout the body, allowing you to relax and de-stress.

Researchers have found that a sauna can help provide a deeper, more relaxed sleep, relief of chronic tension, and relief of chronic fatigue issues, most likely due to a release of endorphins (feel good hormones) from the sauna. As endorphins are released into your body, they create a soothing, tranquilizing effect that can help with relaxation and sleep.

3) Pain Relief

The third amazing benefit of infrared sauna therapy is pain relief.  If you suffer from muscle aches or joint pain, infrared saunas can help ease muscle and joint pain by increasing circulation and decreasing inflammation.

In The Annals of Clinical Research Volume 20, research results show the benefits of sauna for relief of pain. Pain relief induced by a sauna was attributed to an increase in the release of anti-inflammatory compounds. More than 50% of participants reported relief of pain in the study.

4) Weight Loss

The fourth amazing benefit of infrared sauna therapy is weight loss. The heat generated by an infrared sauna causes your core body temperature to rise, which leads to an increased heart rate — the same increase in heart rate that you experience when exercising.

When your body has to work harder to lower your core temperature or keep up with an increased heart rate, your body begins to burn more calories, resulting in weight loss.

An article, titled Effect of Sweating, in the Journal of the American Medical Association concluded that a 30-minute infrared sauna session could burn roughly 600 calories!!

5) Longevity

The fifth amazing benefit of infrared sauna therapy is increased longevity and heart health. A study found in Journal JAMA Internal Medicine showed that regularly spending time in a sauna may help keep the heart healthy and extend life.

Researchers from Finland tracked 2,300 men for an average of 20 years. They found that the more sessions per week men spent in the sauna, the lower their risk of sudden cardiac death and fatal coronary heart disease.

The sauna also extended the life of participants with other illnesses, including cancer. The study found that fatal cardiovascular disease was 27% lower for men who used the sauna 2 to 3 times a week and 50% lower for men who used the sauna 4 to 7 times a week compared with men who just used the sauna once per week. Moreover, they found that using the sauna 2­-3 times per week was associated with 24% lower all­ cause mortality and 4­-7 times per week 40%.

6) Skin Radiance

The sixth amazing benefit of infrared sauna therapy is skin radiance. When your body produces sweat via the deep sweating you experience in an infrared sauna, the rate at which dead skin cells are replaced can be increased.

At the same time, heavy sweating helps to remove bacteria out of the epidermal layer of the skin and the sweat ducts. This pore cleansing also causes increased capillary circulation, which can give the skin a softer-looking, younger appearance.

When you sweat, the movement of fluid to the skin delivers mineral-rich nutrients and also helps to fill spaces around the cells, increasing firmness and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. So by continually flushing waste through skin cells via the use of sauna therapy, you increase skin health, tone and color, and cleanse the pores.

7) Immune System Boost

The seventh amazing benefit of infrared sauna therapy is it can boost your immune system.The Journal of Human Kinetics investigated the effect of sauna on the immune system, specifically white blood cell profile, cortisol levels and selected physiological indices in athletes and non-athletes.

After the sauna session, an increased number of white blood cells, lymphocyte, neutrophil and basophil counts was reported in the white blood cell profile, showing that sauna use stimulates the immune system.

German medical research also shows that saunas are able to significantly reduce the incidences of colds and influenza and Dr. Nobuhiro Yoshimizu, M.D. author of “The Fourth Treatment for Medical Refugees” found that just a 2% increase in body temperature results in a 40% increase in immunity.

How Do Infrared Saunas Work?

So you may still be wondering how infrared saunas work…infrared saunas raise our body temperature and put our bodies in a state of hyperthermia. Essentially, they create an artificial fever which has tremendous healing benefits as you now know.

Infrared saunas produce 3 different type of heat waves – near, middle and far infrared heat waves that penetrate into the body and induce sweating. It has been found that near-infrared levels are best for wound healing and increased immune function. Middle-infrared levels are ideal for increasing circulation and promoting muscle relaxation and far-infrared levels are used primarily for detoxification. It’s best to purchase a sauna that has all three.

There are 2 phases of sauna therapy:

Phase 1:

  • Sweating begins and is very light
  • Inhibits the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight – stress response)
  • Improves oxygenation
  • Relaxes the muscles

Phase 2: This is where the magic happens

  • Starts 10-30 minutes into a session
  • Body temperature rises rapidly
  • Blood circulation increases
  • Heart rate and sweating increase
  • Weaker cells die – cancer cells, bacteria, fungi, parasites, cells infected with viruses
  • The immune system is activated
  • Increases alkalinity of the body

As we sit in the infrared sauna, the blood vessels open, muscles relax, pain starts to subside and the body starts to actively heal. Our modern life, with all its demands with technology and sensory input, keeps us in a constant state of “fight or flight.” We were never designed to stay in this place all the time, but rather only for shorter periods to help us get out of bad situations. Chronic “fight or flight” can keep us feeling chronically tired, anxious or sick.

The sauna I recommend…

There are many different sauna companies out there. The company I recommend and I believe is the gold standard is Clearlight Sauna. Clearlight Saunas were designed by a doctor, not simply endorsed by a doctor and are used at the most prestigious holistic healing centers in the world including Hippocrates Institute.

They are the leader in the sauna industry because they are the only company that has True Wave™ full spectrum infrared heaters with the highest output of near infrared, mid infrared and far infrared available, patent pending virtually EMF free infrared heating technology and just as important as eliminating EMF, Clearlight is the only infrared sauna company in the industry that shields against ELF (extremely low frequencies.)

Their saunas are made with 100% eco-certified sustainably harvested Canadian Cedar Wood or North American Basswood and come with a complete limited lifetime warranty on the entire sauna and all its components for the lifetime of the original owner. They come in a variety of sizes, shapes and budgets.

How to Stop Being TIRED All the Time

How to Stop Being TIRED All the Time

Three of the most powerful energy increasing principles to skyrocket your energy:

1) Optimize your nutrition. We literally are what we eat, and are able to digest. It’s so important that you’re eating a plant-based, whole foods diet and avoiding the four foods that rob your energy. What are the four foods? Gluten, dairy, sugar, and caffeine. You could be eating all the healthiest foods, but if you’re still including a lot of those foods in your diet, your energy is gonna suffer.

First, cut back or cut out the four energy draining foods and instead start including more plant-based, alkaline foods. What does that mean? Well, it means fruits and vegetables, it means whole grains, nuts, seeds, and beans. It means food that was once alive.

The number one energy food, which also happens to be the number food that’s missing from most people’s diets, is greens. Green food is loaded with chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is kinda like the blood of a plant and it’s amazing for our blood, it helps support our red blood cells which carry oxygen, which give us energy.

You want to start incorporating more greens into your diet. How you do that? Eat a salad, eat a massive salad every day, either for lunch or for dinner. This is a super simple strategy and there are a million different ways that you can jazz it up and make it fun…from salad dressings to toppings but the key is to keep it simple. Also, commit to incorporating a green smoothie or a green juice in your diet.

Smoothies are a lot easier to kinda put together. All you need is a blender, some fresh fruits and vegetables, throw all that in there, super simple, super easy. Now, juicing does take a little bit of time, but now, most stores carry fresh cold-pressed juice, green juice. You want to go for the green juice because the fruit juice is loaded with sugar which can harm our energy.

2) Optimize your digestion. Yes, you can be eating all the most amazing, alkaline, plant-based, healthy organic food, but if your body’s not able to absorb and assimilate the nutrients, you’re not gonna be getting optimal energy. So pretty much, you’re eating all this good stuff, but if your digestion is compromised, your body’s not gonna know what to do with all that nutrition. To optimize your digestion start by eating mindfully. Mindful eating is such a powerful practice and it’s so simple. Mindful eating is slowing down and really being present with your food, taking one bite at a time and really chewing your food, instead of inhaling it.

Also, consider supplementing with digestive enzymes. Enzymes are just catalysts that help break down our food. Supplementing with a high-quality enzyme formula supplement can do wonders for digestion. Also, supplementing with a high-quality probiotic can also help with digestion.

3) Master your stress. Stress is the number one drain to our energy and it’s pretty much impossible to avoid. So, you have to learn, not just to manage your stress, but to master your stress. There’s a lot of amazing tools in order to do that. Most of the stress that we experience today is, chronic, unmanaged, mental emotional stress.

We’re not getting chased by tigers, our life generally isn’t being threatened. So, it’s this chronic mental stress that we need to learn to deal with. Have to get a handle on stress by implementing some simple practices and in many of my other videos I talk about this, but meditation.

Meditation can be as simple as just taking five deep breaths just to relax yourself and reset yourself, it’s so powerful. Transition meditations in between activities are also a great practice. Let’s say you’re picking the kids up from school and then you’re coming home and you have to get to work in between that, that’s a little bit of a transition. High performance studies show that a lot of energy is lost in that transition, so taking a moment to reset yourself by simply taking five deep breaths to center yourself. This will really have a massive impact on the level of energy you have…try it.

The number one reason that people have trouble sleeping, which massively impacts our energy and our recovery, is stress. So there are some simple practices and simple things that you could implement into your bedtime routine that would really help you get to sleep a lot quicker and help you stay asleep. Click here for those strategies.

To your health and performance,

Confused about What Foods are Best for Energy and Health? READ This…

Are you confused about what foods are best to eat for optimal energy and health?

I can honestly say after a decade of helping people transform their health and after studying over 100 dietary theories… I was still a bit confused too.

Over the years I’ve experimented with a number of different “Diets- ways of eating” to see what worked best for my unique body and health goals…

figuring out what worked for me personally, some took a great deal of trial and error.

Working with clients I’d guide them through a self-experimentation process to become more connected to their bodies so they could to do the same. Some people would do amazing including whole grains in their diets and others wouldn’t.

Some clients would feel great eating higher amounts of healthy fats and then some wouldn’t and on and on. Eventually, after several weeks and months of getting my clients to self-experiment, we’d be able to dial in what worked best for them through feeling and trial and error. Keep reading there is now a much easier process to figure this out…

What I discovered through this process is that there is no-one-size fits all way of eating that works for everyone! To take that one step further there is no such thing as a food that works for every single person (anyone that tells you otherwise is misinformed.)

What’s healthy for your friend or spouse may not be healthy for you, and what’s healthy for you today may not be healthy for you six months from now.

I can say with 100% certainty this is a truth and really common sense when you think about it. How could one way of eating work for everyone? We all come from different backgrounds, have different health needs and goals, and are biochemically unique.

Now hear me out… there are guidelines for healthy eating that work for everyone and they include:

  1. Eating REAL food (not eating processed ‘fake’ food think Twinkies and Cheetos)
  2. Eating the highest quality food possible (local and organic)
  3. Eating mostly fruits and vegetables (plant-based)

What is so interesting is the new research shows that the foods that maintain a healthy microbiome are the best foods for us to eat. The research shows that our health REALLY starts with the health of our microbiome or “gut” for short.

So by optimizing our gut health, we are optimizing our health and when it comes to balancing our microbiome health, food comes first!

So the specific foods that are right for us, right now (note: this changes as we go through life) are the foods that keep our unique microbiome balanced and healthy.

Determining what foods to eat used to be a process of trial and error until now…

Thanks to cutting-edge new technology we now have access to a new system that provides a testing service to understand how healthy or unhealthy our microbiome is and what food specifically is right for us today to optimize our well-being and health.

The service is called Viome and it takes microbiome management to the next level by pinpointing numerous factors like beneficial bacteria and probiotics that help increase microbiome health. Simply put, you get a customized chart of everything going on in your gut, and what foods you should eat specifically to correct imbalances and maintain optimal health.

Viome uses technology that was born at the prestigious Los Alamos National Lab and was initially designed for national security. They use this technology to perform an in-depth gut analysis and then pair the analysis with artificial intelligence to evaluate the complex personalized microbial data providing you with customized diet recommendations. There is nothing more advanced than what Viome offers today.

I became a huge fan of Viome when I was working on improving my own health late last year.  Viome provided information I wasn’t aware of about my microbiome, and ways to optimize my gut health and heal. I immediately started putting that information into action and started feeling the difference in my digestion and energy level after only a week of following their specific dietary recommendations.

The process couldn’t be easier. When you sign up, you get easy-to-use, in-home testing kits sent to your home. With the microbiome test, you’ll provide a stool sample to determine your gut health and by taking a shake to analyze your metabolism with this information Viome then can determine your body type and unique macronutrient needs.

Based on the test results, you get targeted recommendations for YOUR specific situation that empowers you to take control of your health and your life. With this information, you’ve got everything you need to start experiencing how good your body and mind are designed to feel.

You will also get a personalized list of microbes in your gut, which not only include bacteria, but also viruses, yeast, fungi, bacteriophages, or all other living microorganisms. You’ll learn how many good guys are hanging out in your gut and – just as important – your gut diversity, or the number of different types of organisms that are active in your gut.

You’ll learn valuable information like your diet type, and you’ll even learn what specific foods to enjoy, minimize or avoid. Detailed results and personalized diet recommendations are delivered via an easy application on your phone.

Again, diet and health are not one-size-fits-all. You are unique, and so is your gut health. Viome takes the guesswork out of the equation so you get a personalized map that helps you fix your gut to lose weight, reduce the risk of disease, and ultimately, feel your best.

Like me, I’m sure you want to do everything possible to optimize your health and energy. With Viome, you get individualized results to customize nutrition that works for you!

When you take control of your gut health, you have the power to heal.

Viome is the most powerful tool I’ve seen and has made a difference in my own health.

Viome offers a complete gut intelligence and metabolic intelligence tests and provides a stream of personalized recommendations for only $399. I now use the service in my premium High Performance Health Programs and I’m sharing about it with my community.

I know cost can be a mindset barrier for some people so I partnered with them to be able to offer a 50$ discount bringing the cost down to just $350 (p.s it used to cost thousands of dollars to do advanced tests like these – not anymore) click here to get the discount (Note: the discount will be applied at checkout)

Fixing your gut health – and therefore overall health – has never been easier, more precise, or more customized. I am confident that you will feel as empowered as I did to take back your health.

What’s more important than that?

Wishing you health and happiness,
