THE EMOTION CONNECTION: What if you could guarantee an elevated emotional state, especially during tough or stressful times? What if you could absolutely know which nutrients, supplements and personal development techniques to use to uplift yourself and others to create almost instant shifts in your emotions? This is a theme we will carry throughout the duration of this course and will be one of the most valuable takeaways from everything you will learn.
THE STRESS CONNECTION: We are all inundated by many forms of internal and external stress. Having an awareness of all the possible stressors and simple ways in which you can mitigate these, is truly one of the most valuable skills you will ever learn in life. Stress is so pervasive, degrading, debilitating, and harmful to your health and that of your clients. You’ll learn small hints and tips you can use yourself as well as give to your clients which will propel transformation in everyone’s life. Allow yourself to free up energy to do so much more and elevate your performance level.
THE DETOX CONNECTION: With cleansing and detoxification now in the public awareness, there are many ways in which one can not only detoxify, but also do it in a way that is less than positive for the body. You’ll learn about not only how to strengthen the body and mind through detoxification, but you’ll also learn a wonderful layered approach that can detoxify you in a subtle and unintrusive way. These layers can increase the depth of detoxification until one becomes ready mentally, emotionally, and physically to go ‘deep’ into the world of shedding unwanted toxins from all areas of the mind-body-life complex.
INTRODUCTION TO BALANCED NUTRITION: A whole definition of ‘Balanced Nutrition’ within the renewal paradigm.

We’re going to learn how to unlock the GI so that it literally doesn’t play such a confining role in your life.
THE BIOLOGY OF BELIEF: In my early days of discovering the power of our mind over our bodies, I was introduced to the world of Dr. Bruce Lipton and his profound work in uncovering the way in which we control every aspect of our genetic expression by the environment around our cells which we create through our actions, nutrition, environment, beliefs, thoughts, and emotions. This awareness will set the tone for the rest of the course.
KEY NUTRITION DEFINITIONS: We’ll redefine what it means to truly ‘nourish’ our bodies at the molecular level. We’ll also explore dozens of areas in which you can upgrade and expand your nourishing lifestyle for yourself and your clients.

CRAVINGS: Learn how to listen to your body, your mind, and your emotions so that cravings can tell you more than just the negative connotations attached to them. Sometimes it’s just nice to go out and have a ‘fun’ meal without having to feel guilty! So let’s get to that point together. Let’s get rid of any negative associations to food you may have so you can be free to enjoy the good times when they come up, and not worry about any negative side effects or beliefs from the past.

INTRODUCTION TO INSULIN RESISTANCE VS. SENSITIVITY: With the rampant firestorm of people becoming diabetic, we’ll explore what causes this to occur and what are the simple shifts we can take to steer our lives in a new direction.
SALT: We are ‘electrical beings having a human experience’. When you ‘turn on’ the electric potential throughout your body, a whole new world of mind-body connection opens up for you. The ‘forbidden’ salt that comes from highly processed systems is clearly not the salt we’re talking about here. You’ll learn about a whole new way of thinking about salt and will never want to go without it again.
WATER & HYDRATION: There is a saying that goes ‘you aren’t in pain, you’re dehydrated’. After coaching 1,000s of clients in these past decades, I still have never met a person who was properly hydrated when they first came to see me. This one key area will alter the course of your health career and life.

CHEWING AND DIGESTION: Not just any chewing … but a whole new way to approach eating itself!
BREATHING AND SLEEP: The two areas you normally don’t think about having to focus on are the cornerstones to health itself. Next to digestion and hydration, these are 2 of the most overlooked areas of healthy living which DIRECTLY affect our nutritional profiles and ALL of the results we are getting from the healthy foods we’re eating.

Every goal we can have, mentally, emotionally, physically, financially, spiritually, and in our relationships is tied to the amount we detoxify and cleanse our cells, our bodies and our minds.
EXERCISE PERFORMANCE, RECOVERY, AND RENEWAL NUTRITION: One of my favorite areas is in
the area of physical performance! Everything we do with our nutrition is DIRECTLY measurable within the realm of our physical output. This is where the rubber hits the road!

Not only will you learn that you can end this cycle permanently, but also find out how to get to your results in a sustainable and simple way. The latter is the most important to truly grasp: that easy shifts and additions to your day are likely going to be the ones that are sustainable. So throughout this course, we’ll always come back to making wise decisions in the select areas of our lives that will impact all of our life. Once you’ve mastered these first simple shifts, you can then move on to add new simple shifts and so on.
