Minding the MatterWelcome to Minding the Matter! A reminder of why we are here, doing things this specific way: https://www.youtube.com/watch?vOkC7Ul3ZFMA You have two options for the Minding the Matter series, both have worked well for many people. Option 1 uses Dr. Gerard Mullin's book The Gut Balance Revolution. Option 2 (on this page, below) uses my team's own eBook. Both approaches are very similar and entirely complementary to each other. Both approaches offer recorded calls. For those that feel skeptical and aren't sure if this is going to work, slightly doubting anything will work, I feel you will do best with Option 1. Email me if you have questions, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Option 2, using our own eBook, is here:Step 1: Read in detail the Minding the Matter Ebook Download file. Take notes on what stands out for you. Prepare a shopping list using the Food list for your first few days. Notice the recipe links for ideas. But after downloading, please don't forget to also include Steps 2 - 7 below as they are integral to the program content... this is not just a food list :-) I wouldn't sell you that. Step 2: Watch the Day 1 Video which includes:1 – The best approach receiving the MtM series: open heart, open mind, setting aside all we thought we knew to make room for more to consider and discern and choose. 2 – My morning routine. 3 – Our food and beverage guide for the MtM Series and where to find it. Please ignore this part since in this option 2 of the MtM series we aren’t using Dr. Mullins food guide any longer and we aren’t requiring the purchase of his book since we’ve adapted to our own version of a program. 4 – My own easy, super charged, Gut healing Smoothie Recipe you can personalize. Update: Since this video I now make my smoothies with water (preferably Reverse Osmosis water or natural spring water (www.findaspring.com)). I found that nuts and the nut milks weren’t serving me as well as water. For those that made great progress in first 1-4 weeks and are now hitting a plateau, please take a fresh look at what you can explore substituting, removing or adding. Is your diet sufficient in variety? Is there an item to explore removing for a week to see if you see more improvement? Be curious at each phase at what works best for you ????5 – The freshest approach to looking at your food tastes, preferences. 6 – The multidimensional nature of your Gut and how to use it’s nature to your benefit in Restoring Health! Step 3: Get familiar with Ketosis, and Keto Diets by watching this video from Jimmy Moore. We recommend you consider a Ketogenic approach in this program as it offers numerous health benefits and healing properties.Also, see this great, simple post on 10 most common low carb mistakes is here.Step 4: Prepare for "Die Off" with these Detox Strategies, VideoAs we 1) begin the approved food list for MtM and 2) stop feeding and supporting the “bad bugs” here are Key Strategies for Staying Comfortable and Sane during the Natural Detox/”Die Off”/”Carb Flu” that most experience in first 1-3 days (or possibly more). I’ve got your back, peeps – Celebrate the Release!Please note: in all videos shared here, with Option 2 please disregard any references to Phases, Dr Mullins or Gut Balance Revolution as is for Option 1. For Option 2 we are instead using the eBook. Step 5: Join the FB Group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/1081143791930957/ and look forward to adding you to it for easy connection. If you haven't yet been added, please contact me at email@example.com. There are so many great questions asked that I answer in the FB group - I can't replicate the additional resources being shared in the FB group.Step 6: Enjoy the Recorded callsCall 1 replay here Estrogen/Progesterone interview on High Intensity Health we discussed is here.Mail order lab tests you can order without a doctor are here.Call 2 replay hereCall 3 replay (great questions in here - thank you!) hereStrange fact update: please avoid canned mineral water La Croix as its cans are lined with BPA. I realized it was causing a dry itchy feeling in my throat, did some research and learned this. They only offer glass bottled versions in two states in the US. So, glass bottled mineral water is a better option for those that like the bubbles.Call 4 replay here Step 7: You may also enjoy the recorded calls from the first version of MtM from 2016 Just please keep in mind that some of the conversations are based on Dr. Mullin's book which I'm no longer recommending (his work worked great for what he called Phase 1 and we've integrated that into the updated MtM. But the other phases caused problems for many so we are no longer using his book or his concept of phases, at all). Step 8: Review the eBook, front to back. If you need me to email you a copy, please request it via email at firstname.lastname@example.org There is a lot there that we don't address elsewhere that are KEY to success. XOxo, Jill For those who participated in the original MtM, our first Version of MtM (Option 1) remains available here.
