My name is Jen, and this picture comparison is a snapshot of my journey – going from the depths of despair to enjoying the gift of great health!
It’s not just about the 72 pounds I lost, though. Even more importantly, every negative health condition that was going on inside of my body has now been eliminated or is in remission!
After a long and frustrating journey to many doctors, and despite Celiac test results that indicated no presence of Celiac disease (read here why that could happen to you, too), it was suggested that I try a gluten free diet.
In 2010, I went gluten free and experienced a lot of improvement in my health – but it wasn’t until I went entirely grain and soy free in 2012 that I found the key to perfect health! Besides the 72 pound weight loss, I also eliminated lifelong high cholesterol that my doctors had previously treated with statin drugs. Even more importantly, my new dietary lifestyle eliminated dangerous inflammation I was experiencing, and put my Hashimoto’s disease into remission…and even eliminated any evidence of diabetes. Even my skin, hair, and sinuses changed! There were other improvements too – I used to suffer from debilitating panic attacks…GONE! (read my full story here)
Grateful for my new life, I became certified so I could start coaching others, and also formed a support group. The results I’ve seen with those I’ve coached has blown me away! I was amazed at the results that each person experienced when fully committing to a new dietary lifestyle…weight loss, reduction and elimination of medications, improved digestion, better sleep, heightened immunity, improved behavior in children…and the list goes on! The reduction of inflammation is incredibly key as a factor in preventing the worst of diseases: cancer, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, MS, etc.
It has been a true gift to receive my life and my health back and I’ve made it my life’s passion to share this information. It’s my sincere hope and prayer that you can experience the freedom that good health brings!

Maybe you’ve been hearing about “gluten free” in the news or from a friend, or maybe you’ve seen the expanding aisle at the grocery store and wonder why so many people need all these special products. The term “gluten free” currently refers to products from containing wheat, barley, rye and sometimes, oats. The FDA’s labeling of “gluten free” means simply that a product must contain less than 20 parts per million (20 ppm) of gluten. Eliminating gluten has helped thousands of people improve from a myriad of health conditions.
A grain free lifestyle eliminates any item that comes from a grain source. Things like corn, rice, millet, sorghum, teff, and their associated flours made from these items are all grain-based. Unfortunately, these items are also in virtually every packaged product, most often listed as an ingredient that you may not recognize. During my personal coaching sessions, I teach you how to identify these ingredients so you can succeed while doing your grocery shopping!
So…what is the difference between a gluten free and a grain free lifestyle?
A grain free lifestyle automatically reduces or eliminates the following risks:
Other reasons to consider a grain free lifestyle:
If you are in any of the above scenarios with your health, it is vital that you make these changes! If you are already gluten free, you might be thinking that you digest rice and corn with no issue; that it doesn’t affect your system at all. Before you dismiss this entirely, let me ask you:
Wouldn’t it be great if none of the above applied to you? If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, I urge you to consider giving grain free and soy free a try. You went gluten free once…and this is a similar quest. Just like when you made that change, you will know in a relatively short time if being grain free makes any difference in your body and your health.
You can’t put a price on perfect health – and you deserve the freedom of feeling great!
How do I know this? Not only have I lived it personally in my own journey…now I am seeing it in others by using my own experiences to help people feel better every day!
What results have others experienced?
After extremely poor health led me ultimately to be diagnosed in 2010, I have spent every waking moment learning how to be transformed into a healthy individual. I attended classes from an integrative medical expert (Dr. Glen Aukerman, author of 120 Days to Total Health), and then received my certification from Gluten Free Society in 2013.
If you are gluten sensitive, or have Celiac Disease, optimal wellness is much easier to obtain by fully eliminating gluten, grain, and soy from your diet. Read the full story about my journey here and join us on YOUR path to a healthy and delicious life!
