Tell me if this sounds like you...
You're tired all the time. Or suffer from brain fog and you're not as sharp as you used to be. Maybe it's bloating, constipation, or heartburn on a daily basis. Or joint pain and skin rashes. You're functioning in life but there's a constant undercurrent dragging you down.
You may dismiss it as just getting older or being overworked — but the truth is — you may have unknown food sensitivities that are causing your symptoms.
Maybe you've already even made the connection that the food you eat is somehow to blame, and you've tried going gluten free or dairy free for a while — which seemed to help. But it felt too challenging, too confusing, or too limiting to maintain. So now you just avoid bread or limit the amount of cheese in your diet. And yes, maybe you do feel a little better — but overall you still feel like crap. I've been there and I can help.
See the thing is — you can hypothesize all you want on which foods could be bothering you.
And you can try limiting those foods for a while to see how you feel. But until you fully dive in you're probably not going to find the answers that you're really looking for.
But you're on the right path — you simply need a guide.
That's where I come in.
If we haven't met yet, my name is Kelly and I'm no stranger to food sensitivities. I was diagnosed with hypoglycemia at age 13 and have been avoiding sugar ever since. And more recently I've discovered that gluten, dairy, soy, egg, beef, arugula and pineapple are not my friends. The past few years I've been navigating the challenges of avoiding my food triggers and have learned a ton along the way. And I've also experienced the incredible joy and healing that came from working through those challenges — which is incredible motivation to stick with it.
Discovering and avoiding my food triggers has completely changed my life.
And it's possible it could change yours for the better too. My health issues used to be overwhelming. I was dealing with Lyme's Disease, adrenal fatigue, leaky gut, hypoglycemia — but everything changed once my belly was finally happy. Symptoms that had plagued me for years disappeared simply by changing the foods I was eating. The inflammation, constant fatigue, and brain fog are now gone. So is the bloating and gas. My mood has improved, I sleep better and I have way more energy.
And all without the use of medication or pills.
Which is why I'm so passionate about helping others uncover their own food sensitivities.
I've combined my first hand experience with standard methods to create the 8SAFE Program to simplify the process and support you every step of the way. Because the truth is — it can be overwhelming.
I know because I've been exactly where you are right now.
I'm sure you're feeling torn. You probably want to feel good again so badly that you're willing to do anything. But the reality is the thought of an elimination program completely stresses you out.
My 8SAFE Program can bridge that gap.
It's an online course that will help you discover if you have sensitivities to gluten and the eight most common food allergens: wheat, milk, soy, egg, peanut, tree nuts, fish & shellfish. I'll teach you how to avoid these ingredients before challenging them one-by-one and observing how your body reacts to them.
You'll get an overview of the whole process, then I'll walk you through each step at your own pace.
The program contains a series of videos that you'll watch at your convenience. There's no need to show up at a certain day or time — just pick one day of the week and show up for yourself, when it's convenient for you. The program is also filled with resources, recipes, and tons of tips to help you along the way and ensure your success.
And no worries!
There are no portion sizes or calorie restrictions in the program. You also have the freedom to eat in whatever style suits you (vegetarian, paleo, omnivore, etc). Substitutions are provided for those who are vegan, as well as those who have known allergies to any of the foods being tested.
