Has your doctor ever shamed you for not taking the best care of your health?
I’ve heard these kind of wake up stories many times
But none quite like Carols.
Carol is a 67 year old retired teacher who’s had multiple knee surgeries.
Even after many rounds of physical therapy, her knee pain wasn’t getting much better.
Carol felt slow, tired all the time… Carol admittedly felt old.
One day she went to her pcp for a stress test and her number were simply not good.
In Carol’s words...he shamed her for not taking her health seriously.
Now regardless of my thoughts on Doctors shaming their patients (I hate it btw)
It sat in Carol’s mind awhile, but she wasn’t acting on it.
Until the first time she tried to get on the floor with her grandson who had just started to crawl.
….and she couldn’t get up.
Here she was not only getting shamed by her doctor, but now unable to get off the floor by herself.
Carol was losing her independence in her mid 60’s! (Not something she wanted.)
So even though she’d tried PT many times and never worked out before she gave us a try at Inner Strength on the recommendation of a friend who told her we could help
Even with her bad knees.
I’ll space you the details of how, but 8 weeks later, Carol felt better than she ever had.
And a month or so later she strolled into her doctors office for her follow up stress test
It took the doctor awhile to get her heart rate up, and he did a double take at the nurses..Carol smiled.
Once they finally got her heart rate up, Carol blew the test out of the water!
After it was over you know what the Doctor said?
He said “Why are you even here!?!...Go home”
Carol came directly to us and told us the story...she was beaming with pride and told me to share… so here I am.
The moral of the story is that even when you think you’re down and out FIRSTNAME
You’re not by a long shot.
So if you’re a woman in your 40’s, 50’s or 60’s with pain, injury or 20-200 lbs to lose and you want to lose fat, get out of pain and create a healthy lifestyle that will energize you day in and out.

You’re capable of more than you know,
When you have chronic pain and know your physical health is deteriorating because the pain makes it hard to even move, let alone exercise..it feels horrible.
But I'm here to tell you, it’s not an impossible puzzle.
However, most will try to solve it in the wrong order.
They try to minimize their calories 1st because it’s what they can control.
But this just leaves them hungry and tired.
Then they try to walk more because it’s something they can do.
But even that sometimes leaves them feeling sore and in pain for days on end.
So what are you supposed to do if you can’t minimize calories and you can’t even walk for exercise?
Here’s my first (most effective) step.
Address your gut inflammation.
When your gut is inflamed you feel (amongst other things) very fatigued.
And often anxious.
Neither of these things paired with hopelessness are a very good addition to your mindset.
It leads to an easy downward spiral.
So how do you reduce gut inflammation?
Everyone is different, but a great first step is to reduce one of the following
Dairy, Gluten, Sugar, Hydrogenated Oils, Grains, Red Meat
Which should you choose?
I’d start with whatever is most prevalent in your diet and go a week without it.
Remember this is about boosting your energy and finding what makes you feel best.
You’ll also naturally reduce empty calories because all these foods are full of them. (Score!)
Once you address your gut inflammation, your metabolism can get back to regulating itself and then we’re cooking with gas!
I just gave you the first step we take in our “Nutrition for Healing” protocol at Inner Strength.
If you’re a woman with pain/injury and 20-200 lbs to lose and have been feeling hopeless about reversing the cycle, this plan is for you!
