Dating Dilemma’s

Whew! One Great Accomplishment. I just canceled my Match account, uninstalled Bumble, Tinder, Coffee Meets Bagel, and OkCupid. I even left Ashley Madison. Kidding. No judgement for other’s, but you’d never find me on that type of website. With those accounts cancelled, apps’s deleted, I feel SO much lighter. Happier. Spacious. Empty. Empty so someone aligned with my personal values can complement my life. A full cup has no space for more. It’s full. Add more, and it spills over, making a mess you then should clean up. I have my lonely moments, at it’s worst I am comparing myself to

Have you heard of Leaky Vagina?

Warning. I’m about to get raw, and real. It may make some of you uncomfortable. Science fascinates me. Have you ever heard of leaky vagina? I hadn’t until today. Leaky gut? Yes. Leaky Blood Brain barrier? Yes. But leaky vagina!?!? I’ve never heard the term before. Yes, your intestinal dysbiosis and leaky gut from Crohn’s Disease or Ulcerative Colitis could be contributing to unhealthy genital health. This is also 100% applicable to the microbiome in the penis. It all makes sense. Let me share a vulnerable, embarrassing, scary story. I remember dating a beautiful woman a few years ago, and

What an emotional day

All my material possessions were delivered home today. I last saw the insides of this Pod fourteen months ago in June 2017 before I asked Ipek to drive me to UCSD Thorton Hospital. The same day I heard those fateful words, “Joel, you may die at home if you don’t goto the hospital ASAP”. Days prior I heard, “Worst colon I’ve seen in 40 years, a meat grinder”.I have the pictures as evidence. It was my first hospital stay, and continued proof natural healing works. Integratively. My ego took a blow learning the hard way which doctors to trust and

Here’s a free gift

I recently posted a video on Instagram and Facebook that has gotten a lot of praise. It’s called “Your thoughts are making you sick” by Dr. Joe Dispenza. He’s one of my heros, and if you listened to the Crohn’s And Colitis Summit, he’s the teacher for some of the healing cases I featured and interviewed, including Bob Stickles, Paul Lemburg, and Joe Figliano You shouldn’t  need a Facebook or Instagram account for either of the two links above to work. Enjoy the short video, hope it helps you on your health journey Before I sign off and meditate(Since I didn’t make time for

My grandfather lost his mind :(

I’ll never forget the day. It was a hot 1996 summer visiting my family in Israel. I had visited many times before, each time growing closer to my relatives across the globe. One of my favorite bonding moments was when my Grandfather would “secretly” slip me a piece of candy that my parents wouldn’t allow. It sounds silly, but it was a thing between us that would make us smile and laugh. This visit was different. Something was wrong. From the moment we saw each other I could see he wasn’t the same. I learned dementia had started and everyone

Can we help pay for your Integrative and Functional medical care?

I recently learned of an amazing company to help you with the out of pocket costs of necessary medical care not currently covered by most insurances. The founder, Phyllis Johnson saw first hand how her son battled, suffered and then recovered from IBD. Phyllis, like me, was working for a “beltway bandit”. One of the government contractors around the Washington DC I-495 beltway. She saw how costly his successful recovery was. Successful as he eventually became one of the many “All-Star Healed Heroes” I featured in the Crohn’s And Colitis Summit. Realizing many would have difficulty with the out of

Mindset Is Everything

It’s been a while since I posted here. I’ve been doing a lot of research which I’m excited to share more of soon, and communicating more on the One Great Gut email list and facebook page. I wrote this last week after getting out of the hospital, and the numerous thankful replies Iv’e received blew me away, unexpectedly. I seriously just wrote this to help get myself out of a health dip. I got real, I got vulnerable, I tell it like it is.  Hope you enjoy reading as much as I did writing it. Mindset Is Everything.
