    Quotes:
    “When nothing seems to help, I go look at the stonecutter hammering away at his rock perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow, it will split in two, and I know it was not that blow that did it, but all that had gone before.” - Jacob Riis.“Just because it’s not working immediately, doesn’t mean it’s not working.”

Your journey to health begins here.

After struggling for years with GI issues and, consequently, other health concerns and getting nowhere with different GI doctors, I stumbled upon this podcast, which has changed my life.

My body was under extreme stress from an extremely limited diet for years and severe bloating and constipation. However, I can finally say that my quality of life is improving because most of my issues have been resolved by listening to and applying the information in this podcast.

Thank you, Dr. Finley, for changing lives and GUTS!
