    How Christina Kantzavelos Survived and Thrived After Battling Various Autoimmune Diseases

    How Christina Kantzavelos Survived and Thrived After Battling Various Autoimmune Diseases

    In this episode, we have Christina Kantzavelos. Christina has battled with food sensitivities, migraines and various autoimmune diseases for decades, including POTS, celiac disease, Lyme disease, co-infections and mold toxicity.

    However, after experiencing illness for so long, being couch and housebound, and sensitive to just about everything (scents, food, EMF's), she is now back in the world, hiking, traveling and tolerating most foods, and scents. Although she is still very much on the road to healing, she has made a conscious decision to choose an attitude and intention of thriving, over an obsession with surviving and hopes to share that with others.

    Dr Jessica Peatross - Why She Left “Traditional” Medicine And How Functional Medicine Can Help Heal Your Chronic Illnesses

    Dr Jessica Peatross - Why She Left “Traditional” Medicine And How Functional Medicine Can Help Heal Your Chronic Illnesses

    In this episode, we have Dr. Jessica Peatross. Dr. Jessica has a passion for uncovering the mystery behind the chronic illness, whether that be stealth infections, heavy metals, stress, trauma or other environmental toxicities. She is visionary for the future of healthcare and left her position as a board-certified, internal medicine hospitalist to pursue Functional Medicine in order to better serve her patients. By getting to the real, root cause answers for why the body might be malfunctioning. 

    Her philosophy embraces that health encompasses the whole patient – mind, body, and spirit – and Dr. Jess has become one of the most-sought after Functional Medicine Leaders. She is known for her ability to help identify the root cause of illness, most oftenly traced back to hidden, stealth infections like Lyme, parasites and mold, Dr. Jess’s area of expertise. 

    Dr. Jess left her hospitalist position and became trained in Gerson Therapy, Functional Medicine, Nutrigenomics, and Ozone Therapy and quickly uncovered that 90% of disease is a result of lifestyle, diet, and environment as well as discovered that the body has all the answers to heal and reverse chronic disease.

    James Wilson’s Journey Overcoming Chronic Fatigue

    James Wilson’s Journey Overcoming Chronic Fatigue

    In this episode we have James Wilson. James has dealt with chronic illness from a young age, being diagnosed with chronic fatigue at nine years old. He spent much of his time being bed bound and was even in a wheelchair. After making a full recovery, he was able to get back to a normal life, going to university and playing tennis at a high level—only for his health issues to return in his 20s and therefore having to face a new set of challenges as an adult this time.

    As he worked on his own recovery, he delved deep into the mind-body connection which actually has led him to becoming an NLP Practitioner, Hypnotherapist & Life Coach.  

    He was fortunate enough to be trained by Lightning Process creator Phil Parker alongside an incredible variety of medical and holistic wellbeing practitioners, GPs, academics, creatives and coaches, who have all experienced the power of NLP and the mind-body connection in their own lives.

    How Vanessa Bighinatti Became Symptom-Free From Lyme Disease and Other Co-Infections

    How Vanessa Bighinatti Became Symptom-Free From Lyme Disease and Other Co-Infections

    In this episode, we have Vanessa Bighinatti. Vanessa struggled for years with Chronic Lyme Disease, Bartonella, POTS, EBV, SIBO & Leaky Gut, Chronic Fatigue & Pain, and Parasites.
    At 24 years old, she was bound to a cane, at rock bottom, and thought she was missing out on the most important years of her life. After abandoning pastas, breads and cheeses, she realized how much food has an effect on her symptoms. This diet shift, though drastic, gave her hope for remission and changed her life. Now, Vanessa is happy to say she is in remission from most of these symptoms. She continues to heal each and every day, becoming more herself through nutrition and a holistic lifestyle. 

    Where she once saw her illness as a curse, she can now find gratitude for the path on which it’s taken her--to  becoming a certified holistic health coach! Vanessa is so inspired to help others find their own way and is happy to be able to guide others on their own unique journey, emotionally and physically, because healing is a lifestyle.

Love it!

These success stories are what really help me to keep going. When I’m going through a rough time with anything related to chronic illness, I turn to resources like this and always feel better about things. Thank you Phil!

Most Encouraging Podcast out there!!

Phil and his enthusiasm to encourage others is absolutely incredible and contagious! I wish this had been around when I was still sick with Lyme - it would’ve given me the hope and comfort I longed for!

Hope when you are feeling hopeless!

I love the positive spin that is taken on chronic illness! So often it seems doom and gloom, but this is uplifting and inspiring to those suffering.
