HOW CAN THE SAME PRODUCTS TREAT BOTH IBS AND MIGRAINE? WHAT IF I HAVE ONLY ONE AND NOT THE OTHER?
Gut Brain Therapy™ treats the body, not the symptoms. By addressing underlying cause, a treatment can work on more than one disease at the same time. Gut Brain Therapy™ is designed to improve and repair poor digestive function. Compromised digestive function leads to poor digestion and absorption of protein. This has the potential to have a negative impact on any or all of the protein metabolism cycles of the body. One of the body's most critical protein metabolism cycles is the one that produces brain chemicals called neurotransmitters and neuropeptides. Imbalance in this cycle can result in symptoms of IBS and/or migraine, and potentially other neurological issues like anxiety, depression, etc. Further, there is enough neurogastroenterological research to suggest that there is no distinction between IBS and migraine; rather, that they are different symptomatic expressions of the same underlying dysfunction. Remember, the body doesn't know "migraine" or "irritable bowel", it only knows balance and imbalance. Gut Brain Therapy™ addresses the imbalance behind both of these "diseases".
WHY CAN I ONLY ORDER FOUNDATION & RENEW FORMULAS TOGETHER?
Gut (Foundation Formula) and liver (Renew Formula) are two sides of the same coin. All disease is caused by the breakdown of normal function in one of three areas. The first two areas of breakdown are digestion and elimination/detoxification or, put more simply, gut and liver. It is ill-advised to help one system work better and not the other. Experience assures us that customers are best-served when they address and improve gut and liver function at the same time. That being said, customers are welcome to order combinations of our products to suit their specific needs by simply calling the office (610-374-5258 or 800-683-9459) to place their order.
WHY DO I HAVE TO TAKE SO MANY CAPSULES?
Five capsules at a time may seem like a lot at first to people who are accustomed to pharmaceutical drugs. Because natural medicine is just that: natural, it lacks the potency of chemical-based, lab-created drugs. Additionally, Gut Brain Therapy™ is whole-food supplementation. Whole-food-based products simply take up more space. Remember when you're taking the capsules that this is real food and natural herbs; it just happens to be in capsule form.
If you are finding taking the capsules difficult, please try opening them and mixing the powder into yogurt, juice, applesauce, a smoothie, or some other carrier. Many pill-adverse customers find this is an effective method for taking them.
DO I HAVE TO TAKE THE "RECOMMENDED DOSE"?
The recommended dose is based on our research and experience with the products and seems to generate the most consistent results. However, some customers learn they need less and others find they need more; your body will tell you. That said, because these are not pharmaceutical drugs, the protocol will take some time to work. Consistency is important; taking a few capsules here or there probably isn't going to do very much. Gut Brain Therapy can make a huge difference in how you feel, but you have to take the capsules...every day.
HOW CAN SO LITTLE PROTEIN DO SO MUCH?
The protein in Foundation Formula goes through a natural, proprietary fermentation process that renders it into small-chain peptides. This is the form of protein (versus intact proteins or single amino acids) the gut lining can directly absorb to repair itself. Our protein is not the same as what you'd find in protein drinks or bars; it is uniquely bioavailable-- the most easily assimilated protein on the market. One of the reasons so many Americans are protein-malnourished is that, despite eating high-protein diets, their bodies aren't absorbing the protein. It doesn't take tons of protein to correct this problem; just a little bit of the right thing can make all the difference in the world. (And it does.)
I DON'T HAVE IBS OR MIGRAINE. CAN YOUR PRODUCTS HELP ME?
There are few people so healthy they couldn't benefit from improved gut and liver function. Only when the digestive system and detoxification pathways are functioning optimally can the body fully employ its amazing repair and recovery mechanisms. Consider the concept that the body is not only capable of healing itself, but it is, in every minute of every day, striving to be as healthy and balanced as possible. Based on that concept, improving gut and liver function has the potential to help the body to repair and recover from any disease state. Many "healthy" people find that they feel "so much better" on Gut Brain Therapy™. You honestly have no idea how good you can feel until you try it.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOREVERWELL PRODUCTS TO WORK?
This will vary from patient to patient. In our 90-day study, which was published in a peer-reviewed journal, 80% of the migraine sufferers had good to dramatic improvement in quality of life. They all noticed some improvement in the first 30 days, though, for some, the biggest improvement occurred in the final 30 days. We have noticed a similar response in our customers who are suffering from IBS. We recommend that you take the products at the full recommended dosage for 3 to 4 months and then at half dosage for an additional 3 to 4 months to get maximum healing benefit. Remember, we are treating disease from the root up, not targeting symptoms. Restoring balance to the body can take time. Please be patient. It'll be well worth it.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS FROM TAKING YOUR PRODUCTS?
The principal side effect you can expect is an improvement in the number of IBS or migraine attacks you experience. We state it this way to emphasize that this is holistic medicine; the direct effect of our approach is improvement in digestive and elimination function in the body. The side-effects are that symptoms of disease begin to disappear as the body heals. In the beginning, some of our customers experience some mild gastrointestinal changes such as bloating, diarrhea, constipation, etc. This generally occurs in about 20% of the customers and is typically short-lived. These symptoms indicate that things in the body are shifting, and they are generally a good sign. One of the great things about holistic medicine is that when we seek to restore balance in the body (as opposed to attacking symptoms), we see improvement in all sorts of areas: improved sleep, better skin, more energy, and improved mood are some of the common side-effects of addressing gut and liver health.
DO I HAVE TO STOP TAKING MY MEDICINES TO USE FOREVERWELL PRODUCTS?
No. We generally recommend that you make no changes to your current use of pharmaceutical, natural, or over-the-counter IBS or migraine medications. As the duration and frequency of your migraine or IBS attacks decrease, please consult your doctor about the possibility of eliminating those products you feel you can do without. We understand that it is important and necessary to continue using products that provide relief of your symptoms while our products work at a deeper level to restore balance so that you no longer need to medicate your symptoms.
WILL FOREVERWELL PRODUCTS INTERACT WITH ANY MIGRAINE OR IBS DRUGS I'M CURRENTLY TAKING?
No. The main thing to remember is that our products are whole food-based nutritional products focused on improving digestive and eliminative function. We are targeting different areas of the body than the drugs are. You can safely take both.
DO YOU SHIP INTERNATIONALLY?
Yes, we do. All international packages ship at a flat rate of $25. If you're having trouble completing your order online, please contact us at 800-683-9459 or send us a message.
DO I HAVE TO STAY ON THE PRODUCTS INDEFINITELY?
No. Your migraine and/or IBS symptoms indicate that your body has suffered some deterioration of normal function. To the extent we move you body back to normal and the symptoms go away, you may stop taking the products. Some people will find that they can go off the products and the migraines and/or IBS attacks stay away; others (particularly those under more chronic stress) will find it necessary to stay on a maintenance dose of one-half or one-third the recommended dose; still others will experience such a positive over-all improvement in their health that they decide to use our products as standard supplements to support good health.
WHERE ELSE CAN I PURCHASE FOREVERWELL PRODUCTS?
At this time, ForeverWell products are available exclusively from our website. You won't find them cheaper anywhere else.
WHAT IS YOUR RETURN/REFUND POLICY?
Any unopened product may be returned within 60 days of purchase for a refund of the purchase price. Shipping charges are not refunded. Any product returned from an order that included free shipping or product discounts will be credited actual shipping fees, and product discounts are applied to the returned product.
IS THERE ANYTHING I CAN TO DO HELP SUPPORT THE BENEFIT OF GUT BRAIN THERAPY™?
The simple answer is, "Yes, of course". While there is no "one size fits all" answer to this question (every body is different), there are some general areas of improvement that just about everyone can benefit from: diet, stress levels, and exercise are great foundational areas to focus on. Even small improvements in these areas can work wonders for your overall health and support the rebalancing and healing processes that Gut Brain Therapy™ is triggering in your body. More specific recommendations on these and other topics will be addressed in our newsletter and blog, coming soon. While we are offering our Gut Brain Therapy™ as a treatment protocol to the public, we first and foremost consider ourselves to be an education company. We are beginning the process of educating the public on a new way of addressing chronic illness and intend to be a leading voice in helping individuals reclaim their intuitive wisdom of self.
DO YOU HAVE ANY DATA CONFIRMING THE EFFECTIVENESS OF GUT BRAIN THERAPY™?
In 2001, we conducted our migraine study, which was published in a peer-reviewed alternative medical journal. In this study, 80% of participants treated with Gut Brain Therapy™ reported notable improvement in quality of life and migraine symptoms. Of these, 75% experienced total or near-total relief of their migraine symptoms within 90 days of beginning the treatment. We are excited to be currently organizing additional clinical studies to further explore the potential of Gut Brain Therapy™.
