Thank you so much to the 2,988 people who recently helped us name our baby… the new gut project we’ve got in the works! We sent out FREE supplements and tests to random participants and those who suggested our new website name…
Because this is something that’s very important to us.
See, the name of a website matters… and at the same time it doesn’t.
Look at SCD Lifestyle. It took us over 6 weeks to figure it out back in 2009. And now many participants of our community aren’t even doing the Specific Carbohydrate Diet.
What matters, I believe, is the message… the quality and the results that a website delivers. And if the name of that website is not built on those factors, it can be overcome.
The Results of Our Survey (Naming Our Baby)
It’s Official… We are super excited to announce that the name of our new project is…
The Healthy Gut Project
It was a closer race in the end than we expected, but the one we had our hearts set on won in the end.
Thank you for all your help with the selection of the name!! This community is the soul of why we get up each morning… and we wouldn’t have it any other way than to have you naming our new baby…
Now, it’s time for us to get to work on the branding, logo and website design. But we’re actually very excited to do the work because it’s going to be bigger than anything we’ve done before.
Larger than SCD Lifestyle — Larger than Solving Leaky Gut.
Many of the Details are Becoming Clear
We want more specific experts teaching all of us about gut health. These would be people whose lives are devoted to this topic in both deep research and clinical application. And we’ll help them reach those with gut issues. If you have recommendations already, please let us know…
We will create more inspirational resources to help fuel and guide your journey. Because we know that knowing what to do and actually doing it is the battle…
The steps are typically simpler than we want to believe, but the execution and the healing journey is the tough part. This is an area that we are super excited to spend more time on.
We’ll continue to dive deeper into the mental hurdles and challenges of being sick, recovering and staying well.
This will become an even bigger community than it is now. It will be all-inclusive as long as you follow some simple respectful rules. Any diet is welcome, any condition is welcome – we want to be the place for those with digestive issues.
We are feverishly working on new, better and more comprehensive ebooks, videos and articles to help you with all of your digestive issues.
What The Healthy Gut Project Means to Us
It’s about everyone, not just SCD’ers, not just diarrhea or leaky gut. It’s about digestive health in general…
And more importantly, it’s a project.
A project means that we can’t do it alone. It’s a group effort – a community of people coming together. That’s a very big deal to us.
We’re finding that the more we learn about gut health the more we realize we don’t know. But we are getting better at understanding what our unique abilities are and they’re not always in teaching the science of nutrition, understanding of biology or breaking down the latest study.
But that doesn’t mean we’ll stop those things. It’s just that we are ready for some serious help in those areas and others.
The Healthy Gut Project is going to be BIG. Our dreams and goals are going to blow you away… which is super exciting and a bit overwhelming.
With SCD Lifestyle, things were simpler, we wanted to spread the message of the diet, make it easier to actually do it, and speed up the results people were getting. And that’s not going away (so don’t worry).
With Solving Leaky Gut, it’s a bit more complicated. We want to be beacons, spreading the word that this is a very serious issue that is affecting MILLIONS of people. We wanted to create the best resource to get people healing and help save them $1,000s of dollars. We’ve done a decent job so far this year… but more work is needed. That’s not going away either.
The Healthy Gut Project is going to be FUN, Inspirational, Inclusive, and Blaze The Trail for anyone who’s ready for a healthier gut. Whatever that means to them.
Thank You for Your Support
I wrote a post last Thanksgiving that talked about how grateful we are for all of our readers and about how we spent weeks and months (that led to years) not really sure that we’d make it…
Not sure if we were helping anyone…
Not sure if we could do it.
We were told we weren’t writers, we weren’t business people, we couldn’t make a living helping people, we weren’t educated enough, and we weren’t healthy enough.
They were ALL WRONG…
Because of you…
Because of this incredible community.
Your continuing support is the reason we are still here – still proving the haters wrong – still growing and about to blow the doors wide open!
You’re the reason we continue to do what we do… and for that, we’re so grateful.
