The renowned systems scientist and anthropologist Gregory Bateson once said, "The major problems in the world are the result of the difference between how nature works and the way people think." Indeed, the ever-increasing prevalence of chronic diseases that so characterize modern life epitomizes this discrepancy. Our company, IBDCoach (www.ibd.coach), applies principles of systems thinking, neuroplasticity, and ancestral health to bridge the discrepancy to support patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Our clients work to achieve long-lasting remission through immersive science education, community support, and a unique form of health coaching that emphasizes strategic patient-driven and patient-empowered actions. Incredible and humbling initial results from dozens of clients demonstrate: ameliorations in symptom and disease activity, reductions of inflammatory markers, lifelong friendships formed, and lives changed for the better. We hope to extrapolate the lessons learned from IBD to other chronic health conditions and human health more broadly.
