…I had given up completely, no one understood, or so I thought.
I had to see so many doctors it made me dizzy. And then I had to keep track of everything they prescribed and try to sort out what helped and what didn’t…
…I never know in advance that a flare is coming, and when it does nobody can see that I’m sick. But when it’s bad, I have to miss work and it’s hard to explain…
“Thanks to GIThrive, I’m focusing on slowing down when I eat and thoroughly chewing my food. It’s amazing how much less I eat when doing so. The hardest habit to break is thinking I gotta clean my plate because of those starving kids around the globe. I’m down 3 lbs in a week.” – GIThrive User
When I found your program, for the FIRST time, it just made sense to me!
I am learning what this disease really is, what my trigger foods are, and how to minimize flare-ups.
With advice and support from my team, I’m learning about my condition, my trigger foods and how to minimize flare ups. I’m so very grateful for the help and support.
…The truth was I needed some help, like a personal coach, to find the right care for me and my condition. I found this in Vivante; my Health Sherpa found the resources I needed, took care of the all things that were stressing me out, and put me on an eating program that has made an incredible difference in my life.
“Good Morning Susan, Thank you so very much for your response. It was a relief to have a friendly ear to vent with. I have been so nervous, and I hate to admit, just ignoring the elephant in the room, my intense stomach issues. I was not able to sleep or concentrate, even the nurse and doctor didn’t help ease my concerns. Then yesterday I met you, verbally anyway. After our discussion I felt so much better, I called the doctor and scheduled my surgery, went to dinner with my husband for the first time in 6 months, and can you believe, I slept like a baby all night. Thank you so much, I hope you will continue to stay in touch with me through this ordeal, and I know you will, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Have a wonderful day and thank you so much for reaching out to me.”
Just got a call from one of my team members @Vivante to check on me due to I’m having some problems this morning. They helped me right away. That’s pretty awesome.
…Then I spoke to [my life-work coach] and she put my mind and very upset stomach at ease. I could not believe how we practiced ways to relax my mind and body, I could feel my gut relax and for the first time in weeks I was pain free.
Had some real trouble last night and received a message from my Vivante team. My sister received one too. #YOUGUYSROCK
…my assigned dietician has consistently gone above and beyond. She constantly reaches out to me, especially when I report an issue with the daily check-in…
“Hi Susan, just wanted to touch base with you quickly. Thank you for helping me understand the things in my life that I can control and the things I have to let go of. I did order some books and am reading 2 on letting go 🙂 Since speaking with you I’ve felt much happier!” – GIThrive Member read more
I am feeling better, I am feeling healthier and it’s all because of your team!
Beyond the personal care that I was receiving, they matched my gut to a specific diet, called the low FODMAP diet.
I’ve seen worlds of change. I’ve started exercising more and I am feeling healthier!
The spasms, and looking 5 months pregnant at the end of the day…it’s all gone!
I have started to do the things I really enjoy again!
For the first time, I‘ve been able to go out more and more, which has been such a relief! It’s exciting to have that kind of change.
[…]What we like about Vivante is that they are on our employees’ side to help them get through the healthcare system and bring them the resources they need to get better. At the end of the day for our healthcare plan, Vivante is really key to our strategy to empower those with chronic illnesses… Vivante is comfortable helping our employees figure out what it is that meets their needs and working with them to get them on the road to being more confident and feeling better about their health.
…I found help through my employer’s Vivante program. Vivante connected me with a Health Sherpa, my personal assistant, to help me. She was awesome, easy to talk to and just got things done for me. I feel more confident that I am connected to them, less stressed, and feel a lot better.
