Digestive Wellness Education

Instructor: Martie Whittekin, CCN


Proper digestion is much more than the absence of gas, bloating, heartburn or constipation. Great digestion pays dividends in more energy, a brighter mood, sharper brain function, better skin and so on. Let the HBN University Digestive Wellness Curriculum teach you crucial reasons to optimize digestion, build a strong intestinal barrier, boost good bacteria, and effectively detoxify. Find the root causes of health problems and fix them!  

In the 4th Century BC, Hippocrates, the father of medicine, said “All disease begins in the gut.” Scientific research is finally proving how right he was. Don’t wait decades more for that knowledge to reach mainstream medical practice. Take charge of your health today!


Course 1 – Yeast, Fungus Complaints and Leaky Gut

An overgrowth of intestinal yeast and/or “leaky gut” are responsible for causing or at least worsening many health complaints. This is just a sampling of associated conditions:

AsthmaCancerEndometriosisHeadachesInsomniaPanic AttacksSinus Congestion

Includes natural remedies for vaginal yeast infections, athlete’s foot / smelly feet, and nail fungus.


Course 2 – Digestive Complaints

Huge sections in drug stores feature medicines for digestive trouble. Those drugs often relieve GI symptoms, but they are not cures and might even make matters worse over time. In this course, you will learn:

  • Heartburn / Acid Reflux: The popular drugs for these conditions, if used for more than a few weeks, can create life-threatening side effects. Solve the indigestion problems naturally and comfortably wean off the medications.
  • Constipation: You might be constipated, but not realize it. Become regular naturally.
  • Diarrhea: Most people have the runs at least occasionally…such as when traveling. Others’ lives are disrupted by diarrhea on a regular basis. Learn how to restore normal bowel function naturally.

Course 3 – Detoxification & Probiotics

Do you know if toxins in your cells are silently taking a toll on your health, happiness and longevity? If you know the methods, beneficial bacteria in your gut can be harnessed to reduce toxins, improve vitality and protect you from disease.

  • Toxins: Chemicals in the air, food and water can damage your thyroid gland, brain, heart, fertility, and, well, every cell and system in your body. Learn how to avoid them.
  • Detoxification: Learn about proven detoxification techniques, equipment (e.g. far infrared sauna) and supplements.
  • Probiotics: The trillions of friendly bacteria in your digestive system are as important to your well-being as your liver, kidneys and genes. For instance, they help immune function, make nutrients and detoxify. This course tells how to feed them and protect them from harm. It also provides guidelines for selecting probiotic supplements.
