Designing a Healing Plan

I have been writing a series at SCDLifestyle on the necessity of looking at the big picture when healing from digestive illnesses like Crohn’s, colitis, IBS, celiac, and diverticulitis.  (Read Post One and Post Two here.)

In the first post, I discussed the value of a big picture outlook, and introduced the concepts of balance and prioritization as they relate to healing from digestive illness. In the second post, I expanded on those concepts, and walked through the first steps of developing a big picture-focused healing plan.

In this post, I deconstruct my healing pyramid, and guide you through inserting goals and using your visionary goal to produce a healing plan. At the end of each section, I will give an example of that portion of my healing plan.

Big Picture #2: Setting Healing Goals

My second post on Seeing the Big Picture is out on SCDLifestyle.com.

I’ve clipped an excerpt here to get you started…

One of my personal goals for this series (and in writing and coaching in general) is to share some of the tools that I have developed over the years in the hope that they may speed your healing, and save you anguish along the way. Getting to the place where I could write a series like this has been a struggle. I have had some wonderful successes (like the SCD), and I have had some miserable failures. It has taken a tremendous amount of trial and error, of searching out experts, of reading books and studies, blogs and chat forums, to get my gut under control. Writing this series in hindsight, I hope, will help minimize some of that for you.

In my last post, I discussed the value of a big picture outlook and introduced the concepts of balance and prioritization as they relate to healing from digestive illness. In this post, I will expand on those concepts and walk you through the first steps of developing a big picture-focused healing plan. If you are using this series to its fullest, remember to get out a pen and paper, so you will be ready to jot down ideas and think about the questions and concepts along the way.

IBD and Coaching

I am now offering personal coaching for those interested.

Mentoring, coaching, and teaching are pursuits in which I have been involved for about ten years. It makes sense to merge my skills and experience in these areas with my experience in natural healing methods for IBD. You can visit my coaching page, or you can read the description below for more information.

Coaching is one way you can continue to build your team–the group of people who will help you, guide you, and be there for you as you heal and deal with IBD (Crohn’s, Colitis) or IBS. Having a good coach, can keep you on track, help you avoid mistakes and pitfalls, and help you achieve your goals.

Coaching…Chronic Illness, Life, Athletics, Groups and More

Coaching is very popular in the business world, and with athletes (of course). Stop and ask, Why is it that top executives and elite athletes find it essential to have a good coach?

We can learn from them.

A coach challenges you to take steps you might not take on your own. A coach can help you see your life and your life potential in ways you couldn’t or wouldn’t otherwise. A coach will hold you accountable for the choices you make, and help guide and focus those choices toward your goals so that you live up to your potential.  A coach has an extensive tool kit which can help you achieve your goals.
