Jordan’s struggle with finding his own path to health has resonated with millions around the world and is one of the most dramatic natural healing stories ever told. His health was excellent during his childhood, but when he was 19 years old and attending Florida State University, he experienced nausea, digestive distress, and an alarming weight loss of more than 80 pounds. Eventually, he was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease, a chronic digestive illness that affects the immune system. Wheelchair-bound and 104 pounds, one doctor’s grim diagnosis was that it was “the worst case of Crohn’s” he had ever seen and he did not expect Jordan to live.
Fortunately, Jordan and his family were determined and sought more than 70 alternative nutritional therapies throughout the world after conventional medicine and numerous hospitalizations failed. His quest for answers concluded with a visit to a California nutritionist who simply told him he was not healthy because he was not following God’s plan.
Inspired by this advice, Jordan voraciously studied hundreds of biblical references about living a healthy lifestyle. He changed his diet to whole foods consumed in biblical times: raw, organically grown whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and fermented dairy, grass fed beef and poultry. He also added a daily regimen of probiotics teeming with beneficial bacteria in soil based organisms. After gaining 29 pounds in 40 days, Jordan knew he was finally on the right track. By his 21st birthday he was tipping the scales at more than 180 pounds, free of the digestive problems that had plagued him for years, and ready to restart his life.
