Meine Couple Overcomes Chronic Pain and Disease with Lifestyle Change and Diet

In “Eating to Live: Unlocking the Leaky Gut Code” Authors David and Carla Meine offer readers a life-changing personalized approach to managing this widespread condition.

Utah Business Leader David and his wife and business partner, Carla, a certified functional nutrition counselor, have achieved what many have described as a “miraculous” triumph over chronic pain and a variety of medical ailments which persisted for decades.

Despite living what he thought was a healthy lifestyle and a lifelong obsession with athletic performance that has included Senior Olympic-level cycling, tennis, triathlons, and even an Ironman Competition, David Meine could hardly keep up with the daily pain he was experiencing. It became a common occurrence for him to spend days confined to his bed due to excruciating back pain. Around the same time, he was diagnosed with bladder cancer. He also battled a series of other ongoing issues, including sleep apnea, debilitating knee pain, and brain fog.

Tired of having doctors treat symptoms instead of determining root causes, David and Carla began their personal journey to find solutions. Through much research and many different doctor appointments, they began to “connect the dots,” eventually realizing that all of David’s health issues were related to the same underlying problem, a condition called “leaky gut syndrome.”

Leaky gut syndrome is a condition where the tight junctions that keep the body’s intestinal walls together become loose. When this happens, the body’s gut barriers allow dangerous substances, including undigested food particles, bad bacteria, and toxins into the bloodstream. The body reacts to this invasion and attacks these foreign particles, which causes symptoms like depression, joint aches, obesity, low energy, and indigestion in its wake. It can also lead to more serious health issues like autoimmune conditions and affects the body’s ability to properly absorb nutrients.

Through their consultation with Dr. Steven Gundry, a leading physician in restorative medicine, David and his wife soon learned that the culprits were in his diet, and they were creating a negative inflammation cycle in his body.

David explains, “My diet and frequent consumption of pain medication had been the cause of so much pain and sickness in my life. By eliminating certain foods, including all refined sugars, and giving up all NSAIDs… and through proper health supplementation, I started healing my gut.”

The difference, in David’s own words, was both “dramatic and startling.” He reports that once he eliminated the items his body couldn’t tolerate, the pain level he experienced on a daily level was significantly reduced- from a usual range of 8 down to 2. He was able to reverse other health conditions and “get his life back.” David and Carla are now on a mission to share what they’ve learned to help others do the same.

In “Eating to Live,” readers will have a chance to follow David and Carla’s journey as they discover the answers- each “piece of the puzzle” that has transformed their lives. Readers will be delighted that the book emphasizes there is no “one-size-fits-all” recipe for a healthy life. Instead, the four-phase program leads each reader through a process of becoming the scientist for their own body as they discover which foods their body can and can’t tolerate.

They’ll begin by eliminating foods that can wreak havoc on the gut and typically cause inflammation. As they journal results and follow the plan outlined in this book, each reader can step into a plan unique to them that has been proven to reduce joint pain, help shed excess pounds, and bring increased energy to their daily life. A significant side effect that most clients experience is an immediate improvement in brain fog.

Clearly, there is a need for an individualized approach that doesn’t just prescribe medications to treat symptoms. It is especially important as the nation emerges from the global pandemic, and every individual can strengthen their immune system by following functional nutrition wisdom.

With his new lease on life, David Meine is energized and excited. Both husband and wife are grateful for how the experience transformed their lives. They look forward to many vibrant decades ahead with their blended family of 7 children and 18 grandchildren.

David and Carla share their excitement with their readers and invite them to transform their lives now and experience healthy new possibilities. For more information check their website:
