We’ve lowered the bar so much when it comes to what health and wellness should look like, that I think we’ve lost sight of what healthy actually is.
If you’re an A-Type entrepreneur putting in the work and the hustle to make your business thrive, there’s often a cost. For Chris Michael Harris, that cost was a health crisis. When he hit rock bottom, Chris was a 29-year-old suffering from severe gut issues, which created a knock-on effect emotionally, physically, and mentally. He had deficiencies across the board, he was bedridden, his body was beginning to shut down, and he struggled with suicidal thoughts.
His condition was so bad; doctors told him he’d be gone by 40 – best-case scenario, 50.
This diagnosis forced Chris to review his lifestyle and his perceptions of what it means to be healthy. Turns out, he’d set the bar extremely low, and looking back over his life, Chris began to see a pattern of environmental factors which stretched right back to birth.
Chris is now 34 and is in the best health of his life after committing to a journey of restoring health. He’s energetic, vibrant, and supported by the data he needs to stay in optimum health.
In this episode, Chris reveals what it took to turn his life around – and in the process, challenge what it means to be healthy.
