The Sensitive’s Solution to Whole-Body Healing
The 5 Pillars of Success
The 5 Pillars of Success create a healing solution that is efficacious, enjoyable, and sustainable over a lifetime.
Light and Healthy
Food and Progress
The fact that the Pillars of Success are numbered 1 to 5 does not imply a pecking order of importance; all of the Pillars are equally important, and the absence of even one would render a solution incomplete.

High-Quality, Sensitives-Friendly Foods
There are two important facts that every Sensitive should know: 1) You cannot take liberties with junky foods the way some other people can without negative consequences, and 2) certain healthy foods are not necessarily healthy for you.
Fact number 1: We have a choice between “garbage in, garbage out,” or “healthy in, healthy out.” Inputs drive outcomes, so quality matters, especially with food. What we eat every day of our lives has a cumulative effect, for better or worse. So we follow five simple quality standards, because we want “healthy inputs, healthy outcomes.”
Fact number 2: We use a special Sensitive’s Food List that eliminates healthy foods known to trigger inflammation and consequent illnesses and symptoms in Sensitives.
All plant foods contain certain antinutrients, which are substances plants exude to protect themselves. The “top 5” antinutrient categories are oxalates, lectins, phytates, salicylates, and gluten. We cannot eliminate all plant foods from our diet, but we remove the worst antinutrient offenders — grains and legumes and certain nuts, fruits, and vegetables.
Because casein, a protein in dairy foods, can also have inflammatory effects on Sensitives, we remove dairy from the Sensitive’s Food List.
You are not sentenced to live without the eliminated foods for life. After three to six months, depending on your healing needs, you can slowly add back eliminated foods, one at a time, to see how your body reacts to them.
You will receive your personalized Sensitive’s Food List when you complete the questionnaire in the Click2Heal™ App. You will find that there are plenty of foods to keep you fulfilled and engaged, especially when you use them to make healthy versions of your favorite treats!

It’s not always about calories! Deep healing is about portions. The Click2Heal™ App’s patented portions system creates a customized Portions Profile — a novel tracking and teaching tool that tells you how much of what to eat, and in what combinations, to achieve and sustain deep healing.
Your Portions Profile is based on a number of factors:
“I’m metabolically unique…so are you!”
When you add what you ate to your Portions Profile, the App distributes the macronutrients onto the portions.
Here is a Portions Profile for a 58-year-old, 115-lb. person who wants to gain 5 pounds, exercises moderately, and requires a higher level of fat relative to carbs:
When she adds her breakfast (2 scrambled eggs, 1/3 cup avocado, one grain-free tortilla, 8 oz. water, 16 oz. peppermint tea, and a wild salmon omega-3 supplement), the portions for her breakfast automatically fill in with green.
Using your Portions Profile teaches you how to eat to maintain optimum health for the rest of your life.

You do not have to go without treats to be healthy!
The Sensitive’s Solution gives you “treat credits.” This is your opportunity to indulge in foods that are “off the list.” What’s your favorite guilty pleasure? Ice cream? Hash browns? Cheese enchiladas? Chocolate? Do it — but keep it a treat!
Of course, as you move through The Sensitive’s Solution, you will learn how to “healthify” your favorite treats, so you will be eating treats that heal your body and satisfy your cravings at the same time! (By the way, the blueberry cake pictured is an “on the list” healthy treat!)
— Pillar #4 —
Light and Healthy Fasting
Achieving and sustaining deep and lasting healing involves continuous nourishing, building, and repairing. Your body performs these activities through two channels: eating and NOT eating.
The Sensitive’s Solution uses a gentle not-eat window of 13 hours.
This does not mean you fast for 13 hours — your fasting time will be more like 9 to 10 hours, because the first few hours of your not-eat window will be spent digesting your last meal.
During this time, your body stabilizes blood sugar, gives your gut a rest from digestion activities, clears out damaged cells, rebuilds at the cellular level, burns fat, and boosts levels of human growth hormone (thereby slowing the rate of aging). You can see how important this is!

Food and Progress Tracking
Tracking both your food and progress is critical.
In the short run, you need to 1) know you are eating according to your Portions Profile and 2) trace your symptom improvements or flare ups back to what you ate. In the long run, you want to see how far you’ve come and assess your healing trajectory. Tracking is the key to both.
The Click2Heal™ App “easifies” tracking:
