Matan Hakimi was diagnosed with a chronic bowel disease at age 20. However, that didn't stop him from doing everything he could do to cure himself. No matter how crazy it sounded. And it worked. Matan has spent the last few years investigating different approaches to medical practices and experimenting with the connection between our lifestyle and the medical problems of the last century. After doing the impossible (what the doctors describe as a miracle), Matan shares the tools he has accumulated to prepare his body for the optimal state to recover gut health and heal the body. His 3 keys are: understanding the root cause of disease, learning nutrition, and creating proper lifestyle adjustments to allow for optimal conditions for healing.
