I am Matan. I am a welness advisor and author of the book Gut Rules.
As a young photojournalist in the Middle East, I was diagnosed with a chronic digestive disease (Ulcerative Colitis).
Determined to heal my “incurable” condition, I spent the better half of the last decade trying to understand the reason I became sick and why is it we develop a disease. I read thousands of studies, and medical reviews on nutrition, medicine, and the functionality of the human body.
I collaborated and studied with practitioners from a wide range of medical practices, among them was Mar Cortes M.D. from Mount Sinai rehabilitation center in NYC, who became the co-author of my first book -- Gut Rules.
My investigation led me to understand the chain of lifestyle events that lead me to develop a disease. And more importantly, understand how to allow optimal conditions in my body so it could heal itself.
To the surprise of my doctors, I was able to completely reverse my condition.
They think it is a miracle.
Today I teach others the tools to reverse disease and self-heal.
