    The Principles

    1. There is NO secret. Our culture, its stressors, and the way of life we've created in our modern times are the OBSTACLES keeping us from seeing and doing what will self-evidently lead us toward a more fulfilling and healthier life.
    2. There are 4-Pillars that support the foundation of Wellbeing.
    3. You already know most of what you will be taught... it is somewhat self-evident and intuitively obvious.
    4. Making the change is the real challenge and this course is designed to help you make these changes... over time and PERMANENTLY!

    My Style

    It's important for you to know how I think about health and how we change. People tend to make changes because of two primary forces in their life:

    1. Overwhelming pain, or
    2. Overwhelming desire.

    Why do I say "overwhelming? Because the pain or desire must be potent enough in its ENERGY to cause or force change in the current lifestyle, belief, and HABIT structure. Habits are powerful; there's pretty good evidence in the behavioral sciences that we do NOT actually ever change a habit. We REPLACE A HABIT.

    We replace a habit with another behavior; this alternative behavior pushes against the powerful force of the established habit. If the new behavior persists long enough, and is powerful enough, it will establish itself as the new habit. But, many of us have experienced a change that did not last. Maybe the new behavior worked for a few days or even a couple of weeks; but then, its power seemed to weaken and the old habit exerted its power once again.

    One way to think about "why" this happens is power. Some combination of a weakening of the power of the new habit, or the overwhelming and persistent power of the old habit caused the full establishment of the new behavior to fail. We often say that we "lost our willpower". No we did not lose our willpower. We simply stopped believing in, or seeing or feeling, the overwhelming benefits of the new habit. Maybe the pain lessened; or maybe the desire for something different and better lessened. Either way, the new behavior and habit was not powerful enough to overcome the old.

    So the question becomes, "How do we maintain and strengthen the desire for something new and better?" How to we feed the power of the new habit?

    Since I don't know where you are at: overwhelming pain or overwhelming desire... I've built this Wellness Course to bolster your power for something better. The information is designed to educate, inform, and inspire you in ways that will help your brain believe that you can create a brighter future for yourself and your family. CHANGE WILL COME WHEN YOU BELIEVE THAT A BRIGHTER FUTURE IS POSSIBLE AND WITHIN YOUR REACH.

    The course is organized to help you know that there is scientific evidence to support what you probably already know or believe: "It is NORMAL to be WELL!"

    The course will also follow my personal path of discovery. As a physician with a scientific background in biology and genetics, I faced a dilemma early in my medical career: the fact was that I did not KNOW what was actually causing all of the symptoms and disease, the dis-ease and pain that I was "treating". I could figure out the diagnosis (symptoms and signs of disease), but I did not understand what was behind these symptoms, driving the problem and perpetuating the problem.

    I had a sense that the signs and symptoms of disease were connected in some way... after all, how could so many people have a very similar mix of problems with their blood work, pain, fatigue, and brain fog, libido or menstrual problems, etc. etc.

    Then, in 2008, my wife fell into what I can only call a mysterious chronic disease state. She exhibited a shocking array of neurological, pain, and fatigue symptoms that neither I nor her other doctors could make any rational sense of what was going on.

    How could one person, a young woman, have such a wide array of severe symptoms? How could one person have so many seemingly different diagnoses?

    Maybe you can relate...

    Each diagnosis brought a temporary hope that we have "figured it out". But treatment benefits were short lived and generally yet another problem cropped up. Another new diagnosis...

    So, my personal journey began from a point of extreme pain. And honestly fear and suffering. I had a young wife and four small children and a very questionable future.

    To find a real answer, we needed a better way to think about the problem... and a strong desire to NOT live a life of pain, suffering, and disability.

    I want to share this with you because progress and change will come in part from HOW you think about the problem you face... and WHAT you believe to be true.

    How you choose to think about the problem will help or hinder you from discovering your solution.

    The first concept is to shift your thinking from the "disease" (the name your problem may have been given) to a question: "What could be preventing my body from healing and functioning in a state of wellbeing?" What is holding your body back from performing the way it was designed to perform?

    Think about your overall health and wellbeing as a balance of stressors. Every day, naturally, your body is placed under stress. Stress is essential to a vibrant and health body and mind. The body is designed to mount responses to stress, to adapt, and overcome. Stress can make our body and mind stronger.

    But, too much stress and too little nourishment for the body and mind can prevent the body from adapting... and so the body moves into a dis-ease state. The longer and stronger the negative stressors persist greater than the good stressors, the more our body's ability to adapt will be compromised.

    As we move forward, much of this course content is designed to help you understand WHAT the various stressors are, where they can be coming from, what to do to reduce them, and how to implement new healthier behaviors.

Shipping & Handling

A safe and accurate address for delivery must be provided at the time the order is placed. Once an order has shipped, SupplementRelief.com is NOT responsible for lost or stolen packages CONFIRMED BY THE CARRIER to be delivered to the address provided for the order.

Since COVID-19, and the ensuing economic challenges in the USA economy, we respectfully ask that you allow some additional time for delivery for the carriers (USPS, UPS, and FedEx). Most orders still arrive on time, or near on time, but some may run late. We make every effort to get your order packed and into the carriers hands the same day, or by the next business morning if your order came in later in the previous day after carrier pickup, but we have no control over any delays that may happen within the shipping carrier's delivery system. Please order earlier for the time being if you are time-sensitive.

Orders that contain only FirstFitness Nutrition products have a shipping fee automatically calculated based upon the actual shipping weight of the items purchased. The charge ranges from $4.95 to $14.95.

For orders with NuMedica products you may choose from the shipping options below on the Order Checkout form in the Shipping Information section on the first line that says Choose Shipping Method.

Country Option Schedule Cost

International Shipping

Shipping anything these days internationally is expensive. COVID resulted in more rigorous customs import processes, and now with much higher energy prices, international shipping rates are higher.

FedEx is the most reliable and faster carrier, at least for now, but they are expensive. Our FedEx international shipping fee is a minimum of $79.95. It usually makes more sense to get several months of supply (3 months or more) in one order to minimize the shipping expense per order over time. While the added weight of additional items may increase the base shipping price by a little (usually 10-25% depending upon total weight and destination), it is usually not by very much relative to shipping an additional small order later.

We also offer a lower-cost international shipping option using GlobalPost International for $39.95. So far, they have been reliable in getting packages correctly delivered but it takes 2 - 4 times as long to get the package delivered. Packages may take longer to process in the receiving country's customs process and status updates may not be reported as quickly. Please be patient if you choose this option to save money.

Some International orders may cost more to ship depending upon weight and location. If that happens we will contact you first and get your approval for any additional charge before proceeding. International orders may also be subject to additional customs fees and duties/taxes based upon the destination country's customs import laws and policies. These fees are NOT known or included on our order form and are typically charged and collected by the shipping carrier when they are delivering the product to it's final destination once the package has cleared the destination country's customs process. It is recommended that the buyer research custom import fees for the products/services they are importing beforehand to be aware of potential, additional fees.

Shipping Refrigerated Products

Our manufacturers formulate their probiotics to ensure their products retain viability until they reach the consumer. Probiotics that are recommended to be refrigerated remain so until the time of shipment, then shipped alongside an ice pack to ensure potency (Note: Ice pack will not arrive frozen, and product may not arrive cold). Orders placed on a Thursday-Sunday requiring cold shipping will not ship until the following Monday.

Cancellations

If your order has not been shipped yet, you can request a cancellation. Your original purchase amount will be refunded within three business days. If your order has already shipped, see Returns and Refunds.

Changes, Returns and Refunds

If you want to make a change to your order, please email us as soon as possible so we can make the change before your order ships. If your order has already shipped you may incur additional shipping charges for the second shipment and the return label for any products returned.

If we have made a mistake on your order, or the product arrives in a damaged or unusable condition, we will make every reasonable effort to right the situation quickly to your satisfaction. Problems of this nature must be reported to us within 5 business days of the package delivery date documented by the carrier status.

We accept returns subject to when the return is requested and the condition the product is returned in. All returns must first be authorized by contacting us. In your request, please let us know why you are returning the item(s). We will respond promptly with authorization, the return address, and a return shipping label if appropriate.

You may use the original packaging for the return or acquire your own. We will provide the return shipping label.
