Why you should join.
Once you have taken my Kidney Stone Prevention Course, you will have all the education you need to begin your road to kidney stone prevention. As with any special diet, you start off with the best of intentions and work really hard every day.
My experience tells me that it is crucial that patients have a way to stay accountable. What happens when you fall off the wagon? How do you get back up and ready to go? Most people fall off and it can take months to get back in, if they ever do. Where is the reunion of the T.V. show, The Biggest Loser? Never going to happen. Most people always go back to old habits and gain all the weight back.
I created The Accountability Group as an inexpensive way for people to get the support they need to stay motivated, committed, and supported throughout their healthy journey. How do you get through birthdays, holidays, vacations, and eating out? How do you stop yourself from making bad choices once you start? How do you end the vicious cycle, for good?
How it helps.
You hop on a group phone call and talk it out with me and all the others that are trying their best, and you stay accountable to yourself and to us.
We exchange recipes, ideas, support, and of course, we laugh too. We are all committed to seeing each other succeed. It is a wonderful, compassionate, helpful, fun, and supportive way to stick with your commitments. And those who come, are happy each time they do.
Bring your follow up reports, talk about other medical conditions that might be impending your dietary restrictions. Whatever you’re going through, you bring it to “The Group”. And we are always there for you. No judgement allowed.
“Has been absolutely perfect, I feel it’s a great extension of the course and has helped me tremendously in keeping on the path to recovery and, more importantly, the integration and management of everything I have learned.
The facilitation by Jill along with the sharing and experiences by the other participants has helped so much these past several months.”
“I came upon the University of Chicago website after much searching. I was desperate after a stone blocked my one kidney and sent me into sepsis a year ago last July. Doctors instructed me to go on a low oxalate diet. There were too many websites with too much conflicting information. I called many nutritionists who couldn’t help me because I’m also diabetic and the diets conflict. Finally, I found a nutritionist who suggested I go to the University of Chicago website because she remembered Dr. Coe from her early training. What a discovery! That’s when I found Jill Harris’s course, took it, and became so informed and so less stressed.
I joined the Accountability Group months later when I felt like I wanted a refresher. In this group, Jill continues to guide me on my path to better health. I learn something new each time I go to the meeting.
Jill is compassionate and knowledgeable in her field. She is down-to-earth and explains everything clearly and often entertainingly. I am so thankful! I feel in control of my situation now as I am armed with knowledge. In addition, Jill has linked me to Dr. Coe, who recommended a kidney specialist in my area. What a resource!”
