Frequently Asked Questions
Can I continue taking my usual supplements while doing this program?
If you have a medical condition that requires that you take certain supplements or medications, then please continue taking those. If you are taking supplements for any other reason, it is generally best to stop taking them during the Blissful Belly program and start them again when you have completed the Blissful Belly program.
Can I do the program and still cook for my family? We have done our best to create recipes that are both healing and delicious. Hopefully your family will enjoy these new recipes and will be excited about trying something new. We know that not all families are that way and so you may need to make recipes both for you and your family. This can be done, but it will take more time. If you are considering doing this program, try to get your family on board or have someone else prepare the family’s meals so that you don’t have to do double duty.
Can I do the program while I am traveling? You can, although it is not recommended. The Blissful Belly program works best when you are in your home environment and can establish some new routines and practices that will assist in improving your digestion and long-term health. If it is absolutely necessary that you do the Blissful Belly program while traveling, make sure that you have thoroughly understood the structure of the program and have access to a kitchen where you can cook.
Can I do the program while I am working?
Yes! The Blissful Belly program is designed to be fit into a busy professional life. There is no fasting involved in the Blissful Belly program, so you will have adequate energy to continue your lifestyle and activities. Please note that during the Blissful Belly program many of your body’s resources will be turned inwards, helping you to optimize your digestion, so it would be best to avoid taking on this program at a time when you have big deadlines coming up. Clear your schedule as much as possible during the Blissful Belly program.
Can I do this program during my period?
If you are menstruating, your body is already cleansing. You want to avoid depleting yourself during this time, and it is best to ensure that you get adequate rest. If you feel that you can maintain strong energy while doing the Blissful Belly program, it is generally safe to do so; there are no negative interactions that should arise.
Can I do this program if I have candida?
If you are currently having a candida infection (or are prone to having candida infections), it is best to consult with a qualified practitioner for guidance about following a strict anti-candida diet. If you have had candida in the past, and it is under control, then you can do the Blissful Belly program if you reduce or eliminate all grains that are suggested.
Can I do this program if I have had my gallbladder removed?
The Removal phase of the Blissful Belly program is specifically designed to improve your ability to digest and metabolize fat, which was the primary digestive role of your removed gallbladder. You may need to make some slight modifications to this section of the program to ensure that your body can skillfully improve its ability to digest fat by reducing the amount of ghee or coconut oil that you put in your morning elixir during this phase, but the long term results of improving your ability to digest fat are worth it.
I avoid dairy. Can I still do this program?
Yes! You will make two easy substitutions. These are detailed in the program.
Who is leading this program?
Dr. Noah Volz has been leading programs like the Blissful Belly since 2010 in Colorado, Oregon, and California. He is a graduate of the California College of Ayurveda and American Vedic Institute. Noah has studied extensively with Dr. Vasant Lad, Dr. Sarita Shrestha, and New World School of Ayurveda—and he continues to learn from masters in the field.
Before falling in love with Ayurveda, Noah was a chef; he brings his love of cooking to this book as well as his deep knowledge of yoga, massage, and chiropractic.
Noah has condensed over 20 years of study and practice into this amazing resource. Most systems of health and wellness believe that healing begins in the belly. Through this program you will find ways to bring your body and mind back into balance so you can live the life for which you were meant.
I believe the human body is an intricate puzzle. I’ve spent my life seeking radiant health through movement, diet, and lifestyle changes and am passionate about sharing what I learn with others. As a child, growing up on a farm in Minnesota, I intuitively grasped the ebb and flow of cultivation and consumption and the power of natural movement.
Integrated into my DNA was the understanding that the earth provides nourishment. With proper care, our bodies—like the earth—become strong, viable and healthy.
I’m a lifelong learner and find myself constantly searching for opportunities to move my body and find new ways to heal. A degree in Exercise Science in 1993 led to my study of massage therapy in 1995 and eventually yoga therapy in 2002. Throughout my wellness-based career path, nutrition was always paramount. When my mom was diagnosed with Primary Biliary Cirrhosis, I rolled up my sleeves and committed to my first liver cleanse. When she followed my lead and dramatically improved her health, I witnessed firsthand the healing capacity of nutrition. I knew there was no turning back; the pure power of this work became crystal clear to me. I was certified as a Nutritional Therapist in 2013 and have been helping people heal ever since.
The past 25 years have been a healing journey for me on many levels. I’m inspired by the healing I witness daily and by the dedicated people I serve. Helping people move with comfort, live without pain, and improve their wellbeing is my passion. I have been inspired by the work of wise people such as Jo Tastula, Amy Ippoliti, Rodney Yee, Weston A. Price, Sally Fallon, Erik Dalton, and Thomas Myers. I have also studied under teachers who have trained with Ida Rolf and Bonnie Bainbridge. I integrate the natural flow of the seasons and attempt to tune in to the natural world in everything I do. Utilizing modalities such as structural integration, craniosacral, Thai massage, yoga, myofascial release, and sports massage, I create customized plans for healing. I help people regain comfortable movement and achieve radiant health through diet and lifestyle changes.
I am grateful to live my passion every single day, professionally and personally. There is nothing like a telemark turn in deep, fresh powder or surfing a clean, smooth wave. Whether I am playing on the trails with my husband and kids, nurturing my family in the kitchen, or seeking solace with our chickens in the backyard, I am in awe of the body’s ability to adapt—to heal, change, and grow. We are all connected by this thread of life, and my job is to uphold my end—to teach, remain teachable, and continue the legacy of those before me. Won’t you join me?
