Not many people know that I suffer from an autoimmune disease.



It doesn’t even have a name.


Doctors couldn’t figure it out. My body just decided to attack itself. I mean what’s up with that?


I suffered for years with no help from traditional medicine. It actually made me worse.


My condition came on slowly and insidiously like most chronic conditions.


I had to go through multiple surgeries and procedures for kidney inflammation, urinary tract infections, and chronic pain.


The more I had, the worse I got. Interesting how that happens to so many.


Medicine’s answer was more pills and antibiotics. It got so bad I had to leave practice and stop teaching for eight months.


The brain fog was the worst. I could barely remember anything and I was taking three naps a day.


The energy level was zero. That’s not living.



I felt like I was dying. (NOTE: That’s one of the first sign of inflammation)



Finally, I had enough and empowered myself to find an answer on my own. That is when I discovered gut health. The gut is 70% of your immune system.


My immune system was beyond shot. And holy cow I was dropping atomic bombs of antibiotics in my gut the entire time! The worst was of them all was Bactrim. That stuff kills everything. It was slowly killing me!


I developed a systemic candida infection and ended up with diverticulitis and leaky gut. None of my doctors mentioned these as culprits. I am a Chiropractor for goodness sakes and even I didn’t know to look at the gut.


So I did some online research and started doing what most ‘gut experts’ recommended. Taking probiotics, fermented foods and anti-inflammatory supplements.


I started feeling better and got some of my of my brain back, but I still looked really bloated and inflamed. I quickly hit a wall. I doubled down and added more of the same. Mistake!


I got worse. I got so frustrated!


What am I doing wrong? Why am I getting worse? I’m doing all this anti-inflammatory stuff



Well turns out it was all the wrong stuff... FOR ME!



That's the key point. Recovery for autoimmune disease and immune system issues needs to be client specific because individual history matters as to the root cause.


I reached out to my friend Dr. Stewart Gillespie for advice. He’s a friend and functional

medicine expert. (He’s the guy teaching this course with me).


What he said blew my mind...


"Perry, you are doing all the wrong stuff to help your immune system."


Needless to say, I was upset but also happy to know there was still hope. Even though all that stuff


I was doing CAN BE good, it was just not good for MY immune system.



I was giving myself more inflammation from the anti-inflammation protocol.



What the hell!


We changed things up and I stopped taking everything and began a few new ones.


Lesson number one:


It’s what you stop doing that often makes you better more than what you start doing.


Stewart said if it’s the right combination you will feel a difference in three days and if you stay on it for 30 days you will be a different person.


Well, folks, he was right.


Within 3 days I felt amazing. No more naps. No more brain fog.


started dropping weight like a stone. In 30 days I lost 17 pounds without trying. Bloating and

swelling went bye bye (That’s what happens when you reduce inflammation).


Lesson number two:


Fat storage is used to move inflammation away from the vital organs. It’s a sign of toxicity.


Reduce systemic inflammation and your body will grant weight loss. I said to Stewart, "how in the hell do people not know about this stuff?" I was doing everything the ‘experts’ told me and I was worse.


So many people are needlessly suffering because they just don’t know what they don’t know.


In that moment we decided to create a course based on the information and approach that helped me. But, we knew we needed to reach those on the front lines who spend most of the time with their clients on a daily basis.


People like you!


Teach you to spot the signs of inflammation and look at what your clients are doing on a daily basis that may be making them worse.


We designed a course for fitness professionals and the massage community. Personal trainers,

strength coaches, yoga instructors, Pilates, athletic trainers, massage therapist, etc.


Simple, powerful and safe things you can do in the scope of your profession to help others. 


It’s finally here! We want to share this amazing approach with you to change lives.

  • Have you ever felt there was more to helping chronic pain than just treating symptoms?
  • Ever wondered why autoimmune system problems are skyrocketing?
  • Have you tried all different types of nutrition plans to feel better and get leaner and nothing helps?
  • Heard of hormones yet have no idea how to assess and influence them?
  • Gut health is the new buzzword in healthcare, but are you unsure of how to heal it?


You will get answers to these questions and many more at the:

Stop Chasing Symptoms: Functional Medicine and Movement workshop.


In this exclusive 2-Day intensive workshop launch Dr. Stewart Gillespie and Dr. Perry Nickelston come together in order to teach you the systems they use to help restore movement and health.


During this workshop students will gain insight of how to cope with inflammatory conditions of the patient that manifest as pain or poor movement patterns.


How to deal with inflammatory digestive hormone and autoimmune conditions that you see everyday.



How to assess these patients from a clinical history intake, to laboratory assessment to specific protocols designed to get them out of their inflammatory starts as quickly as possible.


Natural human movements to integrate all the systems of your body with quick resets.


Back to basics of movement interaction by learning the brain lymph pump, craniosacral motions, and piezoelectric pressure point stimulations to release prior ‘shocks’ to the body.


You will leave the workshop with a simple, practical and applicable 30-Day system for helping your clients regain health. A step by step program anyone can implement immediately.


You will never look at your clients the same way again. Symptoms tell you there is a problem, they don’t tell you the cause. Learn what the body is telling you by its cries for help.


When you give the body what it needs it will tell you quick, fast and in a hurry. If you don’t, it tells you that too. How can you tell? That’s what we show you.


Don’t miss this inaugural launch that is reserved for the special few who are receiving this invitation. The 1% who dedicate themselves to learning and exploring innovative and effective ways to help their clients.

  • Special course for trainers, strength coaches, and massage therapist who want to work closely with healthcare professionals to help their clients.
