Just Thrive Giveaway and Discount


Many of you know that I suffered from terrible IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) when I was a teenager. My doctor sadly recommended that I take Citrucel daily and I did! It was filled with fake fiber, orange food dye and sugar! I wish my doctor would have prescribed a quality probiotic like Just Thrive!

A high-quality probiotic helps balance your bowel flora, which naturally can help eliminate Helicobacter (also known as H. pylori, an overgrowth of bad gut bacteria). A healthy gut contains good bacteria in the digestive tract that helps digest food and combat harmful invaders. These healthy bacteria release compounds that we can then absorb and make use of vitamins and minerals. You aren’t what you eat, you are what you ABSORB!

I LOVE Just Thrive and we all take it daily! My boys are from Ethiopia and you would assume, not being exposed to American illnesses and viruses, they should have been sick often but they were and are never sick! Their good gut bacteria helps keep them healthy! Probiotics are so important for gut health and so much more. Most of our immune system starts in the gut. I love that JustThrive probiotics don’t have to be refrigerated! Plus being non-GMO, dairy free, gluten free and more I know there isn’t any hidden junk in it that I don’t want in my body.

Probiotics are so helpful for moods too! Our moods come from a healthy gut!


Acid reflux can often be caused by H. pylori, a pathogenic organism; it’s the only bacterial organism in the stomach that is never killed by hydrochloric acid. Probiotics can attack H. pylori and other harmful organisms.

A healthy gut contains good bacteria in the digestive tract, which helps digest food and combat harmful invaders. These healthy bacteria release compounds—such as vitamins D and K2— that we can then absorb and make use of. Taking antibiotics for the treatment of acne also kills good gut bacteria, which can cause Candida overgrowth and increase skin outbreaks.

Supplement with a high-quality probiotic like Just Thrive and take it in the morning before you eat. For most people, one capsule a day is an appropriate amount. Sadly Craig took very powerful antibiotics for a year to help kill Lyme Disease so he needed more probiotics during that time to restore his good gut bacteria. If you also had to take antibiotics or have a recovering immune system, take two or three capsules a day until your gut health is restored and make sure to not take at the same time as you consume the antibiotic, then drop to one capsule per day.

One of the main reasons I love Just Thrive is because I do not have to refrigerate it. I once thought I needed a refrigerated brand but Just Thrive doesn’t need to be refrigerated and it works better than past brands I purchased! I keep a bottle in my suitcase since I travel every weekend and I no longer worry about needed a refrigerator in my hotel room to keep it cold.

I also order Just Thrive’s K2 Supplement and we all take it daily! I love that is has a quality chelated magnesium in it too!

  • Candice S. says:

    I started my keto Journey with Maria on January 5, 2021, and have never felt so satisfied and prepared while on a “diet.” But make no mistake, it’s not a diet, but a way of life. All of the resources on the website plus membership makes this lifestyle so easy to follow. Maria’s done the work for us with recipes, meal plans and macros calculators. I recently did a personal health assessment with Maria for a customized supplement program to help revitalize my thyroid and detox my liver. I’m just a few days in and an already feeling better! I love that she include Doterra suggestions to augment the supplements and recipes. I’ve lost 15 pounds since I started the program and continue to lose. I feel so fortunate to have found Maria!

  • Rachel Hessler says:

    I’d love to try Thrive! Keto has helped me lose weight (especially after pregnancies) and maintain my weight. It has helped my young daughter lose weight and have self confidence! I love how I feel on keto and all you’ve taught since learning to eat “the maria way” many years ago! 🙏🏻💜

  • Kristen Kinney says:

    Although I am still struggling, keto has become the rule rather than the exception. Holidays and family visits tend to knock me off track but now that I know I am battling an addiction, it has helped tremendously. I visit this site often for support and encouragement. Thanks for all you do!

  • Megan says:

    I just restarted and am doing the Keto 101 course but I cannot wait to do this for my daughter. For me to be healthier and heal a chronic injury, and I need energy and a happy attitude to be the best mom to her I can. I want to give her a great chance too. I love that you guys homeschool too!

    My daughter and I both suffer from IBS. I have tried probiotics (both refrigerated and non-refrigerated) and they seem to make my gut feel on fire so I just can’t take them. I haven’t tried Just Thrive. I’m also not Keto Adapted either!

    Maria and Craig have OPENED my Mind to A LOT of Misguided Information I have received throughout my life!!!! I LOVE you guyz and your boys!!!!❤️❤️❤️❤️

  • Coby Burns says:

    Following the Emmerich’s Keto WOE has helped me release 60lbs of fat while giving me masses of energy. No more brain fog, now I have clarity and a much more positive go get ‘em attitude. Next on my list is to get off my blood pressure and GERD meds. This recommended Pro Biotic sounds like it would help me absorb more D3/K2. Thank you for all your wonderful info and recipes and sharing your family!

  • Jackie Wagner says:

    It might be easier to make a list of how Keto hasn’t benefited me; it might be zero, except for all the clean-up and pots and pans I have to scrubs, lol.

    Seriously, since number tend to impress, I’ve lost 95 lbs since 2019; gained a huge amount of knowledge about my body, what works for me; I exercise on a regular basis, rekindled my love of cooking and trying new foods, many of my health issues literally cleared up, and I now have so much more energy and enjoy each new day instead of dreading it.

    And I found great groups of lively, involved people who share this with me!

    Lastly, I’ve come to appreciate this way of life and the lovely dedicated couple who devote so much time and energy to help me find the tools to succeed. Thank you, Maria and Craig, for all you do; you’ve enabled me to change my life for the better!

    • Kari says:

      Keto has allowed me to keep my ability to take care of my family despite undiagnosed lyme disease. The doctors would narrow down what was not wrong with me, and said while your not diabetic don’t eat sugar if it makes you sick. 5 years later I have a name and I know keto got me this far. And Maria’s recipes gave me back birthday cake and donut Sunday occasionally. So thankful!

  • Abbey says:

    Keto is so beneficial for me, hormones have been regulated (no more PMS!), gut health restored, energy renewed daily with quality sleep. I love this lifestyle!

  • Louise Fitzgerald says:

    I have struggled to ‘decide’ what is the best eating plan to follow forever. I was always worried that Keto was too limiting and not great for your gut. This gives me so much reassurance!

  • Natasha says:

    Keto has completely changed my life and how I choose to eat food. I researched and read everything I could on keto for a year before I jumped on the keto wagon and it has truly been the best decision I’ve ever made for ME. I’ve been strict keto for 2 years and can’t imagine ever going back to the old way of eating. I’m doing Maria’s cleanse now and I am so happy with the results that I am having and excited for the new meals and recipes.

  • Diane Eaton says:

    I am still struggling with actually sticking to the keto diet. I already feel so much better just by eliminating (trying to, anyway) processed carbs. Things just keep popping up in my life that make it so easy for me to revert back to old habits. It’s a work in progress, for sure.

  • Dana Addis says:

    Oh how do I list the many many benefits in one comment box without bogging down your server? Haha! I will say since starting the Keto WOE two years ago, I have gained such a true understanding of how my body reacts to different foods and I no longer eat just to eat. My mindset has changed from “I’m hungry” to “my body needs fuel”.

  • Joy Argento says:

    I have less pain on keto.

  • Dana says:

    Keto has cured life-long migraines and headaches since childhood GERD (off meds), no more bizarre, transient aches, pains and tingling. My husband is also free of life-long migraines, and off meds for Eosinophilic Esophagitis – not one flare-up!!! So amazing !

  • Abby Myers says:

    Keto has been a life changer & game changer completely! Most importantly it has educated me to make the wisest and best choices I can for my body. It has helped me get my pre-diabetic numbers under control and taught me how to manage my health!!! Thank you Maria & Craig!!

  • Heather says:

    Keto-it’s like aging in reverse. I feel like I went back in time 10 years. More energy and I just feel good! I have learned to love food again and not be afraid of eating. I now know what is healthy and what is not! Thank you Maria & Craig!

  • Lori Jewett says:

    I have lost 70 pounds and feel like a new woman. I feel great with a ton of energy.

    Keto has helped eliminate inflammation and my acne is improving. I still have a ways to go but I’m seeing such a difference and love the energy I feel!

  • Patricia Duran says:

    I’m getting more comfortable and confident in my own skin. I have so much more energy, way less depression and mood issues. I finally feel like I have my life back

  • Christina says:

    Keto has helped me regulate my thyroid and lower my medication dosage. I’ve also been able to get off of other medications. I’ve lost weight, which in turn has boosted my confidence and given me more energy. After two years, I still can’t wait to see what other benefits await me.

  • Heidie says:

    Eating Keto has helped with all the inflammation in my joints! My knee was so swollen, my dr sent me to physical therapy, but they couldn’t figure out why my knee was so swollen. Well once I cut out all grain, the swelling went away, and there is no more pain. I find if I eat grain, my knee swells right back up! This is a life style I am learning.

  • Ida says:

    I yo-yo dieted for all of my adult life until I found Maria and keto. I always thought I needed to control calories in/calories out to lost weight but I never thought about what those calories were as long as I hit that magic number every day – and I was always hungry and moody. Keto is my forever way of eating now. All my health markers are improved. I feel better. I move more. I am healthier for it. Thank you!

  • Heather says:

    It has gotten me off so many medications!

  • Kari says:

    Keto has allowed me to keep my ability to take care of my family despite undiagnosed lyme disease.

And Maria’s recipes gave me back birthday cake and donut Sunday occasionally. So thankful!

  • Robert Posadas says:

    Keto has helped both my wife & I with many issues. It helped me with weight loss & management, as well as severe seasonal allergies, & many other conditions. It helped my wife with severe depression (over 45 yrs of suffering from severe debilitating depression). Severe malnutrition as a child, chronic & severe digestive issues, & chronic illnesses from severely low immune system (high fevers, flus, severe throat, eye, & skin infections, & other respiratory viruses & infections. We are so thankful for all your work.

  • Dusty says:

    I have many health issues that I am trying to use keto for: hashimotis, celiac, diverticulitis, IBS C etc. If it wasn’t for the Keto options & info I probably wouldn’t be eating right or at all due to too many food allergies & sensitivities. Thank you Maria for all your recipes & Inspiration. You are a blessing to us all. I would like to be considered for all of your giveaways. I could seriously use some of the supplements to help me with digestion & energy. Please & Ty….

    Keto has helped me to lose weight and gain more energy!!! I was losing my running miles, chalked it up to getting old. But the miles are coming back, slowly, but I am up to 3 miles again

    • Lydia Hedges says:

      My keto journey started again in November 2020 as a result of my PCP telling me that if I didn’t change my diet from the SAD diet, it would literally kill me. He said, “you’ve got to go low carb if you want to be around a long time”. Since our discussion in late October, I decided to get back on the wagon & joined dietdoctor.com to have pre-made diet plans each week. I then found Dr. Eric Westman & Amy Berger & I’m happy to say, following the AYLA diet, I’ve brought my grand total to 33# list (still have about 70# more to go). I’m starting to look better, my skin, hair and nails are strong & clear and my chronic pain is starting to disappear.
      I found you Maria & Craig through Dr. Westman’s FB page and the low carb MD podcast. My plans are to get my daughters on board with this way of life too.
      I was just diagnosed with diverticulitis & keto is keeping my body in check and out of that pain currently. Thanks for all of the education you’re giving us Maria!

  • Lisa says:

    The Keto diet is helping me recover from the damage of eating “plant-based” for 6 years! I severely messed up my hormones, had horrible brain fog, kept injuring myself when I played sports and had achy joints. My brain feels so much better!!!!

  • Judith L Kalley says:

    Just starting out with your Keto. Have been dirty and lazy keto for a while but got your comfort foods cookbook and getting to dig in. Best part of Keto is the normalizwd blood sugars.

  • Angie Goff says:

    I’m just getting started…I’m a serious carb and sugar addict. I bought a couple of your books and am hoping to lose weight, get rid of my brain fog, and just feel better overall! Thanks for what you do! ❤️
