Natural Health Expert Jordan Rubin

Jordan Rubin is regarded by many as the most respected and beloved natural health expert in America. His personal account of his battle and triumph over Crohn’s disease has resonated with millions around the world and is one of the most dramatic natural health stories ever told. A successful entrepreneur, New York Times best-selling author, international motivational speaker and television personality, Jordan’s message of health and wellness is a beacon to the masses who are looking for answers to help take control of their health.

The Jordan Rubin Story

As a child, Jordan’s health was excellent, thanks to his parents. His father was a naturopath trained in alternative medicine and his mother served up a steady diet of organic whole foods and healthy snacks. It wasn’t until Jordan was 19 years old and a freshman at Florida State University that his health suddenly deteriorated with an alarming weight loss of 80 pounds. He experienced excruciating digestive problems, pain and nausea before he was ultimately diagnosed with Crohn’s disease, a supposedly incurable chronic illness that wreaks havoc on the immune system. Wheelchair-bound and wasting away, Jordan weighed only 104 pounds when one doctor’s grim diagnosis was that he did not expect him to live much longer because it was the worst case of Crohn’s he had ever seen.

Fortunately, Jordan and his family were determined and sought more than 70 alternative nutritional therapies throughout the world after conventional medicine and numerous hospitalizations failed. His quest for answers concluded with a visit to a California nutritionist who simply told him he was not healthy because he was not following God’s health plan.

Inspired by this advice, Jordan voraciously studied hundreds of biblical references about living a healthy lifestyle. He changed his diet to whole foods consumed in biblical times: raw, organically grown whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and fermented dairy, grass fed beef and poultry. He also added a daily regimen of probiotics teeming with beneficial bacteria in soil based organisms. After gaining 29 pounds in 40 days, Jordan knew he was finally on the right track. By his 21st birthday he was tipping the scales at more than 180 pounds, free of the digestive problems that had plagued him for years, and ready to reclaim his life.

Empowering Extraordinary Health

About Jordan Rubin | The Maker's Diet Revolution (2)

Because Jordan was deeply moved by his restored health, he promised he would dedicate the rest of his life to sharing his health wisdom with the rest of the world and to transforming the health of the nation one life at a time. He and his wife, Nicki, wanted to provide others with the educational resources and whole food supplements that spurred Jordan’s recovery, so in 1999 they founded Garden of Life, now a leading whole foods nutrition company. The company’s innovative products and commitment to efficacy quickly resounded with health conscious consumers, and by 2004 Garden of Life was named one of the fastest growing privately held companies by Entrepreneur Magazine and Inc. 500.

As the company’s founder and CEO, Jordan spearheaded the formulation and development of more than 95 nutritional supplements, many of which are award-winning, top sellers in the Natural Products Industry. In 2009, Garden of Life was acquired by Atrium Innovations, a publicly traded Canadian-based company with global branches worldwide.

Successful Publishing Career

Determined to share his keys to extraordinary health with as many people as possible, Jordan embarked on a successful publishing career with his first two books, Patient Heal Thyself and Restoring Your Digestive Health. It was his eye-opening book, The Maker’s Diet: the 40-day health experience that will change your life forever (April 2004, Siloam) that spent a total of 47 weeks on the New York Times best seller list and remains popular today with more than 2.5 million copies in print.

In addition to The Maker’s Diet, Jordan’s 24 additional health titles include: Patient Heal Thyself, The Raw Truth, Restoring Your Digestive Health, The Great Physician’s Rx for Health and Wellness, The Great Physician’s Rx for Women’s Health, The Great Physician’s Rx for Cancer, The Great Physician’s Rx for Children’s Health and Planet Heal Thyself. In 2008 after the publication of his book Perfect Weight America, Jordan traveled all year to more than 200 cities across the nation in order to take his message about the dangers of obesity directly to people at health food stores, churches, schools, farms, and even into the homes of families willing to commit to total health makeovers.

Media Highlights

The Maker’s Diet propelled Jordan into the limelight and resulted in appearances on hundreds of radio and television programs, including Good Morning America, CNN, NBC Nightly News, FOX News, and Inside Edition. In 2004, The Food Network aired a one-hour special about Jordan and The Maker’s Diet and spotlighted a church in Atlanta where a congregation lost more than 1,500 pounds on the 40-day program. Jordan’s compelling story of his recovery from Crohn’s disease captured the interest of Christian and secular audiences alike, and has been featured in many national publications such as Time, Newsweek, The New York Times, Reader’s Digest, People, Woman’s World, The Wall Street Journal, GQ, First for Women, Women’s Health, and Martha Stewart Living.

Jordan’s Beyond Organic ranch is farmed in accordance with his biblical-based principles and the production practices detailed in his book, Living Beyond Organic. The Beyond Organic ranches are fully operational and provide many jobs for people in an economically depressed region of the Ozarks. Jordan’s mission is to use every square inch of the ranches to help provide high quality, nutrient dense foods to the surrounding communities as well as the entire nation and to build an orphanage for children in the near future.

In 2015, Jordan launched Heal the Planet Farm, a 350-acre Organic Permaculture Farm and Regenerative Retreat Center located within the 4,000-acre Beyond Organic Ranch. Heal the Planet Farm is designed to maximize nature and create agricultural abundance, with advanced training certifications available in the areas of Permaculture, Organic Farming, Polyculture and Holistic Grazing.

The Maker's Diet Revolution

In 2012, Jordan traveled to India on a mission trip with his wife and oldest son, Joshua. He saw thousands of people accept Jesus Christ as their Savior and had a vision from God about a diet plan that would transform lives in 10 days. The vision inspired him to write The Maker's Diet Revolution, the long awaited sequel to The Maker's Diet.
