There’s no amount of money that could repay John for what he’s done for me…

Alison, CFS for 23 years

You have given me back my life and for that I will be eternally grateful.  My Children now have a mother and my husband, a wife and that is huge


Former CFS Sufferer

This understanding means my search is over. The release of that alone has changed me so much. My relationship with my husband has been saved, and that with my children is flourishing. Out for a run, eating chocolate, a drive on the motorway, a meal out with friends, a walk to school, bubbles of joy and unexpected laughter.…gradually these things are coming about. There is no trying. Like I said, it’s simple. The Foundations of Health programme is a beautiful place to hang out and be led to the truth. To a place of quiet and calm. John and Karen are deeply knowledgeable and their immense support is strong and genuine. This has been a profoundly life-changing experience and I will never look back.

Nicky H - CFS for 25 years

I no longer feel limited or hindered by my health in doing what I want to do.  Moreover, I have already told a number of close family and friends that I consider myself to be fully healed.  In such a short amount of time and after suffering with this illness for so many years.

Ready To Find Your Healing Zone?

The Foundations of Health programme offers a new foundation for exploring healing from chronic conditions like Anxiety, Depression, CFS/ME, Lyme, Fibromyalgia, Migraines & Chronic Pain.

Our highly experienced team includes John El-Mokadem a Master Transformative Coach with 14 years experience in the field of training and coaching and Karen DiMarco a healthcare visionary transformative coach with 20 years of experience in medical and training functions.

Both Karen and John overcame their own challenges with CFS and the Foundations of Health programme was developed following their research work (in the process of submission for publication) and one to one work with other sufferers of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), fibromyalgia, anxiety, depression, chronic lyme and pain.

Our approach teaches clients about a new way of seeing illness and life that allows them to settle back down into a space where they are less stressed. According to a respected neurologist:

“…any treatment which reduces the stress response will improve chronic fatigue syndrome and many other conditions” (Professor Leslie J Findley, MD, MRCS, DRCOG, DCH, FRCP (Consultant Neurologist with Barking, Havering and Redbridge NHS Trust), speaking on BBC Radio 4 in 2007)

By helping clients settle into a deeper space of wellbeing it can help them to connect to a place where their nervous system enters a natural healing zone.

Our approach requires no tools and techniques, no diets and regimens to follow or supplements to buy. It is not designed to be a cure and it should be stressed that results vary client by client. It is also not a substitute for proper medical care. Clients are expected to maintain responsibility for their own wellbeing and should always ensure continued and proper contact and treatment with their doctors and licensed medical practitioners and adhere to their treatment protocols.

Pricing Options

We offer a range of options for you to choose from with for those wishing to go deeper with their exploration.

* IMPORTANT – the weekly video group calls are recorded for participants to review during the programme. Please note that audio only versions of these sessions will be included in future versions of the Foundations of Health Program.

“For years, I suffered from debilitating chronic pain. I saw every specialist, traditional and decidedly non-traditional, I tried every therapy, every procedure, every remedy, every medication anyone suggested. I found no relief of any kind. Quite frankly, I’d given up, and was convinced that the rest of my life would be nothing but a world of unrelenting pain. I’d become so utterly frustrated, I stopped looking for help. My wife suggested I speak with John El-Mokadem, whom she’d heard was tremendously helpful with just the sort of situation I found myself in.

I knew I could trust John right away. His gentle, warm, humorous style instantly made me feel I was with the person who could help point my life in a different direction. That was about six months ago. Today, most of my symptoms are gone or fading, and what’s left of the symptoms feel much less burdensome. Working with John allowed me to reclaim my life. The best part is, the life I feel was returned to me is much easier and more enjoyable than anything I ever experienced before. For anyone with chronic health issues, I recommend working with John with my whole heart.”

Is This A Cure?

Foundations Of Health is an educational program that is based on the research work that John and Karen have done with CFS/ME (chronic fatigue syndrome / myalgic encephalomyelitis) that yielded some excellent results.  Many of the testimonials on this page are from people who attended the research study.  Foundations of Health involves no medication / supplementation, and aims to educate participants on the profound link between the mind and the body and how a deeper understanding of the mind can help someone settle into a zone of healing, where the body is able to manage itself, it’s energy levels and it’s immune system more organically and naturally.  It will be up to you to decide what you do with the information on this program, and at all times you are responsible for your own medical care.  It’s important to emphasise that no guarantee of results is implied or offered, and that you are responsible for your health and wellbeing at all times.  The practitioners on this program are not doctors, so this program should not be seen as a substitute for proper medical care.  You must check all symptoms that are of concern with a doctor.

What days do the group calls happen and are they recorded?

The calls take place on Wednesday at 8pm GMT (12pm Pacific, 3pm Eastern, 9pm Europe).  All calls are recorded and will be placed into the private facebook group and the course training page.

Are payment plans available?

In certain cases, it may be possible to setup a payment plan.  Please contact us.

Will The Recordings Be Made Available Outside of This Foundations of Health Programme?

“I’ve just booked a holiday for June with my boyfriend….I just sat here and had an OMG moment and burst into tears. We’re having a week in the South of France and i can’t believe I’ve just put the final piece into completing my list (of things that were not possible before the study)….I’m sat here crying so much because I’m overwhelmed. Thank You! … I am so grateful I think it’s just hit me suddenly…I’ve done it…I’ve got my life back”

John is a warm, caring coach with a calm and grounded approach that has allowed me to explore some deep fears and worries in a completely safe space. He has remarkable insight and sees the innate health in his clients – his certainty allowed me to open up to experiencing that wellness for myself. I would recommend John to anyone suffering with a chronic health condition, or anyone wanting a better experience of life.
