A comprehensive plan for overcoming chronic illness, stress, and personal setbacks
For more than 20 years, Jim Curtis battled a mysterious chronic illness. He grew accustomed to living in pain, denial, and despair. But when traditional medical therapies didn’t help, he sought answers elsewhere. He traveled the world and met a group of extraordinary people he calls The Stimulati—and what he learned from them ultimately changed his life.
In The Stimulati Experience, Jim outlines his own incredible journey, as well as his step-by-step program to overcome pain, setback, and struggle to transform your life into one filled with better health, freedom, joy, strength, and purpose. Whether you suffer from a chronic illness, anxiety, or depression, you’ll learn how to achieve better health and an abundance of happiness. Featuring a motivational and inspiring foreword by New York Times bestselling author Gabrielle Bernstein, The Stimulati Experience distills Jim’s unique nine-step program created from his own personal experience, The Stimulati themselves, and lessons he has learned from creating the world’s leading digital health platforms.
Using grounded scientific research, practical takeaways, insightful evaluations, and his own personal stories, Jim takes you on a journey of self-discovery so that you can radically improve your life. The Stimulati Experience is your ultimate guide to optimal health of the body and mind.

Jim Curtis’ brave new book artfully explains this path, and gives readers the tools they need for identifying what’s holding them back from getting better.”
