In 2012, after months of being horribly sick, I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis which is an auto-immune disease that affects the digestive system (since the symptoms are quite unsavory, I'll let you google them at your own risk). After struggling to manage the symptoms and WAY to many rounds to steroids I started looking for more ways, ANYTHING and EVERYTHING, literally any other options, any additional options that might help alleviate my symptoms and get me back to my normal overly energetic self. I started running, doing yoga regularly, and I
found the Whole30 and clean eating in general. I also began seeing a naturopathic doctor who helped me discover my food sensitivities and bring my vitamin levels up to normal range. Now, with the help of BOTH wholistic and traditional medicine I'm able to manage the symptoms and live my best life!
As of now, there isn't much information out there on Ulcerative Colitis. So I hoping that by sharing my journey, I can help others dealing with auto-immune diseases and similar issues!

This has been the #1 game changer for me! I started seeing a wholistic medicine specialist when traditional medicine wasn't enough to keep my disease at bay. You can click below to get more info about the WMS that I saw. This is NOT a paid endorsement. I just really believe in this practice!
Before I started seeing a WMS, I started to clean up diet. A friend had told me about Whole30 and thats where I decided to start. I don't think this program is the end all be all, but it did help me discover my egg allergy and inspired me to create better eating habits!
Read more health information and tips on the blog! I try to share my experiences with foods, recipes, supplements, and doctors. I've spent years going through trial and error to find the right balance. Hopefully by sharing, I can help others find balance faster!
