Patient Leader

At the age of 31 I was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease and IBS. I took medication (20+ pills a day) for about 5 years. I decided one day to try a 20 juicing challenge and my symptoms improved over this time. I decided to continue to juice 1x per day and go gluten and dairy free. I gradually got off of all medication and my symptoms still improved. I decided to create www.juicing4crohns.com to share what I had done with the world. The blog is filled with recipes, information about diet and much much more! I am now approaching my 11th month of daily juicing and my 11th month of begin medicine free!

I am nominating Nick Hayden because he has truly changed his health by making dietary changes and juicing. I love his juice recipes, his research, and how he walks you through his regime. He is passionate about getting the message out to others suffering with Crohn's. I wish I had his blog 20 years ago when I was diagnosed.  — Tracey
