I'm an advocate for healthy living and customizing an individualized diet to each person's Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis (Inflammatory Bowel Disease). In my blog, I explore natural healing techniques, including yoga, meditation, acupuncture, diet, supplements, stress management, and massage. I was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease at the age of 13, back in 1993. I was sent from a doctor's office immediately to the hospital, where I received back-to-back blood transfusions due to an alarming hemoglobin level of 4. Twenty+ years later I challenge myself every day to live life larger than my disease, to be guided by my faith and a god-send doctor who has treated me throughout.
