I am a 31 year-old living in remission from UC. I have been dealing with this disease for the past eight years, and have tried numerous treatments, finally finding reprieve in eastern medicine and holistic practices.
I will preface this by saying I am NOT a doctor. I have only decided to write this in an effort to inform others and provide hope for successful healing to those who are suffering with an IBD. I share my story as I have been blessed in finding a cure for myself and feel as though I should pay it forward.
I get calls at least once per month from friends of friends of friends that have heard my story through the grapevine and are suffering with similar cases. I have spent many hours on these phone calls and figured it may be helpful to create a space where they can come read my story. I know it can be embarrassing to talk about, but I don’t feel that way and I am happy to answer any questions.
