Everything was going great in recovery until...I got sick. Really sick.
By age 29, I joined the 60% of Americans that have a chronic condition. Doctors diagnosed me with Colitis, Osteoporosis, Hashimoto’s, Lupus, Diabetes, Amennorhea, Asthma, Migraines, Anemia, Celiac Disease, Mold Illness, Mast Cell Activation Syndrome, Lyme Disease...just to name a few things.
Both my eating disorder, years of conventional treatment and chronic dieting destroyed my gut health! My immune system and hormone balance was shot because of it!
I saw over 50 different “specialists” and spent $1000’s upon $1000’s of dollars on doctors who had no clue what was going on. Then of course, there was Dr. Google!
The “solution”? Take boatloads of supplements and go on a Low FODMAP, keto diet, of course! However, did you know that long term restrictive elimination diets are just as bad for your gut and health as processed foods?
I lost 15 pounds in a matter of months...was limited to only 5 to 10 foods because it’s all my body could handle.
I felt stuck… Perhaps like many of you ...
