Crohn’s and Colitis are both inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). They share very similar symptoms such as diarrhea, abdominal cramps, pain, and constipation. Nearly 1.6 million Americans are affected by IBD.
At the young age of 23, I was woken up to the fact of how unhealthy my day to day habits were when I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease.
I lived the normal post college life of eating and drinking excessively cheap food and beer. Life was great except I would have ridiculous stomach pains almost every day.
I finally saw a doctor and was diagnosed with Crohn's disease. Doctors wanted to put me on steroids and a variety of drugs coming to the conclusion they didn't work.
After being hospitalized for three days due to a bowel obstruction, I learned the doctors could only help so much.
I took matters into my own hands. I learned cleaning products bought at the store has direct correlation to the digestive tract, what I put in my body effects every aspect of my day, and I am the only one who can decide what I need.
I removed all my cleaning products and switched to Shaklee's, cut gluten out completely, and started nourishing my body with healthy food, and supplementing with pharmaceutical grade supplements. Shaklee has helped me gain control back of life.
