warrior- a person who shows great courage, vigor, or aggressiveness
Reversing symptoms of IBS or IBD naturally does indeed take courage, vigor and an aggressive commitment. Digestive Warrior is a place where one can find the most cutting edge information on the true cause of such afflictions; science has come a long way in it's understanding of the microbiome. Just in the past 5- 10 years new information has revealed itself at a rapid pace and continues to do so. It's an exciting time! Through education and understanding of Functional Medicine philosophies alongside Oriental concepts of medicine, one can begin to discern their own unique path to reversing a digestive disorder. If, somewhere inside of you lies an instinctual curiosity as to whether or not the root cause of your condition has been properly addressed.......then you are in the right place. Intense journey's of ill health can transform us from the inside out. This site offers solutions to feeling better, to live the life you truly deserve......to thrive.
I created Digestive Warrior because I know very intimately how painful it is to struggle with a digestive disorder. Diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis at age 15, I have been no stranger to the trials and tribulations of how deeply it can effect ones life. As a dancer and yogi, I simply refused to accept pain and suffering. My entire life has been a mission of addressing my disorder in a holistic way. Yes, there were times I succumbed to drugs; these were the years that fueled the very essence of Digestivewarrior. Had I floated along in a mediocre state of health, my research, education, training and clinical practice would have never come to be. It was through deep, deep despair in hospitalizations weighing 85 lbs with the threat of my colon being removed that I began a 20 year journey of studying digestive health. I thouroughly enjoy helping those still suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Crohn's Disesae or Ulcerative Colitis recover. Sometimes you simply need someone who has been in your shoes to tell you that you absolutely can get better- to truly believe in you.
