How Low Carb Is Saving My Life

I am a 29 year old male. Growing up, my family was extremely poor. I had a steady diet of boxed/frozen dinners, sodas and sugary snacks. I have suffered from anxiety since I was very young. Depression has also been a huge problem for me for the last decade. Just a year and a half ago, I was over weight, over worked, and over stressed.

Paleo Diet for Digestive Diseases

I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in 2010 at the age of 21 years old. I have been managing my disease with diet and functional medicine since 2011. I obtained a bachelor’s degree in Public Health from Eastern Kentucky University, and a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing from the University of Kentucky. I plan on pursing a graduate degree in Primary Care Nurse Practitioner and practicing as an integrative medicine family nurse practitioner specializing in digestive disorders.
