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.

Saved by Fat

I have been a type 2 diabetic(T2D) for over 20 years. For the majority of that time I have followed the American Diabetic Association (ADA) guidelines. As the years went by I needed more and more medication to control the blood glucose (BG). Currently I am a 59 year old male.

Better Eating Fewer Carbs, But Best at Carnivore

This is a testimony from someone I’ve been communicating with for quite a while. Low carb wasn’t quite enough for her. “Hi Mikhaila This is my testimony. Please don’t include my name. Thanks for changing my life. I’m 28 and female. I was suffering from so many autoimmune disorders since I was a kid including eczema, horrible rashes that covers my entire body, never-ending itchiness, severe acne on my face, cystic acne on the bikini area (Hidradenitis Suppurativa), back pain, extreme Read More

My Journey Back to Health

I am a 34 year old female who has been experiencing a whole slew of seemingly unrelated issues for over 10 years. It started with fibromyalgia type symtoms and numbness in my fingers especially when I would try to go to sleep. It hurt when people touched me. Even the slightest pressure was excruciating not to mention waking up at night if I could even get to sleep in the first place with horrible pain because my hands were numb for hours or as I tried to go to sleep, I could feel them going numb. Over the years I also started getting headaches, which I almost never had until my 20s, and backaches so bad I had to adjust my back 4 to 5 times a day to get minutes if relief. I was on the verge of giving up. I couldnt imagine what 60 would feel like if 30 felt this bad.

This Modern Life…(‘s) diet is killing me

I am 35 years old, a female and there’s just a ton of swelling throughout my whole body. It is mostly localized in my uterus (my husband and I have figured out that much) and have ruled out the most normal (I say normal, because for me right now it would feel normal to have the whatever-thing that is wrong with me to actually have a name, like ulcerative colitis or chron’s. (Both of which are horrible auto-immune diseases that I am not trying to make light of.) I have this swelling that is always present, but tends not to swell AS much when I eat well; whole, balanced meals. Perhaps when our insurance situation is better we can have more access to doctors that can actually look at what is going on.
