EPISODE 375: Crohn’s & Colitis – Surviving & Thriving

Imagine a mosquito bites your arm. You scratch the bump and it grows big and red and doesn’t go away for months. You’d be panicked, right? Now, imagine that the red inflamed area is inside your gut, your small intestines, and your colon. What now? Just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not there. The long-term health impact of gastrointestinal inflammation is devastating. At the extremes, there’s Crohn’s and Colitis, but hundreds of millions of people are suffering from endocrine disruption, nutrient malabsorption, and general malaise due do this lurking problem.

My guest on this week’s show was so skinny you could see all his bones. He was drugged up and nearly dead from this hardcore bowel disease—but he fixed it. Naturally. No more medicine. Despite the odds, he’s 55 pounds heavier today and looks like a fitness model. His research is solid and his advice takes each individual into account.

What You’ll Learn:

  • What Crohn’s and Colitis are
  • How inflammation can be a silent killer
  • How epigenetics can be influenced by diet and lifestyle
  • Why some people go fruitarian and others meatatarian – who’s right?
  • How cheat days can still happen — you don’t have to be perfect
