Remission. my route for remission is definitely not easy and it take a lot of work and discipline.
I do not have all the answers and still get myself in to flares but I have come a LONGGGG WAY.
I’ve been fighting* UC since I was 17 [since 2004] and have found my ‘cure’ with the foods that I eat, how I manage my stress, exercise and by keeping out the toxins – to the best of my control. I hate drugs but still believe that there is a time and place for them.
*I make a conscious effort to never say ‘I’ve been suffering from UC’. I’m a strong believer in the law of attraction and that like attracts like. throw the word suffering out there and suffering is what you get. #foodforthought ?
For anyone out there fighting this horrific disease and feeling helpless, I am here to tell you that there is hope. regardless of a ‘cure’ being found. we can cure ourselves.

There are many reasons this blog exists…
to share and inspire and give hope to others. [it really is possible to live a great story despite having ulcerative colitis. true story!!]
I hold myself accountable (to a degree) in keeping myself out of flares.
my three pillars to stay in remission are STRESS MANAGEMENT, DIET, and EXERCISE.
more to come. but in the meantime…
don’t ever give up on hope and healing.
