Hello, my name is Ingrid Dick. In 2013, my world turned upside down when I was diagnosed with an extremely rare auto immune disease called Cronkhite-Canada Syndrome (CCS).
CCS is a rare type of Inflammatory Bowel Disease, with many similarities to Crohn's disease, but with an underlying polyposis syndrome. It effects the entire GI tract, and is often fatal.
My doctors feared that I would not survive. Today, I am not only surviving, but I am thriving. I have moved beyond remission, reversed my disease, and live completely free of those debilitating symptoms.
Whilst I completely recognize that medications, specifically immune suppressants and biologic drugs saved my life, I never really accepted that they were a life sentence. For many patients, I believe that transitioning off these drugs, and following a low carb, inflammatory-reducing diet, along with stress management and exercise, can be a realistic option for obtaining and maintaining long term remission.
Always consult with your doctor before making any changes to your current regimen.
As such, my training and current practice focuses on an integrative and wholistic approach to health coaching. Sometimes, medical intervention including surgery and drugs, are necessary. It's all about finding a balance that's right for you. I can help with that.
Learn how you can manage your own disease, lose weight, and achieve your long term health goals. I will be here for your every step of the way.
