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.
Ingrid completed her training with the internationally renowned Institute for Integrative Health & Nutrition (IIN), is certified by the National Board for Health & Wellness Coaches (NBC-HWC), and received her Ayurveda certification from Kerala Ayurveda Academy. She has a thriving online coaching business, and currently has openings for new clients who are ready to embark on their own health transformation journey.
Outside of the passion of coaching, Ingrid loves to cook, enjoys wine tasting, is an avid jet setter, an obsessive reader of self help books and crime fiction, and loves pilates and stand up paddle boarding. She has been married to Chris for 23 years, has two charming teenagers, and two beloved rescue dogs. She is an Australian transplant living in the San Fransisco Bay Area, but also spends as much time as possible in her mountain lodge in the Sierra Nevadas.
