Kristina Shares Her Own Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Experience
I worked with a naturopathic doctor who had me taking 20-30 different supplements daily and following a strict diet of organic vegetable juice, minimal grains, no meat, and vegetable fat. I was also told to do daily colonics, regular fasting, and liver cleanses. While on this program, I had my mercury fillings out. This program left me sick in bed for six weeks and with chronic intestinal pain for over five years.
I left the guidance of that naturopathic doctor to work with a registered nurse turned health consultant. She again had me taking lots of supplements and following a strict eating program. Even though I diligently followed her guidance, my irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) caused me tremendous pain every single day. After two years of working with her to attain a partial recovery, she discovered that she had cancer and died three weeks later.
These tragic experiences have led me on a path that forced me to continue to learn, to continue to figure out how to think for myself about various healing modalities, and to heal deeply.
I am proud that I didn't give up and that I held onto my belief in the healing power of my own body. I have found that the proper nutrition for my individual body, along with well-placed colon cleansing, has allowed my body to heal from not only IBS (which has included chronic constipation as well as bouts of bloody diarrhea), but also chemical sensitivities, chronic yeast infections, intense bouts of nausea, and mood imbalances. Throughout this entire process, I have believed that my body can heal without using suppressive drugs that cause other problems.
