From Pain To Passion
For over 25 years I have lived with the chronic inflammatory disease Ankylosing Spondylitis. Almost 15 of those years I lived with severe chronic pain in my entire spine, ribs, hips, and sternum. During this time there were days I could barely walk because the pain was so severe. I also struggled with severe digestive problems, chronic fatigue, and anxiety.
For 7 years I was on many pharmaceutical drugs and became dependent on painkillers. The danger of doing this, as was the case for me, is that symptoms are somewhat reduced, but the damage in the body is continuing. This is part of the reason it took me so long to make progress. I kept covering up the real problem and suppressing symptoms with drugs. I realized I was never going to get better or make progress unless I addressed the real issue in my body.
When I started to address the underlying causes of my conditions my body started to strengthen internally and my symptoms of chronic fatigue, anxiety, digestive problems, and pain were drastically reduced. Today I have been free of prescription drugs for over 10 years and I have the least amount of pain and best overall health than at any other point in my life.
Because of this transformation in my life I have become extremely passionate about helping other individuals improve their quality of life without the use of drugs and the risk of harsh side effects. Life changing results are accomplished by addressing the underlying causes of chronic inflammation at the level of the gut and the spine.
