This is my (frustrating and confusing) personal IBS journey:

When I was in university I struggled with my studies; I never loved my major but I was trying to be the best I could be and I pushed myself to the limit.

I was in class all day, finishing projects overnight, with two part-time jobs, hardly sleeping and not eating properly.

I started having excruciating stomach pains that would not go away no matter what I tried. It hurt if I ate, if I didn’t eat, if I was able to go to the bathroom and if I wasn’t. 

It hurt all day and all night and I was so bloated sometimes I would look like I was pregnant.

I didn’t see a way to change my lifestyle and even after my diagnosis my doctors never asked me to. They gave me medication for my IBS that flared up my GERD and medicine for my GERD that flared up my IBS.

The specialist told me I should just eat more bran even though I knew it made my pain worse. He told me I just needed to double my intake so I did because he was a specialist and he told me to.

His advice caused me to double over in excruciating pain in the middle of the subway station one morning and there and then I realized that Western medicine had no solution and it was up to ME to figure out a way to heal myself.

With no support and no guidance it took many months of trial and error.

After deeply examining my diet and finding a way to manage my stress I started to recover, but even then I still didn’t understand the mechanisms behind my disease. I found that in times of major emotional stress the symptoms would return.

I’d resolved my condition on my own but I still had questions. And no one had answered the most important ones:

  • Why did this happen to me and not someone else?
  • What if it’s not gone forever and comes back unexpectedly?
  • How can I make sure it’s gone for good?

  • How can I make sure it’s gone for good?

Although my symptoms didn’t return, I never fully gained clarity any of those questions until years later, after making a bold career change:

I followed my passion for helping people and decided to study Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Acupuncture. The more I learned, the more this ancient system made sense and I FINALLY understood the mechanisms behind my digestive diseases. 

My questions were answered and I finally felt confident – armed with usable knowledge about how to correct and prevent my attacks and digestive diseases in general!

I’ve been pain-free for almost 15 years and I can’t actually remember the last time I experienced a major flareup.

  • I enjoy a wide variety of foods, confident that they won’t wreak havoc on my gut
  • I love going out to share meals with friends & family
  • I live my life fully and am focused on being at my best and on helping other amazing people, instead being stuck with my gut pain
  • I am in tune with my body, mind and spirit and take regular care of them so they take care of me!
