Leaky Gut Syndrome is at the top of many gut-related conversations these days.
You will heal. I will help.
No matter where you are or how you got sick, you must know that things can change. But first, if you are self-diagnosing yourself, you must stop.
As I was getting ready to be discharged from the ER a couple weeks back, I asked the doctor, “So what did you find to be the cause?” He replied, “We don’t know.” He then continued, “I have ordered you a couple of prescriptions to pick up.”
I replied, “But you just told me you don’t know what’s wrong with me. I don’t understand how you can give me a prescription for something I might not even have?” He responded, “We think it’s one of a couple things, so we gave the prescription for both, just in case.”
I never went to pick up the prescriptions because when I reviewed the paperwork and what they diagnosed me with, I laughed. They just guessed.
I confirmed the denial of the prescription and diagnosis with my doctor.
Educated guesses do not suffice. Popping pills and following “plans” without accurate information is more damaging than helpful.
I know because I’ve lived it.
And every single day, I am asked,
How do I know if I have SIBO, Adrenal Fatigue, Colitis, Celiac, etc.?
My answer is now very simple, “You are diagnosed with it.” Simple to say, hard to understand. I get it.
I have learned more in these past few months about my health than I have in the past 10 years.
I know what happened, and I know what lead to my ultimate demise.
I am learning (and trying to now embrace) that it’s not about where we started out, but how we grow and ultimately change for the better, in order to get better.
No matter where you started or how you got sick, know that the circumstances can change, that you can get better and of course, that I am always here to listen.
To learn more, grab my 286-page e-book, The Gutsy Girl’s Bible: an approach to healing the gut, 3.0.
Someone reaches out and asks me about my healing progress almost daily. So I put together my SIBO, Adrenal Fatigue and Autoimmune update for you today.
