I’m so glad that you’re here because I know how frustrated you’ve been with what seems like unending “stomach problems.”
I too experienced 15+ years of unresolved IBS-D issues that I thought were normal… until fatigue overwhelmed my life making it near impossible to wake up even after sleeping 11 hours.
Doctors told me nothing was wrong. Maybe I needed more B vitamins or maybe I should stop exercising… those were their best ideas because my blood work looked fine.
Thankfully I found someone who believed me that the constant gas and diarrhea weren’t just “stomach problems”… and actually listened to what I said in order to piece together what was ACTUALLY going on.
Through that process, I discovered that my exhaustion, scaly red skin rashes, getting sick every six weeks, and daily headaches were actually connected to my explosive diarrhea, horrid-smelling gas, and bloating.
So know that when I say “I’ve been in your shoes,” I literally mean it. My personal journey has given me a deep level of compassion and empathy for what you’re going through.
And that’s what drove me to become a clinical nutritionist… to help others who truly want to feel better (and get back to pooping like a normal person!).
