Okay, so I finished @thefityogitrainer by @yogoskenz a few days ago and I’ve been debating whether or not I should post my BEFØRE & AFTËR pics. 🙈 I’m still unsure how I feel about putting my body on social media public display like this, but I’m going for it- just to express how amazed I am with the results from #thefityogitrainer 4-week program! It may seem like a very small physical change but for *ME* it’s pretty significant! For how far I’ve come in the past 4+ years since being diagnosed with #crohnsdisease - this was MĀJŌR that my body was able to complete this! 💪🏽 And, although it was NOT easy, it felt fan-freakin-tastic, mind and body!! 😃🙌🏽 〰️Take a peek ⏩

Do you know the effect of nutrition on your intestinal complaints?
_
In 2015, I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease. Stubborn as I am, I deliberately chose to try it without medication and went my own way. By doing a lot of research and using my own body as an experiment, I succeeded in developing a lifestyle with which I live completely pain- and complaint-free. To share this success with the world, I founded Crohnproof.
 _
I have expanded my own experience with the study orthomolecular Nutrition expert where I have specialized in counseling people with chronic bowel disease. Many people have preceded you with wonderful results.

Here I am pulling a bizarre face and waiting for Vedolizumab infusion number 15. Aside from some mild irritation at being told to go to the wrong ward on the other side of the building. I'm feeling pretty good today. (Edit) I did feel ok till a few minutes after the needle came out, now I feel like I've been hit by a truck. 
Stay strong spoonies 💜

Another day, another hospital appointment, another goal reached!!! Disease free, medication free and pain free.... all good besides the stinking lurgy monster hanging around ✔️✔️✔️ #timetocelebrate #crohnsdisease #nocolonstillrollin #ileostomy #ibdwarrior #keepbelieving #positivity #timetobookaholiday
I’m really happy and excited to announce that after many years of searching, luck has finally hit me and I have found my half-sister, whom I haven’t seen or spoke to for over 20 years and I thought for this throwback Thursday, I’d share some old pics of her and I together along with our father and her mom. My dad was the only link I had to connect with her but after he passed away in 1996, the link I had with her was lost. In 2002 when I started doing my family history on Ancestry.com, I did my utmost to try and find her but to no avail. As the years went by, I would feel the desire to keep trying despite coming to numerous dead ends. With the recent AncestryDNA test I took and sharing my family tree with y’all here on Instagram, I felt that spark to try and find her again. This time was a major success as I have found her after all these years this past Sunday! @elisakresch Sis, I can’t tell you how much I have missed you! You have two cousins who can’t wait to meet you as well and I hope we can meet up soon and reconnect after all these years 😃🤗❤️❤️❤️

•SWEET TREAT ❤• Buckwheat pancakes topped with rasberries & maple syrup 👌.
♡
Ingredients:
Buckwheat flour
Coco quench coconut milk
RAW vanilla lucuma protein powder
Cinammon powder
Rasberries 
Maple syrup *all organic ♡
Method: 
Hmmm so I didnt EXACTLY measure this one. I put about 1.5 cups of buckwheat flour in a bowl. Added 1 tblsp of protein powder & a dash of cinammon. Then I added a fair bit of milk but really slowly because I wanted to review the thickness. My aim was to make thin pancakes so I made sure the mixture was quite "runny". I heated up a non stick pan, put some coconut oil in the pan on medium heat then spooned the pancake mix into the pan. Cooked the pancakes & added rasberries & maple syrup. Yum yum so good..would have really topped it with some coconut yoghurt or coco icecream 😍🤗🤔. ♡

I’m curious.... does anyone have food allergies that manifest as dysphagia (difficulty swallowing)?.
.
Last fall I began having random episodes of this feeling of my throat swelling and difficulty swallowing after eating. My heart rate went up and I felt like my chest was heavy. After A few events I finally went to the ER and after a battery of tests was told that it was probably anxiety. A few days later It happened again and I wondered if it was acid reflux, so I took some Zantac that I had at home (which is a histamine h2 blocker). My symptoms improved so I thought maybe I had acid reflux. During my last colonoscopy and upper endoscopy I had a little device implanted in my throat which lasted 48 hours and tracked my acid levels. The report showed slightly elevated acid but nothing to have concerns about. What is weird is that I’ve never had the traditional “burning” sensations and that Zantac always seems to help only a little. .
For the past 8-9 months I’ve continued to have random episodes of dysphagia, trying acid reflux meds and really not getting any relief. One day last week I had an almond flour breakfast cookie, later some PB on an apple and later in the day had chocolate covered almonds. My dysphagia was crazy bad and Zantac really didn’t touch it. Then when I began to piece the past year together I realized my reactions were mostly happening after eating nuts or eating out. I began to think that maybe I have a good sensitivity or allergy and that’s why a H2 blocker might be giving me a little bit of relief. I’ve eliminated nuts as much as possible over the past few days and my dysphagia is minimal and my mini flare has really improved! I had totally solid 💩 with zero blood this morning. Still having occasional pains but so much improvement! I’ve made an appointment to discuss food allergies with my allergist next week (along with some environmental asthma I’ve been having with this crazy wildfire smoke we have in the PNW). .
But I really want to know if anyone had similar reactions to foods!?! Please share your experiences!

Oh my goodness 😮 has anyone tried the Velvet Latte from @nutraorganics ??? It’s delicious 😋

It contains a beetroot chai infusion that makes it that vibrant pink colour. It’s naturally sweet, with subtle spice and even includes my favourite Turmeric spice 👌👌

It’s packed full of antioxidants, boosts energy and reduces inflammation, perfect for us autoimmune warriors 👍💪 #treatmehealthy #turmeric #nutraorganics #organic #latte #unicorn #pink #beetrootlatte #beetroot #autoimmunedisease #ibd #ibdwarrior #crohns #crohnswarrior #antiinflammatory #chai #ayurvedic #zen #immuneboosting #spoonielife #foodblogger #healthblogger #detox #keto

I have lacked in my post recently because we found out we are expecting!! 😍 This baby was not planned but with our infertility history, and 3 years of NTNP we are feeling very blessed! We will continue our debt free journey. I also plan to workout and eat healthy my entire pregnancy! My fellow IBD warriors this will be my second Jpouch Baby! I am thinking of starting a YouTube channel just to share my experiences of infertility/Jpouch pregnancies in hopes to help all of you one day! ❤️ #ibd #ibdwarrior #pregnancyannouncement #babynumber2 #expecting #pregnant #momlife #pregnancy #baby #jpouch #ibdpregnancy #jpouchpregnancy #jpouch #jpoucher #healthy #weightlossjourney #fitness #healthypregnancy #infertility #inferilityawareness #miraclebaby #mamabear #happiness #debtfreecommunity #debtsnowball #debtfreejourney #daveramsey #ibdawareness #ibdmom

So many of us will know @kristenschronicles and her story. You’re an inspiration, we feel so lucky that you share your journey💜. We all learn and grow here, but it’s amazing to see your level of strength - on your good days, bad days, and everything in between. Sending every positive thought your way - Thank you for everything you do!
-
And this little shoutout is also here because, as you recover and move into your next phase...I did want to give you the credit for these products🙂.
-
I planned to change to more natural products for a long time. I switched to @renpure for shampoo/conditioner. Much more affordable than I was expecting! I hope it’ll be possible for my hair to get to a better place.
I use @vitalproteins collagen in my smoothies - Looking forward to trying more of their products👌. Thanks for reading my pre-bedtime thoughts 😴.

Progress takes a ton of time, effort, & consistency. I’ve been super consistent in my workouts this past year. This summer I’ve especially worked on upping the weight. Something is definitely working 🤗.
•
After my transplant in 2015, I needed a lot of bed rest which was obviously understandable. But afterward, it left me with no glutes whatsoever. Here I am, three years later.. pretty proud of the progress I’ve made 🍑. ✧

Learning to knit at 5 is a team effort! Sanne is ‘driving’ the sticks while I’m in charge of the working yarn. The last time she asked me to teach her, she ended up using the needles as drum sticks....so this is progress! .

Life update: I’ve got some very active disease going on. BUT. I’m going to get Entivyo every 4 weeks to hopefully calm that down and avoid surgery. I also signed up to donate any blood, stool, biopsies, tissue- whatever to help further research IBD at Mayo Clinic!!! IM SO EXCITED ABOUT IT!! Anything to get us one step closer to the cure we all long for! #IBDwarrior #yesterdaytodaytomorrowforever

On days when I get up before the crack of dawn, I am strategic about the tasks I plan for the rest of the day.
.
Last night I didn’t sleep well at all. I was up every hour or so and now I am feeling that. I tweaked something in my back again and I think that may be contributing.
.
But when you know you’ll be tired, less focused, sore or antsy, you should do things that suit.
.
Today was the perfect day to get my nails done and visit with my best friend. They are fierce and I freaking love you, @beauty.bycarrie 💅
.
And then I did some shopping - new protocol from my naturopathic doctor to address new (fun!) issues with my skin and hormones. It really is a journey. Fix the stomach, uncover a whole host of other problems.
.
But the point is - you can plan out when it is best for you to be nose down and grinding, and when you know you’ll be too tired for heavy work. Just be smart about it.
.
And know that if you neglect your own health (sorta like I did), you will not be productive anyway.
.
So take care of you for a day.
.
Get your nails done.
.
Visit with your bestie.
.
Buy the probiotics and flax seed.
.
Get to bed early.
.
Give yourself permission to rest.
.

No sugar but it has a sweet taste because he put 3 figs, radish, and cabbage instead of putting sugar or another kind of sweetener.

🔴FELLOW FIBROMY'GODTHATHURTS'ALGIA FOLLOWEES🔴

I need to pick your brains, if I may. 
So, is this the deal? 
I have one day of normal routine activity, then am left with excruciating joint pain, total exhaustion and rendered totally useless for the next two days?? Is this it?  Does it get better than this?  Does it normally come in peaks and troughs of tiredness and pain? 
What causes you to flare, other than being alive?? I'm really interested to hear your experiences with fibromyalgia and any tips you may have. 
Much love to you all ❤❤

Throwback to 2 years ago!✌🏻 I’m still on vacation, so I’m living the dream through my old pictures😂 This lovely blurry one was taken with my old iPhone 4s🤭
.
I was practicing taking my blood pressure for my first ever OSCE! In med school, time goes by so fast! I feel like this was yesterday💩 I remember when I took this picture, my friend was making fun of me because I was taking a shameless selfie😂 I told her hat I was rather ‘‘documenting’’ my life😅 2 years later, still no regrets! I think that it’s always fun to have pictures to remind myself of certain times in my life🔮 I like making memories, especially in med school where time literally flies. I’m a nostalgic at heart!💜 Are you?🤔

Farewell to Hopeful

Hopeful is the name I gave my IV catheter. In January, I was put on total parenteral nutrition, which basically means I’m being fed intravenously. I have Crohn’s disease— an inflammatory bowel disease and my doctor doesn’t want any food/waste passing through my colon. The goal is to heal ulcers in large intestine. I’m so very grateful for TPN technology.  For 8 months, Hopeful has been my constant companion, pumping nutrients through the veins, helping to keep me alive.  Shrouded in a purple backpack, she went everywhere with me: work, church, news set, movie theater, airplanes, running trails and more. When we first met, I didn’t know if we would get along. Sometimes Hopeful made me angry, a reminder of the chronic condition I’ve fought for decades. But as time went on, I got accustomed to carrying around 10 pound bag of IV liquids. Hopeful became a symbol of my struggle and success, my beacon of hope. The rhythmic hum of the IV pump lulled me into a place of calm. But at last, we must bid adieu. Hopeful is infected and hurts.  So, I will get the device removed tomorrow. The plan is to start enteral feedings—mostly drinking medical shakes, eventually working my way back to eating real food.  I can see the light. No word if there will be a Hopeful 02. The only certainty is that I will continue to remain positive and fight for a cure. #SonyaStrong. #crohns #TPN #CrohnsWarrior #ibdwarrior #blessed

I’m actually tethered to an IV right now (#Remicade) and awkwardly typing this with my left hand, so I’ll keep it short.
.
I ran the #bridgeofthegods 10k this past Sunday and placed first in my age group (9th by gender/35th overall) with a chip time of 51:23! The night before the race, I didn’t even think I would be able to get up early and run. I am due for iron infusions and currently undergoing all sorts of tests related to low WBCs, on top of experiencing symptoms of active inflammatory bowel disease and struggling with some micronutrient deficiencies. All this to say, it was an extremely challenging race.
.
My thoughts during the event: “Don’t pass out, don’t have a heart attack. Just keep moving. Oh, and fuck you, ulcerative colitis.”

Never not doing stuff on my phone. And no it has not affected my social skills or fed my socialmedia addiction. Its a part of who i am now. Work apps, social media, angry birds2, visits to the toilet, all equally important! 🤓

Do you guys hate the fact that phones are a necessity? -

“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment.” - Henry David Thoreau.
.
Sometimes when things aren’t quite right and our bodies frustrate us we are caught up with where we should be. Sometimes what we need to experience is the present, the little steps we can take right now to bring healing to our bodies and souls. The ability to accept and live in the present is the beginning of a life of gratitude. It’s something we can all improve upon. .
.
What helps you stay rooted in the present moment? For me, flowing with my breath, meditating and putting away my devices seem to be the biggest instruments for getting into the present moment. 🙏🏼

Hard to believe I've been doing this for almost 4 years. I used to hate this, but I've come to enjoy my time relaxing and watching Netflix while I get my remicade infusion. I have so much to thank for this drug. I've been in remission because of it and it honestly saved my life. My only side effect is knee pain and it is well worth the pay off. Fingers crossed it keeps working for a long time.
I also learned to never ever schedule another evening appointment and to stick with my afternoon appointments. I had no choice because I needed to get it sooner because I leave for vacation in a few days, but having it on a week night and trying to get up for work this morning was impossible. I couldn't sleep last night because knees were killing me, which is normal after my infusions. But I learned my lesson and will never do that again. #crohnswarrior #remicade #chronicillness

I was hanging with Dr. Tom O'Bryan this past weekend. His new book about brain health will be a good read with easy tips to reverse the damage from leaky brain. If you have leaky gut, you have leaky brain. If you have IBD. Crohns or colitis, you have leaky gut.  But first,  have you watched Betrayal yet?
It's a must watch.

Regrann from @dr.tomobryan - “Autoimmune disease isn’t one hundred different forms of disease. It’s one disease. It’s just that it affects people where they’re weakest. It hits them at their weakest point.”

Here I am again. Waiting for my Infliximab infusion.
I'm going to be honest I'm pretty disheartened about it these days. I saw my surgeon a couple of weeks ago and I can add a fissure and ulcers to the list of ailments. These are things the Infliximab is designed to target so, although it was working on some aspects it's not on others and in fact they are getting worse. The pain is quite something.
He told me he can't offer anything surgically apart from a (colostomy/ileostomy) bag and I'm not quite ready for that again. 
So here we are...ugh
Sorry for being a bit of a misery x

Day 3! So far its going good. I have to admit that I do crave pizza. Haha. I think that that’s never gonna pass. I just love pizza! The diet is very easy to follow. The only thing I really don’t like is the casein shake. It reminds me so much of the period I was sick in the hospital and they forced it on me every freaking time. Bleh. But I do take them. Proud of myself for that. Even though every time I drink them I’m gagging. But so far so good.

After all that hot weather I've finally been able to get my hot water bottle out again 😊 I've been really well and not really needed it, but last night for some reason the most horrendous nausea and abdominal pain kicked in. I strongly suspect it was my lack of fruit and veg in the past few days causing my gut to stall :/ Anyhoo, sleeping with my hottie under a thin pillow so I could lie on top of it seems to have really helped. Yay!

After all that hot weather I've finally been able to get my hot water bottle out again 😊 I've been really well and not really needed it, but last night for some reason the most horrendous nausea and abdominal pain kicked in. I strongly suspect it was my lack of fruit and veg in the past few days causing my gut to stall :/ Anyhoo, sleeping with my hottie under a thin pillow so I could lie on top of it seems to have really helped. Yay! . . . . . . . . . . #hottie  #hotwaterbottle  #spoonietricks  #polkadots  #cosy  #warm  #nearlyautumn  #spoonie  #spoonielife  #spooniewarrior  #chronicillness  #chronicwellness  #chronichealth  #health  #wellbeing  #invisibleillness  #butyoudontlooksick  #chronicpain  #chronicfatigue  #fatigue  #colitis  #IBD  #IBDWarrior  #colitiscare  #mindfulness  #mindful 
🇬🇧Below. Paleo/AIP on the road!🚂
På tåget för 2 dagars mässjobb på Stockholm Fashion District. Jag har varit uppe sen 04,45 och det gäller att grunda bra för att orka de långa dagarna som kommer. Och av erfarenhet kan jag berätta att mässmat inte är den bästa🤮. Speciellt inte om man har vissa restriktioner. Jag förväntar mig att kunna hitta te, vatten och möjligen sallad. Annars finns det mest mackor…😔
Så i vanlig ordning bär jag med mig mer mat än packning! 😊
Tågfrukosten idag blev matiga tekakor med prosciutto🥓, bolón de verde 🍌(kokbanandumplings AIP!), kokosyoghurt 🥥med tranbär och chashewnötter och te☕️. Nu står jag mig definitivt till lunch.
Jag har också packat kokta ägg, mer och annat bröd, vildmarksgratäng, iste, nötter, frukt och mer av allt jag åt till frukost. Jag lär inte svälta. 
Jag har definitivt lärt mig det här året att det funkar bra att resa och äta Paleo/aip 🚂🛥🛩. Men jag har inte lärt mig packa med måtta. 🤷🏻‍♀️

🇬🇧I’m on the train to Stockholm to work a fair at Stockholm Fashion District. I’ve been up since 04,45 and had this for brekkie. 🍞🥓Paleobread with prosciutto, 🍌bolón de verde (plantain dumblings AIP!) 🥥coconut yoghurt with dry berries and cashews. And tea☕️. As always, I’m carrying more food than regular luggage.🤷🏻‍♀️ I think I will survive these 2 days. 😊

Morning heroes 😘
I was awake really early with stomach pain so I thought I'd jump in the shower, which I should have done last night but was too tired. Once I got in the shower, I found that I'd majorly overestimated my energy so ended up just sitting in the bath, washing my hair 😅
At least I'll make it to work in time! 😁

It is amazing what a little Prednisone and a lot of rest and love can do! This time last week we were getting discharged from @houstonmethodist after spending 6 nights there with a mini-flare in my small intestine. Now I’m wishing I was back in San Antonio eating an entire basket of bread at @thegrill_leonsprings and worshiping at @crossmountainchurch!
