About this blog

In June 2013,  I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. I tried the pharmaceutical route but still went into a second flare in August. I went to emergency when I was unable to manage my pain, bloody diarrhea and dehydration at home. I went on a short term of prednisone and at the same time I changed my eating habits by cutting out grains. Within days of going grain free, I was feeling better. Of course there were questions how much of it was the steroids and how much was the diet. I continued with this new found lifestyle after my course of steroids and did my first Whole30 in September.

My protocol has evolved along the way, my current lifestyle is a combination of Paleo Autoimmune Protocol with a ketogenic focus.

As time passes, I still feel the kitchen is where my healing began. However, I have now gathered some interesting techniques to supports my body's healing process, these include self care, homeopathy and essential oil. I look forward to sharing with you what has worked for me and hope I can spark some inspirations in your journey too.
