Are you experiencing
hair-loss or thinning
food or chemical intolerance
lower back pain
Any of these sound familiar? You are definitely not alone. There are literally thousands of people struggling with many of these same issues. Interstitial cystitis and chronic health conditions go hand in hand because the dysfunction is widespread. Unfortunately, these conditions are frequently missed by doctors. In order to address IC head-on, you will need to identify where the dysfunction is occurring and seek to restore balance to both the bladder and the guts microbiome. Restoring overall balance to the body can be done by removing inflammatory causing foods from your diet, learning to manage your stress, treating infections and pelvic floor dysfunction, reducing your toxic burden, using high-quality supplements to support any imbalances in the body, and by addressing genetic variants that are affecting methylation.
If you are looking for answers you have come to the right place. Author Elisabeth Yaotani began experiencing many of these symptoms after her diagnosis of Interstitial Cystitis in 2006. She spent more than a decade trying to manage her symptoms, but inevitably her health grew worse. Her life was defined by pain and disability.
It wasn’t until Elisabeth made diet and lifestyle changes that her symptoms began to lessen. Intrigued by the idea that perhaps she had more control over her health than she realized, she began to research the role that genetics, inflammation and immunity, proper supplementation, diet, and even overall lifestyle play in an individual’s wellbeing. Within months of implementing changes, her flares became rare, and she was able to return to a pain-free life. Simultaneously, other chronic health problems improved one-by-one, until finally, she got her life back.
Yaotani found solutions that WORKED and even reversed the worst of her IC symptoms. Since then, she has used her time and knowledge to help others overcome the challenges of IC and autoimmunity.
In How I Got My Life Back, Yaotani collaborated with integrative doctor Patricia Deckert, D.O., naturopathic doctor Cassie Jones, N.M.D, and integrative and functional nutritionist Brianne Thornton, MS, RD. Yaotani has provided a comprehensive guide that will not only give you the information and insight but a blueprint so that you can begin working toward addressing IC and autoimmunity head-on.
