My name is Louis and I started this site to document my journey in trying to completely cure my ulcerative colitis and totally clear my skin. I’ve read a lot about health and nutrition over the years and have tried a lot of different diets, which all helped.
At 16 I was able to get off of all of my prescription medication after changing my diet. This is what got me interested in health in the first place. While I feel “ok,” I know that I’m still not at 100%. Also, I still have a few minor skin issues that I want to take care of. You can check out what I’ve tried in concerns for my skin by checking out my Youtube Channel. There’s a deep desire in me to be the healthiest version of myself possible and to live my life to the fullest.
Recently I discovered the field of functional medicine and I am now enrolled at Functional Diagnostic Nutrition to become a certified functional nutritionist. If I’m going to recommend something I want to fully understand the concepts.
My hope is that Gut Journey can help others who suffer from IBD and who are trying the Specific Carbohydrate Diet.
