Today you’re gonna be inspired by Dane Johnson, who shares his journey of a near death experience with Crohn’s/Ulcerative Colitis.
Dane was first diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in his early 20’s and when he was 26, his symptoms got so bad that at 6’2, he dropped to 124 pounds and was told that he would have to live out the rest of his life on drugs and go through multiple surgeries or he would end up possibly losing his life.
In case you don’t know what Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative Colitis is, they are inflammatory bowel diseases that cause chronic inflammation and damage in the gastrointestinal, or the GI tract.
The GI tract is responsible for digestion of food, absorption of nutrients, and elimination of waste, and when your GI isn’t functioning right, it can cause an extreme amount of pain and be completely debilitating as Dane shares with you today.
I won’t give too much away here about Dane’s story because he deep dives in on this episode of how he hit rock bottom and what he did to turn it all around to take his life back, regain his health, and doing it all in a holistic and natural way. No drugs. No surgeries. Dane’s story to fight for his life is incredible.
Dane’s story is a testament of our power within to heal ourselves, and our ability to be the authority of our lives.
