In this episode of The Healers Café, Manon Bolliger (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) with Jessica Mosiuk, about that chronically ill people sometimes need permission to let go of their illness/untangle their identity from their illness before they can heal.

Highlights from today's episode include:
It's when bacteria migrate to the small intestine, where they shouldn't be in large amounts. And so, when you eat food, they start to ferment your food. And that's why you get that extreme bloating. So, I really had to work on reducing the number of not-so-great bacteria in my small bowel, and then retraining my gut, my microbiome to tolerate those higher FODMAP foods again
I did start to identify with my illness at the time. It became part of my identity. And as I separated myself from that and started to flip the script in my mind that I was telling myself, I really saw a big shift in where things were going.

Yeah, there's no one right way to go gut health and fixing your IBS. So, if something isn't sitting right with you, voice that. Pay attention and keep in mind that it's your own journey. You don't need to be following what other people are doing.
As a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, Jessica has helped hundreds of people break free from the pain and discomfort of irritable bowel syndrome by making simple, sustainable nutrition and lifestyle changes. As someone who suffered from chronic digestive issues for years, Jessica is no stranger to the feelings of frustration and confusion that accompany functional bowel disorders. That's why working with her is more than just a meal plan: she will support, encourage and guide you back to optimal health with kindness and compassion.
Core purpose/passion: I am very passionate about simplifying the healing process for IBS sufferers because there is so much misleading information out there and it's too easy to fall into a trap of spending endless money on supplements and jumping from elimination diet to elimination diet.
