My name is Steven Root and I am a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach with a specialization in gut health. I have personal experience in healing from Ulcerative Colitis naturally, as well as several other digestive disorders. My journey into health and wellness started in 2006 when I was diagnosed with UC (pancolitis for anyone well versed in IBD). Being told you have a terminal illness when you’re 19 years old in your first year of university is not, shall we say, fun. I spent the following years self medicating through diet and doing everything I could to avoid going down the route of traditional medicine, because I didn’t believe that steroids and other immunosuppressive drugs were the answer. My Ulcerative Colitis created other issues for me along the way, including GERD (heartburn), silent reflux, constipation, trouble sleeping, the list goes on. I was also diagnosed with Asthma as child.
The Good News? I am symptom free and I’ve been medication free for 12 of the 14 years that I’ve been diagnosed.
Why? Because of the human body’s remarkable ability to heal itself, if you give it the chance.
I’m here to help you do the same.
