Third River Health
We had our wake-up call, now we want you you to have yours
We began our journey to health and abundance while looking for natural remedies for Crohn’s disease. While it hasn't been easy, it has been the wake-up call we needed to make drastic changes for not just our physical health, but mental, emotional, spiritual, financial, and relational. If that sounds like you, come do life with us?
Our "Wake-Up!" Moment
A Crohn’s Disease Diagnosis
We got married in 2009 and life was busy. Danielle was working full-time as an RN on the night shift, whie also attending graduate school full time. Blake was a regional manager of a food & beverage franchise in Colorado.
Danielle started having severe abdominal pain and blood in her stool. After multiple doctor appointments, tests, and unanswered questions she ended up in the ER. At that time, they found an abscess on her intestine which later led to a diagnosis of Crohn’s disease.
The immediate treatment was major abdominal surgery. Danielle had 8 inches of her small intestine and 4 inches of her colon removed. Directly after the surgery, she asked her Gastrointestinal doctor for any recommended lifestyle and diet changes to assist in managing her Crohn’s disease.
He replied with a very surprising response that "there are no real diet changes." The feeling of being dumbfounded is an understatement.
There has to be Natural Remedies for Crohn’s Disease
We thought for sure that what she ate, her levels of stress from family, school, work, and irregular sleep schedules played a role, but the doctor felt this was not important to address at this time. He explained his recommendation: an intense medication and the risk for cancer as a side effect.
Wait, that’s it? Really? What about her diet? Surely, there is more that we could do to help manage this. There just had to be natural remedies or holistic treatment options for Crohn’s disease.
Managing Crohn’s Disease
So Danielle began her journey investigating alternative options and started implementing them into our day to day lives.
It has been eight years and three children later, and Danielle has been successful at managing her Crohn’s disease without conventional medical treatments. Nope! No high-risk medications, and no further surgeries.
She is highly passionate about helping other autoimmune warriors learn about how to support the body and allow it to heal itself. But she also strives to help people shift to a proactive approach for their health.
Wake-Up! Life Doesn't Have To Be This Way.
