Yesterday I had the pleasure of speaking with Gina Rieg, owner of Simplistic Wholistic.  Gina is a Health and Nutrition Coach and she is also a GAPS patient who has been following GAPS to heal from Ulcerative Colitis.

Gina's digestive troubles began in 1999 with abdominal cramping.  Her disease progressed over the years and in the summer of 2006 she had a severe flair and ended up in the hospital.  The doctors said the last resort before surgery was to try Remicade and Gina began on a regimen of Remicade infusions every eight weeks. She continued to receive the infusions, masking the war going on in her body until the spring of 2010 when she had a “gut feeling” that it was time to search for a way to heal her body, instead of relying on a medication to tamp down symptoms.

From Gina's story at her blog:

Through the program at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, I was introduced to the teachings of Weston A. Price and the true meaning of health through traditional, nutrient-dense and real foods.   My eyes were dramatically and FINALLY opened because I THOUGHT that I was already eating healthfully and making good choices.  For years, I had been following what I now call the “mainstream health” advice.  Wow, did I ever discover the truth?  I embraced a new approach to health and lifestyle.  It resonated very deeply with me and my body – for good reason!  This was how my body was supposed to be nourished!

Gina's story is very inspirational and encouraging to those of us on GAPS.

Thanks Gina for taking the time to share your story with us!  You can find Gina online at Simplistic Wholistic and you can also find her on Facebook.
