Thank you for visiting my website. Even though there is a lot of reading here, all the information provided is important. I am a coach and personal trainer, specialising in working with people who suffer from medical conditions such as cardiac, cancer, or musculoskeletal. I work in a public health unit in the local authority that helps people rehab or prehab in a holistic way using exercise as a tool.
But my heart is with those who suffer from Ulcerative Colitis or Crohn’s disease. Mainly because I am one of those people. I have been there myself; I have been many times to hospital, taken various treatments, know-how horrific flareups are and I know all day-to-day struggles no matter in flare-up or remission.
Exercise has been an effective tool for me to cope better with IBD, and I strongly believe in its magical benefits. I use my knowledge of exercise and nutrition, both personal and professional, to help people with IBD improve their health.
Exercise can be beneficial for managing inflammatory bowel disease:
- Exercise has anti-inflammatory effects that may reduce IBD symptoms.
- Exercise can stimulate gut motility, reducing constipation and diarrhoea in IBD.
- Exercise can alleviate stress, anxiety, and depression common in IBD.
- Exercise can help strengthen bones and prevent osteoporosis in those with IBD.
- Exercise can improve quality of life by reducing symptoms, enhancing mood, and boosting energy.
I understand it may not be easy to be active with our condition, especially if you struggle with chronic fatigue. However, I am here to help, motivate and guide you through it. It really works.
