My Story

A few years ago, a loved one was diagnosed with a chronic inflammatory disorder. It was a difficult few months for us. He experienced pain, stress, anxiety and exhaustion. This was all before he was diagnosed. He retreated from social events and stopped doing the things he enjoyed. At first he didn’t know what was going wrong. It started with his hip joint, and then suddenly his lower back was sore and then his baby toe! It was confusing. My physiotherapy training gave me an idea of a possibly condition. His inflammatory markers were through the roof and gene testing confirmed my hypothesis.

Over the next few months, slowly but surely I helped him to get his life back on track. Understanding his pain experience played a huge part. What he was experiencing was completely normal, and now we were on a path to creating a life he wanted to live. Getting back to what he loved – trail running. Focusing on a healthy lifestyle was our main game – anti-inflammatory diet, moving his body daily, getting enough sleep and enjoying friends and family.

Fast forward a few months, he did his first 5km run. He was a bit sore, but felt a sense of accomplishment, joy and happiness reaching this milestone. We continued with this path and a year and half after that, he ran his first 35km trail run.

Since April 2019, he has been able to come off his chronic medication and just manage his condition with diet and lifestyle. We’re in remission and running marathons!
