Here’s Why Crohn’s & Ulcerative Colitis Patients Struggle With Mood Disorders

Have you been diagnosed with Crohn’s or Ulcerative Colitis? And also been diagnosed with a mood disorder? Depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder? Have you been struggling with the emotional component of this disease? Does it make it difficult for you to move into a healthier space, to remember to take your medications and to incorporate some of the lifestyle factors that you know you could change? But, because of your mental state, it’s a real struggle. 

This is a problem for many people with Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis. It’s a very important piece of the puzzle that needs to be addressed. It becomes very embarrassing for many people having to go through this. Many of the symptoms of this disease are very hard to deal with physically and psychologically. 

One of the most difficult things when you’re dealing with an illness is to also be dealing with an emotional component of that illness. Many people find it very difficult to motivate themselves to make those lifestyle changes that will help them. The reason for feeling so down on ourselves while having these diseases are from many things, two of the big reasons being:

  1. Vagus nerve 
  2. ¾ of our neurotransmitters are created in our gut

You become out of balance in the brain from these two areas being imbalanced themselves. That makes it difficult to think, to make good decisions, to cope, and to be happy. It becomes a negative downward spiral. I see it so often in Crohn’s patients. 

I wanted to bring this to light and bring this up as a conversation. This process needs to be intervened. 

If this is something that is going on with you and you need someone to talk to, I’m here to help. I understand what you’re going through. I’ve been there. The way it makes you feel should never be pushed aside.

How Healthy Are You Actually? Here’s How To Find Out…

How healthy are you, really?

I know…you feel pretty decent most days, you see your doctor 1-2 times a year, and you have a couple medications that you take on the regular.

Maybe you have a few aches and pains, some sinus issues, or you’re tired a lot of the time…but everyone has that, right? We just have to suck it up I guess. At least that’s what we’re made to believe. Let me tell you – NONE OF THIS IS TRUE!

Learn more by watching this short video…

I’m here to let you know that a lot of these chronic symptoms that we have or cope with each day, are all symptoms of a greater problem. It’s a sign that our body isn’t right. There’s issues in our bodies that need to be addressed.

These symptoms can be very subtle in the beginning but over time it can have a huge impact for the worse.

Because of what we’re told and are made to believe, we start to believe that all of these things are normal and there’s no real solutions. It’s just part of life!

Our body has the tendency to cope really well for a while but then at some point there’s no more biochemical give to cope. That’s usually the time we end up in an emergency room, the doctor’s office, or with a new diagnosis and medication.

One great thing that we functional medicine physicians have that your doctor may not is a medical symptoms questionnaire. It will point out areas of your life and body that are struggling. As a functional medicine physician, this is a tool that I use often in order to evaluate where a client is at on the health-illness spectrum.

I prefer to use natural means to improve the body’s processes, and in finding health and wellness.

I want to challenge you today to take a real look at how healthy you actually are.

Comment below or contact me and I’ll send you this questionnaire for free. As well, book a complimentary call with me so that we can get you on the right path to wellness. Book here – bit.ly/HowHealthyAreYouActually

Is Crohn’s Disease Or Ulcerative Colitis Taking Over Your Life? It Doesn’t Have To Be This Way & Here’s Why…

Have you been diagnosed with Crohn’s disease or Ulcerative Colitis, but not yet had surgery? Do you have pain every day of your life or many times during the week that are uncontrolled? Do you even have to cancel plans with friends and family because your symptoms are so bad?

If you continue down this path of illness, you’re 10 times more likely to develop colon cancer. You’re more likely to develop multiple autoimmune diseases. You can develop fistulas and infections that affect your whole body. These are all facts of life, among many more, for people with Crohn’s disease or Ulcerative Colitis.

It SHOULD NOT be that way!

To learn more, check out this short video…

My name is Dr. Christina Campbell and I’m here to tell you that there’s hope. I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease when I was 12 years old. From there I began my health journey. I was told this would be a disease I would have for the rest of my life. I was told I would be in pain for the rest of my life. I was told that I would likely be unable to have children because of the inflammation. I was told a lot of things.

These things don’t have to be true.

I began to have less pain, more energy, and felt healthier and happier. 

I rarely ever have pain anymore. I’m able to do so much more in my life, without having to maneuver around it because of my condition.

I found functional medicine where we really get to the root cause of your health issues. Not everyone who has Crohn’s disease or Ulcerative colitis will have the same symptoms or root causes. That’s why it’s so important to look at a person individually. Everyone’s different.

If you are ready to put your health first and learn more about improving your symptoms and gaining back energy, then please book a call with me for a complimentary consultation – bit.ly/CallDrCampbell
