E.M., England, UK
For the last 23 years I have had a bacterial infection in my gut which eventually led to Ulcerative Colitis at the age of 21, in addition to struggling with anorexia when I was in my teens the first 24 years of my life haven't been lived in the best health.
When I was ready to come to terms with both of these conditions, which together were not a good combination, I found your website.
 
For the last 2.5 years I have been attempting to follow your protocol for complete healing whilst still pushing myself without realising what a toxic habit I was in of forcing myself to do everything to the absolute best, if not beyond, my capabilities. Just before Christmas I contacted you regarding the struggles I had been having with not being able to tolerate the full spectrum of probiotics. Then I stopped trying, I stopped working, I stopped feeling that I should be different from the person I am and accepted that to gain health which I always knew was possible for me maybe I needed to change my approach to myself. 
 
Over the past 6 weeks I have gained an inner voice which I had long lost and grown so much as a person. Getting to grips with the idea of emotional healing has been very hard coming from a traditional English family where emotions are something for the weak! However, having always prided myself on this notion I now realise that there are different types of strength and in fact facing myself is the hardest thing I have ever done, and continue to do, and the strength that it has taken has been something which I didn't know I had.
 
From the bottom of my heart Jini I thank you!
