Hello! Dr. Troy here!
If you’re reading this, it’s likely you or someone you love has been dealing with chronic diarrhea, bowel urgency, Crohn’s, Colitis, or other digestive issues that have been affecting your life in key areas. For example, have you been avoiding and losing opportunities in important areas of your life, such as travel, work, and relationships? I would guess the answer is “yes.” I know because I’ve been there!
As you may know, I was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease when I was 20 years old, though I probably developed symptoms as young as 10-12 years old.
Crohn’s has affected my life in so many ways. One way I recall so vividly is from back when I was playing football in high school. During that time, I was experiencing stabbing pain in my abdomen and terrible bowel urgency. I had lost a ton of weight, and I was constantly weak and fatigued.
Thinking back, friends and teammates made jokes about my need to rush off to the bathroom during practice or my “pregame bathroom routine.” They also found it funny when I would show up somewhere with one sock on, because I had to use the other for toilet paper on the side of the road. I knew something wasn’t right because my performance didn’t reflect my ability or effort. I experienced extreme fatigue when running or lifting weights.
At this time, I also began to create this “lazy persona”, in which I pretended to be “too cool” to lift weights or try hard. Yes- you read that right! I actually changed how I projected myself to the outside world to cover up the embarrassing medical issues I was having. I can only guess how many opportunities I missed out on in that period of my life. That was a long time ago…even before I was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease.
Once I was diagnosed, I continued to have varying degrees of severity and flare ups. I was treated traditionally with medicine after medicine with no lasting improvements.
Looking back, it’s because my doctors and I all ignored the effects of things like stress and important tolls such as nutrition, mindset, etc.
Through the years, I gradually started learning about these things and what I could affect. I began to really take control of my health myself. Not without some struggle and lots of experimentation.
Because I saw how powerful natural health can be, I was led to becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic…one of the most positive outcomes of my Crohn’s diagnosis. I have incorporated the natural methods I’ve learned into my practice over the past 15 years and now offer them to my clients and patients. You can learn more about them here.
My programs have became so reliable for helping people heal that I felt it was my duty to take it outside of my local community and begin offering it online.
I feel it is my true calling to help others who are suffering as I once did. It’s the reason I was given the challenge of living with Crohn’s. I’m here to be of service and if anything, I hope my story gives others some hope and a little inspiration.
PS- If you’re interested in learning more about my methods….I’d love to chat. No sales pitch…no pressure…just a 15-minute call to connect as two humans who know suffering too well.
