Hi there! I'm Elisabeth, and in 2006, at 29, I was diagnosed with interstitial cystitis (IC). I endured debilitating pain for over a decade while trying to manage my symptoms, but my health continued deteriorating. It wasn't until an entire decade later that I was introduced to functional medicine and decided to change my diet and lifestyle significantly. As I witnessed my symptoms gradually improve, I became intrigued by the idea that I might have more control over my health than I had initially realized. This curiosity led me to delve into extensive research on the roles genetics, inflammation, immunity, proper supplementation, diet, pelvic floor dysfunction, infections, stress, and overall lifestyle play in an individual's well-being. After implementing these changes, my flares became rare, and I successfully put my IC into remission. 

Join me on a powerful and transformative journey in my book 'How I Got My Life Back' as I  share my inspiring triumph over interstitial cystitis (IC). This book offers invaluable insights and guidance, providing hope and practical solutions for those facing the challenges of IC.
