Having lived with Crohn’s Disease for 17 years, Sean has been through the highs and lows of having a chronic, autoimmune condition. Having gone through 2 x bowel resections, 6 x strictureplasties and been managed on a whole cocktail of oral medications, steroids and injections, Sean was always told that his Crohn’s Disease had nothing to do with diet, and that changing his diet would not make any difference to his disease progression or outcome.
However, Sean was sick of feeling on the verge of a flare up, despite being on a strong immune-suppressant, Humira, and seeing what we do daily at Metro, he decided to really look into how nutrition could assist with his disease, symptomatically, as well as physiologically.
After changing his diet, and adopting a protocol that we started for Sean, over the course of 18 months, his symptoms have completely disappeared, his inflammatory marker is normal, and he is now no longer on any medication to manage his Crohn’s.
This personal experience has given Sean the conviction and confidence in what Metro does, and what Metro offers as a company, and Sean has now become a firm advocate of nutrition, and what good nutrition can do for someone.
