A deep dive into understanding and treating inflammatory bowel disease. This is a look at both standard western as well as naturopathic treatments for IBD.
Hi, I'm Dr. Ilana Gurevich,
At the age of 19, I began my journey into alternative medicine in a very personal way. After many years of living with terrible abdominal pain and fatigue, I was finally diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. Many medical doctors told me that the condition could never be fully controlled. This prognosis led me to my first encounter with alternative medicine. A naturopathic doctor and acupuncturist not only completely helped me achieve prolonged clinical remission of my Crohn’s disease, but also educated and inspired me to pursue my own path into alternative medicine. Ever since that day, I have dedicated my life to helping others restore their own health. I truly believe that your body has an innate ability to heal itself. It sometimes just needs to be reminded of that ability. My goal is to not only treat patients, but also to teach physicians what I have learned so that they too can be of service to this population
