When Shamiz Kachwalla experienced a serious health decline, doctors couldn’t figure out what was wrong with him. Pumping him full of meds, wanting to do surgery and basically searching for answers to what was causing Shamiz to lose weight, having as many as 30 plus bowel movements a day and getting sicker by the day, doctors were baffled.
After several months of not knowing what to do, Shamiz took matters into his own hands. Reading books, blogs, and articles, listening to podcasts and watching videos, Shamiz discovered that he could possibly heal himself by dramatically changing his eating protocol.
Not only did he begin the process of healing, he was also on a mission to share his story with anyone who needed to know the truth about ulcerative colitis.
In this episode, Shamiz shares the downward spiral his health took at an age when most young men have no reason to worry about their health. Find out why Shamiz is so passionate about sharing his message in order that others can take control of their own health.
