Episode 3: Jen Bubert, 20-year Crohn’s Warrior


EPISODE 3 of the Crohn’s Fitness Food podcast is available today! 🎙

In this episode, my guest, Jen Bubert (find her on Instagram using @jenvsgut), share’s her experience in battling Crohn’s Disease for nearly 20 years. She has gone through the gamut of medications, clinical trials, surgery, and even tried to go it alone for a year. In this interview, she talks about what it was like to be diagnosed in high school, her struggles with medications, what led to her first surgical resection, and her experience with clinical trials.

Jen talks about how she’s learning to listen to her body, focusing on self care, and making fitness a major part of her life and part of her Crohn’s management. She also talks about her experience with the low FODMAP diet and how it helped her to understand what foods are bad/easy for her to digest.

Jen encourages others that no matter where you are, the most important thing is to stay focused on what your goals are and take it one day at a time.

I hope you enjoy this episode; if you do, be sure to subscribe to the Crohn’s Fitness Food podcast wherever you listen so that you don’t miss upcoming interviews with IBD patients.
