In today’s episode, Heather Hausenblas, Ph.D., shares her perspective and story as a mother of a son with Crohn’s disease. Her son, Tommy, was diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) three years ago at the age of 16. Heather shares how she helped navigate his health and ultimately chronicled their journey in her new book, Invisible Illness: An Insider’s Guide to Eliminating Overwhelm and Rediscovering the Path to Health and Happiness with an Autoimmune Disease.
In this episode, she shares tips for parents who have children with IBD, cooking for a family and journaling to track health and patterns. She is passionate about getting people talking about IBD and being more open to sharing their stories to help prevent others from suffering in silence for so long before seeking help.
