I'd like to speak about my own mental health. I feel like some people misunderstand my condition, so I wanted to address the matter directly. Yes, I have a severely debilitating illness. Yes, I practically live in bed. No, I cannot go out and I cannot have visitors coming over without paying for it, but I am okay. Seriously.
In this interview series we explore how diet and chronic illness affect each other and today I have the honour of sharing Jo's story. Jo's appetite was severely affected by her mental health, but with the help of loved ones, she found a way to overcome it and get back to a place where she could once again enjoy a healthy diet.
When it comes to chronic illness, there is no one-size-fits-all solution, especially when it comes to healing through diet. It's up to us to try different approaches until we find our personal solution - the thing that our body responds to most positively.
I hope this series will inspire you to make changes to your diet too, you never know how much relief you could experience through just a few modificaitons. What you eat really can make a big difference!
