I was diagnosed with Crohn's, an autoimmune disease, when I was 22. As many of you know, I have lived with and managed this condition for 30 years. For the first fifteen, I was able to do it primarily through diet and natural remedies. Eventually, I needed to opt for surgery to improve the condition (once in 2009 and 2011). Each time this worked for a few years, but then inflammatory symptoms reappeared and worsened. Recently, things have gotten more challenging. This year, the Crohn's symptoms have flared again and I find myself in rapid decline, losing weight and in pain.

I do not have the option of more surgeries. And the prescribed medications I am now taking are not having a strong effect for the positive (indeed, considering the side effects, they may be more negative than positive). I need to seek another option.

Western medicine has helped me manage this condition for many years, but it is not set up to address the underlying causes of autoimmune diseases. An autoimmune disease is truly that: a state of dis-ease. For that, we need to have a truly holistic view of the body, mind and spirit.

Sanoviv Clinic is a state-of-the-healing-art Functional Medicine Hospital in Baja California. They offer a Digestive Wellness Program with a full team of medical professionals that approach healing the immune system holistically through a wide range of whole body approaches, including approaches based on complete blood work and hormone panels, specific heavy metal detoxes and personalized dietary cleanses and resets.

Sanoviv is my best bet for healing my own autoimmune condition. Functional Medicine like Sanoviv Clinic is not something traditional insurance covers, and it isn't something I alone have the means for at this point in my life. I'm turning to you, my community, to help me in this. The cost of the Digestive Wellness Program is $18,000, and I'm hoping to make this trip in early October. I will spend several weeks under their care.

I'm only 52 years old and I feel like I have a lot to offer to the world, but I need to have My Health so I can help create and make the world a better place. Thanks so much for your consideration... Much Love!

UUPDATE: Wow! I am completely humbled and just overwhelmed with gratitude for all of the support! So far we have raised more than I even asked for. I am working with the hospital in Mexico trying to get in as soon as possible. I will apply the contributions donated beyond my goal towards a healing place for me to land when I get back to NorCal....True North Healing Center in Santa Rosa (link below).

My hope is the stay there will allow for a deeper detox and dietary reset so that I can be successful with my new diet/lifestyle instead of slipping back.

Thanks SO MUCH for your generosity and helping make this possible. It means The World to me.

Love,

Cole
