ARE YOU OR DO YOU KNOW SOMEONE LIVING WITH CROHN’S DISEASE OR ULCERATIVE COLITIS (Inflammatory Bowel Disease – IBD) THAT STRIVES TO LIVE WELL DESPITE THEIR DIAGNOSIS? This can mean a whole lot ofthings to different people. We at Tri Nutrition want to create a space where we can meet, connect with, follow and support those Living Well with IBD and learn from each other 🙂 .  Seeing how others can Live Well with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis inspires us to also build courage, strength and faith in ourselves to Live Well, too. To us, Living Well with IBD means living as best that we possibly can with where we currently are in our journey right now.

Tri-Nutrition’s “Be Inspired” campaign has been designed to:

  1. Raise awareness of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
  2. Spotlight international Leaders Living Well with Crohn’s and colitis: share their story, their top tips for others with IBD, and offer a way to connect and follow them (as a virtual ‘mentor’ and inspirator).
  3. Provide a dose of positivity, “light” and inspiration to the often very negative, difficult, emotional and life-changing events that someone with IBD experiences.

You’ve got to meet Mike! He’s a powerlifter with the world on his shoulders and will never give up!

“Where there’s a will, there’s a way! How I manage my Crohn’s with pushing my strength to its limits is simple, I have an unbreakable will to succeed. I refuse to quit and every time I have a setback that’s motivation to come back stronger than before! This is simply something trying to stop me and I refuse to stop! Have a positive attitude, believe in yourself, and get pissed and show whatever is trying to hold you back that you refuse to be slowed down!” – Mike
