About IBD

Feb 25, 2020

Finding meaning in an illness journey can be a catalyst for purpose and hope. Dr Selvi Vasudevan endured severe Crohn’s disease that resulted in several surgeries and a relentless series of complications. She was on her chosen path when the disease stole her aspirations and left her without direction. A recommitment to herself and her own healing journey helped her find her purpose again as a healer and prompted her to found Cooking With Crohn’s in order to share what she’s learned with the IBD community.

Information discussed in this episode includes erythrocyte sedimentation rate (sed rate), normal white blood cell (WBC) count, bowel perforation, wound closing by secondary intention, and ileostomy surgery.
